Oh, well, that's the last one for now.

In other news, official Xros Wars English dub! :shock:

http://withthewill.net/index.php?topic=17232.0

What all we know thus far (as of this typing) is basically this:
  • It's being dubbed by Studiopolis
  • It's currently at the casting stage
  • Ben Diskin auditioned for a role in it (one of which was Shoutmon)
  • Despite it being an outdated practice for anime dubbing these days, some names are being Americanized :roll:
  • Taiki's name with be just slightly changed
  • Akari, Zenjirou, and Kiriha are also getting name changes
  • The term "DigiXros" may be left intact (Yay!)
  • Who bought the license is TBA
  • Jeff Nimoy is currently uninvolved

At last.

Fansubber PositronCannon has completed his subtitled releases of Digimon Frontier. And with that, every Digimon anime series finally has complete, up-to-date, English subtitled releases. All that remains now is for him to sub the Frontier movie and things will truly be complete. Yay! :grin: 8)

Word from the cast members confirms that the English dub name of Digimon Xros Wars will be "Digimon Fusion".

It's an okay name, I guess. Just so used to saying "Xros Wars". :P

Saban Brands Acquires Digimon Brand

MarVista Entertainment to Manage International Distribution Beyond Asia

LOS ANGELES, CA (Sept. 25, 2012) - Saban Brands has acquired the Digimon franchise, adding the long-running Japanese anime property to its growing portfolio of entertainment assets. The acquisition, which encompasses rights to the property outside of Asia, continues Saban Brands' dramatic growth since reacquiring the Power Rangers property and purchasing lifestyle brand Paul Frank in 2010, amongst others. Saban Brands will work with MarVista Entertainment for distribution of the series outside of Asia. Japanese animation studio, Toei Animation Co., Ltd. will handle licensing and distribution of the property in Asia.

The Digimon franchise, which was first brought to the U.S. in 1999 by Saban's Fox Family Worldwide, explores a digital world where powerful creatures known as Digimon, or digital monsters, battle for supremacy. With the help of their young human partners, the Digimon defend their world and ours from various evil forces.

"We're thrilled to reconnect Saban Brands with Digimon, an entertainment franchise that embodies the strong fan base and growth potential we look for in new additions to our portfolio," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. "We look forward to reintroducing the brand in new and exciting ways that will allow more fans to engage with Digimon."

Saban Brands will debut the newest season, Digimon Fusion, at MIPCOM, which will be held Oct. 8-11 in Cannes, France. MarVista Entertainment has been appointed to handle international distribution (outside of Asia) of the new season, as well as distribution for more than 250 half-hours episodes of Digimon content from the library.

"We are naturally excited to further extend our relationship with Saban Brands to represent the Digimon franchise and to present the latest iteration, Digimon Fusion, to international buyers at MIPCOM," commented Fernando Szew, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of MarVista Entertainment. "Children worldwide have embraced the Digimon television series since its launch, providing strong ratings success for broadcasters around the globe, and we anticipate a lot of enthusiasm from current and new partners who will undoubtedly want to play a key role in the continued growth of the Digimon franchise."
