75 Best Dubbed Anime of All Time Ranked

  • by

This ranking was created by considering the fan votes and reviews, which helped us determine which dubbed anime deserve to be on the list. Check it out and see if there’s anything you could add to your watchlist!

75. Tsubasa Chronicle (2005)

It’s difficult for anime to get any more epic than Tsubasa Chronicle. Spanning dozens of episodes and even multiple movies, this is a franchise that perhaps should have been confined to just one series. Regardless, the adventures of Syaoran, Sakura, and friends are always fun to watch, thanks to its unique mixture of fantasy storytelling mixed with sci-fi themes. 

The English dub might not be too accurate when adapting things from Japanese culture or even naming characters, but it’s still easy on the ears compared to other shows out there. It’s also worth watching the dub of the two OVAs screened in North America before the TV series was released.

74. Spice and Wolf II (2010)

The second spin-off from Spice and Wolf II has a lot more to offer than just more of Holo’s adventures with Lawrence. A new character, Catherine, is introduced this time around who helps spice up things between our two leads while they continue their journey across the countryside. 

This makes for plenty of entertaining moments, as well as some rather laid-back ones that focus on dialogue rather than action or adventure. And thanks to some excellent writing, both versions are very appealing in their ways.

73. Haganai I don’t have many friends (2010)

One of the best comedy series in recent years, this wacky school story is about students with various problems which interfere with their ability to fit in. The dub features standout performances from Luci Christian and Jad Saxton, who play Sena and Yozora. Add in some catchy tunes, and you’ve got an anime that’s hard not to like regardless of whether you prefer watching it in English or Japanese.

72. Fairy Tail (2009)

This longtime fan favorite has been going strong for a long time, and there’s no sign of it slowing down anytime soon. Fairy Tail is an entertaining series that mixes action, comedy, and drama to make for some very memorable moments. It also has one of the best English dubs you’ll find out there, thanks in part to its adult cast who give their roles their all. 

And while the show does take some time before really getting started, once it does, fans will be glued to their seats until they finish this fantastic franchise.

71. Welcome to the NHK (2006)

There is plenty of depressing anime, but few can match the vibe found in Welcome to the NHK. This dark tale about how you never know what goes on in someone else’s life is tragic and realistic about how these kinds of people suffer. 

And while many anime shows try to emulate the more humorous side of things with their dubs, these offers something different that helps set it apart from other anime out there.

70. Funimation’s 5th Anniversary Party (2008)

While most conventions celebrate anime and fandom culture, they usually don’t have anything worth watching until the actual panels start. Luckily for us, fans weren’t left hanging thanks to this bonus feature found on one of Funimation’s releases (and it’s not like there are any other options besides buying the Japanese DVDs or importing them from elsewhere). 

The dub cast gets together to reprise their roles for a fantastic skit that’s one of the funniest things you’ll ever see.

69. Highschool DxD (2012) 

While this show has plenty of fanservice, it also manages to balance things out nicely with its entertaining story elements, fun characters, and exciting moments. However, the English dub takes all these good parts and makes them even better, thanks to some great acting that brings humor and drama. 

Add in some catchy tunes, and you have yourself one very enjoyable dub that shouldn’t be missed by anyone who wants a great anime to watch.

68. Danganronpa The animation (2013)

Although the concept of a school killing game might not sound appealing, it makes for highly entertaining viewing. This show does a great job of balancing its darker moments with plenty of humor and character interactions. The dub is also pretty strong due to Bryce Papenbrook ‘s performance as Makoto, which he manages to make feel both humorous and dramatic when those moments come up. 

Add in some top-notch music, and you have an anime that’s impossible not to love regardless of whether you prefer watching it dubbed or subbed.

67. Black Butler (2008)

For the past four years, this has been one of Funimation’s most consistent best-selling series and for a good reason. The great mix of comedy and darkness makes for a compelling show that’s hard to stop watching once you’ve started since many episodes end on cliffhangers which leave you wanting more. 

And while the dub is strong across the board for both its primary and supporting cast, it’s Travis Willingham who steals the show as Sebastian with his ability to sound terrifying at times yet suave during others.

