I'm interested to see how the dub will turn out (a single trailer can sometimes be quite misleading). For such a hit show, I'd hope that they'd put in more effort than usual to making this sound good.

Anyhow, let's see how long 'till the blind hate starts up in this thread...

Aniplex has confirmed the early listings for a four-part Sword Art Online home video releas. The plans have the four English subtitled/English dubbed Blu-ray sets selling for $112.98 each and the four DVDs at $49.98, dated for monthly release August through November.

I was going to buy the first 12 Episodes of SAO becuase I enjoyed the first arc and hated ALO to no ends; however, I lol'd @ the Blu-ray price and now I say "Fuck that shit."

Don't have cable or dish so yeah....xD While I did like SAO I wouldn't shell out no $112 per pop for 4 volumes I might just stick to the DVDs.

Episode 1 will definitly make a crowd and maybe some new anime fans will come out of it. Good gateway..

but..

I wonder how the western audience is going to react to the romance-type-incest
(assuming they continue to air it that far)

sexual incest in nisomonogatari - no one bats an eye
romance incest in SAO - everyone loses their minds

Oh after watching that trailer I must comment on how misleading it is haha. Alot of people are going to be surprised, in a bad way (at least those who don't know about the show before hand).

It's going to be so popular to lonely delusional 13 year olds. SAO is like the Japanese Twilight in some ways.

Hmm.

A new generation of anime watchers that grow up to like this stuff. Cool.

Well, it's better than no anime watchers.

Good for SAO and its fans.

The whole incest thing probably wont ring well with the majority of the western audiance though. I wouldnt be suprised if the dub downplays it or makes them not really related or something of the sort.

Dubs are very faithful nowadays and this is aimed at an adult audience so I doubt it very much

It'll give me a reason to rewatch the series, instead of following with the crowd's opinion on the show.

Anyways, I'm totally okay with this. As much as I want Fate/Zero to air on TV, this is the timeslot that got Deadman Wonderland good ratings. Toonami know their audience and they're capitalising on it. And that's perfectly okay.

I don't think this will turn out well. Calling it now.

It's going to popular with half-wits who don't know what torrents are.

Already saw the subbed, but might might the dub. Depends on how busy I am at the time.
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

I...I posted this ear....never mind. *sigh* (Just go look in the Sword Art Online series part of the forum....)

Anyways, I'm looking forward to it, though I've only seen 2 episodes of SAO and I didn't care for the 2nd episode much.

I want .hack as well.
And yeah. I see by the end of next year Shingeki no Kyojin, AKA Attack On Titan, being on Toonami. Or at least at some point.

But why no Gurren Lagann? It'd be perfect for Toonami.

It's going to be aimed at adults anyway, so I doubt this'll be a problem.

It may be aimed for adults, but I'm sure Cowboy Bebop was as well....didn't kids watch that anyway?

Regardless though, was merely poking fun here....still wonder if that type of situation would happen.

Good point. I remember I used to secretly watch Adult Swim late at night as a child. I think I remember once watching Yu Yu Hakusho when I was like 6 or something. xD
It'd be interesting how a parent would respond to this.
I hope no moms start sending angry letters to Adult Swim.

Wha...? Toonami aired Deadman Wonderland? That's not one I would EVER have imagined them dubbing or airing. Not saying it was bad, just very much NOT the mainstream stuff Toonami usually shows. Granted I haven't checked up on Toonami for years after getting used to subs (glorious subs), so maybe their stance has changed. Now, SAO fits Toonami perfectly - it's easy to digest.

Yep. Toonami aired Deadman Wonderland. Toonami tries to air popular shows or show people shows they never would have otherwise looked at. Like Casshern Sins.
Also, Toonami has changed considerably. For one, it was canceled in 2008, and Adult Swim revived it in 2012, making it much more Adult oriented, have less censorship, and also have less money, meaning they sometimes have to get cheap shows. The people who run Toonami also have more control over it now.

Good for SAO fans. The new generation of western anime watchers will grow up with SAO just as their predecessors grew up with Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, and Naruto.

When will Accel World air on Toonanmi? It also has a dub. But it is licensed by Viz Media.
