Here's to hoping it gets a great dub! *chugs soda*

This is yet another show I've heard great things about and haven't really seen any of (I miss out on a lot by waiting till I can get a DVD even if there's a legal stream somewhere, not sure if there was one for this or not) and I'll snatch it up quick if we get a dub.

Call me a negative Nancy, but I can't see this ending well. The license for this show *had* to be a crapton more than Lucky Star's, and I don't think K-On! will sell even half as much as Lucky Star did.

I predicted that the company that licensed K-On! would be the next one to fail, and I stand by that prediction. I wish Bandai Entertainment the best of luck, because they're going to need it.

And for the record, I will be buying this.

I thought Bandai was struggling and wasn't going to get anything else this year. They must be gambling on it's success. It also probably means no dub. Confused

I haven't seen it, personally, so I might pick it up.

I wonder how they will release this? Singles with Limited Editions? Boxset? Hmmm. I will hope for a dub but I doubt they will.

This does seem like a title that would be a hard sell outside of the hardcore fan crowd, something that doesn't have much mainstream appeal, but who knows - maybe it'll sell really well. I know I want a copy, dub or sub, but as I've said before, there are older shows I want and don't have yet that have a dub that come before any sub only title...barring it being something must-have, of course.

Unless Funi makes an announcement saying they licensed Sailor Moon for rerelease, this year's Anime Expo belongs to Bandai. Sub or No Sub, this is a sale to me. I really am looking forward to what Bandai has in store for this series in America. Maybe Blu-ray release?

Oh hells yes! And add blu-ray to the hells yeah to it too! Seeing the twitter mention of it from Bandai was quite the fist in the air moment.

You got a fun license there Bandai, make us all proud and release it with the care to detail it deserves!

*thinks about the songs done in blu-ray quality audio....*

Well...I might, perchance, maybe, have some, if only a *little* interest in this....

Oh what the hell. I'm excited for this license. For, as a high school girl, I can enjoy and relate to stupid, cute high school girls doing stupid and cute high school antic...things. Yeah...I'm going to go with that...

I've seen no proof yet, but rumblings are saying we are getting a dub, with Wendee Lee as the lead (which is which one again?) and Christina Vee as Mio.

Do NOT quote me for this as accurate though, this is speculation for now obviously. Anime smile;

Update

Okay, my source was confused and thought Wendee Lee and Christina Vee was the same person...so Vee is the lead, so they say.

But wait, I thought Mio wasn't the main one? Now I'M confused. *scratches head*
