Ninja Slayer Key Visual 002 - 20150304This may be my only chance to say this, so here goes!


Earlier today, FUNimation announced the dub cast for Ninja Slayer From Animation. The dub was previewed at Anime Central and Otafest last weekend, and is slated for a Thursday première as part of the company’s Broadcast Dubs program.

Absent from the list are female leads Nancy Lee, Yamamoto, and Yukano.

The dub will be directed by Tyler Walker, with Patrick Morphy & Kyle Phillips serving as ADR engineers.

FUNimation describes the series as follows:

From Kill la Kill’s radical Studio Trigger comes a badass and outrageous ninja anime that kicks reason to the curb with a screaming “WASSHOI!”

Ninjas. Karate. Sushi. The dystopian cyber underworld of Neo-Saitama is ruled from the shadows by an intricate web of drugs, yakuza gangs, and evil syndicate ninjas wielding fearsome “karate.” In a sea of the blood of his enemies, a lone maverick stands. NINJA SLAYER is a ninja who kills other ninjas in the name of ninja vengeance. A former salaryman whose family was killed by evil ninjas, Ninja Slayer cheats death and casts away his past to embrace the dark, mystical NINJA SOUL, a mysterious spirit that grants him great power in his quest for revenge. But will this bloodthirsty spirit consume Ninja Slayer before his enemies are all “dead on departure?” Domo. I’m Ninja Slayer.

Ninja Slayer will begin its dubbed run on May 21, at 9:00AM Central (10:00AM Eastern). To promote the release, FUNimation began streaming an 80-second teaser on its YouTube channel.
