    Re: Subbed or Dubbed: Which Do You Prefer?

    I think it can depend on the genre. I can easily say that comedies are one hell of a lot funnier in one's native language than through subtitles. Stuff like Comic Party and Azumanga Daioh are good examples of this to me. Plus, a lot of the jokes are redone in a way that you can understand without having to know the specific culture. Japanese puns aren't going to be funny if you don't understand the language, so I appreciate the efforts to reword them in English to try to capture that same comedy. (Reading the School Rumble manga extras at the back has given me an interesting insight into the process, and I'm always glad for the changes that were made).

    With other genres that aren't quite so dependant on a certain understanding of culture or knowledge, I suppose I probably prefer subs the majority of the time.

    Re: Subbed or Dubbed: Which Do You Prefer?

    It all comes down to how tired I am. I'm more likely to watch a dubbed anime when I'm exhausted then when I'm well rested.

    If a dub is available, I will try and give it a chance before I switch language tracks, and even if I'm watching a dub, I keep the subtitles on so i can critique the dub.

    But honestly, I don't really care, I'll watch either or. I really don't get all the stink people cause over this topic.

    Re: Subbed or Dubbed: Which Do You Prefer?

    I don't really care either, for me it depends what I start watching it in. If I start watching it in dub, then I usually continue watching it in dub ( I get so used to the characters and how the sound that it just sounds weird if I watch it in sub) and it's the same if I start watching it in sub..

    So I'm with aceman, don't really care about, nor do I see what all the fuss is about..

    Re: Subbed or Dubbed: Which Do You Prefer?

    I prefer dubbed when I watch anime, this is because I like to do more than one thing at all times, unless I am sleeping, then I do just that, I am a multitasker so dubbed verisons of anime is the best option so I am not concentrating on just one thing.

    Your totally correct, thanks for supporting this viewpoint. comedy, yes, exactly the type that needs special attention. I can tolerate a mecca based anime subbed if its really action packed and the art style is cool. (exception: gundam seed destiny''blah,blah, Orb, blah,blah ect.) I totally appreciate honest input, I think it turned the topic on this thread the other direction(based on recent comments)

    lol lucky you i am trying to learn jap for the same reason. the japanese anime is so much better they block nothing out the voices move with the flow of the char's. And their language isn't edited so it's pure raw anime your watching unlike the english version's that are heavly editited and often i see their voice dont move with their mouth.
