List Rules Vote for the shows that you believe are the best examples of good anime dubs.

If you're one of those people who only watches anime in Japanese, we don't blame you. English dubs can really ruin a series if they're not good, but for this list we're ranking the best English dubbed anime series of all time. Which English voice actors really got it right? We want you to vote up the anime series with the best English dub, no matter what genre the show is. Many of these top anime should be live action movies. Some good examples of great English dub characters are Vic Mignogna's Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, or Christopher Sabat's Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z. Both actors have received a ton of accolades for their work with their respected characters, including many awards.

We know that everyone has their own preferences, so we're letting you add any of your top English anime dubs to the list if they're not already here. Your pick might get downvoted to oblivion, but hey, maybe other people will love it too!
