A few days ago we reported that the voice actress Jessica Angeleswho has played Kaguya Shinomiya in the Latin Spanish dub of Kaguya-sama: Love is Warhad published a video on social networks informing that, although the film of Kaguya-sama: Love is War – The First Kiss That Never Ends is announced to be released with dubbing on February 10 in theaters in Mexico, the dubbing process had not begun with the original dubbing actors.
In said presentation, Jessica Angeles made a series of statements reporting that there had been a “not very informal rapprochement” where they offered him half a regular salary to dub the film in a period of about 19 days, a miniscule time considering thatin the words of the actress and dubbing director, the dubbing work of a film for cinema must be ready months before its premiere.
Shortly after his video statement that definitely shook the dubbing industry, Konnichiwa Festival!, the company in charge of the distribution, published a statement distancing itself from the situation and stating that “the dubbing work is the responsibility of the studio they hire for it.” Fortunately, It seems that the pressure of the fans was felt, since the actress and dubbing director published a new update indicating that an agreement was finally reached to start producing the project..
- (Omission) The Time is limited, so we know that we do not have the same time resources, but we are doing everything possible so that it does come out, that it has the best possible quality that we can deliver and that the project is given continuity. (…) Thank you very much for being attentive, for your support, and also for supporting the Festival. All I can do is tell you that we are obviously super committed, both the talent, the client, and the studio, to delivering the best possible product for you.
About Konnichiwa Festival!it turns out that they already modified their official site to list that the premiere of Kaguya-sama: Love is War – The First Kiss That Never Ends it will only be in subtitled format (ie, referring to the February 10 release date). This could mean many things, but the fans hope thatgiven that the dubbing is barely being carried out two weeks after the premiere, which the distributor intends to do a re-release in theaters if the dubbing work is not finished on time.
