It seems we haven’t seen a dubbed show on VOD since last summer with Little Busters S1. Now, for the first time ever, we have a schedule consisting only of subbed shows for both the free and subscription-based VOD services. We had subbed reruns of shows that were previously shown in English ( Broken Blade & Towanaquon ), ditto for the first season of K-On while season 2 was shown in English and, as of right now, Gatchaman is now shown in Japanese.
Meanwhile, we’re still awaiting for an announcement coming from the staff regarding this change of policy. Can anyone give us something ?
While I don’t expect to see any broadcast of the newer releases ( Sentai has to sell those DVDs ) it would be fun to see shows from last year to have their run in English. Must we expect to never see the dub of Rozen Maiden S4 , Phi Brain S3 & World God Only Knows S3 while all of their previous season were shown in English ? If the argument is “You can watch the dubs with an online subscription”, what about those paying for VOD ?
I don’t want this topic into the old " dub vs sub " debate, but it would be nice to see a balance between both on the VOD schedule.
