Is there going to be an English dub for this movie? I read somewhere that there is going to be a German dub releasing on January 26, 2018. So I was wondering if there's going to be an English dub. I know it's a recap movie but it also has it's own original story too according to the descriptions on the movie they said it has an original story along with recaps of the anime.
I finished the first half of Bodacious Space Pirates and thought it was pretty good. Still on my list of things to follow up on when I have the time.
Maybe you know or maybe you don't but BSP is actually owned by Sentai (streamed on Hidive), not Funimation. Beyond that, the western distributors rarely have any influence on whether a show gets a second season or any continuation.
Outside of the anime the only adaptations I think we've received are two manga volumes by Seven Seas, which are based on the movie. I don't think the light novels were ever translated into English, unless there are fan translations out there.
Sorry but that's often how things go in this medium. You get part of a story and the rest is left up to your imagination.
@Doublethree100 Those same routes are available to anyone, even a private individual, if they choose to make a substantial donation to the production. My point from the above post is that original content, either an original script or some other source has to exist before an anime will even be considered. Without that, a pitch will never be made for a production committee to be formed, let alone the option to assist with funding in exchange for rights.
Honestly, I'd like to see it come to pass that Funimation had some regular degree of investment in the type of anime being produced. However, as a strictly localization company (dealing only with theater, streaming, and home video rights), it is highly unlikely to happen. Production committees can rest fairly confidently in knowing that the licenses for those rights will sell for most mainstream releases. For that reason, an additional amount beyond their projected value would likely be the only way it would be considered by the committees.
I know that CR has managed to get a seat on several committees as of late, but not sure of all the details of what was given in exchange. I honestly suspect that some form of agreement was made for North American merchandise distribution beyond licensing fees. However, that is strictly my own speculation. I suspect that the number of foreign companies sitting on these committees will slowly increase as popularity continues to become more mainstream and producers begin to want more say in product decisions. Again, just speculation, but money is always going to be the driving force for any business.
Calm down, calm down! Don’t get your knickers in a knot...
Notice how i contradict myself where i’m putting Sentai down, yet, praise the anime they produce. My dry/ dark humor can also be evidenced here. I myself own K-ON! + Movie, Tamako Market, Nyan Koi, among others from Sentai. I have been very impressed with their work through the years. Thank you Mr. Ledford and Ms. Williams not to mention awesome voice talent from Cassandra Lee, Stephanie Sheh, and Tony Oliver. I wish FUNimation could somehow partner with Sentai. Anyway, when i get paid this Friday, i will do my best to support the campaign despite the paltry earnings i make (laughs) ;-)
Its out of Funimation's control whatever there is a season three of Is This A Zombie? Funimation licenses and dubs anime. They don't make anime. Its up to the original creator and production committee from Japan whatever there is another season.
I didn't see anything on the toolbar to make a petition for everyone to vote if they wanted too. It would be awesome though if all the supporters voted and the creators/owners of Funimation saw how much people appreciated an wanted it back and they actually brought it back.
I just want the BD so I can get it to current format I have original
Box set on DVD and disc are starting to break down a little after so many years I think outlaw star was actually my first box set I still remember taking plastic wrap off it
@Zethus i bought it the day after seeing it on Toonami. I nearly cried watching it. It's a masterpiece. I'm trying to get Your Name, his latest film, to be released theatrically here where we live. So far we have 72 signatures.
I live in Mississippi and Anime rarely shows up in theaters from where I live.
Besides, I mostly buy from Amazon for anime and stuff.
