Really? I stand corrected. I guess I am personally biased when it comes to
anime music because I dislike much of the J-pop/anime music genre. I've watched
a couple of episodes of Gundam W and find much of the dub job as abysmally poor
as most other American dubbed anime I've seen. I'll take subbed episodes over
dubbed ones anyday!
