Sub Vs Dub which do you like

This is just cause i like to hear what people watch sub or dub and why they like it that way.I like dub because I don't like to read my anime and its hard to watch sometimes will you looking at the subtitles at the bottom.

So what do you like and why

Edit: The opinions expressed in this thread are not necessarily the opinions of the company "91.8 The Fan" and its owners. Any discussion of dubbed anime is presumed to be legally viewed by means of either streaming through various streaming sites, such as Hulu, Joost, or YouTube. Any mention of anime watched via means of illegal activities is not condones, nor supported by 91.8 The Fan or its owners.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

I know I am more of a sub person just because I dont like the restrictions of language and certain scenes when watching it on TV. You can usually get a uncut version when you buy the DVDs and that will make up for it but my over all thing for watching sub over dub is just because I like the japanese voice overs better then the English ones. The closer you can get to the original idea and direction, the better it is.

I agree. I usually prefer subs as well, but there have been series where I prefer the dub, such as Code Geass. The Gurren Lagann dub wasn't bad either.

Indeed. I like the dub of Death Note and Please Teacher.

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.

I prefer dubs, but I will watch subs. I just like hearing the English voices.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

There are a lot of good dubs and equally bad dubs, there are a few Japanese dubs that I didn't like and there were some that I did like. But if I had to choose, I would have to go with dubs because they work just as hard as the Japanese voice actors to make it work.

Dubs. Like to watch not read. Though, I'll do subs if I HAVE to see it. Like Baccano! (Whose dub is pretty badass).

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

It depends, it usually depends on what I watch first. I enjoy subs a good deal of the time, but I love hearing my favorite voice actors in America. So it more or less is the mood I'm in.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

I like both about the same, Sometimes i prefer the Japanese with Subs because i like the voices better than dub or it isn't available in Dub.
(Subs don't bother me, i can read fast and still take everything in so i have no big problem)

Dubs are good too because you can sit back and relax a little bit more since you don't have too keep closing in to read subs and i like hearing my favorite Voice Actors! ^^

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

The Voice Actors have gotten far far better and many series are getting very good with the voice acting. Detective Conan's dub and Full Metal Alchemist are both. "Slam Dunks." when it comes to the cast.

I like subs, but if the dub is great, like those two mentioned above. I'll prefer the dub.

This. Unfortunately, I haven't really seen a lot of dubs lately, but the ones I am seeing are better than I remembered. In my day, the only dubs I preferred over subs were Golden Boy, Fushigi Yuugi, and Bebop was a tie. There were a number of good dubs, but they were close to the quality of the Japanese dub, and like someone else mentioned, I preferred getting closer to what the original intent was. Back then my ranking system would be sub > manga > dub.

But now the quality of dubbing is much higher, so it's manga > sub = dub.

Well I like both, but I prefer subs, not because they're better, but because it's the original.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

Both, because I'm not a nitpicky son-of-a.

And no, I don't prefer either one over the other. I couldn't care less where the animation came from, I mean, I didn't watch Code Lyoko in French (yes, I watched that).

Yay I remember those days. Indeed, I never watched that series in French either (though I did check out some clips from unaired stuff that were in French).

I too also like the Fullmetal Alchemist dub but my problem lies in how they didn't leave the openings alone on TV. I really like the first opening of FMA. I like them all and the second one is good too but I just wanted them to have all the openings like they were supposed to be shown.

I presumed that they couldn't acquire the rights to the first and third opening songs, so they were forced to use the second and forth. But, I enjoyed those openings anyway. xP

wow I'm glad to see that everyone is nice about it I was worried that people might go over bored and be like "subs are the best dubs suck ROAR!!!" but its good to see that everyone is cool with both subs and dubs and not closed minded and think only the on is good and the other is crap.

Re: Sub Vs Dub which do you like

Haha, I like a lot of older dubs actually because I think there's a lot of heart in them such as the 3X3 Eyes or Golden Boy ones. For both they just seemed to work, and felt naturally. Ah! My Goddess the OVA had a good classic dub I've always adored, specifically since the two main characters were actually married. That's chemistry you can't make up.
