    I'm glad to see FUNimation placing emphasis on the show first and foremost. I'm not exactly sure testing this with Otaku incest-pandering is a solid idea, though. I like to think that sort of fandom doesn't exist o're here in the US of A.

    As if to suggest that they weren't focusing on the shows before this?

    There are a lot of weird fetishes in the US of A. Just check Pornhub's online territorial fetish map of the USA

    The sudden change in mantra is the proof in the pudding. Sub-only releases have sold for other licensees before but FUNimation has always refrained from doing so. Now they're giving it a shot with Arise and the aforementioned title. No drumbeating for a dub cast, just the show and a few other extras.

    I'm curious as to whether this is due to internal turmoil within FUNimation or simply a change of heart. "Hey, these shows have fans without needing to replace music, sound effects, foreign language text, and [now] voices!"

    So unless they announce that there will be a dub later, that leaves Viz as the only company for whom a home video release guarantees a dub. I never had the slightest interest in Oniai, so I certainly have no opinion on this particular situation, but if the FUNimation licenses that they don't think warrant a dub are of similar themes to that, I'll be pretty happy. Otherwise a title that I didn't love and doesn't have any special extras like Lain or Guilty Crown will probably get passed over by me without a dub.

    This seems like something Funimation were forced to release rather than something they wanted to put out. As such, it makes sense that they wouldn't throw good money after bad money by dubbing it. I don't think it'll lead to Funimation picking up more niche series in the future. They typically shy away from those kinds of shows, and I doubt it's just because of a dub fee.

    Seesh, if this happens, I'm not going to purchase them. I don't like Sub Only for economic and artistic reasons, regardless of the quality of the show.

    Oy vey.
    You can't really count Arise, which is an import. It's not like Arise won't get a dub, as FUNi has said it WILL get a dub for its regular stateside release.
