Media Blasters began streaming a new dubbed clip from Ladies versus Butlers! on Monday featuring Carrie Savage as Selina Iori and Y.Chang as Shingo Todoroki.
The company previously announced that Brittany Lauda will play Plug Cryostat in the Juden Chan dub.
Media Blasters originally announced that it had licensed the Ladies versus Butlers! anime in July 2013, and originally planned to release it in January 2014. The 12-episode adaptation of Tsukasa Kouzuki's light novel series originally aired in 2010. The school romantic comedy revolves around Akiharu Hino, an ordinary high school student who unfortunately looks like a juvenile delinquent. He enrolls into an academy that was once a school for upper-class ladies, and he is placed in the school's newly established servant training department. The students there are raised to be either maids or butlers, and Akiharu finds himself in the middle of the bickering cliques.
Media Blasters originally announced that it had licensed the Juden Chan (Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!!) anime in January 2013. The 2009 anime adapts the Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!! science-fiction comedy manga from Bow Ditama, who previously drew the art for Bunjuro Nakayama's Mahoromatic manga and created the Kiss×sis manga. The story revolves around Plug, a mysterious woman who came to our world from a parallel world with the ability to "charge" up dejected people.
