That is if they dub it since most of Sentai's dubs are hit or miss for the most part. I actually didn't expect Sentai to license TWGOK. Then again, both Sentai and Funimation will license almost anything these days.

Why do they keep on bothering? I can't imagine them making a good profit unless the voice actors get paid the minimum wage.

Looking at what David Williams of ADV films said back in 2003, about most of the anime's getting licensed will be very good for outside of asia viewers. still All is lost since the quality is gone mainly because of the horrible DUBs, be it spanish, english, russian, German etc. If they are in the end after for money, they should just do subs for 10+ languages xP but i guess all is good as it helps the Anime Industry :P

The dub industry obviously does well enough on account of it being an INDUSTRY and all. There are people out there who like their dubs, and they have the right to em.

Soredemo was good. I might be willing to buy it if I have some spare cash.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Akikan? Why Akikan?

Why not license Kure-nai instead?

Oh well, at least SoreMachi is good. Oh, and none of this really matters to me.

Will buy Kami Nomi if dubbed

Could care less for the other two. I suppose they will be subbed only since they sound like niche titles.

Will buy the Towa no Quon movies regardless if subbed or dubbed since they are movie/movie shorts and I make an exception to those.
