North American anime and manga distributor Viz Media announced its English dub cast for the 2011-2014 Hunter x Hunter television anime series at its C2E2 panel on Saturday:
- Erica Mendez as Gon Freecss
- Cristina Vee as Killua Zoldyck
- Matthew Mercer as Leorio
- Keith Silverstein as Hisoka
Viz Media announced in October that it licensed the series. The company plans to release the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, and will dub the series into English.
The second television anime adaptation of Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter × Hunter manga premiered in Japan in 2011 and ran for 148 episodes. The final episode premiered in 2014.
Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The series retold the story of Togashi's original manga from the beginning. The story follows Gon Freecs as he strives to become a Hunter in order to find his father and to find the reason why his father abandoned him as a baby to become a Hunter.
Togashi launched the series in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1998, and Viz Media published the manga's 32nd volume in English in April 2014. The manga has been on hiatus since August 2014. The manga has also inspired an earlier TV series in 1999-2001, two anime films in 2013, and several OVAs. Viz Media also released the original anime series on DVD.
Update: Viz also announced that Erika Harlacher will play Kurapika. Thanks, Nebs and NJ_