66. Kakegurui (2017)

Although this show’s first episode is a bit misleading compared to the rest of the series, it’s still an entertaining watch from start to finish. The story offers exciting characters and an increased focus on the main character, which goes a long way in increasing how invested you are in everything around them. 

And while many might be turned off by its “painful” title, this series is worth checking out due to some spectacular voice work and a fantastic dub.

65. Durarara!!X2 (2015) 

While most people might be familiar with the original Tokyo version of this show, they’ve been missing out on what its successor has to offer. The characters mostly remain the same in terms of their personalities, but there is an increased focus on Izaya, making him more entertaining than ever before. Plus, the English dub brings out all these aspects even further thanks to performances that bring a lot of energy into each scene.

64. One-Punch Man (2015)

Although the One-Punch Man manga has been around for a long time, it wasn’t until Madhouse got its hands on it that it was finally adapted into an anime. What resulted is a hilarious and exciting show, with each fight scene more memorable than the last, thanks to some awesome directing and a strong script that made sure not to take away from how awesome our hero can be at times. 

And even though many things have come since its initial release, this remains one of Funimation’s best dubs to date.

63. Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)

Many people might’ve ended up watching this one subbed since it’s available on Netflix, but do yourself a favor and check out its English dub instead. Not only is the script better than many give credit for, but the voice work is also fantastic, thanks primarily to Aaron Dismuke’s ability to make Edward sound like an actual kid. 

But if you want to see what this series has to offer in terms of visuals, you definitely should watch the 2009 remake instead, as it’s full of epic fight scenes that will leave you wanting more after each episode.

62. Parasyte (2014)

For those who are looking for something truly terrifying, then Parasy might be right up your alley. This show is far from lighthearted when it comes to its dark themes about monsters taking over people’s bodies, but there’s a lot of fun to be had in how the script plays with these different ideas. 

And while this series may have a few issues here and there in its plot, it doesn’t stop it from being a great time overall, thanks to some good voice work that only adds on to everything happening on-screen.

61. Ninja Slayer from Animation (2015)

In recent years, we’ve seen more and more anime with English dubs done by Sentai Filmworks, and for a good reason, they continue to turn out excellent results, making them one of the best anime dubbing studios around. 

And while their 2015 release, Ninja Slayer, might have a few issues with its original material being so short, this did nothing to stop it from being an incredible ride thanks to some fun voice work all around—with a special note going towards Bryce Papenbrook ‘s performance as the titular character.

60. Fairy Tail (2009)

While it’s already been mentioned in one of my previous articles, Fairy Tail is another anime that nails everything that makes a good English dub. From the talents of its voice cast to how well they were able to stay true to the Japanese script and add something extra into each line, this show is one of the most fun anime to watch, dubbed thanks to its bright tone and memorable characters.

59. One Piece (1999)

While not as great as it used to be, One Piece remains one of the more popular animes in long-form animation today, which makes sense when considering how well this series manages to blend so many different genres. And even though the visuals may have taken a hit throughout Eiichiro Oda’s long journey with his Straw Hat Pirates, there’s no denying that the English dub is easily one of FUNimation’s best performances overall.

58. Tokyo Ghoul (2014)

While Tokyo Ghoul does have its issues with pacing, there’s no denying that this show nails the dark side of humanity in how each character is forced to come to terms with what it takes to survive indeed. And while I can’t say that I’ve seen all of Tokyo Ghoul’s dubs so far, the entries I have heard are some of FUNimation’s best works in recent memory, which can be attributed to their fantastic script and overall talented cast.

57. Death Parade (2015)

If you’re looking for a more serious take on death amongst humans, then Death Parade might be right up your alley. A show that can go from being a psychological thriller one moment to a simple slice-of-life anime the next, this series is a surprise in how different it can be at times—and yet, it still has a solid emotional core to follow throughout the entire thing as well. 

And with Funimation having handled its English dub, you know it’s going to be worth your time from start to finish.

56. Steins; Gate (2011)

While some people might find some of the pacing issues present in Steins; Gate annoying, I found those parts helped build up the rest of what made this show such an exciting watch overall. And whether it’s seeing real-life consequences of time travel or seeing the main cast struggle with their newfound abilities, this series hits all the right notes when it comes to how they can do science fiction in an anime. 

