So with the summer 2015 season almost coming to the end, some may wonder what anime will most likely get a dub, and most likely wouldn't in the near future. With that being said, here are a list of titles I predict will get English dubs and which ones wouldn't. With that in mind, here are my predictions on what titles will most likely get dubs and what will not. Keep in note that this does not include continuations from the previous season.

Broadcast Dubs: If Funimation really wants to be crazy about it this season, pretty much every title except Bikini Warriors, Venus Project, Seiyu's Life, Junjo Romantica 3, Castle Town Dandelion.

Ah yes, Funimation, how much I've enjoy your large dedicated anime fanbase of yours. Anyways, if Funimation is really dedicated to their Broadcast Dubs, I'm expecting them to dub nearly most of their titles, but like the previous seasons, they may leave a few titles without Broadcast Dubs. While fanservice is usually a big seller for Funimation, I honestly cannot see Venus Project or Bikini Warriors getting Broadcast Dubs since these two titles aren't prominent enough to justify so, especially for Bikini Warriors since the episodes are about 5 minutes per episode (if you ask me, yes, Funimation will most likely do a Broadcast dub the newest Hetalia season since they know that there is a large dedicated fanbase for this series). Seiyu's Life is an anime about voice acting, and each episode has a Japanese voice actor cameo, so it's very unlikely Funimation will do a Broadcast Dub for this one. And besides, not even Funimation has an ADR Director or a script writer who is clever enough to translate and dub Seiyu's Life (not to mention, the American anime voice acting side of things do not have an English speaking counterpart to Rie Kugimiya and Masako Nozawa). Castle Town Dandelion is a Manga Time Kirara title, so it's pretty much given it's not going to get a Broadcast Dub. Because the previous two seasons of Junjo Romantica were licensed by Right Stuf as sub-only releases, Funimation wouldn't bother taking the risk to dub the third season.

Across from that, not counting on the ones that have been confirmed to get Broadcast Dubs, most of Funimation's catalog should get Broadcast Dubs, although I'm expecting Funimation to cut down on a number of the Broadcast Dubs (but I wouldn't surprised if Funimation still try to go overboard on this).

Aniplex USA (click here if you want to see the list, but if you are lazy, just scroll down to and read the list):
Very likely
Asterisk War
God Eater
Gunslinger Stratos
Mushishi: Next Passage
Persona 3


Probably not (may not even get a home video release)
Classroom Crisis
Day Break Illusion
Mekaku City Actors
Nanana's Buried Treasure
Plastic Memories
Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend
Samurai Flamenco

Aniplex's dubbing decisions are fairly predictable, and they normally dub mostly popular titles (unless if there are titles that would cause some sort of controversy like Oreimo, Valvrave, and Mahouka) and they are least likely to re-release anime with English dubs (imports don't count). Classroom Crisis, Day Break Illusion, Mekaku City Actors, Nanana's Buried Treasure, Plastic Memories, Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, and Samurai Flamenco are pretty much given to be sub-only release and some may not even have home video releases. Mushishi: Next Passage and Persona 3 are very likely to get English dubs since these titles are reasonably popular to justify them and both have pre-existing dubs for Aniplex USA to look into (esepcially for Mushishi where Aniplex USA can get Travis Willingham to reprise his old role). God Eater and Asterisk Wars are good non-Durarara!! titles for Aniplex USA to explore into simuldubbing. Gunslinger Stratos, despite being not well-received and not that popular, is very likely will get an English dub since it has Gen Urobuchi's name in it (despite his very limited involvement in this series) and Aniplex USA has a tradition of dubbing stuff with Urobuchi's name in it.

Perhaps the most difficult prediction for me is Charlotte. The reason being that because Aniplex USA isn't exactly the company to think of that would give a slow paced character-driven drama an English dub, especially from a work made by Key Visual Arts/Jun Maeda. A lot of stuff Aniplex USA dubs are either action titles or any anime with Gen Urobuchi's name in it. Even Durarara!!, an anime that is considered more mystery and slice of life, have some degree of action scenes in the series. And when it comes to Key Visual Arts anime getting English dubs, it's usually Sentai Filmwork's Seraphim Digital Studios that does the dubbing. And I have to admit, the Houston talent pool does a pretty good job when it comes to dubbing anime done by Jun Maeda and Key Visual Arts. On the other hand, the very fact that Jun Maeda and Key Visual Arts is involved, and the fact it's currently one of the most popular Summer 2015 anime titles (consistent with being in one of the top ten) does hold some justifications of Charlotte getting an English dub. Hence, this is why it's more of a 50/50 chance of getting an English dub rather than a "very likely."

That being said, the fate of Charlotte getting an English dub lies within another character driven drama, which is Your Lie in April. Providing if Patrick Seitz does a good job with the ADR Direction AND have reasonable sales, it's very likely Aniplex USA would take the risk and dub Charlotte. Keep in note that Aniplex USA dubbing a character-driven drama like Your Lie in April is relatively new to them. If things doesn't go well with Your Lie in April, there are still favorable factors that would give Charlotte an English dub as mentioned above, but Aniplex USA would be a little more cautious on it. That being said, if anime like Toradora! and Nagi no Asukara can get English dubs from L.A. side of things, then so can Charlotte. But in any situation Charlotte gets an English dub, it'll most likely be the first Key Visual Arts anime title that gets an English dub from Bang Zoom instead of Seraphim Digital Studios.

Sentai Filmworks
Continuations that have dubs: Fate/Illya 2wei Herz, Gatchaman Crowds Insight
Continuations where the prequels were sub-only releases: Non Non Biyori Repeat, To Love-Ru TD2
Definite: Gate, Ushio and Tora
Very likely: Himouto! Umaru-chan
50/50: Aoharu x Machinegun, Monster Musume
Not in a million years: Wakaba Girls, School Live!

Well, this is interesting. Sentai Filmworks has picked up titles are far more predictable on which will get dubs, a huge change for them. Going with how Sentai Filmworks does business with their dubs, continuations that have pre-existing dubs will get one and continuations that doesn't won't. Gate and Ushio and Tora are relatively popular anime titles that will not only justify an English dub, but for Toonami airing as well. Himouto! Umaru-chan is very likely to get an English dub in a similar vein like Super Sonico since Sentai Filmworks is heavily promoting the show. Aoharu x Machinegun and Monster Musume does have some justifications of getting English dubs, but there are other factors that might not be convenient for Sentai Filmworks to dub them. Wakaba Girls and School Live! are slice of life anime titles, and barring a few exceptions (i.e. Kyoto Animation works), slice of life anime as a genre isn't popular in the American market (especially if you are dealing with Manga Time Kirara titles like School-Live!). And yes, even if School-Live ended up ranked as the number one anime title of the season, it's still too risky for Sentai Filmworks to dub School-Live! I'm glad that Funimation decided to skip School-Live! in their lineup and have it open for Sentai Filmworks since Funimation don't think School-Live! is popular enough to justify a Broadcast Dub.

Pony Canyon USA
Definite: Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers

Well, this is the only title Pony Canyon USA is streaming for this season. If you ask me, considering the fact that Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers is currently one of the top 10 popular Summer 2015 anime in the season, it's very likely Pony Canyon USA will dub this title. The fact that it's also an action title makes it very likely that Pony Canyon USA will try to do something bold and get some sort of Toonami airing deal here.
