Before i owned a crunchyroll account, I didn't know it existed. I would use Netflix to watch anime's which were normally dubbed, but had the option of watching subbed instead. That option was never visible so I ended up watching every anime on Netflix dubbed. The difference between the two in my opinion, is that subbed adds more thought to the anime, and having to read the script and details draws so much more attention than watching it dubbed. Also, I noticed that subbed anime's are alot more interesting and detailed with the emotions. Maybe because to me an anime dubbed just feels like another cartoon. Nonetheless I have yet to find a bad anime subbed or dubbed, but if I were to choose between the two, I would have to choose subbed. Why you ask? because most dubbed anime's that I watch are either incomplete because the budget was short, or they couldn't think of how to create the rest of the story, regardless they have their reasons. For example; I watched D. Gray Man on Netflix. It was supposed to continue to a 2nd season, but there wasn't a 2nd season. because ( I think the company name was Gonzo) decided not to dub the anime anymore. Anyways, that kept becoming a trend, for example; Rosario+vampire, D. Gray Man, etc (been so long since I've seen anime's on Netflix). The companies have their reasons, but I don't want to hear them If i can just watch subbed anime's and know the series will most likely be completed.

I was dissatisfied with Netflix because for years now, they have had the same anime's. They might have uploaded a few here and there, but It's not enough. My friend recommended an anime called Sword Art Online after i finished the last anime on Netflix, and I had refused to watch it cause it wasn't dubbed. Well I sure missed out for months... I ended up watching it about a month ago, I loved it very much Then next he recommended Attack on Titan, watched it. Another amazing anime unfinished, but still in the making! After that, I went through the list of anime's crunchyroll had to offer, and I was so amazed. They had so many anime's that I had never seen before. I said screw Netflix, hello Crunchyroll xD

Welp, This is the end of whatever you wanna call it.

Also, I'd like to say thanks to Crunchyroll for keeping my interest in anime and keep up the awesome work!

edit: I realized I should post something about subbed versus dubbed. Let's go with the less winded answer of, dubs suck subs are better statement.

Eh, welcome to CR. And I'm glad you discover this site Better late than never.




The problem I have with dub is that... sometimes they take away the honorifics in the original Japanese dialogues... and well like they say, lost in translation. No translation is perfect due to differences in cultures. But I do prefer hearing the original Japanese dialogue.


(it doesn't really matter in high school animes, but if they were dubbing an Edo period anime... and the -dono is left out, I feel a bit iffy about that)

I'm not sure what that was either, but as it was more of a personal statement about stuff, and not in itself a discussion starter, and as we do already have a thread about subs and dubs, and we don't allow duplicates, I'm closing the thread.

But stick around. There are great places to share your thoughts.
