for me it's all about whether the voices match the characters it doesn't matter if it's dubbed or subbed all that matters is the voices match

You took the words out of my mouth. I mean, I have watched some shows where I hated the dub and liked the sub. Or where I've hated the sub and liked the dub (I can't think of any shows that apply to that at the moment, but I know I've run into a few. I have also watched many different shows ounce in dub and in sub because I liked them both quite a bit. Luck for my I've never run into a show that had both bad sub and dub.

i normally only watch in dubs but recently i have watched a few subs(like the bleach OVA and the school rumble third trimester) and now i don't mind watching short series in subs such as dance in the vampire bund. but i dont plan on switching from bleach dubs to subs since im so used to their english voices; same with one piece.

I typically watch action-oriented anime, and having to read takes away from what's going on and you can miss out on cool looking scenes. I definitely prefer Dub, if the official dub is terrible, well, I guess I just don't watch the show.

I prefer dubbed anime, because subtitles are annoying to me. Although, one thing I love about the Subbed version is when they Japanese actor says something in English. It's hilarious.

But, I can watch subbed anime only if it's not dubbed, and everyone keeps saying how great it is.

Subs don't bother me to much the reading after a while feels automatic you don't even notice you are reading, but you cant do anything else, and I like to eat or drink while watching so I usually watch the rub a dub dub version.

its depends.. i like both ill watch and see sometimes the engish is good sometimes its just annoying for instance tsubasa chronicles is great subbed but the english version grates on my nerves the voices are all wrong and then bleach and naruto are great in both.

It depends on the anime really. The ones iv seen so far, Bleach, Naruto, trinity blood, full metal alchemist, Hell Girl, DBZ and so on.. have all done a great work with englishing dubbing and i do have a few of bleach and FMA which are subbed. In my opinion i reckon dub because its just easier eventhough i study japanese. lol

To tell the truth I prefer Dubs but I can watch subs don't get me wrong but I like my language a little better, but the one thing is alot of the same voice actors are popping up in a bunch of anime's it is making the english voice acting kind of monotonous and lame...

It all comes down to a case of what works best. In some cases, Dubs are better than subs, such as Black Lagoon, whereas others are better subbed, such as Bleach. Of course, at the end of the day, it all comes down to personal taste

I honestly like them both, you get more of a feel for the story in subbed and as I only know some Japenese I still have to glance at the subs >.<

where as in the Dubbed you don't have the problem of reading the words, but in some cases you are stuck with really bad dubbs that make no sence

I prefer dubbed over subbed but I will watch subbed if I can't get a series I want in dubbed. This is purely because I will do other stuff like homework and assignments while watching all the shows.

Me personaly, I prefer eng dub, well I speak and understand english,

however, I like some of the voice actors that do the english dubs ^^

they do a really good job in some animes, not all mind you

cough ( naruto ) cough , IMHO naruto should be in japanese ^^

the english dub voices dont seem to fit very well..

I prefer dub simply because i am often doing 2 or 3 dozen other things and cannot give it my full attention so with dub i can have it going in the back ground without needing to pay close attention to it.

I far prefer the sub to the dub. I love the Japanese language for one, it just sounds so beautiful to me and I don't really mind reading. I do however prefer some of my anime dubbed. I only like a few of the dubbing companies tho so it kinda limits what I like. :P

ah, the long lasting debate. I cannot chose generally if I like dubbed or subtitled anime better. It depends on the voice actors and how well I think they fit the characters. Sometimes it is english, sometimes it is japanese. None of them are universally bad or good, just the individual person who brings the character to life.

I prefer dubbed if one of my favorite voice actors, like Steve Blum (Spike from Cowboy Bebop) is in it, or if the English dubbing is of really great quality. I'll only check out subbed or fan-subbed anime if the the dubbed version really sucks, so it's a case by case kind of thing for me.

I can't really choose. I think I just prefer whoever seems to do a better job or which voice better fits the characters or setting.

I prefer the sub of Ouran High, but I prefer the dub of Lucky Star because there were some jokes I understood better in English.
