It's great to see dubs coming out faster than before. But to take on this many at once, I have some doubts that Funimation could handle all of that. I'm still pushing on with subbed episodes during simulcast, but I don't have to wait long for complete rewatch of the shows that I don't plan to buy. Anyway, I'll be following the simulcast dub for High School DxD Born this spring that will no doubt be dubbed seeing how it is one of their best-selling titles, and I'm expecting Attack on Titan to get a broadcast dub on Toonami in 2016.

The current crop of English voice actors (in the U.S.; I can't speak for other regions) is actually pretty good, IMO, and they have this whole thing down to a science at this point, even if there aren't very many of them.


That's a particular annoyance from my point of view... Funi in particular relies on a relatively small cadre of VAs, and while most simply fade into the background of whatever character they're playing - there's a few that always stand out as themselves regardless of what/who they're playing. For me, the latter almost always pull me out of the show and that makes it hard to enjoy.

It appears from Funimation's broadcast dubs, they are starting to use more of their less used VA's, like Alex Organ as Decim in Death Parade. But it also seems they are using some VAs for multiple roles in their broadcast Dubs. Felecia Angelle(Rolling Girls, World Break, Assassination Classroom) and Jad Saxton(Death Parade, Rolling Girls) for example. Felecia is a main character in two of these shows, while Saxton plays supporting roles in both of them. So there still does seem to be some what of a problem of Funimation over using certain voice actors in multiple shows due to a small pool of VAs. From what it seems to me though, LA based studio Bang Zoom, though still having a small pool of VA's,are more likely to introduce more newer VAs. Erica Mendez (voice of Ryuko in Kill la Kill) does not have to many roles in anime, actually I'm pretty sure she has done just as much stuff for western shows as Anime. The new dubbed trailer for Magi season 2 actually introduces completely new VA; this being their first role.

Didn't realise there was already a thread for this, I enjoy the faster dubs since they're using more of their voice actors/actresses we don't normal get to hear too often. Though I'd like to hear more of the others being used but it comes down to who fits the roles for when they get the show.

I just enjoy more shows being dubbed so more chances of shows coming to the uk and usa.

I am worried that turning out dubs too fast will result in a decrease in quality. There have been some legendary dubs in the past, and they took no small amount of time to make. It's good that they are coming out- I still think we should support them, and that the quality will be sure to get better as the market for them keeps growing.
