Sub Or Dub?

This club is NOT, I repeat, NOT to argue whether subs or dubs are, in general, better. This club is to argue, on a case-by-case basis, the language tracks for individual series, as to be argued by people who watch and enjoy series in both languages. I absolutely do not want to hear the bashing of dubs (in general), at all, ever. But as with everything, there are both good dubs and bad dubs. What this club is for is to determine whether or not a series is better in either language.
To apply for this club, you may need to send a message to any of the club's admins as well as making a request to join the club, if there are no other signs of you being a dub fan. Your message must include a few of your favourite dubs as well as your reasoning behind dubs being a good thing. I'm not asking for essay quality, just enough to confirm that you're not a dub hater.
When commenting on which version someone should watch, please try and compare the two performances. If you have only seen one language track, please state so.

@Confucius: I've seen Noein'ss dub... sadly it's pretty clear that not a single actor in it is giving their A-game. It's a fairly standard dub.

That said, it's not a bad dub, and it's worth watching just for the amazing blooper reel alone.

@Koreye: I agree, though I'd recommend switching to the JP track for the baseball episode.

Samurai champloo...I keep telling people that watching it subbed is a bad idea unless youre japanese or know the language and culture. I've recommended it to some people along with cowboy bebop, and i noticed that people who saw both in Japanese tended not to like it as much as people who saw both the shows in english dub. My own personal experience with the anime has convinced me that one of the main strengths of the show is the English VA, the dialogues, and the expressions, which you're bound to miss if you're watching it subbed
