Default Soreike! Anpanman to receive Western English Dub

So, Anpanman is one of the biggest anime franchises in Japan. It's been around since 1988 as an anime, has multiple museums and a movie nearly every year, and holds the world record for most named characters in an animated show, with 1,768.

Despite this, along with the fact it has a pretty in-depth page on here, it hasn't been adapted into English in the West...until this year.

As a bid for Tubi, the streaming service that was recently bought by Fox, six Anpanman movies will be dubbed into both English and Spanish for the first time.

I personally think this is great, since the only other English release this show got was a dub in India that is lost media by now. I'm personally excited to see who they choose for the voice cast. Being manned by Fox could soup up the budget, but Tubi also has the rights to air Viz Media and Funimation works as well, so that could decide it as well. Either way, it's nice to see an older anime being finally brought to the West like this.

Given Conan, I'm more inclined to believe TMS would send this to Bang Zoom. Though, I suppose SDI is a possibility if they want a one-stop-shop for both versions.

Seems there's a panel set for the virtual NYCC for Anpanman, so hopefully some upcoming news there! (Click on the October 11th link, it's the last panel there)
