I barely-if-ever watch any anime...And I know the English dubs are often at least decent.
Doesn't mean I won't look down on anyone prefering dubs over subs for pretty much anything, though. The idea "oh, reading a line per 6 seconds is too hard" is just laughable.
And if you've ever seen a movie dubbed in French or German, you'd know what I mean when I say it's just not the same. Many Hollywood celebs have their "fixed" voice actor, and some are just hilariously bad.

I like dubs better because you can concentrate on the screen instead of reading when you should be checking out the cinematography.

Really a matter of experience and habit.
It's true. I grew up reading subtitles and I prefer them. I hate that now every movie in the theaters is dubbed. I swear that there are only three people doing all the voices in all the movies.

I listened to a couple of clips of Funimation's dub of The Devil is a Part-Timer! and the dialogue is just cringeworthy and out of place. It didn't even feel like it was part of the same show I was watching. The sub was so much more enjoyable. Emi having the same VA as High School DxD's Rias certainly helped. :)

I watched the sub of Devil is a Part Timer, and let me tell you, the problems with that show didn't just come from bad dubbing. It's tedious and cringeworthy all on its own. I ran out of patience with it before the end of the first season.

That said, there ARE bad dubs out there. Love Hina, springs to mind. That dub job was *awful.*

Also I DID NOT INTEND FOR THIS TO BE THE "ARGUE WITH GB ABOUT ANIME" THREAD

Oh, well la-di-da, sorry mister Admin and Authority Figure, sir. We'll be sure to keep all threads neatly on topic and serious, just like we've always done in the past.

So, anyway: boobies - totally great or just awesome?

Whatcha gonna do now, smart guy? :p[DOUBLEPOST=1517330828,1517330753][/DOUBLEPOST]Anyway, note to Future Gas Bandit, CONTINUE DOING THIS:

WHEN S9E updates you have to MANUALLY change out the PHP file in /library/s9e, NOT the one in /upload/library/s9e, that one doesn't do shit. THEN run the update routine.
