News: Aniplex preview God Eater dub and reveal cast listing

Aniplex of America have posted a preview of the English dub for their North American Blu-ray release of God Eater, a series that’s overcome some significant obstacles to get to this point in proceedings. During its original July 2015 premiere, only nine episodes of a total of 13 aired, the ninth ending with an announcement that the final four were “coming this winter”. It then took until March of this year for the Meteorite arc, which covered episodes 10-13, to air.

The above video also announces the series’ English dub cast as follows:

Robbie Daymond (Sailor Moon‘s Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask) as Lenka Utsugi
Kyle Hebert (Bleach‘s Aizen) as Lindow Amamiya
Crispin Freeman (Durarara!!‘s Shizuo Heiwajima) as Soma Schicksal
Michelle Ruff (Bleach‘s Rukia) as Sakuya Tachibana
Lucien Dodge (Sailor Moon Crystal‘s Zoisite) as Kota Fujiki
Cherami Leigh (Fairy Tail‘s Lucy Heartfilia) as Alisa Illinichina Amiella
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex‘s Motoko Kusanagi) as Tsubaki Amamiya
Patrick Seitz (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s Dio Brando) as Johannes von Schicksal
Spike Spencer (Evangelion‘s Shinji Ikari) as Paylor Sakaki
Wendee Lee (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya‘s Haruhi) as Aisha Gauche

The year is now 2071… the domain of the mad gods lies here in the Far East. One single ray of hope remains for humanity. Following the development of “God Arcs”—living weapons which incorporate Oracle Cells—their wielders are organized into an elite force. In a world ravaged by mad gods, these “God Eaters” fight a desperate war…