And with its English dub being handled by well-known actors such as Aaron Dismuke and Trina Nishimura, you know that Steins; Gate is a series you won’t want to miss out on in any language.

55. Soul Eater (2008)

For those of you that don’t know, Soul Eater is the kind of show where the more wackiness you can handle, the more you’ll enjoy it overall. A series where each episode comes packing its own set of jokes, this one is a great anime to watch dubbed if you want something that’s going to keep your eyes glued to the screen without being too serious—and as long as you can handle some of its more brutal scenes, I think people will have a fun time with this one for sure.

54. Black Butler (2008)

If you’re looking for a series that knows how to play around with its characters and yet still manages to have some painful moments from time to time, then you’ve come to the right place with Black Butler. A show that’s packed with great performances and even better writing, this is one of the more underrated series that FUNimation has brought over to the West, and I can’t help but wonder why they haven’t done more with this property.

53. Bleach (2004), directed by Noriyuki Abe

Even though Bleach does have its fair share of filler, there’s no denying that the main story arcs in this series are still worth taking. And with its English dub being handled by well-known actors such as Johnny Yong Bosch, you can’t go wrong with giving Bleach a watch in any language.

52. One Piece (1999)

While I can understand why some people might not like the way Luffy and certain other characters sound in One Piece’s English dub (with characters like Sanji having different voice actors at times), I feel like the level of passion that everyone brings into their respective performances makes this series stand out as one of FUNimation’s best dubs to date. And even if you don’t like the main character, it’s hard not to get behind an anime that has one of the biggest ensemble casts in all of anime.

51. Black Lagoon (2006)

While some people might find certain aspects at play in this series ridiculous, I feel like Black Lagoon’s exciting take on the criminal underworld makes it stand out as one of the best action-heavy series FUNimation has brought over to the West. And with its English dub being handled by well-known actors such as Johnny Yong Bosch, you can’t go wrong with giving Black Lagoon a watch in any language.

50. Hellsing Ultimate (2006-2014)

As one of the bloodiest and goriest series I’ve ever seen, Hellsing Ultimate is an action-heavy series that has a lot to offer those who are willing to dive into its world. And with its English dub being handled by Brina Palencia, Preston Plow, and Tristan MacAvery (not to mention Crispin Freeman and Ian Sinclair ), you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

49. Yu Hakusho (1992-1995)

If you’re looking for an anime that’s full of action and yet manages to do well when it comes to character development, then you’ve come to the right place with Yu Hakusho. A series that shows us what kind of power an underdog protagonist can have when a solid cast backs him up, there are few friends as loyal as Yusuke and if you need proof of that, look no further than this anime adaptation.

48. Wolf’s Rain (2003)

With its unique visual style, an exciting take on the whole “lone wolf” archetype, and a story full of tragedy, Wolf’s Rain is one series that sets itself apart from most other anime in the action/adventure genre. And with its English dub being handled by well-known actors such as Steve Blum, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language (although I do recommend watching the subtitled version, if possible since it’s worth experiencing).

47. Parasyte The Maxim (2014)

While some people might find the idea of body horror and murder a bit unsettling, I feel like Parasyte -the maxim- ‘s take on the whole “alien invasion” trope makes it stand out as one of the unique series FUNimation has brought over to the West. And with its English dub being handled by well-known actors such as J. Michael Tatum, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

46. Claymore (2007)

With its unique take on the whole “monster-fighting” genre, exciting characters, great music, and an engaging story arc, Claymore is one series that anime fans should not pass. And with its English dub being handled by well-known actresses such as Christine Auten, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

45. Space Dandy (2014)

This sci-fi comedy series about a jack-of-all-trades and his alien companions is one of the most out of their anime I’ve ever seen (and that’s saying something when you take into consideration its crazy premise). More than that, Space Dandy offers up a large number of unique ideas and concepts, a fun cast of characters, and a ton of referential humor that should please any fan of pop culture. 

