Q) If you guys are okay with licensing older anime that are pure GOLD, some suggestions: Starry Sky, Kimi To Boku (aka You & I), Hyouka, Wake Up Girls!, Skip Beat!, Shugo Chara, Devils and Realist, Miracle Train, & Alice in the Country of Hearts movie. There are also some newer ones you should consider too like: Wolf Girl and Black Prince, World Trigger, & Parasyte -the maxim-. And if you’re up for doing yaoi, Sekai ichi Hatsukoi is in SERIOUS need of a license. Dramatical Murder would be nice too.

A) I can tell you right now that out of all the shows you listed there we have…4 of those shows, but we haven’t announced them yet. :wink:


Brynhildr in the Darkness / Gokukoku no Brynhildr
#3

Q) What are the factors that determine whether a show gets a dub or not?

A) a number of different things: streaming numbers, strength of brand, fan opinion, etc.


#4

Q) Are you still out trying to license older anime, ones that are from before 2010?

A) All the time, we are always looking into the past for hidden gems that go unearthed.


#5

So what is the 4th one that Sentai got? The first 3 have to be:

Wolf Girl and Black Prince
Wake Up Girls!
Skip Beat!

But I cannot figure out which is the most likely among the rest to fit with Sentai


#6

Q) will you ever bundle op/ed/ost’s in with releases? Of course depending on the licensing if possible.

A) It all really depends on the licensing, but we would love to. We did it with Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and people really loved it.


#7

Q) Across from #NoGameNoLife, are there any other spring 2014 anime titles you guys plan to dub?

A) Might be too early to tell right now.


#8

Q) Any hints for future premium editions?

A) We can’t show our hand all the way, can we? :wink:


#9

Only show on that list I would support. I HATE the cut off point however. Made the fact I’m reading the manga a bit of a kick in the gut.


#10

What are 12 shows that have never been in my Crunchy queue :smile:

Maybe some of those 12 are gems. But I’m unfamiliar with them, which is part of why I assert that Sentai is barking up the wrong tree with this:

Interesting thread topic.


#11

Looks like Chris Patton is going to have another Sentai dub roll.

[quote] @Sentaifilmworks See you guys on Monday!

#12

Looks like it was 2 roles.

Christopher Patton

Back frm H. Recorded 2 Anime. 1 lead role. 1 supporting. About 4,000 lines of dialogue. In 1 week. Boom! #sentaifilmworks #yay


#13

I wonder if Chris Patton is the new speed dubber to beat at Sentai lol. Gotta get Greg Ayres’ scoop on that.

So now we’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop with Sentai announcements. They promise us that it’s a “doozy” and I hope so as the others haven’t made my wallet cry out in dismay yet. Unless Sentai has been sitting on the TWGOK: Goddesses dub for quite some time now, I’m wary of it as I’m not a big fan of director changes mid-series in general.

[size=20]Anime Snowman And Winter Crafts Contest[/size]
December 19, 2014

Anime News Network is hosting its first ever anime-themed holiday contest, and we want our readers to let their creativity run wild! Our amazing sponsors have donated a ton of fabulous prizes, and we have lots of ways you can win. We know that snow doesn’t exactly hit every corner of the globe, so while one of the components of the contest is a snowman-building contest, we have a whole category dedicated to “everything else.” This means that not only should everyone be able to participate, but your imagination is pretty much the only boundary.

What we’re looking for is three-dimensional art projects, but it doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated. For example, you could submit Pokémon snowmen, or dress up your snowman in cosplay. Or if you don’t have snow or don’t want to go outside, you can make anime-themed gingerbread houses, re-arrange your figures into holiday dioramas, cut out Hatsune Miku snowflakes, or show off your anime-themed holiday decorations. As long as it’s three-dimensional (including cosplay!) and winter- or winter holiday-themed, you can submit it.

(Details in the link above)
