    Now that the dust has settled, time for me to do my usual seasonal dub list and outlook. Once again, I only list shows that are streaming somewhere legally in North America (so that means Sunohara-sou and Aguu aren't going to appear), only shows that are starting this season (i.e. if it aired last season, it's not going to appear here), and no shorts that are less than half-length.

    Dubbed
    Angels of Death (Funimation Simuldub)
    Attack on Titan season 3 (Funimation Simuldub)
    Back Street Girls (Netflix)
    Baki (Netflix)
    Dies Irae (Funimation Simuldub)
    Free! Dive to the Future (Funimation Simuldub)
    Future Card Buddyfight Ace
    Hanebado (Funimation Simuldub)
    Harukana Receive (Funimation Simuldub)
    High Score Girl (Netflix)
    How Not to Summon a Demon Lord (Funimation Simuldub)
    Island (Funimation Simuldub)
    Lord of Vermillion: The Crimson King (Funimation Simuldub)
    The Master of Ragnarok and Blesser of Einherjar (Funimation Simuldub)
    Mr. Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues (Sentai Dubcast)
    Overlord III (Funimation Simuldub)
    Revue Starlight (Sentai Dubcast)
    Sirius the Jaeger (Netflix)
    Sword Gai season 2 (Netflix)

    Very Likely for a Dub
    Banana Fish
    Cells at Work!

    Somebody's going to dub Banana Fish, but the question is who and when as right now there are just too many unknowns with how Amazon plans to go about dubbing and releasing the shows. Seeing that Viz is releasing the manga and are so dedicated to it that I have to think they will try hard to get the home video rights. With Cells at Work, it's one of this season's biggest hits, and with the potential for it being watched for educational purposes, it makes a lot of sense to dub it.

    50/50 Chance
    Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion
    Asobi Asobase
    Grand Blue Dreaming
    Seven Senses of the Re'Union

    Angolmois has potential, and seeing that it is doing decently that Crunchyroll could eventually decide to dub it. Asobi Asobase has been a great show, but dubbing it will be really hard as there is a lot of wordplay and stuff going on. It's a wise move to pass on simuldubbing this as it's one that is just all sorts of difficult to dub. Grand Blue Dreaming has been solidly received, so I can see it dubbed. Seven Senses of the Re'Union has the premise as people see this as a combination of SAO and Anohana, but at the same time with Amazon in charge, a lot depends on the home video licensor.

    Longshot for a Dub
    Dropkick on My Devil!
    Happy Sugar Life
    Holmes of Kyoto
    Phantom in the Twilight
    Planet With

    Pretty much these titles are shows that haven't been well-received, but have some marketability to them, so longshot sounds about right with these, though I might move Happy Sugar Life up because of how outside-the-box this show has been.

    Fuhgeddaboudit
    100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams
    Encouragement of Climb Third Season
    Late Night! Genius Bakabon
    Music Girls
    The Thousand Musketeers
    We Rent Tsukumogami
    Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs

    All of these shows are simply to niche to warrant a dub. Of these, Yuuna has the best chance of getting a dub, but with so many more deserving Aniplex shows that I highly doubt it gets one. While Sentai has been dubbing more stuff, 100 Sleeping Princes and Musketeers just have way too narrow of an audience to make them worth dubbing.

      Now that pretty much all the shows have been spoken for (there's a chance that Million Arthur could be picked up late or Sentai doing a dubcast for another one of their titles), it's time I do my usual seasonal dub assessment. Like always, I only list shows that are picked up for streaming somewhere (or in the case of Netflix, shows that Netflix has exclusive streaming rights to in Japan at least), and the episodes are at least half-length.

      Dubbed
      Ace Attorney season 2 (Funimation Simuldub)
      Bloom Into You (Sentai Dubcast)
      A Certain Magical Index III (Funimation Simuldub)
      Conception (Funimation Simuldub)
      Double Decker! Doug and Kirill (Funimation Simuldub)
      Fairy Tail Final Season (Funimation Simuldub)
      Goblin Slayer (Funimation Simuldub)
      Golden Kamuy season 2 (Funimation Simuldub)
      Hero Mask (Netflix)
      Hinomaru Sumo (Funimation Simuldub)
      Ingress (Netflix)
      JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind (Viz)
      Radiant (Funimation Simuldub)
      Release the Spyce (Sentai Dubcast)
      RErideD (Funimation Simuldub)
      Space Battleship Tiramisu II (Funimation Simuldub)
      SSSS.Gridman (Funimation Simuldub)
      Sword Art Online: Alicization (Aniplex, all previous seasons dubbed)
      That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Funimation Simuldub)
      Tokyo Ghoul:re (Funimation Simuldub)
      Tsurune (Sentai Dubcast)
      Ulysses: Jeanne d'Arc and the Alchemist Knight (Funimation Simuldub)
      Zombie Land Saga (Funimation Simuldub)

      Great Chance for a Dub
      Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai
      Run With the Wind

      These are two sport shows with highly reputable production teams working on them, both licensed by Sentai. Seeing that Sentai has been dubbing stuff with lower profiles like Mitsuboshi Colors and Real Girl, there's a pretty great chance these two will get it. Especially Tsurune since having KyoAni attached to it makes it worthwhile. As for Bunny Girl Senpai, this show has been well-received, and seeing that it's in-line with other greats like Your Lie in April and Anohana, I think that Aniplex will dub it.

