Are you planning to get the licensing rights for two anime shows that came out this year, Nyanko Days and Hinako Note? I hope you guys get the licensing rights, as M.A.O, the voice of Papika from Flip Flappers also does the voice of Hinako, in Hinako Note. Just curious. Thanks.Fig Natoli-Guevara
We love M.A.O.! She also played the voice of Bada-chan in ClassicaLoid. We can't talk about unannounced licenses on social/Ask.fm, but it's good to know that there is interest in the two titles you mentioned.

Not familiar with the title you mentioned, as "Herlock Six" is not our database.
To get screening permissions for a convention, please reach out via the contact form and use the drop down menu to select "Convention Support." Make sure you tell us a little about the con you need them for, maybe send a URL to the convention website :)

Have you guys started making your limited sets more limited? I love your Premium Box Sets but with so many sales happening the last few months I find it hard not to wait a few months for a price drop.Gregory Guillen
Limited means limited: a set quantity. Once they gone, they GONE. The box set for Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions sold out about last year; Persona 4 the Animation is pretty much sold out, and we're thinking most of the No Game, No Life's will be gone by the end of this year too. We can't disclose the exact quantity of premium box sets created per title, but we only do one run. When they run out is up to the market.
Do you guys plan to opening up your store for international orders? Rightstuf offers international shipping so they may be able to help you guys out since they ship for you guys.Gregory Guillen
Several international fans have brought this up, and while we don't have an answer on any future plans for the Sentai Shop, we can say that we have noticed the demand.

By process of elimination, yes. And Ushio & Tora.
I wonder why the DVD/Blu-Ray release of Himouto! Umaru-chan does not contain the OVA?Naftali Poritz
We don't know the answer to this, but the DVD/BD release will contain a ton of extra content like Umaru-chan shorts, Banquet Mondays specials, and commentaries.
Senpai! How are you? Which girl from BanG Dream! is the best for you? I like Arisa...yeah I got a thing for Tsun Tsun girls XDDIvan Ampuero
Tsun Tsun girls for the win, but we kinda like how weird and random Tae is.

Almost all the #thedubsarecoming titles have been announced, when can we expect some dubs from anime from 2016?Tanaka-kun
Hmmmm... considering how well the element of surprise worked the FIRST time we released #thedubsarecoming, we think we won't answer this in favor of keeping it a surprise for the right time.
You should definitely release collector editions of the Chunibyo & Beyond The Boundary movies. With stuff like postcards and posters and a Dark Flame Master figure and a Rikka plushie and a Mirai figure and a... you get the idea right?Anime Nerd
We got the idea, but that's a pretty tall order! Fitting a Rikka plushie and a Mirai figure into a chipboard box? Thanks for letting us know that's what you want, but no promises! We're trying to get these movies out to you as soon as possible.
With you guys putting more of your shows on Anime Strike, does this mean you're not gonna put anymore shows on Hulu?Rachael Lynne Sadlier
Every show is dealt with on a case-by-case/show-by-show basis. Just because a show goes to one platform for a certain period of time doesn't mean that every show will follow the pattern.

Why did you guys dub Gintama episodes 266-316 when you haven't dubbed episodes 1-265?You31
We did not do the dub for the mentioned Gintama episodes. That was another company.
I am looking forward to the Himōto! Umaru-chan dub. Now I hear in Japan that its getting a second season this fall. Will you license and dub the second season as well?Naftali Poritz
WE HOPE SO!!!!!! No news yet, but we would LOVE more Umaru. (UMR YEAH! UMR YEAH!)
What is the status on the Legend of the Galactic Heroes release? The Ask Sentai section hasn't mentioned the title since 2015 and it's making me worried.Rusty Shackleford
Still being carefully, meticulously worked on. They talk SO MUCH. And it all had to be translated and localized. We're not going to forget a large, high profile project like that, but we also can't announce a date and then keep changing it, ya know?
"It's like... every dub. lol. It doesn't matter what their faces look like in the booth since no one will see those moments anyway." Not even in a the special features section of the Blu-ray release? (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge)SirYodaJedi
Your wink is asking for a little much, but thank you for the suggestion, nudger.

Is monster musume the next dub to be revealed, if you can't answer could you give a hint?Cody brooks
No. It will not. Right now, we're doing Utawarerumono: the False Faces. After that, it will be........ not Monster Musume.
Have there been any dubs where the voice actors could not keep a straight face? because I could not imagine the monster musume dub actors getting it on the first take, since it is monster musumeCody brooks
It's like... every dub. lol. It doesn't matter what their faces look like in the booth since no one will see those moments anyway.
Will you be able to include the OST in more releases in the future? Having the soundtrack is a big draw for No Game No Life and School Live.Alex Kim
We can certainly try. Unfortunately, for some titles, it just isn't possible for various reasons.
Senpai if you have the chance to go on a date with an anime character which one would it be?Ivan Ampuero
WHY YOU DOING THIS TO US IVAN. (...) Maybe Takumi Aldini from Food Wars! because he would cook us delicious food. OR! Kanae from ClassicaLoid!
