I hate dubs05/28/2009
I was in the MAL forums and came across a peculiar thread. The topic creator posed the question of “When Gintama will be dubbed?” so that he can finally start watching it. Someone replied, “Why would you want it to be dubbed? That’s like asking when someone’s going to finish making a Mona Lisa out of dog shit.” I think that sums up this person’s(for obvious reasons) and my disdain for dubbed anime pretty accurately.
It’s funny really, how deep my utter disgust at English dubs can be. If anime existed only in dubbed form, I will most definately stop watching anime all together. Dubs literally render a show completely unwatchable for me. It’s serious business. This strong hatred might be frowned upon by some, but in all honesty, it is not my fault, for I do not wish for blood to burst out of my ears, a wish held by many.
