    Let's say Gintama is going to be licensed in the near future, who do you want to voice whom? Here's a list I thought about:

    Gintoki - Crispin Freeman (Steven Blum 2nd choice)
    Shinpachi - Yuri Lowenthal
    Takasugi - Liam O'brien
    Kagura - Kari Whalgren (Stephenie Sheh 2nd choice)
    Katsura - Derek Stephen Price (Yuri Lowenthal 2nd choice)
    Hijikata - Steven Blum
    Sougo - Johnny Yong Bosch (I don't like him that much, but he can be a good Sougo)
    Otae - Kate Higgins
    Kondou - Dave Wittenburg
    Hasegawa - Kyle Hebert
    Sakamoto - Vic Mingnona

    well those are the ones I was thinking about. if you have any suggestions, please, don't be afraid to add!

    Gintoki-Steve Blum(Because Steve Blum is awesome)
    Shinpachi-Derek Stephan Price(Because i find his voice funny and he always voices guys who wear glasses)
    Kagura-Kari Whelgren(Because she does a lot of cute voices and Kagura is cute X3)
    Katsura-Johnny Yong Bosch(Because his Ichigo voice is good and he was the Black Power Ranger which would be perfect for Curry Ninja XD)
    Sa chan-Stephenie Sheh(Because her voice is also cute X3)
    Sougo-Yuri Lowenthal(I don't know why i chose him but his also cool)

    oh yeah, Sa Chan is totally Stephenie Sheh. I chose Kari Wahlgren because she is extremely funny as well, like in FLCL.

    Steve Blum is cool. though i really love gintoki's voice at the moment... Its soo cool, and u know his voice straight away, his voice is best for gintoki, there is no one else who can do that.

    Well he proved her can be either serious (Spike) or funny (Jamie from MEGAS XLR) so he can be a great Gintoki, but his voice may be too low that's why he isn't my first option.

    This anime series has to be english dubbed if I ever wish to see it, since I have a policy of not watching anime subbed or RAW and ONLY watching english dubs.

    1. I don't know Japanese, and I'm not interested in ever learning it.
    2. I hate reading subtitles, they distract me easily.
    3. I only watch stuff in my language voice/audio wise, which happens to be English.

    I think that wraps up my reasons.

    Well, hopefully it will, since it would be odd for the manga to be translated but not the anime.

    DO NOT WANT :sun

    I mean, Crispin Freeman and Steven Blum ftw, but I dunno...I just can't see Gintama dubbed. Maybe if they do a good job in English as they did in Italian (and hopefully they'll do just as well in Spanish), then yes. Otherwise, no :pek

    And Stephanie Sheh is a joke. Her voice is way too high and annoying (she ruined Winry for me) :pek

    Lazy people, go read subs, it's good for your attention span :edu

    How could Stephanie Sheh ruin Winry? She didn't even voice Winry. Winry was voiced by Caitlin Glass.

    It drives me nuts when people demand it not be dubbed. Why? No one's making you watch it dubbed, so why does it bother you? Personally, I've held off watching the anime and stuck to Viz's manga volumes. I prefer watching the legit DVDs over fansubs, so this is high on my "dream license" list. To see people wishing against it really pisses me off.

    Also, I hope Funimation gets it, and not Viz. Viz can't be trusted with long-running series' licenses unless they're uber-popular series, so I'd rather Funi get them. I'd say the same for Soul Eater, but I think that's short enough that Viz wouldn't screw it up.

    It will hard for it to be dubbed because most of the jokes only works in Japanese, how was that dealt with in the translated manga?

    The manga made sense to me when I read it, and I am currently waiting for a chance to read volume 9.

    I unfortunately can not answer your question, since I have never read the manga scans, or the original manga in Japanese.

    At the beggining of the English manga, they used Zura as Casserole, because apparently it rhymes with Katsura (It's not Casserole, it's Katsura!). Then they changed it back to Zura. I like the VIZ translation of the manga, since it keeps a lot of the elements from the original Japanese.

    I'm not sure it will work just as well if the anime is dubbed, though. There are many, many plays on words, parodies of japanese TV shows and celebrities, as well as some very obscure anime references...

    That will be a difficult hurdle to overcome, but hopefully the english dub company that will license and dub this will find a way around it.
