Star of Chaika – The Coffin Princess English dub revealed

Alongside releasing the cast for their classic Gatchaman movie dub, Sentai Filmworks’ new video announcement reveals their star of the fantasy light novel adaptation Chaika – The Coffin Princess.

Joanne Bonasso will voice the dubbed saboteur extraordinaire Akari Acura, and season one of the Studio Bones anime will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 15th. Sentai have described the story as follows:

The end of the war with the Gaz Empire only meant unemployment for former Saboteur Toru Acura. So when he collides with fate in the form of a young girl carrying a coffin through a forest, it doesn’t take much convincing for Toru and his similarly inclined step-sister Akari to join young wizard Chaika on her bizarre quest: to collect the scattered body parts of the former Emperor. Unfortunately, the severed pieces were carried off by the Heroes who killed him, and some think that reassembling them could restart the war! On top of that, Chaika may not be who she claims to be, as there are others conducting similar missions all across the kingdoms. Is Chaika a dead man’s daughter, picking up the pieces for burial, or is there something far more sinister in the works? The winds of war are stirring and there are dragons waiting in the darkness ahead for CHAIKA – THE COFFIN PRINCESS!

Chaika – The Coffin Princess’s first season, based on Ichiro Sakaki’s light novels, premiered in April 2014, with the second following in October the same year. While Crunchyroll aired simulcasts of both series, Yen Press also published the first volume of Shinta Sakayama’s manga adaptation as an e-book and trade paperback on June 23rd this year. Volume four of the manga currently has a planned digital and physical release for March 22nd 2016.
