List RulesVote up the terrible dubs that at least came with some laughs.

Some anime dubs are classics, with love and care put into every casting choice and line of dialogue. The best dubbed anime of all time are so well made, even massive fans of subs have to admit their merit. 

Then there are the terrible anime dubs. The ones that butcher every single original piece of dialogue. The ones filled with actors that wouldn’t be able to get jobs in regional theaters. These are the anime dubs that are so bad they're funny. How did they come to exist? Who actually gave money to these? Who listened to the least successful anime dubs of all time and thought, "Yep, that's totally okay!"

These are the anime dubs that are way worse than the originals. They took gold and turned it into hot garbage, though a kind of trash alchemy. That doesn't mean they aren't hilarious (as long as you're willing to go in with the right mindset). The worst anime dubs of all time are actually a ton of fun. Just make sure you don't mind your original favorites being messed with. 

Get ready for the bad line reads. The horrible and garbled translations. The baffling video edits. The questionable music. These are the anime dubs you’ll want to watch with a group of friends, so you can all riff on just how horrifically hilarious they are.
