Netflix putting so much money into their dubs has had great effects on the LA scene IMO, so I agree wholeheartedly on how disappointing it is that the regular degular anime licensor aren't following in their footsteps.
Thanks for that source, it's good to see some numbers.

While that kind of """explains""" Baki, this implies that producing a new Sentai dub is cheaper than licensing a non union Bang Zoom dub, as Hero Mask was made before the Netflix union dubbing agreement was put into place.

But nope, it's all Netflix's fault. Heaven forbid we have dub actors actually earn a decent wage.

Penguin Strike. Don't ever underestimate the penguins. :p
