I'm new here at crunchy corner, and I am upset that it's only subs, sorry if this offends anyone but I just kind of expected it really, does anyone know why this is?

I can't speak for you but if you watch a lot if stuff on TV, Hulu, Fubimation you get dubs. Dubs are expensive to make and CR is just in the online steaming business. They don't sub-license for TV and games, they don't produce and distribute BD/DVD and they don't have the user base of Netflix and Hulu. So they don't have the money to dub the anime they license. They have been acquiring streaming rights for already dubbed anime though so there is that.

oh thanks, didn't expect a reply so quick

I don't see why there aren't any, it just looks like Crunchyroll is too lazy or doesn't want to spend money getting them. Not that I care. I don't. But should be some for whoever wants them.

Yeah but if CR had dubs ppl wouldn't need the competition.

It would help but there is no guarantee that all the money spent on dubbing will give you the boost in premium subscriptions or overall website visitors for advertisement.

People who watch anime on TV or Hulu or Netflix seem to be the more casual type who will watch it because it's on the service they already have.

Yes It would be lovely to see some series Dubbed (but for most series its most likely to find 1:20 series with good/better dubs)

'Cause the vast majority of english dubs are trash.
Nobody wants to pay the extra fees for sub-par material.

Personally I prefer English subbed anime because it sounds better in Japanese compared to English.

I understand your dismay, but dubs are expensive and Crunchyroll is just a streaming site. It does have some dubs, however: 'Five Centimetres per Second' I heard was dubbed.
