Uchida plays Lady Vanderbilt in series with Funimation broadcast dub

The official website for the television anime of Kazuma Kamachi's (A Certain Magical Index) Heavy Object light novel series announced on Friday that Maaya Uchida has joined the anime's cast as Lady Vanderbilt.

Lady Vanderbilt is the only daughter of the Vanderbilt family, which is at odds with the Winchell family. She and Havia got engaged against the wishes of both their families. As Havia works hard to take over as head of the family, he also works to overcome his family's "trivial quarrels" and marry Lady Vanderbilt.

The anime premiered in Japan on October 3, and Funimation is streaming the series as it airs in Japan. Funimation's broadcast dub of the series premiered on November 13.

Funimation describes the story:

In the future, warfare has been revolutionized by the invention of mechanical weapons called “Objects.” These Objects are overwhelmingly powerful, rendering traditional weapons like guns, tanks and fighter jets completely useless. Qwenthur is an un-athletic, but smart soldier who aims to work as an Object mechanic. Stationed at an Alaskan Object base, he meets Milinda, a stoic but beautiful Elite Soldier who pilots her own Object. As they learn to support each other in battle, Qwenthur begins to uncover the grim secret behind the Heavy Objects.

Takashi Watanabe (Shakugan no Shana, Freezing) is directing the anime at J.C.Staff (Toradora!, Kaichou wa Maid-sama!). Kazuma Kamachi (Toaru Majutsu no Index, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) wrote the original story.
