Funimation Reveals English Cast of Hero Tales Anime

posted on by Gia Manry

Funimation announced the English-language voice cast for its upcoming release of Hero Tales. The cast list is as follows:

The 2007 anime (titled Jyūshin Enbu - Hero Tales in Japan) adapts the martial-arts adventure manga of the same name from Fullmetal Alchemist creator Hiromu Arakawa, scenario writer Ryou Yashiro, and story creator Huang Jin-Zhou. The Chinese-mythology-inspired story revolves around a boy named Taito, the prophesied seventh star of the Hokuto (the Big Dipper). Taito must journey with his sister Laila and friend Ryuko to recover a legendary sword.

The first half of the 26-episode anime will ship in North America on March 15, 2011, after being originally planned as a fall 2010 release. Yen Press acquired the license to Arakawa's original manga in 2008.
