Re: FUNimation Fall 2012 Survey
I just finished the survey. Certainly some interesting questions. Especially the Sub Only thing.
It's clear that for Sentai and NIS Sub Only is working for them. Funimation would be pretty stupid to ignore that fact. I do agree that it is unlikely under the Funimation Brand that they would release anything Subtitle only. It's too strong a link that if an Anime gets licensed by Funimation it gets dubbed. The question isn't even asked. I doubt Funimation would want to break that as its less hassle for them.
BUT i can totally see them opening up a new brand for sub only sets. A brand that only true industry followers would know was linked to Funimation. Separate everything but keep it in house. So separate Industry Panels, Logo's, Website Listings etc. I think people should want Funimation to do this too. If they do it means we'll get more shows.
Also it would make sense for them when it comes to judging weather to take a show they are streaming and license it for home video release. They could easily set out to goals to hit. One for sub only and the other gets the dub.
Like i said the success of Sentai and NIS Sub releases is I think becoming harder and harder to ignore for Funimation.
