    I've just started watching Black Cat, and so far that's pretty good. So is Witchblade and Highlander.

    Is it bad that I intend to get the two Haruhi-chan sets when they're cheaper and not season 2? There's so much in those mini series to share with people but I can't even remember if I finished the whole second season.

    What's everyone's preference with regards to subs and dubs? Do you prefer to watch anime with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles or do you prefer an English dub? Personally I have no problem watching it with subtitles, plus I find it makes me pay more attention to it since if I look away I miss whatever they're talking about.

    I've just finished watching season 1 of K-On! (subtitled) and really enjoyed it. Is the dub worth checking out on the DVD set? Also, is it normal for the songs to be stuck in my head constantly? :p

    normally subs but will watch the dub in rare cases, the cowboy bebop, ghost in the shell dubs were pretty good and there were a few others
    but yeah most things will be subs,
    the dub is not great cant beat those japanese VAs

    also the songs yes there so catchy!!

    I much prefer subs, and I only like a dub if it's a good dub. Frankly, when I first started watching the Naruto dub, hearing him shout 'Believe it!' every 5 minutes grated on me a bit.

    Hmm yeah the dub just doesn't sound right. Yui sounds okay but not as good as the Japanese VA.

    And the songs are indeed catchy :D

    I agree. I've seen a fair few badly dubbed shows in my time. The Japanese Transformers series (Armada and Energon in particular) spring to mind. They were full of errors and the VA's just didn't give a good a performance as they could have.

    Varies for me. There are a few shows whre I actually kinda liked the dubs. Ghost in the Shell and Wolf's Rain spring to mind (couldn't get on iwth Wolf's Rain's Japanese cast for some reason). Depends what i'm doing as well. If i'm gonna zone in and out or am working then dub makes it easier.

    Not seen K-On! though so couldn't comment :)

    Same here. Sometimes, I prefer the English dub to the Japanese or vice versa.

    Regarding dubs vs subs, I tend to stick to subs except for a very few cases such as Fullmetal Alchemist, TTGL (though both sub and are great) and Death Note, and for the latter I will specifically say to anyone thinking of watching it to get the dub. And the K-On! dub is terrible.

    My favourite's are probably:

    Kino's Journey
    Time of Eve
    Escaflowne
    Macross Frontier
    Ano Hana
    and Madoka , those are the ones that stick out most to me.

    I seriously cant stand 99% of dubs, there are the odd rare oens I can but they are so few and far between it isn't worth mentioning. I stick with subs.

    I am currently watching a animé called 'Planetes', the sub titles are annoying me in that for the simple reason that it also registers background voices and they get mixed in with the important stuff and it's hard to tell who is saying what. it's a bit rare and I simply need to pause the video to get my bearings. I like it when some animé colour coordinate their subtitles to stop the confusion.

    Only thing I'm currently watching from this season so far is Acchi Kocchi. Amazingly cute and the main character looks like Konata (and the whole thing has quite the Lucky Star vibe to it)

    Real funny as well, very slice of life styled but ridiculous, and have I mentioned how cute it is?
    Will be looking to start catching up with Sankarea, Hyouka, and probably Medaka Box some time soon. Also just tonight saw an OVA called Hotarubi No Mori e at anime society, real emotional story and manly tears were nearly shed. Saw next few episodes of Shigofumi too which I'm enjoying alot and may have to look into making a new figure purchase. And of course, recently watched Boku Wa Tomodachi which was fantastic.
