I wonder which recording studio will dub Squid Girl. I hope it's dubbed from New York. I hardly hear anything from them lately.

>De geso
>English dub

inb4 there's no "de geso". I want to keep my geso talk, de geso.

Even further, no blu-ray? Ah well, I don't have anything that plays Blu-Ray. But there's nothing in between BD and DVD that looks good enough. Sadly the only CRT TV left in this house is in my parents' bedroom. But still, an English dub where she probably won't be saying "de geso?"

Get over it. Bluray, DVD, it's still the same funny show. It's not like Ika Musume is known for its amazing visuals.


i cant stand regular dvd now after watching other movies on bluray. even if its not amazing visuals. it just looks so shoddy

I geso.

Normally I'm not a fan of puns, but this was lol-worthy! I applaud you good sir. Can't wait to see how this dub goes.

Well that was retarded of them. I doubt it will sell at all. It's way to "WTF japan" for western audiences.

I wonder what the dub will be like.

Still mad at Media Blasters after they quit halfway through with Eiken manga.

Well I was surprised Squid Girl was picked up, I thought it wouldn't be picked up at all. And I was surprised further that it will get an English dub and who picked it (Media Blasters is known to pick up lots of anime with numerous fanservice and ecchi, but they did pick up non-fanservice shows in the past).

Speaking of which, Sandy Fox voicing the title character would be awesome.

Eeeww a dub. Still gonna buy it though, just won't watch the dub.
The fuck is Media Blasters?


An anime company. =/

You don't hear much from them anyways so I wouldn't be surprised if people don't really know about them.

As for this I'm going to get it cause 6 episodes for $25 dollars is cheap plus its going to have a dub I'm happy about that since sub-only DVDs suck and have like no extras to make it worth buying imo. Dx
6 episodes is still much better than the pitifull 2 episodes the japanese get. Heck, sometimes they just get 1 episode.

Exactly! all of the worst anime have been getting licensed. Finally something I would consider buying.


I am sooooo with you on that! I can't believe a lot of the crappy anime are getting licensed more than the good ones! Thankfully Ika Musume got a license (and a dub to boot) and I'm definitely gonna buy it!

I was amused.

This show was surprisingly good; not amazing but better than I expected.

Makes more sense than some of the other licenses I have seen lately (Working!!) and hopefully won't be a total waste of money for Media Blasters.

I doubt I will be buying it, though.
