All I want now is for Sentai to dub their Anime Strike licenses.

Which titles are they? Is that everything that has been on Anime Strike or just select titles.

It's a big chunk of them. Pretty much everything minus Noitamina shows and that other block Amazon bought streaming rights from. It includes shows like Kabukibu and Made in Abyss. Sentai has them all listed on their site.

I do know which Anime Strike titles Sentai needs to dub: Sword Oratoria, Made in Abyss, Princess Principal, Land of the Lustrous and Umaru-chan R. Armed Girl's Machiavellism, Grimoire of Zero, Love and Lies, Just Because! and Girls' Last Tour might also get dubs.

I want mainly Just Because! And Hitorijime my hero, since these are the ones I'd actually buy, but Sentai actually dubbing more shows is always a good thing. Before Sentai picking up a show was scary because 90% of them went straight to sub-only. They seem to have stopped doing that.

I'm also hopeful for Hitorijime since they liked and responded to my comments quite a few times now on Twitter. I even got the *this request as been heard*.

Oh I really want Made in Abyss and Princess Principal dubbed, out of the 2, I want the latter more, since it is set in an English speaking country(just don't get Monica Rial doing her god awful English accent again).

If you look at their catalog there was a time (2012-2013) when Sentai dubbed almost 70% of their shows. Then they cut back their dubbing output to around 30%. In the last year they have upped their dubs rate to about 50%

Yeah, I'm pretty sure what they do nowadays is just dub things that were somewhat popular during simulcasts and that they think will sell. While shows that were relatively dead on arrival and unlikely to push many units get a subs only release. They've actually more or less said this on their social media accounts as they typically respond to "you should dub XXXX" by telling them they will if there's enough demand.

I think a lot of those titles people listed above will likely get a dub eventually due to their popularity. Sentai isn't anywhere near as fast as Funimation is with dubs, though.

If you are just talking about how quick dubs are produced, Funimation is the best at it because of their broadcast dubs. If you are talking about disc releases with dubs, Sentai usually releases their disc releases faster than Funimation.
