FAVORITE dubs!
« on: May 16, 2010, 06:42:56 pm »
Gyah, so much dub hate. Let's get some dub LOVE in here! Heck, didn't the Cowboy Bebop director say he liked the English dub better than the Japanese?

Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Eureka SeveN, Peach Girl, xxxholic, Samurai Champloo, Ghost in the Shell, and Fullmetal Alchemist are all shows with dubs I quite enjoy, off the top of my head.

Code Geass is my favorite dub ever, I far prefer watching it dubbed over subbed <3

Also, I lovelovelove the english voice cast for the .hack//G.U. games~

Ghost in the Shell. Most assuredly my favorite dub of all. And I liked Chobits too. But afterwards I switched over to subs, and really don't see much dubs anymore. However I do like Fruits Basket, and especially when Shigure says "High school girls, high school girls!" It just totally cracks me up.

Oh, and Afro Samurai, how can you not love Samuel L. Jackson?

Thornton, Patton, Haag, Blum, and the entire cast of G.I.T.S are my favored dub actors.
Have Fun

Samurai 7 had an AMAZING dub. Far superior to the subs, in my opinion.

Other good ones include:
Burst Angel
Hellsing
Elfen Lied
Irresponsible Captain Tylor
Paranoia Agent
Heat Guy J
and of course, all Studio Ghibli films.

Most of the stuff I like has a really good dub, but there are always exceptions. *coughcoughNOEINANDHIGURASHI!cough*

Kino's Journey - No over-the-top voice acting.  Very nice, subtle, and fits the situations perfectly.

Tenchi Muyo OVA - The older first 13 episodes at least.  Couldn't get over the new Ryoko voice.  I can stand it but it just sounds so off from the first.

DEVIL MAY CRY DUB was like super uber epic.

Dragon Ball Z dub is super cool.

FMA is super cool.

Naruto is cool also. Just except for Naruto's voice.....But like I can listen to Kakashi talk all day.

Cowboy Bebop was so awesome.

Eureka seveN.

Pokemon.....The old ones.  You can hear Ash's old voice on Dinosaur king. Infact you can hear lots of the Pokemon crew on that.

Yu-Gi-Oh...Most of the characters..  Like Joey!

DeathNote.

Now....I will be waiting if Dragon Ball Kai dubbed and hoping ir will be good.. Because this time the Japanese screwed up their own version.. Goku's voice is HECKA HIGH.   Bardocks is HIGHER.

I agree with Cowboy Bebop, that dub was really well done.

The other dub I honestly prefer to the japanese is Slayers.  That's probably because Slayers was my first anime and the only way I could watch it was on rented VHS tapes, which were dubbed or nothing!  And the video store had maybe 3 rows of anime total.  You kids these days with your DVDs, you don't know how good you have it, haha. 

(In comes somebody even older than me going on about having to order fansubs on VHS tapes because you couldn't even buy them...)

1. Outlaw Star
2. Yu-Gi-Oh
3, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
4. Trigun
5. Ronin Warriors
6, Teknoman
7, Gundam Wing
8. Monile Fighter: G-Gundam.
9. Tenchi Muyo
10. Code Geass

I'm sure someone already mentioned them, buuuut...
Yu Yu Hakusho. One of the first animes I ever got into, one of the first I watched through to the end, it was amazing. Awesome dubbed songs, awesome voice acting, lovely job.
Trigun, but that could just be because I'm a total fangirl for Johnny Yong Bosch.
Cowboy Bebop was done fairly well, IMO.
Whisper of the Heart was done quite well, I enjoyed it immensely.
Case Closed...I disliked the acting itself (most of it, anyway -- there were some amazing voices in there), but the songs were done beautifully.
And, uh...One Piece. Which makes me a bit sad, considering I don't actually like the anime/manga.

I hate most english dubs,
but I think the english dub for Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi was really well done.
I think Haruhi and DragonBallZ had decent english dubs too.

BECK is fantastic in English. It being a show about a band, they had to dub all the songs, and managed to make them sound WAY better than the Japanese versions.

The first anime that I ever actually watched in Japanese is Kuroshitsuji, and I am such a huge fan that I'm a little worried about the dub. I'm very happy with the cast (well done FUNimation!!!  :D) but I'm strangely true to the original sometimes (more than sometimes . . . . And that applies to so much) that I'm just hoping for the best.
I did think that the Death Note dub was extremely well done. I loved how L's voice was just so cool and smooth. It fit his character perfectly. And Ryuk was just awesome.  ;)

I am amazed no one has said Baccano! yet. It was done fantastically. One of my fave dubs ever.

That being said, other amazing dubs include Fullmetal Panic, Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Hetalia, Princess Mononoke, and Soul Eater

I've recently finished El-Hazard: The Wanderers in English, and am going through it again.  I thought things were done really well (except the opening and closing theme songs; ugh).

I used to be obsessed with Mew Mew Power! XD Come to think of it, now I feel lame because I watched the 4kids dub and actually liked the opening and ending. XD
