Just finished watching Sankarea, which was amazing. About a boy who loves zombies and a girl who wants to escape her overbearing father. Accidents happen and all of a sudden she's a zombie and it's the boy's job to care for her. I'm also in the middle of Shokugeki No Souma which is still premiering in Japan. It's basically like Iron Chef, a boy from the shopping district who is an amazing cook because he runs a Japanese restaurant with his father enters a high school where cooking battles or Shougeki are used to decide events that will happen in the school (so if someone wants to get more funding or has a dispute with another student they battle it out.) And of course because he's not from a prestigious family everyone makes fun of him until they realize that he actually does have skill.
New things I'm looking forward to are: Attack on Titan Junior High (chibi version of the original), Kamisama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama (Darn Cute looking!), Dance With Devils (reverse Harem), and Chivalry of a Failed Knight (magical romance). I also would like to see Beautiful Bones, the animation looks great!

Spartan0325, I can definitely sympathize since my fiance also prefers dubbed as he sometimes finds it hard to keep track of the subtitles and action at the same time. So to help I found this site that keeps up with everything that is currently being released with dubs or older animes that are being redone with dubs: www.animetoon.eu/new-dubbed-anime

Yea that's exactly it for me....back in the day I was basically forcing myself to like subbed because everyone hated dubs so much...but eventually i got comfortable with the fact that subs just aren't for me.
Besides, I've been watching a handful of shows that came out in the past few years and in my opinion the quality of the acting in dubs have gotten much better.
And thanks for the site redeyesarucard I'll take a look. Also since im pretty sure ur name is a Hellsing reference do you know any good vampire anime that came out recently? I just finished seraph of the end and I really enjoyed it so I'm looking for anything similar

Yep, it is a Hellsing reference And sadly I do watch way too many vampire and supernatural animes.
Seraph is a fairly action packed one and most animes that tend to have vampires are more slow moving, lots of suspense and mystery, or are comedic in approach. Even Blood + is slow in the beginning, but it had some really good fight scenes once her "power" awakens. I'd suggest Strike the Blood as that has a good balance. Also, even though this is a bit older, Melty Blood (aka Tsukihime or Lunar Legend) has an interesting story and great animation. Most people don't know of it though.
The other one I'd suggest that doesn't have vampires but does have supernatural/ninja powers is Nabari no Ou, which is about an average high school boy who finds that his body hides this ultimate weapon. I couldn't stop watching it.
All of these can be found in Sub and Dub, except Strike the Blood which so far I've only found sub on it.
