I mean, why not? Have you seen the dubs for Xenoblade Chronicles and/or The Last Story?

There is basically no VA's in the UK, that is why

You are forgetting about the many audio dramas that are produced there.

Even though I love Britain, I guess it wouldn't really fit for some Animes ._.

Those were dubbed by Americans, not Brits.

well its all about .... well you know .... i dont want to go there , I am also a voice actor.

Anyway .... Ghost In the Shell , the second movie was initially and partly dubbed by British actors plus the usual cast of american voice actors .

But if only there is a strong ADR production company there and market for it there , why not .

A lot of it no doubt has to do with market size. A dub is going to cost roughly the same, but if you are selling it to a population that is about 1/5 the size (assuming an equal proportion of people in then UK are anime fans vs. the US), you are going to have a hard time making the money back. To be financially successful with most series, a company would need to successfully re-license the dub to other English speaking countries. The problem is that US companies would typically rather "roll their own", especially if the series or movie itself wasn't either set in the UK or featured characters from there. (Meanwhile, anime fans in the UK regularly have to tolerate even characters from other worlds and dimensions speaking with an American accent).

The US sells to a large enough population they can usually go it alone one a dub, but even Funimation and Sentai aren't opposed to relicensing their dub to companies in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand to help defray the cost.

In the early days of the first anime boom in the end of the 80's and early 90's the companies distributing anime didn't have the pro dubbing companies they have now and a lot of them dubbed their own stuff. Anime dubbed with British casts has been done in the past. A lot of early anime i watched was actually done with British actors and it was for the most part cheesy and horrible. If there are some good British voice actors out there and there are because they do games and there are characters that would fit that sort of voice then great but a fully British dubbed anime is something i never want to see again.

Because it turns out like this.

I'm British & personally would like to see va here.

I know we don't have a company and frankly why should we when there's companies who already do it for the uk audience.
So what I'd like to see are voice actors/actresses come from the uk and join said companies. I also think this should apply to all accents of the world, why should we have some voice actors fake an accent when there are possible many brilliant VAs here.

I know it'd probably won't ever happen, but i'd like to think that eventually we'll get a wider variety of va instead of the same people forcing an accent.
