I’m disappointed with how difficult it is to find dubed series on this site. There are users that prefer a dub format. For example: reading subtitles for an extended amount of time gives me a headache, and it’s my own preference to be able to look away from the screen and keep up with what’s going on.

There are two major problems right now:

1: The dubed animes are not easy to find.

There needs to be some sort of a marker or search option to allow users to find these titles easily. The only way I found some was through a list presented in the FAQ, and I’m not even certain if that’s a complete list. There needs to be some way for users to express their desire for dubs. Maybe some account option for preference, or email out a survey.

2: The selection I found was rather limited.

The shows I found through the FAQ list are primarily shows I’ve already seen, or shows that I have no interest in. I personally have no desire to watch “Beyblade” anything. Sword Art Online is awesome, but I’ve recently just rewatched the series, and I want to watch something new. Couldn’t some of the shorter anime series be included? For example Gundam 08th MS Team is only about 13 episodes long. Even having some movies like Gundam Endless Waltz, or some of the Naruto or Bleach movies could be options. In order to show support for dubs there needs to be some options we want to watch, or the question needs to be presented to users directly.

It can’t be expected that users will show their support for dubs when they can’t even find the dubbed series. Similarly if the options aren’t something they want to watch then they won’t waste their time. I understand resources are limited, but if you want people to show support for dubs then they need to be able to show that support.

I literally just signed up on a free promo account and I’m already looking to cancel because of the lack of dubs. This waiting 24 hours until I can cancel is also really pissing me off. I don’t want to spend my time rewatching a couple series in hopes that one more view MIGHT mean that more dubs will come in the future.

CR is primarily focused on delivering simulcasts as close to the Japanese air date as possible. Several dubbed catalog shows have been added recently; check out the /lineup page.

I'm pleased to see progress, but there's still a need for an easier way to find dubs. Either a Dub category, or marking titles as "Dub" "Sub" "Sub/Dub".

the problem i had/seen was for example was Fate/Zero when they put both Sub and Dub into the same area so it looks like there is 51 episodes but in reality 25=26 sub and 25 dub, 1 extra being the Trailer

An idea how about on the main page if you have a show on Queue it would be on the same space under it Dub when highlighted
