If I were deaf I'd definitely watch! It's like manga with colours and movements ^^

i mean... ... there are subs and subs are usurally better than dubs. Trust me... ... you dont want to hear somethings.

Yes, though it'd suck to miss out on a good soundtrack.

But I'd probably be reading manga more.

Oh for sure, its one of those visual mediums where sound isn't nessecary, it just enhances the experience. I've watched anime without any sound so many times at work on my iPhone already, I really don't notice anything different about it anymore.

Deafness wouldn't stop me, I watch without sound often enough at work, and some times during late night.. but blindness would, because what's the point then? Even if I were at a native level of fluency, there's just too many visual cues and sight gags to rely on just the audio track..
Blindness would seriously shut down most of my entertainment.. stand up comedy (except for some like Demetri Martin) and music would remain, and I suppose audio books would replace ordinary novels (and braille, i guess) but TV anime and movies, manga, comics, webcomics, and video games would be shot. I don't think I'd cope too well.

Sure - there's subtitles. Deaf people watch movies all of the time and it's not weird. Most of the time, the expression will give away what they're talking about - especially in anime when everything is over-the-top.

I probably wouldn't watch anime if I were blind.

Of course I would, I still have my subs! I wouldn't let something so minor get in the way.

I would take some time to adapt to being deaf, but I would probably still watch anime.

Oh come on of course i will, thanks to subtitles and probably sometimes i would be grateful of being deaf because i would skip some of the most annoying hi-pitched voices that sometimes are present in anime
