Even an English dub can't make King of Thorn worse than it already is.

I am never really sure how I feel when Funimation acquires an anime. They had FMA Brotherhood in the past and now they have Eureka AO

Eureka Seven's dub was pretty decent, so I'm okay with this. I hope.

I've never even heard of King of Thorn, though.

King of Thorn was a good pick I think. Even if it crumbled under some issues, it's a great movie overall and I think it's suited for western audience. Eureka was obligatory indeed, even if AO seems like an unnecessary milkingfest so far.

Viz should have gotten Eureka. Most of the original VA were from the west coast. Crap man, we're probably going to get some no-names voicing the main characters.

hey man the greatest dub ever made was made with almost all no name newcommers (baccano), also made by funimation, it has a good chance of being a good dub

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me
