    Why ?? Your not getting the full experience. I was legit shocked that dubbed anime is in such high demand these days. Maybe because i started watching anime when there was NO dubbed anime back in the 2000s so i dont understand why anybody would want to watch it in that manner.

    Do you watch dubbed anime ? If so why are you doing that to yourself ? Its horrible, so cringy.

    Dubbed is literally torturing yourself.
    You will never find any other voice actors than the original who can give you 110% emotion especially during emotional scenes so i feel sorry for them.
    Yeah its cringy af lmao they cant even pronounce the names right :angryr:

    I guess some people are just lazy to read?
    Smh even I hate reading but never again dub
    Or they cant pay attention to both subs and animation? Again smh

    Guilty.

    Honesty I get so lazy and I just don't have any time to sit there and read.

    I tend to do work and let it play in the background.

    That being said, the really good ones or ones I know have bad dubs I take the time to watch. That includes any news ones where I can't wait.

    Some I've gone too far in and don't like the dub version because I got used to the Japanese one. Bleach ~ why you end?

    Otherwise any dub versions I do research first before I watch.

    some are cringy yeah but some dubs are okay
    im trilingual, i dont have to stick to just one language. if i dont like certain dubs i have other options.
    and it has its advantages, you dont miss out body language because you dont have to focus your attention on some letters at the bottom of the screen

    I do watch subs most of the time, but if the dub is "rlly good" I'd chose the dub bcoz I don't wanna keep reading text on my screen lmao. What's the point I came here to watch the anime not read, I could read a manga instead. But if there's no good dub, as in most cases I go with subs.

    Reading is part of the experience, and watching movies that are in their native tongue is a lot more authentic and interesting then hearing an american tell the story from my point of view ofc. It would be like watching a k-drama or show dubbed in english so odd.

    I don't watch dubbed most of the time. However from what I have heard from those that do they don't like or have problem reading subtitles. They might not be used to it especially in countries that tend to dub everything (my own just dubs stuff for children) and/or they just find them distracting. I don't have such issues myself. What becomes to quality, I find sub 90% of time better than dub, however sometimes dub can be as good (Madoka Magica) or rare cases even better (Dragon Ball).

    When I was a little kid, I watched animes with dub, I grew up with dubbed animes .. one reason was that there weren't any computers/anime sites at that time and another reason was, that I could speak or understand other languages then German and Vietnamese at that time :)
    But nowadays I don't watch dubbed animes, because most of them have got bad translations and bad dubbing actors XD
    (Generally I think, that the German dubs in the past were better than nowadays ^^')

    I think its mostly because people are too lazy to read subtitles

    I mostly watch anime in subs but I might check out the the dub version since I'm curious.There actually are some good dubs .

    i watch dubbed anime, i watched it dubbed in cantonese. like honestly, sometime i just dont wanna read subs.
    yeah of course japanese voice actors/actresses are top notch and are amazing but it doesn't necessary mean that other voice actors/actresses beside japanese ones are shit.
    sometimes i watch dub because i like to see how japanese jokes are adapted into cantonese, like to see how they use cantonese slang to express a japanese joke, sometime it works and sometimes it doesnt work

    i find the dub terrible and emotionless and the only circumstance where i find it understandable that someone is watching dub, is if they are doing something else at the same time and vaguely following it out

    There absolutely were anime dubs in 2000, haha.
    True, usually the dubs are much worse. But in some cases the dubs can be fantastic: Cowboy Bebop for example. I've heard from some of my Japanese International student friends at Uni that even in Japan a lot of people prefer the English dub of Cowboy Bebop more, because the voice actors are so good, and the language "seemed to fit the tone of the show more".
    Another example - the newest Yu-Gi-Oh movie dub also went over very well. The VAs have been playing those characters for so long that they've gotten quite good at it.
    I just prefer not to be a purist/closeminded about it. 99% of the time I watch the sub, for the synching especially. But I try not to judge how other people prefer to consume their media. It's made for entertainment after all, and who am I to say what people should be more entertained by.

    Back in the 2000 there were dubbs on television however they were not as readily available as they are now. Not every single show was dubbed like it is now.
