Thumbs up Favorite Dub

I'm not much of a dub fan, but I must admit that Wings of Honnemaise was excelllently dubbed and I prefer the dub to the sub in that particular instance....................

But, I'd still rather watch subbed for everything else.

Anything that Streamline released was extremely well done (are they still around?!) They were responsible for Akira, Fist of the NorthStar and Castle of Cagliostro as far as I know. Other good ones are Patlabor 1 & 2, Wings of Honneamise (as stated above) and Trigun and Evangelion is also quite well done.

I really liked the Samurai X, Tenchi OVA, and Cowboy Bebop dubs.

i usually dislike dubs but I must say that the Tenchi OAV and El Hazard were really well done. Pretty much every thing released by Pioneer is acceptable, they seem to associated with a good studio.

The Cowboy Bebop dub seemed pretty OK, it's the best one I've seen. Another good one is the Gundam Wing dub, some of the voices weren't the best, but to me it's the best dub to ever air on TV. It was very close to the original and it was great the way they showed the uncut version at night.

The Eva dubs aren't bad at all. The GW dubs were some of the best I've heard, especially Duo's and Noin's.

Mad Bull's dub is priddy damn funny, though.

I thought Cowboy Bebop was good. Also Gundam Wing and Outlaw Star weren't bad.

A lot of times it isn't the case that the Dubs are bad, but rather the original voice actors are so much better (example, Trigun).

Cowboy Bebop has the best dub.Every voice is done so well that It's hard to tell if the anime was ever in Japanese before it was dubbed.

I also thought that the dub to Princess Mononoke and Kiki's delivery Service were quite good.

Wings of Honneamise was well done too.

other good dubs I've heard:

Gundam Wing
Big O
Macross Plus
Ranma 1/2
Castle of Cagliostro
Serial Experiments Lain
