    1. Which is better:

    b. subbed

    2. When watching the series, does it depend on:

    a. Which series you watched

    3. Why do you think dubbed sucked?

    because they don't show what the subbed anime showed, they cut so much things and change the dialogues >.>

    4. Why do think subbed is great?

    Be Original! that's why ^_^

    5. What's the difference other than the obvious languages when you hear the series in both?

    the voices of course, some of the voice actors aren't good for the character they're dubbing (their voices doesn't match)

    6. Which did you hear first?

    a. dubbed

    7. If you moved from dubbed to subbed, why?

    I actually did not move, I'm watching subbed ever since I realized what is anime...

    8. Do you see a war between the two?

    no

    9. If you were in a war, which side would you pick?

    b. subbed

    10. Why are there major disputes between the two sides when it is so pointless?

    it's not pointless, you know some of the dubbing companies like the horrible 4kids changes the real anime's scenario, they are like making the anime the way they want it to be not the way it was made as, they're really ununderstandable, they have pointless edits and cut the half of the anime, I can't forget what they did to One Piece T_T they made so many haters for the series just because they failed to show the real One Piece...

    1. Which is better:

    b. subbed

    2. When watching the series, does it depend on:

    c. the original Japanese language is better!!!

    d. except for Fruits Basket - it had a good dub and sub!

    3. Why do you think dubbed is great/sucked?

    because the voices are normally screwed up when the dub it.

    4. Why do think subbed is great/sucked?

    when you hear the japanese you get to hear how the director really wanted it to be like

    5. What's the difference other than the obvious languages when you hear the series in both?

    normally the english version is different in the sense a) the voices are different than they should be b) usually in dubs they change a part of the series (such as in Captor Card Sakura they changed a few scenes)

    6. Which did you hear first?

    a. dubbed - if pokemon/digemon/yu-gi-oh!/captor card sakura count

    7. If you moved from dubbed to subbed, why?

    I didn't and never will - when I started watching anime (when i became an anime finatic) I started subbed, but when i was like 5 i watched what i listed about in english cause that's all they had on TV and because i couldn't read the subtitles fast enought :)

    8. Do you see a war between the two?

    nope - not at all!

    9. If you were in a war, which side would you pick?

    b. subbed - by far

    10. Why are there major disputes between the two sides when it is so pointless?

    okay this war thing is kinda weird...

    Star if you watch any of the mainstream anime

    - what does this mean? what's mainstream anime?

    1. Which is better:

    a. dubbed

    b. subbed<--in my opinion yes

    2. When watching the series, does it depend on:

    a. Which series you watched

    b. dubbed is great

    c. the original Japanese language is better!!!<--again in my opinion yes

    d. Other: Your opinion

    e. I don't care, I like it in both

    3. Why do you think dubbed sucked?

    <--well the voice matchups to the characters are horrible, ive only seen maybe but 2 that are fine (i.e, light, etc)

    <--some of the stuff said makes no sense cause they change it so much from the original

    4. Why do think subbed is great?

    <--better voice matchups to the character for the most part there are a few that i just cant stand but its way less then dubs

    <--better flow to the anime

    5. What's the difference other than the obvious languages when you hear the series in both?

    1) Voice matchups are so different in quality

    2) The stuff said is different

    3) dubs take out profanity

    4) subs keeps profanity

    5) subs flow better

    6) dubs butcher the plot and other things

    6. Which did you hear first?

    a. dubbed

    b. subbed<--always

    7. If you moved from dubbed to subbed, why?

    <--nope always been subbed person

    8. Do you see a war between the two?

    <--not really thats just me, i agree with most everyone has there opinion but i guess there are some that like to press there views on others

    9. If you were in a war, which side would you pick?

    a. dubbed

    b. subbed<--of course

    10. Why are there major disputes between the two sides when it is so pointless?

    <--Sigh well i dont think there are many disputes, but reasons could be that people are just looking for a fight so they start one themselves. Or which i do agree with arigato about 4-kids. 4-kids butchered lots of animes, so its understandable there are fights. Im just glad funimation got One peice when they did, who knows what 4-kids would have done more to it. 4-kids should not do anything with anime, they should stick to other things. Another reason is dubs dont stick to the original stuff they divert from it to something idiotic that only kids may like, they change some of the plot and stuff said which would spark fights in people. I dont think its pointless i just dont see myself getting involved with it.

    Star if you watch any of the mainstream anime

    <--Not as much as the non-mainstream lol

  • 1. Which is better:

    b. subbed...definately =D

    2. When watching the series, does it depend on:

    c. the original Japanese language is better!!!

    3. Why do you think dubbed is great/sucked?

    cuz it sounds wierd to me...sometimes the emotions aren't portrayed really well...

    4. Why do think subbed is great/sucked?

    Its the original so it fits perfectly. The emotions are portrayed really well. I've no prob reading the subs cuz i've been reading it since i became a real anime freak... =P

    kinda used to it already.

    5. What's the difference other than the obvious languages when you hear the series in both?

    hmm...emotions...

    6. Which did you hear first?

    a. dubbed...card captor sakura when i was really young.

    7. If you moved from dubbed to subbed, why?

    cuz it sounds way better in my opinion, and emotions...again

    8. Do you see a war between the two?

    nope...not aware of it.

    9. If you were in a war, which side would you pick?

    b. subbed.. ^_~

    10. Why are there major disputes between the two sides when it is so pointless?

    Cuz ppl don't see that its not worth it getting involved in such a dispute...? I mean i don't see the point in arguing because of such a small matter. Everyone has their own opinions and watching anime is just something we do for leisure. Why bother bout how other ppl like to watch it? It doesn't have anything to do with you. So why make things so difficult? As u mentioned, its so pointless...

    I can deal with both. Those weaboos can learn the language and watch it without the sub if that is the problem. And anyway, I think subs are better for people learning the language because they can get used to the dialect and the way they talk (even though half the time, the subs are off) and also help you learn to read faster and take things in better. Really, the subs are more of a learning experience and the dubs are enjoyable. The dubs are gonna be different from the original, people gotta deal with that, but like you said, there wouldn't be half as many people watching anime if it weren't for dubs. Really, it's Pokemon and Yu Gi Oh and Naruto and Hamtaro that made kids watch anime early on. When I was little, I can clearly remember saying something like "Oh, I love 'Japanamation'" and I probably remember it because I made a fool of myself around some real anime fans. Now, I'm a real anime fan.... I got off topic, anyway dubs and subs should be at peace. Sometimes I prefer dubs, sometimes subs. Can't we all get along?
