I'll be surprised if they even dub the ovas
I could honestly see VIZ dubbing the OVA for the Blu-Ray release (albeit with a recast Rohan).

H Jon Benjamin as Broly
I know we got James Marsters as Zamasu, but I'd imagine that Funimation would want someone they can get on the regular, especially if they want to swap out Canon Broly's VA for DBFZ as quickly as possible.

I heard that there was a recent twist in AoT that was pretty yikes which lead me to read up on the author and Nope'd pretty hard. I guess the Germanic feel wasn't purely an aesthetic choice.
Regarding Isayama, I don't think those rumors were ever proven.

If they were real, he'd have to do some mental gymnastics with his work.

Dear Twitter idiots,

Vic didn't get fired because he wasn't a funimation employee, funimation just ain't working with him anymore.
Only once Vic has an Ace Attorney style breakdown will the truth truly be revealed.

Wasn't the last game hot garbage? Are people surprised this probably won't be very good either?
J-Stars wasn't great, but I was able to overlook most of its flaws since it was meant to be a fun crossover/celebrating 45 years of Shonen Jump. This....just feels like all the life was sucked out of J-Stars and made somehow worse.

If I win or get a free copy of Jump Force, I'll play it (hell, I should start writing some practice reviews for games I've been playing), but man, I'm super glad I canceled my pre-order of the deluxe edition. This game is gonna go down in price rather quickly.

I think the roster just feels even more of a bummer now that I remember this is meant to be the 50th anniversary game. This game is meant to be a celebration of half a century of a magazine that has had so many iconic franchises be introduced to the world.

Yet the 45th anniversary game on PS3 feels like it has a more diverse roster. The oldest series in Jump Force is Fist of the North Star in 83 with only City Hunter, Dragon Ball, Dragon Quest, & Saint Seiya also being from the '80s.

AGAIN, I GET IT, roster was chosen due to popularity among a western audience, but this just makes me fear the season pass isn't going to add any new franchises & just be all "yeah, here's another DBZ character and another Naruto character"

That was not the impression I got the moment Luffy swung up to that American flag.

There must be a balance in the universe.

We got the excellence of FighterZ, so now the world needs Jump Force.
.....why in the FUCK didn't they just be all "hey, let's take DB Fighterz & just have the roster be more Shonen Jump characters?"

I feel like I'm less mad at how Jump Force turned out & more mad at what it could've been.

So Black Clover might end with 102 episodes. (That's all that's been confirmed so far. Could go farther, but then they'd be pushing up against the manga.)

SAO will end with 25 (24?) episodes, and then it's second half will start up eventually. (Will probably return next year I wanna guess.)

Oh, so Alicization is not a straight 50 episodes huh
