So it appears Sentai Filmworks are bringing the New Initial D movies to America.

They're planning on bringing the movies on home video distribution and according to someone on the Initial D reddit there's a possibility that's it's gonna get a theatrical release (I highly doubt a theater release).

I'm not a big fan of Sentai since a lot of the times there dubs are meh or they release in sub only. (I prefer Dub)

HOWEVER....

Since this is Initial D....I'm supporting this 100% day 1!

Sub only... Dub...doesn't matter....I'd love to own these legally, in high quality biggrin.gif

A bonus though would be that they brought the Funimation Dub Cast onto this project to give the same voice actors.

As a fan of dubs, you are in the minority, and Sentai has been operating on that business model (successfully) for a long time now. In the eyes of localizers, you are a second-class citizen. FUNi is about that only company that still caters to you.

That all being said, couldn't care less. The new movies were...eh. I think I've already voiced my opinion on them before so I won't repeat it here. I'll just say the same old codger-like comment I must have said many times over...

Lets not forget about Viz. They also do Dubs...excellent Dubs.

I remembered why I'm so salty with Sentai.

1. Clannad Dub was horrible in my opinion. The original Japanese had so much emotion. The Dub Sentai did....was so amateur in my opinion.
2. Rin-Ne...a series I was waiting for since I love Inuyasha....expecting it to be licensed by Viz....it went to Sentai instead...and what annoyed me most was the Sub only release. So I just didn't buy it.

However...one release I did enjoy from them in Dub form and I bought was Angel Beats. They did a good job on that release in my opinion.

But like I said...since this is Initial D...I'll make an exception since I'm hoping maybe if sales are good we could get Fifth & Final Stage? That's probably asking for too much though haha.

Anyways....I would prefer Dub if they got the Funimation cast....if not...than I'd ratehr just have Sub Only instead of them pulling off a Clannad dub.

The person in question got a standard PR response to a fan email. I asked Funimation a long time ago if they were ever going to distribute 5th and Final Stages and they gave me the same sort of non-answer. "Further licensing of Initial D will be announced when we have news."

I highly doubt if they're gonna bring the FUNimation cast if they even plan on doing a English dub version of the movies. Funimation and Sentai doesn't have a good relationship since they were in a lawsuit back in 2011-2014.

Oh didn't know about the lawsuit.

Well, we will see what they do. Either way we should be happy to have a official release over here and show our support for the series smile.gif

And we're still missing Legend 3 in France
No rights for L3 for the moments, like 5th and Final Stage

I'm happy for you guys happy.gif

(At least, the french manga publisher confirm they'll release all 48 volumes)

That sounds like something the Tokyopop dub of Grim Reaper Ringo would say laugh.gif

I'm just holding onto the frail hope that there's a legit added eurobeat mix version in there somewhere.

I really doubt it and don't expect it, but...

Stop hoping, that would literally make zero sense.
