Sorry, but people who claim they cant read and watch animation at the same time either suck at reading or are just lazy. I'm not fond on dubs because so much of the original expression through voice gets lost, because instead of trying to express meaning with their voices, english dubbers must instead follow a device when recording that allows what they are saying to sync up with the moving lips, that's why it seems corny to most and they extent words like, "Yeesssss...." or whatever just so the lips sync.

The good things with dubs though is it gets the name of the anime out there, so you can get more merchandise, and if you hate dubs, hey just turn on the japanese audio with subs and it's all good.

i prefer subs rather than half-assed dubs. because i like to listen to their original japanese voices while reading the subtitles rather than grimacing at weird sounding/mismatched/lifeless dubs.(no offense) ...and, i agree with the post above mine....Animax is starting to bore me too....they use the same voice actors again, again, and again...(bring back japanese audio with subs in Animax!!!) =_= well, good thing there's crunchyroll.com...

......AND CLANNAD BEING DUBBED IN ENGLISH?! NEVAAARRR!!!!! they'll just mess it up...>_<

You people get REALLY annoying! Why do you always complain about dubs!? People have the right to do it if they want....Most Animes you would have grown up with were probably dubbed. Think about this: some of you guys hate English dubs thinking they sound crappy, but Japanese is alright. Ok? Now think about it if you were a Japanese person. You could be thinking that English sounds good but the Japanese is stupid. Now what about people that cant read fast enough. Do you seriously think they're going to pause every five seconds just to read one line. Really people....Just think before you go bad mouthing things.

One more thing......If you don't like it DON'T WATCH IT!!!!!

Most of the time I really dont care about if they are making a dub. I like the japanese w/ english subs better but sometimes dub aren't really that bad and for those that really hate dubs for some reason(mostly because of 4Kids) you just need to deal with it.

I definetley agree people have to stop bitching about this kind of stuff. After all it really is annoying to pause the screen just to read and alot of dubs in my opinion are good. Sure they're not as great as the Japanese but it least helps people some new animes that you never heard or never had a chance to do so because of wasting time pausing like 30 times. After isn't that the point of dubbing, NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE EVIL! Apparently ppl that hate dubs cant get that in their heads.

I agree. Dubs sometimes suck but some are actually really good. This one I wouldn't mind being a offical dub.

According to Animenewsnetwork, ADV has decided to release Clannad on DVD sub-only. This means that Clannad will not not be dubbed in English.

ADV intends to release Clannad on DVD in two 12-episode boxsets with an MSRP (suggested retail price) of $40 each, the first of which will be released on March 3rd. Online shops like DVDpacific and Rightstuf offer pretty good discounts, which should allow me to get the boxsets for under $25 each. A very good price for the initial release of such a high profile anime IMO.

Any of you guys buying Clannad on DVD as well?

i can only really watch eng dubs if ive never seen it in jap. to me, a jap dub is almost always better for anime because the anime that was originally jap flows really well with the jap language. its the same with eng cartoons, i know id cringe like i do for jap anime dubs if i ever heard, oh i dont know, aang or garfield, start talking in jap or german or french or any language other than the original english.

also im kind of a purist for anime but that mainly my problem.

I personally hate dubs, but there's no reason to go out of your way to end them.
Not everyone goes online to read subtitles. There are many who are just fine watching them in English.
Also, how do you think a lot of us were introduced to anime?
By the dubbed version coming on air. At least that was my story.
Growing up with dubbed Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Case Closed, Fruits Basket, Inuyasha, FMA, .Hack, ETC. on television.
Dubs probably won't go away and even though I don't like them now (Since they've lead me to discover subbed versions), but they're good because you have to start somewhere, right?

The dubbing for Clannad...is horrible it feels like the characters personalities were butchered and it kind of takes away what the anime. The Japanese version for Clannad is much better though, but for other anime there are some exceptions...the dubbing doesn't suck and sounds really good!
