Yeah 8k (actually it's closer to 9k) is not bad at all. It's pretty darn good. According to mania, it pass the estimation by 21%. Not bad at all!

Although got to say but UtaPri was surprisingly.... over 50,000!!! I have been watching the show and enjoyed it but dammn that's big.... anyways, yes second season is justified if this sales keep up! Whee!!

hm good point according to Wikipedia the actresses for the dub are already up there so im guessing its true although it is surprising considering that its been gone for only 2 weeks. Then again R2 aired a week after the original code geass and that's impossible unless it was already planned so u never know with this.

FUNimation has the streaming rights for the 1st Season of the Anime. Most of the time, they tend to get the Video Distribution rights if they see a lot of interest in the show. So perhaps rumors of a dub are based on this. As for the dubs...personally, I believe FUNimation has a terrible dub cast. But that's just me. So maybe rumors about the dub might be based on people's opinion regarding FUNimation.

Personally, I'm holding out hope that maybe NIS America will get the Video Distribution rights for the Anime. So that maybe the chance of the game getting localized might increase a bit, even though it might not happen at all.

the cast they've chosen for Date a live I agree is quite horrible for the characters but overall funimations problem isn't the casting its the cutting if you thought the Japanese dub was censored this American one will be censored so terribly its not even funny

I just noticed that the English dub's voice actors/actresses have been removed, which means it could be a fake... except for Mana.

I'm even more confused now.

EDIT: Remember when I said something about the Wikipedia article trolling us earlier? Yeah, it was about some Metarex thing added on 07:56, 11 June 2013 and removed quickly. Which means that this is probably another troll edit to the article.

Word of advice, don't believe everything that's on wikipedia. Anyway, I checked both ANN and My Anime List, there hasn't been any sort of an announcement about a english dubbed cast.

Lol, I thought as much. I always take unfamiliar stuff I come across with a pinch of salt anyway.

Somehow the Chinese Wikipedia article doesn't have as much trollish nonsense added as the English one, and on top of that the Chinese one has a lot more info than the English one.

An event with the seiyuus in Japan. Tickets is included with the vol 2 blu-ray.

Which means who ever is ordering the blu-ray has to do it asap.

I hope a S2 isn't too far away! Shows with source material are usually quite promising. This one was a good example.

Sales for the second week seem pretty strong.

BD Daily Ranks
*24 *25 *26 *27 *28 *29 *30 
*** *** *** **1 **1 **1 *** | -- | ONE PIECE FILM Z LE
*** *** *** **3 **2 **3 *** | -- | ONE PIECE FILM Z RE
*** **1 **1 **5 **3 **4 *** | -- | Utapri 2000% v1
*** **2 **2 **6 **7 **5 *** | -- | SAO v9
*** *** *** **2 **6 **6 *** | -- | Jojo v6
*** *** *** **4 **5 **7 *** | -- | Date A Live v1

Actually outsold UtaPri on the 27th and is competing well with JoJo Vol 6, something which should easily outsell what DAL did week 1, weird, though of course most sales would be day 1 but even than it should do a decent second week total.

Well, I thought this show was a disappointment in the first few episodes, but the show got a bit better in the third arc and the quality massively shot upwards in the final arc. Even without reading the source material, I feel that more could have been shown about the characters, such as the AST, particularly Origami and Mana. Is there really nothing to Origami other than her stalker-like creepy love behaviour and hatred for spirits (Efreet in particular?). Mana was also kind of just there, and although she brought up some interesting points (such as how both real siblings got hazy memories of their past), it never really got developed.

The plot was rushed, until the last two arcs. Although it's probably because they were rushing to Kotori's arc (and I can see why Kurumi's arc would be a bad place to end), I thought that they could have paced it a bit better. Things just moved a bit too quickly, in my opinion.

Fortunately, most of the comedy hit it's mark, so as a love comedy, it was a decent show. I'll definitely look out for season 2.

Well that's all because DAL hasn't gotten to those points yet at all; clearly we're going to get more on them at some point, but the novels haven't gotten to that point yet either, so since the anime is staying loyal to the novels, it never covered what the novels have yet to cover.
