The ideas of that long time fan debate of either subbed anime being better than dubbed anime or vise versa is one that gets argued a lot. However there are several sides and people have their preferences. Despite this there is a way to look at both sides of a subbed perceptive and a dubbed perceptive equally giving the positives and negatives of both.
While it is true that people may have a one sided view of the subject matter it is best to still go in with an open mind and willing to look at both sides of the story instead of just what is preferred. We are all fans of the same subject material after all.
There will always be anime series that are better in dubbed over subbed. There will always be anime series that are better in subbed than dubbed. Each have their own side that has a say in the medium as a whole. Dub can be more for introducing while sub can be more for the fans who want to see the newer anime before they get a dub or series that might never get a dub. Both sides are discussed in an equal way to promote each other.
A good article with a nice balanced view. For me, whether I rpefer sub or dub varies between series. For example, I prefer the dub for Wolf's Rain, but prefer the subbed version of D-Frag! – mattdoylemedia7 years ago
I think it's more a matter of personal preference. "There will always be anime series that are better in dubbed over subbed. There will always be anime series that are better in subbed than dubbed" seems like too conciliatory of a comment. Some people don't like reading subs, some people don't like hearing the cheap voice acting that gets put on most anime. Nothing says that a new watcher will prefer dubs, for example. I think part of the problem is that many native english speakers haven't had the experience of watching all sorts of movies subbed, as a matter of fact, because most big productions are in english and you don't speak the language. – JimEis6 years ago
