I just finished downloading a couple diferent rips of The Secret World of Arrietty, one is the American dub the other is the British dub, my question is which one is better?

It's for my little sister, so watching it with subs is out of the question. Any help?

If you're American, the American dub.
If you're British, the British dub.

But the Japanese version is best.
I think they changed the songs in the American version.

If you're not, the British dub.

FTFY

They did.

Personally, I think even young people should be made used to subtitles.
Once upon a time, subtitles were the norm, then only culture senders used them and nowadays they're pretty rare in every medium.
It was a time of glory and UNDERSTANDING. It was a happier time.

And tons of the dialogue as is necessary in a dub. Don't be fooled, all dubs are highly edited. Its just a matter of degrees of how much editing they do.

They should. Dubbing is only used by western distributors who want to control the product they are releasing. Because if you 'dub' it, you are blinding people of the original source. And getting people hooked on a totally new version (the dubbed version). Therefore, you are keeping control of the show in a domestic market by 'remaking' it with a domestic dub. This is why many foreign films and video games released in America have no dual audio version (like Bruce Lee movies or Final Fantasy/Metal Gear Solid games for example).

However, the minute people learn the source of the show, they have a chance of bypassing the distribution company and getting it directly from the source. Which has been happening to anime for 15 years now. People learned it came from Japan and just jumped online to get it for free. Why pay a middle man company $30 a DVD for a dub when you can just get it for free online? The only price is watching it in Japanese with subtitles....which it turns out is better in most cases.
