Isn't the same dude, what's his name (David Blum?) or something around that context in three of this shows. Well, damn, he's good and has way to many aliases. Anyway, keeping this one short and went with Cowboy Bebop and Hellsing. Love Integra's accent and Alucard's booming voice.

Nine XXVI's Picks: Cowboy Bebop, Hellsing

what's his name (David Blum?)

Yeah it's Steve Blum but is also know as David Lucas, Andrew Watton, and like 50 more aliases. As far as best dub, easy Bebop and Big O. I've always been a huge of Animaze/ZRO limit and their kid brother Bang Zoom! Hellsing was pretty solid work from NewGen. Fullmetal is good well....except Vic(meet him at anime weekend atlanta, great guy, just not his best role) as Ed, but Dameon Clark, and other make up for that.

I voted Big O and Hellsing.
Big O's english cast is quite good, by most standards.
Although, admittedly, I have only heard snippets of the japanese cast.

Hellsing's vocal cast was interesting.
Although the British accents were a bit much at times.
And also, there was no explanation for why Alucard lacked one.

However, I do think the Japanese version had more feeling.
Why did I vote for that one again?
I've been reading Bob and George too long....
