According to Richard Epcar, the full dub of Stardust Crusaders is 'coming up':

Hopefully the release WB gives it will be an improvement over S1's

@JRPictures So is the full dub gonna just premier on Toonami?
said at 11:49 AM on Fri Dec 2 2016
@Unknownsage13 That is definitely the ideal scenario, as this reduces chances for piracy & (hopefully) ensures that anyone who wants to watch it, watches it together for a shared experience (which is sort of intended). As it is, it's a big deal to me that most anime gets streamed sub-only (though its better than piracy), & any dub is just handled by whoever buys the show. That is so weird from an artistic perspective.

*Hopefully* the show does well enough on AS that (maybe part 5?) gets a TV simuldub or something. Kind of like Big O season 2, FLCL2, & I'm sort of hoping that Code Geass season 3 is similar. IIRC it did really well on AS back in the day & a good dub wouldnt be *that* expensive. Plus I'm sure Toonami would *love* to get their hands on it.

If we could fund this somehow, I'm sure that there'd be a demand. We funded several times the necessary cost for that Escaflowne dub, & *that* show was 16 years old plus kinda niche.

@Unknownsage13 Maybe I'm being a tad optimistic? I just sort of feel that this stuff isnt being capitalized on, when it's totally possible.
said at 8:37 PM on Fri Dec 2 2016
@Unknownsage13 That's the plan as far as I know. The head of Toonami mentioned that they plan to air the first 3 parts of Jojo.

@JRPictures And then I guess in a year we'll find out if Diamond Is Unbreakable will be dubbed.

I felt mixed about the first season's dub, but the test dub for this series was incredibly solid. I really hope the entire series will get dubbed soon, and they'll keep most (if not all!) of the test dub cast.
said at 6:13 AM on Sat Sep 3 2016
@1dbad They will have to replace Dave Mallow as the narrator considering he already voiced Straizo in Season 1. I'm placing my bets on either David Vincent, Eric Vale, or Scott Gibbs.

And it's a wrap.

Now it'll be a long wait till Part 4 gets animated....well in the mean time we can rewatch the series again but this time in english.

will they even go on and air this show in dub?
the cast looked promising.

@The Ear of One Parts 1 and 2 are being dubbed, so I seem pretty confident that this will be too, especially as Stardust Crusaders has historically been the most well-known JoJo part outside Japan.
The Ear of One

@NCZ then i will ask, when will they release the next episodes? now that an previous Jojo series being dubbed, will they conintue.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:23 AM on Sat Jun 13 2015
@The Ear of One Presumably some point after the Phantom Blood/Battle Tendency dub. Part of me thinks that a SC dub will be dependent on Parts 1 and 2's success. A release date later this year seems possible, but maybe that'd be too soon after PB/BT, so perhaps some point next year would be a safe guess.

2016 is obviously when the Diamond is Unbreakable anime will begin, though.
said at 1:13 AM on Sat Sep 26 2015
@NCZ My guess is that Part 4 will start around July of 2016. You know based on the break between Part's 2 and 3. However, that doesn't mean it will take that long... or be that soon. But hopefully it will be that it doesn't take that long.

I really wish we could get some info if this is actually being dubbed or not. Unless they are actually dubbing the fist two seasons as well.

Yeah there's no way it would start in May, the next thing on TOONAMI that's going to end is Inuyasha the Final Act and that's not ending until the first Saturday in June. But it definitely would be awesome if it did replace it.

I must say, I'm enjoying the new dub. I do miss the old Super Techno Arts dub and J.S Gilberts awesome Avdol, but Chris Tergliafera does a very nice job.

@Gaddes Shame it seemed to only be a test dub. No word on if it'll continue and what standards they were using to measure its success.
said at 11:14 PM on Wed Dec 17 2014
@NCZ I was wondering what happened to the dub. Shame if it was just a test dub. I really liked it.
said at 6:37 AM on Fri Feb 6 2015
@NCZ I'm hoping they at least keep Matthew Mercer and Richard Epcar as Jotaro and Joseph.

