Gen X anime/manga fan; grew up on Star Blazers, Battle of the Planets, Speed Racer back in the day, got out of the Anime scene around the Robotech years, then back into it in the early 2000s. Unapologetic supporter of English-dub anime. I know a smattering of Japanese but not very much at all really. There was a time and place (80s and 90s) when most dubs really did suck, but anyone who makes that blanket statement now is wrong. Dubs have gotten much better and that really matters to the long term survival of the genre and making it accessible to a larger and larger audience.
