There are a few fairly large fandubbing communities out there, still, although they've been tending towards radio dramas and original projects (radio, animated shorts, and visual novel-style games) for the last few years... It's mostly divided between the people who go "omg anime I wanna be a voice ...

Anyone have any info on a season 2 OST? My playlist wants that organ song SO badly.



EDIT: Answering my own question: release date is apparently 3/3/10. I don't wanna wait that long!

Yeah, I got the LIAR GAME vibe, too, although, I also was thinking Death Note at the same time. I think I described it to my roommate as LIAR GAME, Death Note, and Law and Order all mixed together.

This looks like it's going to be amazing. Can't wait to see it....~~~ (I mean, with a title like "Witch Trial" it's gotta be either amazing, or terrible. Seeing that cast, it's going to be quite the former. Plus, theme song by Fukuyama? Yes, please.)

It looks like it will be entertaining enough to laugh at, at the worst. At best, it'll be an interesting AU adventure with some cool make up that will expose more people to Japanese pop culture through an American lens.

I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what they do with it, good or bad.
