English Sub versus English Dub

I don't think avatar is a dub though. Its an English anime. If anything, the dub would be Japanese xP

English subs for anything. Bar the first time I watched childhood series like Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura. I tend to learn towards the dub in that respect but I do enjoy both. :) Although I did watch Yu Yu Hakusho in dub initially also.

Right now, I like Dub more, once I learn japanese better, I will like Sub more. I prefer looking at whats going on, then reading text at the bottom of a screen.

Dubs usually have extremely sloppy voice actors they basically pick up off the street, so I focus on subs to avoid that torture.

Unlike a good chunk of otakus out there,I'm quite fine with both.
I'm more used to japanese dubs,but I'm also fairly familiar with English voice actors.
Sometimes,I'll enjoy the english dub,sometimes the japanese one.

I think my favourite English (Okay.. American..) voice actor is Crispin Freeman. :3

I'm fine with both, but it depends on my mood. I have a lot of respect for the VA's and the Seiyuu who work on our beloved shows. I'll watch the subs when I have the time to read the screen (Granted, there are some anime that I don't even need to read the subs because I've memorized everything) and I'll watch the dubs when I'm multitasking or when I want background noise so I don't need to be paying much attention.

Favorite voice actors, probably either Greg Ayres or ... *Shame* Vic ...
