A lot more information will be coming soon with the cast and production side, but right now FUNimation has revealed the six series that will be a part of its Broadcast Dub initiative from the fall season. There’s a pretty good mix of titles involved here so that it’s not leaning too heavily in any one direction. It’s no surprise to see Attack on Titan: Junior High get the nod nor the second half of Seraph of the End; and with the first season of Noragami already dubbed and released, the cast is largely set and already comfortable with their roles to go into a second season.
It’s definitely good to see a show like Dance with Devils get a chance to shine and draw in the audience with a male-heavy series, and fans of fanservice and silliness are well served by Shomin Sample. Add Heavy Object to the list to try and draw more serious SF material to the table and you’ve got a good selection overall.

Turns out Kimito has been chosen as a “commoner sample” to better help the isolated and naïve girls cope with entering into normal society.
