Sony!? Well I didn't expect that (Sony gives licenses to anime shows?) but I guess it's better then some other choices. There not the ones doing the dubbing as well right?
I guess we were ALL wrong.
I knew that.... I just wanted to see if you guys knew it... >_>

Sony had the home video/television broadcast rights to the Rurouni Kenshin TV series before selling both to Media Blasters after they failed in getting it on television in the U.S. More recently, they've got the rights to the new Astroboy series that will air on Kids' WB! next season.
It's been established already that either Animaze or Bang Zoom! (probably BZ!) did the dub for the series.
Well the mysterious company has been revealed.
It probably would've shown up anyway.Originally Posted by Matt Wilson
Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!" Immediately the tree withered.
GOD HATES FIGS
Haha, Well, now we know it won't happen, since Matt's hardly ever right.Originally Posted by Matt Wilson
Whoa. And here, I was expecting Bandai....Originally Posted by Andrew
What do you mean he is hardly ever right, sometimes he is not right like once but most of the times he is.Haha, Well, now we know it won't happen, since Matt's hardly ever right.
We ALL expected Bandai, as it was either Animaze or Bang Zoom. Then again, I think it was Andrew who already made it clear a while back that it WASN'T Bandai. So I gave up on it being Bandai when he said that.Originally Posted by jetwing5
If it's Sony, then the dubbing group is Animaze since Sony only uses union studios for dubbing. Bang!Zoom! isn't union and I think Animaze is union now. It's probably the same people behind Metroplis' and Cowboy Bebop: KOHD's dubbing.
"The advance is hip right now, but the original has a place in my heart, unlike pocket which only had the plastic grey, though color had killer appies for things like the sewing machine, not much use for virtual anymore, huh."
Well, considering they have JCA on CN, not to mention the rights to the new Astroboy series in this country (and in the native Japan), it sort of makes sense. Still shocking they would bring this show over, but I guess they want to prove they can do anime as well as radios.

What exactly do we know about Sony? I mean, are they going to be a good company like Bandai and Viz, or are they going to be like DiC and Nelvana and change music, names, and dialogue.
So far, every anime release they've done is bi-lingual.
They've done, through branches of their company...
Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Steam Boy (in the works)
Memories (it's finished, but won't be released for a few months. In fact, it's really old, but it was never released, despite the fact that it's a solid piece of work. Kudos to Sony for this.)
To put it simply, you have NOTHING to worry about.
"Breaker breaker, Sidewinder, this is Party Pooper, don't want to be a ratchet jaw, but looks like we got a seat cover feeding the bears in a chicken coop come on."
Well, that's a relief. It's strange, even though I own the Metropolis DVD I wasn't aware that Sony dubbed it.
They did tried to change Rurouni Kenshin's title into Samurai X when they had the rights.Originally Posted by Master Moron
They were planning on chopping down the episodes to make it less gruesome.
They picked up rights to Cowboy Bebop: Knocking On Heaven's Door and renamed that title into "Cowboy Bebop: The Movie".
They hired back all the dub cast working on the Cowboy Bebop series. And they aired it nationwide (well, more nationwide than any other anime movies). It was mildly successful.
They aired Metropolis in theaters. Though it didn't do quite well.
And that's about it. I mean honestly, I didn't think Sony would be so interested in picking up anime series. And if they were, I was expecting they'd pick Naruto or any other series that's currently popular in Japan.
