    Well, if one never made the mistake of watching anything in multiple languages, the quality of dubs is usually only a matter of opinion. Also, Hellsing.

    Although I didnt watch it dubbed, in every DVD review of Elfen Lied they say that the dub was really good.


    Dont ever watch Naruto dubbed

    Best:
    La Chevalier D'Eon (I find it kinda jarring to watch it in Japanese than in English.)
    FullMetal Alchemist (Had a very good dub, and it didn't make my ears bleed.)
    Utawarerumono (Has a great dub so far.)

    There alot of dubs that I like, but typing them all would give me carpel tunnel syndrome. >_>;;

    Worst:
    Bible Black (It was hysterically bad. I know it's a hentai anime, so dub-wise I shouldn't have expected much, but COME ON.)

    This has to be the worst dub ever. But then again, it was horrible in Japanese too. XD

    I'll give you Seras being terrible, but the rest of the characters are damn near perfect.

    EDIT: And the new OVA series kicks the shit out of the old one, so even the criticism of Seras doesn't hold up as much anymore.

    A lot of dubs are extremely bad, to name a few there are Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Elfen Lied. However, there are good ones, though in very limited numbers. Example: Digimon and Hellsing.

    You want a bad dub? Try Spider Riders. Not a very good anime (but not one of my worst), but it got torn to shreds by 4Kids. I hate that group.

    Best dub? Vision of Escaflowne. That anime just rocked, and still is one of my old favorites.

    The worst dub I've ever heard was Saikano, but then the original Japanese was particularly bad as well so eh. Galaxy Angel didn't really do anything for me either.

    Best would probably be Cowboy Bebop. Excel Saga is pretty good too.

    Worst Dub: For me it has to be FLCL. God that was atrocious.

    Best: Cowboy Bebop did a pretty good job. And Spike just has the best voice.

    But I dunno about you guys, but one dub I can't live without is the Golden Boy anime. That shit was well done. "STUDY STUDY STUDY!"

    Sailor Moon dub. . .first anime I ever saw(when it was on USA network way back when) and came close to turning me off of anime forever because of Usagi's English voice actress.

    The best is Full Metal Panic! because the voices fit really well.

    The worst is .Hack//Legend Of The Twilight because the voices were headache-inducing.

    You must be the first person in history to think Gundam Wing had a good dub...

    But whatever. None of my business.

    Hey, I'll give you leeway to think whatever you like, but please never bring up that opinion crap with me. I will always challenge you, and you will always take the worst of it.

    Now, for the record, I HATE dubs. Even the best of dub is crap simply because it is a dub.

    That said, the only halfway decent dub I've seen is Full Metal Alchemist.

    As far as really crappy dub jobs go? The worst will always be anything by 4Kids. Shaman King, Naruto, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh... Absolute shit.

    What really sucks about it is those are some of my favorite animes and mangas. Of course, the manga translations (and editing) always leave a bit to be desired - fansubs and scanslations FTW!

    Congratulations. You are now a card-carrying member of the Moron Club. As a member of the MC, you are entitled to certain "benefits," including mockery and disdainful glares from all the more sensible members of the community.

    If by 'the more sensible members', you are including yourself, then I have no problem being excluded by you. I would much rather state an opinion about the actual topic of the thread than make a personal attack without contributing anything of real value.

    Why don't you step down from your soapbox and enlighten us with what YOUR favorite and least favorite dubs are - since that is the topic of the thread.

    Been there and done that in threads long past. Dig them up if you care so much.

    Besides, blindly pointing out what you like without creating any real discussion is far worse than being argumentative.
