ADR director and actress Caitlin Glass announced the English dub cast for AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue on Thursday. Funimation announced at New Jersey's Anime Next convention earlier this month that it planned to release the anime on Blu-ray Disc on September 11.

Glass is directing the dub with ADR engineer Manuel Aragon, mix engineer Andrew Tipps, and scriptwriter Niki Shults. The cast includes:

  • Jill Harris as Asuka
  • Adam Gibbs as Masaya
  • Anastasia Munoz as Misaki
  • Natalie Hoover as Mashiro
  • Christopher Wehkamp as Shion
  • Madeleine Morris as Madoka
  • Felecia Angelle as Minori
  • Rachel Robinson as Aoi
  • Shawn Gann as Kazunari
  • Cristina Vee as Rika
  • Tia Ballard as Reiko
  • Alexis Tipton as Irina
  • Amanda Lee as Saki
  • Oscar Contreras as Hayato
  • Mikaela Krantz as Minamo
  • Marissa Lenti as Botan
  • Alex Moore as Arika
  • Amber Lee Connors as Mayu

The anime premiered in January 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Crunchyroll describes the series:

The invention of Grav-Shoes, footwear that function as antigravity devices, drastically changes the world, as they give people the ability to freely soar the skies.

Asuka Kurashina transfers into Kunahama High school, where she meets Masaya Hinata and Misaki Tobisawa, finds out about the aerial sport that's rapidly gaining popularity—Flying Circus, or FC for short—and, fascinated by it, immediately joins the school's FC Club.

She and her teammates sometimes clash, but they also support one another in the pursuit of their respective goals as they take on formidable rivals and look to triumph in the summer FC tournament.

Gonzo animated the series based on sprite/fairys original game. Fumitoshi Oizaki (Romeo × Juliet, Etotama, Astarotte's Toy) directed the series, and Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman., K-ON!, Girls und Panzer) handled the series composition.
