So I take it Penguindrum is getting a dub? I'll probably start watching it once the dub comes out.

Oh, and of course:



I wonder who the ADR Dire-*Sees Stephen Foster* NO! OH GOD NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


Is he behind the dubbing masterpiece of Guin Saga?



If so then I'll just watch the dub for lolz and watch the subbed version the rest of the time when I get the DVDs

The covers epitomize the aesthetics of the show, if not more so

Ninja Scroll getting licensed...? I don't understand, wasn't it already licensed...?

o_____o
That's what I was just thinking since I remember watching it on the syfy channel a few years ago. o_O

License rescue. Re-acquisition. Etc.

I don't normally post them, but these were all announced together, so I decided to just throw it in.

Ninja Scroll? what a waste, they could have chosen a better anime XP

Yessss, MP and TB*.*


The fact is, Ninja Scroll will probably sell much, much better than Penguindrum and Letter Bee combined. It's been out of print for a while and it's getting a blu-ray release and a competent DVD release as well (Manga US was terrible). It's a big title and one that will inevitably help them get profits.

Anyways, I'll be picking up both Penguindrum and Ninja Scroll on blu-ray. Very exciting stuff.
