Initially, Funi listed Caitlin Glass as directing the "Goblin Slayer" dub but removed those listings. I found that removal happened after she tweeted that Tabitha Ray is directing the simuldub. Why Jeanne in "Ulysses" doesn't have her Eng. dub VA listed yet doesn't make sense.

Hooray for ZLS! So Brina will be delivering those rhymes to us, huh? Not a bad choice. Rest of the cast looks pretty solid as well.

Brina Palencia is kind of a safe choice when you think about it; who better to play the girl who does most of the singing than one of FUNimation's music directors? Still, I'm really looking forward to her performance and I appreciate that the casting director cast mostly actors that can sing or at least have sung in anime before. Ricco Fajardo was one of my picks for Kotaro as well, but who I really wanted to play Kotaro is... Johnny Yong Bosch. Since he was in Free: Dive to the Future last season (as a reprisal, sure, but still), it wouldn't have been too far fetched to cast him as the Mamoru Miyano character, I thought. Razz

I was hoping Amanda Lee and Brina would be in this, but I predicted their roles to be different (Brina as Yugiri and Amanda as Saki).

I was super wrong about the GS cast though. Hopefully this isn't a case where they threw lesser known names because they think the show won't be good. Though more Brittany Lauda and Sara Ragsdale is always a good thing, though Mallorie Rodak is an odd choice for High Elf Archer but I'm sure she'll be fine. Can't wait to listen.

Wait, the guy who voiced Tyyki is the voice of Gobinslayer? Now I have to watch this.

Ricco's a fun choice for Kotaro. If he acts like his character in Nanbaka that will be hilarious

No confirmation on who will be voicing Lizard Priest? Darn.

Sweet! A new talent among them. Can't wait to hear what Hayden Daviau is like.

Kira Buckland doesn't need one; she's been in Funimation dubs before and has used her normal name.

Okay, so she just sounds a lot like her. Thanks for the clarification!

Yeag, true, true. I could have also easily seen Alexis Tipton as Sakura though, but Brina's pretty solid. Now we wait!

Brina has a beautiful singing voice. Also, it's not that common to appear in an anime that is a mixture of a zombie apocalypse, idol girls, and a harem. I think it would be nice if Funi does some behind-the-scenes stuff regarding the music and show it on Twitter or FunimationNow.
