Funimation does amazing voice acting. Clannad, baka and test and Dance in the Vampire Buns were all done epically

another example? berserk, loved it in Japanese, watched an ep with a friend in English... translations were atrocious. Here's an idea, learn the language if your a true anime enthusiast, plus its just something good to do for added intelligence.

Geez people on this thread. Casting aside the typical trash talking from narrow minded fans who hate on all english dubs and have zero knowledge on the western voice acting industry, if CR were to add more dubs you have no obligation to watch.

It's extremely immature to want others to be denied of their requested option just because you don't want it.

Why are you guys so negative? I don't like dubs either but as long as they also keep the subs available I don't see why anyone should have a problem with putting the dubs on the site, too. It's just more options. You don't have to watch them.

I don't really care about the sub vs dub fan war that goes on, but as a paying member, I don't want to pay for a service I won't use.

Basically since we are paying customers we have every right to speak our opinion about what we want and don't want.

I have seen nothing to indicate that they cost us anything. I have been paying the same annual membership fee since 2008 and there are a lot more dubs available here now.

It takes away money used to inquire new anime for upcoming seasons. I hope this is the sane reasoning people are thinking of when they say, "no."

You aren't the only paying member you know, believe it or not...other people actually like the dubs.

Money doesn't seem like it's the issue with the series-blocking that has been going on. It seems like a game of market positioning to me. But I guess we wouldn't know unless CR told us what was going on with their bargaining process (unlikely).

But it costs CR money to get dubs, and where does their revenue come from to afford such things, memberships and ads.

God no! American voice actors ruin anime voice overs. They have no passion as for them it's just a job. For the Japanese voice actors it's a career and a way of life so they're full of passion.


That's weird, the problem I have with most dubs is that the Americans are so enthusiastic and so cheery, even when something bad is happening that it just annoys me.

The dub for Durarara!! is the absolute worst, apparently nobody thought to tell any of the voice actors that the show was set very prominently in Tokyo, so the excessively American accents stand out like sore thumbs...

Presumably there are people who would pay money to watch dubs, though. There really seems to be a much larger audience for that in the past few years.

Exactly, we ALL have an opinion to whether or not CR should get more dubs.

I don't watch ecchi harems or CGDCT shows. Does that mean that I should say CR shouldn't waste their money on them, even though there are people that like such shows?

They wouldn't be spending money on dubs if no one was watching them. There's obviously an audience for dubs that's generating revenue, even if you aren't a part of that audience.
