posted on 2012-12-29 22:35 EST by Lynzee Loveridge
Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign could download an audition clip for characters Maskman M, Lady S, The Sister, The Parrot, or The Boss and dub it over for a chance to win a spot on the secondary dub audio track.
The announced winners are:
Natalie Hoover as Lady S
Joanna Thornton as The Sister
Patrick M Seymour as The Parrot
Edwyn Tiong as The Boss
Other finalists David S. Hsu, Frank Howley, and Justin Mattingly will also be recording additional roles in the film. Winners of the auditions will record the backer dub track with producer Richard Epcar, who is also voicing the professional dub track, and meet director Masaaki Yuasa.
The program's page describes the story:
Kick-Heart is a love story between Romeo, a successful pro-wrestler, and Juliet, a nun who lives a secret double-life as a female pro-wrestler. Romeo's secret is that he enjoys taking a beating in the ring, while Juliet feels invigorated when facing her opponents as a wrestler. When the two meet in the ring, the fireworks fly. Their story is set in the colorful backdrop of the professional wrestling world. Will Juliet reveal her true identity to the one she loves? Will Romeo be able to share his secret to the world?
Tatsuhisa Suzuki and Takako Honda will lead the Japanese voice cast. Kick-Heart reached its main Kickstarter fundraiser goal in October, and subsequent "stretch goals" have extended the anime from 10 to 12 minutes.
Winners name corrected, thanks Sakuya
