For the last few years, watching simulcast episodes from Japan hasn’t just been experiencing the latest episodes in Japanese w/ English subtitles – with an English dub to be commissioned down the line. A number of US-based publishers have moved forward with offering simuldubbed episodes, episodes which are dubbed into English mere weeks after first airing in Japan. CrunchyRoll, the long-running official anime streaming service, is one such publisher.
In the midst of the Fall 2020 anime season now, CrunchyRoll has confirmed four seasons which will be receiving simuldubs, and confirmed whom will be voicing each show’s lead characters. A full list can be found below:
