People are already saying ''but that means the dubs will suck since they have less prep time'' which is likely wrong. Case in point: Space Dandy.

If that thing works, it will help the western anime industry plenty. Now we just need to find ways to stop piracy.


They also pointed out that they would redo some parts afterwards to have a ""final dub"" ready for box set releases. so I don't know why people still think that.

Hopefully it means more work for current VAs and more opportunities for potential VAs to make a name for themselves.


I'm actually hoping that out-of-state VAs will hear of this and try to land auditions for Funimation. Texas has many talented voice actors like J Michael Tatum, Monica Rial, Josh Grelle, Brina Palencia and many more, but a little variety never hurts.

I think several Japanese people put it best when they said they couldn't understand why dubs got hate when many of them were good. Answer? Weebos.


Interesting, I'd like a source. The one thing I can think of is that one video of Vic Mignona and Romi Park having a nice friendly conversation (through interpreters).

Pathetic.

There are many excellent English dubs (and yes, dubs in other languages as well), many of which are actually better than the original Japanese - even agreed upon by actual Japanese people.

Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, 12 Kingdoms, Princess Tutu, Space Dandy, the new Sailor Moon dub, Hetalia, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Inuyasha, Witch Hunter Robin, Magic Knight Rayearth, xxxholic...Excellent dubs just to name a few from the top of my head.

Fullmetal Alchemist dub it's not even close to the quality of the original audio .

In that list of yours, of the ones i watched, not even one dub is good as the japanese.

For you, they are excellent, for me, they all suck.

I threw some bread crumbs outside and locked the door: the only proper way of feeding the trolls.

As a (not exclusively) dub fan, I love this. I started watching anime with dub and I don't plan to start. FUNimation doesn't seem to have that many bad dubs so I'm pretty stoked to see more of them.

FUNimation Quintuples Down on Broadcast Dubs – Offers New Primetime Block & Weekly Live Stream Show!


Posted by Michelle on 02/13/2015 at 4:21pm



Flower Mound, TX – (2/13/15) — Just three months after unveiling its Broadcast Dubs, FUNimation is expanding this initiative to include ten new shows for the Winter 2015 season, as well as a brand-new live stream talk show in partnership with ScrewAttack Entertainment.

Fans are taking notice as FUNimation drives the North American anime industry into the future with the new Broadcast Dubs and a new live stream project. “The overwhelmingly positive response to Broadcast Dubs and the performance of the first two series—PSYCHO-PASS 2 and Laughing Under the Clouds—made it clear that we’re on the right path. We realize that this is where the future is headed,” commented FUNimation’s founder and CEO, Gen Fukunaga.

“We’ve listened closely to our fans and have made changes in both our content offering and technical streaming experience. Broadcast Dubs, combined with our Sub Pass, tent pole titles, industry leading library, and technical improvements, have really accelerated subscription streaming growth. We’re committed to giving our fans more anime and more ways to watch.” said Mike DuBoise, EVP & Chief Operating Officer.

On Wednesday, February 18 at 8 p.m. Eastern / 7 p.m. Central, FUNimation will premiere its new two-hour primetime block of anime content, featuring the three hottest Broadcast Dub shows of the season and a new live discussion and recap show, DubbleTalk.

FUNimation’s best-known fan staffers, Justin Rojas and Lauren Moore, will join ScrewAttack’s Chad James and fans for episode recaps, fan questions and answers, special guest appearances, contests, and much more every Wednesday night on Funimation.com and on Twitch.tv.

“We really want to provide an outlet for our fans to come and talk with us about the shows they’re watching right now,” Justin Rojas explained.

The schedule for the Wednesday night block is as follows:

- 8:00 p.m. ET Assassination Classroom
- 8:30 p.m. ET Death Parade
- 9:00 p.m. ET Tokyo Ghoul √A
- 9:30 p.m. ET DubbleTalk

Additionally, the following series will be getting the Broadcast Dub treatment this season:

Phase I

This allows dub fans to experience the shows as soon as possible. They are available exclusively for FUNimation All-AccessPass subscribers, commercial-free and streaming in 1080 HD.

Following the release of the Broadcast Dub, FUNimation will continue to produce a final English dub for the Blu-ray/DVD release, using materials from Japan’s DVD/Blu-ray release. This final version can be different from the broadcast version, including uncut footage not seen in the broadcast.

I might give Psycho Pass 2 Dub a try after watching the first season. Not sure what else to think about this though atm.


I am a fan of Psycho Pass. I cringed at times at the 2nd sesson but when I watched the Dub things made a lot more sense than subbed!

BTW Laughing Under The Clouds was very good too in Dub!

I just heard the news of more broadcast dubs. But, I have only the subtitle subscription so I can't join the fun. Other than that I'm glad that Funi will be doing more of this hopefully other studios can do this too. Also I'm really glad Assassination Classroom is getting a dub.

Out of all the dubs that were announced, I'm mostly curious about Assassination Classroom mainly for Koro-Sensei.
