    D.Gray-man Anime Licensed

    I pose this question because I can't wait until D.Gray-man is licensed and dubbed. I am unable to see fansubs because of circumstances beyond my control. I've done this survey elsewhere with outstanding results, the previous poll had an astounding 66% for Funimation. A.D.Vision in 2nd with 14%. Geneon in 3rd with 11% and VIZ Media in 4th with 9%.

    I'm sure a lot of people don't want D.Gray-man dubbed, but it's going to happen. I'm sure lots of people don't want D.Gray-man licensed. It's going to happen. So I pose the inevitable question... who would YOU like to see acquire D.Gray-man for R1 release?

    Please consider the following factors when making your decision:
    1. Dub Cast - do you want a NY, Ocean, NewGen, Bang Zoom, FUNi, ADV or Odex dub?
    2. DVD Extras and Artbox - Do you want lots of extras and an artbox (like what they have for R2s or more even) or just DVD-only?
    3. Release Schedule - Every month, every 2 months or every 3-4 months?
    4. Video/Audio(I know of videophiles/audiophiles) - Is the video and audio perfect/acceptable or poor/unacceptable?
    5. Dub, Sub or BOTH - Dub only? Sub only? Both? Which one do you want?

    The Point: Which company could do the best, absolute great job with D.Gray-man?

    Please Recall at Anime Boston I believe, that D.Gray-man was still being "shopped around", so some of the choices might be unrealistic, but very possible.

    Re: Who do you want to license/dub D.Gray-man? Who could do the best job?

    Hee. I was at AB <D There were plans to show DGM, subbed, but they never even did that D: Dur. Don't buy dubs a lot anymore, so I don't know enough about these companies to make a expert descision, but based on what I've got for anime, I rather like the work ADV does. *votes? >w<;;;;;*

    I really wouldn't mind it dubbed, actually I would. ^^' It'd help DGM a lot in the US.

    I'd have to say FUNimation, purely for the fact that the FUNimation channel is the only anime channel I get. Although, they show competlely shit shows. I think the entire line-up consists of only eight (completely ancient) shows. All day. Every day. D:

    Maybe if I hope, I'll actually get to see a show I want to... ;_;

    I think as far as general dub quality and release value, I'd have to go with ADV. I don't think I've been disappointed with any of their recent dubs. Funi would probably be a close second... though they've screwed up in the past, they've done all right with others (such as Fruits Basket).

    Just for the love of God, not Viz. >_<

    It's confirmed! FUNimation has licensed D.Gray-man and even has an offical website.

    The anime will be released in 2009.


    *EDIT* I updated the thread title

    I'm glad Funimation is doing the dub. They've done a lot of good dubs.

    I probably won't like the dubbed version just like every other show that gets licensed... I get so used to hearing the Japanese voices that the dubbed version just ends up annoying me.

    Re: D.Gray-man Anime Licensed

    Anime News Network has posted info on FUNimation's panel at Anime Central 2008.

    Quote Quote:
    Then came the big announcement: Funimation had secured the license for Studio Gonzo's Romeo X Juliet, which will be released in the spring of 2009 in a pair of half-season box sets. [Adam] Sheehan [FUNimation events manager] had even more up his sleeve, stating that a website, funimation.com/announcement, had been created for fans to enter a contest to guess the company's impending seventh announcement. While fans in the room buzzed with excitement over what else the company could have in the pipeline, those with internet access would discover the not-so-well-kept secret that the company had added the hotly anticipated D.Gray-man to its lineup.

    Re: D.Gray-man Anime Licensed

    Ive beed dreading this for a long long time and now its here.
    D.Gray-man...dubbed

    I cant say that im happy, i just dont want them to screw this up
    Heres the things theyll do thatll annoy me:
    1. Pick stupid voice actors ( I can already hear Allen's typical US VA)
    even if it is good therell be at least one voice thatll annoy me

    2. Change things - D.Gray-man has mild religious influence, FUNImation will probably change that

    3. Edit the age group - Depending on what FUNImation see the age group for D.Gray-man is, it could change the whole tone of the series


    I just HOPE HOPE HOPE theyll do this right

    There is a good thing though, when its out on dvd ill be able to watch it with original voices, subbed

    Re: D.Gray-man Anime Licensed

    The dubbing company has improved a lot since the '90s so I don't think the dubbing will be atrocious. I know that the Japanese producer for Code Geass helped pick the dubbing voice actors while one of the Japanese producers of Bleach flew over here and provided input. I don't think they will edit the religious references in the DVDs, but they might if they air it on television; if it does air on tv, it will probably be in Adult Swim. I highly doubt that FUNimation will edit the age group; they did not do that for Fullmetal Alchemist nor for any other anime. FUNimation is smart enough not to do that; besides they have greatly improved the dubbing of One Piece after the company acquired it from 4Kids.


    FUNimation has posted a press release about their acquisition of D.Gray-man.

    Re: D.Gray-man Anime Licensed

    Anime News Network has posted Voice Actors List for the French and Spanish dubs. It took FUNImation several months to post the voice actors for Ouran High School Host Club so I have a feeling that we will not see the voice actor list for the English dubs until at least the end of the year,
