posted on by Karen Ressler
Aniplex of America announced at its industry panel at Sakura-Con on Friday that it plans to dub Magi - The Kingdom of Magic, the second anime adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka's Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic manga series. Aniplex and dubbing studio Bang Zoom! Entertainment will hold open auditions for the dub at the Bang Zoom! booth at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California from July 3-6.
The companies also held open auditions last year for the first season of Magi. The audition drew 400 participants, three of whom were awarded parts in the anime's dub.
The second season premiered in Japan last October. Aniplex of America streamed the series on Daisuki, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Aniplex Channel.
Update: Bang Zoom! confirmed with ANN on Friday that participants in this year's open auditions will again not be able to reserve audition times in advance.
