I don't have any major problems with the dubbing at all, to be honest; everyone performs their roles excellently, and Lisa Ortiz does an outstanding job directing them. The only issue I have is that the lipsync is sometimes iffy, but otherwise her debut NYAV Post production is great.

That said, the movie, although absolutely stunning to look at, is also very, very, very flawed. The storyline can't seem to decide what it wants to be: a teenage love comedy? A sci fi story? A rebellion at school involving cellphones? Or all in one? Whatever it tries to be, the end result is a very messy, confusing tale that leaves a lot of strands dangling and/or unresolved. That and the principal characters are among some of the more detestable I've seen in any recent Anime to date; the only character I liked was Kahori, but even then, she doesn't have much of a personality. I really wanted to enjoy this movie, I really did, but with a plot this disjointed and nobody involved worth caring about, it's a major disappointment considering the love and care put into the animation.

@JTurner Unfortunately this would be a case of trying to put too many element on too short a time

@GreenGoblin75 God this talent pool is so incredibly underrated, especially when it comes to dubs, which seriously couldnt hurt from that inclusive talent pool. I love NYAV & I wish more shows, especially big ones like JJBA or HxH, used them more often.

Here's hoping FUNi cooperates them for future dubs.

@GreenGoblin75 Were they all cooling off or something?

@Dee15gon It is more expensive to go bi-coastal than it is to do local recording. Anime dubs, according to Justin Sevakis, havent recovered since the 2006-7 downfall of the industry, & that's likely because subtitled streaming is a thing, & it is much cheaper & makes much more for the JP companies, than dubbing & sharing profits with TV networks.

Stephanie Sheh has said that it's not really a valley or peak, but just a permanent low, that we all have to get used to. It is why we now no longer get union LA dubs, next to no Studiopolis dubs, nothing in Vancouver, & NYAV only occasionally get used. Everything either goes non-union in Texas, or non-union in LA. Budgets are even tinier than 2002-6-ish, & recording schedules & everything shorter & faster.

Everyone in New York works on audiobooks, commercials, occasional video games , & (duh) Broadway. But anime specifically is a much tinier industry & largely we can't afford spending any more money or there's always a cheaper company that'll get the licenses.

@Dee15gon Would you mind elaborting? I'm not quite sure I understand you here, unfortunately...

@huzaifa_ahmed That sounds tough.

It's clear enough that dubs are steadily improving over time, and more appreciated as time goes on. "Budget" isn't really a concern.

Multicasting occurs way more often back then, even with union dubs, simply because the dubbing pool wasn't that big. However... every year, more newcomers join the dubbing pool. And if those newcomers happens to be a director's favorite, word gets spread out and they'll get cast in more and more productions.

When a company could get to the point where every character could have an individual VA and putting in the effort to surpass the original castings in terms of diversity, I could confidently tell you, that Funimation is going in the right direction.

Budget hardly matters when the end result is what matters the most. It's obvious that we don't need celebs to voice act in anime. The director's competence is what dictates a dub's quality. That's all I have to say.

Finally got to see this film today and generally enjoyed it. It was most definitely very pretty with its backgrounds and the characters were entertaining but its plot got a little too confusing and abstract in places.

The dub by NYAV Post is solid though and the four leads do really well. Shame the rest of the cast haven't been officially announced as a few of them (like Kyogoku's Familiar) sounded so familiar but I couldn't figure them out.

@JRPictures Do you know where I could stream the dub? Funimation has it on blu ray but its not available for streaming on there site. Or is buying it the only way to watch it?
said at 8:45 PM on Mon Sep 5 2016
@kb24lol Funimation will be releasing the film on DVD/Blu-ray in November, and it'll likely be streaming on their site around then as well.

You're gonna have to wait, unless you import the British or Australian releases (the latter I have since I live in Aus)
