    Best Dub

    Probably a very mainstream view but I have to say Cowboy Bebop.

    Spirited Away had a really really sucky dub...
    Why do you call me mad when I say what I wish and do what I want? You are the ones deluding yourselves with your ideas of social norms and fear of being yourselves, struggling to become a facsimile of what you presume as 'normal'.

    Best in my opinion? Dragonball Z. Followed closely by Full Metal Alchemist and then Megaman X: The Day of Sigma. Bleach is pretty good too.

    Worst would have to be Neon Genesis Evangelion. There's probably one with dubbing I liked less, but that's the one I can think of at the moment that had a dub that I didn't like.

    Honestly, I haven't watched much dubbed anime, or anime in general. =/

    Ok dubs but not so good: Fruits Basket was alright but I like the Japanese more. It was kind of bad because of I did not like the how they pronounced some names like how they pronounced Ayame = 'Ah-ya-me' (Japanese) to 'Ei-ya-me' (English)

    Ah My Goddess: I dont like the OVA that much but I can slightly tolerate the TV one. But I like the Japanese more.

    Good: I actually like the dub of Princess Mononoke

    Bad: Azumanga Daioh (Osaka's accent and the misconception of English and Japanese thingy)

    4Kids anime dubs - Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Mew Mew Power etc.

    Cardcaptors - Second worst dub next to Sailor Moon (BTW both animes were dubbed by Canadians) - Removed episodes, pronounciation changes (eg. Sakura to SaKUra and Kero-chan to KEE-roh lol), bad voices. I loved Kero-chan's Osaka-ben! I hate the guy who voice Dragon Booster because he voiced KEE-roh *pukes* Oh and terrible dialogue changes

    Sailor Moon - Reason (coming from a Sailor Moon fan): as mentioned in the quote below - There were 200 eps in the original so basically over 30 episodes were out (including the entire Stars)

    Quote Originally Posted by MoonlightW View Post

    This is one of my favorites, but the dubs just raped everything beyond comprehension. I have never seen anything that changed so much between translation that it was completely unrecognizable, but this one just takes the cake.

    Let me start with the DiC dub...

    First of all, they cut about ten thousand episodes out... That was just ridiculous. Sailor Moon wasn't meant to be a show for five-year-olds, but they canned every single episode that had anything derogatory in it. Of course, that's probably for the best. I would've hated to see the editing they would have had to go through.

    Now for the names... Amy, Raye, Mina - Ami, Rei, Minako = Just fine... And then we have LITA... WTF? Who names someone Lita? And then there's the completely retarded name they gave the Dark Kingdom- "Negaverse." What the hell is a Negaverse? Let's just make up everything we can, yay!

    Another thing, no one could ever just "die." Everyone had to disappear or something else. Because people never die, everyone knows that.

    Naru: "You'll have to kill me first!"
    Molly: "You'll have to DESTROY me first!"
    I think I was destroyed on the inside a little bit after that one.

    Oh, and on the subject of "Molly", what the hell was up with her accent? No one in Japan has that accent...

    Oh wait. I forgot. DiC thought they had to completely erase any evidence that the series took place in Japan. They cut out scenes that had any type of Japanese characters on signs or anything. My question is, umm... Why? What was the point?

    There was one good thing about the DiC dub. Usagi's voice in the beginning was spot-on. Too bad that first VA only lasted about 10 episodes and then was replaced by the horrendous Terri Hawks. *throws up*

    Now for the Cloverway dub. They at least didn't cut out every episode that had a bit of violence, and that was a good thing. The thing that killed it for me was the terrible voice acting, namely Usagi's and Ami's. They were TERRIBLE! How did the girl who did Usagi's voice get the job? She sounded like she was choking to death.

    Oh, and "This is the most difficult challenge planet power has ever faced." What?! What the hell is planet power?!

    One more thing was that Sailor Jupiter's attack changed with every episode. Her attack name completely changed at random for no reason. I never understood any of this.

    Well, that concludes my rant. Here's a summary- Sailor Moon's English dub was completely awful.
    Those reasons why Sailor Moon English Adaptation is the worst dub ever!

    PS DONT GET ME STARTED ON THE INFAMOUS 'DAY OF DESTINY' episode, which proves that Sailor Moon English dub is Horrendous and terrible

    I prefer the japanese dub of Azumanga Daioh but I don't hate the English dub. The reason they gave Osaka a southern accent was to show that she has a different accent then the rest of the cast. There have been several anime dubs that do this and they will often use an American southern accent to represent an Osakan one. I'm not saying that your dislike of it is wrong I'm just pointing out something you might not have noticed.

    Best:
    Sgt. Frog
    Crayon Shin-chan
    Baccano!
    Monster
    Cowboy Bebop

    Worst:
    Suzumiya Haruhi

    Also, I think the Sailor Moon dub VOICES were great. They just had a shitty script to work with because loledits.

    It'd be awesome if they could do an uncut redub with the VAs. Kinda like DBZ has done a million times.

    I haven't watched enough anime dubs to know which are bad and which are worst but I will say Naruto dubbed made me really sad and angry. The dubbing in the English version sucks major balls. The best I have watched or seen is so far :

    Best :
    Bleach (it's actually pretty good)
    Ah My Goddess!
    Initial D (it's alright)
    DearS
    Girl's Bravo

    Worst :
    Naruto
    It's absolutely necessary
    That we let go of ourselves- and it can't be done,
    Not by anything that we call doing it, acting, willing,
    Or even just accepting things

    The one and only time when I've preferred dub to sub is: 'The Heroic Legend of Arislan' (or Arslan Senki). But that's probably just prejudice coz the cast were mainly made up of English actors!!

    When I looked at the cast-list, one of those actors was none other than Jason Isaacs (best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the HP films). Classy!

    Mind you, they use well-known film/tv actors to dub most of the Ghibli films and a lot of those dubs have been sucky anyway. So it's no guarantee.
