Wow! FUNimation's actually keeping the cast and not adding in it's own! Never saw this coming! Very Happy

Glad to see FUNi's keeping the Slayers dub cast as it's been all these years! Smile

Kids, accept no substitutes!

FUNi continues to shine in keeping dub casts consistent. FMP 2nd Raid, Eva (somewhat), and now this, they're really thinking of the fans. Very Happy

Not really interested in Sengoku Basara, but I will probably get World Destruction, so not a total loss in terms of license announcements. Glad to see One Piece is still on board, and hopefully they'll get Eva 2.0 soon (maybe we'll have another "countdown" for this year's New Year's Eve?).

Holy cow, take a gander at that Slayers cast! We got almost everyone back! Not bad, Funimation. Not bad at all. Especially considering it must've been a logistical nightmare hooking up the original cast from New York... How'd they manage that?

After FUNimation got most of the Tenchi cast back for the 3rd OVA series the Slayers cast doesn't surprise me at all.

Ah.. heh heh heh. That's not all the Funimation news.. r-right? I'm sure any moment now ANN will post a casting list for Soul Eater and/or an announcement that Funi got Hitman Reborn or some other highly demanded series... *twitch*

Yet another disappointing panel.

Glad I had no expectations going in or else I'd be severely mad.

Are you serious? The manga isn't even that popular here in the U.S. (or at all) if anycase it'll probably get Viz backlog treatment like Eyeshield 21 got. Anyways good to here my favorite show of te Spring got licensed and a extra bonus for the Slayers cast.

Not only is the Slayers cast news awesome, but I don't think you're going to find many people who are upset about losing David Moo. Replacing him with one of the best actors in the business is just a bonus.

Also, Sengoku Basara is awesome and all you people complaining about it are boring and lame.

I was really attached to David's Xellos but I'm not at all surprised that he won't be returning.

That's what I've been hearing about Michael. I have really high hopes for him!

That wasn't Funimation's call, Kadokawa USA owns the license and tapped ADV for the dub/production on that, and tapped Funimation to handle distribution.
