Today FUNimation announced it’s Broadcast Dubs of the summer season’s most popular shows, 6 in all, 3 new. What is a Broadcast Dub and why should you care?

Broadcast Dubs is FUNimation’s term for shows that are currently airing in Japan, and streaming on FUNimation in a subbed form that they have started to dub and release as the show is on going. This means you don’t have to wait months just to watch the dubbed version of a show, but weeks. It’s pretty impressive the turnaround FUNimation has been able to do on these shows.

Now that the idea of a Broadcast Dub is out of the way, let’s get into what we get this season. Out of the 20 they are currently steaming, 6 of them will have Broadcast Dubs. 3 of these shows are carry over from the spring season, that being The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Ninja Slayer, and Ultimate Otaku Teacher. The 3 new ones being Gangtsta. (yes, that period is part of the title), Sky Wizards Academy, and Prison School. The first two being ones I personally am watching, and enjoy watching each week. The only other ones I might like watching of dub, or at least continue to watch every week is Overlord, and then secondly Snow White with the Red Hair. I’ve also started catching up to Chaos Dragon, but I’d say it would go in that order of importance. Anyways, you can catch the casts and a preview of the three new shows below.

Gangsta.

Summary: In a city filled with sin and scandal, Worick and Nicolas have made a name for themselves as men who can get the job done. As a super-powered Twilight Nic has no problem getting his hands dirty, but when the situation requires a little more charm Worick is ready to use his own unique skills to keep the situation under control.
