I prepare Subbed.
How about you?
Subbed **** american voice acting.
Not wanting to watch a foriegn movie because it has subtitles is a BS excuse for being lazy and just ignorent, Used to work at a video store and whenever i would suggest a foriegn film most of my hick customers would look at me as if i just insulted their mother.
Dudded,unless the buzz for the anime and question is big and I can't wait for the dub.
An honestly I think it which one you hear first because in the end whichever one you here becomes the ''default''.' I would go into more detail about this but I'd rather be lazy and use my favorite video on the subject made by the best Anime Zone's Gigguk.
dbz and yu-gi-oh and pokemon and digimon dubbed. they were my first exposure. rest subbed because english voice actors suck.
*cough*Crispen Freeman*cough* Johnny Young Bosh*cough*Liam O'Brien*cough Steve Blum*cough* Wendy Lee*cough* Vic Mignogna*cough*Greg Arryes(if the character is right)*cough* Chris Patton*cough a s*** load of more people.
if i buy the series im watching it dubbed after some time i may see it subb to see how the original sounded like. i have not encountered a dubbed so bad i refused seing it dubbed.GTO came close but when i heard onizuka's voice i simply couldnt go on with the subb and switched to the horrible dubbed were everyone but onizuka voice sucked.
I like YGOTAS and DBZA along with None Piece and the weird Pokemon one where Officer Jenny is a pedophile, but this might just take a spot on number one.
About half an half. As someone said, DBZ ABSOLUTELY must be dubbed. Same with FMA. But a lot of slice of life anime sounds lame dubbed.
Well said and I agree. Cowboy Bebop and Black Lagoon should also only be watched dubbed.
I generally prefer dubs unless it has actively changed the storyline, like in Yu-Gi-Oh.
Both, depends on the anime.
One Piece subbed, DBZ dubbed.
I was looking forward to the One Piece dub when I heard the Funimation one was a hundred times better than the 4Kids.
Then Luffy sounded like Gohan andddddddddddddd fail.
It depends. These days I watch anime set in Japan in Japanese with subtitles. Mostly I watch in dub though, but I'm getting kind of tired of always hearing Americans do the voice acting (I know some of them put a lot of passion into it, like Vic Mignola, but sometimes I just want some variety). Hellsing had some Brittish voice actors in it, which is good because the show is kind of set there. The BBC also did a unique dub of Lum The Invader Girl. I've also been trying to track down animes in languages neither English or Japanese with English subs. I bought the Eureka Seven collection off ebay from Europe and it had not only English and Japanese, but German and French too. It's not everyday you get the chance to watch an anime in German or French. It's hard to track them down though.
.A big question that applies to most anime is, if you just want to read what the say, why don't you just read the manga? Then you can just imagine their voice to sound like whatever you want it to be.
Subbed, if I can. The only anime I watch dubbed is FMA, because Mustang's English voice is cooler and Edward's English voice is less annoying than his Japanese voice.
Same here.The joy for me watching FMA dubbed is great while when I watch subbed FMA I am bored and the voices annoy me.
I typically watch with subtitles not to say that English dubs can't be really good i.e Cowboy Bebop, FMA, and Trigun. The Japanese voices in YuYu Hakusho were unbearable so I'm glad to have watched it with dubs. I'd recommend using dubs when checking out shows with great art so you can pay attention during frenetic action scenes. A lot of bad quality dubs exist. Believe it.
I haven't watched a ton of anime. A lot of what i've watched has actually had very good dubbing (sometimes with bigger name voice actors) and so I've probably watched more dubbed than subbed. But I'm not averse to subbed and have definitely watched subbed films before. I'm hoping to eventually pick up enough Japanese to be ale to watch without worrying about either :)
Ikr that elitist attitude is the worst. I mean its a show, calm down lol. I don't speak jap so I pefer english, but I have had to finsh some shows in the sub and I liked that too. But I never start with a sub. Start with dub then when run out of eps, wait for englsh ones or I try the sub. Both do good jobs.
