1130 Boondocks
1200 DN
1230 Blood +
0100 GITS 2nd GIG

They're probably going to give it (whoever dubs Bleach) more time to dub more and eventually bring it back later.

That's most likely Boondocks before Death Note.

And with Bleach, you're probably right: [adult swim] either only acquired the first 52 episodes or the dub does not have enough new episodes at the current time for the network to air a whole chunk of them at once.

Bleach will be back, as it was a success by [adult swim] anime ratings' standards.

What about Bleach? =\

Not much of a surprise and I'll probably watch it.
At least with this I can get some of my friends to finally finish the series.

LOL @ dub haters.

JUST DON'T WATCH IT DUBBED, THEN?

Agreed XD lol


What makes you think that this is a bad thing? :P

They've already picked the dub cast - but I didn't recognize any of them. :/

Sep 25, 2007 7:49 AM by hounddog

I cant think of any dub voice actors that would be good for Light any ideas who they might pick?

Sep 24, 2007 9:45 PM by Fujin

As long as they keep the first opening, I'll at least watch that... I liked the song for it and the way it made the death note seem like some forbidden fruit that Light was taking a bite out of. :P

But the dub will most likely be good; I've never had a problem with Adult Swim dubs.

They have the trailer on Youtube....it only has Light's voice and L's computerized voice in it, so I can't comment on the overall suckines of it yet, but they made Light sound like a dork. :x Oh well.


It was long ago revealed that the actors used in that teaser trailer are NOT the final voice cast for the dub.

And wow, this thread reeks of "ZOMG ALL ENGLISH DUBS SUX0RZ".

I'm thinking they're going to have a little trouble airing the "What's Up People?!" opening unedited.


Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll edit it out entirely...

Shall I take bets on them getting Claymore and Darker Than BLACK? (Open for other suggestions, too. xD)
