[Let’s talk: Anime] Funimation Simuldubs Fall 2016 Week 2

The final round of simuldub casts have been announced. Something I didn’t mention in my last post is that it’s really exciting to see so many new shows available in English so quickly. It’s no secret that I prefer dubs just because I follow more of the actors, so to see this much content each season is incredibly gratifying. So, without further ado, let’s dive in and see what other titles are in store for the season.

There is genuinely no other way to describe my feelings for this show other than hype. The cast looks beyond incredible, the animation is stellar, and the story seems amazing. It’s hard not to be excited for this show. debatably, it’s going to be the biggest title this year and I think Funimation (along with the animation studio) know that. I’ve bought into the hype with shows before and I will gladly do that this season with Drifters.

This is a show that I’m not thrilled about. The cast makes me a little intrigued, but the actual premise of the show seems kind of hit or miss. I’ll probably look into it and give it a chance, but I’m not expecting much of anything from it.

I didn’t see season one, but I’ve heard some pretty good things about the show. The cast seems pretty solid and I know they got most, if not all, of the original cast to come back. If you enjoyed season one, this is probably worth a look to you.

Holy cow, that is an enormous cast. Where do I even begin with this one? There’s a lot of new talent, included one actor I’ve been following named Dallas Reid, so it will be interesting to see these actors in the spotlight (assuming they will given how large the cast is). But, for those a little more hesitant about new talent, there’s certainly a lot of familiar names sprinkled in the cast to bring in fans of those actors and give the newer ones more exposure. I think this show looks like fun and I will be checking it out.

How could I not be excited about this cast? Two of my favorite actors in a show that I’ve been beyond excited about since it was announced seems like the perfect combination. Austin and Justin are both incredibly talented and it will be exciting to see them play off each other in a dub together.

I genuinely have no idea what to make of this show. I like the colorful aesthetic, but the story seems kind of bland and generic. I like Aaron Dismuke as a director, so if I do check out the show it will be because I want to check out what he does with the show. The cast seems pretty solid as well. But again, it’s difficult to be excited for a cast when I’m not all that excited for the show.

So, what are you guys excited for? Feel free to let me know if you have checked out any of these shows or dubs so far!
