PostSubject: Dub or Sub?   5th April 2012, 12:10 pm

I'm not sure if this topic was started before or if this is even in the right section. I was curious to see which people preferred: dub or sub anime? And why?

I personally like the sub more than the dub. When I was introduced to the sub, it was strange at first, but I loved it almost immediately after. I like knowing what the original is saying over the modified English version. Also, I don't feel like the dub did a very good job. x.x I was doing a little bit of comparisons this morning and some of it just didn't match. Maybe if they had done a better job I would like the dub...lol. It's nice though nostalgically for me and sometimes it's a bit funny, but overall, I'm not to big of a fan Razz

What about you guys?

Sub. Now I am not a dub hater. I usually prefer watching dubs over sub because I want to be able to look away from the screen and know what the characters are still saying. It just depends on how well the dub is put together. Back to Sailor Moon. I saw the dub first. I was introduce to it because of Toonami and I loved it dearly. Then in my teenager years I discovered Sailor Moon in Japanese thanks to the Sailor Moon Uncensored website. I was blown away about how different it was from the dub. So now I only watch the dub just for laughs espeically the Dic one because the dialog is so cheesy. XD I will give Dic some credit though. They had good background music and they came up with neat songs. Oh, and I can sing their opening by heart. Also I didn't mind their voice cast.

Sub. See, I only got into Sailor Moon about three and a half years ago, so I never had it in my childhood. Actually, I kind of hate the dub. A lot. (However, I DO NOT dislike people who enjoy the dub because I respect their right to enjoy something that I don't happen to like. I'd never make fun of someone for liking the dub). I think the dub did a pretty horrible job. Now, granted, it WAS the 90s and things were a lot different than they are today. I think the biggest problem was that they tried to package Sailor Moon as a show aimed at CHILDREN, while in Japan it was meant to be for all ages. (Again, it's a cultural thing; Japanese children are exposed to a lot more than North American children are). I have a lot of beefs with the dub but I'll just stop here for now XD

You know what's sad when I watched the last episode of the first season of Sailor Moon as a kid I knew everyone was dieing. Dic didn't fool me! What's really funny the cartoons I watched expose me to things. Hey Arnold is a good example. I mean they had an episode where the character Helga talked about not being noticed by her family. Oh, also I remember watching Powepuff girls and Bubbles wiped off blood of her mouth. Then there were gross shows like Ahh Real Monsters, Ren and Stempy, and Billy and Mandy. Oh and Rugrats had an episode where a character found out how his mother died.

There is an additional thread that examines some of the differences between the Subbed and Dubbed anime here: http://www.thegalaxycauldronforums.com/t153-subbed-to-dubbed-anime-comparison-may-contain-spoilers


I may merge these two topics together.

Hmmm this one's more about preference while the other ones more about comparing differences though Jupiter...

Yah, which is why I am holding off for now. If the topics begin to merge then I will join them. But for now I think they are different enough to stay separated. Smile

Oh well that's the thread i was thinking of. I couldn't remember where it was to save my life. lol!

But yes, i think this is more of an opinion thread. So it can stay separate. I don't really mind. ^^


And now for my opinion!

While I do prefer Sub, I do have a small special place in my heart for the dub. But, really the sub wins in all cases and I rarely watch the dub anymore unless I'm nostalaing for my VHSs. xD

I looked at that thread. I kind of want to post on it though since I spotted something today while making comparisons, though it hasn't been posted on since summer of last year XD

Yeah dub, that has a little place in my heart due to watching Sailor Moon in my childhood. Definitely nostalgia. I feel like though since the dub had to seriously edit certain things, I feel like it's just not as good as the sub. I like the original better. The content and quality is just overall better. Even the voices are better in Japanese! Razz I definitely am not a hater though to those that love/prefer the dub. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion (which I'm curious about). We're all fans either way. Smile Though, as mentioned in the other thread similar to this one, it's like watching two separate shows.
