Thank god, I was starting to get really worried with the silence. Hopefully the subbed version is on Crunchyroll (I would assume it will be, but it's not mentioned in the article). This is probably my most anticipated show of the season, and I would have been... upset... if nobody had gotten it (or if Netflix had somehow gotten ahold of it. The horror!)

Great news, and considering how late the Overlord 2 announcement came I thought for sure that Anime Strike was going to rise from the grave to claim one last victim.

I hope I am wrong, but since Crunchyroll has not said anything, Amazon might get it for simulcasting on Prime.

AnimeLab announced a number of days ago that they were going to be streaming it too: https://twitter.com/AnimeLab/status/949106179052982272 which means AU/NZ is covered at least.

Doubt it, CR typically announces things the day before or on the day of airing for shows. We'll see before the end of tonight or tomorrow.

I can't wait for the SimulDub, Chris Guerrero should get more main character roles. His voice is so rich.

And that's exactly what happened: https://www.twitter.com/Crunchyroll/status/950555872882704384

So Crunchyroll is, in fact, also streaming Overlord II. Why wait so long to tell people, though?

Fortunately, Netflix has shown no inclination toward grabbing subsequent seasons of anime someone else had the earlier season of.

Name one simulcast in the past year that Funimation got that CR didn't.

For bonus points, name any simulcast Funimation got that Amazon also had.

You could consider Sinbad as a prequel to Magi so its not totally correct Razz.

No one can replace Baylock but it will be interesting to see who gets cast as Sebas. Hopefully someone who sounds similar enough.

Agreed.

Blaylock had a very distinct voice. I wonder if there is anyone out there that even remotely sounds like him.

I think Sabat could POSSIBLY pull it off, but that's a huge maybe. R. Bruce Elliot is another close second.

At that point Netflix had already had the original series for two years.
