Clicksor Ads



New Ad Host

We're trying out a new ad host and so far it's not making nearly as much as our old one. Unfortunately we can not use adsense on anything but the forum so we will be bouncing around on different ad hosts until we can find another good one. If you see any adverse effects from the ads, (malicious popups, popunders, new windows opening) let us know.

Changes to Justdubs Theme



Finally being updated!

Hello! Currently the site is slowly undergoing a theme change. Some parts of the site may still use the old theme while those pages are being worked on with the new theme. We will try to minimize any downtime (if any) during this process. Currently the theme has been an ongoing process for several months now. Hopefully you enjoy it a lot more than the prior theme that we have been using. This one is to make the site feel more professional but also to be a nice base theme for future features we can think up and implement to enhance the site's user experience.

Feedback Survey Theme thread on forum
Feel free to take the feedback survey with any suggestions, complaints, or comments regarding to the site's theme.

Ad Redirects



Adhost Issue

We are aware of the current situation where some members have been experiencing occasional redirects through our ad service. We are actively working to resolve this issue. We have determined that both ad styles were causing the redirects. The ads on the forum and website are currently disabled. I'm waiting on a response from their support team now. I'm assuming because of the holidays they might be a little slow to respond.

Thanks you for your patience while we continue to improve your JustDubs Online experience.

JDO Field Trip: Vampire Café



A far cry from the milieu of Ginza!

A far cry from the sunny, commercial milieu of Ginza, the Vampire Café begs customers to enter a Gothic paradise, aptly blending tourist kitsch with the decor of Dracula's VIP room. Covered wall to wall with red velvet, and carefully decorated with a delicate touch of morbid flair, waiters take orders in snappy tuxedos and waitresses in French maid outfits glide across the red floor covered in red blood cells. From the decor to the dishes, every last detail is crafted to create a vast and eerie dining landscape.

While sitting at red-covered thrones, diners can sip a dark red aperitif garnished with tiny skulls. The light from candles atop coffins flicker with a supernatural aura powerful enough to make Bram Stoker work up an appetite for more blood-soaked treats as baroque music drones through the dim restaurant. The atmosphere is enough to make patrons forget the lively world of flagship stores and luxury shopping just seven floors below them and sink in their teeth.

Oh, Japan! Yakuza Trick-Or-Treat



The popularity of Halloween in Japan has increased!

In recent years, the popularity of Halloween in Japan has increased. And, as such, Japan's largest crime organization, the Yamaguchi-gumi, have decided to get in on the action.

Each year, these yakuza hand out huge bags of candy to local children, at their headquarters in Kobe, on Halloween night. And, despite the less savory side of this organization, it's hard to deny the joy that this event has brought to local kids and families.

But, this year the locals may be disappointed to find that Yamaguchi-gumi has cancelled their annual Halloween event for this year. Stating that: “Unfortunately, due to various circumstances our annual Halloween event is cancelled this year. We are looking forward to next year, when we hope to be able to run the event again. -Yamaguchi-gumi”

While the Yamaguchi-gumi have not given a specific cause for the cancellation of the event, local police speculate that it is due to secession of several branches from the main organization, thus leading to an increased risk in inter-gang violence.

It's a bit odd to see mafia getting into the Halloween spirit. But, hey. Free candy, right?

JustDubs Online Download Section Now Members Only

Downloads Are for Members Only

The download section is now reopened to forum members only. In order to view the download section, please register an account.

Within the one day of the download section being locked we had a bunch of accounts registered and I had a few PMs from people asking what happened. I'm under the understanding that a partially working download section is better than a completely closed one.

Now over one week later we have had around 30 plus accounts registered, some openly posting and helping to boost activity.

So we will be doing a trial run to see how the forum activity goes as opposed to how much ad revenue is lost from making the download section members only.

