North American anime distributor Funimation announced the English broadcast dub cast for the Shōnen Maid anime on Friday. The first dubbed episode premiered on Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The cast, under ADR director Caitlin Glass and ADR engineer Domonique French, includes:

  • Apphia Yu as Chihiro
  • Seth Magill as Madoka
  • Todd Haberkorn as Keiichiro
  • Michelle Rojas as Chiyo
  • Leah Clark as Miyako
  • Morgan Berry as Hino
  • Kristen McGuire as Amahara
  • Kate Oxley as Takei

Funimation describes the anime:

After the loss of his mother, Chihiro is left alone. With no known family left, he has to find a way to move on. Things aren't looking good until a chance encounter with the young and handsome Madoka—who turns out to be his wealthy uncle! Madoka offers him his home and all Chihiro has to do is clean up after the messy, irresponsible man. The problem? This job requires a uniform—a maid outfit!

The anime debuted on April 7, and Funimation is already streaming the English-subtitled version.

Yusuke Yamamoto (Welcome to the NHK, Sgt. Frog, Aquarion Evol) is directing the series at studio 8-Bit. Yoshiko Nakamura (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Super Lovers, Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga) is in charge of the series composition, and Kana Ishida (The irregular at magic high school, Aquarion Evol, Wakaba Girl) is adapting the character designs for animation. Tomohiro Yamada is composing the music.

Ototachibana's original Shōnen Maid manga inspired the anime adaptation. Ototachibana launched the series in Enterbrain's Comic B's-LOG magazine in the April 2008 issue, and Kadokawa published the ninth compiled volume this past April.
