Now fans will be able to enjoy English dubs of certain shows WHILE THEY ARE SIMULCASTING! To kick off the initiative we have Psycho-Pass 2 and Laughing Under the Clouds.

Over the last 20 years, FUNimation has been on the frontiers of bringing English-dubbed anime over to Western audiences. Sure, watching subtitled anime is always a delight as you get to hear the Japanese cadence of the dialogue, but there’s certainly something more relieving about having our favorite shows made more relevant to stateside vernacular. An obstacle for folks who enjoy English-dubbed programming, however, has always been the long turnaround period in between when shows originally release in Japan, and when they see they light of day on this side of the ocean. But thanks to a brand new effort to improve the speed of dubbing, FUNimation hopes to deliver English-dubbed programming faster than it’s ever been done before.

I too hope this works for them...but I'd rather buy their DVDs still.

Funimation dubs were just about the only good ones out there. I hope the quality doesn't suffer from this.

That's a nice idea, and certainly I liked it when the did this with Space Dandy. For now, I'll keep on with the Japanese dub for those two shows. But I definitely endorse this idea.

I think it's really cool. Maybe will make English dubbing a more viable, consistent career for some people. Obviously, they won't be able to do it day-of at first, but that could be in the future.

If you like anime and want it to thrive in the States, news like this is nothing but good.

Yea, It would be pretty bad if the quality went down hill.

Wow! That's awesome! Maybe this will mean Toonami will air more certainly airing anime now since they want to broadcast the dub at the same time as the japanese dub! That would be really exciting!

Well said, I totally agree.

Now we just need Toonami to air during the weekdays and broadcast Funimation shows that came out that day Or, other stations like AMC start to broadcast anime. Ok I'm sorry, I'm jumping the gun but I like the thought!!!!

I mean, they specifically said that they would rework the dubs for disc releases, so I'd imagine the quality will stay the same (or maybe improve because of the new system?)

Could this result in them dubbing in groups, rather than individually? I feel like that would result in better rapport between the VAs...it remains to be seen.

Hopefully that would see the return of Toonami rivals like TechTV's old anime block. Just as long as Netflix doesn't buy up all the rights. We need more competition on TV.

Do we know what's replacing Attack on Titan on Toonami? Funimation might try one of these dub simulcasts with that. Psycho Pass is getting that much closer to being on Toonami!
