Would you still watch anime if you were deaf?

Being blind would pretty much put a damper on anime, since it relies a lot on visual. But deafness wouldnt matter at all. I dislike the majority of dubs (if not all), so subs would be quite useful.

It would be hard unless you see the character talking, you wouldn't know who is saying what or if it is a narrator or not. Not impossible, just frustrating, but you could always ask someone else on a line you're confused at. Or if you follow the flow you could figure it out. Anime that uses music a lot would suck such as Tari Tari.

Being blind is different though, if you can't understand Japanese you would have to wait until it gets dubbed. Even then it would suck because some scenes are action / fighting.

I'd definitely keep watching anime if I became deaf, especially since I already prefer subtitles when I watch my anime.

Well, if I suddenly became deaf I would still be able to read subtitles (Because I knew how to read before my deafining). So yes, I would.

If I were born deaf, or went deaf before leaning to read...chances are I would not watch anime...Or most other things for that matter.

I mean...I did spend three years watching anime without sound. (I only had a old desktop that was in our living room, so I had to turn the sound off as not to disturb the rest of the family, who were useing the TV) It's pretty aesy to tell what tone a character is useing, due to body actions and facial expressions. Once you get use to it...It's not taht bad.

It would change which anime I watched ~ there are some anime that I am sure I like a lot more because of the opening or the theme music. One that comes to mind is the fighting theme music for Madlax ~ I'm not sure I would enjoy the fights as much without that music. But I'd still watch anime even if I was deaf.

Mind, I prefer subs, so if I went blind, that would be a different matter.
