FUNimation tweeted yesterday that they’ll be streaming an English broadcast dub of the My Hero Academia anime, and later on their Dubbletalk programme they revealed the main dub cast. The talent on board for the dubbed stream, which will start on May 4th, has been confirmed on the FUNimation Blog as below:
The voice of Vegeta himself, Christopher R. Sabat, as All Might
Justin Briner of Heavy Object and Seraph of the End as Izuku
Luci Christian, The Boy and the Beast‘s Kyuta and Nami in One Piece, as Ochaco
Attack on Titan‘s Conny Springer, Clifford Chapin as Bakugo
FUNimation describe the story of My Hero Academia:
There’s a new hero in town! From Studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class.
Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
