Five new anime will receive dubs this spring.
Crunchyroll revealed five anime airing this spring that will be dubbed and broadcast on its streaming service, including the highly anticipated Tokyo Revengers, the philosophical To Your Eternity, the two fantasy series I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and part 2 of So I'm a Spider, So What? and the comedic Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 2.
Made by the studio behind Arslan Senki and Berserk (2016), Tokyo Revengers premiered this Sunday, introducing viewers to its grim story of Takemichi Hanagaki, who must time-travel back to his youth to rewrite the future and save his recently murdered ex-girlfriend Hinata. No cast announcements have been made as of yet, but Crunchyroll confirmed Tokyo Revengers will receive an English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and French dub, as will To Your Eternity, I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and So I'm a Spider, So What?
To Your Eternity is a supernatural drama that follows It, an emotionless and mysterious immortal entity that is able to assume the shape and form of objects and beings around itself. It travels to Earth and assumes the form of an abandoned boy, starting a journey to discover more about this foreign world. The original manga the series is based on is by Yoshitoki Ōima, author of the critically beloved A Silent Voice.
Based on a light novel by Kisetsu Morita and illustrated by Benio, I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years follows office worker Azusa Aizawa who dies from overworking and is reincarnated as an immortal witch in a new fantasy world. There she unknowingly becomes the highest level being by continuously killing slimes and reaping the XP rewards over hundreds of years. The series depicts her attempts to live a subdued, low-stress life, despite the dangers and inconveniences her immense power creates for her.
So I'm a Spider, So What? is a story about a girl who, with her entire class, is reincarnated into a fantasy world reminiscent of an RPG. But while her classmates are reincarnated as princes and kings, nerdy shut-in Kumoko is reincarnated as a spider, one of the weaker beings in this world. An experienced RPG gamer, the morally ambiguous Kumoko realizes she must strategically hunt low-level prey to level-up and survive. Brianna Knickerbocker of Carole and Tuesday (Tuesday) and Re:Zero (Rem) fame is set to reprise her role as Kumoko for part 2, with Laura Post (March Comes in Like a Lion, Great Pretender), Landon McDonald (Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer), Xander Mobus (The Rising of the Shield Hero, ERASED) and Cherami Leigh (Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail, Sailor Moon) filling out the supporting roles.
Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun is a comedic anime about fourteen-year-old Iruma Suzuki. After his parents sell him to the demon Sullivan, the monster prepares him to become the next Demon King. Sullivan forces Iruma to enroll in the demon school Babyls, of which Sullivan is the chairman, and Iruma must desperately attempt to hide the fact that he is actually human from his classmates. The English dub of the second season will see Laura Stahl (The Promised Neverland, Genshin Impact) reprise her role as Iruma Suzuki, Billy Kametz (Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) as Alice Asmodeus and Kayli Mills (Re:Zero, Sword Art Online: Alicization) as the romantically frutstrated Valac Clara.
Crunchyroll also announced three fantasy anime that they will produce international dubs for, including That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Re:Zero - Starting Life in Another World and The Rising of the Shield Hero. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime will receive a French, Spanish and Portuguese dub of its first season and five OVAs. Re: Zero will receive a Spanish and Portuguese dub of its second season and two OVAs. The Rising of the Shield Hero will receive a Portuguese, Spanish and French dub as well.
