Wait… right cast, wrong series.

Earlier today, FUNimation announced the English dub cast for The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. The cast members announced today are all returning to reprise their roles from Bang Zoom!’s The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya dub.

The confirmed cast is as follows:

  • Nagato: Michelle Ruff
  • Kyon: Crispin Freeman
  • Asakura: Bridget Hoffman
  • Haruhi: Wendee Lee
  • Mikuru: Stephanie Sheh
  • Tsuruya: Kari Wahlgren

The dub will be directed by Christopher R. Sabat, with Bonny Clinkenbeard attached as lead writer. Studio Otakutron 5000 will be in charge of production.

FUNimation’s dub of The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan will make its début on Friday at 2:10PM Eastern, as part of the company’s Broadcast Dubs program.

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan began airing on Japanese TV on April 3. A few days prior to the première, FUNimation announced that they licensed the series. Since then, the company has streamed episodes as they air in Japan.

FUNimation describes The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan as follows:

From the creator of the international hit The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya comes a new spinoff featuring familiar faces! In an alternate universe, shy, awkward Yuki Nagato attempts to court her crush, Kyon, with the help of her best friend and neighbor, the perky and indomitable Ryoko Asakura. Together, the trio defends their high school literature club from extermination…and from the pestering of their over-the-top classmate Tsuruya and her friend and minion Mikuru. No true Haruhi devotee should miss The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan.
