    Have you heard the old dubs? God, the ones before Cartoon Network . . . wooden acting, bad writing, and they would even try to cover the opening/closing songs in English, usually with a bad singer. Sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it.

    One Piece had a lot of problems, though really it was one big problem: 4Kids. They made the voices bad, as well as the writing, sound, etc. The new voice cast should be a lot better.

    Anyways, about dubs, I thought about something just a few minutes ago, something that will undoubtedly always have me watching subs over dubs - honorifics, such as "san," "kun," "sensei," etc. They say a lot about the relationships between the characters, but no dub even tries to work them in (at least it seems that way to me). Azumanga Daioh did it a little by having the characters sometimes use "miss" and of course "teacher" (to replace "sensei"), but it's nowhere near the same.

    The whole opening/closing theme song thing reminds me of the Rurouni Kenshin dub, but I do think the Cowboy Bebop one was okay,and in the dub I think Ed's character was dones the best.

    Why don't more people read these mangas?

    I prefer subs rather than dubs because I find the voicing pretty horrifying these days...

    I prefer subtitles because dubbed voices just don't fit the characters. For example, in Naruto, the Naruto character sounds like a wimp in English. Mean while in Japanese Naruto sounds normal.

    I don't speak a word of Japanese, but it's a lot better to hear as the voice fits the characters and the action.

    I've heard people say they love the FMA dub, and then I've heard people say they hate it. I'm not sure how I feel about the dub (love the original Japanese though), but I just think it's odd that people are split over how the dub sounds.

    I prefer Subbed from far... it's just like you are watching the original anime, no changes from other people. I also watch anime dubbed (in spanish or catalan) in the TV, but not very often.

    (wow, 2 people voted for Dubbed :p)
