Viz should have gotten Eureka. Most of the original VA were from the west coast. Crap man, we're probably going to get some no-names voicing the main characters.
hey man the greatest dub ever made was made with almost all no name newcommers (baccano), also made by funimation, it has a good chance of being a good dub

Cool. King of Thorn seems decent. Eureka Seven Ao has potential.

King of Thorn was a good pick I think. Even if it crumbled under some issues, it's a great movie overall and I think it's suited for western audience. Eureka was obligatory indeed, even if AO seems like an unnecessary milkingfest so far.

Eureka was obligatory.

Even an English dub can't make King of Thorn worse than it already is.

Eureka Seven's dub was pretty decent, so I'm okay with this. I hope.

I've never even heard of King of Thorn, though.

Funimation you are my idol of any dubbing company.

I am never really sure how I feel when Funimation acquires an anime. They had FMA Brotherhood in the past and now they have Eureka AO

Funimation.

My heart weeps.
