Dubs vs Subs: What’s the big deal?

May 8, 2006 at 10:43 am 1 comment

Seriously, what’s the big fucking deal with this issue? It’s like everyone thinks one form is SUPERIOR than others.

People, people, get a fucking grip. Both forms have their own merits and demerits.

Now, while we are all fighting this big imaginary war over which is better, let me tell you something. Both forms have their merits and demerits. It doesn’t matter which is better or which is teh suck. As long as the coprpoations don’t FUCKING BUTCHER IT, it’s all right. And by butchering, look at what 4Kids do to anime. Better still, look at Yu-Gay-Oh and One Piece. The American versions. Then come back to me.

Of course, it isn’t fair to say that subbing is superior. If you have either a shitty typesetter or translator, The sub comes out all shitty. Examples include speedsubbers, and some commrcial anime companies who provide all the frills ad stuff. Pirated stuff counts too, for the subbing quality isn’t all that good.

Personally, I prefer subs to dubs meself, but when it comes down to it, it’s all up to you, the confused consumer. You will miss out on the newer stuff if you stick to dubs, though. And subbing is definitely cheaper, from a business point of view. I think.

Also, think about the poor animatos and voiceactors/actresses who literally slave in an airconditioned room to produce what you are watching. Usually, they re overworked and underpaid. And people diss them. Yes, I’m being serious here.

So whatever your preference, shut the fuck up and enjoy the show. You never know when Japan might CUT OFF THE FLOW.

    Underpaid voice actors exist only in Japan? Jap dubs are 99.9999% good. What people bitch about dubs is the cheesiness that shitty non-Jap dubs sound like.
