Funimation's Shin Godzilla release: What do you want to see?5,496 Views2 RepliesAdd A Reply
The question is, are there any particular things you want to see from Funimation's Shin Godzilla Bluray and DVD release of the film? Special features, packaging, Collector's Editions, 4K Bluray, Particular voice actors for dubbing, etc.
I for one have an extensive list. For one, I am really optimistic about the English Dubbing for Shin, because Funimation really puts in top notch work on dubs. I would love to see them pull from both Funimation's deep roster of quality voice actors, like Vic Mignogna or Johnny Yong Bosch, as well as classic Godzilla voice actors, like Rik Thomas or even the great Peter Cullen. There are a lot of options, and while I don't expect to get everyone or even anyone who I just mentioned (though Rik Thomas would be amazing, he is my favorite Godzilla dub voice actor) I just want a real quality dub. Feel free to throw out some names you would like to see do a dubbing.
Additionally, I would love very much love to see some subtitled special features from the Japanese release. Even 50% of what was featured on the Japanese release would be amazing. I really am intrigued by the special features, which seem to really be quite extensive, but unfortunately my Japanese is still quite lacking, so I miss most of what is being said, which is a shame. I know this is a big hope for many of you guys. Are there any particular features you would like to see subbed?
I have mentioned this in the comments before, but I would love to see a Collector's Edition in the vein of the Tokyo Ghoul Season One release that Funimation did. It was elaborate, immaculate, and just a really cool collector's item, and I love Godzilla way more than Tokyo Ghoul, so I would be stunned with a release of that nature. I would also like to see some sort of limited edition figure, like the one featured in the Japanese release of Godzilla (2014). Honestly, some combo of the two aforementioned collector's editions would be phenomenal.
Beyond that, the actual disc packaging could be in line with other Funimation releases, and I would be okay with that. They usually do a pretty nice job on that as well. I would like it if it was more minimalist, like the Japanese release, or like Funimation's release of Evangelion: 3.33 [You Can (Not) Redo]
I'm not an adopter of 4K, so I can't say I would care if they did a 4K Bluray edition, but I know many of you are, and it would be nice to avoid a later release and have to double dip on that.
Please sound off and let me know what you guys feel about the imminent Shin Godzilla release from Funimation!
After getting that Slurpee at 7/11
I honestly stopped paying attention to the thread I made. Is that bad? Anyways, I just want HD, deleted scenes, subtitles, a decent dub, and that Godzilla vs Evangelion poster.
^This one here. That's all I want.
