I think dubbed openings use to be a lot more popular back when there was a huge (or fairly vast at least) selection of anime on TV and even when you bought DVDs of shows not on TV you would be expecting a bit of that kind of quality. Now though anime is more focused on DVD and people are expecting more faithful represneations of the medium with how easy it is to know if something was mistranslated or not. I mean there use to be a lot of dub/english openings of DVD only shows here (like Kiddy Grade) but I think those days are over as really seems like a waste of money now for companies when people just want to see the original openings anyway with subtitles. I think the people who care the most about trasnlating opening now are fandubbers, not professional companies.

...... The same talkbacks you saw me do last year but with new episodes.
