Why there is not even a single English dubbed Anime on this site? At-least keep some dubbed version for Premium Users who are already paying monthly for the anime...

Here are a few:

- CR's English Dubbed Anime
- http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-788825/crs-english-dubbed-anime

Edit: Also, CR just added the English Dubbed version of Rurouni Kenshin: http://www.crunchyroll.com/rurouni-kenshin (scroll to the bottom). All 94 episodes of the original TV series.

Also, since you're a Premium member, you might want to check the CR Premium Members forum for suggestion threads. They might listen to some of your ideas in that forum if you present them in a mature manner.

Cheers.

I find it very funny that a non member has explored the possibilities of a resource than a person with full access.

This is probably going to get deleted quickly, since there is clearly a sticky for this subject above.

However, I personally couldn't give a crap about there being dubs here. Dubs blow.

I wonder how many sub-elitists this thread will attract before it gets closed.

I don't get why people don't lurk around a little before posting a forum thread.

There is plenty of dubbed shows on CR. Which is more than I want it to have... if I wanted dub I would go to another particular website I know of that more or less is the reason why Dubbed shows even exist in the states from what I have seen (most shows on Toonami seem to come from them after all)

I don't get why they wouldn't have lurked more before paying for a membership. Could have easily found that their biggest complaint wouldn't have been solved by buying.

Japanese dubs suck too. You want to know why you can't tell they suck though? Cause you don't speak Japanese and can't understand shit that's going on and how things should be said and so on.

You know, I've always wondered about this, because I don't speak Japanese. But, when I watch non-anime shows and movies, I notice the way they speak is far different from animes. It always made me wonder if Japanese dubs also suck as much as English dubs.

Lets see if we can get a civil discussion going to prevent a lock.

Main reason for the lack of dubs simply is that CR caters to the latest, more unique and classic anime genres. For most of which, the dubs were never made or havent had time to be done yet.

Personally, if a show is dubbed well, I will prefer it in that format. Allows me to focus more on the visual inflections of the animation. If I am constantly reading, I cannot get as deep into the series. This is especially common for some series where there is written and multiple conversations going on fast paced. It can simply become too much to follow with out pausing etc.

Another dub vs. sub issue is it isn't the 80s anymore. TV networks are doing far less of the editing for content and their own tastes than that of the past. Things such as vocabulary changes to dumb down or make a show kid friendly. Also some think that they had to in order to attract a wider audience. Time to example.

Initial D, the first subs were done to try to appeal to the hip hop/MTV crowd. In fact, the original subs were done for MTV. The recent re-dubbing though brings back alot of the inflections lost.

Stuff like the Honorifics is another removal that is very common. Some think it is important along with keeping names in original order, but end of day, these changes are small and do not detract from my ability to enjoy the series even though I know they are faulted. Subs will do this to though...

In dubbing, one of the biggest difficulties is scripting the vocabulary to match the speech animation of the show. Often this means using the simpler or different terms. The inflections to the character's personality are the same, and the emotions in a good sub are just as well expressed.

Last part is the more you know of Japanese, the harder it is to actually follow the subtitles. I have an understanding of Japanese, but am by no means fluent. I cannot keep up the faster talking of a native Japanese speech. However, I do catch many key statement words and the biggest problem is that the order of words themselves do not match with how the english translation orders the words. Then there are the terms that really do not translate well and have to be re-phrased just so the sub isn't nonsense. In essence, when I am watching a subbed show, I often have to ignore the actual speech and instead just focus on the tone of what is being said as I read the subs.

@uhohimdead, because with dubbed version I would be able to enjoy the graphics rather than keeping my eye on sub titles all the time. Sometime I think to learn Japanese so I can enjoy the anime but learning a language is rather difficult thing to do.
