Alright, so I recently started watching anime, and I really like everything about it. The art style, personality, fight scenes, suspense, all that. I just finished watching the first season of Sword Art Online on Netflix and I wanted to see what else is out there. I subscribed to Crunchyroll because, for one, Crunchyroll is supposed to have the largest lineup of anime. I also wanted a professional service, where the great people who make these shows can get my support and I can get good resolution.

But I didn't realize that subbed anime was popular in the US anime community. After subscribing to Crunchyroll, I finally found out that none of the shows are dubbed in English. I'm sure a lot of people are okay with the subtitles, but I'm just not very interested in it.

I don't mean any disrespect to the people at Crunchyroll. I appreciate everything they're doing. It's just that it's not for me.

I'm sorry to ask this of you guys, but is there a premium anime service like Crunchyroll, but where most shows are dubbed in English? It's just that there are hundreds of other sites and I'm not sure which to pick. Thanks

If you're in the US/Canada (which I believe you likely are), than I would suggest FUNimation.

I've heard that from a couple of people, but funimation just doesn't look as sleek and organized as crunchyroll : / it's also missing a lot of shows like naruto and sword art. Man I wish it was easier to find these shows.

The problem is so many great shows NEVER get dubbed. Try Hulu or Netflix for the ones that are.BTW, I can't stand dubbed(except for Fullmetal Alchemist and a couple others).

Actually CR does have a few shows dubbed ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-788825/crs-english-dubbed-anime ) but if they are not to your liking you can try Anime Network ( http://www.theanimenetwork.com/ ) they have dubbed shows as well as subtitles it just depends on the show you want. And you might need a subscription.

The FUNi website has improved greatly in the last year or so, and most of their apps are very easy to use/navigate.

Naruto and SAO are licensed by two different companies (Viz and Aniplex USA), and both make most of their profits from sales of physical product (as does FUNimation), so it's hard to get those on one of their competitors' streaming service.

Hulu has episodes for both Naruto and Shippuden, but all the SAO episodes are subbed. To watch it dubbed legally, it would be easiest to purchase the DVD/BDs, or hope the show gets reruns on Toonami.
