I made this post to allow people to talk about what they think about dubbed anime, and weather CR should start adding more dubbed anime.

Please, in this post, talk freely about what you think, and don't hold back, if you want to say it, well, nothing is holding you back, so go ahead and say it.

I tried a dubbed recently funnily enough. Baccano! which is said to be a really good dub.

But I think Im so use to subs now.

I found I had trouble catching everything people said, because it seemed they talked too quick or I didn't understand a word.

Like, with subs, you see exactly what they say.

I guess I read quicker than I listen?

I think the reason why I'm not too fond of dubs is because you can actually tell whether or not its bad acting.

subs are generally always better. not a fan of the typical cheesy american dubs.

I prefer dub over sub 95% of the time. I think a lot of them are really good, it's a shame more people don't give it a chance.

No matter how many times I try listening to a dub vid, their acting sounds just like that, acting. Doesn't feel like the character is actually it's own being at all. There were indeed some decent ones, but just some.
Other than that, there's the puns and references, along with other script changes made. I want to hear things as they were originally intended to.
As for my final reason for disliking it, being just a preference of mine I guess, western female voices aren't cute.

I've watched around 10 or so dubbed Anime, each being a 2-cour or higher. Around 5 of them I watched before I watched subbed Anime, so there's no way I could be biased towards what I was "used to", yet I still didn't like them. :/

I generally enjoy it. I cant say all dubs are bad, as some have really good reception for being better than the subs. I also would like to say that most of us got through anime from dubbed animes. Even if 4kids got me through the "terrible" Mew Mew Power, I still thank them for making me get into the anime world.

Though as for what I watch the most, I say subs. Mostly because of availability at the time of the anime being released. I can't watch a dub if the sub of episode 1 just released. If I liked a certain anime enough that when i want to watch it again and it has dubs now, I will.

i agree.

i would love more things to be dubbed, but I would like them done well. To me it's like watching a play with bad actors. The only reason I can figure why they don't hire actual good, well-known actors for dubbing is because of lack of funds.

I've been watching Rurouni Kenshin here on Crunchy dubbed and really enjoy it. I think the voices are really well done. Have recently started watching Fairy Tail dubbed with my kids and we are all loving it. I watched the first couple episodes here subbed and I think the dub is very good by comparison. Also, I really enjoyed Evangelion which I saw mostly dubbed (a few eps were subbed) and thought they were both good and Shinji is equally whiney and annoying in both Personally, I like both. Sometimes it's just easier to watch the dub, like when I watch with the kids and every one I've seen so far has been very good. I do enjoy subs also though and absolutely loved Kill la Kill, which I don't think would sound quite the same in English. They both have their merits and I really choose depending on the mood I'm in on which to watch if both are available

Up until about 3 years ago I watched dubbed anime exclusively. But I was also not nearly the massive anime fan I am today.

Never again...they just sound terrible. Even titles I started out with dubbed that I absolutely loved like Haruhi and Clannad I can't stomach anymore. In particular they need to stop hiring middle aged women to voice teenagers. STAHP!

The little group of voice actors these companies pull from have ZERO range. Funimation in particular seems to switch between like two or three guys to voice the protagonist in every single series they put out, and they never change up how their characters sound in between.

Sure, I don't speak much Japanese. But at least by watching subbed anime I learn a few phrases here and there. Dubs teach me nothing and sound bad while doing it. It's just no contest anymore.

You are on a sub site, most are goona prefer subbed.

I like both I should say I like American English dub. That Animax Fairy Tail English dub makes the FUNimation one seem like top tier and I don't like the FUNimation dub of Fairy Tail
