The worst dub for any anime I've ever watched would probably be Pokémon. Watching the first few seasons as a little kid, I was fine with how they sounded, I could care less. However, as I got older, they screwed around with the voice cast, and now everybody sounds like they're either twenty-eight or seven.

However, there are a few voice dubs other than that that make me want to throw my remote at the TV. A few characters on Naruto have a voice that cause my ears to bleed, particularly Naruto himself.

There aren't really a whole lot of other anime voice dubs that drive me nuts, I watch most anime series in their original Japanese versions nowadays.
Don't try to argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Sorry, You are ALL WRONG.

The worst Dubs are all Hentai. Especially the ones that say on the cover, "With the voices of Real American Porn actors." They don't even try!

I'm not a racist. My point was simply that anyone who has seen or knows the Japanese version of One Pieces knows for a fact that Sanji can't speak English to save his life, and that is in a very strong Japanese accent when he attempts it.

I did not say that black people can't voice act in general, just not for this particular dub role.

I guess I didn't get my point across properly, and that wasn't the best way to put it. I'm sorry if I did offend anyone, that wasn't my intention and I should have been less careless. I'll edit that out of my original post right away.

I have recently seen an episode of Mahou Sensei Negima that was dubbed, and the protagonist just had a whiny sound in his voice. In the Japanese version, though, I did have one complaint: in the English portion of the dialog, Negi's accent is totally wrong for a Welsh charecter. (I would have thought it would be simple to check with the BBC, find a kid roughly the right age (boy or girl wouldn't matter at that age) to read the 2 or 3 lines.) This problem was corrected in the English dub. Although I am unable to determine if it is a perfect correction, for my ears, it is a good match.

Did I forget to mention Usagi from Sailor Moon? Because I really meant to mention Usagi from Sailor Moon. Could a voice get any less awesome?

And what was with her random up-and-down vocal trends? No teenage girl I've ever met speaks like that!! Unless they're doing an impression.

To be honest, there was always at least one voice that I couldn't stand in an anime. And to be even more honest... I never have the patience for anime. The one or two times I saw everything available in a series, it was through great annoyance to myself (Trigun being the only exception to this rule; if you didn't cry when Wolfwood died, you're either a man or no friend of mine). I would much rather play a video game than watch a television program, be it anime or otherwise. Interactive storylines for the win!

I think Sanji is okay.

The one that scared me was the temporary voice actor of One Piece's Chopper in somewhere at 200-300 episode. I'm glad it didn't last long. :)

Also, I once saw one Love Hina episode with English dubs, omg.
It's just so terrible because the speech sounds like that it would have been recorded with some shitty recorder and the actors sounded like some random person picked up from streets.

I don't watch dubbed anime if I can help it, but I thought Kero's voice from Card Captors was horrible. He sounded like a surfer dude instead of a cute little what-ever-he-is.

I haven't seen much DUB animes, however, last time, actually it was yesterday I encountered a DUB anime of Golden Boy. It was that main character that annoyed me with his voive (and he was perverted as hell). XD He probably was the most annoying DUB character so far ... And I don't plan on watching it again.

Mad Dog from Yugioh. He is an adult with large muscles and scars but talks like a baby in the dub.

Usagi from Sailor Moon *shudders* it's too deep. I like Neji's Japanese voice better than his English voice. I do however, like Jiraiya's english voice. Sakura's is ok.


Ooooh, i was waiting for someone to mention it...
dont get me wrong, I love the series to death, but gah, Usagi and Chibi-usa's voice could shatter eardrums.

It makes me almost glad that Sailorstars wasnt dubbed, but Ive seen it already so.. :D

Though Naruto's & Kakashi's DUB voice really is much more better than the Japanese version. Especially Naruto's seem to be quite identical to the Japanese version. Oh, and I really love the phrase:"Believe it!"

Koyuki from BECK is horrible in the english dub. especially when he trys to sing. It's one of those voices that you have to mute when he tries.
