Funimation Unveils Clockwork Planet Dub Cast

Before you ask, yes, it’s frowned upon when you ask whether the planet needs to be wound daily.

Earlier today, Funimation unveiled the English dub cast for Clockwork Planet. The series will star the following:

  • Naoto: Dallas Reid
  • Ryuzu: Jeannie Tirado
  • Marie: Skyler McIntosh
  • Halter: Christopher R Sabat

Kyle Phillips is directing the adaptation, which features scripts by Bonny Clinkenbeard. Patrick Morphy is handling ADR Engineer duties, while Andrew Tipps serves as Mixing Engineer.

Clockwork Planet‘s dub will début on FunimationNow on May 8 at 9:00PM Eastern (6:00PM Pacific). The series debuted on Japanese TV on April 6.

Clockwork Planet adapts Yuu Kamiya and Tsubaki Himana’s light novel series of the same name. Tsuyoshi Nagasawa (MM!, Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!) is directing the show at Xebec, with Shuichi Shimamura (Honey and Clover, Saber Marionette J) providing character designs. Kenji Sugihara (Shiki, Oreca Battle) is in charge of series composition.

Funimation describes the show as:

Earth ended years ago. In its place is a planet built from gears and clockwork parts. This is the home of high school student, Naoto Miura, a brilliant amateur tinkerer and an oddball who can hear and feel the movement of gears. One day, a black box comes crashing through the roof of his house, and inside of it is a female automaton. Her presence and his genius are bound to change the world.
