There is no need for dubbing. The original one is brilliant. What a profanation...

The absolute madmen. They actually are doing this. This is definitely going to be an uphill battle because Konosuba is one of the most fantastically well done Japanese dubs in all of anime, but I could easily see this turning into a dub of Steins;gate quality.

Well, I don't think that this one needs a subbing like Gintama and u know why.

Honestly, i’m pretty upset about this, reason #1 they are using lesser known voice actors who do not have very many Main Character roles or many anime character roles in general for a very popular show accept for two people. #2 Konosuba is way better in sub because the Japanese voice actors fit the character roles perfectly. #3 This dub will probably not even be that good... Honestly i’m not expecting anything from this dub at all.

You know, you could always, oh I don't know, ignore it? There's always a need for dubbing. I'm not gonna watch this show in dub, but a dub merely existing isn't the end of the world. Plenty of people will enjoy it.

Wow! I didn't expect for this to happen to my fav isekai ever but oh well. Hate dubs all you want! I'm still excited for this! I expected to have a better casting choice for Megumin and Darkness but Erica and Cristina will still do a good job as them.
