Re: Go Away Dub Watchers: The Proper Anime Thread

See kids, this is why you should hate dubs. The rare times I do watch anime, it's always been subs, simply because if I can't understand what they're saying, I find it hard to be annoyed by it. That said, Asahina's voice in Haruhi Suzumiya was infuriating at all times and for the brief period I wat...

Oh, chivying along is vital, certainly.
