Rhiannon Ross Joins Emma: A Victorian Romance Dub Staff


Emma A Victorian Romance Key VisualThis should put a lot of concerns to rest.

Earlier today, Right Stuf announced that Rhiannon Ross will join the English dub staff for Emma: A Victorian Romance. According to the announcement, Ross will work at Headline Studios as an advisor. She’ll be tasked with attending recording sessions to assist any actors cast in the production, to ensure that their characters have the proper dialects.

Rhiannon Ross has been active as an actress since she was twelve years old. She was accepted into a year-long Foundation Course at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. From there, she attended Drama Centre London’s BA Acting course.

Right Stuf’s Kickstarter to produce an English dub for Emma: A Victorian Romance reached its $110,000 funding goal this morning. As of press time, the campaign stands at $113,754 across 880 backers, with an average contribution of $129.27 per backer.

Three stretch goals have been announced as of press time:

  • $120,000: Written interview with Emma creator Kaoru Mori
  • $135,000: Emma season 1 dub commentary
  • $180,000: Emma season 2 dub production

Emma: A Victorian Romance originally aired during the Spring 2005 broadcast season. The series was directed by Tsuneo Kobayashi (Super GALS!, Kurokami the Animation) at Studio Pierrot, with Keiko Shimizu and Yuko Kusumoto (Midori Days, Twelve Kingdoms) providing character designs. Mamiko Ikeda (Maid Sama!, Rental Magica) wrote the scenario.

Right Stuf describes the series as:

In 19th-century London, class lines are sharply drawn, and the social standing to which people are born dictates the path their lives will follow. Emma, an honest and hardworking young maid, never felt her place in life to be a burden. But then she met William, a member of the gentry and the eldest son of a wealthy family. His warm smile and earnest affection threaten to capture her heart… but can love truly conquer all?

That Time I Saw Nagito Komaeda At Whole Foods

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
