I think that both are great, the dub version doesn't sound weird like other animes, and the sub (original) is, well, the original!

They both have good parts and Bad parts. Subbed Has no parts missing or blocked out. Dubbed they Make it more suitable for the Kids. I prefer Subbed for somethings but Dubbed is just as good....

I thought that the subbed and dubbed episodes are the same? dubbed cut out parts?

yes they do. While Watching Code Geass you can clearly see they blurred out vilettas Breasts when she is laying down on oogies bed. and they make un necisary blurs on Kallins breasts. they dont show anything on her to often and when they think its gonna show they blur anyways. now uncut DvDs might not have that issue. but the ones they have out for Adult Swim are cut and everything for these purposes...IDK why since its on during the times kids are supposed to be in bed. its Adult Shows they dont need to blur it...But its Also Cartoon Network so its for Kids in general anyways.

The dub on DVD is uncut, they only blurred it for TV Broadcast since you cannot show nudity on American broadcast TV (at least on that channel)

I prefer the dub, of course I have reasons for doing so too. Probably my biggest reason is that the dub comes on tv here in the US, and I prefer watching it on tv to watching it on my comp. I do like the voices better too, its just opinion, but I feel that they fit better. And as much as I love subs, I do get tired of reading the subs all the time, its nice to watch and already understand it without it having to be translated for me. Plus sometimes I can just listen while rewatching an episode and know whats going on, whereas I can't do this with a sub.

I do have a couple problems with the sub too. For one, I'm the kind of person who gets annoyed when one voice actor does 2 parts in 2 different shows, and sounds exactly the same, because I am reminded of that previous character when I watch the show. And Jun Fukuyama also does the voice of Kei in Special A, and since Kei and Lelouch are drastically different, I just couldn't watch it.

And the major problem I have with subs, is that, maybe it is because being a voice actor is a good and popular profession in Japan, but many subs I've watched, the characters may be teenagers, but they don't sound like teenagers, they sound much much older. Its the same with Code Geass for me, to me, they sound too old. They sound like they're 24-30 when they're much younger. Especially Lelouch. No 17 year old has a voice THAT deep, and just look at Lelouch! He's not exactly the most GAR character ever. XD He definitely does not look like the kind of character who would have a deep voice!

Well if you watch Code Geass just for the fanservice, then I suppose that poses a problem, but is that really such a big factor in watching CG?

You DO know that they MAKE the DVDs with the Subs as well dont you? I OWN a bunch of anime which I purchased from stores. i swear no one EVER pays any attention or understands what things mean. makes me wonder if you all really understand there differences at all? I make a statement or comment and you just ASSume i only watch them for the fanservices? hell half the time the Fan Subs are way off based from the actual subs from the companies that subtitle them. ALSO the Dubbed Versions are also rescripted to remove swearing if there IS any.

Yeah I know, but why buy the DVDs when it comes on, on tv? I wasn't saying you watched it for the fanservice, but isn't that one of the differences? If there is no problem with there being less fanservice then the differences between the dub and sub won't be much of a problem, is all I meant.

Well to me, it doesn't really make a difference if there is swearing or not, it doesn't take away from the overall dialogue.

And you don't have to get all offended, my comments were not directed at anyone specifically. I was just stating my opinion.

Well I personally like dub better. For some reasons:

1) Dont have to read subs
2) The voices actually sound pretty good

Don't forget, in Episode 3, (i think) with the champagne, in the dubbed ver. they add, "relax its just sparkling grape juice" yet continue to fight over it...
