I prefer subbed anime, but there are some dubbed animes that are good, for example Dragon Ball, Naruto, in my opinion.

Neither. I watch both Some Japanese subs are just terrible and vice versa.
I will say I do get hype and rush to here an anime's dub if it is privledged enough to get one.This isnt the 70's anime more. Dubs are getting better and better. Its good to hear my first language once in a while

Watching hundreds of hours of subtitled anime has gotten me pretty used to them and I've grown to prefer them. I also like that I've managed to pick up quite a few Japanese phrases now through osmosis.

The only dubs that I prefer anymore are the ones that I had previously watched. It's too jarring to go back and re-watch an anime that I've seen before in a different language. For anything that's new to me though, it's subtitles all the way.


I couldn't agree with you more. I tend to drift to whatever I saw it in first. Excluding Naruto and a bit of Bleach. But after watching both subbed, the English dub is terrible. And for Clannad I have to go with the dub 100%. Ushios Japanese voice makes me cringe. The dub fits just perfectly for me, Or maybe its just because I'm a huge Luci Christian fan.

(I often find myself telling my supervisor to shut up in Japanese and not realizing it.)

I only watch English dub if they pick good voice actors that go along with the character's personality, looks, and the way they act around the other characters. There aren't very many that have good voice actors though though... but if I'd had to say that Soul Eater is my favorite English dubbed version of an anime.

I prefer Japanese dub because all the voices sound nicer and the go accordingly with the characters.

It always depends on the quality of the voicework for me. For example, I feel that Hetalia, High School of the Dead and Disgaea 3 all have superior English tracks than their Japanese actors. However, I prefer Welcome to the NHK, DeathNote and Disgaea 1 in Japanese because, likewise, their Japanese voices are better.

I can read quickly and am studying Japanese anyway, so it's not like subs are a strain for me.

Well, I don't mind both. 'Cause like the original seiyus, the dub voice actors did their best to try to capture the similar feeling of their characters that we know and love ........or hate. BUT as long as they DON'T kidfiy my favorite anime. Oh, god, even with 4kids gone for good, I still get chills just thinking about it. "shivers"

Highly variable. In general I would say dubs, but as it has been stated already, quality of dubs varies a lot. Lately I have been enjoying Funimation's dubs more and more.

I've also gotten pretty used to reading subs (Hello, Crunchyroll!) but it will always be "text on the screen" in the end and I would rather take in the image as it was meant to be without missing any of the scenes. Subs have their limits and energetic scenes with lots of rapid dialogue just aren't as enjoyable when you're reading through it all.

I love being able to see contemporary anime asap which is only feasible with subs, but the ones that I like I would rather watch with dubs again later, to really get all that I can out of the story. If a series already has a dub I usually watch and prefer that.

Sub If i'm going to pay full attention. Dub if its something I can play in the background while i do something else. Plus I can't explain it, but I can only watch Baka and test if it is dubbed.

I watch whatever is available. IF I can't find any dubs, I will watch a sub. However, whichever one I see first will pretty much always be the one I stick with. I won't start on a dub if I watched the subs first, and subs are un-watchable for me if I am already attached to the dub.

Back when I was young, I was a dub-hating arse who thought the Japanese language was a gift from the animation heavens. Now that I've got that stupidity out of my system, I'm finding that I want to see dubbed anime more and more, so I will watch a dub whenever I can, unless it's a god-awful performance like Karin.
