I usually really dislike English dubs, so I'm looking for some that are on the better end of the spectrum.

Clannad's dub is quite good... Not even close as good as the original, but not bad.

Most of the stuff done from the late 1990's thru 2006 or so. Especially if it was done by ADV.

Speaking of ADV, try Ghost Stories. The dub makes the show.

-- Season one of Black Lagoon was one of ADV's last. Sigh.

--Gods, yes!

They also did the first season of Saiyuki and Saiyuki: Requiem before someone took it over and butchered it. If English is your primary language, I recommend the dub. They interplay between the characters is brilliant and they nailed the humor.

Gundam Seed / Gundam Seed Destiny and Dragonball Z were my all time favorite English dubbed Animes! :D

Fullmetal Alchemist also had some pretty good English dubs. :)

I'll third this, I loved ADV's dubs! My favorite is quite possibly Cromartie High School though!

Yeah most recent dubs suck. They try to hard. A good one I came across is Vandread, funny how a supposedly ecchi anime isn't filled with squeaky dubs

Sadist-chama has good taste.

Gundam 00 had decent dubbing, memorable. But for good reason. Also, Samurai Champloo was quite good.

Trigun, Cowboy Bebop and The Big O have nice English dubs.
Numbuh 3, you've got to get off the couch, you cannot sit in that tree house, girl you like Rainbow Monkeys so grab your little shit and then swing!

Hand tracks be tracking me to different doorways. In a maze, and I don't know what to do. Guaranteed though, Ima find the emeralds.

Please no. It was terrible listening to.

Uhhm, the reason I think most people don't really like Dubs is that they view their mouths instead of actually reading the subs. I do agree that they're no where near is good as subs though. No emotion usually.

School Rumble, YuYuHakusho.

and Tokyo Bubblegum Crisis. Look it up on Funimation ;)

Good Dubs in my opinion:
The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Lucky Star (has it's bad moments but the voice of Konata did an amazing job)
Jigoku Shoujo

Great dubs in my opinion (a lot of stuff from FUNimation. They do a great job but they're a bit repetitive in their casting)
Soul Eater
Ouran High School Host Club
Fullmetal Alchemist
Spice and Wolf
Anything Studio Ghibli (except Panyo)
xxxHolic
Death Note
Higurashi no Eden
Mushishi
Code Geass

Edit: Higashi no Eden. Sorry, stupid fingers can't type today.
