Me personnally, I like the hybrid discs. Subbed and dubbed. Why, you ask.

I have kids.

I like watching the Anime's subbed, but my kids don't read well enough or
fast enough to follow the story very easily, and I end up reading the whole
movie to them.
Dubs, on the other hand(even bad ones) let me relax, and enjoy the movie,
while my kids get a greater exposure to what's out there.

I don't need little Disney(TM) Billboards running arround my house.

When the kids are at school, grandmas, or in bed, I get to watch the
Subtitled movies in all their glory, and don't have to hear "What'd they
say?" 50 times.
