    In anime can you miss stuff in a dubbed version?
    Does that even make sense?
    Like okay I watched the first Season Of Diabolik lovers in English. It was okay- could I have missed anything in the dubbed version of it? Like a important piece of information? Or would it all be the same?

    Oh oh and another thing what is the anime with the other set of vampire brothers Mukami brothers or would that be the same anime?

    I can't say about anime itself but I am partial to foreign horror films and I know that dubbing and captioning on many of these are just kind of loosely done. They give you the basic idea of what is going on but sometimes it isn't all there.

    I often watch movies here in China, many are translated, others with wording at bottom of screen. The translations many times are so comical it is not funny. There is often so much lost in translation.

    It honestly depends on who's doing the sub/dub of the anime. All the information and plot should be there but a lot of the subtleties will not be. There could be verbal interactions that play out completely different when spoken in japanese compared to english.

    Then comes the subtitled version. You get the verbal interaction perfect but you will lose some in the translation based upon who did the translation. So it is a catch 22, it will translate most of what is going on, but you're likely to miss out on some of the subtleties. I never really had a problem with that truth be told.
