David Wald directing a cast of LGBT+ leads and dubbing Given!? Sign me up!

Also I think Brandon actually covered some of the songs for the series, so I wonder if they actually will dub the music.

Out of curiosity, who else is LGBT+ in the cast? I know Brandon is, as is David himself, but I'm not sure who else (I believe Josh is married to a woman).

Josh does identify as being nonbinary, so there's that, if that counts.

Jonah Scott is Bi as well.

Super excited about this one! This was one of those Crunchyroll shows that a ton of fans hoped would get a dub eventually (alongside titles like A Place Further Than the Universe), and I'm glad to see it actually happening.

David Wald directing is extra icing on the cake, I think his track record really speaks for itself. From his work at Sentai (Bloom Into You), CR/Funi (Stranger by the Shore, The Case Study of Vanitas), to partnering studios like Sound Cadence (Adachi & Shimamura), you can tell he puts a lot of care into his projects.

Probably going to binge-watch this on Monday while recovering from Otakon festivities haha

This took awhile but great to see this happen!

Maybe a home release now?

I enjoyed the dub but the lack of subtitles for songs and text messages impacts the story. If I hadn't watched the subbed a lot I would have not know the significance and would be less emotionally invested in the story.[/quote]

A gay ADR director directing the Eng. dub of a BL/yaoi anime with LGBT VA might make the experience a bit more authentic or believable. However, a straight ADR director using straight VA for such a show could also deliver powerful performances.
