I'll +1 that Cowboy Bebop is one of the few anime that's better dubbed than subbed.  I've watched it both dubbed and subbed, and it's one of the only anime where I prefer the English dub.  The stars must have aligned, because everyone was on point.

I finished the second season of Ruroni Kenshin. The protagonist sort of reminds me of Batman with his no-kill policy, and there are definitely some great battles. I'm watching the dub, which I don't mind, since there are some occasional ethnic-looking and sounding Japanese, alongside characters like the broomhaired guy who sounded like a Southerner, reminding me too of Disney's Robin Hood where the Sheriff of Nottingham had a Southern drawl.

Rurouni Kenshin's second season is still one of my favorite arcs in battle anime.

Also, really digging your new avatar, Der Jermeister.

Recently on Netflix I had the good fortune of re-watching both Full Metal Alchemist series. I still prefer Brotherhood but both are excellent imho.

On youtube I've watched a lot of clips of the Big Green and Speedy dubs of the Dragonball Z movies. Both have a so bad its funny vibe to them.
