 2 Shout Outs!
I know it's wishful thinking, but I really, really hope they might make an OVA someday for the last chapters of the manga. This series is just too darn beautiful for there not to be a little more.

@PsychicVoiceSpy From what I've just heard from my brother, there's a continuation of it on Crunchyroll, episodes are currently being produced and I believe it's airing on TV right now. It's not dubbed yet, though.

Just figured I'd let you know.

@Metabad
Aniplex of America has the license. They only dub popular titles or stuff that has mainstream potential = likely to sell well. Mushi-shi isn't super popular and Funimation confirmed this first series didn't sell all that well. Never say never but I wouldn't bet on Aniplex dubbing it.

@Jackson_H Ahh dang, that would be a huge shame if they never dubbed it. Travis Willingham was perfect as Ginko.

@Metabad Oh man, I'm watching it right now! It's so faithful to the original series it's like it never even ended! The only real obvious differences I've seen so far is that it's animated in HD and has a new opening song. The art-style, presentation and the style of the music is exactly like the original.

Thanks for telling me about this, it looks like it's everything I could have wanted out of a second season. Man, I honestly didn't see this ever happening, what a surprise!

@PsychicVoiceSpy Yeah, no problem! I just recently found this out from my brother, as soon as I heard it I knew I just had to tell you. I didn't think it would ever happen either, I share those sentiments exactly.

I haven't seen it myself yet, but I did just finish Fist of the North Star and rewatched all of Gungrave, so this continuation might be next on my list.

Then again, I have yet to watch the final season of Breaking Bad, and my brother did recommend Kill la Kill to me recently...hmmm...decisions, decisions...

@Jackson_H Aniplex continues to ruin everything. Though, even if FUNi did still have the license, it's not like they would've gotten Travis back as Ginko, considering he's full-on union now and doesn't do anime anymore.

@BlueScarabGuy I'd say Aniplex dubs everything at a slightly higher budget than FUNimation, especially Durarara & Fate/etc.

They do have quality over quantity, but I really think it's too little to compensate for the 5 dubs they put out yearly.

If all their dubs were on Fate/Zero level, I wouldn't have an issue.


...That being said, while Travis does have far bigger things on his plate nowadays rather than to audition (which is the actual work, btw) for anime dubs...

..he still reprises. Just recently he was in BlazBlue Alter Memory, which was an anime dub, not even a game dub.

..Furthermore, saying "he's union" (or even Laura Bailey as well) ignores their openness about continuing the Street Fighter English dubs.

Just recently Laura was on the Saban dub of Pretty Cure Smile.


* Aside from that...we COULD just use Patrick Seitz, if it ever got to that. His acting's fine, & he uses Travis's voice all the time anyway.
