100$ for 6 episodes is 3 times cheaper then Japan. HOWEVER... this show is trash. The 1st series might have been worth it, but this one is less then stellar.

Perfect, now everyone can complete their Persona 4 Bluray collection with a dub-only first series and a sub-only second series.

If the soundtrack has more than a handful of songs on it then it sounds like an okay deal, but this show honestly was pretty bad and it only would have been worth it for me if there was a dub track. Hopefully they at least dub the P3 movies after they are all released.

No dub? No sale. Sad

Also, no SamFlam (Samuenco) (yet).

SamFlam was a total bust in Japan and you are deluding yourself if you think it would sell better in the US. I'm not trying to start anything, so please don't take offense.

Interesting. I have been wondering that it would be a good idea for Aniplex USA to drop 4-5 episodes singles and instead do volumes with 6-7 episodes. This will not make the releases affordable (unless AoA starts doing barebones, $30-40 BD volumes with 6-8 episodes), but less volumes mean more shelf space.

I guess I'm a little surprised that they didn't acknowledge that we know that Aldnoah.Zero is getting a dub.

Eh, the hardcore Shin Megumi Tensei fans will eat this up. At least it is getting a blu-ray release.

Good.

This horrible anime doesn't deserve a dub. Mad

I think this and Pony Canyon USA should merge since they are so into using the old practice of selling singles and charging high prices for them.

Most dubs are overhyped and are not good as Japanese ones. {Please be respectful of others. Thank you. ~nobahn}

So why does the first anime get a dub and not this one? I mean, Golden wasn't NEARLY as good but still that's... strange.

Also the price. Absolutely not worth it.

Here's why the 1st got dub-only: fear of reverse importation. The R2 was still selling well when the R1 was going to come out. So the forced the R1 to be dub only so the Japanese would buy the more expensive R2.
