Good anime openings/endings dubbed in your language?

I don't know about English or other languages but here anime used to get some nice dubbed versions of anime. Nowadays however we just have (really) crap voice acting... Actually, we almost don't have anime on TV anymore.

I'm gonna be posting here some good openings and endings dubbed in brazilian portuguese... I might post more if this topic survive. Feel free to post openings and endings in other languages too.

I admit I haven't seen many dubbed OP's but one song actually like more in the English dub rather than the Japanese original is Dragon Ball Kai's OP "Dragon Soul":




And while I find the Japanese one of this OP better, the dub is still such a delight to listen to:




Good god Vic Mignogna can sing. =)

A bit chessy sounding, still I adore the english OP for Captain Tylor.

Honestly, the only real English openers that I like are some of the ones from pokemon, and really that's the only complete anime (if it can be called that) that I like dubbed. Otherwise I like all Japanese OP/ED's.

But from the Japanese OP's, my favorite is probably the first season opener of Death Note.

Likewise, for ending themes, I like the Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu ending, mostly because it's entertaining enough to watch (I'm not a big fan of ending themes)

It is rare to come across things such as this. Usually I am against dubbing over Japanese songs under most circumstances but there are a few gems out there.

These are my top ones:

Tenchi Muyo TV English Opening. I LOVE this version, a lot more than the original. Actually, I love the dub more than the original too....so...yeah. XD




Nerima Daikon Bros English Opening and Ending Chris, Greg, and Luci seriously put the original singers to SHAME. They do. Honestly, they're amazing when they sing.



Magic Knights Rayearth Second Season English Opening This one...I've only seen the trailer but I thought it was beautiful and quite well done. I absolutely hate saying this but the Japanese openings remind me of chipmunks. XD;
(can't find the vid for that. oh wellz. :x

I wouldn't say it's a good dub, but it's certainly hilarious. Bonus points if you can understand the lyrics, haha.

Gotta love these old-school Portuguese dubs.

Gomene! I dunno what code can I use to post this as a video.. -.-"
I didn't either so I did a "test-quote" on the other members' posts to see how they did it. XD

It's really simple!! You just do this (replace the parenthesis with brackets though)

(youtube]frrKTR2O63Q[/youtube)

Just make sure you put only the last part of URL in between the youtube brackets and voila!

Pioneer used to dub most of the OP/ED to anime they released in NA up until they transitioned to DVD. I liked a lot of their dubbed songs; understanding the lyrics made you realize how hilariously awful most anisongs really are. Yeah, yeah the lyrics were often changed in translation, but come on most anisongs are bad.

Here's a few I liked:

I can't find the songs with the OP/ED animation, but here's Phantom Quest Corp. I think the songs are amazing, I'll let you guess whether they're amazing in a good or bad way.




Moldiver, another cheesy one. I liked the Japanese version better simply because yelling out ridiculous things like "Metamorforce!" is somehow less mortifying in Japanese:



Pretty Sammy OVA. The lyrics are incredibly inappropriate.



Tenchi Muyo OVA. I believe this is the same singer as the Pretty Sammy OVA above.



El Hazard The Wanderers OP



Now for an oddity. This is the opening from the Turbografx CD game The Dynastic Hero. I've always wondered what the story was behind this. The game came out about a half year after Pioneer started releasing Tenchi Muyo in English. This opening music sounds like something straight out of Tenchi. Makes me wonder if the same artists/studio that did the Tenchi songs also did this (the game has nothing to do with Tenchi).:



Record of Lodoss War OP. Again, I prefer the Japanese version, but the English is good too:



There's also another version of the Lodoss OP by Arai Akino (composed the OP). Slightly "Engrishy" but still interesting:



Record of Lodoss War ED



About Rayearth earlier in the thread, I liked Sandy Fox's songs for the English version, but I really liked one of the two English openings done by Working Designs for the Sega Saturn game. Unfortunately, the only video I could find on Youtube had horribly stuttering audio. I need to rip the opening and upload it to Youtube someday.

Also speaking of Sandy Fox, I have to admit I liked her version of "Freckles" for Rurouni Kenshin.

Now a Korean opening for Nurse Angel Ririka SOS. The Korean opening is very different from the Japanese one (the ED is similar to the Japanese ED):



Spanish opening for Maison Ikkoku. I think I'd love this song in any language. I found a Catalan version too, if anyone know of other versions please post (I'd like to hear the song in French, but the French opening for Maison Ikkoku is a different song).

Holy crap!! You're not kidding about the lyrics! The Japanese version isn't nearly as....inappropriate! And here I thought only the "SASAMI HAS BOOBS AND PANTIES LOL" scene was inappropriate in that OP!
seriously...what was up with that? o_O They never sexualized her in the OVA OR the TV series!

AUGHHH I totally forgot about this gem! Bad me!! XD *hits self with stick* I was so enchanted with it from the first time I heard it. Wow, the refrain still gives me a chill! SO NOSTALGIC!!

YES! YES! She's very good at singing and doing "cute" voices.

It's really funny-when I first heard her singing, I was like "I KNOW THAT VOICE! WHY?" So I looked up her name. I had recognized that she does Guni the little green fairy demon thing in the Nightwalker dub, my favorite vamp anime. So...now...when I hear her songs, I'm forever picturing Guni....singing....which is not something Guni would do...so it's really weird!! XD

Since the above have mentioned Sandy Fox and I can only agree, here's Freckles:


and while we're on Rurouni Kenshin, I also liked the English ED:

My favorites french-dubbed theme songs include Fist of the North Star (that makes me laugh like crazy), Saint Seiya and Dragon Ball Z (the classic one). I also liked the arabic dub of Hunter X Hunter ending theme (that I find it wonderful). I also notes that I'm a huge fan of Cardcaptor Sakura's french theme song and many more magical girl animes (even Mirmo! at some point !).
