That is totally true. It sounds so nice in the original, but the dub says kaKAHHHHshi, it completely puts the stress in the wrong place, it's awful.Kakashi's name has been particuarly butchered.
Anything relating to Anime or Manga - what's new, what you like, etc...
Naruto's voice in the dub is terrible - it's all high pitched and Americanized and nerdy. Whereas in the Japanese, it's really quite awesome, and just generally gives him so much more credibility.

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!
Try this one on for size. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrwSwOA7XQY

Joe Queens rulz.
Anyway, other than that watching Ichi the Killer dubbed is always fun because tough little yakuzas with deep british accents is incredible.
I guess this is kinda off topic, but I recently watched Samurai X:Trust and Betrayal and was amazed at the dubbing. While the dubbing wasn't as good as the Japanese version, it actually was comparable. I was surprised that an anime with so much Japanese terminology could be dubbed so well and incorporate cultural Japanese nuases. The animation and music were absolutely stunning by the way. Highly recommend it.
See, that's just it. After studying psychology and neuroscience for so long, and after listening to people complain about dubbing for so long, you eventually realize that humans are much more wired for noticing differences in stimuli than their independent qualities. And here it's no different. Seems like whatever you watch an anime in first, either Japanese or English or whatever, that's what you like, and other dubs must try to match that exactly (which is impossible) or else it sucks. Case in point: I like the English dubs for many animes, even Naruto, and I love the dub for Abenobashi. But I started watching most animes I've seen in English first on TV. When I started watching Inuyasha in Japanese, for example, I found Inuyasha's voice lacking. And so on.Shidonii Hirohara wrote:

Actually, when I started watching Naruto in Japanese, he reminded me of that German kid who was screaming at his computer game in that one popular video. うるさいと思います。
