Aniplex USA Announces More of Magi Anime's Dub Cast

posted on by Egan Loo

Aniplex of America streamed a video on Sunday to announce more of the English dub cast for its release of Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic television anime series:

Aniplex already announced these cast members in September:

Shinobu Ohtaka's original manga re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights). Director Koji Masunari (Read or Die, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW) helmed the 25-episode first season at A-1 Pictures, and is returning to direct the second season. Toshifumi Akai (Kokoro Connect, Sound of the Sky) serves as the character designer and chief animation director, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Accel World, Guilty Crown, My-HiME) is handling the scripts. Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Evangelion, Berserk films) is composing the music.

Anime Weekend Atlanta hosted the dub premiere of the anime in September before Viz Media's Neon Alley service premiered the series in October. The anime itself premiered in Japan last year, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

The second season, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, premiered in Japan on October 6. Aniplex of America is streaming the season on Daisuki, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Aniplex Channel.
