aww, no KimiTodo dub. D;

Still. I've seen the packaging and extras with their releases before and they are GORGEOUS so I know it's worth the buy...but I'm still disappointed about the lack of dub D;
I do still hope they eventually make enough money to go back and re-dub the series they've licensed, because they've got some big titles under their belt and it'd be a shame for them to have no dub at all.

Also, I don't understand why people complain when series they don't like get licensed. No-one's going to force you to buy it. :/

Now how big is this art book? Is it a few pages or is it something like 100+ pages? Will these be translated into English or will it be kept in Japanese?


1. It's the size of the packaging.
2. It wont have loads of pages, the 2 I got with the Toradora volumes have 26 pages each. Both books are hard backs, and are well made.
3. English.
Yup that is worth buying and I want it in BD.

Well ok then I guess I'll buy it then, but I wonder what I will do with my subbed versions if they really will go back and dub their library later?

Sadly the Pandora Hearts ones might be out of print. Oh well I can always get a bigger artbook for like $60 dollars. I seen it last year at an anime convention, but I only had $80 to spend that year. *sad face*

Edit: I changed my mind after I read NiS isn't going to dub any of their anime ever. Which sucks since Pandora Hearts would have sold well as a dub. Nope not buying any of their anime now. Lets hope they stay away from 07 Ghost!

Damn it! That means no dub for Kimi ni Todoke. I was so looking forward to get it licensed by any companies that dub their anime but not NIS! I'm so disappointed. I know they're new but still, I really want them to dub the anime they license.
I only buy anime that has both dub and sub. (Pokemon movies are an exception for me)
Considering th crappy dubs they do for their games, I think anyone can agree that no dub it's better. They don't have the resources for quality dubs.

So Basically......

KIMI NI TODOKE ISN'T GONNA BE DUBBED?

Sadly no since this is NIS and they just got into the anime business. I'm just saddened that Pandora Hearts will never be dubbed. I might as well buy it anyways since its looking pretty bleak for it ever getting one. I'm really starting to loose faith in the American anime industry cause a few years back all we got were dubs (well for the most part) now its all subtitled shit that for the most part have no extras to make it appealing to buy plus bland DVD covers.

Aw, that sucks..... I was hoping it would be dubbed by Funimation, or something... *sigh* >__________<;


I know man same here, but I kinda figured it was going to be subbed only anyways I was just hoping Sentai would have gotten it instead since they eventually go back and dub their series if they sell well.

Strange, I was talking to a friend the other day about NIS America, I was saying they're probably going to be huge soon as they're getting some quality series'. Then, like 2 days later they come out with Kimi ni. ME GUSTA, I AM PSYCHIC.

Never heard of their other show mind, taking risks with that most likely.

Eww I hate subbed only DVDs, but I might buy it if it has good extras. =D

You'll get a poster and an art book with the first volume, and and another art book with volume 2. The art books usually have original cast interviews and shit like that, as for extras on the discs you'll just clean OP's and ED's.

Now how big is this art book? Is it a few pages or is it something like 100+ pages? Will these be translated into English or will it be kept in Japanese?

i don't really see a market for it though. as i explained earlier, it's a show full with showa references so it's kind of hard to get the jokes if you didn't grow up during that time period, but hey, i fucking loved the show, so i'm picking it up for sure.


For some unknown reason, a 24 year old guy, myself got tons of the references, I mean, WACKY RACES!!!

Kimi ni Todoke is an autobuy, Enma-kun, I am going to have to see what it comes with, plus be nice to get good subs with it finally.
