Or release stuff that has restrictions placed on certain series. Funimation tends to go out of their way to please fans. I don't get the hate at all.


A "we're working on it" would be fine; a "we've dropped it like the dead rotting fish it is" {like Tatami Galaxy} would also be acceptable. No comments on old shows as they only get older is neither.

"Robotics;Notes will be dubbed"
No, I didn't expect it to be Funimation's first subbed only home release but thanks, Funimation, for keeping me abreast on the show that just finished airing.

Maybe I need to fault the quality of the Q and A'ers. Why can't they ask pertinent questions for a change?


The Robotics Notes answer was from a question someone wrote in. They answered a legitimate question that a fan asked.

Just got the blessing to announce I will be returning as Gohan for the Buu Saga of Dragonball Z Kai. No release or broadcast dates for now. For those who overlooked Kai because of the edits on TV, remember its UNCUT on DVD/blu ray. Pretty psyched to return to the role that began my VO career. Recording in a few weeks.

Wait what? Last time I checked ANN it says Kai only has 98 episodes (all of which I own) and it ends with the Cell Saga. Confused

Anyway, I really hope it ends there because the Buu Saga was terrible and Kai is better off without it.

That shows you how great and dedicated a guy Kyle Hebert is. Even though he lives in L.A. now and does most of his work there, he's still willing to travel all the way back to Texas any time he needs to reprise a role. Even though he's admitted that it costs a lot and he usually ends up paying for it out of his own pocket, he loves doing voice work so much it doesn't bother him.

It's a lot more than certain other actors are willing to do. *cough*JeffNimoy*cough

Wow, I can't believe there aren't more VAs willing to pay out of their own pockets to do a job. Those others who expect to get paid FOR DOING WORK are just a bunch of greedy a-holes. Rolling Eyes

One of the forgotten licenses could be coming later this year on home video.

The sub notation has to be typo (meaning the dub could go up for EVS members on June 4th).

Interesting. We Without Wings was one of those strange shows for me where I'm going, "this kinda isn't working for me, but I kinda wanna own it anyway."

Hmm, I wonder. Part of me is excited, but another part of me wants to not over hype myself as a.) who knows how long it'll take em to get to 1 mil. Maybe a month if were lucky? b.) there is always the chance that maybe the announcement may not be THAT amazing, at least not as much as they hype (for all we know it could just be "We got the rights for that new DBZ movie, but I'd like to think it wouldnt be that small an announcement lol)

But hey, time will tell, hopin its a good one Very Happy

I just hope it won't be something lame. They made a big deal about this last time and the announcement turned out to be the home release of Shangri-La. No offense to people who like the show but that series really wasn't worth all the hype.

An unexpected busy month of August (Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail (OVA), Eureka Seven: AO (Astral Ocean), Guilty Crown, Haganai, High School DxD, The Future Diary).

What's else could be scheduled for September (outside of Is This Zombie? of the Dead, LASTEXILE -Fam, The Silver Wing-, and Michiko & Hatchin)? Could August release(s) be delayed to this month? And could we see previously noted as FUNimation streaming licenses getting released later this year?

I'd certainly like to see Funi start coughing up the Ikki Tousen titles.
