** Sentai's dub of ''MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun.'' With the exception of veteran Creator/MonicaRial all the main leads are fairly new to or don't have much credits in the anime dubbing scene, and yet all their performances of their respective characters were subperb. Ty Mahany as Nozaki finds the perfect balance between his noramlly stoic behavior and dorky moments instead of just straight out going monotone. Julie Simmons as Chiyo was absolutely adorable, but she adds a bit of sass to the character which adds more to Chiyo apart from always being the nice one. Creator/ScottGibbs is absolutely hilarious as Mikoshiba and is at his best whenever the poor boy embarasses himself. Creator/MonicaRial is unexpectedly the cool and deep-voiced Kashima, but it's a befitting performance and it's always a delight to hear Monica do her more sultry pitch. Cameron Bautsch may sound a bit shaky at first as Wakamatsu, but there's an Adorakable and childish nature to his voice that just works for the character. But by far the best perfomances comes from Joanne Bonasso as Seo and Adam Noble as Hori. Bonasso had a roughness to her voice that empahsized Seo's rather olbvious and blunt nature, and Noble always hit just the right tone whenever Hori switched from relaxed to annoyed to just flat out angry. The script is also well written and faithful, taking a few liberties here and there whenever a joke doesn't translate well. Overall, it's a dub worth watching and one of Sentai's best efforts.

*''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' has very well received dub. Creator/CrispinFreeman manages to outdo Creator/TomokazuSugita on Kyon's voice, Creator/MichelleRuff captures both Yuki's quiet emotionless tone, AND her shy Disappearance counterpart perfectly, Creator/JohnnyYongBosch sounds almost exactly like Creator/DaisukeOno as Koizumi, and the rest of the cast overall does a great job on the characters, so much so, that when Creator/FUNimation got the rights to [[Manga/TheVanishingOfNagatoYukiChan The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan]], fans were especially worried that they would get recast. [[Main/RoleReprisal Luckily, they brought the old cast back.]]

* ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' is an unusual case: when the game was originally released in Japan, it featured English voice acting with Japanese subtitles instead of the usual Japanese voice acting. The voice acting was quite good, though, with Creator/RobinAtkinDownes as the {{Otaku}} BloodKnight Travis Touchdown (pulling off an amazingly convincing FakeAmerican accent, at that). The trend continued with ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', and the voice acting was still amazing. Then the original ''NMH'' was given an UpdatedRerelease on the PS3 which included Japanese voice acting, and in a strange turn of events, players preferred the English voice work to Japanese. Is it a case of players being too accustomed to the English VA work, or was it just plain better than the Japanese VA work? Whatever the answer, the fact remains that the English voice work is quality stuff.

*** The Eva dub, recorded fairly early in ADV's lifespan (1997 to be precise), is probably [[LoveItOrHateIt the most polarizing dub they ever did. In fact it's probably the most polarizing dub ANYONE ever did. For every fan who praises it, there's probably an equal number who despise it]].

The consensus seems to be that the dub does indeed have some strong performances, but this is "balanced out" by several moments having turned to downright {{Narm}} in the transition.

* While it is an unofficial GagDub, the voice acting in Creator/TeamFourStar's ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' is of good enough quality that many fans prefer it over the official dubs of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Creator/MasakoX's Goku strikes an excellent middle ground between Creator/MasakoNozawa's childish and naive portrayal and Creator/SeanSchemmel's heroic portrayal of Goku. Creator/{{Lanipator}} does a spot-on impression of Creator/ChrisSabat's Piccolo and Vegeta, yet brings more range to both characters. Creator/LittleKuriboh brings a polite, yet sadistic air to Freeza that predates Creator/ChrisAyres' portrayal of the tyrant. Creator/KaiserNeko's Future Trunks takes the gruff voice of the original dub and brings a much wider emotional range to the character. Lastly, Creator/Takahata101's version of Imperfect Cell is as rough and terrifying as his Perfect Cell is smooth and regal. Even the lesser characters are dubbed well, with each being distinct, despite many of them being played by one of the above-mentioned actors. Their quality is such that several of the voice actors from the official dubs of DBZ have expressed approval, and some have even made cameos in the DBZA.

* ''VideoGame/{{Elsword}}'' is one of those rare moments where a KOrean MMORPG have select character voices that doesn't sound like they hired random people from the streets. Instead, they hired the voice actors that are actually from Creator/VizMedia's talents along with a great ADR director Creator/MichaelSorich. There is an actual option in game to switch languages from Korean to English, and the majority of the people don't actually mind playing with the English Voice Overs.
