Dubbed Version: How good?

Is the dubbed version any good? Or should I work on getting a fansub?

You could of course buy the official subbed release...
I've never seen the dubbed version, so I can't judge about the dubbing quality, but I always prefer the sub...

Having seen the entire series subtitled, I can't recommend anything other than that. it's just too funny in the Japanese, and I feel an English dub would ruin it. Pick up the DVD's if you can, otherwise go subtitled VHS.

It's a mixed bag with ADV, whichever you use. The timing of the subtitles is a little off and even the subtitled version has the overlays. The dub isn't bad, but it's a different feel than the original. I prefer the Japanese myself; they got some prime talent working on this show.

Okay then, looks like its time to start pressuring the execs of my local anime society to copy the fansubbed version.

Supposedly the dub gets a lot better in the laterr volumes, but why bother when the sub is so much better?

NO! The dubb is much better than the subb. the subbb just sounds like a bunch of japaneese people speaking things you can't understand very well. The dubb is just brilliant. Spike spencer does a great voice and Admiral Munetake is unreplacable. In my opinion it's not the language it's the voice actors. When i used to only buy Manga video anime i thought doing a good dubb was impossible and subbs were always superior. But after hearing ADV visions Evangellion and Nadesico compared to their original subs the dubbs were much better. Ruri's kawai voice in the dubb was irreplacable^^

If you think the EVA dub is good i wonder what you would think of the cowboy bebop dub, the best dub so far.

ZRO Limit they ---- over advs voice stdio its not funny

Think of comparing a two thousand tag watch to a 30 buck copy

The only adv dub i really like is rurouni kenshin oav, but of course they gave it a ---- name to make up for the good dub, the name being Samurai X. The best english VA i've heard did seijuro hiko in that

as an otaku i usually prefer subbed, but nadesico's dubbing is surprisingly good. the voices really bring out character.
