I was wondering why there isn't an ability to have both subs and dubs for those that like to watch anime while working. I don't get to watch anime any more cause most if not the only option is sub's. I don't have time to devote undivided attention to anime. I know you probably can't afford to do Dub's for every series. I'm not asking that I'm only asking to give a few series a trial of dub's. Also would be a great benefit for people with eye problems. I went through a scare recently with blood vessel hemorrhaging in my eyes and blood leaking into my eyes blocking my vision. It's getting better but would still have been nice that during that time to be able to watch anime like I used to.

If you already have some anime's with Dub's on them, it would be nicer to single those out in their own category to see if anything i like is there.

CR is mostly subs, though, they focus on delivering as many as possible, the same day that shows air in Japan. Dubs here are just opportunistic, as CR does not create their own.

If you want mostly dubs, then you should check out Funimation, who does do the dubbing themselves (which comes out several weeks later than the original airdate, and only for a limited set of shows). CR and Funi have partnered, and the agreement is Funi--dubs, CR--subs.

Right on thanks for the tip! I had a bad taste in my mouth with funimation from back when they would change the storyline of anime's early on, but I haven't checked them out recently.

As the saying goes, for every rule, there is an exception. Don't forget they commissioned a dub for Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club well before their partnership with Funimation. (Discotek's home video release was subtitled only).
