I'm a big dub fan, but I cringed at the Animax dub of "Kaitou Joker."

They somehow made Joker sound like a middle-aged man. That was a really poor casting choice.

Obligatory Tsui no Sora and Garzey's Wing reply.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

Clannad dub stands out as one of the worst dubs I have seen. I wish I was more open to watching subs when I started watching anime. Instead of pushing myself through awful dubs while feeling appalled😞

alot of the korean rip-off's were bad, they were all dubbed in the late 80's in Hong Kong.

diatron 5 is probably the worst ive seen.

Every Yu-Gi-Oh season post 5d's (the ones before were pretty shit but the ones after are just pure garbage)
Clannad's dub was disgusting (neh-gisa)
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal has by far the worst dub I have seen (but to be fair I try to avoid dubs)

I'd say most bad English dubbed anime are on the same level of bad. Some are slightly better, some are slightly worse. Most bad dubs I've seen consistently have one or several of 3 main problems, which are 1, overacting or underacting, 2, the voices are unpleasant to listen to, 3, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND A THING THEY ARE SAYING!!!

I remember that one of the minor female characters sounds like an old lady despite the character being in high school.
Also, I had the same situation of watching most anime dubbed during my rookie years as an anime watcher.

The first Sailor Moon's (of the 90s) English dub by Dic was dreadful.

I also deeply dislike the English dub for Digimon Adventure that killed the spirit of the show in many parts and changed some dialogues in very dramatic moments for terrible and lame jokes.

Most post 2010 dubs are fantastic. Which is why I was disappointed at the terrible voice acting in Devils Line. And to think it came from Sentai, the same company that gave me one of the most memorable dubs I've come across - Tiger and Bunny

*sigh*

This is a contender. :D

(This is from the Malaysian English dub of Dragon Ball Z movie 7. The FUNimation English dub is pretty good, as many know.)

psh I liked that dub and even preferred some Higurashi scenes dubbed. (For example, the Shion vs Satoko scene was a lot more emotional for me dubbed, though the original has better screaming, crying, and laughing.) I've seen far worse dubs.

As a dub fan, I've gotta admit some shit is bad.

Bible Black
Digimon Adventure
Garzey's Wing
Sextra Credit
Sins of the Sisters

In fact, if the box art on a hentai promotes the fact that they got American porn stars to be VAs (which was a trend in the early 2000s for some reason), it's bad.

I think the worst dub I've seen is the japanese dub of steins;gate. The 20 seconds of the Kaichou wa Maid-sama english dub I've seen are also pretty bad.

The anime I've seen that has the worst English dub (Imo and at the time this is posted of course) is Panzer Dragoon. The English voice acting is just so awful, everytime the show tries to be serious I can't take it seriously because of the bad English voice acting. Granted the Panzer Dragoon OVA isn't good to begin with but so far it's the Anime that has the worst English dub I've heard.

I don’t entirely blame DBZ, but the original version of Android 18’s voice didn’t sound right to me.

This was before Super and GT.

Most streaming services have a language audio selection that toggles between original JP and your local region if applicable.

Sextra Credit's dub was fucking hilarious though, they made a fucked up hentai pretty damn amusing ngl.
Bible Black and Garzey's Wing's dubs were one of those that were "so bad it's funny".
Also that thing about American porn stars as VAs is so wtf, didn't even know that was a thing lmao.

Yeah. As you said - acceptable (doesn't equal to superior like many delusional dublovers think).

I guess it depends on what you're grading the dub on..

For worst voice accent, I'd give that award to Abenobashi Mahou☆Shoutengai (Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi).. American Hillbilly accents just sound so wrong for anime.

For worst translation accuracy, I'd give that award to Gakkou no Kaidan (Ghost Stories).. the only things they didn't change were the ghost's names and the methods used to get rid of them.

You'll have to be more specific about what you mean by "Worst English Dub".
You're never too old to watch anime.
If I ever stop watching anime, check my pulse I'm likely dead.

I wake up with coffee & anime, I go to sleep with coffee & anime.

Sorry if my sarcasm is bad, it's not my first language.

Animax's dub for Hayate the Combat Butler S3 and above was the worst I've heard. Hinagiku and Ayumu's voice in particular sounded really forced and cringy, they tried too hard to squeeze out the voice of a cute little girl but failed horribly at it.

Obviously Funimation dub DBZ and DBGT is the worst English dub ever to be exists (I know this may causes a lot of Funimation fans come at me but still...), not only the acting is bad and some name changes but also changed the entire story scripts and music into something that's belongs to DC/Marvel cartoons for no goddamn reason. (At least I have some fun with Speedy and Big Green dub for it's laughable performance and poorly translated scripts lol)

Mahou Sensei Negima's dub. Negi's voice in English dub sounds so fucking bad, and they also censor some lines, for example in the Japanese dub, Asuna refers the class president as a "shotacon" (the subtitles in the English sub translates this as "paedophile"), but the English dub changes it to "Goldilocks". Like wtf.
