According to Seri, quite a few of the Funimation VAs returned for the Sentai dub. Definitely worth checking out.

Here's your dub cast.

Almost everyone in the main cast is the same, except Keisuke, who is worse. (Gray G. Haddock)

So the voice actor who did voice acting for RWBY voiced Keisuke, huh?
Disappointed of the fact that Todd Haberkorn didn't return (I'm assuming he was either busy or Sentai couldn't locate him), but Its great to see Joel McDonald voicing Takumi again.

Now if only FUNI could dub Fifth-Final Stage! That would be something, though it's ULTRA unlikely.

The word from Funimation is that they have no plans to continue production of the series. We already knew that. As we saw with Legend 1, that doesn't mean they won't lend their VAs to Sentai. They just have no interest in acquiring the license to the last seasons for themselves.

The word from Sentai is that they have no public announcement to make but they are well aware of the interest in the franchise in the US. It has more to do with dealing with Animax and Sony than anything else, considering how profits would be handled.

Fingers crossed, boys. We might have the complete series dubbed after all.

Don't particularly care about the dub. Do particularly care about getting domestic bluray releases of the whole series.

That would be amazing! I wish we could get all of the series on official release in english dub.

Also glad to see some of the cast return!!!

I already have this pre-ordered. I support everything Initial D that comes over to North America haha smile.gif

Is anyone from Australia planning on preordering Legend 1 from Sentai and shipping it from the US? Wondering as there is no listing of it on Madman, Siren Visual etc.

So, anybody else pick up the movie other than me on here? smile.gif

I have watched it twice in the English Dub.

It was great to see a lot of the voice actors return for there roles.

The few new voices actors...at first I wasn't a big fan of...however, during the 2nd watch I'm already used to them and enjoyed the movie even more!

Cannot wait for movie 2 & 3 biggrin.gif

Now if they would do 5th stage and final stage dub...that would be amazing.

True torture is sitting through the Legend 3 dub. The VAs clearly phoned it in, Sentai misspelled the name of the damn series on the box, and I wasted an hour of my life suffering through the mess of poorly written dialogue.

God damn but this series cannot catch a break in the US.

Here are a few notes I made during my "Intitial" viewing of the dubbed version. You can tell pretty much immediately that the voice actors didn't give much of a shit about this.

Itsuki pronounces the name of his AE85 as "Leveen".

Natsuki refers to the AE86 as "the Torino".

Dialog throughout refers to Takumi as being a member of the SpeedStars.

Bunta says that Takumi improving his skills has been "a real cool deal", and that "one of these days, he'll surpass me, and then begin to want to do what he wants his way." Bunta then hears Takumi driving the S13 and says "he's making some sweet music down there".

Keisuke's VA is just as awful as ever. He tends to put inflection on the wrong part of his lines, especially when questioning Ryosuke detuning the FC.

Ryosuke's VA gave up on this dub before he even started recording. There's no passion here.

VAs pronounce names and places differently. Sometimes it's Aka-gi, sometimes aKAgi.

Miki sounds like a 35 year old chain smoker and pronounces Natsuki "Naat-sookee" every time.

Takumi is distracted by "S-SEX ON THE BRAAAAAIIIN!" and Itsuki says he'll refocus Takumi "without emotions like envy or jealousy or heavy sweats."

Keisuke: "Those two are in entirely different leagues. When they race, one of them will lose." Thanks, Captain Obvious.

At the starting line, Iketani notes the large crowd. "They must be here out of appreciation for their super technique!"

Spectator dialog in general is awful. Some of the actors are trying a little bit, but most of them sound like they lost a bet and have to record for this dub.

Takumi trying to catch up to Ryosuke: "If I can gain on him, even just a meter. I can get closer to that white RX-7 that's racing in front of me!" Where else would the FC be, Takumi?

Shingo, upon seeing the FC approach the final corner with the AE86 right behind: "OH YEAH! THE EIGHT SIX IS SNAPPING AT HIS ASS!!"

The climactic "lines are going to cross!" scene. Shingo's lines: "THE FC IS FISHTAILING, IT'S STALLING OUT, IT CAN'T GRIP! WHAT THE... IT'S BROKEN THROUGH!"

Post-final corner. Nakazato: "Sent chills up my spine. Freaking off the hook." Shingo: "Hell yeah."


The dub is trash. I also noted an issue with the bluray that I'll need to check against earlier rips. During the race, one spectator scene has a guy that didn't have the top of his head drawn. It seems like it was cut off right where the matte (black bars) would normally be. Was the movie originally shown in 1.37:1 and unmasked to 1.85:1 for this release?

@Tessou I think your being a bit too harsh haha....but I do agree....Sentai dubs tend to be quirt mediocre or worse when it's a sub only release, hence why I was originally disappointed that it wasn't Funimation bringing the Legend movies over.

In fact...I generally boycott Sentai releases due to sub only releases or especially for there typical Sentai prices. I paid around $40-50 per movie in Canada. Ridiculous prices.

The only reason why I didn't boycott this release was because it was Initial D.....a series that gets little support in North America and also one of my favorites.

Well.....anyways in other positive news....did anyone notice how Takumi's shirt after the race when he talks to Ryosuke's says "move"....I think we know who they are referring to here biggrin.gif

1. how can a sub-only release have a mediocre dub? That doesn't make sense.

2. I have dubs from all three companies that licensed Initial D here. I thought Tokyopop was bad, but at least they were consistently bad throughout their two seasons. Sentai started somewhat decent and shat the bed with Legend 3. I'm not being harsh, I'm being fair. The quality took a nosedive.

1. Oh I mean whenever Sentai does do a English Dub it's "mediocre" haha
I dislike it when they do just a Japanese Dub though and refuse to do an English Dub like they did for Rin-Ne which I really wanted to purchase until I found out it was Sub-only.

Hope this makes sense now haha

2. Yeah I have all the Dubs also, and one positive thing I will say about the Tokyo Dub was Iketani's voice actor which was Crispin Freeman.
Wish he carried over to the Funimation Dub.

Overall Funimation did it best, but I'm glad Sentai managed to carry some voice actors over from Funimation.
