"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 musume

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!

Hi! I'm wondering if your current store prices are the constant price? Since I see that the original price is kind of high, I'm wondering because my wallet can't take another hit. Or if I can just come back with my next paycheck and buy ;_;

Kat

I noticed Bryson Baugus will make his debut lead role in the DanMachi dub. Any other up-and-coming voice actors you guys want to give a shout out to?

Gregory Guillen

We wouldn't ruin a surprise like that on ask.fm. C'mon: our actors deserve better.

Will more Sub-Only DVD releases be given Bluray Upgrades (regardless if Dubbed or not) this year? Hoping to see Psychic Squad make it so it can match Unlimited Psychic Squad on Bluray but there are other series as well - Akikan for example. :)

Jimmy G.

Sometimes it depends on whether or not there are Blu-ray materials for that. For example: Azumanga Daioh. We released it as a Sentai Selects DVD because there were no BD materials for this title. There are lots of reasons why a BD can't be released to the market, but for the most part, we try our hardest to get you guys the BD treatment.

Question about the School-Live Limited Ed. announced recently. On the disc cases, will the inside spines be labeled? I want to flip the covers when I put it on my shelf (personal preference).

SirYodaJedi

We haven't released the final designs for that particular set yet.

OMG I LOVE YOU GUYS chivalry of a failed knight finally is coming, when is the release tho?

Lolleman

I always wonder how you chose who to cast in certain voice roles in anime dubs? What factors are there? How many recording sessions are done, and how long does it take to produce an anime dub?

Naftali Poritz

That's a lot of questions, and none of which have a "constant" answer. The short answer is: it depends. The length of the show, the number of lines per episode, and amount of characters all play into how long it takes to complete each dub. Casting, though, is helmed almost entirely by the director's creative genius.

How are you guys going to announce english dubs from here on out? Separately throughout the year or all at once like your past video? https://youtu.be/Rn4MyfZ5sqw

Luis Murillo

Mwuahahaha. That depends on timing. We would like to announce in bulk like in the past, but we think that elements of surprise throughout the year are nice too.

Hey Sentai, I've noticed that you didn't answered my question, so I'm going to ask again, Is there any chance of you licensing Grimoire of Zero, regardless of the poll results? Link to poll result here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/battlebrigade/permalink/526341807562850/

Navarro Jose Orozco

Those are awesome poll results, but we don't actually know. The season is still fresh, so we'll just have to wait and see.
