Nope, they've been saying that June/July...... When the frack is this going to come out!

At this point it feels like they are re-dubbing the whole movie.

They'd have to. The dub they played in theaters in January was absolute garbage. Why they didn't allow any Japanese subtitled in English I do not know.

Oh I know I was under the impression they are just re-doing "parts" of the film. Maybe Funi really is
completely re-dubbing the film from scratch.

They always do, just depends on the location. My Alamo Drafthouse had both dubbed and subbed 3.0 screenings--though the subbed screening was announced last minute (they hope they'll have more notice next time around).

Yeah mine has been cancelled too as of today :/

Not a huge deal I suppose, just means more waiting.

I don't know about you, mine has been cancelled too, and taken down from Amazon.co.uk, but in Amazon.com it is still up (damned region codes...)

The answer would seem to be "nothing", so Manga UK have given up for now and told Amazon UK to cancel. If even another distributor feels like that, it's clear that Funimation are still not in a position to give them even a hint.

Well if Spike got his lines done back in the Summer... what could they possibly still be waiting on?

I want to almost bet that we will have the English version of 3.33 after 3.0+1.0 comes out in Japan.

Didn't this happen with 1.0 and 2.0? That 1.0 English was released after 2.0 had come out, I remember reading the dates for everything on another thread and I saw it worked out like that.. but I could've read wrong.

Even Australia and HK had English language releases of Jo quote a few months before the US release, then, as always, the UK got the spawn of the US release.

Were those separate dubs (Aus and HK), or was the US dub released early elsewhere to recoup costs while the US licence was still being negotiated?

I don't know about the Madman release in Australia, but the HK was sub-only.

I don't even want to think when the English version of 3.0+1.0 is gonna be released.

I hope this doesn't happen to Blu-Ray either... but like a lot of people if there are subs for that I am likely going to get that first. Then go back and get it in English when it releases(if it does...).

I'll check later if my Amazon order was canceled, but I ordered it back in September which isn't nearly as long as someone who ordered it this time last year.

Does anyone actually have any idea whats going on with this? My Blu Ray was cancelled and I was pretty mad seeing as it said it just wasn't being released, but I haven't seen any official confirmation of that, just the Amazon email.

Manga UK only republishes what the US has to offer. The US release is still stuck in limbo. Nobody is saying anything concrete.
