Sentai Filmworks to Dub Chaika - The Coffin Princess Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
Sentai Filmworks announced at its Saturday panel at the San Japan convention that it will dub the Chaika - The Coffin Princess television anime into English. The company did not reveal any of the cast yet, and it told ANN that it will provide more details later.
Chaika - The Coffin Princess centers around Toru Acura, a 20-year-old retired soldier meandering through life now that the war has ended. He encounters Chaika Trabant, a 14-year-old sorceress carrying a coffin and follows her in hopes of finding meaning to his life again. The two travel with Toru's adopted sister, Akari, the employed member of the group and thus Toru's source of income.
The first season based on Ichiro Sakaki's light novel series premiered in April 2014, and the second season premiered in October. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks announced at Anime Expo last summer that it will release the anime in North America. Yen will publish the second volume of Shinta Sakayama's manga adaptation in September.
