Funimation Entertainment announced the English voice cast for Laughing Under the Clouds on Monday. The company streamed the first English-dubbed episode for subscribers on November 1 and asked viewers to guess the voices.
The cast, under ADR director Joel McDonald and ADR engineer Peter Hawkinson, includes:

Laughing Under the Clouds is the first in Funimation's line of Broadcast Dubs, which will stream shortly after the Japanese version airs in Japan. The show premiered in Japanese with subtitles on Funimation's website on October 6.
The story is a fantasy adventure tale set in the Meiji era that revolves around three mischievous brothers, appointed the unsavory task of transporting Japan's most dangerous criminals to an inescapable prison surrounded by water – a task, as they soon find out, may be easier said than done.
Hiroshi Haraguchi (Eureka Seven - good night, sleep tight, young lovers) is directing the series at Dogakobo (Engaged to the Unidentified, Yuruyuri), and Yuuya Takahashi (Tiger & Bunny) is in charge the scripts. Takao Maki (Mobile Suit Gundam AGE character animation director) is designing the characters.
