Before anyone starts whining over no dub for Needless, i suggest you read the article again because it is dubbed.

Another STACKpak coming from Sentai in You're Under Arrest season 2? Pass!

Well now with the news change, my post was irrelevant

Really? Because the way I'm reading it, this is going to be a sub-only blu-ray release (the first ever for anime?). I mean, I hope you're wrong since I'm curious about this show, but I don't see anything in the actual press release that says anything about dub.


EDIT: Nevermind, Egan just updated and says it'll have a dub. YAY!

Huh. I just can't seem to find a pattern in Sentai's licenses yet... Which is good! Means they're picking up a good variety of titles. (Maybe they're the ones I should hope for with a Majin Neuro license.)

Um no it's not it says so right here:

Quote:
The first 300-minute collection will be in Japanese with English subtitles.


So unless that is a lie, I'm pretty sure that it's not getting a dub right now, or ever.


What about this:

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.

I agree, I think they're just picking up some random stuff they think will sell and then once they see what does sell they'll pick up more stuff similar to it.

Wow, I'm rather surprised Needless is getting a blu-ray release along with an English dub.

Granted, who here wants to see Needless in blu-ray just to see the first glorious ED sequence?!! Laughing

Awesome, this show was pretty fun I'll definitely pick it up. It rocks that they're dubbing it too.

That was before it changed to be correct, so I changed my post to reflect that.

I was almost hoping this anime would be bad just so that we'd get a bunch of built-in punchlines about the title.

OH MY GOD! YESSSSSSSSSSSS!

I HAVE WANTED THIS FOREVERRRRRRR! I never thought it would get licensed. And a dub! A dub!

I demand Crispin Freeman as Adam Blade.

EDIT: IT HAS THE 6-MINUTE SHORTS ON IT! *faints*

Needless to say, this is needlessly awesome pie!
I'm not a big fan of the blue haired girl, but the rest of the cast are quite entertaining and the animation is pretty good.

That would be so awesome... Or at least, have him do Adam Archlight.
