I used to prefer watching subtitled Animé, but nowadays I don't care either way. Most of the Animé I watch are still subtitled though, both because I originally started out watching the subtitled version of that Animé and am thus more used to the Japanese voices for its characters, and also because the subtitled episodes are far ahead of the dubbed episodes.
I wanna have the choice to watch either, because there are some animes which I vastly prefer dubbed (Monster, Evangelion, most hentais) and there are others that can only be fully enjoyed in their original language/can't find dubbed (Black Jack, Higurashi, most animes dubbed by 4Kids). The anime site I usually use allows you to watch with either subs or dubs, so if I wanna watch either then I'll watch either.

For me it depends on anime and dub companies. Some dub companies can be misleading through pointless edits and dialogue alterations. In general I prefer dubbed versions but exceptions exist.

I'm not 100% certain because it would be nice to not have to read everything. If the English voices were really bad, then I'd prefer subbed, if not then I'd prefer dubbed. If I had to choose between the two, I'd probably prefer an anime being dubbed. D:

Either way, I have you beat. Ryo Horikawa still beats Chris Sabat in sounding out of character with "Vegeta-sama's Cooking Hell": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gFhZJ0SISM
In my opinion I gotta go with sub and ONLY SUB. I will only watch DUB if it ends up on TV (yea TV and computer are 2 diff things) the voices are better than DUB, DUB (like a certain channel every Saturday *idk if im aloud to say it*) edit scenes that are pointless -.- so I gotta go with SUB. DUB would just ruin everything.
I sometimes do both, but I prefer dubs than subs most of the time. Only if I can't stand the English voice actors (I hate Negi Springfield's dubbed voice in Negima), or if there's no dub, will I watch it subbed.
subbed-its more original then cause dubbed there mouths are messed up
Your image was too big. Read the rules before you add anything new to your sig.
And by movie themes I mean the BGMs of the movies. For example, when Ash's Torterra battles Paul's Drapion, the Japanese version plays the music from movie 9 where Ash is trying to fix the sea crown, this and most other cases of using movie music are absent in the dub while they keep stuff like the Sinnoh Elite 4 theme or pretty much any other music that is based on the games and was made for the actual episodes.

This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciated starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig. Started by Dax-360
I honestly don't care either way, as long as they're both well done.
The obvious exception to this is the original version of One Piece compared to the 4Kids version of One Piece. I couldn't stand that dubbed version, and prefer to watch the subbed version on Viz's website.

It actually depends on which one I watch first. If I start with sub, I stay with sub. If I start with dub, I stay with dub. Unless the one I start with has ridiculous sounding characters.
I prefer subbed anime over dubbed. If I'm watching with friends, then I'll watch dubbed, since most of my friends prefer dubs. Usually, though, I won't go out of my way to watch a dub myself unless I'm extremely crazy about the anime in its subbed format or I'm just curious to see what the dubbed voices sound like.
Subbed Original Is Always Better
