Kent Williams, Caitlin Glass star in historical fantasy anime

Funimation Entertainment announced the English voice cast for the Nobunagun anime at Ohayocon on Saturday. The company streamed a dubbed preview trailer for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack release originally slated for May 5, but now listed as coming soon.

The cast, under ADR director Christopher Bevins and ADR engineer Kenneth Thompson, includes:

  • Jad Saxton as Sio
  • Kent Williams as Nobunaga
  • Jason Liebrecht as Jack
  • Christopher Bevins as Gandhi
  • Caitlin Glass as Newton

The anime centers on Ogura Sio, whose world "changes forever when her school trip to Taiwan is interrupted by a surprise monster attack! Her life is miraculously spared by the arrival of a clandestine government agency that battles the army of monsters with weapons possessed by the spirits of historical figures. Only a select few, the E-Gene Holders, are capable of harnessing the power of this supernatural weaponry, and Sio's valiant attempt to rescue a friend reveals her as one of the chosen few destined to play a vital role in the war to save humanity!"

Nobuhiro Kondo (Sgt. Frog, SD Gundam Force) directed the series at the studio Bridge (Devil Survivor 2 The Animation). Takeshi Furuta (Devil Survivor 2 The Animation, Love Live! episode director) served as assistant director, and Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Comic Party, Rosario + Vampire, To Heart) was in charge of series scripts.

The English dub premiered at Ohayocon during this weekend.
