Sentai Filmworks Produces English Dub for My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Anime
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sentai Filmworks confirmed on Tuesday that it will produce an English dub for the television anime adaptation of Wataru Watari's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru.) light novel series. The announcement did not clarify if only one or both of the existing seasons of the anime will receive a dub. Sentai Filmworks announced the dub on April Fools on Monday, but clarified a day later that it was not a joke.
Watari's novel series inspired two anime seasons, which Crunchyroll streamed under the titles My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both seasons on home video in North America.
The anime will receive a third season.
Yen Press licensed the novel series and Naomichi Io's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected @ comic manga adaptation for English publication in 2015. The publisher describes the story:
Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. "Youth" is a crock, he believes--a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he's sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires--gasp!--optimism?
Watari began the original light novels with illustrations by Ponkan8 in Japan in 2011. The series' final arc began with the 12th volume, which shipped in September 2017. The 14th and final volume was originally slated to ship on April 18, after a delay from November to March, then again to April, but was again delayed indefinitely.
