Personally, I like dubs. In fact, the majority of my anime collection is dubbed in English. I don't understand why dubs are so hated among the "purists". I mean, if dubs help spread anime's popularity (very few casual watchers will sit through 100+ episodes of YYH subtitled on tv.) then why are they so reviled? In the early days of anime in the US, when Streamline Pictures reigned supreme, all dubs were pretty awful. Just look at Lily C.A.T or Project A-Ko. But dub quality has greatly improved over the years. To me, the Cowboy Bebop English cast is better than the original Japanese. But my favorite dubs are by ADV. The Evaneglion dub is my favorite of all time, and words cannot express how happy I am that Manga got the cast back for the Movie release.
