This is nuts!
Here I was this week, thinking ''it's taking them quite a while, I recall they started much earlier last season'' but then it turns out they're dubbing nearly everything! And starting with Death Parade and Assassination Classroom, both of these being the kind of shows Funi does a kickass job at dubbing!

Though it's strange that they're dubbing the second season of Tokyo Ghoul first, and ever weirder in Yona's case.

In any case, it's great that Funimation is working they're hardest to keep dubs relevant

Dang Funimation. Well I expected the ones on Wednesday to be dubbed given their the most popular of the season. But everything else was a pleasant surprise. Especially Absolute Duo since along with Assassination Classroom they are my babies this season!

To be honest. I am neutral. I like my anime English Subtitled and English Dubbed but usually prefer Subtitles since that is the language or type that is right there available especially for new airing anime.

I hope it works out which would be great for the people who only will take a look at an anime if it is dubbed. I used to be like that until I saw so many cool anime everywhere which were only Subbed and I gave into reading Subtitles and few months later just grew accustomed to English Subtitled anime with Japanese audio.

I was shocked with the number they were dubbing. I'm glad they are dubbing most of the shows I am currently watching. Rolling Girls, Death Parade, Assassination Classroom, Maria, Yuri Kuma Arashi. Might be asking for too much but i was kind of hopping they would dub Yatterman.

Now I am kind of regretting getting the Sub pass. I still have a week left on it, I'll probably switch to full member just for the dubs.

Yeah. I guess this would have been great when I was into only dub.

Good luck! I am sure they will be good. Most of FUNimtion's Dubs are.

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


The first choice I can think of is Todd Haberkorn, cause he already sounds surprisingly close to Koro-Sensei.

Was just thinking, and please correct me if I am wrong, but I have been under the assumption that, in the past, if Funi announced they were going to dub a series, that would near enough guarantee said series for home release?

So now that it looks like Funi are going have broadcast dubs as a regular occurance, will it:

1) Increase the number of series getting home releases?
2) Speed up the process of home releases coming out?

1. No
2. No

Both assumptions are incorrect.

- Does having a show on #DubbleTalk guarantee it will have a Blu-Ray/DVD release?

- The two actually don't correlate. But! Once we have information on which shows are getting BR/DVD releases we'll let you know!

I'm hoping for J. Michael Tatum or Ian Sinclair as Koro-sensei, Brina Palencia as Nagisa Shiota, and Jamie Marchi as Bitch-sensei.

Funimation just released the dub cast for AssClass. Sonny Strait will be playing Koro-sensei.

Don't think his voice in the dub clip is goofy enough for Koro-sensei though.
