Probably added in to replace "damn it" or "damn you".

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

Nope. I`ve seen them say that as well. I actually saw a dubbed naruto episode where they let that slip through. I think it was during the Sannin Fight where Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Tsunade all brought their beasts out while Naruto fought Kabuto, and when Kabuto dodged the rasengan and used his med-jutsu on Narutos hip, naruto actually said "damn it", in the dubbed anime. I had that episode recorded *but since lost the tape* and I replayed that scene over and over to make sure I was hearing right, and sure enough, with 5 replays, I heard him curse. Go figure.

TAKE THAT FCC! YOU FAIL AT LIFE!

In my head I always use the voice of the character when I'm reading subtitles, novels or comics. It's only if I have no idea what a voice sounds like that I use my own, and even then my voice in my head is very different from my real voice.

I'm not saying that no ones brain works the way you describe, I'm just saying that not everyone's does.

Yes, but most people do work like that. Especially when the voice in question is attached to another language.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

I'm off an on about dubbing and subbing, I prefer the dubbing for Death Note, although I dislike the Pokemon dub.

I have no sense of favoritism

And you know what, you don't need a favorite. Just make a decision when the time comes. If you think the dub is bad, then watch the sub. If you like the dub then watch that. No real reason to have a set belief in this situation.

Exactly, or else you'll be labelled as biased by your peers.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

It all depends on the anime.

I prefer FMA's Dub. also naruto's dub isn't all that awful.
But some anime are MEANT to be watched dubbed. like Lucky Star.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

Prefer sub as long as I don't have to speed-read. Some of these release sub captions are only visible for a milli-second. I have to freeze the frame to stay "caught up". Also, Sub proves to all my past deceased or dying school instructors (since I am an old dude) that their classroom lessons re the language didn't go to waste or in vain. Dub seems to change the nuance or tenor of the scene. Sometimes this technique is helpful in my comprehension if there is a point or concept I might have missed watching the sub alternative.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

Watching a show like Bobobo-bo bo-bobo was very weird and you can't really get the full effect of it when it is dubbed but watching it subbed doesnt really help much either. Some jokes and sayins just dont transfer over very well and it's a thing that you just have to be deep into the culture to get.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

A lot of times for me, it depends on the initial point of contact. I saw Cowboy Bebop fansubbed years before I saw an episode of the English translation and even though the dub is pretty much amazing, I still tend to watch the subs for that one. The only things that will change this rule, I've noticed, are quality of a sub/dub. If either version is really horrible, I'll watch the other. And if I find that one is more awesome than the one I'm used to, I'll be able to watch both pretty easily.

I definitely agree with that, though there are some instances where I like the dub just fine. It mostly rests on the quality of the dub. Personally, I liked the Elfen Lied, Solty Rei, Inuyasha, Code Geass, Full Metal Alchemist, and Death Note dubs well enough that I'm fine watching either the subbed or dubbed versions, but for the most part I prefer subbed.

Indeed, most of those dubs and I am just fine with. I really have no specifics with it though I usually watch a sub of an anime first then watch the dub of it on TV or somewhere else then compare from there.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

For me I do only subs.. While dubs have been improving I feel like the sub gets me closer to what the original creators, animators and VA's want me to experience. With that in mind I have a fairly big pet peeve for when the American industry feels the need for whatever reason to remove culture references or "Americanize" an anime.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

If the dub is good, I prefer the dub but I can watch both. For example FMA has a bad Japanese cast but it's American cast was great. Whereas a meh dub like Tower of Druaga I prefer subbed.

But they haven't "Americanized" an anime for around...7 to 8 years?
