There's two sides to every coin, right? We know there are plenty of people out there that dislike anime dubbing, and that's been very clear for quite some time now. The thing is, how come we never hear anyone talking about how they hate subtitles? This is obviously the preferred method of viewing for most anime fans, but there have to be some people going against the grain out there.
When it comes to traditional cinema in the states, I know that tons of movie-goers out there that don't want anything to do with subtitles. The second they see something where they have to read the majority of content, they want their money back. I'll never forget the negative reaction to subtitles when Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon came out.
I'm guessing that those people don't actually watch anime. At the very least, many of them aren't anime fans. Personally, I know I prefer watching something rather than reading along, simply because I find it easier to take in what I'm watching. I don't mind subtitles, but given a choice I'll take a dub. With that said, I've seen bad dubs before, and they've made me switch over to the subs.
It's time to hear from the minority on this one! I'd love to get some comments from those out there that aren't into subtitles. Let's hear why you like dubs over subs, and feel free to give some examples of the content you enjoy.
