Funimation gains rights to the First Strike

Post by Rise: The Game on Sun Apr 03, 2011 11:47 am

So yeah, Funimation got the rights to the First Strike movie, which is cool. Cause now I can buy it on a dvd that doesnt cost over 100 bucks >_<

Whether it will be dubbed or just japanese with subs (which is what bandai is apparently doing with tales of the abyss) is unknown

HOW COME EVERYTHING GETS DUBBED RIGHT AFTER I DOWNLOAD IT? D:

As in..Vesperia First Strike?

I'm more bummed than excited actually...As much as I'd love it dubbed...VIZ WHY WON'T YOU TAKE IT? STOP TAKING EVERYTHING YOU CAN GET YOUR GRIMEY HANDS ON FUNIMATION[/pet peeve]

Seriously, i'm so damn tired of funimation getting rights to EVERYTHING. I see Funimation as a Quantity over Quality thing. I'm almost ashamed their headquarters are in Texas. Lol.
I just PRAY they use the original voices...

Hm. I love funimation. I dont really see the issue with their dubs. And you're lucky i'd break into their headquarters. That and they always give cool stuff with their dvds like the awesome post cards that came with my Durarara boxset Very Happy

Still, since Soul Eater. I just think badly of Funimation.
Funimation just...gets old.

Funimation >>>>>>>>>> Viz

Also Funimation has dibs on Troy Baker I beleive so this means Yuri can keep his proper voice.

Thank god. All they need for the movie is Yuri Flynn and Rita. Raven and Estelle's scenes are short and unimportant enough that i wouldn't care if they had different voices.

I don't think FUNimation has ever released a sub-only DVD. I doubt they'll start now.

FUNimation is the biggest international distributor of anime by far. Viz doesn't even release their most popular series (Naruto and Bleach) in blu-ray while FUNimation is constantly cranking those out. And honestly, as far as I can tell, Viz just isn't doing much these days. I won't be surprised to see them quit anime sometime in the next 5-8 years.

What? Soul Eater's dub was pretty good. Not the best, but definitely one of the better ones, especially once Brittney Karbowski got more used to her role as Black Star.

Well hey its been a year lol.

Its coming out on June 26, and Yuri and Flynn are the only ones who retain their original voices. Then again they're the only ones that matter, Rita has one 4 minute scene, as do estelle and raven. Even then the clips show that they do their jobs just fine.

It has Chris Sabat. That alone makes any voice change forgivable.

Aww. Oh well. Yuri and Flynn were the important one anyways. Yuri sounds...a bit off though. Maybe it's just me. As long as Vic isn't in it. Lol.

..I still hate you with a passion Funimation~ <3

Yuri is using his Kanji voice. Troy IS like 3 or 4 years older at this point so its not bad and should be expected that he sounds a little older/raspier/Kanji

Also whats wrong with Vic? He's fucking awesome.

Ah, well that makes sense.

I have nothing against Vic personally, he's a cool guy. I just get sick of his voice acting.

Got my copy of the movie when I got home yesterday, man funimation sure knows how to make a case



Pics don’t really show it all that much but the cardboard cover is all shiny and holographic. The dub overall is pretty nicely done like most funi dubs, plus Troy Baker you can’t go wrong with that voice. No real special features to speak of that I came across but the menu is very nicely put together.
