Just curious. I like watching both dubbed and subbed anime. I watched dubbed whenever I want to listen to the English voice acting. Also, it is easier to watch and I can do something else while watching it (because I don't need to read the subtitles to understand what's going on). At the same time, I also don't mind watching subbed anime, whenever I want to listen to the original Japanese voice acting in the anime. Watching subbed anime has also helped me pick up a few Japanese words. So what are are the advantages and disadvantages of watching subbed & dubbed anime?

There is a certain inauthentic feeling to most dubs. With anime that is meant to be in English, we sometimes get good dubs.

In my opinion there aren't much "variety" or "unique" voices by English dubbed animes, mostly because it is the same people. Only the real populer ones have unique ones like Naruto or Bleach. Other than that Japanese voice actors are CUTE

A lot of the English voice actors sound similar in every single anime. It get annoying after a while.

Dubbing in certain anime changes the whole texture of the productions tone.Inflection ,cadence, societal expectations,humor ,satire ,implication, application,all change with dubbing because some things are just not equivalent or translatable.

It think it's easier to prefer one over the other (the one being preferred is sub). Why? Well if you think about it, most anime don't get dubbed unless they are really popular. Therefore, if you like sub better then you don't have to wait.

Idk that's my reason.

Everything's better in its own language. No matter how good voice actors are, dialogs, animation and situations are meant to be said in japanese. Happens the same with all other media content.

After watching anime for so long, never watching dubbed, I can get the gist of what they are saying without even having to look at the subtitles. So, that pretty much gets rid of all reason to watch it dubbed anyways.
