Anime (Japanese animation) is a cultural phenomenon that has swept the globe since the 90’s. More and more non-Japanese speakers are becoming interested in the world of Japanese animation. Instead of learning Japanese from scratch, viewers deliberate between the controversial choices of watching dubbed (with English voiceovers replacing Japanese audio) or subbed (retaining the Japanese audio and adding subtitles) versions of anime.
Subbed anime is better
Watching subtitled anime is the subtlest way to experience anime without changing too much.
The nuances of Japanese speech are retained
Subtitling minimises the translation gap by keeping the Japanese audio.
