Sister Post: Anime is NOT a style or art form.
For fuck knows how long, most English-speaking anime fans have fought over what is better or what they prefer; Japanese voices and english subtitles(subs) or English language voices dubbed over the original voices(dubs). So, which one is better? Contrary to popular belief, there is no one single answer. There are good dubs and bad dubs. There are good originals and bad originals. There are times where the dub is better than the original and visa-versa.
Now instead of making a long-winded rant about why this argument in general is fucking ignorant, I’ll just state the following: If you do not speak Japanese fluently, then your opinion on the Japanese voice acting is null and void because what sounds great in one language may sound like shit to a native or fluent speaker of the Japanese language. I didn’t realize that until I bothered to learn the Japanese language and what I thought was good acting started to sound pretty mediocre at best.
Sorry, but your ignorant bias for Japanese actors and against english actors is fucking ridiculous so spare everybody your bullshit because nobody that understands Japanese wants to see it.

When obsession wins over love and you’ve got yourself an immensely affectionate stalker instead of a girlfriend, you have a yandere on your hands. These are the kind of girls that break into your house while you’re away, hide under your bed while you’re at home, schlick directly under you while you sleep, come out when you’re gone again, schlick again in your bed while licking and humping your pillows, and then proceed to check your messages to see if you’re involved with another girl. They usually don’t have any kind of higher ideal or ethical policy; they sometimes don’t even view themselves as people so much as an entity made out of the impulse or desire to be with their man. A yandere is awesome because it’s outwardly impossible to tell that the girl is completely insane; she has just enough presence of mind left over to maintain a convincing facade, and God help everyone around her if she decides to drop it. If you don’t react well, things could get messy, so in the off chance you don’t want to enjoy the fruits of your yandere’s darker exploits, here are several things you need to take into account.
