SubbingVersusDubbing: the only InternetBackdraft that rivals the ShipToShipCombat.

Some hardcore fans will insist that subbing is the only way to go. [[FanDumb The worst of them]] will mock dub fans for being "illiterate" or "unrefined" and won't seem to accept that people have different opinions.

Every once in a while, however, some game or anime will come along that makes these haters cringe. The dub cast is brilliant. Their voices fit the characters to a T. Maybe the original version had some astonishingly cringe-worthy moments of GratuitousEnglish that the adaptation filters out. Even the fact that the dubbers [[{{Woolseyism}} changed some of the jokes]], and perhaps even a [[PragmaticAdaptation personality or two]], doesn't change the fact that it just shines. Sometimes the dub is just ''good''. This unfortunately does not always stop these {{hate|dom}}rs from bashing everything related to the dub.

The most famous example is the English dub of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', which is just as equally liked as the original Japanese version. Another notable one is the English dub of ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'', which is even stated [[WordOfGod by the creators]] to be the definitive voice cast. And every dub that Creator/{{Disney}} has done for Creator/StudioGhibli is approved by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki himself. Of course, even with these dubs, your opinion may always vary, thus examples are to be signed and state your personal opinion.

The ultimate contrast of {{Macekre}}. Compare {{Woolseyism}}, which those dubs may sometimes contain. See also CreatorPreferredAdaptation.

* Just because a series is listed here does not necessarily mean the the dub is ''superior'' to the original, just that it is very good in its own right.
* Some people talk about "the dub" when they are referring to the English dubs. ''Please, avoid that.''
* ''Try to include links to examples. They make this list a lot better.''
* While we do have a section for "Tropers", please try to list the dubs under their language with no troper name whatsoever. That makes this section a lot tidier and easier to read.

!Generally Well-Dubbed Works
!!!There are many shows/anime/movies that have a superior dub in many languages.
!!!The reason usually is that the product in question was expected to be a hit, so it makes sense hiring expensive translators and great voice actors for something that will sell a lot. It also helps when the producer company and/or the publisher have its own localization department.
!!!Note: Don't write anything about a particular dub of a movie/series here. Use the languages below instead.
