I don't think that there will be one, I think if Aniplex was going to do a dub they would have by now. I was a little surprised it didn't get one because I got the impression that it was a popular series, but maybe the anime didn't do as well as they hoped in Japan so they didn't think it would be worth spending the money on a dub.

I was wondering about Carl's count of filler episodes, what 2 are you talking about? The beach episode obviously but what was the other one were you talking about was it the one when Kuro is introduced? I haven't read the manga, but it didn't seem like a filler to me.

Feels about right. Average fighting shonen stuff. Good for fans of the genre.

I'm still shocked that this didn't/won't get a dub. I was under the impression that it was really popular, definitely popular enough for a dub.

I'm still shocked that they dubbed Madoka instead of this. Not that I'm complaining... but I dunno if Madoka can get sales to the point where it'll see a return to justify the dub? I guess it will... everyone I know who's in to anime has pre-ordered the limited edition. We're all sitting around waiting for our (already shipped) copies to arrive.

This seems like the type of show that could easily get on adult swim if it had a dub. Still bought it but i really hope it does get a dub in the future cause shows like this i enjoy more with dubs cause you really need to watch rather than read action shows.

This is anime. They don't talk much during action sequences and when they do things kind of come to a standstill until the talking is done.

On paper it was a good idea but the anime wasn't good enough to get a dub.

I watched the first episode and liked it, so dub or no dub it's a buy for me.

I thought the anime was great, and I was completely dumbfounded at their decision to not give it a dub. As much as I enjoyed the anime, and boy did I enjoy it, I wont' support these releases. It just doesn't make sense to me, how a show that's this popular doesn't get a dub. If it were like a complete collection sub only DVD set than maybe, but I won't be buying the singles. I'm still holding out for a re-release with a dub. I kind of feel like they're going to release these sets, then be all, "oh well due to "unexpected" sales we're going to give it a dub after all" Of course that's just what I think lol. It probably won't happen but who knows...

I don't know... from what I have heard a lot of the fans of the manga didn't like the anime, and most of the people who liked the anime aren’t buying because they are waiting for a dub. Now that is just the vibe I have gotten from the fans, so I wouldn't put too much stock in it. But still if no one is really buying these single releases then, a re-release with a dub seems very unlikely to me.
