Madoka Magica’s getting a dub

What, really? Yup, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is getting a dub conducted by Aniplex USA. Given that they’ve dubbed Durarara, which turned out to be pretty damn good, I can see this dub working, given they have the right voice actresses. Maybe Michell Ruff? Or Kari Wahlgren? Who knows who they will choose? I’m mainly concerned about who will voice QB. Certainly not a deep male voice as that would sound insanely awkward. I’m also concerned how well it would do in the Western States. The last couple of mahou shoujo shows I can recall doing so well last time it aired in the West were…. CardCaptors Sakura and Sailor Moon and they were well over ten years ago. As for Madoka, it seems very uncertain. Maybe the take of a new direction on the Mahou Shoujo genre will do better with the western audiences than expected, maybe not.
