It’s time to meet the inmates in Cell Block 13.
On Friday, Funimation unveiled the English dub cast for Nanbaka. The series will star the following:
- Jyugo: Daman Mills
- Hajime: Ian Sinclair
- Uno: Alejandro Saab
- Niko: Justin Briner
- Rock: Jarrod Greene
Aaron Dismuke is directing the adaptation and writing the scripts. Jamal Roberson is serving as ADR Engineer on the project, while Andrew Tipps serves as Mix Engineer.
The first episode’s dub started streaming last night on FunimationNow. The show began airing on Japanese TV on October 4.
Nanbaka adapts Sho Futamata’s manga of the same name. Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing) is directing the series at Satelight, while Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, Sweetness and Lightning) pens the scripts.
Funimation describes the show as:
Welcome to Nanba, the world’s largest, most impenetrable prison. Locked away in cell block 13 are four inmates who provide more than enough trouble for Officer Hajime. Between attempted breakouts, gambling, and general misbehaving, these four believe that just because they’re in prison doesn’t mean they can’t have fun! Follow the hijinks of Jyugo, Uno, Rock, and Nico as they pass time behind bars.
Crunchyroll is streaming Nanbaka as part of its fall 2016 simulcast lineup.
