Cardcaptors - I just wanted to point out this was not a dubbing issue, it was a TV channel issue. The TV station that aired it had certian requirements for all cartoons, so Card Captor Sakrua was heavily edited to incorporate them. The same thing happens with many Adult Swim cartoons too, especially how the intro and ending songs are severly abridged and sped up to make room for commercials. I noticed how a Japanese variant of jin-kan-pon was edited completely out so they wouldn't have to explain what was going on on one show.

And to whoever said Evangelion had a good dub... I don't understand how you can think that's a good dub. Everyone in that show (Even all the old guys...) sounds like they are being voiced by 14 year olds and Asuka's voice is absolutely terrible, gives me a headache.

The dub voices are so lifeless and are completely out of touch with the situation and they sound so rehearsed. Also I remember a part where you work for the Lucky Strike and if someone comes up to you and asks to play the main character says something like "Do you want to play, the rules are..." then theres about a 10 second break and the other person says "I know what the rules are".
Bah, they don't even have an option to turn on subtitles and leave the Japanese and Chinese voices, if they did that game would've been perfect.

If you want to hear bad game acting, check out House Of The Dead 2 for the Dreamcast, my lord thats some horrible acting.

Just about ANY of the MST3K Japanese horror films are a case in point. My particular favorite is "Prince of Space" (especailly Krankor and that preposterous laugh!), although "Invasion of the Neptune Men" comes in a close second (those blasted kids!)
I love Ghost In The Shell, but the only sore point there is the voices of the Tachikoma... why make them sound like a bunch of 10-year-old girls at a slumber party??

I think the worst must be Furiza from DBZ. I hate his voice in English. It hurts my ears!

No. Never watch the new Naruto dub. His voice. is so. disturbing.
<< I had nightmares about it, and I'm not even kidding.
It is SO horrible. It's amazing how a show as amazing as Naruto can be destroyed with bad dubbing. Also, Setsuko from Hotaru no Haka has a rather obnoxious voice in the dubbing.
