Where are all the dubs on Crunchyroll?

Answered by Cody Janus

On Crunchyroll, the majority of shows are only available with subtitles, or subbed. However, there are a few shows that have both subbed and dubbed versions. Unfortunately, there isn’t a specific button or option to switch between sub and dub versions for most shows.

It’s important to note that Crunchyroll primarily focuses on providing anime content with subtitles for the international audience. Subtitles allow viewers to watch the shows in their original Japanese language, while still being able to understand the dialogue through translated text. This maintains the authenticity and cultural context of the anime.

That being said, there are a limited number of shows on Crunchyroll that do offer a dub option. These shows are usually marked separately on the main show page as if they are different seasons of the same show. For example, you may see the subbed version listed as “Season 1” and the dubbed version listed as “Season 2” of the same show.

The availability of dubbed versions on Crunchyroll depends on various factors, such as licensing agreements and the preferences of the anime studios. Dubbing requires additional resources and time, including hiring voice actors and recording new dialogue in the desired language. Therefore, not all shows have dub options due to these factors.

To find shows with dubbed versions on Crunchyroll, you can try searching specifically for dubbed anime or look for specific titles that are known to have dub options. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the selection of dubbed shows may be limited compared to the overall catalog of subbed content.

In my personal experience, I’ve found that the majority of shows on Crunchyroll are subbed, which I actually prefer as it allows me to immerse myself in the original language and hear the voice performances as intended by the creators. However, I do understand that some viewers may prefer dubs for various reasons, such as language barrier or personal preference.

Crunchyroll primarily focuses on providing subbed anime content, although there are a few shows that offer dub options. The availability of dubbed versions depends on licensing agreements and studio preferences. If you specifically want to watch dubbed anime, you may need to search for shows that are known to have dub options or explore other streaming platforms that specialize in dubbed content.
