I am guessing Sentai is starting to use AMC money because at this rate they will at least license 10 Summer shows.

And the problem is in dubbing. Sentai didn't want to compete with CR/Funi in dubbing scene and not every shows that Sentai license will get dub and even not dubbing an anime that was viral like Kongming. since they got new Tokyo Mew Mew i'm afraid that Sentai not DUBCAST it.

It would be nice if Sentai/HIDIVE dubbed more simulcasts. But it is more important to me to have a company that can compete with Crunchyroll.

The problem why Sentai's dubbing capacity is still so low is that they only have the same three main ADR directors (Kyle, John and Shannon) for their shows, and it's pretty rare for another person who works for Sentai to be in a directing role. In addition, they are comfortable sticking to their established small talent pool.

Finding new ADR Directors might be hard given that they are in the same state as Funimation. There was a panel a few years ago with Emily Nerve, it wasn't long after she had started full time at funiamtion, and someone asked her about going to work at Sentai. She outright told them to work for Funimation instead, ironically because Sentai had/have such a low output of dubs compared to Funimation. A real catch-22.

To be fair, Kongming would be really hard to dub. Even looking past the songs, once they introduce a hip-hop artist, it transitions to needing rhyming frequently. They also dabble into other languages (not always English) pretty often in the show so that's another obstacle.

Don't get me wrong, Kongming deserves a dub more than 99% of what gets dubbed. In my 20 years of watching anime, it's the only subtitled show I've been able to last more than 3 episodes on. But I definitely understand why a company without a very strong dubbing studio already built wouldn't attempt it.

Sentai once had a different dub director like David Wald in Kase-san and Marisa Lenti in Bloom into you.
