So FUNimation had a little fun with this latest English dub announcement. Way back when on November 1st (otherwise known as 3 days ago), the official site aired the first episode of Laughing Under the Clouds for sponsors. During this, FUNimation asked viewers to play a little game and see if they could guess the cast themselves. Now, since it’s quite difficult to guess voices via text, enjoy the official list:

  • Tenka: Christopher Wehkamp
  • Soramaru: Dave Trosko
  • Chutaro: Terri Doty
  • Shirasu: Robert McCollum
  • Kitamura: Randy Pearlman
  • Tsuchiya: Jarrod Greene

In 1878, the Meiji Restoration occurred. Because of this, the country faced many criminals, such as samurai’s rebelling against their fallen positions. Many were arrested, but they soon broke out of their jail cells and rampaged across Japan. Therefore, the government did their best to prevent this by building a giant prison in the middle of Lake Biwa. However, to get these criminals to the prison, they needed a form of transport. In this way, the Kumō brothers were given the responsibility to take these criminals to their final resting place.

Directed by Joel McDonald, with Peter Hawkinson as Engineer, Laughing Under the Clouds will be the first of FUNimation’s Broadcast Dubs. Series that are given this designation will air in Enlish shortly after their Japanese release, which in all honesty is awesome. It’s a sign of the times English speaking anime fans, our wait just got shorter. Granted this takes off of course…

  1. Great! Definitely going to buy this series when it comes out. I looooove mainstream anime but it gets old fast, and I need a nice, fresh anime that made me remember why I love it in the first place: a great story, cast of characters, and attachment to the show. I hope this is successful too. Also, I really hope we get to see Yona of the Dawn and the second season of Kamisama Kiss kick off soon.
