[Let’s Talk: Anime] Funimation Simuldub Summer 2016 Week 3

Seems like the final bit of announcements have been released.

From full length series to shorts, Funimation certainly has a little bit of everything to offer with this last round. So, here is a quick look at these titles as the simuldubs get underway starting this week.

The cast seems rather run of the mill here, but then nothing about the story really stands out to me. There are a few actors I really enjoy, but some of them are in titles I’m more excited for. I’ll stay optimistic as I try to do with all shows I go into, but I really am not expectin too much.

This is another show I will be taking a pass on. The show wasn’t my cup of tea, but what I did see had a very solid cast and good song translations. Fans of Show by Rock will enjoy the dub and the characters returning, but I will be sitting this one out.

Once against this seems like a rather solid cast. I’m hoping for something light hearted and kind of fun out of this series. Should be fun with an actor like Jerry Jewell in the lead!

While the story seems rather generic, I’m interested to see Rob McCollum in a role like this. He doesn’t usually play characters like this, so it should be fun to see something a little different.

Be on the look out for my reviews of the simuldub season and tune in to Funimation Now for all the shows I’ll be talking about!
