Top 10 Best English Dubs of Anime


The Top Ten

1 Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

This anime set up all English dubs by being the first to be perfect. I think it should be #1 for its legendary step in anime.

This is the best english dub you will ever hear and I 100% recommend watching the dub of Cowboy Bebop instead of the Japanese version. - Rue

2 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood more.

It's absolutely perfect. Every voice fits each character so well, it's (in my opinion) better than the Japanese dub.

3 Code Geass Code Geass Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, often referred to as simply Code Geass, is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi, and written by Ichirō Ōkouchi, with original character designs by manga authors Clamp.

Codw geass is one of the best anime ever made! Aside from it is made with factual basis, it also has the right mixture of family matters and romance... Go CODE GEASS!

4 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

The Newcomers

? My Hero Academia My Hero Academia

The first time I saw the anime dubbed I was speechless, I thought an anime like MHA wouldn’t have a good dub. Man was I wrong. Every single character’s voice fit so perfectly. Try finding a better dub, go on, I’ll wait

The Contenders

More like the worst dub.

15 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

I find this dub to be heavily underrated (both 4Kids and TPCI) but it is still rather flawed in a few areas. - HeavyDonkeyKong

No. - Rue

16 Highschool of the Dead Highschool of the Dead

Awesome action, story, comedy and sketchy! Truely amazing. - caspervermeulen

17 Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
18 Ghost Stories

This entire thing was genius. The voice actors behind this truly gave off the comedic tone that they were clearly going for, and it turned around a completely terrible series to being one of the funniest comedies out there. Please, similarly to what the others say, watch the dub of this. It makes the whole series so much more enjoyable. - MasonOcker

Do not watch the Japanese version of this. It's boring, lame, and caused Studio Pierrot to lose a LOT of money. This is why the studio told ADV films (before they went under) to do whatever they wanted dubbing so they could make up the money we lost. So we basically got the only official abridged series to ever exist, and it is hilarious. If you ever want a good laugh, watch the dub of this. - Elric-san

Please, please watch the english dub

19 Black Butler Black Butler Black Butler is a Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and premiered in October, 2008.


I haven't watched this... but on an unrelated note, have any of you thought this was about slavery... y'know... "Black" butler? Just me? Ok... - TrisTris

20 Blood Blockade Battlefront Blood Blockade Battlefront

I love this dub for a few reasons: for one, it takes place in New York, so the characters probably speak English anyway; second, Aaron Dismuke hits it out of the park as Leonardo Watch, turning out even better than the Japanese voice; third, the rest of the cast is absolutely perfect for their respective roles. Someone put this on Toonami!

21 Hetalia: Axis Powers

Them accents. They're so stereotypical, yet so accurate!

22 Hellsing Ultimate Hellsing Ultimate
23 Hetalia

Best anime ever. Funniest dub ever. Seriously.

"My grandmother taught me the importance of the maple leaf and its on her honour I uphold it" ~Canada

"I knew fortune cookie would be bad! " ~China

"Am I catholic or am I protestant? God I don't know" ~England.

t hose are just three of many examples.

24 Yugioh Zexal Yugioh Zexal Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal is a Japanese manga and anime series and the the fourth Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series, as well as the third main spin-off series of the franchise. The manga began serialization in Shueisha's V-Jump magazine from December 2010 and is licensed in North America by Viz Media.

I slip the flow right in while Yugi fans aren't watching.

25 Kill la Kill Kill la Kill Kill la Kill is an anime television series produced by Trigger. In Kill la Kill, Ryuko Matoi transfers to a new high school in order to find her father's murderer.

This show has an EXCELLENT enlish dub.
Both are fantastic, but Id even say the english voice actors did an even better job than the japanese ones. - Lollipopz
