Netflix: To Dub or Not to Dub; That’s the Option

Sources have confirmed English and Japanese language options for (nearly) all the FUNimation anime on Netflix’s streaming service. I don’t know about you, but I prefer Japanese language with English subtitles 9 times out of 10. This is great news for those of us who rely on the legit sources for streaming anime.

Personally, I focus heavily on Crunchyroll, so it’s pretty exciting to see the anime watcher’s viewing experience getting so much better in the past couple of years here. The rights and red tape involved with anime licensing are complicated and stressful, often it’s the production studio’s greediness that keeps us from enjoying all of the anime we should. It’s good to know the leaders in the industry are working hard for us viewers who just want to appreciate anime.

Here’s an updated list of anime currently available on Netflix. However, there are a few titles already excluded from this new feature. They include: Samurai 7, Speed Grapher, and Mushi-shi.

So… get ready to borrow your friend’s Netflix login; and get to streaming some anime on Netflix with dual audio language options!
