    The Naruto dub tends to annoy me to the point where I wonder why I watch it. Bleach, not so much. The only times I really hate Bleach is when a character gets like a whole minute to talk to themself and it feels like they go on for eternity. D=

    I got another one, but this one is probably an anime you've never heard about.

    The anime Cybersix had a REALLY good dub job, as it was actually made in conjunction by Canadian and Japanese animators. It translates equally well between English and Japanese, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a Japanese version.

    Good dubs: Full Metal Alchemist and Dragonball Z

    Dragonball Z, the voice acting is pretty cheesey, but I have heard some of the original Japanese and tbh I prefer hearing "KAMEHAMEHAAA....TIMES FOUR!!" in English.
    FMA was good too, the voices weren't annoying, I actually watched half the series in English before being forced to switch to subs, which was quite weird to get used to for the first couple of episodes.

    Bad dubs: Bleach. My god some of the voices, they're terrible, I think the worst has to go to Inoue though, she is just so high pitched and her voice is just plain annoying.
    I wasn't even considering watching it in English anyway after having seen 140+ episodes before even discovering there's actually a dub out there, but still, I suppose it's amusing just to see how bad it gets when you meet more of the characters. Japanese ftw.

    I can tell i've got a hell of a lot more Anime to watch, haven't heard of any of those before! Also never heard any dubbed openings before, that's just plain wrong..

    Unless you watched something other than the English version, this is a really dumb claim. In the English dub, only the insert songs in episode 13 were changed. The opening and ending stayed the same.

    Personally, I find that the Hellsing Ultimate OVA #3 english dub (preview) gave most of the Wild Geese operatives higher pitched voices than in the original Japanese version... it sounded somewhat strange to me, but that's my opinion.

    Gotta agree with you on the Naruto thing. I'm naturally biased against Naruto anyways cause it's the utmost overrated thing since Gak. But why is Naruto yelling ALL THE TIME!!!

    Actually The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya had one of the best dubbings.

    Hmm ...

    Best:

    1. Fullmetal Alchemist ~ Pretty much the pedigree: the standard that all dubs should follow. The actors took the material seriously and most importantly - sounded like they had fun doing it.

    2. Cowboy Bebop ~ Perfect choices for the characters - I couldn't imagine them having any other voices. Blum is a master.

    3. Excel Saga ~ Another top notch effort on the part of a cast that took the job seriously but still had a great time - Hell - the original English VO for Excel blew out her vocal cords during taping and they had to replace her! PAIN FOR ART!

    4. Berserk ~ I couldn't imagine this dark medieval fantasy in Japanese.

    5. Witchblade ~ Misane sounds hotter moaning with pleasure in English than she does in Japanese. Plus – there were a few lines in English that had were funny as Hell: “What the crap?!” and “What, this douche bag?” Plus – the other characters started calling Misane “Melanie” on account of her huge breasts. Being an English speaker – this running joke translates better than others.

    James / Meowth from Pokemon: I LOVE these two. Just to hear these two talk was the only reason I would ever watch Pokemon. Shame that Adam Blaustein got a sex change and couldn’t do Meowth anymore. ( Also the reason he couldn’t do Lezard in Valkyrie Profile 2 ::cry:: )

    Worse:

    I can always find merit with dubs – but there are those that are notoriously bad – people have already pointed them out. Here are a few roles that come to mind …

    Keifer Sutherland as Ross Syllabus in Armitage III: Wow Keifer – you were hard up for cash pre-24 eh? Once more with feeling please.

    Most of the cast of .hack//sign except Sora: Horrible attempt. I love .hack and they pissed all over it. Though - the guy that did Sora was pretty damn good.
    I aim to misbehave.

    The best dub I've seen so far would be The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - The sub version was just so brilliant I was worried if the dub would be crap. Turns out that it was dubbed very well and the voice actors fit their characters perfectly. I also have to say that the Lucky Star dub was done really well since it can be hard to transfer cultural jokes and gags to another culture; for this anime they did it perfectly.

    A dub that really disappointed me was Air. The voice acting wasn't THAT terrible but it just didn't fit with the characters. There wasn't that intense emotion I felt when the anime tells the story in Japanese than in English but I still cried in both.

    I never thought Sailor Moon or Pokemon to be really bad dubs. Probably because I grew up watching the English version. Though I can point out thier silly mistakes like "Nothing beats a jelly-filled doughnut" when its a riceball in Brocks hand; or the infamous "sandwich" replacements -.- Though the english version of pokemon has quite alot of changes that it confuses me when I watch the Japanese version.
