Finally they announce the date! I've been waiting in anticipation since they announced the license. Can't wait for Season 2, never got to see the end. Super GALS Season 2 is the only thing I own by Right Stuf and they did an excellent job on it so I'm really looking forward to this release.

I understand that while this may be a niche title why is there no English dub?

The story is in ENGLAND for goodness sake!

Too expensive for Right Stuf, I guess.

It would likely be to expensive for anyone to justify, not just RighStuf. It's a niche among niche title and I can't see it selling anywhere near enough to recoup the costs regardless of who dubs it.

Nope. Everyone else is right, dubbing is expensive and isn't part of Right Stuf's business model for making shows like this work here.

Indeed, at one panel at AnimeIowa 2007, Johnathan Klein of New Generation Pictures said he approached Shawne Kleckner of Rightstuf about dubbing Emma, since NGP worked on other heavily British series like Hellsing and ROD TV. The talent and the desire to make a dub was there, but the potential money wasn't.

There is an English dub, done by Animax-Asia. The usual suspects actually sound better with British accents than the near-American ones they usually do.

While it is indeed a niched title, it's far from "niche among niche," for the latter wouldn't be licensed overseas at all. Razz
