Mai Series Sub or Dub?

Post by depression76 on Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:01 pm

A classical questions amongst all of us non-Japanese speakers xD Which one do you prefer?

Mai Series in Subtitles or Dubbed?
I myself prefer the subtitles over dub anytime at all. For one, I'm a seiyuu otaku, which means I pay as much attention to the actress/actors voicing them as I do to the anime itself, and second, there are things that you can only get from the original script itself that couldn't be transferred to the dub version thanks to the language barrier. And so, sub over dub for me.

Now that you know my choice, let me know of yours. Sub or Dub? >83

KEEP THE DUB AWAY FROM ME PLEASE DX

Ahem, I prefer the sub, by far XD I prefer subs in general, and not just for anime. I would rather watch something in it's original language, since a lot of dubs tend to sound awkward.

Plus...the dub voices for Shizuru and Natsuki make me want to cry in a corner ;_;

Not to say that all dubs are bad mind, I'm sure there are some that are decent, and maybe even a few that some prefer over the original. Personal preference for the Mai series though is the subbed version :3

SUB ALL THE WAY.
I love the japanese voices. It always amazes me how they can change their voices everytime to fit the character. Specially if are seiyuus you are familiar with, like Chiba Saeko or Shindou Naomi. :3

......SUB for sure! I cringe when I hear Shizuru's dubbed voice.

Even though it's Subbed > Dubbed for me, I can still watch anime in its English Dub Formality. It really depends on time of the day when I go to watch anime. If it's later in the evening, I'm more likely to want watch it in English, because reading the Subtitles would induce sleepiness an tiredness, which means I wouldn't get to watch as much as I'd normally like. If it's after 6-5pm, I'm more than likely gonna go with its English Dub. But my preference, especially during earlier hours of the day, is Japanese Sub anime, because I like the audio better (or voices) and sometimes I just feel like reading while watching my anime.

When it comes to how I learn... I use to be more visually learned than auditory-learned. Meaning, I would usually have to read subtitles to digest anime more than I would just by listening to it. Over time, I watched so much from both formats, that I really don't have an overly obvious preference when it comes to what format I go with.

Again, it really just goes down to what hour of the day or night I'm watching anime at!
