Absolutely. I've never liked an English version of a theme song originally done in Japanese (definitely not over the Japanese version). Well, there is the rare occurence when the Japanese singer themselves did it in English, but then liking it depends on their accent when singing in English (ie Engrish).

I don`t know why people like the dubs, it`s so bad it`s nearly scary.
I MUST have the orginal, otherwise I usully don`t listen to it.

I also prefer the original japanese versions. Mainly because it was meant to be sung in that language and not some other language. I mean if they wanted that, they could just feature foreign artists to do the themes (i.e. Texhnolyze OP, which is Guardian Angel from Juno Reactor).
And dubbed theme songs usually also have different music which kinda ruins the atmosphere of the original one.

I would have to agree. The original Japanese versions are almost always better then the English dub versions. I don't know what it is but the dub versions always sound so cheesy.

I like japanese versions. But it`s good to hear the version in your language and fun too. For example, some inuyasha songs are very cool in english and spanish. And slayers in spanish is cool too. The only thing i don´t like is the change of sense in the lyrics and problems singing.

well, not always, for example: DB and all the sagas has dubb songs, and i like them very much, more than the original; there's also the songs of Digimon (the 3 sagas i saw) i enjoy the themes in dubb.

but i dont know, becuz if i hear the song first in dubb than the original i probably enjoy the dubb instead of the original, its relative...

cuidense!:D

There are very, VERY few dubs that actually sound enough decent for me to stand watching and listening to it, but again...they are so little...

In english I have found none, but in spanish (latin america) the only ones were the dubs for Slayers OP, and Shaman King, that's it.

Another vote for the originals!

However, they dubbed some anime soundtracks into Indonesian version here. Some of them are not bad, though.
Some others? Terrible!
I agree. It'll be better if the soundtrack sung in its original version. It'll fit better in ears too.

come on this is a one sided question, its always the original that is better. I really hate it when they dub it, most of the time (if not always) it sucks.

Original! ^^. I cant take the dubbed versions >_<. Sometimes dubbed is good, but thats pretty rare. But mostly I have to hear the original.

But if its DVD, its nice to have original and dubbed, just like Boko said. You can always laugh when they are talking XD

O! I love the original the most! It's way better because without the original there wouldn't be a dubbed now would there.

Yup I definitely agree with you that dubbed absolutely sucks! They sound so unoriginal and 'yuck'! So definitely original ;)

Because we are we and nobody else. For who we are we live for it.

I prefer the Original. Everytime they dub a english, it sounds either gay or just random.

so far, I like the origina better, but I believe in giving the english dubs a chance. Hey, after all, they're pratically the same songs sung by different people using a different language, the basic structure of the music is the same. Who can say if you'll like the voice of the dubber better than the original?

I've never liked dubs. Original is the best. Unless of course the dubs are done nicely although I've never come across any that are nice.
