    I usually really like the Ghibli dubs, and given that this is set in England I would love it if Studio Canal made another separate British dub like they did with Arriety.

    It's not distributed by Studio Canal over here so they certainly won't be dubbing it.

    Ahh okay I'd missed that news, kind of assumed that Studio Canal would still be handling European distribution given because of the film's connection to Ghibli.

    It appears that Altitude films are based in London? (from what I can see on their site) so hopefully a British dub isn't too far-fetched.

    If it gets a dub then it will attract families and increase the exposure with more screens willing to promote and show it.

    It's the sort of film that's screaming out for a dub. Mass market potential.

    I dont think it was a question of it getting an english dub, but the poster wanting it to receive a British dub for the accents.

    I would be more appropriate given the setting. Something like the Arietty dub would do nicely

    It is, I shall admit, somewhat surreal to see people discussing British dubs in anime without speaking on a strictly hypothetical basis any more.

    I'm glad studio canal won't be handling it after the way they cocked up When Marnie Was There and tried to down play it.

    Very happy about these two! (Graineliers is by Rihito Takarai but is not BL; it's published by Square Enix.)

    Some new Viz Media licenses: Nisekoi spin-off Magical Patissier Kosaki-chan, comedy series We Never Learn which I think might be a harem manga, and Robot x Laserbeam, a manga about golf from the creator of Kuroko's Basketball (so expect gay golfers).
