Funimation re-casts Danganronpa Anime

Only Bryce Papenbrook is returning.

The Neptunia and BlazBlue dubs gave me hope, but it looks like Funimation couldn't (or didn't) hack it.

That really sucks. It's great that Bryce is back, but hearing someone besides Brian as Monokuma is gonna be weird.

I wonder if they're gonna try to match how they sounded in the game or just do their own spin. Should be interesting to at least see for an episode (heck if I'm watching that entire series again).

To be honest, I wish they went all or nothing because now there's no way I'll be able to watch this, I'd be too focused on the fact that Makoto's voice was the same when everyone else's is completely different.

From what I can gather, this dub was done a while ago, possibly a year ago. The games weren't popular at that time, and they probably only got Bryce because he announced his part in the game and he was already there for Attack on Titan. Can't really blame them for not wasting the money and effort on getting a whole new cast of people to re-dub a series they already finished.

Still, would've loved to see the old cast work with a different director and see the results.

Slow the fuck down, hombre.

I just keep hearing it everywhere. No one ever seems to provide a source, though. I know there's probably a great chance in that case that it's all a bunch of crock, but I'm just saying that if it turned out to be true, I'd understand the situation.

Caitlin Glass Tweet says it's been a year since recording as well.

That just raises the question of why they waited so long to put this out (and there's still no exact date for the set).

So basically their plan was to replace 95% of the cast, wait over two years to release it well after everyone has gotten used to the game's VAs, and then... profit?

I guess I don't see their strategy here...

Makes pretty much no sense to release it a year after recording.
Not impressed they didn't get any coherence between the game and anime.
If anything I can already guess that they're going to keep "Super High School Level" and characters referring to each other in second names?

They might if it happens to match the mouth flaps better. NISA can get away with changing that shit because it's just text and voices, but Funi actually has to do ADR.

I am glad to know that Bryce is back. Anyways, I want to download some horror anime movies to watch in my free time. I have already seen Corpse Party and Deadman Wonderland. Both are great movies and looking for more similar movies!

Well... the trailer for the Danganronpa dub just came out, and... it's definitely in English!
