Also "Netflix Original Anime" is a straight up lie. They aren't making shit, just commissioning dubs and and distributing it. We don't call Spirited Away (or any other Ghibli film) a "Disney Original Anime," do we?

[up] It depends. In a case like with Devilman Crybaby, aren't they straight up footing the bill for it's creation, just like Time Warner/Toonami has done for FLCL 2?

For stuff like Fate and Kakegurui, yeah those are definitely not "original." I just take it as Netflix pushing their branding on all their exclusive content.

[up]Stuff like that and Castlevania, yeah they have a genuine claim to that. But stuff Fate, Knights of Sidonia, etc., it's just carefully selected bait for "normies" who will try anything at least once if they see the Netflix label on it.

Maybe it opens people up to Anime who would otherwise default to the age ghetto and just call it "weird Japan shit", and if so, that is a good thing. But it's still dishonest.

Announcements from Otakon...surprisingly, not too big this year. Your Name and Speed Racer's premium edition are confirmed for November, and Future Diary's OVA (which properly concludes the series) has finally been licensed.

EDIT: Looks like there were some licenses that were left out! The post also has the release dates for 91 Days, New Game season 1, Servamp, and Genocidal Organ.

Funimation confirmed some of their dubs for the Fall Season. In addition to the previously announced Black Clover, they've also confirmed:

Interestingly enough, neither Blood Blockade Battlefront S2 or Love Live! Sunshine!! S2 got announced in this first batched. I'm hoping another Virgin Soul situation doesn't happen.

Both eventually got announced. I'm enjoying the KJ reboot — the main actors are replaced (Hermes finally has a male actor for the dub!), but it doesn't detract from how good the show is overall (barring a bit of Compressed Adaptation for stories that were adapted in the first series). BBB is still amazing.

Haven't checked out the first episode of Ancient Magus's Bride yet, but I have heard rave reviews and I was pleasantly surprised by the dub's preview and its newcomer lead actress. "I'M A WAIFUUUU~"

I'm too deep into The Ancient Magus Bride's sub to bother with the dub.

Ancient Magus Bridge dub was definitely a surprise given the actress they hired is doing her first ever leading role in any type of animated series.

They also said that Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens will have an English voice track too for the simuldub.

I have a few questions regarding... well my current avatar should make it obvious.

  • How far is the dub of Show by Rock # on Funination's website?
  • What are your opinions on the show in general (dub or otherwise)?

  1. I do not know.
  2. It's adequate. Something you could show your kids depending on how you feel about the occasional fanservice.

Funimation revealed their dub cast for Ai Tenchi Muyo!

If some of these names sound familiar, there's a reason. Some of these names (Miller, Burchard, Lynn, Forstadt) are reprising their roles from previous Tenchi series. (ex: Matthew K. Miller and Petrea Burchard voiced Tenchi and Ryoko respectively in the first anime's dub.)

That said, some of the returning characters, like Ayeka and Washu, kind of got Darrin'd due to circumstances.

Notably, this is obviously an out-sourced dub because all or most of these actors are from California.

Because Funimation was bought by SONY a year ago, and Crunchyroll is now under At&t, the partnership between the two anime distributors is coming to an end, effective November 9th.

[up] I actually had a suspicion that something like that would happen, not just because of Sony buying Funimation, but because out of the blue Funimation suddenly started simulcasting shows again this season, this time Aniplex titles.

Going purely on speculation here; I don't forsee major changes to both catalogs. Based on their language in their responses, I think all the big titles from Funimation catalog will continue to simulcast on Crunchyroll (One Piece, Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia.)

As far as stuff getting pulled from Funimation, I imagine it will be the dubs that they had no hands in creating (Gintama, Berserk, Re:Zero, Bungo Stray Dogs, Mob Psycho 100.)

Also a by-product that the article above doesn't state: VRV is going to fill the Funimation void by picking up HIDIVE/Sentai anime.

You know who I miss? Dameon Clarke. Best known as Cell, Younger Toguro and Scar in 2003 FMA, kinda tells you something about the last time I heard him in anything.

Between that and new V As for Funi being younger than I am, where has the time gone.

Dameon's doing okay. Last time I saw him on TV, he was in NCIS, 24 and did voice work with Street Fighter V.
