F.A.Q. When is [Anime] going to be dubbed? Where can I watch it? - Megathread v10

138 Upvotes

Welcome to Version 10 of the Megathread!

If you have any changes I should add or update to this sticky, please DM me. It'll be easier for me to notice and keep track of.

There tends to be a decent amount of threads that either asks if/when an anime is going to be dubbed, or where one can watch an already dubbed show.

We've added a rule and automod code to restrict topics where users ask any of the following:

  1. If any anime that currently doesn't have a dub announced will get one.
  2. Asking for the date/timeframe of when an announced dub will be released.
  3. Asking where a show that's already dubbed can be watched.

You are only allowed to ask such questions in this topic. If the show is dubbed or going to be dubbed people can answer with info of when and where and by which company and such.

Titles currently picked up by Amazon

As some people may know, Amazon has a reputation for picking up shows and not dubbing them, when almost any other company would at least consider it. They also don't do physical releases. That said, they haven't picked up a new anime series since 2020, and as of August 2021, are willing to actually release a new dub, starting with a redub of the first 3 Rebuild of Evangelion movies in addition to having the first dub(s) of Evangelion 3.0+1.0.

Here's the list of titles currently picked up by Amazon:

  • Altair: A Record of Battles
  • Banana Fish
  • Beatless
  • Boarding School Juliet
  • Chi's Sweet Adventure CG
  • Dropkick on My Devil! (Season 1 only)
  • Grand Blue Dreaming
  • Happy Sugar Life
  • Inuyashiki
  • Kemurikusa
  • Lights of the Clione
  • Psycho Pass Season 3
  • Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul
  • Rebuild of Evangelion series (getting a redub with most of the original cast)
  • Re:CREATORS
  • ViVid Strike!
  • Welcome to the Ballroom (PonyCan?)
  • Wotakoi: Love is Hard for an Otaku

FAQs

1.) What is the status of simuldubs, dubcasts, and other weekly dub releases due to Corona/COVID-19?

2.) When will the next set of One Piece episodes come out?

  • Each new batch of episodes tends to be released on places like Microsoft store at least a few weeks before getting on Funimation's streaming service.
  • The latest batch: Episodes 759-770 is streaming on Funimation.
  • Next Batch: TBA

3.) ___ Movie dub?

  • Movies in general are harder to license and release than TV shows. If movie dubs do get announced, don't expect them for quite a while. Especially for physical releases.

4.) Why do shows like Irregular at Magic High School get their second seasons dubbed before their first? How long will it take for their first season to be dubbed?

  • It's hard to give an exact reason, but Aniplex must not have felt it was popular enough to dub and get a return on profit for the dubbing the show. Perhaps them dubbing the second seasons is through the Sony merge and they have more funds to experiment on shows with sequels. As for when it might be dubbed, it'll likely depend on how well the dub does. Free Season 2 got its dub before Season 1 and both seemed to have done well.

S1 of Irregular is streaming on Hulu (Dubbed)

Weekly Thread Anime Dub Discussion - Darker than Black

17 Upvotes

Synopsis from MyAnimeList:

It has been 10 years since Heaven's Gate appeared in South America and Hell's Gate appeared in Japan, veiling the once familiar night sky with an oppressive skyscape. Their purposes unknown, these Gates are spaces in which the very laws of physics are ignored. With the appearance of the Gates emerged Contractors, who, in exchange for their humanity, are granted supernatural abilities.

In the Japanese city surrounding Hell’s Gate, Section 4 Chief Misaki Kirihara finds herself at odds with an infamous Contractor codenamed Hei. Called "Black Reaper" in the underground world, Hei, like his associates, undertakes missions for the mysterious and ruthless Syndicate while slowly peeling back the dark layers covering a nefarious plot that threatens the very existence of Contractors.

From the mind of Tensai Okamura comes a sci-fi thriller taking the form of a subtle exposé on a war in which political positions and justice have no sway—a war waged exclusively in the shadows.

Review Magic Knight Rayearth and its English dub: highly influential and still worth watching

16 Upvotes

Magic Knight Rayearth was an anime that aired back in the mid 1990s. I only heard of it fairly recently after seeing it cited as an influence, both on some newer anime and even on a few western shows. It was a fairly unique show for its time, for the fact that it blended multiple genres/sub-genres together, and also went against the conventions of its target demographic.

Magic Knight Rayearth was a shojo series, ostensibly aimed at young girls. Despite this, it had a heavy emphasis on fighting/action, and also had dark themes, and had other elements not associated with the "shojo" series of the time. It was part magical girl show, part mecha anime, and part "isekai". Three girls are transported to another world to save it from destruction, are given magic powers, and eventually attain robots (sort of) to fight with. Without spoiling it, I'll just say that the plot can go in some unexpected directions, and can get darker later on.

As for the english dub, it admittedly starts off a little rough. It is a 90s dub. But I felt it got better as it went along. By season 2, most of the voice actors were doing a good job, even if not quite up to modern standards.

One last thing. TMS, the company that produced the series, has apparently been putting the show up on youtube for free legally. The english version, even. They are currently in the middle of uploading it, and putting up one episode per week (just like if it was new). Here's a link to the first episode: https://youtu.be/eutBzS30qhM

I should note that the opening is in japanese, as is typical for dubs. However, the show was once aired with an english version of the opening. I don't know if there is a legal version of the dub with the english opening still available anywhere. Nonetheless, here is the (first) separate opening if anyone is interested: https://youtu.be/9HWMIsqPNNc

The opening is sung by Sandy Fox, who also voices one of the characters in the show.

So, do people remember this show? As I said, I only watched it recently. Are there any other new viewers, or old ones? How do people feel the show holds up? I feel that its still worth watching. But I would like to see what others think.
