What anime are better/just as good with the English dub?

Might want to rephrase your question, not sure anyone is going to understand it.

I do

I got the usual ones: Cowboy Bebop, Black Lagoon, Fullmetal Alchemist, Baccano, Trigun, Golden Boy, Fullmetal Panic, you know, the ones everybody talks about when addressing this subject. I also really like the English dub for Code Geass.

I like the English dub for Aesthetica of a Rogue hero better than the Japanese. Same with DBZ. I can't stand the Japanese DBZ voices. I know I am blasphemous.

As the post above me Code Geass voices are good too, but I prefer the Japanese.

I think in the end this all comes down to personal preferance.

I would say Black-lagoon and Jormungand for starters.

I find anime that is based outside of japan and features foreigners to be best done in English.

Another big one is anime that does not have moe characters; English is not a language you can really make cute; Japanese on the other hand is very rythmatic and melodic; Its much easier to put emphasis on certain sounds.

I normally watch animes twice, Once in the original audio (japanese) and then i switch to the english audio the second watch.

That's a good way of thinking about it.

It makes sense that anime based outside of Japan makes for a good English dub.

Guess that's why I enjoyed Baccano so much.

Thanks

I'm offering up Kuroshitsuji, as it hasn't been mentioned yet. Quite alot of effort was put into adopting accents and dialects. Texan J. Michael Tatum (Sebastian) deserves special mention for utilizing a posh English accent that he learned from his childhood speech therapist.

Hellsing's dub is rather famous, as well.


A personal favorite of mine is that of School Rumble. Perhaps because it's an over-the-top comedy, but the English cast is wonderfully hilarious and dynamic.



Quite a few Miyazaki films have top-tier actors. Even Liam Neeson in Ponyo, for goodness' sake.

None.

Depends on your taste that is all, I personally get "weirded out" when watching Anime in English.
It just sounds wrong in my ears.
(Plus I want subtitles on my screen when watching.)

It's pretty subjective. Pretty much everything I watch in English first I think is better in English... If I had to pick a show I think is legitimately "better", I guess I might say....

Haibane Renmei? I remember that I watched this both subbed and dubbed and preferred the dub almost infinitely more for some reason. Don't remember what it was specifically though... I think it was either Reki or Rakka's voice. Maybe it was Kana though...

Not sure what to tell you. If I watch it in dubbed in english first, then watching it in japanese sounds weird to me, and vice versa. I know not everyone experiences watching anime the same way, but thats how it feels to me.

However, I personally think that whenever the characters aren't japanese, then the english dub tends to make the series sound more...right i guess?
I actually enjoyed Infinite Stratos dubbed in English better than Japanese. The setting is supposed to be an international school, so hearing the dialogue in other accents (despite obviously being fake) made the show feel right to me.

The fairy tail dub was very well done. Not even my dub hating friends will deny that.
