According to Funimation, three popular and experienced voice actors have signed on to the new series. Hirotaka Shimazama, better known as Chafurin, (Lupin the 3rd vs. Detective Conan, Death Note) is voicing Professor Big Gelato, Tomokazu Sugita (Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle, RUMBLE GARANNDOLL) is playing Supreme Leader Bosslar and Hiroki Yasumoto (Sword Art Online: Alicication - War of Underworld, The God of High School) voices Culverin Bear.