      50/50 Chance
      Boarding School Juliet
      Iroduku: The World in Colors
      Uzamaid!

      Juliet and Iroduku I would move both of them higher, but it all depends on home video licenses since Amazon hasn't been willing to dub stuff themselves. Uzamaid has what it takes to get dubbed with the great comedy, but at the same time it depends on where the home video license goes.

      Longshot for a Dub
      As Miss Beelzebub Likes
      Between the Sea and Sky
      Gakuen Basara
      Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary

      Aniplex is probably going to end up distributing Miss Beelzebub much like how Kiznaiver was distributed, but the chances of a home video release seem slim, and even so I can't see a dub coming. If it weren't tied into another franchise, Gakuen Basara would have no shot at a dub. But since it's a spinoff of the Sengoku Basara series that there's an outside chance it gets dubbed. As for the remaining shows, they all have some bits of appeal that might get consideration, but I'm not expecting any of them to get dubbed.

      Fuhgeddaboudit
      Anima Yell!
      Bakumatsu
      Dakaichi: I am being harassed by the sexiest man of the year
      Fist of the Blue Sky: Regenesis
      The Girl in Twilight
      Himote House
      Ms. Vampire Who Lives in My Neighborhood
      ​​​​​​​My Sister, My Writer
      Skull-faced Bookkeeper Honda-san
      Voice of Fox

      Pretty much, there's no reason to believe that a dub is in sight for any of these shows. Aniplex will most definitely not dub Dakaichi because of its limited appeal, all while The Girl in Twilight appears to be Sentai's least watched show of the season for good reason. Himote, Honda-san, and Voice of Fox are half-length shorts that I don't see ever getting home video releases. Bakumatsu is for fujoshis only and even so, it's a boring show. Anima Yell and Ms. Vampire are just another cute girls show without much else going for it, and then I don't think anybody would want to touch My Sister, My Writer with a ten foot pole as it's another one of those shows with Imouto in it that is usually trashy.

        If any company wants to start a Kickstarter for the dub of either of these series, I would drop four digits in a heartbeat. These were my top 2 of Summer 2018 for VERY different reasons. Would love them dubbed to find a bigger audience.

        Also, thanks for doing this every season Buckeye!

          Well, I usually make up this list after the first month of the season, and that time, those two shows just didn't stand out. But they got much better as the season went on, so I think at least Planet With is going to get a dub by somebody.

            Well before Mommy (Crunchyroll) and Daddy (Funimation) got a divorce, I would have assumed/hoped it would get the Magical Girl Raising Project treatment... maybe Sentai will pick it up?

              And that's exactly what's happening. I just updated my seasonal dub outlook post to reflect that, and pretty soon I'll compile a list of dubs that came out in 2018 as everything that has been announced is going to get dubbed will most likely be released in 2019.

                So now that 2018 is coming to an end, it's time I compile a list of 2018 dubs. So in making this list, I have these criteria in place as to whether a show is included as part of this year's dubs or another year's:
                • For TV series that got a simuldub or dubcast, as well as those whose dubs premiered on Toonami, it is based on the year the first episode came out. So that means shows like Fairy Tail Final Season, Bloom Into You, and Megalo Box are included even though their show's dubbed episodes continue into 2019. This also excludes such shows where the first episode came out in 2017 or earlier and continue into 2018 like The Ancient Magus' Bride and Pokemon Sun and Moon.
                • For TV series whose dub premiered with the release of the BD, it is based on the scheduled release date of the first volume (if applicable) or when the whole dub (at least up to the episodes in the first volume BD release) is available to stream, whichever comes first. There are some shows that put the first few episodes up for streaming ahead of time, but again it's based on the BD release schedule. Also, if the first volume of the show is released on year and a subsequent part is released in another year, it is listed based on when the first part came out.
                • For movies, it is based on when the dub premiered in theaters. If the movie is not screened, it will go by the BD release date.

                  If you're including ongoing shows, FUNi also has Dragon Ball Super and One Piece, and Viz has been continuing Hunter X Hunter, Sailor Moon, and Naruto Shippuden.

                    There's been no dub announced for Penguin Highway as of right now, I'm not doubting that there may be one for it in 2019 but it certainly doesn't qualify for the list.
