Subbed, always subbed! There is only one Anime that I will watch dubbed and that is Revolutionary Girl Utena.

i watch dubbed unless there isn't a dubbed version just because it is hard for me to pay enough attention to read subtitles

Hi.

I don't mind either option so I can't vote :(

As long as movie is good I don't care if it's dubbed or subbed . :)

I prefer dubbed anime, I don't mind subtitles on a live action film but orefer dubbed on anime cos of my eyesight the subtitles can merge with the animation and it can be hard to keep track of.

To be honest I like both, but more often than not after watching something a handful of times as subbed I'll want to watch dubbed so I can do things at the same time and understand what is being said.

This being said, I can watch loads of anime in Japanese and know what is being said because I've watched them so many times. Good examples being Nana and Elfen Lied. xD

^ OMFG. Accurate.

Tbh I've watched some dubbed anime with my flatmates(Death Note, Naruto Shippuden, and Fairy Tail) and it wasn't that bad(I think dubs work better with shounen than other kinds of anime). I do however prefer subbed because for one, I can understand Japanese(like 75% of what's being said), and there are some subtle differences between the translation and the original that you can't really tell unless you watch the subbed version.



If I only could
make a deal with God.

^ I feel that.

Actually I don't mind the Cowboy Bebop dub, probably because it seems sort of western anyway? Things like Dragonball Z always have a special place in my heart for their terrible dubs because it's what I grew up on. Also the original 80s Akira dub because it's what I watched first, although I prefer the Japanese by far now. Some of the studio Ghibli dubs aren't bad but when you're hiring Christian Bale and Liam Neeson they're not really gonna be are they :P

I don't watch nearly so much anime as I used to, but I'd still always go with subbed.



And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.


There she was. Gone.

I look for dubs by default but I watch lot of things while they're airing so sub is the only option. If a specific dub is bad I'll switch to the sub and if both are very good I'll watch both eg steins gate.

Depends on screen size. Subs on a smalll screen take focus from action. On a big screen I can read subs and watch animation at same time without over-focusing on subs. The smaller the screen the more it seems like reading vs watching
