i saw a anime post a few minutes ago, i don't know if this topic has been made yet as i haven't made a topic in about 2 years, so in anime do you prefer dubs or Japanese with subs?

myself i like some anime dubbed like dbz, fma, trigun,FLCL, and ECT.

but some i preferred subbed, like detective Conan, high school of the dead, zatch bell/konjiki no gash bell!, angel beats, and ECT

I prefer most of the anime I watch to be subbed. Dubbed feels unnatural. xD

I'm a toss-up. Every anime I've watched has been dubbed...but

Dubbed - Usually things are changed, like how things are said, personality of a character (albeit, usually just slightly), what happens in a story, etc.

Subbed - Such a huge effing distraction having to focus on a certain part of the picture

It really depends, I haven't watched subbed much, but it's annoying having to watch the bottom of the screen. I usually watched dubbed even through they change things often.

in dubbs they usually cut out more of the vulgar language and certain...perverted related things... which i do not approve of ;)

I like subs, because I like to hear the characters talk the way the makers intended them to speak.

I usually choose subs because the dubs commonly have horrible voice acting.

definitely subbed. its a totally different feeling. and when its so different that a whole personality changes its annoying because you dont get the same experience.

i remember watching cardcaptor sakura in hebrew first. i loved it and sakura was like this sassy happy go lucky girl.

then i rewatched it years later in japanese and it was so different. it was like watching a totally different show. the sub is the closest (pretty much identical) to what the artists (yes) want to show so except for when its not available i really see no other reason to watch dubbed animes.

I can't get immersed in the anime when it's subbed. I don't enjoy having to read every single thing they say. It also detracts from the anime if all i'm looking at is words, and not the show.
