Funimation Unveils Date A Live’s English Dub Cast, Trailer

Michelle Rojas, Josh Grelle, Nick Haley, Alexis Tipton, Barrett Nash star in dub

So many unknowns and “underknowns”. Is Funimation responding to the criticism about casting “the usual suspects” ad infinitum? Michelle Rojas…not too sure about her, but she strikes me as another actress who got into the industry through a back door. This Bryn Apprill seems to be breaking out.

Joel McDonald is pretty solid though, IME. His actions with We Without Wings earned him some “cred” IMO. This doesn’t sound all that different from War on Geminar, which he nailed.

C’mon Funi, this is anime we’re talking about here. Those traits are exactly what I’d expect in a hero. When a hero in anime isn’t a slight variation of the Shinji/Luke Skywalker archetype then it becomes unexpected.

Man, I’m not liking that dub clip at all.

I think I’m falling into that groove where you don’t mind the language you watch a show initially in and the other language never seems to measure up to your previous experience with the show.

I thought that this was a trailer? I can’t say that I was really “feeling” that dub from what we heard but I’m trying to “keep the faith” as I am unable to point to a single Funimation dub trailer that was good and was promoting a show that actually had a good dub.

I took a “dub clip” to be an unedited, “straight” segment of a dub, like what we got for Titan.

Though now that I think about it, since I’ve seen a certain Sentai show that is mighty similar in premise I don’t feel all that motivated to watch this one.

Technically, since they call it a “trailer” it would be just that.
I, myself, call anything that presents the dub as the actual dub you will hear, a “dub clip”.

That being said, in this clip…

Josh Grelle just sounds way to old for Shido
Alexis Tipton sounds off to me for Kurumi (it will also depend on how she sounds in the later episodes)
Michelle Rojas as Tohka doesn’t sound too off, but her bit at the very beginning was super short, so it doesn’t show the emotional range that Tohka goes through.
Barrett Nash as Reine also sounds a bit off to me.

All in all, this clip definitely doesn’t satisfy me as far as the dub goes.

ANN Spotlight: Date a Live II

Finally got around to photoshopping the pics and fixing the first post.

That being said…


Man I can’t wait for it.
It’s a shame that Kadokawa has mostly gone to the 10 episode season model, I would have really liked a 12 episode season for S2.

Not sure I like the animation studio switch as far as the animation goes, but it does kinda keep the feel of the first season, which is nice.
