Didn`t even know this show existed until last year. Was this show supposed to be a parody of the main series?

@Mr. Kite not exactly its a spin off mostly focusing on Rock Lee but based in a chibi style

According to Robbie Daymond's Twitter picture, he is the dub-over for Itachi & Deidara here.

I'm surprised Laura Bailey didn't appear in this.

@Joel the Pokekid Even some of the smaller names didn't appear in this...apparently the scheduling (or pay) was just THAT bad.

Along with the rushed JJBA dub, & (apparently) rushed-for-TV HxH dub, this is a REALLY bad sign for Viz finances.

IMO could use a crowdfund.

@huzaifa_ahmed Correct me if I'm wrong, but the dub of JJBA up to this point was done by Warner Brothers.

@SNaG DVD distribution. WB dubbed RWBY, & I mean that dub is great. Kaka shi'a in it, even, despite RWBY being not even too popular in Japan.

Yeah, this dub (& all of JoJo's NA licensing is Viz. they're owned by Shueisha- it only makes sense. FUNi only got OP because they were lucky enough to get Dragon Ball & not butcher it (well, in terms of sales).

@huzaifa_ahmed Ah, you're right.

I'm not sure how rushed it all was (appreciate a source on if JJBA dub was rushed), but I think the main issue was the meh direction. I dunno who directed the test dub of Stardust Crusaders, but it was miles ahead of the quality of Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency IMO.

@SNaG The source for the rushed JJBA dub was a Ben Diskin interview. I'll link it when I find it.

SC was a totally different production than the other two. (You can ask the cast of the dub who the director was, on Twitter)

The name of the director was Kevin MacMullen. Very few credits, & I'm not sure exactly why it was the way it was.

I only recommend crowdfunds so much because I'd really like to help out with these things.

I can't be the only one curious about the all the cast changes, right? I'd say it's because this dub isn't union, but many of the actors they replaced, such as Ben Diskin and Liam O'Brien, are ficore. I'm gonna say it was scheduling.
said at 6:49 PM on Sun Mar 6 2016
@BioZero216 But half the cast was changed¬°¬° Not just 1 or 2, HALF. No way it could be a schedule problem. Besides, the original didn't change at that time, so they kept recording with the usual people. My guess is this dub was made in someplace different than the orginal one.

@Marakutanay My guess is that most of the main series' voices' didn't want to do this.
said at 6:51 PM on Sun Apr 3 2016
@Ichigo341578926 I have a feeling that Viz is unfortunately REALLY running low on funds these days, & had awful studio time & scheduling for this; it doesn't seem to have been a priority...they are also doing similarly with the HxH dub.
