Would they though? I don't know why Ocean would feel the need to be silent about this. They'd be crazy to not want this dub to be released, they may not be the licence holder but for their name the more anime recorded in their studio the better. Since Kai is part of the Dragon Ball franchise it should open the door for Vancouver to continue dubbing anime. We've seen incredible stuff from them before like Death Note and Black Lagoon, the potential is there to keep going strong, they just need a push from a global phenomenon to pick up after a sluggish few years. If this dub stays locked in a vault license holders will just see this as a reason to avoid Ocean or Canadian dubbing companies in general, and for the sake of variety in the industry that must be prevented, if at all posdible.NitroEX wrote:Ocean Studios probably have all the answers but something tells me they will remain silent on the matter even in special circumstances such as this. Hopefully she's at least tried contacting them though, that could end up alerting the rights holder that there's interest if Ocean decides to do something
I think Marni's best chance, rather than relying on inactive Twitter or Facebook accounts would be to call Ocean directly. Their phone number is out there (in my link below), presumably they will be able to pass her message on to the rights holder:
Otherwise, it wouldn't hurt to keep contacting the actors, Keenlyside, etc and ask if they can pass the message on to their agents or anyone they know personally that has contacts with the source. The more we spread the word the better, so I say we push on, reach out to as many people as possible who may be able to help.
