Not everyone loves to read the subtitles while watching anime. And the other reason for anime being dubbed from Japanese to English is to expand the anime industry globally and make it available to the whole world.
The debate between the subbed and the dubbed community has been going on for a while. Though some may agree with a few of the anime sounding better in dubs, except those subs are the most popular way of enjoying anime.
