Yeah... No... I've been following this issue for a while now. And it seems pretty solid Netflix has given up on licensing anime, in trade for bad American cartoons that can't even be considered "cult favorites that canceled before their time".

Not counting stuff like reboot (which near its end, I began enjoying) just a shot in the dark example, the Voltron remake. I'd have to turn on Netflix and go through the library to give a clear example. Which I don't want to do since I'm still a bit pissed over killing all the Slayers series.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I'd say maybe the demand for anime is more along the lines of a "cult" following. But, they have so many random movies that I can't imagine would have a bigger fan base over many anime programs. Popular or underground.

I think Netflix fails to see the demand is allot stronger than they think it is. This might be partially because anime fans do tend to be picky (sub vs dub to be direct,) and very cautious of anime host, to which Netflix really isn't doing itself any favors with the recent cuts.

That, or their main anime host Funimation, vice gripped Netflix's balls one too many times. Either way, the fans are losing, and are not happy, just wish they'd be more vocal about it.

If you can physically endure Subs (not an insult, I literally can't watch subbed media after a period of time) you could try Hulu. Their library is much bigger than Netflix. The downside aside from no dubs is they cut off mid series. And I don't mean "oh, this part hasn't been released yet/needs a selling period before we can upload it" I mean "you get this amount of episodes, and then you're cut off." Tenchi Universe, for example, stops right at the first episode of the "Dream World" arc.

I heard about CrunchyRoll, but my info on that is super vague, so assuming it's 99% sub isn't out of ballpark to me. Also, probably the least accessible on host machines (ps3 Wii Roku Blu-Ray players etc) so if that's how you watch, you're SOL.

There may be another monthly service, I saw an add on another site, but didn't click on it. Said it was majority dubbed, but I lack information.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Could be something with Funimation that went south which lead to the downgrade or lack of adding more. Solid food for thought.

I can't expect the margin between fans wanting subs over dubs being THAT high. I know some like to watch subtitles with the original dialogue (obviously Japanese for the majority) in tact, but that's the minority I'd imagine. Dubbed shows, regardless if the best or not, seems to be common place for enough fans to get their fix. Or even tolerate to want to have via Netflix to watch.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Honestly, I think the margin depends on the conversation's when, and where. Ive had some people here kinda make light jokes at the expense of my preference of dubbing, and the lack of finding said dubbing. But compared to some places where saying you prefer dubbing was a blacklisting offense here is nowhere near as bad. There were some stories friends told me about anime convention incidents that makes me shudder.

Veering off the access to anime "legally" and the dub vs sub wars subjects a bit. Thinking about looking up "Is This a Zombie" and " [c] " both look interesting. And it's been a while since I seen a decent harem comedy so I'm definitely going to see about "Is This a Zombie"

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I didnt really enjoy Naruto 612. Yeah it showed amazing teamwork but man did it go by fast. 613 seems to be where the action will take place.
