** Averted with their release of ''Anime/GravestoneOfDaisukeJigen'', which included a brand new English dub. Discotek would later follow this up with additional English dubs of other 2010's-era ''Anime/LupinIII'' productions, including''WesternAnimation/LupinIIITheItalianAdventure''. Discotek have since commissioned other dubs, including ''Manga/HellsAngels'' and ''Anime/KemonoFriends''. Many of those dubs were made courtesy of Sound Cadence Studios and Creator/TeamFourStar.

* SequelFirst: They've released ''Diebuster'' (even doing so with the name ''Gunbuster 2'') and ''Tekkaman Blade II'', with no announced plans of rescuing and releasing their predecessors ''Gunbuster'' and ''Tekkaman Blade'', when Creator/SentaiFilmworks announced that they licensed the ''Gunbuster'' compilation movie, they stated that the origial OVA's are currently unavailable for licensing, leaving the original 6 episode version as a case of KeepCirculatingTheTapes.

** Gunbuster is licensed, but still no Tekkaman Blade.


* NoDubForYou: Sort of. ''If'' there's no pre-existing English dub for a show or movie they plan on releasing, it definitely means they'll be putting it out sub-only (with the exception of the bellow mentioned ''Gravestone of Daisuke Jigen''). If there ''is'' a dub, odds are good they'll include it [[note]]This includes examples such as ''Fist of the North Star'', ''Super Dimension Century Orguss'', and the Red Jacket ''Lupin the 3rd'' series, where the English dub is partial[[/note]]. If there are DuelingDubs, they might try to get ''all'' of them.
** Apparently, even the existence of a pre-existing dub is still no guarantee they'll include it, as their release of ''Dallos'' demonstrates (though to be fair, the dub for that series wasn't particularly good quality). To a lesser extent, there's their release of ''Space Adventure Cobra'', which includes the Streamline dub, but not the Manga dub due to copyright issues.
** Averted with their release of ''Gravestone of Daisuke Jigen'', which will include a brand new English dub. Whether or not this is merely a one-time exception to their rule or a test to see if dubbing is a practice the company can get into remains to be seen.
** They were open for a possible dubbed home video re-release of the first season of ''Anime/{{Free}}'' after the initial sub-only release. Crunchyroll currently has a dub of the first season with the Funimation cast from Season 2 on its website, which Funimation eventually released themselves.
** Possibly an inverted example is their upcoming DVD release of ''Sonic X'', which will only be the edited [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] English dub and unlike with ''Samurai Pizza Cats'' and ''Monster Rancher'', there are currently no plans for a separate release of the uncut version with subtitles. That's because 4Kids, when streaming the show subtitled on Hulu, did not provide TMS with the timed subtitle scripts. This means that a subtitled release (or even re-dubbed) would require a complete recreation of the subtitles from scratch, a feat that Discotek isn't sure is worth the time, effort, and cost.[[note]] It doesn't help that ''Sonic X'', at 78 episodes, is a rather lengthy series.[[/note]]
** Similarly to the ''Sonic X'' example, their re-release of ''Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust'' will only have the English dub with no Japanese track included. However, unlike ''Sonic X'', the English dub was actually recorded first due to the movie [[ShortRunInPeru being released in America and Australia over a year before Japan got it]], making this a straight example.
** For the first time, a new release is averting this, as ''WesternAnimation/LupinIIITheItalianAdventure'' is being released with an English Dub.

** They released several ''Franchise/LupinIII'' specials before they put out the original ''[[Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket "Green Jacket"]]'' series. Had negotiations not fallen through, they would have released the third ''Lupin'' movie (''Babylon'') before the first (''Mamo''). But since this franchise runs on NegativeContinuity, it's not too big a deal.

Added DiffLines:

** Invoked to avert. Some of their acquisitions of older series like ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket'', and the original ''Manga/CuteyHoney'' resulted in the series' respective trivia pages on this site having to be rewritten to ''remove'' this.
** Played straight with ''Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust''. Fans had been asking for years that the Japanese audio be included on any re-release, but when Discotek requested it, they were denied, the original rights-holder stating that the Japanese track was not to leave Japan.
