A Very BLOOD-C Halloween – English Cast Announcement!

Halloween is almost upon us. Who better to celebrate Halloween with than the cast of BLOOD-C, the latest entry in the Blood: The Last Vampire franchise featuring stunning animation by Production I.G and hauntingly beautiful art and story from CLAMP?

Starting today and ending Halloween night, we’ll be sharing information about the characters of BLOOD-C, including the English voice cast members! Let’s get started:

Saya Kisaragi
Voiced by Alexis Tipton
(Rosario+Vampire’s Moka; My Bride is a Mermaid’s Sun)

By day, Saya is sweet, kind, and helpful, always late to school because she had to tend to a lost child or pick up litter. By night the schoolgirl turns huntress, tracking down and destroying monsters that threaten her friends and family.

But it may turn out that Saya herself is the ultimate prey…

And let’s not forget the ADR Director for the series, Jerry Jewell! See below for a full cast list as well as your first look at the English dub trailer.

Tadayoshi Kisaragi
Voiced by Bill Jenkins
(One Piece’s Narrator, Shangri-La’s Sergei)

Gruff and quiet, Tadayoshi Kisaragi nonetheless loves his sweet daughter Saya… even when he’s sending her off to do battle with murderous monsters. Is there more to the story of Saya’s secret assignment than he lets on?

Fumito Nanahara
Voiced by Rob McCollum
(Sengoku Basara’s Date Masamune; Fairy Tail’s Jellal)

Fumito is the kindly owner of a coffee shop on Saya’s way to school, and a good friend of Saya’s father. Saya seems to have a special relationship with Fumito, who is eager to help the Kisaragi family however he can.

Nene and Nono Motoe
Voiced by Lindsay Seidel
(Steins;Gate’s Ruka; Cat Planet Cuties’ Ichika)

The perkiest of Saya’s classmates, Nene and Nono are always up for a good time, and they love to tease their friends…especially the always-oblivious Saya. They’re completely dedicated to one another, for now. Sisterly love may turn sinister…

Shinichiro Tokizane
Voiced by Scott Freeman
(Baka and Test’s Yuuji; Hetalia’s England)

Tokizane is the bad boy of the school, isolating himself from his classmates and avoiding making friends. He has a soft spot for Saya, and the ladies love him cause he’s easy on the eyes. But will his looks save him when the Elder Bairns arrive?

series synopsis:
The creators of Blood – the Last Vampire and Blood+ team up with renowned powerhouse CLAMP to inject beauty into a chilling new addition to the Blood line. Horrifying beasts with a hunger for human flesh prey on the citizens of a quiet town. In moonlit twilight, Saya slays the monsters and returns home drenched in blood. As the attacks increase in frequency and intensity, her enemies relay cryptic messages about a broken contract. Limbs are torn from flesh and skulls are crushed and devoured while the huntress struggles with paralyzing visions and gaping holes in her memory. When the humans Saya promised to protect reveal the sickening truth about her role in the violence, she learns her mission isn’t as clear cut as she thought-and her most sadistic foe of all is so close she can taste it.

Bo is a gorgeous renegade. An irresistible beauty. And a deadly succubus. For years, she had no idea what she was or why every new lover died in the throes of passion. She fled one corpse after another until a chance encounter with the puckish thief Kenzi exposed Bo s existence to the Fae. This ancient society of supernatural beings exists outside the realm of mere mortals. Within their world, there are only two sides: Light and Dark. Each member of the Fae must choose who they will serve. But not Bo. Driven to discover who she really is, Bo vows to live on her own terms even if it means existing in the abyss between darkness and light. With the help of the mischievous, but loyal, Kenzi, the handsome shapeshifter Dyson, and the beautiful human scientist Lauren, Bo will use her powers of seduction to unravel the riddle of her mysterious past.

His second life is the only life he has – until the girl of his dreams, Natsuki, hijacks him for a starring role as a fake fiancée at her family reunion. Things only get stranger from there. A late-night email containing a cryptic mathematic riddle leads to the unleashing of a rogue AI intent on using the virtual word of OZ to destroy the real world, literally.

It seems Gasback has a serious beef with the town’s mayor, who’s paying dozens of bounty hunters to protect his turf. One of those hired guns is a beautiful woman with a vendetta against Gasback. Will she get a shot at revenge? Maybe, if she can get through Gasback’s bodyguard, Wolfwood. And what’s Vash got to do with this mess?

Living a life of loneliness and questioning his existence, Shinji struggles to accept responsibility for mankind’s battle for survival in this visually striking rebuild of one of the most important anime of all time. Shinji will fight the Angels alongside the only person who might understand his plight – Rei Ayanami, the elusive and frail pilot of Eva Unit 00.
