    Bad: Naruto ( eng. ), Eva ( eng. ), blue Gender (English) and with bleach I'm on the fence. sometimes its good other times i hate them. and some of the earliest gundam's
    Good: Naruto (jap), Eva (jap), Full metal alchemist (both), Full metal panic (both),Trigun (eng.), Samurai 7 (both) and gundam Seed and some of the 0080th MS team, and some of the later gundams. their are others but i tend to be snooty about dubbing since i have been watching them since the 80's and have seen the acting go from okish to amazing in some cases.

    I thought the voice acting on Evangelion was pretty good actually.

    well , i understand were you are coming from. it wasn't god awful. It's just as i said. i tend to be a bit of a snob about it. and some of the supporting characters suck. ritsuko and Gendo i think had better voices in the Japanese version. that's it. it wasn't like it was horrid. i just want to see what the new ova's sound like. and i am for once ( cause usually i don't ) in favor of the Japanese track over the English? odd. trust me i find it at odd's with my usual feelings but if you have the chance watch eva in Japanese. it just fits better with characters like gendo and others. But that's just personal opinion.

    Best Dub ever... bible black. The dubbing was sooo bad it was good. This is the first time I actually laughed at bad dubbing. I reccomend everyone to wtch it even if you aren't into hentai, just listen to the horibble-ness.

    I think Pokemon had an alright dub in terms of voices, but the localisation was horrible; "When you have rice, you make doughnuts!"

    Best dubs? I thought Chobits was good, Cowboy Bebop was very good, and I reallyenjoyed Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, some people were put off by the southern accents, but as someone pointed out earlier in the topic, the southern american accent is the western equivalent of the osaka dialect used in the original version. Alos, they handled the localisation really well, only changing cultural references where there waslittle chance of them being understood, and the equivalent references they made were well chosen and phrased in general.
    I don't want to control everything, I simply want people and events to mold themselves to my desires.

    Well, the one thing about dubs that we should be grateful for its that they are windows to the originals. I would not have know half these shows if they weren't dubbed, good or bad.

    Oh no, I still have my list.

    Best dubs go to Digimon, Trinity Blood, and Samurai Pizza Cats.

    Worst dub period goes to Card CAPTORS. What a disgrace

    I would say for the worst dub the original 4Kids handling of One Piece, but that's too obvious. Battle Arena Toshinden, that was...inexcusible.

    I'd have to say all dubs suck - with the exception of Full Metal Alchemist because they actually took it seriously, it wasn't just for kicks and giggles or money. I'm not sure of subs though because I never had a reason to get one with subs since Japanese is my second language.

    Hello, foolishly ignorant person.

    Maybe you should try actually, you know, watching a few shows dubbed before you make dumb claims like that. What you're saying may have been true 10+ years ago, but dubs have come a long way since then, and most high-profile shows that are released now tend to be competent, with a few even being noticeably better than the Japanese counterparts.

    Wow, you must have never watched, Cowboy Bebop, for one, any of the shows people said were good. How about you read the thread, do a little research, then make an educated assertion.

    Every season of Digimon after the 2nd was terrible. I don't think there really was a "good" season of SD. And Megaman EXE was plain stupid.

    hmm, I liked Digimon season 4 with the power rings. I thought the story was good and the action was great. SD Gundam, I'm not sure if I've watched it. And I liked Megaman.EXE I don't think the dubbing was all that bad, nor was the show so rotten.

    Yeah, Digimon 1 & 2 were the best seasons altogether. No matter how good the rest were dubbed (and I asmit, they were), the show altogether after season 2 was cockadookie

    I may be biased by saying Naruto's dub is crap, but it is. Not that I hate the show (which I do, most overrated anime series of this century), but why is the titular character yelling ALL THE TIME? What's he SO mad about that he's on a constant attempt to outline it?

    I support you with that. Naruto & Bleach are the worst dubs (for me) that i ever hear.

    The voices just sound... ankward.

    Favourites:
    Full Metal Alchemist wasn't bad at all.
    Neither was FFVII: Advent Children.
    I can't say I like most dubs otherwise.

    Haaaates:
    Descendants of Darkness [ Muraki had the NERDIEST voice. WTF. ]
    Cardcaptor Sakura [ PARDON ME. Cardcaptors, I suppose. D< ]
    Too many others to list, that was just the big one. xx ;
