FUNimation Asks, "Would you like ‘Sailor Moon’ redubbed?" (Oh, and some other titles too.)

On FUNimation’s blog, they are doing a survey to see which anime titles you’d be interested in seeing them license. Among the choices are redub of Sailor Moon. ^_^ I know there has been keen interest in bringing Sailor Moon back to the U.S. since all the rights were pulled from ADV. Now, this doesn’t mean FUNimation has the title of course, but it does show their interest in making this happen IF enough of you guys vote for it in the survey. While I’m not a dub fan, I would love to see Sailor Moon unedited and since FUNimation would almost certainly provide me with a subtitle track, it would be all good.

Sailor Moon
Other titles of personal interest on the list are Toradora! and Hayate the Combat Butler 2nd Season. Considering Bandai licensed the first series (season), it is interesting that FUNimation would try to score it. Then again, Bandai announced a license last July and I don’t think anything else has been said about it. I don’t think Bandai is doing the subtitles on Crunchyroll for Hayate the Combat Butler 2nd Season.

Update: Five years later, Viz licenses the anime and is doing new dubs/subs.

    Oh if FUNi gets all of Sailor Moon and gives it new dub, I will be so very, very happy!

    I can’t remember the details off the top of my head, but Bandai did solicite the details for their first Hayate release a couple of weeks ago. It’s due June or July IIRC.

    Personally, I would go with Valkyria Chronicles. I recommend it.

    Toradora! and Zetsubou Sensei are my top picks from their list. They’re two of my favorite shows in the last few years. DMC was damn funny as well.

    Ah. I hadn’t been paying attention so thanks for the info. ^_^

    I would only like Sailor Moon to be redubbed- based on “uncut content” “Missing Mina episodes” and “Season 5”.

    I actually enjoyed DIC and CWI’s version. To me, the acting for the series was always good. People seemed to be more bothered by what was removed from the show.

    It would be awesome if the original Canadian cast could do it. But some likely wouldn’t.

    I would also like Card Captor Sakura to be redubbed, preferably with an American cast. I never hated the Nev version, I just felt it’s choppiness was annoying.

    I liked the Sailor Moon dub outside of a few glaring issues (Catsy’s second voice, Rini’s robot-voice)and you know what? I actually liked British Luna and Brooklyn Molly. In all honesty her emotional whaling in the Nephlyte episodes but the Japanese seiyuu to shame and it actually fit with the animation better.

    But I digress, I liked the dub for the first 65 episodes and everything that came after was a gradual decline into crapiness with glimmers of good dubbing so having a new consistently good dub will be epic.

  8. This is great. I would like to go with sailor moon. The reason is that is has been my favorite show over a long period of time.
