It's a nothingburger. The only times I boycott a company is if they stick their nose directly into politics - i.e. companies try to lobby in their favor.

Funi is Funi and this "Echo Light" is separate -don't care what the CEO does with his checks. As long as it doesn't affect Funimation.

As we get closer to Anime Boston, Kantai Collection has been licensed and Samurai Warriors rises from the grave with a final set release date and a dub!

I checked out the dub for Keijo, it's pretty great. The main four are all good.

[up] I know the main girl was voiced by the same actress who plays Android 18 in DBZ Abridged.

Keijo was pretty alright. Kind of walked the line High School of the Dead did with the fanservice being so absurd it was funny.

From the looks of it, Attack on Titan will also be getting the Simuldub treatment and they will also be uploading dubbed episodes of Super.

Griffith and Casca being recast doesn't surprise me considering how limited their roles are here, but I'm surprised that Bang Zoom didn't bring back Marc Diraison to voice Guts.

I wonder what the story is there?

[up] Funimation is pretty good about getting original cast members back to reprise their roles. I think the only exception was the Trigun movie and that was because everyone (save for JYB) turned it down due to pay dispute.

Yuri, Kate, and Johnny? Wow.

Well, they have to keep union pay in mind.

[up]x3 The Danganronpa anime too, but that was mostly because production started around the same time as the games were released, if I have my facts straight.

Seeing Yuri, Kate, and Johnny back for Akito leaves me hopeful that Funi will keep their streak of having actors reprise their roles when it's time for the new season to be dubbed, even if certain ones probably won't be able to return.

... Disappearance of Yuki-Chan was still dubbed by Bangzoom, which explains why it was so easy to get the original dub cast back. Funimation just commissioned it.

Seven Deadly Sins (No, not the fanservice redden one coming next month) cast, once again outsourced to Bang Zoom.

[up] So there's this Seven Deadly Sins, that's more commonly known

And there's this show coming up with a much more repetitive and silly title: Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai or Sin: The 7 Deadly Sins

Oh right I heard of that anime. I just didn't know its English name.

Yeah, except Funimation didn't actually have anything to do with the dub on this one. It's a Netflix licensed series that Funimation has the home video rights for. It's like how Sentai has Knights of Sidonia.

It's kind of interesting actually. The big streaming sites are grabbing high profile titles...but they aren't bothering with physical releases. Netflix makes sense there, but the Funimation/Crunchyroll partnership has home video rights to Kanberi of the Iron Fortress when Amazon apparently has the capacity to do a proper home video release without handing the rights to anyone else.

So it's just like how they got the home video rights to the first Seven Deadly Sins anime.

..... anything with the theme of the Seven Deadly Sins should now be treated this way by Funimation. :D

[up]We're talking about the Netflix one that Funimation got the home video rights for. They're announcing the voice cast even though the dub's been around for ages now. No one's announced the new one yet.

Looks like Funimation is slowing down their Broadcast dubs for the Spring. Only announced ones that they have confirmed are My Hero Acadmeia, Attack on Titan 2, and Sakura Quest.

Netflix makes sense there, but the Funimation/Crunchyroll partnership has home video rights to Kanberi of the Iron Fortress when Amazon apparently has the capacity to do a proper home video release without handing the rights to anyone else.

I'm guessing Amazon just never really cared to make a dub for it or do a physical release. They just want more people signing up for Prime and their Streaming Service.

Funimation's 2 most popular new broadcast dubs came out on the same day yesterday, and it's gotten so much online activity, it gave Crunchyroll server problems!! :D Amazing.
