I think you're reading something no one else is.

I'm so overjoyed that it's hard to express how I'm feeling. This is the best anime news I have EVER heard. Thank god for more Gintama!

Ugh. You guys are getting off topic. This isn't a dub vs. sub discussion and it's not even about One Piece.

Go back to talking about the awesomeness that is Gintama.


I'll talk about the Gin Tama manga then :P.

Have you even watched any of the episodes from the box set yet?


Do you even know Japanese?


Would you accept a download link for one of the episodes from the box set?

And no, I don't know Japanese, and I'm not interested in learning it anytime soon.


If you have watched the Japanese version, or even just watch those ones are subtitled, then compare them with the english dubbed ones...
then you would know what is changed in dubbed version....
and actually, the original is much more interesting than the dubbed ones...

it is interesting that you like anime that are created by Japanese, but not interested in learning Japanese...
it is more fun and interesting if you know more about the Japanese culture while you're watching their anime...


I'm talking about the FUNimation uncut and unedited dub, not 4 Kids.


I don't think i mentioned 4Kids, and I'm not talking about 4Kids as well...
I just suggested if you never watch one Japanese version anime, then should watch one and compare it to the dubbed version... (and I'm not saying they will have cut/edited scene in every epsoide....so if you didn't find one, and that doesn't mean they don't have it....)

I almost worried myself grey, but it was a false alarm.
hope they won't make fans worry one more time.

lol honestly I'm a little sad that it's not ending. I hate when a series goes on forever >_>

Oh well at least we finally got a clear answer and it is Gintama after all :P
Now I just hope there won't be too many fillers...
Tbh. The only fillers in Gintama are the flas back episodes. Fillers dont really exist in a anime as random as gintama Lol which is why its one of the animes im ok with going on for ages.

Actually there are a couple more filler episodes, but as long as they keep it funny I can't complain :D

I was hearing that it was ending soon and I'm really glad that it isn't. A Crunchyroll membership is worth the money for Gintama alone.

*still waiting for it to be licensed for an english dub*


Yack...


I hate how 80% of MAL are people like you. people who just watch f***ing fansubs.


If you think about it, this site is more useful to people that watch fansubs than it is to people that watch dubs on tv, or rent, or buy. So, yeah, probably more than 80% of MAL watches fansubs.

Also, did you stop to think that maybe he meant that he liked *subs* (in general) better than dubs?


1.) I have noticed that.

2.) Maybe...ok, no >.>.

It's okay, you can swear. It's not like your mother is reading this.


I actually don't like to curse in general, I find it rude.
