i can understand why some people prefer dub, not to many people want to read through all the text for fear they might miss somthing. but for the most part Japanese actors are better than other langauges. i esp can't stand watching anime that takes place IN Nihon, and have it be in english. ie. inuyasha, death note, champoo, ect. it all depends what kind a mood i'm in, if i'm lazy i'll listen to dubb. but usually i like to listen to jap. mainly because the langauge flows really smoothly, unlike chinease or vietnamese. also back in the olden days, why was subb more pricy then dubb? i figure the NA distributer would have to pay their actors more.
