I tried watching Spice and Wolf dubbed the other day, and I just couldnt make it. Its not that the voices sounded off, but the interactions and conversations dont always sound fluent or natural. I find this to be the case most of the time when I try to watch a dub these days.

The Haruhi dub is ok as far as English dubs go but the Japanese voices are still much better.

I saw an ad on YouTube for Toaru Majutsu no Index/A Certain Magical Index in English today, and I was terrified at what they did with Index. ;____________;

They should stop trying to do the squeeky high pitched thing for girls and find a more natural voice that fits...
...
Or find some new talent...

Before I would have just said all dubs were crap without listening to them but after listening to Hellsing dubbed i can listen to both subbed and dubbed (most of the time anyway)
And on a side if there is one anime that the dubbed is hands down better than the subbed its Panty and Stocking

Implying the Japanese don't do the exact same thing.

Being a purist subbie/raw watcher is elitist, and anyone who still thinks that English dubs of anime are Macekres is stuck in the '90s. (An exception: Odex, due to bad acting and the barbaric censorship laws. Why the hell do Singaporeans put up with that instead of embracing the superiority of America's freedoms?)

Shinichiro Watanabe is on record as preferring the English dub of Cowboy Bebop over the Japanese track. There are Japanese Code Geass fans who prefer the English audio over the Japanese. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and Afro Samurai got English audio tracks before the Japanese dubs were recorded. (Bloodlust got both English AND Cantonese tracks before moonspeak.) Me? I was born a dub fan and I'll die a dub fan. I'll watch subs if there's no dub available.

It's not just anime. Walt Disney once said that he liked the Mexican Spanish dub of Sleeping Beauty better than the English track.

It doesn't really matter if it's subbed or dubbed. however, people tend to listen to how people sound first then what is said. so one annoyingly voiced main character could ruin an entire thing. subs you listen with your eyes, you pay less attention to the voice. or i could have no idea what i'm talking about.

You were on the right track. People tend to go with what they listen to first and disregard all the others as inferior. At least with anime. If you don't know the language being spoken you can't pick up on certain things that distinguish the words being spoken from something you might know the language of. You'd be more quick to judge something in your own language than others, is what I'm trying to say.

When it comes to anime i really prefer dubs but I have no problem with subs. When I'm watching non-animated movies with real people then I really prefer subs. I'm fairly new to anime but I haven't watched an anime where I thought the dub was terrible, although the dubbing on "No. 6" could have been done better in my opinion.
