Yes! I'll probably get it the moment it comes out. I hope they just release it all in a single box set though.

How will tks voice work in the dubs
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

It would be very strange if they don't release it dual audio. I wouldn't jump to conclusions on the lack of a subtitles announcement.

Cool stuff, though. I wonder what they'll do with TK.

I am so buying this on Blu-Ray. If it comes dubbed, then there will probably be an option for it to be subbed. Isn't that how it is with the other anime DVD's.

Strange that it's not getting a sub-only release first. I guess they're finally realizing which ones deserve a dual-audio release the first time around.

It's nice that Angel Beats will be coming over here.

Hope the dub is good. I doubt they'll dub the songs though (which is a good thing), it would be too much work.

I can die happy now. ; w ;

Hopefully the voice acting will be good though. Clannad's dub by them was God awful, so hopefully they'll be wiser on this.

And also, subs hopefully?

I hope they bring other stuff like Madoka Magica over here, that would be pure awesome!

Great news, I'll definitely be buying it. Though I am wondering about TK's voice, seems kind of redundant to dub it plus it won't be as good anyway ┐(-。ー;)┌ .

Meh, that just means I get to watch something else at Anime Boston >.>

And hey, at least their Highschool of the Dead dub wasn't all too terrible... Although... Clannad was horrible... They kinda messed up one of my favorite anime.... >_>

All I'm really concerned about is how Iwasawa's and Yui's singing and voice acting will go.

This just went on the top of my "to buy" list. Though I do hope there are subs as I prefer them to dubs 9 times out of 10.

Why the hell do they insist on dubbing everything they can get their hands on. F.

Terrible version of their synopsis, also. Makes it sound like an all action Bruce Willis movie when it's actually NOT.

I'll probably buy this, but I'll wait for it to drop in price. It'll take a long time to get to the price I am willing to pay for this. As for dubbing it, I'll watch the SUB anyways, but owning a DUB / SUB version doesn't hurt.

Yeah its pretty much impossible if they just release the dub on the track. I'd assume companies would only do that if they couldn't even get their hands on the show. xD

I'll be skipping this one. Angel Beats! was nice (and knowing Sentai, the cover art will be absolutely gorgeous) but I didn't loooooove the show.
Still, Sentai will likely make a lotta money from this. xD

(Also expecting dubbed over T.K. Only because a lot of his lines are total Engrish).
If they can turn a small creature's squeaking peep sounds (in Xam'd) from a VA to a literal squeaking sound effect (rrmg I was so annoyed with that), they'll dub T.K over. ._.

Woohoo very very exciting news to me. What makes it even better is that it will be on blu-ray. I only wish they would release Clannad on Blu-ray, that would be the best news. I love how Sentai has brought over amazing anime from Key animation. One of the best news for me so far this year. I too cant wait to continue my Key animation collection.

What I think is that they use the original voice of TK, but it will be more fun if they make TK Japanese speaking, although his looks make then no sense anymore.

Dubbing? What the hell, why would they get rid of the strongest point (apart from the incredible soundtrack) of the series. Thanks, but no thanks.

I personally loved the Clannad dub. It was the packaging that pissed me off.

Well anyways glad its getting a dub I hate buying subbed-only DVDs.

+1

Seriously they can just switch the track if they don't like the dub its not that hard. Besides most dubs today I've seen were either excellent, good, or decent. If they want to see terrible dubs so much go watch anime from the early days of dubbing now THATS terrible.
