Default Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

But this was all pre-covid so I have no idea how this potential SF dub was affected.
Not sure if this makes a difference, but San Francisco isn't 100% new to dubbing anime. They dubbed the SaiKano series, and the JOJO's Bizarre Adventure OVAs. That's not much at all, but I have to wonder if I'm missing more. I have no idea what you heard or what your contacts said, but I have to imagine it helps that some licensors/ distributors (Crunchyroll, Viz, and Netflix included) are based there. In fact, I think it was Viz who commissioned the JOJO's/ SaiKano dubs in San Francisco back in the day. I guess that's more a revival than a resurgence, tho.
Xana. They/ them. Picture is Nyx from Spawn (comic).
