Funimation Unveils “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid” Dub Cast

It’s time to say “hello” to the new dragon on the block!

Earlier today, Funimation announced their English dub cast for Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. The series will star the following:

  • Miss Kobayashi: Leah Clark
  • Tohru: Sarah Wiedenheft
  • Kanna: Jad Saxton
  • Fafnir: Garret Storms
  • Lucoa: Jamie Marchi
  • Takiya Makoto: Jeff Johnson

Kyle Phillips is directing the adaptation, which features scripts by Jamie Marchi. Jose Sandoval will serve as ADR Engineer, while Gino Palencia works as Mix Engineer.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid will hit FunimationNow on February 1, at 10:00PM Eastern (7:00PM Pacific). The series originally premiered on Japanese TV on January 11. Crunchyroll currently offers the series as a subtitled simulcast.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is based on Coolkyoushinja’s (I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying) manga of the same name. Yasuhiro Takemoto (Lucky Star, Amagi Brilliant Park) is directing the series at Kyoto Animation, with Miku Kadowaki (Beyond the Boundary, Amagi Brilliant Park) providing character designs. Yuka Yamada (Yuka Yamada, Umi Monogatari) is in charge of series composition.

Crunchyroll describes the show as:

Miss Kobayashi is your average office worker who lives a boring life, alone in her small apartment–until she saves the life of a female dragon in distress. The dragon, named Tohru, has the ability to magically transform into an adorable human girl (albeit with horns and a long tail!), who will do anything to pay off her debt of gratitude, whether Miss Kobayashi likes it or not. With a very persistent and amorous dragon as a roommate, nothing comes easy, and Miss Kobayashi’s normal life is about to go off the deep end!
