actually no, the line about "Well you can always watch the sub because everyone knows it's always better in the original Japane... oh wait"

you sure? cause I really liked mighty morphin mahou shoujos.. and putting guns on everything "because why the fuck not?".. and.. well, pretty much everything else.

but I do agree. as someone who grew up watching dubs and never really starting to watch subtitled anime until about 10 years ago, I really couldn't care less if I watch it dub or sub. sometimes I just don't feel like reading subs, so I'll watch a dub. I usually watch subs, though, because that's what's mostly available online. well, without delving into the dark side. and I try to don my eye patch as little as possible.

When I mute regular TV shows and the CCaps come up . . . I can't help it, I have to read them.....



Otherwise I don't really have a problem...
I do find it interesting to watch both subbed and dubbed versions at the same time to see what got changed....

Oh definitely the whole review was worth a good laugh. but the comment and the tone of voice when he get's to the line about dubs and subs just seemed so very and amusingly relevant to the dubs/subs argument.

I'm pretty much as you describe yourself. No problem with dubs, tend to watch more subs because they are more common for legal streaming but i have no particular attachment to either.

That's said I'm like the op and find anime difficult to watch any time the voices get changed on me. (including switching between dubs and subs)

I actually dont mind the ADR version myself as long as the voice acting is well done and especially when they are able to voice match the Japanese seiyuu or at least the voice match the character.

I am also a fan of most of the american/canadian voice actors and know or met a lot of them ...which makes it easier for me to watch the english versions.VAs like Crispin and Yuri and Erik, Mary ,Ezra. knows me. So its fun listening to their work since I am a trained voice actor as well ... minus the jobs lol.

But I have the same respect and admiration towards the Japanese seiyuu and admire most of their works. Meeting them is my goal every convention LOL

and So I have no problem switching from japanese and the dub version at all. For example Space Dandy, I enjoyed the ADR version since it really works out very well and much easier to follw that wacky space anime.

Whatever version you watch first is generally the one you will prefer. I dont even watch dubs that often, but if i do decide to watch a dub I stick to the dub, and usually end up liking it.

For example, I watched Soul Eater on netflix english dubbed, and when i tried to rewatch it in subbed it felt weird, even though if i had watched sub first the dub would have probably annoyed me.


But ill make exceptions for amazing dubs like Baccano! where even though i watched the sub first, the dub is great because they have actual accents from the location the anime is set in, and actually fits better than if they were speaking Japanese

it's a little hard to switch, which is pretty much the only reason I haven't watched Haganai NEXT yet. thankfully that will be rectified soon.

Gigguk is love. Gigguk is life.


I always link people to his Big 3 video when they try to tell me that Naruto/Bleach/OP is "THE BEST ANIME OF ALLL TIME AND THEY SHIT ON EVERYTHING ELSE"

I like to watch both. Especially for action heavy series. With the subbed I get the more accurate translation. With the dubbed I can focus on the animation and not split my attention. As to transitioning, there have been times where I wish I could choose the performance for specific characters rather than the entire cast. Sometimes I feel the English is better. Other the Japanese.

I dunno what you're talking about. Naruto in Japanese is so much better compared to the dub. And I am not a dub hater, Naruto just tends to be that one exception anime

But yes, I have a hard time switching, especially if it's a Funimation dub. Plus I hate how almost every girl character in Japanese subtitles sounds like they're 10 year old. I mean seriously, do they take helium or something
