Justin Cook, director of production at Funimation, noted that Josh Grelle and Kelly Angel have replaced Scott Freeman and Teri Rogers in the cast: "We have always tried incredibly hard to retain the original voice cast for our dubbed releases. However, there are instances where 'life just gets in the way,' and this is one of those unfortunate situations. With that being said, we are proud to bring the talents of both Josh and Kelly into the cast, and though they have big shoes or bras, as the case may be, to fill, I believe our work this season will be the best ever, despite the changes and challenges."
Funimation is already streaming the anime season with English subtitles as it airs in Japan. Funimation describes the story:
The babes and boys of the Occult Research Club are Back! Lovable loser (and bust buff) Issei and his clan of bewitching beauties return for a new season of supernatural tussles and sexy shenanigans—featuring old friends and new enemies! Now that all the girls live in Issei's home, life seems like nothing but fun and scantily-clad lounging…for now! Join Rias, Akeno, Koneko, Asia, Xenovia, Gasper, and everyone's favorite Harem King Issei as they fight, fumble, and fondle their way through their demonic high school lives.
