KATEKYOUSHI HITMAN REBORN! MANGA DUB
Tsunayoshi Sawada is a 14 year old middle school student with a reputation of being ‘Loser Tsuna’. His grades are embarrassingly low, his athleticism is nonexistent, and his confidence is so low that he’s intimidated by a chihuahua. His ordinary life is suddenly upended when a baby named Reborn arrives claiming himself to be a hitman and his new home tutor. Tsuna is the chosen 10th boss of the largest mafia family in the world, the Vongola, and it’s Reborn’s job to a respectable and strong mafioso.
I've been wanting to do this project for a long time as Katekyoushi Hitman REBORN! is my all time favorite manga. However, while well known in Japan it doesn't seem to have much presence here in the west. Not many seem to know or at least have heard of it before. It had an anime that never got dubbed and while I'd like to dub it, it doesn't hold up due to animation and censorship and also ends before the last two arcs of the manga. For a while I've wanted KHR! to get more love, whether it be through a anime reboot similar to HunterxHunter or a continuation/sequel of the manga. Hopes were high when the author, Amano Akira's, most recent series elDLIVE was promoted with a video that included new animation for KHR! Unfortunately, since then there's been no more news about it. TL:DR I want give my favorite series the love I feel it deserves by producing an English dub of the manga!
The test scene above is a rough idea of my preferred presentation, though I'm completely open to suggestions and improvements to the format. I'm in need of a skilled editor to make this project a reality to work alongside my current editor. Someone who has experience with comic dub editing or has the skill set required to put one together. I.E. Matching lines to written dialogue and presenting the pages and panels in a visually appealing way. I'd provide the manga pages as needed as I'll be editing the dialogue to match my script. We also have a sound engineer who can handle sound effects and music if a potential editor is more comfortable with just visuals and line placement. I hope for this to be a long term project. Ideally, once production is underway and we've settled into a decent workflow, I’d like to be able release two chapters biweekly. Of course pre producing a number of chapters ahead of time would be the optimal way to accomplish this, along with one or two week breaks to ensure a consistent backlog. Chapter 1 has already been completed and released thanks to our current editor. Here is a link: KHR! MangaDUB Chapter 1 I encourage anyone who might be interested to express themselves as an editor so don't feel like either the test scene or Chapter 1 are a rigid mold but more a foundation. I'd love to see what unique strength a 2nd editor would bring to this project.
If interested, please provide a sample of your work and feel free to ask any questions you have about the position.
Thank you and here's hoping we can work together to create a wonderful product!
