    Hype!

    As mentioned, this will be massively confusing for anyone who didn't manage to catch Koyomimonogatari though...

    Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny will be re-dubbed with NYAV Post. The reason for this is due to the Blu-ray master using new footage compared to the previous releases. They are apparently dubbing Seed at a pace of 4 episodes a week.

    Carrie Kearney as the voice director

    Max Mittelman as Kira Yamato
    Chris Hackney as Athrun Zala
    Stephanie Sheh as Lacus Lynne
    Sandy Fox as Haro

    Yay for Osomatsu-san, and double yay for Gundam SEED as I somehow missed the memo that the remaster was coming and nearly bought the JP sets a while ago.

    Iron-Blooded Orphans is separate from the whole Gundam deal that both Anime Limited & Rightstuf have. It was also handled by Anime Consortium Japan (and owns Daisuki) which Crunchyroll lists as the publisher on their service (alongside Gundam Unicorn Re:0096).

    Have no fear as I said this is just IBO, any future titles are with Rightstuf (like Thunderbolt and Origin).
