Dub man all the way.  I don't hate subs mind you.  It's just that if it's in english I'm going to watch it in english.  Eng Dubs aren't has bad has say 10 to 15 years ago.

Hentai dubs makes my Ears bleed sometimes, so If have to watch a subbed version to keep my sanity when it comes to that lol.

But when it comes to normal anime I can do both.

@N15PCA:
Seriously. Its just easier to watch it in English if its in English.

I used to watch subs, but duo to the fact that i'm a slow reader i had to pause the anime every 5 seconds, witch ruined the experience of action anime. i also notice that with dubbed i was able to notice smaller details (EX in a scene in Slayers i watch three times subbed, the first time watching it dubbed i noticed a character appeared in the background and started laughing his ass off) i'll probably start watching subs again eventually, but for now it's dubs

If the English dub is any good (Its easy to tell within the first episode what quality the dub is) then I'll watch the dub. If its crap, I'll go subs.

I usually prefer watching subs, some of the things said in anime just sound plain stupid in english, but that's just because of japanese culture in general I think. Plus I think it's kinda cool to watch stuff and hear japanese voices, I like japanese. Oh and obviously dubs are behind the original japanese aswell so by watching subs I can watch all the brand new stuff instead of having to wait.
 
There are some things I will watch dubbed though, like Dragon Ball Z for example, that stuff is fine. But I tried watching Bleach in english... no thanks.

I prefer watching subs first, then dubs once they come out.

If I can I will usually watch the dubs first otherwise I will watch subs if the dub is not very good or if there is no dub for the anime yet.

Most underground anime that people try to dub ends up sounding awful... Like one example *NOT UNDERGROUND AT ALL BTW* Is "Keroro Gunsou". The Funimation dub was HORRIBLE.. Some are okay, like they did a great job with DBZ, but in my opinion, anime would be better with subs, not dubs...

Subs. And not just for anime, I rather hear the original voices in everything.

has to be Dubs. as an Irish anime fan growing up anytime anime was shown on tv it was always the dub so its just my natural way to watch. i have watched plenty of subs too though so i have nothing against them.

I like the dubs if they are good. IMO Code Geass and Death Note did a great job on dubbing it and I still enjoyed watching them even though I knew what was going to happen.

I don't mind listening to both subs and dubs, just so long as the dub has decent enough voice acting and there is actual effort made into the roles performed.
