Hoping it’s a kid-friendly dub. Really wanna show this to my niece.

Considering that this is previous only a license rescue label and that this is a relatively new dub "studio", whatever it is... it may be someone's bedroom for all I know... I just find it hilarious that dubs are continuing to advance and expand years into the streaming era.

And most of that is because technology continues to make it so much easier and cheaper to record.

As for the show itself, whatever. It's less important that what it represents.

I'm so happy with how far Discotek has come these past few years! Now they're managing to dub anime now! This looks like a solid list, with both well established people and complete newcomers I've never even heard of before. Here's hoping the dub is successful! Very Happy

It'd be really weird for them to start swearing in the Kemono Friends dub. (I think the worst thing they ever said in the sub was "that sucked.")

Yeah, this ain't Angel Cop or Mad Bull 34. I highly doubt it'll be littered with cursing and vulgar language. From what I did see of the show, it seems like it would be something that was PBS worthy (or whatever the equivalent would be in Japan).

Sound Cadence has actually been around for quite a while. Don't go underestimating their capabilities just because you've never heard of them before.

NHK-worthy's the phrase you're looking for.

Kayli had better make a trip to a certain Japanese zoo and dance around in honor of her late mate...

In all seriousness though, Sound Cadence is really getting up there, and I love how they do incredibly diverse casts from all over the country. Seems like yesterday the only thing they dubbed was fancy yaoi.

I think Omnistry might've thought of dialogue that's easy for kids to follow. Like... five or six year old's. I do remember the original dialogue in Kemono Friends being kind of basic a lot of the time, as if they were talking to children rather than adults, and the fact that Kaban is going to remind a lot of kids of Dora in her namesake show might mean they're also going to expect the characters to speak like the characters in Dora the Explorer too. Or something similarly.

"All over the country?" 95% of this cast are texas based though.

This is likely a reference to the Galaxy Express 999 movie dub that was also announced since they brought in Lisa Ortiz to reprise as Maetel, a character she previously voiced for some Leijiverse OVAs that Central Park Media had when they were around.

It is good to hear that the Kemono Friends dub will be released in September and while the show might have budget CGI it was one of the most charming anime of 2017. Tatsuki gave an interview where he said that Kemono Friends was made to be a family friendly show and hopefully the dub will get it a bit more notice in the western market.
