FUNimation Announces DEATH PARADE Dub Cast

FUNimation Entertainment announced the English cast for its broadcast dub of the popular new anime Death Parade on February 17, 2015. The cast, directed by ADR director Zach Bolton and working from a script by Bonny Clinkenbeard, includes Alex Organ (Ghost in the Shell: Arise, One Piece) as Decim, Jamie Marchi (Assassination Classroom, Future Diary) as Woman, Eric Vale (Hetalia, Dragon Ball Z Kai) as Takashi and Trina Nishimura (Attack on Titan, Steins;Gate) as Machiko. The dub begins broadcast on FUNimation’s website on February 18th.

FUNimation described Death Parade, which began broadcast in Japan on January 9th, thusly: “There is a place after death that’s neither heaven nor hell. A bar that serves you one chance to win. You cannot leave until the game is over, and when it is, your life may be too. From Studio MADHOUSE (Death Note, Black Lagoon) comes a thrilling new series where the stakes are high and the rules are simple: your life is on the line.” The series is based on a 2013 short film, Death Billiards, written and directed by Yazaru Tachikawa, who serves the same roles on the series.

Death Parade (currently streaming on FUNimation and Hulu, along with other current series like Tokyo Ghoul √A, World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Kamisama Kiss 2, Yuri Kuma Arashi, Yona of the Dawn, and Maria the Virgin Witch, is part of Funimation’s ongoing Broadcast Dub initiative, which has the company quickly writing and dubbing English translations of current anime weeks after the initial Japanese broadcast. The company then produces a final English dub using the footage from the Japanese home video release, then releasing the final product on DVD and Blu-Ray. The initiative was launched last October and used for Laughing Under the Clouds and Psycho-Pass 2.
