When companies reach out to new global audiences, it is essential they find a trusted localization provider who has not only language experience, but also cultural fluency and extensive production knowledge. That’s why The Olympic Channel turned to SPG Studios to dub their popular anime series “Heroes” from Japanese to North American English.
The original series takes viewers back in time to ancient Greece, following the adventures of a Japanese teenager Mao, who aspires to be a professional athlete. The Olympic Channel’s five-part series was produced in Japan as a Japanese-language series, but its goal from the outset was to appeal to global fans of anime. Given SPG’s track record with Japanese content, and anime in particular, they were a perfect fit for the project.
