Bleach Dub Episode 1
Overall I will give the dub of this episode a 9.5/10

I watched both the Japanese and English version at the same time and I have come to a few conclusions. First off, Rukia's voice matches perfectly. I could not be happier about it. The dialogue is pretty good, and the lips match for the most part. Ichigo sounds to nice. He needs to be a bit more gruff if you ask me. Then all of the other voices matched very well. I am glad that they kept the original opening and closing songs. Although, I am not pleased with how they did not translate everything Japanese for us like fandubs do (textwise that is). But what are you going to do?
