Winter 2018 Anime Power Rankings
« on: January 31, 2018, 09:23:30 PM »
Shows I'm keeping up with:
1) Yuru Camp - Not enough Ena with her DOGE.
2) Sora yori mo Tooi Basho - Madhouse at it again, never thought a show about ANTARCTICA can be so good.
3) Violet Evergarden - Kyoani animating Saber from Fate Stay Night.
4) Koi wa Ameagari no You ni - Wit Studio with the fabulous art style.
5) Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card - I really should finish the first season.
6) Gakuen Babysitters - Pretty accurate depiction of 18-month old milestones.
7) Hakumei to Mikochi - Very nice slice of life about 9 cm tall people.
8) Dagashi Kashi S2 - Not as good as S1 but Hotaru still a riot.
9) Hugtto! Precure! - Jyunichi Sato is back in business. Pediatrician approved baby.

So wish I could watch Clear Card. Curse my useless eyeballs and my horribly inadequate Japanese.

Hopefully, it'll get a dub by the time I finish my episode-by-episode comparison of the Nelvana and Animax dubs of the original anime. Possibly a pipedream considering how rarely Mahou Shoujo get dubbed these days, but a man can dream.

Not quite a simudub - Funi's dub is running two episodes behind the Japanese raws. (Japanese raws are currently at episode 4, but Funi released dub of episode 2 on the 31st.)

well yeah, what they call simldubs run 1-2 weeks behind the Japanese releases usually. My guess is they don't get the video until it is released in Japan.

While they might not get the broadcast-ready video until later due to encoding issues, the scripts and a work-raw could be made available for translation/recording simultaneously to the Japanese seiyuu receiving them.  When our group's subtitling teams can prepare a QC set of subs for an episode in under three hours, it shouldn't take professional production firms multiple weeks to prepare scripts for their dub team and get a recording. (a task of similar complexity)

I do agree that you are not wrong there. It was just speculation on my end. Could also have something to do with their partnership with crunchyroll - maybe have the sub come out first to try to drive views there, and then the dub for those who want it over the sub. But, since we aren't part of these talks as to why the delay, all we can do is guess.
