So will there be any kind of attempt to get more dubbed anime in the future for crunchyroll? I dropped my Hulu account because i was tired of the lack of dubbed anime so i figured an English/anime based website would have more...I was sorely mistaken. Hulu had 5x the amount and they were all popular series.I'd rather not close this account but there really isnt a point in having it if there wont be any dubbed anime coming to this site and its app.

It's unlikely, as CR's focus is on simulcasting new series as their air in Japan, and there simply isn't enough time to produce a dub when you're trying to get a show online an hour after the Japanese broadcast.

You may want to look into FUNimation or The Anime Network, as both are or have relationships with North American localization companies that regularly produce dubs.

For the record, this thread tracks what shows have an English dub on CR, or were originally produced in English.
