It really is coming.

. . .

. . .

F*ck.

. . .

. . .

Maybe I can give it away to an orphanage?

. . .

No . . .

. . . few deserve this sort of punishment.

And orphans have already lost their parents, no need to traumatise them further.

That's a pretty hefty talented cast they've got there. And no Steve Foster behind it? I'm in…

And hopefully the show will show up via other digital distro channels, besides Amazon. However, I do not recall such rights being listed in its initial press release.

Janice Williams directed this one. Chris Ayres and Clint Bickhman wrote the scripts.

Anyway, awesome cast! I can't wait to hear it!

Vic Mignon as Meshijima...I can't hear it in my head.

Yumekui Merry gets a dub? I hope that works out for Sentai. The show didn't leave a strong impression on me.

Ooo, sounds like a nice cast!
Personally, never seen the show, but I'm more than willing to give it a try if the dub sounds excellent.

I guess enough people watched the streams that it influenced Sentai to dub the show. The show was blah at the end when it diverged fro the manga...yet another mediocre JC Staff adapation.

I bought the Japanese release to try and show support to get a second season (probably highly unlikely at this point thanks to terrible sales that dropped harder than a rock after volume 1) since the manga is pretty exciting. But, I do hope the money the Japanese licensor got and maybe decent US sales could help with a second season.

Video-only sales of a so-so anime in this market aren't going to tip the scales in favor of a second season, which would need an overhaul to even be able to use the manga as source. There would need to be a company with a lot of cash, like a broadcaster, to make it worth anime producers time to put out another season.

It could technically happen, but the DVDs and Blu-Rays would have to sell a LOT to convince the Japanese staff to consider otherwise. As in... DBZ level, but I highly doubt that's gonna happen.

I've never seen this show, bus wow! Lots of great VA! I hope this sells so we can get more great non-Foster Sentai English dubs. I've been enjoying Sentai dubs more than FUNi dubs lately, mostly because Sentai seems to have more variety in their casting. They have their mainstay people (Luci Christian, David Matranga, Blake Shepard, Shelley Black, Melissa Davis, Greg Ayres, etc), but they seem to have more variety than FUNi.

DBZ is hardly a video-only based franchise in America.

The first season was backed entirely by a large broadcaster/DVD distributor and a manga publisher. There appears to have been no investment from anime producers, advertising firms, or merchandise/music companies, which could explain the sparse resources.

That said, no one's going to finance a second season without a commercial incentive.
