I don't mind either
Though mostly I'll start with Subs
then if I re-watch a series and it has dubs, I'll go with Dub
because I want to see how they stack, and give it a chance
sometimes I will end up enjoying the Dub over the Sub
I'm not one of those "All Dubs suck!!"
there are certain Animes I cannot watch Subs for, mainly DBZ

There are certain animes I prefer in English(ie: DB, DBZ, Mobile Suit Gundam series and Yu Yu Hakusho), however other animes I like MUST be watched with subtitles otherwise they're unwatchable for me. Like Naruto, One Piece, and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. The English voices for those just don't cut it.

i watch all dubbed. no subs lol.

reason: if i try to keep up with the subs, i end up missing the beautiful animation thats going on, so its just wayyy easier for me to watch something period in my own native laguage that i understand fluently. ill admit, some voices are atrocious, like those really squeaky annoying character types. but theres only been a few in the 200 or so ive seen, so its no big deal. thats the great thing about anime, theres always plenty of anime fish (series) in the sea, if one sucks, theres always something else to watch.

And dubbed only if I've seen the subbed...but usually can't stand it. The only dub I could stand is Ouran because I've seen it so much, but i cant remember which I prefer on that one. I mainly just watch it in English so I can fold laundry hehe. I can't imagine DBZ in Japanese.... but I haven't seen it since I was little and don't consider it "good" anime. Iconic yes, but not "good".

Subbed, I've watched a few masterpieces Dubbed and didn't like them, rewatched subbed and loved them.

I tend to go for dubbed if it's an option, if only because it allows me to put some of my attention elsewhere and still keep up with the dialogue

Subbed the majority of time. I can usually read fast enough to understand and if not there's a pause button. If I'm focused on something else though and just watching anime in the background it'll be dubbed. Besides, the original Japanese voicing just has more emotion and believability. Cute moments are a million times cuter in Japanese. Example:
