      That’s a bit of a complicated question. The only shows that I consider “better” in English are older(Dragonball, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, etc.), likely due to the lack of the current pool of talent in Japan. Nowadays, the English dubs of shows are, at best, just as good, but that’s not to say they’re uncommon. FLCL, Gurren Lagann, Full Metal Panic!, FMA, and a slew of others have brilliant English voice work, but it doesn’t surpass the original Japanese version. The only (relatively) recent series that I would consider better in the English dub is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya(along with subsequent titles of the same story).
      If you’re talking about potentially better, I can’t really say, as it depends so much on the actors involved. Some actors that are usually a good sign of quality are Travis Willingham(Roy Mustang[FMA/FMA:B]), Monica Rial(Tsubaki[Soul Eater]), Vic Mignogna (Ed Elric[FMA/FMA:B]), and Crispin Freeman(Alucard[Hellsing], Kyon[Haruhi]). If they’re there, it’s probably good.
