While the anime industry initially flourished in the country of Japan, it did not take much time for it to become a global sensation. There were a lot of series that were watched by millions of children around the globe, and it was made possible by dubbing the original audio of whatever was screening at the time.

For those who might not know, dubbing is the process of hiring voice actors to recreate dialogues from Japanese to another language, such as English, so it can reach a larger audience. This allowed people to enjoy watching many different series even if they did not know Japanese.
