Exactly, with the right voice actors, it can very well done. If you just don't like dubs all together, like I said before, buy the DVDs, they have dual audio with subs. If you don't want to "buy" the DVDs, download a torrent and rip people for their money. :p


Fma, .hack//, and i will say megaman.
I just this some people rush when dubing

funimation sucks and so are all the licensers who like to DUB it with horrible voices. Mind you, even if there's a sub with two voice options like jap/eng the sub might not be very good...

People who aren't aware of the Japanese language dubs(like me when I was 7, watching Pokemon), I suppose they buy the English dubs... ~_~

Come to think of it, though, the first time I saw Pokemon when I was 7, it was in Japan... at my friend's house, and her TV was playing it(Farfetch'D episode), though I was probably too young to realize any change in voices.
I knew the opening/ending was different though.

But yeah, dubbing is more important for children's anime, but most adult anime fans don't need it. I'm pretty sure Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn! shouldn't be aimed towards small children in America, since it involves the mafia...
So if they end up butchering it with crazy edits(changing Gokudera's dynamite into tampons or empty toilet paper rolls, changing Yamamoto's sword into a permanent bat, or changing all the rice balls into sandwiches), it's going to be major fail...

Hopefully if they do dub it, it will air on Adult Swim or something, instead of daytime Cartoon Network...

KHR is an awesome anime, I don't think they should be criticized because it's a great anime, a good title to choose for licensing. It does suck that it gets taken off here, though. Someone else suggested that instead of taking it completely off CR, they should just say that certain regions can't watch it, like CR did for the English dub of Welcome to the NHK.
I would just ask that Funi actually put some real extras (textless songs DON'T count as extras, it's now a given). Maybe just an interview with one of the voice actors or show how they do the dubbing, English or Japanese it doesn't matter. Something, anything to justify paying 35 dollars for four episodes of a show.

They will randomly combust, just like dynamite, but with confetti instead... just like Giannini's upgrade.

Frankly, if the series does get dubbed, I'd much rather get a subbed version or sub it myself. Though this series is pretty good, I think some characters can't be dubbed to their full potential. And as for Licensing, After reading several threads about the reasons why, I do enjoy the series enough to actually want to buy it. But if it'll take a while, I'll just search for any uploaded versions on the internet and watch those and when they've been deleted, I'd be more than happy to at least support those businesses that go almost out of business because of uploading onto the internet. Not everything in the world is free.

No. I am going to cry. Why must this happen? As l ong as they don't ruin it like Yu-Gi-Oh, Tokyo Mew Mew, One Piece... etc etc... why do I even hope? Well true if it turns out like FMA it won't be too bad but it depends on who their aim for viewers are... watch next will be a card game. =.=

I dont't think Funi going to ruin it because this anime involve gun and bullet ex. Reborn shoot at Tsuna. I mean you want kid in real life shooting one and another and yell "REBORN!!! I will become Superman with my dying will!". So I think this is going to feature in Adult Swim and hopefully the dub isn't bad.

For the person who put Adult Swim, your a retard!! The anime is already heavily edited the American companies don't have to do shit!! As long as its on Toonami Cartoon Network can get away with it plus its not violent enough for Adult Swim. Teens watching it would laugh their heads off and wonder why a kids show is on Adult Swim.