The incentive for us being more forum accounts and hopefully ( but might not necessarily mean) more posts and activity. This will also drive away a portion of people who will basically be saying "Screw registering, Ill go somewhere else" and that was my problem at the time it was originally discussed as this is where we will lose money. But one person introduced themselves already so at this point I guess more forum members are more important than more money as more forum activity will eventually get us both activity and money. Not entirely sure but we'll see what the ad revenue looks like after the next payout.

I'm open to suggestions, comments or criticism about this. Please post below.

JustDubs Online is Now Open!

JustDubs is back in action!

Our switch to JustDubs Online is complete! We're taking our brand back and showing the online community why our site and brand we've painstakingly created is so heavily copied. We're mimicked by multiple other sites who are only out to make a profit from you. We at JustDubs have worked tirelessly for years to perfect your online anime experience.

Our site has over 1020 high quality anime with multiple hosts to stream from and a fully functioning download section all at your finger tips. Our forum and social community are vast, we regularly hold ongoing conversations, discussions and other fun events within our community. There is a social group on our forum for everyone! Whether you want to watch anime (we have three different clubs who watch together), read comic books, design art, roleplay or just play video games with a group of like-minded individuals; we have the club that's for you.

We take a completely different approach to other streaming sites who only offer a small list of shows to choose from and a nonexistent community. We pave the way for these other places trying to develop their sites by also having an active reviews team who accepts user submitted reviews on a regular basis. We post daily media and news articles to keep you entertained and well up to date with the anime world around you.

We're taking back the brand we've created and showing the online anime community why we are so heavily copied. You can't compare to the original!

Visit Our Merchandise Shop!

Our merchandise shop is up and ready to go!

The JustDubs merchandise shop is up and running! So far we only have 9 shirts to choose from but expect there to be dozens of items with multiple different designs for each mascot soon. Each shirt is only $19.90 and that INCLUDES shipping!

From now until October 14th enjoy $5 off any order of $30 or more. That's $5 off when you buy two shirts with us! Just enter the promo code "NINA5" when you're checking out. Help support our site and show your love for it at the same time! A percentage of every item sold goes to funding our community!

Our New Mascot

Introducing our new mascot, Midori

Introducing Dubtopia's newest mascot, Midori. For those of you who were active on the Just Anime Network and remember the mascot from Just Reviews then she won't be new for you. She was our mascot for JR who was used briefly though a name was never decided. After holding a small poll the community has voted and named her Midori. She will be featured in a couple images relating to the upcoming reviews section and styled around the review pages once they're complete. She is the cousin of Kami and Arisu the three symbolizing the family aspect of our community.

Within the next month we will hold an event to determine her back story.

Content Managers Wanted

We are currently looking for one, maybe two Content Managers

Do you love our community? Do you have a passion for anime? Do you have a strong desire to make this the best dubbed anime website online? Then you may be who we are looking for. We are currently looking for one, maybe two content managers to help add, fix and manage anime series / movies / specials. We are currently an uploading team of 6 people. With Rodrule gone and the recent Videoslasher closure we are very busy mostly dedicating our time now to the VS fixes. Thus we find ourselves in need of extra people to help with adding new releases and possibly assisting in remote URL uploading the VS fixes.

Content Manager - Key Responsibilities:

- Upload new anime series, movies and specials
- Fix broken anime episodes/series.
- Managing reported content
- Managing Requests

- Good communication skills.
- Great work ethic.

Additional Information:

- Experience a plus, maturity a must.
- VOLUNTEER WORK. All positions are unpaid.
- All content managers should have a good internet connection.
- Available at least 10-14 hours a week online.
- Must have a hdd large enough to fill a few dozen series and keep them for later fixes.

How to Apply:

If you are interested please send me an PM with the position you are applying for (Content Manager) as the subject.

If you have previous experience please list that in the PM with examples of previous work if possible. Being an active presence in the community’s forum is a huge bonus, although it is not required. Please include whether or not you have uploaded videos in the past. Please include any computer skills that set you apart from another applicant (ie. experience in video editing, rendering and encoding etc.)

Applications will remain open until we fill the positions.
