Post Reply Am I correct to assume that ANN and CR anime forums are generally more welcoming to Eng. dubs?

In my experience, English dub fans are much more accepted here and at ANN.

However, ANN has more virulent anti-Dub people than CR seems to (which is kind of strange) and I've noticed that when arguments happen between pro-Dub and anti-Dub fans that the Mods have a tendency to step in only after pro-Dub fans seem to be winning the argument. That might just be my perception but I've seen several threads where the back and forth goes on for a while, a pro-Dub fan will post a particularly good criticism or counter-point to something an anti-Dub fan posted, then suddenly a wild Mod appears to allegedly chastise both sides but they usually seem to be placing the emphasis on the pro-Dub fan.

Again, maybe that's purely my own bias clouding my opinion but it's part of why I ultimately stopped posting over there. (I still lurk a lot and still see this).

Being an anti-dub person sounds dumb. You are litteraly fighting for less options. Options that aren't even for you. I never understood personally. I can understand not liking a voice, but being anti-dub? Now that's just silly.

Also ANN's mods are very strict. I get warnings all the times lol.

since it's rare for CR to have dubs, but I don't see anyone upset over them. however I have seen people prefer the dubs over subs if the subs are horrible and vice versa. I have seen arguments in the past on other sides, it'd start with debates and then jump into something far worse, but, this helps weed out the weebs. any true fan it won't matter, they'll watch their favorites if it interest them and sometimes later once dub rolls around.