And with the English dub being handled by well-known actors such as Ian Sinclair, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

44. The Seven Deadly Sins (2014)

With its fascinating characters, great animation, and unique take on the “warrior” archetype, The Seven Deadly Sins is one action/adventure series with many potentials. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Brittany Karbowski, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

43. Psycho-Pass (2012)

In a world where crime is at an all-time low and technology knows no bounds, what happens when one becomes the other? And what happens when an investigation goes south? If you’ve got any of these questions in mind, then you should watch Psycho-Pass. 

A series that deals with serious topics about the corruption of society and the abuse of power at all levels, few shows are more thought-provoking than this one. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

42. The Heroic Legend of Arslan (2015)

With its unique visual style, interesting characters, and compelling narrative, The Heroic Legend of Arslan is one epic anime that started rather poorly but quickly improved. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Patrick Seitz, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

41. The Devil is a Part-Timer (2013)

The story about the world’s most evil man who ends up working part-time at Mcdonald’s because he can’t afford an apartment sounds silly enough, but when you take into consideration what lies behind all of it, The Devil is a Part-Time becomes much more enjoyable and also funny as hell. And with the English dub being handled by well-known voice actors such as Christopher Sabat, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

40. Sword Art Online II (2014)

Though the second season of the popular anime takes a dip in quality from its first one, there’s no denying that Sword Art Online II is still an exciting and fun ride. More than that, it contains some pretty impressive action scenes coupled with a strong female heroine, making for both an engaging storyline and a compelling character arc. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

39. ReL (2016)

An anime about a man who wakes up from a coma to discover that the world has become much more technologically advanced and that he’s been frozen for several decades sounds like something that would be interesting but kind of depressing. 

However, ReL is one of those quirky series with a lot of heart and a ton of references aimed at anime fans, so it should please any fan of pop culture. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors such as Kaiji Tang, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

38. Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III. Rebellion (2013)

Though the third and final film in a series doesn’t always have to be its best, it certainly is so here with Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III. Rebellion. 

Not only does this movie have some of the most impressive animation work from Studio Shaft, but it also contains one of those endings that just leaves you speechless. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Christine Marie Cabanos, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

37. Tokyo Ghoul (2014)

A dark anime about a world where monsters disguised as humans co-exist alongside them, Tokyo Ghoul has so much potential that was never actually realized. Though its first season is pretty well done, and the art style is unique in this day and age, it’s unfortunate that it doesn’t capitalize on everything that makes it interesting. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Chris Patton, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

36. Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part I. Beginnings (2012)

Though part one of three in an anime about young girls who make contracts to fight witches in exchange for making their wishes come actual sounds like something out of a poorly written anime, Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part I. Beginnings does have a lot going for it. Most notably is its intriguing art style and dark storyline, making a movie that’s much more mature than anything Studio Shaft has made before or since. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Cassandra Lee, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

35. Black Bullet (2014)

A sci-fi anime about people who develop extraordinary abilities after being infected/injected with parasites sounds pretty cool, but it takes a few episodes to get to that point. However, Black Bullet becomes a pretty enjoyable anime with some solid voice acting and fun characters once it does. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Matthew Mercer, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

34. Blood Blockade Battlefront (2015)

A dark, noir-style action/comedy anime about people who fight to protect their city from the beings that caused a giant hole to appear in their world is one of those titles that seems very niche at first but turns out to be much more accessible than expected. 

And while the style of storytelling will feel familiar for anyone who has seen anime before, it’s not something that we should overlook. And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Bryce Papenbrook, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

33. Sword Art Online II (2014)

A sequel to a popular anime about a virtual reality MMORPG where people cannot escape until they clear the game was guaranteed to receive at least another season, but would it improve upon what made the first season good? In this case, the answer is “not really,” as shown by how generic this season turned out to be. It featured better animation and action than its predecessor, but that’s about all it did right. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actresses like Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

32. Aldnoah.Zero Season 1 (2014)

An action/mecha anime where the protagonist must fight his political opponents across various planets while stranded on Earth sounds incredibly cool. Still, its convoluted storytelling makes it difficult to keep track of what’s going on. However, once all is said and done, Aldnoah. 

