Thx god in the '90s the anime dubbing was made in Mexico for us the LA spanish speakers, so i was really good, i really liked Dragonball and DBZ dubbing by far better than the english one, i think this one is pretty mediocre (the exaggerated modulation of some VA just worsens it) , spain spanish's also pretty good, Slam Dunk has one of the better interpretations of sakuraghi i have heard, GS Mikami, Yu Yu Hakusho are the ones that i liked the most.

Awfully the last dubbings have been made mostly on Venezuela and seriously talking they suck ass badly... awkward voices, weird accents, just annoying

Same here. The same applies in the reverse order as well (from Japanese to English).

Good voice acting: Cowboy Bebop (the best dub jobs IMO), Last Exile, FMA, FLCL, Inuyasha (only on this list because it's good when compared to the Japanese dubs), Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Spirited Away.

I thought the Naruto dubs weren't half bad. The only thing that really ruins it is Naruto's voice, which like most American voice actors for pre-teen/teenage characters is some 40 year old lady. Not to mention the infamous translation of "dattebayo" to "Believe it!" But honestly, the absolute worst dubs/english anime adaptation ever is One Piece. I mean, it was so bad that 4Kids had to stop doing the dubs.

There are many with pretty decent dubs, but there are very few that I actually prefer the English dub over the original Japanese.

The only ones I can think of for that are:
-Cowboy Bebop
-Desert Punk
-Ghost in the Shell Stand: Alone Complex
-Hellsing

GOLDEN BOY!

The dubbed is MUCH better than the subtitled simply because of how ridiculous Kintaro sounds in the dubbed. It's so corny it's good.

DBZ - I'm just to used to the English VA and Goku sounds like a woman in the subs, also Chris Sabat just kicks ass as Vegeta.

FMA - Best dub on the planet. Maybe b/c they actually took time and care into choosing VA's.

Hellsing - Just b/c in English they're actually able to have proper accents.

Cowboy Bebop - Steve Blum is Spike 'nuff said.

Samurai Champloo

Death Note - Here come the flames. But I think L's dub was on par if not better than the original. I also think Brad Swaille does a great job switching from "evil" Light to "good" Light; whereas in the subs, while they were still brilliant, he kinda just sounded the same 70% of the time.

Eureka Seven - The sub seiyu are just awful, period. Renton sounds like an old woman, Eureka sounds like she's in her 20's, and everyone else's voices are just annoying especially Holland's.

Ghost in the Shell: SAC - The voices fit like a glove.

FLCL - Basically a copy and paste of the original Japanese put into English; nothing more nothing less.

Death Note
E's otherwise
Naruto
Full Metal Alchemist
Pokemon ~ purely because I feel nostalgic today.

A lot of anime I watch in Japanese with subs though because half the time the dubs are just awful. Sometimes certain characters are alright but a few characters are too bad to watch and I stopped watching Naruto dubs becuase 'Believe it!' was getting on my nerves big time. Also I'm moving more towards manga now, the only anime I watch religiously are Code Geass and Vampire Knight.
