North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday the English dub cast for its upcoming release of the Mysterious Girlfriend X television anime series. Sentai Filmworks and Section23 Films will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on June 11.
The cast is as follows:
Genevieve Simmons as Mikoto Urabe
Josh Grelle as Akira Tsubaki
Greg Ayres as Kohei Ueno
Carli Mosier as Yoko Tsubaki
The following people will provide additional voices: Hayley Adams, Christopher Ayres, Clint Bickham, Kalin Coates, Tiffany Grant, Jason Grundy, Houston Hayes, Connor Leach, Margaret McDonald, Jeremy Merritt, Carli Mosier, Chris Patton, Tiffany Terrell, and David Wald. Christopher Ayres is directing the dub.
The series adapts Riichi Ueshiba's romantic comedy manga of the same name. The "unidentifiable love" story revolves around Akira Tsubaki, who one day notices the anti-social transfer student Mikoto Urabe drooling on her desk while she is sleeping, and he tastes it. Eventually the two begin to date and get to know each other better.
Ayumu Watanabe (Doraemon: Nobita no Kyoryu , Doraemon: Nobita to Midori no Kyojin Den) directed the adaptation at the anime studio Hoods Entertainment. Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Asura Cryin') supervised the series scripts, and Kenichi Konishi (Bokurano, Tokyo Godfathers) designed the characters.
Shizue Kaneko (Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Uchū Kaitakushi, Doraemon: Nobita to Midori no Kyojin Den) served as chief animation director with Emmy-nominated art director Shigemi Ikeda (Afro Samurai: Resurrection, Bokurano, several Gundam projects). Masafumi Mima (Macross Frontier, Paprika) directed the sound.
The 13-episode series premiered in Japan last April, and Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of Japan as it aired.