Zero becomes an anime with very high production values and great action scenes, even though the characters are too stereotypical to remember. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Johnny Yong Bosch, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

31. Is This A Zombie of the Dead (2012)

An anime about a young man who becomes a zombie and is forced to continue working even though he doesn’t want to sounds unoriginal at first. Still, it has some interesting twists on the premise that make it worth watching. It’s definitely not for everyone since its comedic tone can be hit or miss, but if you’re into slapstick action, then Is This A Zombie of the Dead will provide plenty of laughs. 

And with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Chris Patton, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

30. Sailor Moon Crystal Season 1 (2014)

For years, there was only one version of the famous magical girl anime Sailor Moon. But then came along an alternate version that would be more faithful to the source material. Alas, many fans were disappointed when the result turned out to be a low-budget, shoddily animated series that made them wish for what could have been if Toei Animation had put forth a better effort. Thankfully, it got better in subsequent seasons, even though it’s still not considered the definitive version. 

But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Cherami Leigh and Cristina Vee, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

29. Steins; Gate (2011)

An anime about time travel sounds generic at first, but it becomes much more interesting once the story takes off and different characters become involved. And while some could accuse it of using convenient plot twists to get out of difficult situations, all that ultimately happens is that the story becomes more enjoyable since we don’t see these problems coming until they do. 

It was also adapted into an acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, so if you enjoy the anime, then I recommend that you play it as well. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like J. Michael Tatum, Christopher Sabat, and Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

28. Btooom! (2012)

An action/survival anime where the protagonist must fight to survive on an island filled with people who have been forced to participate in a real-life version of the multiplayer video game they were playing sounds unoriginal at first, but it becomes something different once all is said and done. 

And while it’s understandable why some people would find its violence over the top, it only makes Btooom! all the more entertaining, in my honest opinion. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Bryce Papenbrook, Erica Mendez, and Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

27. Rurouni Kenshin (1996)

A shōnen anime about an infamous assassin becoming a wanderer that protects those around him may seem generic at first. Still, its mixture of excellent fight scenes and personal drama makes Rurouni Kenshin stand out from other similar anime. And even though some of its characters aren’t as memorable as others, a protagonist like Kenshin, both a skilled fighter and a caring person, makes for an interesting lead character. 

It was also adapted into several movies and OVAs where they expanded the fight scenes, so I highly recommend checking them out if you enjoy the anime. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like David Kaye, Ed Blaylock, and Illich Guardiola, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

26. Full Metal Panic! (2002)

A light novel adaptation about a teenage boy who is recruited into working for an anti-terrorist group sounds like yet another clichéd anime at first. Still, it becomes one of the best mecha anime ever once all is said and done. 

And while some could accuse it of having too many action scenes that lack variety in terms of their subject matter, they are executed very well by both its character actors and mechanical designers alike. It was also adapted into several novels that fleshed out the story even further, so if you enjoy this series, I recommend reading them. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Luci Christian, Patrick Seitz, Chris Patton, and Cherami Leigh, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

25. Little Witch Academia (2013)

An anime about a group of middle school girls learning to become proper witches may not sound all that attractive at first. Still, it becomes something special once the story takes off, and we see their adventures in magic continue through to its second half. And while some could accuse it of being too formulaic in terms of the type of stories involved, these particular tales are heartwarming and entertaining regardless since they all involve well-defined characters with genuine reasons for doing what they do. 

It was also adapted into an equally popular short film where it received the same high quality of animation that they can find in this series, so if you enjoy the anime, I recommend that you check it out. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Diana Garnet, Christine Marie Cabanos, Brittney Karbowski, and Molly Searcy, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

24. Detective Conan (1996)

An action/mystery anime about a teenage detective named Jimmy Kudo who was transformed into an elementary school kid due to an unexpected event may not sound all that attractive at first. Still, after seeing how dedicated he is to solving crimes, there’s a lot to love about this anime. 

And while it may be surrounded by mysteries that are sometimes too vague in terms of how they’re executed, there’s no denying that Jimmy Kudo is quite an exciting protagonist who never loses his drive to solve the most complex cases every time. It was also adapted into several live-action films where its characters were played by talented actors like Junpei Mizobata, Shiori Kutsuna, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Nanami Sakuraba, Yuu Shirota, and Tatsuya Fujiwara. 

