The FUNi dub is my favorite- the 4kids dub was one big facepalm.
To tell you the truth, I don't like either of them. Sure, Funi did a better job then 4kids, but the Japanese is just, well, a bit more meaningful.
I don't watch the dub.
FUNimation was my favorite. Though, I did like most of the 4kids voice actors for the strawhats. I could've lived without Sanji's VA though.
Funimation dub for sure, can't wait for season four.
I only watch the subbed version, but I know for a fact that Funimation dub is better.
FUNimation dub: not even close. OP was, hands down, by far the worst 4Kids dub I've ever seen. I only watch some scenes from it to get some laughs at how bad it was. The cuts and edits here were severe (not the riceball edits the brainless fans here moan + complain about -- I'm talking some actual character cuts, entire arcs removed ((thumbs up to the Apis arc removal, though)), and gun changes with super soakers, etc.), the voice acting was very, very poor, the intros and dub BGM were garbage, the script writing was utterly childish and stupid, major plot points were ignored entirely or erased...I honestly hated it. Though, it does make me sad, because ALL of 4Kids dubs have been given an automatic fail label or bad reputation because of this one, when that's not really true: I thought 4Kids did do some decent dubs as well. For example, I really think the 4Kids Pokemon dub is better than the current TPCi dub, so they did have some good points in my eyes. OP was just NOT the series for them, IMO.

I only really liked Marc Diraison as Zoro, and Lisa Ortiz as Chopper. The rest gave me severe headaches most of the time, but Luffy (Erica Schroeder), Usopp (Jason Griffith), and Sanji (David Moo) were the worst of the bunch. Though, Sanji's voice was so bad for his character, that it was beyond hilarious to listen to. xD.
I love the FUNimation voice actors, though, especially Stephanie Young as Nico Robin. XD.
the funimation dub is better
