The Ocean Group (a.k.a. Ocean Productions Inc.) is a well-known Canadian dubbing studio based in [[UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}} Vancouver, British Columbia]]. They're responsible for the dubbing of quite a few {{anime}} series, as well as a few foreign-language live action films and original English-language productions. They're probably most well known for their work on nearly every release in the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise and being the unofficial dubbing studio of the works of Creator/RumikoTakahashi.

Their most prolific clients include Creator/VizMedia, Creator/{{Geneon}}, and Creator/BandaiEntertainment, among others. They were also used by Creator/FUNimation and CentralParkMedia in their early days. Keep in mind that the use of the voice actors in Ocean's talent pool does not mean Ocean had anything to do with the production. Ocean is just a production company based in Vancouver that pulls from the same voice pool the rest of the studios do (it's a very common misconception). Also do not forget that there is a sister studio in Calgary, Blue Water Studios. All shows recorded in Vancouver unless stated otherwise.

Not to be confused with Ocean Software, an 80s/90s video game company.

!!Some tropes that The Ocean Group is most well known for:

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Blue Water Studios in Calgary, Alberta, Canada is known as Ocean's "Sister Studio" and while Ocean Studios' name has been mentioned during the credits of dubs that use Blue Water talent the studios are generally very different. To be fair, the voice talent from both studios have worked together before such as Dave Pettit of ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' fame has been in some English dubs of anime with Ocean lately and SaffronHenderson was the singing voice of Fancy Lala. Heck, both studios have worked together in some of the ''Gundam'' games. Blue Water Studios is not as popular as the Ocean Group (in fact some have even considered Blue Water to be a PoorMansSubstitute for Ocean). However in Blue Water's defense, they have been in some renowned dubs such as ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', and the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series since ''X8''.
* OutOfFocus: Over the course of the 2000s (and even today), they did not have as much work as they used to. One of the reasons why is because Canadian voice talent was used pretty frequently back in [[TheNineties the 1990s]] due to how the currency exchange between the American and Canadian currency made using Canadian talent more affordable, and how efficient their productions were. But due to the current economic troubles caused in the late 2000s, the currency exchange rate between the two countries no longer worked in Canada's favor and Canadian voice talent (and studios) had less work. For Viz Media, back in the '90s and the early 2000s, when the majority of their properties were voiced by The Ocean Group, they nowadays only use them occasionally such as in ''Manga/DeathNote''.
** In addition, some of the more popular voice actors like Creator/ScottMcNeil don't get as many roles as the some newer ones, like [[CreatorsPet Scott McCord]], whilst other well-known voice actors like Creator/TrevorDevall and Creator/MattHill have moved over to California. Ashleigh Ball and Creator/TabithaStGermain have also seen a lot of work in recent years compared to voice actors like Creator/KellySheridan and Teryl Rothery.
*** This is actually averted with Blue Water Studios, because of how cheap their voice talent is, and the fact that their voice actors have gotten pretty good at their jobs. They're being used for many projects that Ocean's main Vancouver studio/actors would've been likely been used only a few years ago. Some of their recent projects include ''Literature/DeltoraQuest'', ''Cardfight!! Vanguard'', The newer ''Mega Man'' games, ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', ''Anime/PrettyCure'', ''Anime/FullMoonOSagashite'', and many others. They're many Japanese studios' choice for their own dubbing (including Toei and TMS), and they've seen a surge in work since the economy went under. Ocean's Vancouver Studio's only English dubs in recent years are ''[[Manga/InuYasha InuYasha: The Final Act]], ''[[Manga/BlackLagoon Black Lagoon: Roberta's Trail]]'', ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', ''Manga/{{NANA}}'', and ''Manga/DeathNote''.
