If you completely despise watching anime with English dubs and you force yourself to read subtitles instead, then I wouldn’t really blame you. Some English Dubs can entirely ruin an anime. One great example of that would be the good old 4Kids Dub of ‘Digimon‘. But on the other hand, there are also some great shows like ‘Fullmetal Alchemist‘, ‘Death Note‘ and even ‘Dragon Ball Z‘ that prove that even the English Dub can give you an equally enjoyable experience.
If you consider yourself to be one of those “purists” who just can’t stand anime with anything but their original audios, then this article may not be for you. But if you’re new to the world of anime and are seeking an access point, then we’re here to help. While most shows on Crunchyroll do not have English Dubs, fortunately for us, there are some really good ones that have one. Most of these dubs have a lot to offer and are almost as good as the original versions. So without further ado, here’s the list of the best English dubbed anime on Crunchyroll:
13. Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade (2000)
‘Jin Roh’ is an extremely moving anime film that follows the story of a Colonel who is left traumatized after he watches a young girl blow herself up during a suicide bombing. He then goes through a whole process of reconditioning and training to be ready for battle again. But his path towards rehabilitation is not going to be as smooth as he thinks it’ll be. Though this film is close to 2 decades old now, it is still as good as some of the acclaimed contemporary anime. The art style and quality are noticeably old but everything else, including the English Dub, has a timeless feel to it.
12. Princess Nine (1998)
‘Princess Nine’ is a sports anime you’ve probably never heard of. It released somewhere around the same time as ‘Slam Dunk’ and that’s probably the reason why it never became too popular. It revolves around an all-girl baseball team that is lead by a star pitcher named Ryo Hayakawa. It shows all the hardships and struggles these girls have to go through in order to make something out of their baseball career and to eventually reach the top. While the show does have a little bit of romance as well, its unique depiction of a sports-centric story is really inspiring.
