Sentai has also acquired the rights to the film Fragtime!! (released this month in Japan). To-Love Ru English dub will be available in March 2020. Made in Abyss the Movie: Dawn of the Deep Soul has been mentioned but so far only has a 2020 date.

Am I the only one who thinks the dub sucks especially Rito? Generally not a fan of dubs though so might just be me. Also I wonder if they plan to also pick up OVAs as those are really important in To Love Ru and has been ignored in previous releases.

The special is a (kinda) remake of the anime beginning. As such it's hanging expecially disjointed to the rest.
The movies themselves are also quite loose from the rest, too. The only thing they kinda align with the series is the amount of content they expect you to know in terms of character background stories. But other than that they are like anime-filler arcs that could have aired the same release year. (Aside from the fact that the movies are more bombastic and action-focused and Conan is almost always a total Gary Sue in them.)
With so many around and many of the earlier ones looking fairy dated now, can't say it's too bad of a choice to start with a more recent one.

Interesting to note is that Berserk 2016 is being released through Funimation, even though Universal Sony originally licensed it in Australia, and it was announced alongside Drifters (a Universal release in EU and AU), so maybe the Universal European license for Berserk has been cancelled?

Nice catch.
Never imagened their would be a Blu-ray for Anne of Green Gables, however it's a little confusing that it is advertised as Sub-only as there is an English dub avaiable (however, the rights belong to a German or Austrian company).
Also happy to see the Accel World Movie coming to Region B - maybe MVM will follow?

Not sure, it also says "the classic film", so maybe it's just the 2010 compilation film, which I don't think has the dub?

No - the series was dubbed:

(Youtube channel by Studio100 Media GmbH, Munich, Germany - the current rights holders of the English dub)

OMFG, Anne on BD with sub, so JP audio?!

... Oh. Just a movie?
Wonder of it might be the Road to Green Gables movie. But the cover is from the series DVD box.
