Funimation Unveils Space Patrol Luluco Dub Teaser

Lawbreakers, beware. The great Space Patrol is on the case… again!

Earlier today, Funimation started streaming a new dub teaser for Space Patrol Luluco. The 105-second trailer features narration by Brittney Karbowski, who plays Luluco in the series.

Funimation will release Space Patrol Luluco on home video on October 10. The English dub will star the following:

  • Luluco: Brittney Karbowski
  • Nova: Justin Briner
  • Midori: Jamie Marchi
  • Keiji: Brett Weaver
  • Lalaco Godspeed: Monica Rial
  • Overjustice: Bob Carter
  • Judgment Gun: Mike McFarland

Christopher Bevins is directing the adaptation, which features scripts by John Burgmeier and Bonny Clinkenbeard.

Space Patrol Luluco is an original project from Studio Trigger and Hiroyuki Imaishi (Kill la Kill, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann). Imaishi directed the project and handled series composition, while Yusuke Yoshigaki (Ninja Slayer From Animation, Black Rock Shooter) and Mago provided character designs.

The series aired in the Spring 2016 broadcast season. Funimation describes Space Patrol Luluco as:

Luluco’s dad has been frozen in a block of ice, and there’s only one way for this middle schooler to pay for the treatment-by taking his place in the Space Patrol! It’s a total pain, until she gets partnered with some perfect crush material, a.k.a. the handsome Nova from outer space. After her hometown of Ogikubo gets sucked into a black hole, it’s up to Luluco and a bunch of weirdos to track it down.
