All Lupin III Dubs
I think the best dub I heard of Lupin the Third was back in the day, when Manga Entertainment released the movie Mystery of Mamo. I saw that when I was a young fellow, and I've never heard a Lupin dub better. Whenever I watch Lupin III in English now, I compare the voices to those. I think it was the same cast when Manga released that movie about the diamond inside the Statue of Liberty… "Goodbye Lady Liberty" I think it was called.
Put it this way, the whole gang had perfect voices that really suited the characters, and the best, Inspector Zenigata… I still remember the dude who did his voice to this day, he was called Sean Barret, and he also did Captain Britain in Dominion Tank Police for Manga Entertainment, too.
I think he's the best ever Zenigata I've heard, in English. He referred to Lupin as Wolf, and said, "Yer' goin' to Jail, Wolf! Ya' lousy bastard!" like nobody else.
When I saw the release of Castle of Cagliostro, I thought the dubbing was terrible inferior, even to something that was done way back when not a lot of people knew what animÃ was in the West, virtually.
Cowboy Bebop. - Not bad, all around. A good performance by all.
Outlaw Star. - Again, this was a nice show to watch in English, too.
Blue Water's Dub of Dragonball. Although rather amateur, it kept a lot of the original material. Almost all of it, infact. Even "Demon King Piccolo."
One Piece. - Because you're such an ignoramus, Zolo.
Yu-Gi-Oh! King of Games. - BECAUSE HE SHOUTS EVERYTHING LIKE THIS.
Dragonball Z. - Just a lot of the edits, basically. "Wow, I can see their parachutes!" - "This building would have been full on Sunday!" - "Everyone managed to evacuate safely!" - Etc, etc.
