Gunbuster getting rereleased with an English dub thanks to Discotek

Recommended Posts

 



Discotek continues to give old heads lots of well, old material.

'Bout time they gave this one a dub. I remember being so confused and irritated at it not getting one the first time it was released stateside.

Gunbuster is just NOW getting a dub? Why wasn't it dubbed into English before? I watched it on Veoh ONCE and it was subbed. I see no reason why it shouldn't have gotten a dub before Discotek got their hands on it.

Bandai Visual didn't think a dub was worth it, I guess.

Why, though? What did Bandai Vi$ual U$A think was going to happen?

I never bought anything from them except for the Blu-ray release of Wings of Honneamise, and that was well after they folded. I had previously bought the Manga Entertainment DVD and upgraded last year. I also managed to find a good deal on the Blu-ray disc.

Not too thrilled to see who could replace Norio Wakamoto, but I’m sure they’ll probably pick a good cast out.

Bu... but I thought the lack of existing separate SFX tracks is what prevented it from getting dubbed for years. Did someone actually find the multitrack audio masters?

Why didn't Bandai dub it when they had the chance!??

This is the same Discotek that found the original Project A-Ko workprint decades after it was considered lost and scoured the Internet and old VHS collections for obscure European dubs.  If anyone could do it, it’s them.

Toonami, you guys better get this...

It's old as shit, but we're currently in yet another round of Anno fever with the last Rebuild out, so who knows?

The original Japanese cast apparently re-recorded the series several years ago for a BD release, presumably because they didn't have separate audio tracks in the original, so I'd assume Discotek is using that material.
