    And I continue to ask, dubbed or subbed Sentai? I really loved what I saw of Love Lab on Crunchyroll, but like all things… no dub means no sale for me. 🙁

      … and there are people who tell me there isn’t a market for people who prefer dubs. From what I saw it was just subbed which is sad. Anime is a niche market in America as is and just appealing to people who just want subs is a mistake in my eyes. It also maybe that it would be cheaper to just release it subbed if the appeal of the show wouldn’t be enough of a risk.
      I’ve never watched Love Lab so I can’t say if it has mass-appeal or not, so I’m guessing it might be a cost effective way just to release it? Because dubbing requires hiring actors, ADR people, and its own process in of it’s self. It is sad that so many anime/video games come over without English voice actors doing voices as voice actors need work. I have this problem with Koei-Tecmo products.

        I realize dubbing is expensive, but Sentai often decides not to dub a good majority of their titles. The sad thing about that is I have very few Sentai produces because I feel like I’m missing out. As a consumer why would I spend money on a product that offers me less than another anime DVD? I’d much rather put my anime allowance to products that give me more, so other companies just get my money instead.

        Granted, there are some people that aren’t bothered by this, but I am one of them.
