Editor’s note: That pun was terrible, and we feel bad for making it.

Last night, FUNimation unveiled the English dub cast for No-Rin. The series will star the following:

  • Kousaku Hata: Austin Tindle
  • Ringo Kinoshita: Jād Saxton
  • Minori Nakazawa: Lynsey Hale
  • Kei Kamatori: Derick Snow
  • Kochou Yoshida: Megan Shipman
  • Natsumi “Becky”: Tia Ballard
  • Wakadanna: Caitlin Glass
  • Rintarou Miyamoto: Jarrod Greene
  • Torao Kanegami: Morgan Garrett
  • Kaoru Hanazono: Joel McDonald
  • Akari Suzuki: Bryn Apprill

As of press time, a director for the adaptation has yet to be revealed.

No-Rin is a 2014 slice-of-life comedy, based on Shiratori Shirow’s light novel series of the same name. Shin Oonuma(Baka and Test, Watamote) directed the show at Silver Link, with Masahito Onoda providing character designs. Michiko Yokote was in charge of series composition on the project.

FUNimation will release No-Rin on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 23. The company describes the show as follows:

There once was a teen named Kosaku
Who was…mildly obsessed with an idol
He mailed her some veggies
To keep her bod healthy
And, SURPRISE, she showed up at Agriculture school!

Now that Ringo (the pop artist formerly known as Yuka) is a student at Tamo Agricultural High School, she’s ready to ho, sow, and plow her way to the top! But first she has to learn…pretty much everything about farming. On top of that, Kosaku’s best friend, Minori, is waaaaaay jelly of his friendship with Ringo on account of her not-so-hidden feelings for him, and seeds of rivalry begin to sprout between the two. And the biggest mystery still remains: What’s a world famous pop star doing at an agricultural high school?

FUNimation currently streams No-Rin in its entirety on the company’s digital platform.
