Akiba's Trip

Funimation has made an announcement about the SimulDub of Akiba’s Trip. They plan to have the English dub ready to view thirty minutes after it airs in Japan. It was noted that the thirty minutes is what they would like, and that there maybe times where they will not meet this time. Here’s the show’s description from Funimation:

“Based off the hit game comes a new series about the danger lurking in the Otaku heaven of Akihabara. Vampires with an ability to take over anyone they bite seek their prey in this anime fan’s paradise. When Tamotsu Denkigai encounters one, he nearly loses his life until the mysterious Matome Mayonaka revives him! Now part vampire, he forms a group to protect the streets of Akiba.”

Akiba’s Trip will premiere on January 4.


About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    That’s awesome. This service indicates that the West is just as viable market as Japan when it comes to anime consumption. The quick dubs are a bit of trend recently.

      The West IS a viable market, international licensing is more profitable than the domestic market, but there is still the myth that BD and merchandise is all the revenue and streaming is irrelevant, which is disproven by the simple fact that as you pointed out subs/dubs are on the rise.
      The problem is that international licensing is also a mess, unless you live in USA.
