So why exactly are dubs so taboo in the anime crowd?
>>
Because they're usually bad, if they were good nobody would be bothered by them.

More specifically, /a/ could never tell if a Japanese voice actor was bad because they aren't familiar with the language

Because they usually suck. Though, the Japanese ones could suck dick too, we just can't notice. If a dub is good, I MIGHT watch it dubbed. Depends on the mood.

>>101033045
Everyone can interpret emotions in a voice without knowing the language.
The only thing I could get behind is a lack of cultural knowledge leading to miserunderstandings in that regard but i'm pretty sure the differences aren't that big

In short, you're full of shit

In japan voice acting is serious business and therefore talent is usually much better than in the west where dubs are basically done by weaboos who have nothing else to do.

The same reason why they are taboo when it comes to live-action. Made for retards, by retards.

Mainly cause its not often you'd find one thats on par with the japanese, or better. Though that said, some anime fans do exaggerate and consider every dub bad no matter what.

Me personally, I feel a dub is only truly bad if its by Sentai Filmworks (bonus points if Greg Aryes is in it and does the dweeb voice), or by a childrens company that only releases it in edited/censored form. For the most part, dubs from other companies range from passable to decent to me.

This.
As someone who was raised bilingual, fuck dubs. They just feel so unnatural.

It stems from a general distaste for official localisers, which in turn stems from a distaste for the 'mainstream'. Localisation companies, such as 4kids, tend to alter the dialogue and plot to be closer to mainstream western messages. This leads to lower quality, due to divergence from the core material (a la One Piece). There's also an aspect of anime being a refuge or an outlet for social outcasts, and anything that brings it closer to societal ideals, especially at the price of quality, is detested. There's still a general hangover of this, in that the CrunchyRoll sub rips are released as HorribleSubs.

Ok, how about this.
Why do people care when someone else prefers to watch dubs?
>>
>>101033617
Because it is not the pure way to enjoy a series, obviously.

though technically, a true purist would watch raw with fluent understand of Japanese

Sounds like a case of stop liking what i don't like.
