C-Roll tends to lean more towards subtitles which is fine by me as I prefer subs but that's neither here nor there. There are a couple of dubbed shows here which are Kurokami: Teh Animation and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, but those are the only ones that I'm aware of at the moment.

If dubs are your preference you might want to check out The Anime Network then:

They have quite the selection of dubbed anime.

Aside from the two Endosanity mentioned, I am not aware of any others here at CR. Gundam00 was also available in dub format here, but I notice it is no longer available at CR.

If you are in the U.S. or Canada, another source for dubs is Funimation's video site. Many of their shows there are available in both formats, although simulcasts are naturally an exception to that.

Although The Anime Network indeed has a large number of dubs, few of their series can be completed without becoming a paid subscriber.

It might be an idea to have a browse by language feature although there are so few it’s understandable why it isn’t there.

And it’s hard to navigate this forum. Why isn’t there a list by date feature? I searched for “list English dub” and many variations on on those words on the forum before stumbling across this. A list should be easier to find!

Half of the titles on the list aren’t available in the UK.

When I search for “English dub” in the media section I get a list of titles that aren’t available even thou my account has me being in the uk and when I click on them I get the message “Sorry, this video is not available in your region due to licensing restrictions”, which is frustrating. I’ve had the same problem before.

I used to watch through the crunchyroll portal on the uk anime site before being offered the 30 day trial. For me there isn’t any benefit for me converting to a paid subscriber other then no ads because all the things I would pay to watch aren’t available to me.

After the 30 days I will stick to watching through the UK-Anime site. I think this site, CR, is a great idea but until you get international licenses it’s not worth it for people like me signing up and paying for it.

I think these were removed and then re-added but I don't think anything else has been added recently.

Though, we're going to be pushing for more language options this year so we may get more dubbed Anime.

as far as roku goes, you also might try Anime TV which has about 5 or 6 series on it including mahoromatic, eas of syndrome, best student council, chance pop session, kilba and angelic layer.

, and there's also anime vice, but I think that's mostly a review channel..

For just plain ol cartoons, there's also Kidlet, but I don't think they have a lot on there as far as anime goes. There's also newsgroiund, and comic vine... but those are also review type channels. Kidlet is shows like sonic the hedgehog, etc.

anime vice is in channel store under special interest.

let me see if I can find the code for the other one...
duh, it's simply animetv. Add that to the private channel dealy in your account.

So long as dubbing doesn't affect the availability of shows I'm indifferent to it. I personally ended up at Crunchyroll because I was sick of Netflx having mostly dubs. Be that as it may there's tons of dubs out there legally on the internet.

One of the voice actors of bleach once commented that major driver for most dubs is backing from a cable network (i.e. Cartoon Network). There's not a lot of reason to sink money into a Direct-to DVD or Stream dub because it will be on a file sharing before you get a chance to recoup your money. My belief is CR has an advantage is they don't have huge production costs weighing on them.

Unfortunately I do not believe that CR has any plans to extensively increase their dub selection. CR's main focus is to simulcast shows just an hour after airing in Japan, which of course makes it impossible to also provide a dubbed version as dubbing a show takes months, sometimes years for certain shows.

You can cancel your CR subscription, but just know that you will most likely be waiting months or years until you get to see the shows that CR simulcasts in a dubbed format, and many of the shows don't even get licensed which means that unless you go the fansub route, you will never get to see the show. But if you are going to go the fansub route anyways, why not opt for a paid CR membership that can be as low as $5 a month to support the anime that you love so that more anime gets created in the future. Many Japanese anime studios have been falling on hard times due to not being able to meet sales figures, which is also why anime costs a fortune in Japan to recuperate lost sales to pirated copies. (An anime Blu-Ray that costs $40 in the US could easily cost over $100 USD equivalent in Japan, their prices are ridiculous)


I have friends who like both dub and subbed shows, so what the majority of them have done is signed up with Netflix for their dubbed anime and CR for their new subbed anime. That way they get the best of both worlds. A large selection of dubbed anime on Netflix and access to brand new anime right after it airs on Japanese television.

$100 more like 450 if it's 12 episodes.

12 episodes on a single disc? That would be great if they released them like that in the states. Sometimes they only put two episodes on a single disc.

I didn't think 12 episodes could fit onto one blu-ray disc.

For 40 dollars you can get angel beats from amazon.com the whole season, on amazon.co.jp you have to buy 7 different disk sets about $48 each, or more depending on the site plus shipping.
