Once known as the “Black Master Swordsman,” Kanata Age is now considered a traitor and is assigned to lead an F-class of mismatched mages. Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she’s failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she’s a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition but zero confidence. It’s up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.

UPDATE: Note from Justin Cook –

Hello Everyone in Anime Land!

 

I just wanted to swoop in and say that I’m super excited about all the talk and buzz going on about the broadcast dub for theDisappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. I can say that we’re very excited as well. When the word began to spread about the possibility of being able to dub this wonderful spin-off of the series, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, I knew that above all else we’d want to retain the original voice cast, as well as anyone else of the original production team that we could recruit. The trouble was I needed someone to help run the project, and I thought to myself “self, who is someone who can get things done? Who is someone that is just as obsessed with trying to ‘build the better dub’ we are here at FUNimation?” The answer came to me almost immediately… Christopher R. Sabat can help, Christopher R. Sabat can always help. And help he did. Not only did he manage to secure the entire (so far) original cast, but he also reached out to the talented Alex Von David. At the end of the day, we weren’t able to work out a schedule that worked for securing him for voice directing the entire series, but he’s agreed to help out as his schedule allows. So, now our man on the ground in LA is Todd Haberkorn, which we’re also very excited about! Anyway, I’m telling you all of this because usually when we make our cast announcements we attach a voice director, and since at the time of the cast announcement we were a little unsure about who was going to be the full time voice director, we went with Chris’ name as we knew he would be attached all the way to the 16th episode. To make this a very high maintenance announcement, the truth is that Todd Haberkorn is currently voice directing the series with Christopher R. Sabat producing, but to be fair, Todd may not be able to maintain the schedule and may have to duck out to let Alex or one of the other talented voice directors that Sabat has available to him. But what I can guarantee is that Chris, and the fine folks here at FUNimation, will be helping to keep things consistent and ensure that the dub sounds like one cohesive project, so that if Todd must jump out for a little bit, you, the fans, won’t know the difference. At least that’s our goal!

 

For the love of Anime and all her fans,
Justin

Announcing: High School DxD BorN Broadcast Dub Cast

Update: Thank you to everyone that has posted comments regarding the first episode of the broadcast dub of High School DxD BorN. We understand the reactions from long term fans to the change in voice actors — which is the very reason we announced the recasting before the new dub aired. For differing reasons, both Scott Freeman and Teri Rogers could not return to the show. FUNimation had no other choice but to bring on two new voice actors, Josh Grelle and Kelly Angel, to High School DxD BorN in order to produce the dub. No amount of time or delay would have changed this. We hope new and especially existing fans will give Josh an Kelly the opportunity to settle into the characters. They are very talented actors and will do the show proud. FUNimation is committed to bringing the best in anime to our subscribers and sometimes, in this case, changes are unavoidable.

 

FLOWER MOUND, TEXAS – May 2, 2015. FUNimation Entertainment announced today the cast for the Broadcast Dub of High School DxD BorN (Season 3).  Weekly, subtitled episodes of the simulcast began airing on FUNimation’s streaming service on April 4 with new episodes premiering each Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.  Now four episodes into Season 3, FUNimation will be commencing production on the dub versions of the High School DxD BorN simulcast.

 

The cast of High School DxD BorN includes the addition of Josh Grelle and Kelly Angel in the roles of Issei and Akeno, respectively. Grelle is a FUNimation veteran and fan favorite and is well known for his TV, movie and video game roles from Attack on Titan and Mass Effect to The Devil is a Part-Timer and Dragon Ball: Xenoverse.  The remaining cast from past seasons including Jamie Marchi, Sean O’Connor and Jād Saxton will be returning for this season’s simulcast.

 

“’We have always tried incredibly hard to retain the original voice cast for our dubbed releases.  However, there are instances where ‘life just gets in the way’, and this is one of those unfortunate situations,” said Justin Cook, director of production at FUNimation. “With that being said, we are proud to bring the talents of both Josh and Kelly into the cast, and though they have big shoes or bras, as the case may be, to fill, I believe our work this season will be the best ever, despite the changes and challenges.”
