    Thumbs up which do you prefer? American voices or Japanese voices

    I hear the ending and beginning theme for anime and I bought a new american cd and I was wondering which would you prefer. Japanese voices or American. Which do you think is better?

    Japanese voice actors/actresses. The voices always seem to fit the character better (in my experience).

    Yes, Japanese voices, because Geneon can hire some pretty crappy people for their dubs >_> And the script for some animes that Funimation dubs doesn't makes sense sometimes, which will give you some misconceptions

    I'm more inclined toward English voices for many of my favorites. I liked DBZ's voices, Gundam Wing's voices and Ghost in the Shell's english voices were perfect. I just watched Akira in english and didn't really like the voices (though maybe it was the bad lipsincing that did it). Honestly, I don't pay attention to the Japanese voices when watching subbed animes because I'm too busy trying to read the subs and watch the images.

    Japanese voices are better. I hate American voices in anime. They just don't bring justice to Japanese characters. (Some of the time.)

    I think it all depends on the anime itself.
    Like, for example...
    Naruto is a definite sub choice for me--because I cannot stand the English voices for most of the characters. But, Cowboy Bebop is better dubbed, imo.

    Original Japanese voices. Sometimes the voices the companies make are unfitting for the character.

    Well guys, I'd like to see some examples of good/bad anime dubs. We all have our preferences and we all know the japanese dub lovers love to make generalizations but let's debate some of these animes. I'd be willing to go back and see some old animes in japanese and english and see which really is better.

    I've already listed a few above that I liked in english (Jokes seem funnier when you don't read them hence the comedic value of standup comedy).

    How about this for a twist: I have heard that sometimes the voice actors do both Japanese and English. Here's another couple questions: which animes have this (I thought I heard Inuyasha did that)? and which way do they sound better in that light?

    Japanese all the way, not just because I`m learning the language but since I just enjoy it more in general... and most american voice actors are absolutely horrible.

    American voices are more relatable and identifiable.

    Tohru was fine...compared to Yuki!! Yuki's voice was just WRONG.

    Yes, it's Japanese all the way for me too.

    It may be because I live Japan and I see them in Japanese first, but I just think that the Japanese voice actors match the characters better. I mean, I understand if they can't pronounce names properly and stuff, but to choose someone who's voice totally doesn't match the character, then that is just, like I said above, WRONG!!

    Yes, anime dubs either make me laugh, or mad. It's one or the other. But I keep watching them in hope that one day, miraculously, I will run across a dub that is as good as the original.
    ELPHABA LIVES!!

    Japanese voices are better, Americans always "punk out" the characters

    How so?

    IMO, Japanese dubs tend to sound more like caricatures.

    In general:

    80's-90's: subs
    this decade: dubs

    Dub VAs have come a long way since a while ago, and now I think the majority of them are at least decent, if not excellent. However, I've noticed seiyus just don't impress me the way they used to. Some of their voices barely match their characters (DBZ's Goku and FMA's Ed are good examples, and am I the only one who notices that Sasuke sounds like a 30 year old?), and sometimes they get so over-dramatic, it's laughable. There are still good subs out there, but I'm finding more and more often that I prefer the dub. The only "2000 and before" dubs I would have preferred over the sub are Cowboy Bebop and FLCL.
    My name is Kakashi Hatake. What I like....I don't feel like telling you that. My dreams for the future...hmm, never really thought about that. As for my hobbies...well, I have many hobbies.

    It really depends on the American company, but I will always agree with Japanese Dubbs.
    But I really love the english voices for some characters, like Kurama, Kiba (Wolf's Rain), Akito (Fruba). All in all, I only really favor Funimation's voices, but sometimes I don't like how they dubb some animes. D:

    Japanese, just like why i choose subs over dubs coz some of em' can be really crappy and you don't get the funny effects. i know that prince of tennis is gonna come out on animax, i mean the dubbed version. i'm gonna see how it goes. I don't think it'll be as funny as the original one.
    Lol...I'm Back!
    FYI:Shana FTW!:3
