What Titles Do You Want To See Simuldub-ed for FUNI Summer '17?



  • I presume that the primary reason FUNimation hasn't announced its dub lineup yet is simply because it is waiting for the "ratings" to come in from CR and likewise, and user feedback. There are a ton of anime titles this season. Maybe even record-breaking...

    Or perhaps, they are just lazy and have already decided, but are not telling... But if they are in a state of "indecision" at the moment, perhaps there is still hope to "make a difference".


    So, which titles (assume all CR titles, and non-Sentai/Aniplex/Strike) do you want dubbed? Interesting to see the response...


    Personally, I would vote "Fox Sprit Matchmaker", because the Japanese *dub seems marginal at best, is originally Chinese anime, and if done right by FUNI (key point), could dramatically boost popularity of the Chinese made series. They already announced a dub for Haoliners other title, "A Centaur's Life".


    No matter.



  • I'll second "Fox Spirit Matchmaker", and add "New Game". I didn't see the original, but have read a few reviews. The anime/game/manga/doujinshi producers series are some of my favorites. I can't imagine anything in the genre competing with Genshiken or Shiro Bako, but it doesn't stop me from waiting on the series that can do it.



  • Of the ones that have been confirmed I really wanna see the Simuldubs for A Centaur's Life & Restaurant to Another World. I'd personally also wanna see Simuldubs for Tsuredure Children, The Reflection, & My First Girlfriend is a Gal.

    And just because I'd find these absolutely hilarious if they happened, thrown in Broadcast Dubs for NTR & Chronos Ruler just because they would amuse me so very much.



  • Personally, I'm all in for "Food Porn: The Anime", and I'm really hoping that they decide to dub Fastest Finger First as well.



  • @pleco_breeder

    No need to delay... You Should be Watching New Game 1, on CR, right now... Very good, indeed. Evil, though...

    I am a bit suprised that it wasn't an instant pickup for FUNI as part of the Alliance, but that one may have "some baggage" that is slowing a dub down; perhaps someone else already bid for it. Like with Konosuba, or something.

    In time perhaps, in time... And I reaaly needz my Ace Attorney dub, BTW...



  • well, we probably have 7 or 8 more shows to announce, and I'd be interested in adding Tsure-dure children, In another world w/smartphone, Netsuzou trap, Girlfriend is a Gal, Aho-Girl. the 2-3 I kinda hope get filled by shows from previous seasona. something like Magical Girl Raising Project, Tiger Mask W, Hinako Note, Gabriel Dropout, Konosuba



  • Tenshi no 3p and that smartphone one. I really dislike shorts so I lost interest in ntr.



  • Pretty much just check any simulcast announcement in Crunchyroll that has an English-translated title and has been touched up to not sound so stilted. That's a pretty good hint for what Funimation will be broadcast dubbing

    Hina Logic
    A Centaur's Life
    Restaurant to Another World
    Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun*
    Fastest Finger First*
    Classroom of the Elite

    And then you include the ones we already have confirmed

    18if
    Knight's & Magic
    SAIYUKI RELOAD BLAST
    Lupin the 3rd

    Plus the five left over from last season

    My Hero Academia
    Dragon Ball Super
    Sakura Quest
    Monster Hunter Stories
    Dragon Ball Super

    ...That makes for 15 shows total - 13 if you don't count FFF and Clean Freak

    For what it's worth, last season had 19 total simulcasts. So I'd expect 6-7 more on top of the ones I already mentioned. My predictions:

    Fastest Finger First
    Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun
    My First Girlfriend is a Gal
    In Another World with my Smartphone
    Chronos Ruler
    Gamers!

    And, what the heck, I'll include season 1 of New Game! to the list, since we don't really know who exactly holds the rights to it besides Crunchyroll



  • @Riles

    An interesting theory I will admit... Nevertheless, if the logic of "an English Title means a simuldub; the inverse is not" was an absolute indicator, we be watching "Idol Incidents", "Twin Idols Break" on FUNimation.

    22

    And, we wouldn't have Tsugumomo, cause of course, "Japanese"...

    But interesting theory, nonetheles...



  • There are still a few titles out in the wild, Once Hajimete no Gal gets announced, I'm betting that will be a simuldub title.



  • @Series5Ranger

    YES!.... Especially since that title is still number 3 on MAL most "interesteding" new IP anime rankings; behind Netflix /noobstomp title and Love/Lives:

    https://myanimelist.net/anime/season

    It is falling back a bit on absolute numbers, but still has 48k followers. So, yes....

    YES!.... Especially since that title is still number 3 on MAL

    I doubt anyone cares what that toxic community that only pirates anime thinks...but as much as it pains me I do agree it will probably get dubbed



  • even though netflix has this already. it will be interesting to watch Fate/Apocrypha in Funimation SimulDub



  • @Mrluis613 said in What Titles Do You Want To See Simuldub-ed for FUNI Summer '17?:

    even though netflix has this already. it will be interesting to watch Fate/Apocrypha in Funimation SimulDub

    I think Fate/Apocrypha is still gonna be dubbed but it's a pretty safe bet that it's gonna be a California based dub alongside Fate/Zero and Fate Unlimited Blade Works.



  • If any Idol/Music anime is going to be simudubed, then I'm hoping for authorization that the songs or at least some of the singing would be dubbed for Home video, or if not, have the English Voice actors sing in Japanese.

    I would also like to see a Gabriel Dropout Dub and a Hinako Note dub as well.

    ...And, they did. In addition, according to Wikipedia at least, FUNimation is also listed as primary licensor.

    This anime... A relatively new studio, and it shows. "Sex Show". Lots of panty shots, simulated sex scenes....

    But censored on CR... Like High School DxD. Already the outrage building over there.

    A totally tasteless anime. No wonder it so highly rated on MAL, them virgin noobs...


    Yes, the Japanese sub was nothing special, so I imagine the dub will be better... But seriously, why are you watching this? Do you hate women? This one, is.....

    Regardless, I think I need to make a PSA message when the simuldub releases, or we just have 464783363773 virgins whining on the forum demanding FUNI release the boobies. Perhaps, if at all possible, @sophie , the episode/anime description be tagged with a censor warning? Else, lots of angry, sex depraved trolls will flood ur customer service/forums/social media, as sure as the sun rises in the East...

    No matter.



  • You are the last person that should be making a PSA, so no, please don't do a damn thing



  • @Getchman

    Thanks for volunteering........



  • Funimation announced a good number shows for this summer! In addition to My Hero Academia from last season, I'm looking forward to seeing: A Centaur's Life, A Restaurant to Another World, The Reflection, Gamers!, and New Game!!. To also add to New Game, I was really surprised that they are actually going to dub that series. I've heard so many good things about this show from last year. Hope they get to dub more shows from last year and the shows they announced from the partnership with Crunchyroll. I can't wait to see Bungo Stray Dogs being dubbed! I'm hoping to hear announcements for ReZero, Konosuba, sweetness & lightning, and etc.



  • I had read somewhere there is a conflict which prevented a KonoSuba dub. Don't know how true it is, but would love to see this happen. I had never seen it before watching Season 2 on TV in Japan, but sat up every Wednesday night till 2 a.m. to watch. Absolutely hilarious series, and one of my favorite recent.
