Also, the ANF thread talking about it-

If they're in trouble, they hopefully won't get to dub Rebuild.

They need to stay in business at least long enough to release Gurren Lagann.

LAEM might be in trouble then.

Have you no respect for continuity!? Rebuild dubbed into english with Spencer, Keith and the rest would be awesome!
I mean, Tenchi Muyo is (in hindsight) shit, but had they only managed to convince Petrea Burchard to portray Ryoko once again for the final OAVs, I would've been on those DVDs.

Really? Watch GitS 2nd GIG dub and tell me that's not the treatment you want for Rebuild.

Haven't picked that box up yet, actually. You mean there's a bunch of new voices there? How about Mr. Epcar? Or the guy that's done Aramaki in every english dub since '96?

Is there a massive case of naked children there too? That was animejunkies trademark.

yeah this doesn't sound good for LAEM either...

I'm hoping they don't, because I want to see Tiffany Grant's reaction to not being able to play Asuka.

*Snickers at Universalperson's thoughts* Agreed. :leekspin:

It's nice in a way to see ADV taken down a peg, though I was hoping this would first happen to Mangle.

Oh well.

I'm really ticked off about Moonlight Mile. The licensing scared fansubbers away from the 2nd half (though one subbed episode did appear a couple of weeks ago, I have no idea as yet if there are going to be any more). The only other title there on my honesty list is Gurren Lagann which (for some strange reason) was subbed despite licensing at a similar point in its run.

Of course, if they don't want me to pay them money for anything...

Oh God!

I'm so happy that in Brazil there ain't any dubs!

Well... actually there WAS a dub. But that is deep down in the ocean now. :grin:
I guess it's time for a decent sig right? NAHHHHHHHH

Because GL was so epically awesome, people had to know how it ended, despite the possibility of legal ramifications.

No. Every single Manga Entertainment DVD I have has some problem with it. For the GitS S.A.C. 1st Gig the subs got more and more out of synch as the episode went on, making it unwatchable. My other GitS DVD has dodgy pixelation on some dark scenes, as does my Patlabor movies. Manga Entertainment fucked up the video quality on EoE, and have completely failed to do anything about it. At least I feel I can trust ADV to make a good translation with professional subtitles and good quality video/sound.

Can somone clue me in why ADV is so hated when it comes to picking up a show?

For me the reasons are simply that they're all pretty talentless blowhards who in their commentary tracks (all 2 I've listened too) pat each other on the back for a job done mediocre and ignoring the original creators.

But as long as they supply me with the Japanese audio and subtitles that are professionally done I'm cool.

I'd prefer to see ADV pick them up simply to know the digital transfer would be spotless.

Oh God no, I really hope this is not the case. Their dubs sucks but so does nearly everyones and their only grave sin is their NGE commentaries.

But ADV is biggest anime publisher around and if it goes down like Geneon some time ago... Bad times indeed

Can you imagine how horrible it would be if titles such as 5 Centimeters per Second, Gurren Lagann and Welcome to the NHK are cancelled?
