A few more casts have been announced for the summer’s simuldub line up.
This time around, it’s video game adataptations that are the focus of this week’s releases. One is a show that I’ve been desperately waiting for the cast for and another is one that seems interesting though I honestly don’t know much about the game it’s adapted from.
Tales of Zesteria the X (Premires August 3 8:30pm)
There are a few names here that I’m excited to see, some of which are new to the scene at Funimation. The good thing about this is a lot of the original cast from the game has been brought back as well. It’s one of the things that Funimation works hard to do when they acquire an older title or a title that already has a preciously established cast, they usually try to get the original cast from the project. I can’t wait to see the work Funimation puts into this one.
Dangan Ronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Future and Despair Arc (Premires August 10 8:00pm and August 11 11:30 am)
I’m not even going to contain how excited for this dub I am! There’s so many original cast members that are being brought back as well as a ton of new actors joining the project from Funimation’s incredible pool of talent. The biggest thrill for me is the return of Bryce Papenbrook as both Makoto Naegi and Nagito Komaeda. These are my favorite roles he’s done and I can’t wait to see him in both roles again. There’s such a huge variety of characters with this show it allows for so many actors to come on board. This dub cannot premire fast enough for me.
Make sure to check out the shows already airing as part of Funimation’s simuldub line up and keep an eye out for all the new shows coming soon!
