That's what I am thinking, too. It will either be good or be horrible or even

Yep, I think so too or at least hope so. I like dubs if they are done right,
but I hope they release a subtitled version too, which probably they will,
since almost all anime is subbed, then released as dubbed. BTW, How is AV's
dubs? I haven't had the chance to purchase them yet, but will be able to
soon. I will probably get the subs, but am curious about the dubs.
