The Girl From the Other Side Anime Gets English Dub
posted on by Alex Mateo
Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will begin streaming an English dub for the feature-length anime adaptation of Nagabe's The Girl from the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún manga. The company will premiere the three English-dubbed episodes on Thursday.
The English cast includes:
- Sarah Wiedenheft as Shiva
- Gary Furlong as Teacher
- Ian Sinclair as Outsider
- Jason Liebrecht as Soldier
- Jerry Jewell as Hunter
The anime stars Jun Fukuyama as Teacher and Rie Takahashi as Shiva. Yūtarō Kubo and Satomi Maiya returned from the previous anime to direct, write the script, and design the characters, respectively. Schroeder-Headz again composed the music, and Shōji Hata returned as sound director.
Wit Studio's Kickstarter campaign for the OAD achieved its 3-million-yen (about US$28,000) goal on the same day it launched in March 2021, eventually raising 22,670,343 yen (about US$199,000) for a final stretch goal for an additional bonus short anime.
Wit Studio previously produced a 10-minute anime adaptation of the manga that premiered at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal in August 2019. The anime has a DVD that was bundled with the limited edition of the manga's eighth compiled book volume in September 2019.
In a world split between the Inside and the Outside, those living in both realms are told never to cross over to the other side, lest they be cursed. A young girl named Shiva lives on the other side, in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” Although the two are forbidden to touch, they seem to share a bond that transcends their disparate appearances. But when Shiva leaves Teacher's care to seek out her grandmother, the secret behind her mysterious living arrangement comes to light.
