Which is better: dubbed anime or subtitled anime? The Dubs. vs Subs debate goes live from ECCC '22 stages

The gang from Nerds Know hold court to decide the winner of Dubs vs. Subs

One of the oldest arguements when it comes to anime is what's better: a subtitled version of the Japanese cartoons for non-Japanese-speaking audiences, or dubbed versions with voice actors re-voicing the Japanese voice actors' lines. Dubs vs. Subs. And here at Emerald City Comic Con, the gang from Nerds Know are hosting a panel to debate the pros and cons of each - and even try to figure out which is actually, scientifically, better.

Popverse is filming this and many other panels at ECCC this year, and making them one of two ways - by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher), or by buying a ECCC digital ticket. The ECCC digital ticket gives you access to live video panels streamed at ECCC from the Main Stage, VOD panels from three other stages, and access to all the great content from Popverse for 30 days. The Popverse membership does that for the entire year, and would include live video panels from the upcoming New York Comic Con, MCM London Comic Con in October, and (yes) next year's Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2.
