    But for personal preference, I'd much rather anything in its original form. With subtitles, of course, if I am not fluent in the language of said material. So when it comes to anime, I prefer it to be in Japanese, with subtitles or not, it doesn't matter.

    That is true. Certain puns, or jokes are hard to translate, and even if they were to be translated, it wouldn't be understood.

    I think the japanes version is far better in a lot of cases. I watch a couple of episodes of Love Hina once and the dubing and voices were just so bad. I put it on Japanes and read the subtitles. It was far far better

    Oh no, not again.

    I think most of you are biased craphats when you selfishly claim that dubbed anime sucks.

    i prefer the Japanese version rather than the English version because the English version sometimes sucks and the character's names are say it wrong or funny
