  • @JayHairston Now if only Funimation Will release the lost Bruce falconer track that people have claim Funimation have never been released on cd. Or Bruce himself. Wishful thinking...



  • @JayHairston

    Can someone ye explain why FUNimation insists upon using a ™ for SimulDub™ each time? A simple "SimulDub" need not suffice?

    I quite literally just went "off the road" on this topic several days ago; the very last time ye was @'ed, and now.....

    I needz me Episode *7 of 18if......

    @thegrandalliance Because Funimation owns the trademark to "SimulDub" as in no one is allowed to use that name other than Funimation. That why the TM there.

    Of course, at some point they should be using the ® instead, if the filling is completed.

    Again, @gohan6425 my point isn't why there is a TM per se... The better q is, why? Is it such a big deal to have it filed? Is Aniplex/Sentai really gonna nerf your term?

    They cannot even do the supposed Simuldubs right, anyways. A disgrace to the name. Case in point 18if, AkibaStrip... Hardly a "Simultaneous Dub". More like *WannaDub; but o wait it is delayed again...

    *Broadcast Dub, is more accurate... They been using it for years previously, np. And, O BTW again, they don't TM spam the hell out of that one either, @JayHairston even though they also "own" that one too...

    FUNimation is commin' for ya guns, Sentai and Co...

    ...yet I see no Broadcast Dub™ anywhere. Missing the ™, I think...

    So I ask again, why the ™ on SimulDub™?


    ...As their sacrilegious brand they cling onto so dearly for life, not living up to the hype, I think. A sinking brand impression, and its theirs. Brilliant. Sony's problem now.

    Indeed, as if they are to trademark anything, the real question is y they never seem to have done so with the One to Rule Them All...

  • I am behind. I need to catch up on Centaurs life and start Classroom of the Elitie and Knights and Magic

    They've never claimed to be simultaneous. That itch will never be scratched.

  • If only I could watch Tenshi no 3p here...I really hate renewing my CR sub especially for only 1 show.



  • @Queenira classroom of the elite is really good and so is knights and magic you really need to get on it lol your missing out



  • @deathforge666 I know. Podcast backlog is a journey. I did start tsudere children tho



  • i'm getting a kick out of that one it reminds me of some of the kids i went to highschool with lol



  • Tsudere Children is like the most hilarious and personal attack on my high school years. also it's the Funimation smooth operator derby.

    Austin "Money Man" Tindle is in the lead with Ricco "Less fire, less emo" Fajardo close on his tail with Kyle "who the f is kyle" Phillips bringing up the rear
