Every time I see someone shitting on people for watching dubs my lifespan decreases by 10 years. And this is coming from someone who speaks Japanese, ok

Reasons people might want to watch an anime dubbed:

  • They genuinely enjoy it, which is perfectly fine!
  • They can emotionally connect more easily when dialogue is in their native language, or in the case of comedy anime, comedic impact is often lost somewhat when in Japanese to a non-Japanese speaker
  • Their favorite voice actor is in it, or they just like the voices
  • They find one or more of the Japanese voices unbearable
  • They want to laugh at a poorly done dub
  • They want to support the companies that dub anime so that they see there is a demand for anime in the western market
  • They have difficulty following subs, like MAYBE THEY HAVE A LEARNING DISABILITY THAT AFFECTS THAT WHY DOES NOBODY EVER THINK OF THIS

Yes, some anime dubs are really bad, but there are also some out there that are perfectly good. And either way, there are multiple reasons people might want to watch dubs.

There is nothing wrong with watching anime dubs, and watching a dub does not make someone any less of a fan. You do not get to act like a pretentious prick and shame people for watching dubs just because you want to fuck Aya Hirano or have a bone to pick with Troy Baker or something. Don’t be an ass.

One more point, lots of people have difficulty reading emotion from tone, and a lot of voice tone in Japanese is at least unfamiliar enough to English speakers that they feel like they’re missing out on the intensity of some scenes because they can’t read the tone.

Also a good point!

Also Dub actors work their ASSES off, especially at FUNIMATION. Right now the whole simuldub contract is causing VA to dub a shit ton of shows at once. Some actors have had to take off seasons to rest their voices because they are working so much.

My voice acting teacher is a casting director and VA at funimation (and recently Aaron Dismuke asked her to assistant ADR direct for Nanbaka) and she does a lot of hard work. Not only that but she’s hella talented. I also have some friends that work there. They don’t get paid all that much and they really do put a lot of effort into their work, people have to give them at least some respect for that.

Even if you don’t watch dubs, please be respectful to dubbers and do not attack them. Please.

-A voice actress aspiring to dub anime one day

Yeah, that’s another good point! I have a friend who’s done voice acting work, too, and it’s really impressive and hard work.

I might not like every voice actor personally, but I definitely have a lot of respect for voice actors in general.

I also want to point out that watching and listening to dubs is a lot easier for people that have to multitask while trying to watch a series.

ACTOR WHO HAS WORKED ON SEVERAL ANIME DUBS OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, CHECKING IN!!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS LISTED ALL OF THESE WONDERFUL POINTS. I generally bring up a lot of these points to people IRL who shit on dubs and I’m glad that these points are being spread around! Everyone has their preferences, and you shouldn’t shame someone for preferring dubs over subs or subs over dubs! (Seriously there’s a million better things you could be doing with your life instead of being needlessly rude to people not watching a show the same way you do)

I saw Zootopia last night and as I drove home all I could think about was how the hell the police investigated crime that took place in habitats designed for smaller animals.

Like their smallest recruit literally towers over the citizens of the rodent habitat.  What the fuck is a polar bear going to do if a vole gets murdered?  Forget all of the fine tools needed to dust for prints, does the poor grieving widow vole now have to deal with being homeless because the only way the ZPD could photograph the crime scene was to literally rip her roof off? 

I bet you that’s why the mafia is a literal rat pack and a shrew is the most feared crime boss in town.  Who else is going to protect your gaggle of little adorable hamster children when your businesshamster husband gets caught cooking the books to try and pay off his hamster gambling debt and some guinea pig bookie comes to literally shake your family down for the cash?  

Oh my gods now Mr. Big makes sense.

Why is it that when we’re complaining about the homogeneity of the YA adventure genre, it’s always framed in terms of stories about A Very Special White Girl And Her Mysterious Brooding Boyfriend? I mean, yeah, that’s a thing, but it’s vastly outnumbered by stories about A Very Special White Boy And His Nonthreateningly Quirky Girlfriend. Like, why are we singling out the girl as emblematic of everything that’s wrong with the genre?

On a job application: “What is your preferred name and gender, we value diversity, so be honest.”

Me: 

I don’t know what this means.  I’ve never filled out a form that said that.

they’re asking you to disclose if you’re transgender. legally, they can’t ask or consider someone’s gender in hiring someone, so they get around it by giving you the option of telling them yourself. if you “volunteer” the information, that’s legal.

its like when they try to figure out if you’re poor by asking if you have “reliable transportation,” hoping that ppl will explain that they dont have a car without actually being asked. things like that.

its a scummy thing to do, especially in this case where theyre presenting it like a “diversity” thing.

^^^^ Never answer those questions honestly if you actually want the job.

My managers have personally told people that anyone who puts anything like that outside of just “male or female” gets their application tossed immediately.
Btw if an interviewer asks if you have reliable transportation, don’t say anything but “yes I do” that’s it!!!!! Don’t say another word don’t say you take the bus or walk or bike or get rides or uber don’t say anything!!!!! Just say yes and that is it they cannot require any sort of proof of transportation.

Shit. I didn’t know that about transportation but I'mma start doing it now.
