How much do you wish there were Japanese subtitles here on Crunchyroll?

Meh, not really.

Why? And are we talking Romaji or actual Japanese characters like Kanji, Hiragana kana and Katakana?

It might be a little convenient for people like me who know Japanese. Because I occasionally run into characters who speak in strange dialects and are difficult to understand. But other than that, I don't see them getting much use.

The question is, how many people on this site speak actual Japanese? Person above me does, but the majority of people who are on this site might not know it; therefore, including them would be kind of useless, if the majority of people who use this site do not speak the language.

Meh, not really.

Not really, I don't speak or read Japanese so I have no reason to want it.

CR would be just wasting their time.

I see where everyone is coming from with the fact that not many people here actually speak much Japanese, but for me personally it would be a great study material to have Japanese subtitles on CR. Honestly, if it was a function where you could turn it on or off it wouldn't be too useless, but at the same time that's also extra work for the CR staff to add Japanese subtitles to videos, as well as create them.

It would be a cool feature, but I don't necessarily see it happening.

It'd be great to have for those of us studying the language, but agree-- it likely wouldn't be worth CR's while to actually do it.

If CR did ever implement Japanese subs, it would also be nice if they gave the option for either romaji or kanji/kana, not together or just romaji. When learning Japanese romaji should be ditched pretty much right away and having romaji subs wouldn't be helpful.

However, I know plenty of people will want romaji as well as kanji/kana, so I can see romaji being used. That's why it would be nice to have either.

Japanese subtitles would make it so much easier to translate anime.

If I were currently learning Japanese, having Japanese subtitles would be a great help! However, I'm not, so it wouldn't really bother me.

Even though the translation can differ from the spoken language, you can pick up new vocabulary or other ways to phrase something. Its more of a help when your language skills are already somewhat good.

Hmmm, maybe I should learn Japanese in the near future...

I don't know Japanese, so not really. But it would be nice for those who do!
