Cowboy Bebop was good
Saiyuki cause Greg Ayres was really funny as Goku and he hates babies.. we have that in common.
I couldn't say about anything newer, last new dub I heard was Durarara!! and it made my ears bleed!

Cowboy Bebop - Great
Samurai Champloo - Great
Dragon Ball Z - Infinitely better than the Japanese one, I could not stand Goku's original voice. Vegeta's voice was awesome as well.
Lupin the III - Only heard the dubbed version, but I loved that cartoon when it was on Cartoon Network.

actually... cowboy bebop was ok... i stand corrected


Ok??!
It was actually better than the original Japanese version.


i never saw the japanese one. maybe thats what screwed me on all the shows is watching the japanese version than seeing the dub and it never living up to the japanese level of voice acting.... the us actors usually seem like they are just sitting in a chair bored outta their mind when they do it.

Full metal alchemist wasnt bad either.... but then again i didnt watch the japanese one until brotherhood.... even then i still thought the english FMA wasnt bad

FMA and Cowboy Bebop both had great English voice casts,but if you prefer the Japanese version there's nothing wrong with that.Although I must agree that I also enjoyed FMA more in Japanese,but that might be because i listened to that version first and got used to their voices.

Gotta agree with Cowboy bebop
another good one is rurouni kenshin which features quite a lot of the cast from cowboy bebop

I don't exactly mind the lupin dub but the sub is so much better as lupin is much funnier in japanese, which doesn't come across as much in the dub.

I'd actually say I absolutely loved Outlaw Star's English voice cast. ABSOLUTELY LOVED.
Especially Aisha's VA. She brought the hyper-active cat-girl to life for me.

GaoGaiGar had a decent dub. Would've loved to see them do the second half or FINAL because they were gradually improving as it went on. Taiga's my favorite Dan Green role to boot. Sinterniklaas did a really enjoyable Guy. Sure, he wasn't as hotblooded as Hiyama (There's a reason his nickname's the King of Braves) but he brought his own take on the character.

Also; Burst Angel.
By god, Burst Angel.

My favorite dub ever.

Monica Rial did a excellent Jo, even though she was playing against type. I totally can't see anyone else voicing her. Jamie Marchi did a really enjoyable Meg as well.

Also; Mandatory mention of Full Metal Panic.That dub is one of the dubs I always watch over the Japanese audio track. Luci Christian and Patton had chemistry. Then again, they'd also played opposites in Gravion (as Luna and Eiji respectively)

That would be Steve Blum the man...he is very funny and down to earth

and I also prefer the english adr of Kenshin , the seiyuu voice for him is too female, I cant stand it..

I'd also prefer to watch subs, but there are a handful of good dubs as well, but my 2 favorite dubbers are:

I'm a fan of Kirby Morrow's dubs:
Gundam Wing = Trowa Barton
Escaflowne = Van Fanel
Inu Yasha = Miroku
Project Arms = Ryo Takatsuki
Dragon Ball Z = Goku
Dragon Ball Z Kai = Trunks
X-men: Evolution (I know it's not anime) = Scott

As well as a lot of Steven J. Blum's works:
Cowboy Bebop = Spike Spiegel
Ghost in the Shell = Laughing Man (Aoi)
Guyver = Akito Makishima
Last Exile = Vincent Arthai
Naruto = Zabuza and Orochimaru
Samurai Champloo = Mugen
Rurouni Kenshin = Shishio Makoto
Street Fighter Alpha = Ken
Wolf's Rain = Darcia
ATLA: Legend of Korra = Amon
Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children = Vincent Valentine

I am absolutely in love with their deep sexy voices.

I have mentioned Mary, but sometimes I call her Madam Director and then Major every time I see her. Everyone in Ghost in the Shell are really good.
