Bushiroad resumes production on Future Card Buddyfight’s English dub

buddyfightseason4dub2017

Alongside the announcement that the show’s fourth season is due out in April, Japanese card game/wrestling promoter (they exploit the weirdness of that combination) Bushiroad has confirmed they’ll return to dubbing the Future Card Buddyfight anime series in English. While the crossmedia project debuted simulatneously in English and Japanese on streaming platforms in 2014, with an English dub by Ocean Media’s Calgary and Edmonton affiliate Blue Water, the company ceased production on the dubbed version halfway through the second season, Buddyfight Hundred, in October 2015. From that point onwards Bushiroad shifted English promotion to a subtitled simulcast of the Japanese version. Continue reading

CRTC approves Gintama, World Trigger, more as Canadian content; DHX set to co-produce new Mega Man cartoon

Long time readers of the blog should be aware of the concept of Cancon quotas – a mandate by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that requires all Canadian television broadcasters to devote a certain percentage of their schedule to locally produced content. It’s a protectionist measure meant to encourage industry and prevent Canada from just being the US, but colder. The quotas have almost certainly benefited the Canadian anime fandom, as simply recording a show’s audio track in Canada qualifies the production as partial Cancon. This gives anime a leg up on other foreign shows. Due to a number of factors, Canadian anime dubs are far less common than they once were. But things might be starting to look up.

To keep broadcasters honest, the CRTC requires programs wishing to count as Canadian content to be sent for approval. As a result of that, the CRTC keeps a publicly accessible database of content that is certified Canadian. This year has seen some interesting anime additions that haven’t aired on Canadian TV.

Future Card Buddyfight Premieres On Teletoon Next Week

buddyfightkeyart Almost a year ago I wrote about Future Card Buddyfight. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t expecting to ever write about it again. Japanese TCG manufacturer Bushiroad launched the cross-media property globally last year, with the tie-in anime running premieres through Youtube and other VOD venues. If that strategy wasn’t weird enough for a kids merchandise property, Bushiroad has been providing an English dub produced by Calgary’s Bluewater Studios hours after the Japanese premiere. Now the series is heading to Teletoon, according to Zap2it and the channel’s own schedule. Things are set to kick off on Thursday, January 8th at 7AM. It looks like Teletoon will become Buddyfight‘s first broadcast partner outside of Asia. Continue reading
