Just mostly i love subes on anime but there are a few i love better dubbed. Certaintly almost everyone can agree that dragon ball is better dubbed. Sorry but i'm not interested in chi chi having a deeper voice then goku in the japanese version. Yu yu hakasho is also another one. I never got invested in the japanese voises of them. same goes with full metal panic and rorouni kenshin. So is there any anime you like better dubbed then subbed? or am I alone

typically when funimation dubs something they tend to know what they are doing and typically use voices that are of interest and suits the character, as some of the others, however, some it's a living nightmare and you must watch the subs, such as the final season of Sailormoon back in the day, the version I got was a nightmare (yay for hand me downs). but I've gotten so use to subbed that I don't even notice anymore and tend to just stick with the subs. unless it's a really great something, that when the dubs are found, will I bother to watch it again. there again some stuff has yet to come dubbed or ever will, and in order to get the jokes, or just want to expand your viewing you will watch the subs or remain in the dark. I rather enjoy watching things, so I'll give anything a try, as a speed reader I'm fine with subs. even when they do subs on the top and bottom of the screen.

There are plenty of anime that I enjoy either the dub or sub better and some that I can easily switch back and forth with no problem.

Hopefully people can be mature enough to not turn this into a complete mess and get it locked.

Dubs are bad, for the most part. The voices in a subbed are so well done that when I watch dubs I get triggered by the voice. Though there are some dubs that are good (cowboy bebop) other than that they're pretty shit unless we are talking about that cringey piece of trash black clover.

One can always hope!

I've changed the title to better match what the OP actually says in the opening post rather than the more general "sub v dub" title it originally had -- which might just as well say "put up your dukes and fight!"

I like the dubs more for The Wallflower, School Rumble and Baka and Test.

Honestly, it often ends up that I like whichever version I see first.
I think High School DxD is funnier with the dubbed version.

hmm Ninja edit to the title makes me ninja edit my post

There are certainly good dubs out there. Like you mentioned, Dragon Ball has terrific casting. Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo also have good dubs too. I also feel like My Hero Academia got a pretty good dub cast too. However, it's just certain jokes and gags that are in the original Japanese dub of My Hero that work and only work with the original dub, so I watch the subs in that case. But, I have no problem switching back and forth when the dubs are well executed.

I think it may depend on what you saw/heard first. A certain nostalgia factor if you will. Although there certainly are outliers.

I for one saw many of my first animes dubbed, like DBZ, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop etc. which I either can't watch subbed or haven't watched subbed since I really like the dub. (also can't stand Goku's voice in Japanese)
But after getting hooked on anime, subbed is mainly the way to go, especially since that's what you get first, because translations take time, so the first experience with a new anime (for me) is subbed.

Dragon Ball Z, Baccano! & Golden Boy Are the only 3 dubs I totally prefer over subbed. For most shows I've never heard both to compare or I don't really care.

I can't stand most dubbings. The voice actors they get for English sound bland or off the mark. The ONLY English dubbings I like over sub are the Studio Ghibli movies. There are some decently dubbed animes out there, but I will generally take sub over dub any time.

I have none where the dub is subjectively better though there are some like Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop where I like both the subbed and dubbed version equally well.

Baccano.
I actually watched subbed first and still think the dub is the superior version. A bunch of American gangsters and European immigrants work a lot better with the appropriate accent in English than they do in Japanese.

Yu Yu Hakusho.
Just great chemistry with the cast.

DBZ.
Grandma Goku just doesn't work. Props to the lady for doing all the power up screaming, but it just doesn't sound right for Goku to still sound like he's ten.

Yu-Gi-Oh.
The dub voice actors could yell the phonebook at each other and I'd listen to it. Plus the censoring and changes are equal parts hilarious (Kaiba jumping out of a window to avoid finger guns) and unintentionally brilliant (your soul being trapped in a nightmare realm for an undisclosed period of time is actually worse than dying).

Digimon.
Yeah, this is one giant helping of nostalgia.

I generally will watch dubbed when I rewatch shows because it means I can focus more on the artwork or watch it while multitasking (I don't know Japanese).
