I can't wait for this and NEO: TWEWY. I still don't fully believe we're getting the sequel and the anime after so many years, it's surreal.

Really looking forward to this. The show is looking pretty darn good from the previews we have.

If we do see a dub for this (yes I know, I'm stretching too far here) I wonder how that's gonna turn out in terms of cast. Will FUNi do it in-house and get some of the VA's from the game back or just do their own castings or will they farm it off to another dubbing studio (which is what they've been doing with some of their recent dubs, Akudama Drive for example)?

I guess it’ll depend on how many of the VAs have access to studio equipment or if they’re able to dub from home.

OMG I need to find a way to watch this. I hope they dub it in English for the April launch date.

As Oracle said previously, Funimation will be streaming it. You might be waiting a few weeks after it airs for the dub to come out though.

I can't afford FUNiMATION, so I will have to find some other way to find it. But thanks for confirming that the dub will be only a few weeks after. I can wait for the whole dub to come out.

They're saying that in the event there will be a dub. It hasn't been confirmed yet.

If there is a dub, it’ll likely air about a month or so after it airs in Japan.
To use another anime as an example, Horimiya(or Hori-san & Miyamura-kun), began airing its anime adaptation in January 10th and is currently 5 episodes in, while Funimation’s simuldub just started last week.

Also I've said this before, but there's a chance that it'll go though Crunchyroll too since Funi bought them; but no news on that yet. So don't worry about it.
Considering both Crunchyroll and Funimation are owned by Sony now, it’s definitely possible.
