Is There a Way to Watch Dub on Crunchyroll?
It is easy to identify and stream dubbed content on the Crunchyroll platform. You can identify dubbed content on the platform by the tag it displays along with its thumbnail.
Series that are dubbed have the “Dubbed” or “Sub | Dub” tag in the thumbnail so you may want to pay attention to the tags when searching for your anime titles.
You can also make things easier for yourself by using the filter on the platform when searching for shows. To do this, you will have to set the filter on Language to Dubbed and then search for the shows.
This will display all series that are dubbed, rather than displaying series that are specific to your preferred language.
Once you find a series you are interested in, choose your preferred dubbed version from the list of its drop-down menu so that you can start watching.
How Do I Change to Dubbed on Crunchyroll?
It is also possible to watch the dubbed version of the English subtitles of any episode in another language provided that the episode has actually been dubbed in English by its creators.
This suggests that you can literally switch from subs to dubs.
The only problem here is that, technically, there is no direct button on Crunchyroll to click and have your subs switched to dubs all of a sudden.
What you can do is queue the dubbed episodes as a separate season on their own then play the first episode of that queue for about 30 seconds.
After playing it for 30 seconds, you will be given access to watch the rest of the queued episodes.
Why Can’t I Watch Dub on Crunchyroll?
Crunchyroll keeps adding dubbed content in different languages to its database every now and then. As such, some series or episodes are available in more than just one language.
When you search for series on Crunchyroll using a filter that is set to Dubbed, what you get as results is actually all dubbed series in the different languages that are available.
Crunchyroll, by default, only allows you to watch dubbed episodes or series in a language that matches the language you set as your preferred language on the platform.
So, you will not be able to watch dubbed content in a language that is different from the preferred language unless your set your preferred language to match the language of the dubbed anime.
How Do I Change Crunchyroll to English?
