 ARE getting better. >>

 Yep, I agree. There's nothing wrong with a quality dub. Along is its a good
quality dub, I have no problems with dubs. Bad dubs ruin the name for the
good dubs out there. While I have only seen dubbed Evangelion, the dub seems
to be very good.

 BTW, How good is Bandai's Gundam dubs? I want opinions of the quality of the
dub, how true is it to the Japanese original? not biased opinions :)
