Which anime series have had the best dubbings (into English or any other language)?

I haven't heard many dubs because they so often aren't that good, but my sister says the dub of Wolf's Rain is really good.

I think Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist have great English dubs. In fact I have only seen those series in English (and they are two of my favorite series). Another off the top of my head is Black Lagoon, though I didn't care for the second season of it in general.

(Warning: have not seen it yet!)

Last Exile and Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex as well.

Ah, GTS, another great one. While I'm not huge into it, I do appreciate it. Especially these.

I have a very low opinion about dubs, mostly because they suck, but also because I like listening to Japanese girls talk. :)

But the two that I always thought were top-notch were Cowboy Bebop, and... crap cant think of the name of it... the space western with the guy that had the arm that turned into a cannon and he always blew stuff up... it tried to be a serious anime, but should have stayed comedy.

Never watched Last Exile dubbed... I saw the subbed versions first. I liked FMA as dubbed as well, and have only seen Ghost in the Shell dubbed. So I guess theres four that are pretty well done.

I actually like to just watch it in its original setting, and just read the subs. This is do to the fact that the Japanese language sounds SO AWESOME. I mean, the way we pronounce our English words is in no way comparable to the awesome sounding Japanese words...even their offensive words sound cool!! Bakatare:D See...that bit is awesome:D

The Germans sound pretty awesome too, but that's a different story....

I'm just gonna quote you for good dubs, since you list a lot of good ones. Adult Swim tends to get good dubs 95% of the time, so most of theirs count(which is most of your list).

But the two that I always thought were top-notch were Cowboy Bebop, and... crap cant think of the name of it... the space western with the guy that had the arm that turned into a cannon and he always blew stuff up... it tried to be a serious anime, but should have stayed comedy.

You're thinking of Trigun. It was the first anime dub role for Johnny Yong Bosch, who would in recent years become a very big anime dub VA, starring in the likes of such great dubs as Eureka Seven, Bleach, Gurren Lagann, and Code Geass. I never watched much of Trigun, but I did like it.
