DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the earliest English-dubbed anime to air is Tetsujin 28-go? The said anime is known in English as "Gigantor". It started airing on October 20th, 1963 in Japan. The English-dubbed version started airing in the US in 1964. The anime was so heavily re-written. In effect, 13 of the English episodes were dubbed back into Japanese and treated as if they were a reboot or sequel. It was subsequently broadcast in Australia and New Zealand. This marked the start of Western people's inclination to anime.

Four other TV anime was dubbed into English and started airing overseas in 1965. These anime are Tetsuwan Atom (known in English as Astro Boy), Jungle Taitei (known in English as Kimba the White Lion), Wonder 3 (known in English as The Amazing 3), and 8 Man(known in English as 8th Man). These were the earliest period of English-dubbed Japanese anime incorporated into Western entertainment. Today, there are various websites to watch dubbed anime. Dubbed anime websites are available for fans to stream aside from subbed anime online. Translations are also available as the anime culture is not just exclusive to Japan anymore. So if you want to watch Kimetsu no Yaiba in either English dubbed or subbed that will now be possible. In fact, fans can now stream anime with subs and dubs in different platforms as the reach of anime has expanded beyond cultural lines.

    "For 6 bucks monthly this is a worth it to pay to stream anime. The best part is that most are dubbed anime aside from having subbed anime. TBH i prefter dubbed anime because it is hard for me to read the subtitles and then see what is happening on the screen. Of course it will take longer to get dubbed anime but i am definitely willing to wait. "