But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Jerry Jewell, Kate Higgins, Richard Epcar, Matthew Mercer, Mela Lee, and Robbie Daymond, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

23. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (1995-96)

A story about five teenage boys who pilot mobile suits to fight for the colonies that seek their autonomy from an oppressive Earth government may sound like a clichéd anime at first. Still, it gets better once its narrative starts exploring darker themes through to its second half. 

And while some could accuse it of being too moody at times due to how much death is involved, the strong relationships between these characters make them stand out as people worth caring about regardless. It was also adapted into an equally popular sequel after the events of the TV series, so if you enjoy this anime, then I recommend that you check it out as soon. 

But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Brad Swaile, Michael Sinterniklaas, Kirby Morrow, Chris Patton, and Laura Bailey, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

22. Future Diary (2011)

An anime about a battle royale where participants can use cell phones to predict what will happen next may not sound all that attractive at first, but once each character is developed, it becomes something special. And while some could accuse it of jumping the shark by its second half, the character development throughout this anime makes it worth watching until its last episodes. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Johnny Yong Bosch, Cristina Vee, Yuri Lowenthal, Christine Marie Cabanos, and Mona Marshall, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

21. Fullmetal Alchemist (2003-04)

An anime about two brothers who are scientists living in an alternate world where alchemy is confirmed may not sound all that attractive at first. Still, once each character starts learning more about themselves as they journey to undo the mistakes they’ve made, it becomes something special. And with its fantastic animation and creative fight scenes throughout, this anime is one that every action fan should not skip out on seeing. 

But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Vic Mignogna, Aaron Dismuke, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Maxey Whitehead, and J. Michael Tatum, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

20. Gintama (2006-10)

A sci-fi/comedy/action/parody anime about an alien samurai may sound generic at first, but it’s such a fun ride that you won’t want to miss out on seeing. And while some could accuse it of having some pacing issues at times, the uniqueness of its humor and characters makes this series special. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Eric Vale, Erik Scott Kimerer, Ian Sinclair, and Patrick Seitz, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

19. One Piece (1999 – )

A pirate anime about a man named Monkey D. Luffy who eats a magical fruit to become an elastic being may sound generic at first, but it’s such a fun ride that you won’t want to miss out on seeing. And with over six hundred episodes (and counting), there’s more than enough content for fans of this anime to binge watch while they’re waiting for the next season. 

But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Colleen Clinkenbeard, Christopher Sabat, Sonny Strait, Eric Vale, Luci Christian, Brina Palencia, and John Swasey, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

18. Spice & Wolf II (2009)

An anime about merchants who travel across Japan using mythical currency while dealing with things like inflation may sound like something only economists could love. Still, this series is an exciting take on merchants whose primary goal is to make money. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like J. Michael Tatum, Brina Palencia, and Felecia Angelle, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

17. One Punch Man (2015)

An anime about a powerful hero who destroys enemies with just one punch may sound generic at first, but it’s such a fun ride that you won’t want to miss out on seeing. And while some might accuse it of having too many fillers, the rest of the anime more than makes up for it. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Max Mittelman, Zach Aguilar, Robbie Daymond, Erik Scott Kimerer, David Wald, and J. Michael Tatum, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

16. Last Exile (2003-04)

An anime about people who become sky couriers while exploring the world of Anatoray might sound generic at first. Still, this mecha show has some fantastic fantasy visuals that are jaw-dropping to behold. 

And while some could accuse it of being too complicated for its sound, I think it’s a series that needs to be rewatched multiple times. But with its English dub being handled by talented voice actors like Anthony Bowling, Luci Christian, and J. Michael Tatum, you can’t go wrong with giving this series a watch in any language.

15. Psycho-Pass (2012)

A sci-fi/police anime about detectives who use the Sibyl System to tell them what crimes people might commit may sound generic at first, but it’s such a fun ride that you won’t want to miss out on seeing. And while some could accuse it of borrowing elements from other sci-fi anime, this series has a fantastic cyberpunk look that makes for a stylish viewing experience.
