No Game, No Life Dub Stars Caitlynn French As Shiro

Finally, the infamous 『  』 have been identified!

Well… their English dub actors have, at least.

Last night, Sentai Filmworks announced the second member of its upcoming dub for No Game, No Life. The company revealed that Caitlynn French (Girls und Panzer, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya) will play the role of female lead Shiro who, with her brother Sora, makes up half of infamous gaming duo 『  』 (“Blank”).

No Game, No Life aired on Japanese TV in the Spring 2014 anime season. Sentai Filmworks announced that they licensed the show in April, shortly after the original première. The company will release the series on Blu-Ray and DVD in July.

As a bit of a shameless plug, No Game, No Life won a unanimous “Show of the Year” award from our Nerdy Talk podcast crew last year.

Last week, Sentai revealed that the part of Sora will be played by Scott Gibbs (Magical Warfare). We’ve provided the announcement trailer below:
