What do you think about CR adding English dubbed series as well as subbed?

I have been a member for two years now and I love the shows on CR but I do think they would probably add more members if they offered dubbed titles in English (which the majority of the members speak) as well as the subbed versions. I'm not saying I don't like the Japanese voice actors but there are a lot of American voice actors I enjoy! What do you his think?

I'd like to see more dubs, but since Crunchyroll's model seems to work very well with getting catalog titles from some R1 companies, I can make do with the subtitled ones and if I really want the dub, I'll just buy the anime.

And I think there is probably some other thread that covers this.

Dubbed to me just dosn't sound right to me and so use to subbed as it is.

Well I wouldn't be against it. I mean I have friends who, while they will watch anime subbed, much prefer dubbed since they like being able to look away for a bit and understand whats going on. I've gotten used to subs that it doesn't matter to much to me, but why not?

I think it would be nice if Crunchyroll could stream anime with more diverse dubs. It would be a breath of fresh air during this era of Funimation domination.

That would be pretty cool, but I don't know how practical that is. Firstly, because CR seems to get a lot of simulcasts where dubs don't even exist. Secondly, I think getting dubs require more complicated or expensive licensing or something. Anyway, while that would be great to see more dubbed stuff, sadly, I don't think it will happen.

Plus i'm sure it would lead to unnecessary and unwanted arguments from the respective dub and sub elitist communities. I can just see all the arguments now...

I'm fine with just watching dubs on bought stuff or dubbed streaming services like Funimation (and other occasional free dub streams that sometimes pop up on Hulu and YouTube).

while i prefer subs i know many people like the dubs and it is an untapped market for CR but they probably won't because there are so many dubbed streaming options out their (netflix, neon alley, etc) and CR claim to fame is subbed anime

Just as long as I get the original audio track subbed then they can add all the dubbed stuff they want.

Bro, Subs not dubs! I don't like watching emotionless anime that is dubbed. English voice actors rarely even know the dialogue or mood, they just get handed the script and told to read as is. No thanks!

I'd like to see more dubs. Just to have a bit more diversity. Might attract more viewers as well. I'm partial to the occasional dub, myself. But I do agree with another poster that it would probably be a lot more of a hassle to get dubbed anime. If they can do it, great, but if they can't, or if it would take away from their subbed catalogue, then things are fine just as they are.

For me, I like both. There will be times when I'm working or doing something hobby related (like painting or building model kits). Then I will have a dub playing so I don't miss anything. With subs, I have to watch the screen constantly.

As long as I have a subbed option it will be okay. It's hard to listen to dubbed when you have been watching subbed anime for several years. Something is always off. That being said, I think the option should be avaialable for those who enjoy dubbed anime. Funimation's streaming service has a similar feature where you can select either subbed or dubbed.

I'm thinking crunchy likes where they are at. I'm sure there is a whole other process to go through to dub anime, and they probably figure why mess with a good thing. Funimation and Sentai dub more anime than I'll ever be able to watch anyway.

One thing i would note though is that dubs might bring more people into anime. I know personally I may have not gotten into anime if everything was just subs, but when I started watching shows like Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and other classics I wanted to explore anime in more depth. That's when i started to get into subs.

I'll be glad to see that.

Too bad they didn't do that anyway without worrying about people bitchin' over "terrible" dubs...oh well.
