I was waiting on the New Game!! announcement. I was starting to get worried no one picked it up since there are already clips of it on youtube. I wonder if Funimation is going to simuldub Smartphone. Seems like they would.

I also think it would pretty cool if they simuldubbed New Game!! and went back and dubbed the first season. Similar to how they did Free!

You're right IIRC they simuldubbed the second half of Yona and then went back for the first. Here's hoping. I think New Game would be a pretty fun dub.

along with Tokyo Ghoul, which was a really dumb idea. What would make more sense would be to handle it the same way as Snow White With the Red Hair. Simuldub season 2, but release the first season's dub in batches before the simludub starts

That would probably be the best solution but ultimately i dont know if funimation is going to have time to go back with New Game season 1 and 2. They are probably going to have 17- 20 simuldubs going on before its all said and done and not even counting this show.

Not including shows from last season continuing on like Sakura Quest, MHA, etc, Funi only has about 8 new simuldubs on deck for the summer season. It wouldn't be too much of stretch for them to get New Game if they really wanted it.

FUNi doesn't seem all that interested in cute girls doing cute things shows. For instance, I'm 99% certain that FUNimation didn't dub Sore ga Seiyuu / Seiyuu's Life when they released it on home video. They didn't dub Nichijou either I believe. And they've always let other companies have pretty much every big hit cute girls doing cute things show.

sure, but they also only released Seiyu's Life on DVD, so its likely the simulcast results were abysmal.

If they dubbed Sansho Sanyou and Show by Rock, re-released Lucky Star, and licensed Seiyuu's Life, Puchimas and Jinsei then anything is possible.

Also I'm still of the firm belief that Nichijou wouldn't have worked as well dubbed. So I really wasn't bothered at all by the release.

They have more dubs to announce still with newer shows that still need/deserve dubbing attention.

And in the case of "new game" they are probably going to dub it but not until they release it straight to blu ray/dvd (just a guess obviously) that way they can release MORE SIMULDUBS
