Pretty catching thread title, no?

I know a lot us watch a variety of anime. Loads of anime. My question to you is, do you stop to appreciate the voices that are your favorite anime characters?

If I am given the option to watch the original, I still prefer the English dubs. For me, English voice actors just have a wider range.

I'd have to say my favorite English ones are;

Male: John Michael Tatum (Kyory from Ouran, Komui from D. Gray-Man, Age from Heroic Age, etc.)

Female: Wendee Lee (Haruhi Suzumiya, Konata from Lucky Star, etc. etc.)

I'm really undecided for Japanese.

I watch Jap with English/French subtitles. The dubs, some of them are ok but most, especially the French dubs are annoying to hear. Anyway I watch even non anime movies, as long as it's foreign, in their origina versions and subtitled.

I haven't watched that much anime to recognise the ones doing the japanese original voiceovers.

It depends on how the voices seem to fit for me. Usually, I'm fine with either. In other cases, I'll prefer English over Japanese, or vice versa. For instance, I think the English voice actor for Excel Excel fits her hyperactive personality.

Well I suppose I enjoy Wendy Lee and Luci Christian the most from the female camp.

I think Steven Blum is fantastic in nearly everything he does.

Anime sucks in any language but japanese. There are only a few exceptions to this rule.
