Cheer Boys and Kingdom are on Crunchyroll
@gohan6425 because Kodansha isn't really an anime licensor and is probably only releasing them in English is to boost the manga sales.
"Legal" what's so hard about commissioning voice actors sending them to a dub studio and have them dub it for you.
they don't have the rights to so Kodansha could sue or lock Funimation out of any of their future content.
Tgat did it for Attack On Titan JR
That's a spin-off not a OVA
Not to mentioned the other show that's got ova before.
It depends on the context. If it's a bonus episode included on the DVD/Blu-ray release then it's probably the same contract (or at least the same company) while when bundled with manga it's not connected to the anime at all. Essentially what these are is Kodansha contracted (probably) WIT to make some special episodes they could bundle with manga volumes to boost the sales of those volumes.
These bonus episodes are very rarely ever licensed in English for even a sub only release. Often fansubs get released (I'm sure these will get fansubs) but that's about it.
Specifically Funimation or is Crunchyroll fine too? If only Funimation I remember laughing a lot at School Rumble (it got more serious near the end though). Love Tyrant (dub here sub on CR) has some great moments as well but I wasn't laughing all the way though. Plus some for raunchy humor there's Prison School and Shimoneta.
If Crunchyroll is fine early Gintama is great (Funimation only has S3 dubbed). I also enjoyed I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying (2 seasons of 13 2 minute episodes).
Apparently .hack//Roots went up yesterday http://www.crunchyroll.com/hackroots. I never saw an announcement for it on Crunchyroll but happened to see someone else mention it.
Edit: more shows
Edit: KumaMiko (which is sub only I believe), Sasami Magical Girls Club and Basilisk are also going up today. Also Koi Koi Seven is apparently a Disotek show my bad.
How come some titles are just licensed with no intention of dubbing them in the first place, even if the fans want the anime dubbed?
This is your only question any of us here can answer.
In the eyes of a company (remember Funimation is a company) what do you think is better? Making no money (not licensing it) or making money (licensing it). For what ever reason they chose/weren't able to dub it yet by licensing it and releasing it sub only they still can make money off it.
You have to remember anime is a niche especially in the west. Only watching dubs is an even bigger niche (I'm not looking down on anyone who is dub only I am just stating facts). Most people seem to have their preference but are fine watching either sub or dub. Dubbing everything is not financially sound but you might find enough fans who will buy a sub only release to recoup the license costs.
Huh? Where did you get the idea it was not being dubbed in the first place?
The shop only seems to list "Kiddy Girl-AND The Complete Series - BD/DVD Combo (SUB ONLY)" so unless they screwed up the title I'd say it's a pretty safe assumption.
