Dude. If you watch death note, Ryuk write the rules of death note in english because he said it was the current universal language in human world. Do you even wonder why there's a english subject in school worldwide?

To put it simply, English is used to sometimes express things that they can't say/write in Japanese. Also, it is the universal language...

Aside from English being the universal language, I think there are word in English that have no counterpart in japanese so they use english instead... Take robot for example...

If you've noticed, not everyone in the world can speak Japanese, and Japanese animators are trying to appeal to the world demographic, which just can't be done by sticking to the Japanese language.

And English is the widest spread language in the world, though it would've been cooler if it were Latin.

Some people are too lazy to read the subs and sometimes they just want to dub the anime in English because some people prefer to watch the anime in english.
