I actually can't bear to watch the English dubs of any anime at all...with the exception of the Myazaki films, where they get some really professional talent to do it. I think it just takes away from the experience, even if I have to sit there and read the whole time.

half the time i enjoy sitting there and reading everything, i'm working my way through the first 42 episodes of flame of recca right now, it's pretty good if you like lots of fight scenes and some blood sprinkled with a couple inuendos here and there...i've seen better drawing but i generally watch anime for the storyline and to hear the japanese...

I tend to try and stick with the original language, but about halfway through Ghost in the Shell: SAC I switched to English. It's a great dub, well acted and very close to the subtitles and it does allow one to concentrate on action and visuals more. Interestingly enough the Myazaki are the ones where i stay far far away from the Disney dubs. I think they go more for name voice talent than, well, talent. Although they do come off better than some things like Titan A.E. On that one I actually switch to French and watch subtitles *lol*

(BTW that's a great trick for dumb action films. Watch Face/Off in French sometime- much better!! :D :D)

I saw the first couple episodes of fumofu (Full Metal Panic, second series) and His and Her Circumstances - both pretty funny, and hopefully I'll be watching more (It all belongs to a guy on my floor. But I lent him Inconsolable Secret, so he owes me one.) :)

I heard Full Metal Alchemist was depressing. So I think I'd probably like it. ;) I intend to watch it eventually...

I heart Bebop. The soundtracks rule.
Sorry I'm repeating myself.
Again.
Who do you think I'll be without you?
