Why are you intent in other people's misery anyway. Besides, Gintama would totally bomb in America. We must admit it only has a niche appeal.


It's not just about watching the people on here whine about it(which is somewhat hilarious). I actually would rather watch it dubbed. Maybe, maybe not. Hard to tell what will be a hit in America and what won't.
Well, it's not impossible. You just need to take a good look at what sells and what shows grab the most viewers. I don't think the Online anime communities, like MAL, represent the mainstream community too well.

Crap, SC was one of the best dubs out there. I guess I should try and find the original before they destroy it. :|

when it's fully dub, funi only releases it how it is. they don't overdub it. unless its new (if Yoite gets Vic's voice, i'm gonna die)

But didn't they do that with DBZ?

FUNi only changed the DBZ dub when they released the uncut version. Besides an article on ANN says they are only distributing Samurai Champloo.

Eva at last. *looks at his DVD which was OMFG released in NZ before the US.*

Jan 1, 2009 5:52 AM by BasakaNZ

New Eva ftw; glad Funi finally got and announced this one. Old dub cast plz.

Jan 1, 2009 1:24 AM by Anomalous

Well, Soul Eather is definitely not surprising, but Eva kinda is.

I would guess that this "new" one wil be something completely anticlimatic

Dec 31, 2008 10:47 PM by MintAluka

I think there will be one more. There is an extra space above that girls head don't know her name, but its there.

Dec 31, 2008 10:34 PM by Mario1-7

Glad to see Slayers and Eva up there. Now they just need to get Lina's voice back in Lisa Ortiz's hands.

funi isn't one to trust. 12 ≠ 10

If you count both Slayers seasons separately, it's 13.

I've been fairly pleased with the event. I'm only buying 4 of the 12 announced - Nabari no Ou, Oh! Edo Rocket, Soul Eater and Evangelion 1.0 (a double-dip).

I don't trust FUNimation either... they'll close 2008 out with Evangelion... but beginning 2009... hmm. I guess we'll know Midnight CST or 1am EST. The possibilities are intriguing. Very, very sneaky.

Sweet news to end the year. the only 3 titles I really give a damn about get an R1 release (the others being the 2 new Slayers series).

HAIL SPIKE SPENCER!!!!!

Why do you guys think there is more?

Dec 31, 2008 6:56 PM by Maora

Why do you guys think there is more?

and Attacking me when I am not here eh well have at you! Any anime with mechs FAIL times 20. FACT!

Dec 31, 2008 6:51 PM by Mario1-7
