So, their sole two projects were a notoriously difficult to translate series they were legally required to start hundreds of episodes in, plus a single cour series that was forgotten before the dub was announced ...

I appreciate CR giving us these two because if they hadn't, Ocean would've gone through the 2010s without dubbing a single new series aimed at audiences over 12, but still. The odds were stacked against them.
*anime achieves mainstream global phenomenon status in 2010s not seen since 90s/early 2000s*
*throws Ocean under the bus*

US resources. Canada resources 1 and 2. I've donated, you can too. Black Lives Matter and happy Pride.
