Leraldo Anzaldua Plays Toru Acura In Chaika The Coffin Princess Dub

Chaika’s journey continues, though she won’t be going it alone.

Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks announced the second member of their Chaika The Coffin Princess dub cast. The 15-second teaser gives fans a brief look at Leraldo Anzaldua’s performance as Toru Acura.

Chaika The Coffin Princess is based on Ichirō Sakaki’s light novel series of the same name. The series was helmed by Scrapped Princess director Soichi Masui at studio Bones. Nobuhiro Arai provided character designs on the project, while Touko Machida (Wake Up, Girls!) took charge of series composition.

The show aired in the spring 2014 anime season, and ran for 12 episodes. A sequel, Chaika The Coffin Princess: Avenging Battle hit Japanese TV in the fall 2014 broadcast season.

Sentai will release Chaika – The Coffin Princess on December 15. Crunchyroll is currently streaming both seasons of the show on its digital platform.

Previously, Sentai released a teaser to confirm that Joanne Bonasso will play Akari.

"Akira was one of my favorite things I ever saw. My friend Mike, he was an illustrator in the same course as me, he introduced me to it. It was mind-blowing. Anything with movement like that, I was like 'This is insane.'"
