* {{Fanservice}}: While not the biggest offender when compared to Creator/MediaBlasters and Creator/{{Funimation}}, a few of their romantic comedy and ecchi titles fall into this. Bonus points that [[Anime/SengokuOtome two of]] [[LightNovel/HyakkaRyouranSamuraiGirls the tiles]] they've licensed involves the Sengoku Period.

* AllStarCast: Generally avoided, as Sentai tends to use newer voice actors like Creator/MargaretMcDonald, Creator/BlakeShepard, Creator/CaitlynnFrench, and Creator/GenevieveSimmons. However, it's relatively common to see some of the old ADV veterans show up in lead roles, occasionally even on the same dub.



* BreakthroughHit: ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', which established them as a worthy successor to ADV after the old studio's collapse, as well as a rival to the larger anime distributor, Creator/{{Funimation}}.



* NoBudget: Sort of. Unlike the larger anime license companies like Creator/{{Funimation}}, Creator/VizMedia, and even their direct predecessor Creator/ADVFilms, Sentai Filmworks runs on a somewhat limited budget. They also have a tendency to occasionally rush things because of this (even for their sub-only releases), which leads to their generally bare-bones releases – no extra features other than clean openings and endings, and trailers – and on a few occasions, lackluster adaptations, a few of which have unfortunately even sported errors or inconsistencies in translation. Also, like L.A. based recording studio Creator/{{BangZoom|Entertainment}}!, they try to avoid giving their dubs [[AllStarCast A-level casts]], in favor of newer (cheaper) talent. Fortunately, they aren't as bad when compared to Creator/MediaBlasters.[[note]] Media Blasters, which has been on the verge of death for several years at this point, got into a lot of trouble when it was revealed that the folks behind the ''Anime/SquidGirl'' dub were never paid for their work.[[/note]]
** To put it in perspective, Creator/GregAyres has stated that the time and budget Sentai gives the dubbing staff to complete 12-13 episodes is equivalent to what ADV gave them to make ''four'' episodes.
* NoDubForYou: Up until around 2011, they released almost all of their properties on DVD with Japanese audio only – ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' and ''Anime/GhostHound'' were the only major exceptions prior to this (and even those two were originally sub-only). Nowadays, they release a decent number of their titles with English dubs from Creator/SeraphimDigitalStudios, though they still release several titles sub-only.
** In recent years, they even re-released some of their titles that were initially sub only with all-new English dubs, such as ''Anime/SpecialA'' and ''Anime/MariaHolic''. In general, they're most likely to dub shows that have proved to be popular (even originally sub-only home video release) and/or seem to appeal to western audiences, as that would mean they'll probably sell well and therefore justify the production of said dub.
* TheOtherDarrin: While they have used Creator/BangZoomEntertainment for continuity with the dubs of properties they rescued from Bandai and Geneon, two of their titles, Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya and ''[[Manga/RozenMaiden Rozen Maiden Zurückspulen]]'', which are related to rescue licenses, had them use their in-house studio and their own voice actors instead outsourcing. The reasons are unknown, although some fans speculate that it's because it's much cheaper to use their own voice talent over Californian voice actors. It makes some sense, as the two titles mentioned are spinoffs of the original work rather than being a continuation of the actual series so its not ''quite'' as glaring to use different voice actors.[[note]] It also doesn't help to note that some of the voice actors in the original dubs, such as Creator/RebeccaForstadt and Creator/SherryLynn aren't as active in anime dubs as they were in the past.[[/note]]



* ProductionPosse: Tends to cast the following [=VA=]s in their dubs in general: Creator/EmilyNeves, Creator/MargaretMcDonald, Creator/BlakeShepard, Creator/CaitlynnFrench, Creator/GenevieveSimmons, and Creator/JessicaCalvello. Meanwhile, veteran mainstays from the ADV years such as Creator/GregAyres, Creator/MonicaRial, Creator/BrittneyKarbowski, and Creator/LuciChristian are likely to be cast as major characters… if they're not too busy working on Creator/{{Funimation}} titles up in Dallas.
