‘A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-‘ Dub is So Bad It’s Getting Updated

Netflix has been aggressive in pursuing anime, which has led it to pick up big name titles like Violet Evergarden and Fate/Apocrypha.

A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-

However, anime fans voice their frustrations with Netflix’s licensing since all of their titles are offered in a binge-format at least six months after the Japanese airing. Netflix has never offered a logistical reason behind this, one common theory is that all of their exclusives must be dubbed and subbed in various languages.

Netflix seems to have faith in their dubs quality since it’s the default playback option when watching a new show — which was a mistake for A.I.C.O. -Incarnation.

Studio Bones’ latest series received a big push from Netflix a few months ago, hinting that they believed it would have been a hit. A sci-fi series featuring action and body horror from a premiere studio? What could go wrong?

The show received lukewarm reviews, but its English dub was trashed. Seriously, not even 1980s dubs were as cringe as A.I.C.O.

Tired of the mocking, Netflix decided to quietly redub A.I.C.O. with an all-new cast. Iyuno Media Group’s lackluster effort has been replaced with Bang Zoom! Entertainment’s competent job.

Will this improved dub lead to renewed interest in A.I.C.O. or are you surprised it took Netflix so long to push out a new version?
