To be fair, I learned a lot about the mentality at Funimation from their director/screenwriter commentary on Ookami-san
. While Japanese cast commentaries tend to be fluff similar to the Eng. commentaries I've heard (for the most part, TGwLtT did have an interesting set of commentaries), at least they were present for the making of the show. English commentary tracks seem out of place since they just add an audio track to the show and weren't present for the actual production.
Somewhat on topic, I should listen to the Railgun
JP commentaries now that my Japanese is better than it was in 2010.
I always believe myself to be acting within the realm of sanity.