They're perfectly cast.
said at 2:23 PM on Mon Aug 4 2014
Matthew Mercer revealed during a panel that he did not voice Star Platinum (Jotaro's stand). It was Patrick Seitz and he did the "ora ora ora".
said at 6:25 PM on Tue Jun 24 2014
I expect the voice acting for the English audio to be big and over the top; just like it is in Japanese. Also, will "Walk like an Egyptian" by the Bangles be licensed as the ending song?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:03 PM on Thu Jul 3 2014
@akersaotome Walk Like an Egyptian and Roundabout were both cleared for use on Crunchyroll's legal sub streams, so presumably they should be intact for the dub.

So awesome to see that Stardust Crusaders is getting an English dub.

Yet, I'm kinda sad that JS Gilbert probably won't reprise the role of Mohammed Avdol. I really enjoyed his work as Mohammed.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:30 PM on Tue Jun 24 2014
@Fulgore2005 Yeah, he was one of the standouts of the OVA. Roger Jackson as Hol Horse was really good too.
said at 3:46 PM on Wed Jun 25 2014
@NCZ Agreed. I though the old OVA's dub cast we really solid. JS Gilbert is a criminally underrated VA IMO.

Man, first Bryce, now Matthew Mercer and Patrick Seitz are grabbing roles left and right. Glad to see them getting the recognition they deserve.
said at 7:43 PM on Mon Jun 23 2014
So are they dubbing Stardust Crusader before Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency?
Interesting choice.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:10 PM on Mon Jun 23 2014
@LeDom It makes sense for a few reasons.

1. Stardust Crusaders' adaptation is more recent and currently running. It's a hotter property likely to attract more viewers.

2. Stardust Crusaders is by far the most well-known part of JoJo in the west. This is thanks to the Capcom game and the OVAs, which solely adapted part 3, being the first pieces of JoJo media to be released internationally. Additionally, the short-lived Viz translation of the manga only covered part 3, although they're now beginning to do the rest of the manga from Phantom Blood. Most people in the west that are vaguely familiar with Jojo could name Jotaro and Dio without a problem, but they'd have more difficulty trying to identify Kira or Jolyne due to their portions of the series being much less readily-available. Although All-Star Battle's release seems to have rectified this some.

Additionally, this is purely opinion, but Stardust Crusaders is generally considered to be when the series truly started to pick up steam and find its identity--it's one of the most popular for a reason. The Stand-based battles made the series a lot more exciting and unique. Nothing against BT or PB; they're still very good in their own right, but there's probably a reason why part 3 is so popular.

I'm guessing that if the dub turns out to be well-liked and profitable, they might go back and do the 2012 anime.
said at 1:19 AM on Wed Jun 25 2014
@NCZ I hope they do dub the first two as well. Battle Tendency deserves a lot better than being forgotten.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:23 AM on Wed Jun 25 2014
@D.A.V.E. Oh yeah, for sure. JoJo's popularity has risen greatly in the west recently, so I'm really getting the feeling that the 2012 anime will get a dub, and it definitely deserves one. I was just saying that the decision to begin with Stardust Crusaders is understandable; nothing against Phantom Blood or Battle Tendency.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:24 PM on Mon Jun 23 2014
I never thought this would get an English dub! Beyond ecstatic right now! Matt Mercer as Jotaro and Patrick Seitz as Dio... I had no idea how much I wanted this in my life.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 4:53 PM on Sat Jun 7 2014
Why am I not surprised that the episode where Hol Horse shows up is the best one yet?
said at 2:56 AM on Mon Jun 9 2014
@NCZ Trust me good buddy it's get a lot better
NCZ (Admin)
said at 3:05 AM on Mon Jun 9 2014
@x7samurai Oh yeah, I'm getting that feeling. I haven't read the part 3 manga, but I watched the OVAs and read the plot summaries so I'm fairly familiar with the gist of Stardust Crusaders's storyline. From everything I know it's a definite "enemy of the week" style storyline, but the villains and the battles definitely get a whole lot more interesting as it goes on. Plus it's great getting to grow attached to the characters. This and the Devo episode gave Polnareff some really great time to shine, and the story gets a lot darker once J. Geil and the Hanged Man show up.

I'm particularly looking forward to the battles with N'Doul (he was one of my favourites in the OVA) and of course, the final battle with Dio in Egypt. And Hol Horse is a really entertaining villain so I love every minute he's on screen.
said at 3:14 AM on Mon Jun 9 2014
@NCZ yeah, but wait until Part 5 it gets 20 times better than part 3 in my book i even did a book report on back in high school, but I'm glade you are liking, but i have to know do you JoJo Pose?
