Even if the English VA is incredibly bad (ex. older DW titles) I still like to listen to it in English (and with subtitles).

You guys?

Japanese with English subs.

I prefer the melodramatic way the japanese deliver their voice overs compared to others. I won't complain if its only english tho.

In any case I like to listen to whatever the original language is.


I've heard some great dubs though.

Subtitled.

Good dubs are few and far between. They often come across as exaggerated, bordering on caricature, without a speck of subtlety or evoking an appropriate emotion.

That said - Anime dubs are FAR worse than video game dubs.

If the dub is good (which is unfortunately pretty rare) then dubbing is my preference. But given the history of most English dubs, subtitles are better.

Bad dubbing is part of the genre to me.
