I cant keep my attention on important things what makes you think Im able to keep it on subs lol. I dont really mind either way but When the kitty walks by or somthing shiny comes into view its nice to not have to rewind to figure out what happened.... Unless your dealing with Gunter in Kyo kara cause he is the gayest bastard son of sephy and Pegasus you will ever see.

Weelll...I don't mind dubs, as long as they're done decently (4kids, GTFO). But I think I'd prefer subs because...a lot of original interesting bits that got cut out are left in and...they're usually easier to come by than dvds of a dub, if you know what I mean. *shiftyshiftytorrentsshiftyshifty*

I don't mind either but I prefer "dubbed in my language" because in dubbing the language they also dub the emotion. In other words, emotions conveyed in spoken japanese are difficult to convey in written english. For basic emotions its easy but subtle emotions like "playing coy," "being smitten," and "anxiety."

I don't mind either, but I like subs better because they come out quicker

Don't really care but I definatly prefer dubs cuz I'm always working on something else and I mostly find myself listening to it rather than watching.

I'm more of a sub person myself. I prefer to hear their own voices, and sometimes the dubvoices are terrible. XD;

It depends on both the voice quality and which form I've seen first, along with availability. Unless either a: the voice acting sucks really bad, and/or b: I've started it in Japanese, I'd prefer it to watch in english, otherwise I could spend ten extra minutes trying to catch what someone said. Then again, subs have the advantage of not being censored; you get the actual feel of the show that the artist wanted to get across.

I'll watch either, but if dub is available I'll watch them first since I sometimes don't catch the subs on the sub anime.

I'll watch either. But I'm really picky for some reason. If I've watched an Anime Raw or with Subs first...I won't care for the Dub so much.

I'm happy to watch anime in either subs or dubs, but I prefer it to be dubbed because I often find my attention wanders if I'm watching it on the TV and I can't keep my eyes on the screen 100% of the time to read the subs. (I also hate missing things)

Having said that, I'm more that happy to watch a sub on the computer, because generally when I'm at the comp, I have no distractions (i.e the desire to draw) so I don't miss anything!
