    Well, if Kingdom Hearts is any indicator of American cartoon characters speaking Japanese, I'd say it'd be pretty damn funny, but overall, not very "painful to the ears." Sure, it'd be a bit weird, but that would be it, in my case at least. If I did not like it, I'd just listen to the English voice track. Same goes for Hollywood movies, although I still have yet to see one dubbed in Japanese (bet they're hilarious though).

    The same applies for anime. I prefer dubbed works, but if I find that I just do not like a certain dub, I'll just switch over to subs. None of this drama about how dubs ruin everything they touch. None of that putting of Japanese animation on a pedestal above everything else, and how the Japanese language is the most beautiful language in the entire world - just a simple switch to a more pleasurable experience.

    Do you think that Japanese sub American shows like CSI or HEROES?

    My tendency to blame the author on character bashing is always prevalent and did I mention 4 is an unlucky number.

    I wouldn't know, since I've never bothered asking a native - hell, I don't even know if those shows are being broadcast in Japan to begin with. And I'm not going to make assumptions based on absolutely no knowledge or information.

    Simply put, I have no idea, nor do I really care. Their watching American shows in whatever format they please is not bothering me in the slightest, so I don't feel a need to pursue answers on my behalf. But if someone wishes to go and create an unbiased survey of the situation for everyone to hear/read, then by all means, go for it. It might enlighten us all at some minuscule level .
