Ehhh. From the title, it looks like it might just be more comedy stuff... I was hoping for actual plot. Oh well... probably still going to watch it.

I'm just glad to know when it's going to air. Can't wait for July. :3

And I'm hoping for some Kasen battle action this time around.

AS much as I"m happy to see Izuminokami and Mutsu as the MCs this time around...

--WTF happened to Mikazuki? Because he was featured when this got announced.

--If they're focusing on Shisengumi, where's Kashuu, Yams and Nagasone

--As a Tsurumaru fan, I'm happy he's in this. As a Dategumi fan....none for them.

... Aniplex licensed this... what does that mean for dub cast...




....... honestly, the idea of a CA cast for this makes me so excited. I liked FUNi's cast but still.

I knew Aniplex was gonna get this one as soon as ufotable announced that they were animating this.



As for casting for a dub version....


I think Johnny Young Bosch would make a good Izuminokami.

Johnny Yong Bosch would make a good any of them.

. . . . . . they likely won't dub it, though, unless it has good enough fight scenes to get popular outside of Japan. Pretty boy shows are like... well, you know how people are. Except for Ouran, YOI, and Free, for some reason. But like, TouRabu and Tsukiuta are massive in Japan. (and meanwhile, Japanese people are always surprised when foreigners know Ouran)

It's probably more because the anime is like a tiny piece of the whole franchise, and the rest doesn't get translated officially. Which like... bleh.

I don't really care either way...after the shite job Funi did on Hanamaru, I'm fine with the Japanese actors...especially for Ryohei Kimura and whomever Horikawa's VA is. They iconic now.

But I do think Bosch wouldn't be that bad. When I started playing TR last year, his Ichigo voice was in my head whenever I read Izuminokami's lines...


As for its popularity...if this one has more action, I think it'll go over. We Westerners love our samurai stuff...and ufotable series. Though I'm already tired of 'OMG UFOTABLE DID A FUJO SHOW'....

And goddamn man...I might have to give up my 'EFF AoA' boycott to buy this now....

I didn't dislike FUNi's Hanamaru dub... I think I am a bit lenient because I really like Jad Saxton and that was her first time directing anything, but I think most of the voices fit well enough. Also, there are a few I'm not too fond of in Japanese, actually.

Izuminokami isn't a typical hero type (if only because of his hair and earrings <3) but I still feel like as far as voice acting is concerned, he's "typical-hero" in the sense that the voice actor playing him would use a more-or-less "hero voice". JYB does roles that aren't that so well, I think it would be a waste to cast him, as opposed to someone who can just do that. (Ryohei Kimura also has done a lot of really good characters that aren't that)

(Horikawa's seiyuu is Junya Enoki, I think. Pretty sure I looked it up because he's in Yume100 or something...)
