At the same time

For example

Gonzo has been streaming three anime titles on the YouTube, Crunchyoll, and BOST websites on the same day as their Japanese broadcast.

Somthing that a lot of people would want to happen (except not watching it on CR Very Happy )

In the manga, Kyoko doesn't try to be a singer like Sho, she just wants to be a bigger star than him and becomes an actress.

I hope they're not turning her into a singer for the anime.

I wonder if this means the broadcast in Taiwan will be dubbed in Chinese. Though I think subbing is more likely because it's easier to do in a short time.

It will hopefully attract more followers for the anime, if people are able to afford the pay-per-view in Taiwan. I've been wanting to look into the series itself, things always seem to get out before I can really get into it.

I've asked PR rep of Top-Insight today about the dub and she told me that right now only October broadcast is confirmed; dubbing, pricing, and the exact date of broadcast are still being negotiated, and they'll issue a new press release in the near future once those issues have been confirmed.

So when will it be made available in English? Does anyone know? Either subbed or dubbed?

Only if it's licensed, which could take half a year after it's done airing. And the release of the first DVD could be another year or year and a half after that.

I don't remember exactly but from what I can recall, episode 52 is one of those special epilogue OVA episodes and was scheduled to be broadcast at some time in Japan. Cartoon Network (Taiwan) received the scripts and tape a couple weeks prior to that time and wrapped up their production super-fast...and so somehow Taiwan enjoyed a rare world premier of an ongoing anime. Rolling Eyes

Here's a couple threads discussing the last episode of Kaleido Star back in '04. Notice the date.

I got the exact same two pages via Google as well Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop but thanks anyway.

If WIN DVD was still around... some of its former crews are scattered among other licensees, including Hi-Yu.

Wait a minute. Bleach is still airing in Japan and it's up to episode 76 in America. Sooooo, is there a chance they would do the same thing for Skip Beat, if it airs a lot of eps?
