They said that the dub will be simulcast with normal?

So the dub will be released before subs? Who's going to watch the dub over the english sub? haha


A hell of a lot more people will watch the dub than thy ever will the sub.


Depends on the VAs I'd imagine.
thats not even gonna matter that much, this will air on toonami so itll get a bunch of casual watchers

And even the about who the VA's will be, judging by how good bebop and champloo's dubs were and the fact they are putting so much focus on the north american release im sure it'll be a fine dub.

The voice cast for this is awesome so far! Junichi Suwabe is a fantastic choice for Dandy. Getting more hyped up for this every day...

Love the Op, love the concept, easily the most anticipated anime for me in a loooong time.

More things to look forward to in the Spring! Everything about this seems like great things that go great together but only time will tell if they still have their touch.

The OP is friggin' awesome indeed, basically all my anticipations for 2014 rest with this series for now.
