I don't watch dubbed anime that often, but I have been watching the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX lately, and I will admit it, I like it! It's hilarious and the voices fit the characters. The dub has a genial sense of humor, and that's why I like it.

The GX dub has seem pretty great moments, I haven't watched past season 1 but I've seen a playlist of clips on YouTube and man those got me laughing. An old friend of mine said that some dub lines sound like they're straight from a sitcom, and I kinda enjoy that kind of thing more than just watching a normal subbed anime sometimes.

For my pick, this scene is so silly and dumb and I couldn't pass up any opportunity to mention it in a thread.

Hellsing Ultimate, it ranges from fantastically authentic to outrageously ridiculous and I love it for it. Not many anime have Kari Wahlgren singing German opera in them, either!

Anything with Crispin Freeman and/or without Yuri Lowenthal in it is generally good though tbh.

Soul Eater was soo good and quite faithful to the original. I loved it as much as the Japanese version. Very good dub imo!!

Durarara for sure. It was very well done, and I love it. Also, the Bleach dub, too, is one of my favorites. It's just really good for the time it came out. Also, any dub with Johnny Yong Bosch in it? I'll watch that over the Japanese version in a heartbeat /bias.

Oh Yu Yu Hakusho, without a doubt. I don't think I've ever seen a dub take a script and make it so much more fun and also performed with such energy and gusto while still keeping the characters in-tact. Easily a gold standard for dubs for me.

Baccano! obviously comes close since I genuinely think it's one of the best dubs to grace the market and is probably also something I would consider a gold standard.

I haven't watched a whole lot of dubbed anime series really, but the one that does stand out above them all is Yu-Gi-Oh GX, it just feels like such a comedy. It did bless us with the GOAT The Chazz after all

I can't believe I watched Durarara without knowing it has a dub ;-; I'll watch it in the near future.

About dubbed anime, I think FMA: Brotherhood, Hunter x Hunter, Violet Evergarden and Monster are really good. The voices for each character feel natural and doesn't feel forced.

Probably the most fun I have had watching a show. It is also kind of necessary to watch the dub unless you like pausing. The characters talk over each other a lot.

Addendum: Attack on Titan has a really good dub. I don't know why, but I just couldn't watch the Japanese version for some reason, I found it not that great.

For me it's Violet Evergarden and HxH. I love both of them and I have watched Durarara and it's really good. God Eater too.
My conclusion is I can't chose a specific one because there are many like FMA and many more.
Time passes, people move. Like a river's flow, it never ends. A childish mind will turn to noble ambition. Young love will become deep affection. The clear water's surface reflects growth. Now listen to the Serenade of water to reflect upon yourself.

dragon ball z, yu yu hakusho, baccano. but if its anything old you def have to watch it in dub, for the nostalgia.

almost forgot steins gate, that was a weird one, the dub voices were so good they almost sounded like the sub characters just in english.

Until you hear the big guys japanese va. lol. Took some getting used to.

Aside from obvious mentions like Cowboy Bebop, I really enjoyed Kaguya-sama Love Is War’s dub. The rewrites stayed true to the original, while making it more humorous for western audiences. The narrator was practically his own character.

I liked the German dub of the first couple seasons of One Piece. Don't know about the later ones, though, as I switched to the manga at some point. I also liked the little of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX we got dubbed here, as well.

English dub for InuYasha I liked a lot. Same with Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Tenchi Muyo, and most older anime. I dunno about today's anime stuff.

I've barely watched English dubs so I only have a few to mention but I agree that the dub for Yu Yu Hakusho was better than the sub. They really brought the characters to life. Other than that, I remember when I first started watching anime that the dub for Ouran High School Host Club felt very natural and well done. I've never watched it subbed but they did a good job.

I can't speak for the actual anime as I haven't watched it in dub yet but the bloopers for the Ace Attorney dub are a goldmine. I have never laughed so hard in my life, the dynamic of the cast in the bloopers is perfect. Bless the VA for Phoenix Wright. I might start watching it in dub just to appreciate the actual voice actors more.

YYH is one I forgot to add. I agree the dub for YYH is better than the sub. As far as Ouran I agree there too. Phoenix Wright and his Eng Dub VA is amazing.

I didn't know there was a Kirby anime :O

Meanwhile I discovered Vinland Saga has a dub now, that's nice so far.
