Clannad Along With 4 Other Shows Getting (SHOCKER) DUBS!

Well, in a surprise announcement no one saws coming because none of this information was leaked out earlier this year.

Clannad (season 1), Blue Drop, Ghost Hound, Legend of the Dark King, and Tears to Tiara will all be getting dubs along with a upgrade program for people who bought it subbed earlier.

No word yet on the cast, but expect an announcement soon. Let’s hope the cast is decent. Well, really anything better than the Burst Angel dub is fine by me. I found that to be terrible.

I myself may not be the biggest dub fan, but since I can upgrade for a small fee, I see no reason not to at least upgrade anyways. At least if it comes with some nice extras like commentaries or something.


Clannad Might Be Getting A Dub

Note: This ^ is not Kotomi. This is Nagisa.

So, according to the cast announcement for Halo Legends, Emily Neves has a credit as Kotomi for an English dub.

Am I surprised? Yes. Do I plan to rebuy if it is true? No. I may like dubs, but Nagisa (Mai Nakahara) is so cute with her current voice actress, and Kotomi’s (Mamiko Noto) is perfect for her.

But, I guess this gives the “I IS NOT BUYINZ A DVD DAT IZ SUBZ OWNLIES BECAUSE FANSUBS R FREE ALL REDDY” a reason to not say that anymore. Not that they would buy it anyways because obviously they have no respect for the companies anyways.

I guess we may be hearing something about his soon though since most anime companies seem to have a hard time keeping things secret. (This is a prime example)

Section 23 Gets Gintama, Living For The Day After Tomorrow, And Hidamari Sketch X 365

I never started watching Gintama on Crunchyroll, but I might as well pick up the DVDs when they are released. If you want a summary of Gintama, you can go to my earlier post here.

Hidamari Sketch X365 is a continuation of the first season and it takes place in Yuno’s second year of school.

Living For The Day After Tomorrow Shoko wanted to be older, and she gets that wish, but at the expense of Karada, Shoko’s brothers ex-girlfriend, losing year on her age. Now the 2 are the same age and must get along in Junior High. Can they make it threw together though.

All these will be coming out in April, with Hidamari Sketch X 365 Complete Collection being $39.98 Along with Living For The Day After Tomorrow being the same price. Gintama Collection 1 will also be the same price.

Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss Licensed By Section23

Hidamari_Sketch_x_365Well, 3 more anime titles were licensed by Section23. Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss are all set for a January 2010 release.

Hidamari Sketch is more or less a slice of life show, which I like for some reason. So I will probably pick it up. There isn’t much of a story, except a girl named Yuno goes to the Art School she wanted to get into and she lives her life with her friends there.

Glass Mask is the story of Maya and Ayumi competing in the performing arts to be the best I think. I don’t know if this will be good or not, so I may skip it if it sucks and gets bad reviews.

Neo Angelique Abyss is another monster of the week show I think. Angelique is a normal girl until she discovers she is a purifier I think, and they kills these life draining monsters called Thanatos.

Over all, the licenses may be good. Hidamari Sketch is one I look forward too, but not sure about the others yet.

Full press release is just a link below.

Sentai Filmworks Licenses Polyphonica, Special A, And Blue Drop

41c036d72499f6c5a044dfafJust one day after ADV more or less transferred to another company, Sentai Filmworks (part of former ADV) has licensed 3 more titles for release.

Polyphonica is set for and Blue Drop are set for release on November 17, while Special A is set for release on November 10th. So not much of a wait for all you impatient people.

More than likely they will be subtitle only releases, which I don’t mind, but may cause some special people not to buy. Though, there is still a chance it might be dubbed considering how much people complain about that. Either way if fine by me.

For more information, you can read the press release.

ADV Shuts Down? Not Sure, But It Sure Seems Like That (UPDATE: All Titles)

adv15Well, all I can say is shit and WTF. Another anime/manga company goes down, leaving only a few more left. Come on you dumb asses that aren’t buying, stop getting fansubs for licensed anime. Seriously, if I can afford it, you can too.

As for the ADV shutting down part, AEsir holdings will gain rights to all a select group of titles that ADV controls, SXION 23 will be distributing those titles, and Valkyrie Media Partners will be handling The Anime Network.

Ok, so it’s not totally shutting down, but still, I get the feeling we won’t have much longer to wait. I’m not sure if the titles they still have will still be released, I guess we will have to wait till more information is out, but still, this is a disheartening announcement any true anime fan would not want to hear.

Oh well, as long as I still have Nozomi, FUNimation, Media Blasters, and Bandai, I will be somewhat alright, I think.
