Let's not jump to conclusions. Some people think that distorted image is Yugioh! I find that is not likely because 4kids seems to still have the rights and this doesn't seem like Bandai's type of thing to license. Same thing applies to Star Driver. While it appears they do have it, let's not jump to conclusions.

If this is case, hybrid release in 2 half-season sets, please! I would to hear Johnny Bosch as Takuto. I'm not really into BD releases, but please do it for those that are?

Please use Hyperlinks since its much easier than copying and pasting.. And to the topic: I'm not sure what to feel since even if it does get licensed it might not even get a dub.. :/

I am aware it could be sub-only release. If they do release, let's hope they aren't adding to their bad track record of delayed releases/re-releases.

I loved this show and how it ended. It great that it is be released in america but i already have the entire series on dvd. I just don't want to see this series go down the drain in dubbing. Why can't they air anime with just subtitles in america, i mean anime in america has the original japanese opening subbed but then subbing the whole thing costs money and rights so yeah. I at least hope the dubs are good.

there are just people that can't do it, people that can't read "i can't spell it out" and some others can't keep up. This is all the examples I can give for this but still k-on got a dub with no chance on tv ever why not this on adult swim but they don't give a crap anymore

Yeah its Star Driver cause it looks like Takuto in his Galactic Pretty Boy form. I really hope they do dub it cause I despise buying sub-only DVDs unless I really have no other choice.

JYB would make a much better Sugata since he voiced Lelouch; as did Sugata's Japanese seiyuu.

GaZsTiC, while I'll let you have your opinion, I personally think the bad-ass and youthful persona Takuto has is the reason Johnny would fit. Also, I am taking into account Mamoru Miyano, the voice of Takuto, was Kiba in Wolf's Rain, as was Johnny.

Cool thing that I think a lot of otaku may not realize is Takuto is the voice of Light and Sugata is Lelouch. I suppose maybe the staff of Star Driver decided that because Lelouch and Light had similar personalities and the fact fans often may put them in a "Who would won?" situation, they decided to have Fukuyama and Miyano be rivals.


akutsu, the only real American channels specifically for anime are the FuniMation and Anime Network channels.

No! Star Driver is too fabulous for an English dub!

I'm just kidding, if I ever do buy boxsets, I'll go pick this up along with the other titles waiting for me to consume using my low amount of money.

AsuraCryin, legitimate purchases of legitimate DVDs whenever one can is one of the most emphasized keys of helping the industry to get back on its feet. There are plenty of places to buy used anime (Some DVDs fetch for as low as $5). I am so going to buy Star Driver when it does get released.

im really happy sd is getting a release since i loved the series too much but i despise bandai with their endless amount of trolling (seriously not dubbing tales of the abyss and turn a gundam was pure idiosey i understand hayate and tales a little but not gundam) so i had hoped funi would get it.
