I realize that some members of CR may like dubbed anime and that it is probably illogical to completely remove it from CR all together no matter how much I wish that would happen. So far I have only seen this with one series and maybe this is the one odd ball out (Kurokami) but if this is going to be something that CR is going to have more of in the future, that is dubbed only tittles, I would love to have a feature that will enable me to hide this content. or at least something that tells me that it is dubbed only and I am screwed.

To me, and to many members of CR, dubbed only is the same as not having the tittle at all. Or worse, its like playing the fool because you thought you where about to watch a great anime and then you hear that horrible destructive English voice acting that causes children to cry and your ears to bleed....

you get the picture

This is low priority since there's only about 9 shows that have English audio, one of which was originally produced in English and 3 of those are also offered with subtitles. We try to get the rights to offer the subtitled versions with the original audio but sometimes it's not possible so we have to make due with the dubbed versions. But I'll see if an option to filter them out can be added in the future.

List of Series with English Audio:

Obviously things produced in english to begin with are fine. Industry tends to like the idea of pushing their dubbed products and I know that is a cash cow for them. I guess the post was more fear that they would influence crunchy roll to move more in that direction.

I have always been a big fan of anime but the DVD / BD only route that the american anime industry seems to be stuck on cost to much for most american anime fans. (japan dvds cost more, but they get the stuff on regular TV first, we don't... well, for the most part any way).

I think crunchy roll has done a great job so far and If it keeps moving towards the goal of having every anime series subbed per season available to its members, I will be more then happy to continue my support :)

Thanks again guys.
