Anime Limited Looking for Feedback on Subtitle Only Releases


File this under slightly old (as its something that started last week) but Anime Limited have started a survey that asks fans whether or not they would be interested in purchasing subtitled only Anime movies.

The idea is that if enough people “agree” to buy English Subtitled only Anime movies than Anime Limited can release films onto DVD (and possibly Blu-ray) within three months of its initial Japanese DVD/BD Release. The reason this can happen is because Anime Limited will not have to wait for the movie to be dubbed by another company, such as FUNimation of Sentai Filmworks, and thus reduces the time it takes to bring it to the UK.

As you know, we’re big on consumer discussion and feedback here. We have a 4 question survey up for new film releases here.

Speed and cost wise we think we could have a Collectors Edition (think Cowboy Bebop / Perfect Blue packaging) out as little as 3 months after Japan for some film properties next year.

The catch being they’d be sub-only initially as we can’t dub EVERY film on our slate before the US (alas) so we want your opinions on some ideas we had!

Take some time and let us know your thoughts folks

Personally I prefer English Dubs over Subtitles, especially if the English Dub is done right, but if a title can be released so close to its initial Japanese release (and included special bonuses) then it is something worth considering, and judging from the reaction it seems Anime Limited are interested in this as well.
