ANN Review - In Another World With My Smartphone Limited Edition BD + DVD

by Nick Creamer, Sep 14th 2018


#2019

Wow that is some of the worse grades I have seen them give in a while .


#2020

Well the show was in the “so bad it’s good” range. It was weak sauce as both a harem and an Isekai. So take that as you will.


#2021

I saw the review and commented over on ANN that this looked like a series that you would expect a sub-only barebone release. However, Funimation dubbed it and I suspect they are putting out the LE to try and recoup their costs.

Kind of like a odd glowing light in a long abandoned building . The bad reviews make me want to check out more then run screaming into the night .


#2023

Same here. The review implied that Funi took liberties with the dub, which could give it some bonus points.

I’m reminded of the old rule of thumb for action films: if the (mainstream) reviewers hated it, it’s worth seeing.

…also I’ve seen Isekai Smartphone heavily meme’d, so there’s that. Plus, if it enters into “so bad it’s good” then it could help fill the void left by KonoSuba being “MIA”.

DVD-only, and sub-only, releases on the cusp of 2019? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

When are we going to see Funi step up its game, now that it has been assimilated by the deep-pocketed Sony empire?

Witch Hunter Robin - Official Trailer - Coming Soon


#2031

Given the awful reputation this show’s dub has, is Funi not doing a redub?

…You know, i think I sampled the dub of this when I watched it a few years back, but it doesn’t sound bad to me in the trailer.

Even if it is just to have fewer discs with no quality loss, I’d prefer to get this on bluray. I’m still gun-shy about Funi rereleases of old shows on DVD as they bungled the video with Initial D & Vandread.
