That would be a pretty dickish move on the part of Sentai if they released a limited edition version without a dub.
Was Higarashi sold as a complete set (all seasons)?

They sold the Strawberry Marshmallow OVA seperately (which didn't get dubbed).
So I'm hoping since the Squid Girl thing is a complete set, that they would dub it.

I guess I didn't notice the Mezzo thing was the naughty version.
I doubt the Sentai dub actors would really want to re-dub that.

Anyhow, sorry for dragging this out on a topic about solicitations.
Hopefully WTK can give us more insider info soon on this show?

I just checked a listing at Right Stuf that is probably good news for those who are hoping that the Squid Girl collection is entirely dubbed. Eastern Star released a complete collection of Fist of the North Star. The collection contains 109 episodes but only the first 36 are dubbed and the listing at TRSI specifically notes that. So presumably, if the same were true for Squid Girl, the listing would indicate that. The only teeny bit of doubt left, imo, is that obviously Eastern Star and Sentai are different companies, so can we assume the same approach is taken by both?

The other thing is from a straight logic point of view, does it seem likely that Sentai would do something that they know would royally piss off their customers? Probably not.

But my advice to those for whom an entire dub is an absolute precondition for purchase is to wait and see if you can get confirmation somehow.

@Blood-

On the other hand, the new set of Record of Lodoss War OVA + Chronicles of the Heroic Knight is shown as a Bluray release. In fact only the OVA is Bluray, the Chronicles are DVD only. The box from Funimation doesn't make that very clear. You have to read the fine print where is says 40 episodes on DVD and 13 episodes on Bluray. Note: this information is on the sheet you throw away when you take off the shrink wrap.

TRSI's listing only shows Bluray/DVD combo pack. To do them credit, they also show Special Features as TBA so they are probably just posting what they got from Funimation. I assume they will probably update the listing when someone complains.

TDRL: TRSI is limited on preorders to the information provided by the publisher.

Based on past actions by Sentai, I would say probably yes. Cool I've never gotten the impression that customer satisfaction was one of Sentai's strong points.

I asked the question over on GameFaqs (a site I often post on), and they gave me a twitter link from Sentai themselves.

https://mobile.twitter.com/SentaiFilmworks/status/890214519884140545

They also mentioned they usually reveal dub casts a couple months in advance, so around September or so, hopefully we hear some good news.
Though I can kinda hear Monica Rial as Squid Girl herself.

Alright, somebody has to do it...

Woo, they're finally releasing Love, Chunbiyo and Other Delusions on regular BD... with the second season as a... not bonus, millstone, that's it. Deadweight, space filler, price raiser, the list goes on. Doesn't lessen the first season any... much... rather a lot honestly... Why did I like this series again?

Well, it's still dubbed Kyoto Animation which puts it ahead of Nichijou.

And Squid Girl's awesome and unfortunately/luckily I ended up getting MB's 2 set 4 DVD mess of a release so a single BD set is definitely up for me no matter what.

And considering how little MB must have paid for the dub, I imagine they managed to get the same cast though I wouldn't complain about a recast... but I ink new writers are a whole different kettle of fish.

But unless they have specifically stated somewhere that they have dubbed season 2 and the OVAs, it's not a blatant lie. The set includes English & Japanese with subtitles. The set is 625 minutes long. Both of those are true statements. However, they are both true even if the only spoken English exists in season 1. I agree that is a "letter of the law" approach as opposed to a "spirit of law" approach...

Its not necessarily anything nefarious on Sentai's part. It could be fully dubbed or it might not be. It wouldn't be the first time that early reported specs or advertisements have been wrong, been incomplete or had typos. On the negative side, at some point the description could change and the 1st season dub might be considered an extra. It also wouldn't be the first time that a company has pissed off its customers. Remember those dub only releases by Sentai that they were required to do? How did those go over? Yea, people were pissed that they didn't get Japanese audio with subs. Still I would be surprised if they didn't finish the dub, since they must consider it popular enough to give it an LE treatment.

As far as Mezzo Forte not having its original dub, again could be a mistake in the specs, a materials issue (no access or in poor shape), or even the Japanese company not wanting the dub used (for Japanese reasons). I think RS is still selling the older DVD with the dub if you have to have the dub.

Somehow I totally missed that. Its what I get for not responding immediately when I first saw the comments and...not enough coffee. Well good, everyone should be happy then. Oddly enough I've suddenly seem to have gotten a craving for calamari.

I'm so glad I don't buy sub only BD because I'd be utterly miffed with some of those "collections".
