It’s time to go to a place, where all the valkyries are mermaids, or something.
Yesterday, Funimation unveiled the English dub cast for Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid. The title is slated to hit home video in April 2017.
Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid will star the following:
- Mirei: Mandy Lane
- Mamori: Kayla Hardwick
- Akira: Janelle Lutz
- Kasumi: Roseanne Palmer
- Charlotte: Monica Rial
- Meifeng: Brittney Karbowski
- Rain: Cecilia Higginbotham
- Miyasato: Haley Esposito
- Kouzuki: Sara Ragsdale

The series originally aired during the Fall 2015 broadcast season. Hiraku Kaneko (Maken-Ki! Battling Venus 2, The Qwaser of Stigmata) directed the project and designed the characters at studio ARMS. Yousuke Kuroda (Gundam Build Fighters, Jormungand) took charge of series composition.
Funimation describes Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid as:
After adorable “mermaid” Mamori is transferred to one of five artificial islands, she’s cornered, attacked and eventually saved by another beautiful transfer named Mirei. Unfortunately, even after the girl intervenes, Mamori’s attackers refuse to let up. Just when they think all hope is lost, Mirei and Mamori share a passionate kiss that turns the little “mermaid” into a powerful sword in this new show from series composer Yousuke Kuroda (High School of the Dead, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) and ARMS studio (Ikki Tousen, Queen’s Blade, Elfen Leid).
