English Cast Revealed for THE RISING OF THE SHIELD HERO SimulDub
The Rising of the Shield Hero is a new anime series that is getting same day simuldubs into English thanks to Crunchyroll and Funimation. This is Crunchyroll’s first simuldub title, but I doubt it will be their last. Starting on January 9, 2019, fans can watch the latest episodes as they air in Japan every Wednesday. If you prefer subtitled anime though, you’ll want to make sure to go team Crunchyroll, as Funimation will not be doing a simulsub.
If this sounds like your kind of show, you’ll also be excited to know who the main cast for the English dub will be. According to AnimeMojo, Billy Kametz will voice Naofumi Iwatani, Erica Mendez will be Raphtalia, Brianna Knickerbocker’s voice will be heard from Filo, Ren Amaki will be voiced by Alan Lee, Motoyasu Kitamura will have Xander Mobus’ voice, and finally, Erik Scott Kimerer will be voicing Itsuki Kawasumi.
