Crunchyroll’s Move Back to In-Person Dub Recording Sparks Union Discussion

by Evan Minto, May 18th 2022


Right as the whole thing started Funimation had just finished the new complex. So from a business standpoint it would make sense to move back to Texas VA’s on that point alone since as far as I know most of CR’s dubs were handled out of house. It should cut down on some of the cost and maybe they can pay the staff/cast better.

Now I don’t quite get the what sounds like a full move from remote though at the same time.

Then to be honest I felt some of the remote LA casting were either poor choices or lack of in person directing may have not made the VA’s able to fully embrace the roles. It could for me have been it felt like some of the dubs were brought down by that one poor casting choice for a main character to. I get everyone needs a break in main role ,but if they don’t fit they don’t fit.

Then you get the ADR casting a friend in a role that does not work issue. While it happens in Texas. I feel it seems to happen more in the LA dubs.

I feel to more of the Texas VA’s better handle simulcast style dubbing better then some of the LA VA’s.

I feel most of this though is a money and business situation.
I’d love to hear more of the Union VA’s in Texas dubs ,but if a companies goal is to produce as many dubs as they can to get more subscribers. Yet for some reason they feel the Union hampers that then maybe it’s a problem on both ends not just one that people like to think.

I see they keep going in to the safety ,but after all this time they know the precautions they need to take. So as long as they do the safety issue is more or less thrown out.

I feel they did a bunch of research for the article ,but at the same time something feels missing from it that hits the nail on the head. It feels more of a this is our take instead of the why to me with out that one missing piece.
I overthink so could be wrong.

Now if I was a little more paranoid I’d say they moved back to Texas and started using more of the local VA’s to make it harder for their biggest competitor to get VA’s. :wink:

On another note I’d greatly preferred some of the NY based recordings over the LA ones. After all anyone that can get rid of a NY or NJ accent are some great actors. :rofl:

You know what love feels like, but how do you express it?


It appears that Manga Entertainment, a division of Starz, has the rights to the 1989-1992 Guyver OVA series, according to Wikipedia: The Guyver: Bio-Booster Armor - Wikipedia


It expired some years back. I think a little before or after Starz bought Lionsgate which got them Manga Ent.
