    I just find dubs really annoying. The only way I can watch anime is with English subtitles.

    +1 for subs, the majority of dubs are rubbish, they sound like the dubbers just grabbed a mob of people off the street and got them to read the lines. There are some exceptions of course. However I know some people who simply can't read fast or well enough to keep up with subtitles and I'm glad there are subbed versions for their sake.

    I used to primarily watch subs because back in the 90's a lot of dubs were pretty terrible (see any Manga UK dub), but dubbing really has improved since then. Now there are dub actors who can actually act, directors who know how to direct, and script writers who know what to translate accurately and what to change slightly so the dialogue sounds natural in English (if the actors just went by the sub script they'd sound really stupid).

    Ghost in the Shell SAC is an example of a great dub - Mary McGlynn sounds very sexy as the Major (fun fact: she sung the Silent Hill songs ), and as cool as Akio Otsuka is, Richard Epcar is the definitive voice of Batou for me.

    I usually watch subs because I'm so accustomed to it now. And like Blairzerker mentioned, most of the dubs from the 90s were some of the most horrific things ever created.

    I'm in the subtitles group!

    (Of course - I'm trying to learn the language, so listening to the Japanese does help a lot.)
