The Japanese production Lerche launched the sci-fi mecha anime ‘RUMBLE GARANNDOLL’ in October 2011 with a planned twelve episodes for season one. The show is directed by Masaomi Andō and written by Makoto Uezu with Akio Watanabe handling the character designs. Funimation has announced that they have acquired the license to an English dub for the television show.
“A new dimension has revealed itself! We’re excited to announce that the RUMBLE GARANNDOLL English dub is officially on its way to Funimation, and we’ve got your first details on the series cast, crew and when you can watch,” they said on their website. “Episode 1 of the RUMBLE GARANNDOLL English dub will arrive on Funimation, which means it’s almost time to dive into this original sci-fi adventure, or just re-experience it from the jump!”
Funimation continued, “The series English voice cast includes Lindsay Seidel (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, Attack on Titan Final Season) as Rin Akagi, Nazeeh Tarsha (Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) as Hosomichi Kudo and Terri Doty (Wave, Listen to Me!, Asteroid in Love) as Misa Kuroki.”
The rest of the cast includes Adam Gibbs, Brendan Blaber, Stephen Fu, Sara Secora, Katelyn Barr, Alejandro Saab, Tia Ballard, and Kayli Mills.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Japan, 2019, just before the dawn of a new era. Suddenly, a rift to another dimension appears in the sky, revealing an alternative world “Shinkoku Nippon,” with the sky and the earth upside down. This parallel world keeps their former militarism, with its era being Eternal Showa. The military invades the real Japan with giant humanoid robots called “Garann” and their gas weapons “Genmu”, rendering our modern weapons ineffective. “Shinkoku Nippon” instantly seizes the government and achieves de facto conquest of Japan. The new era, “Reiwa,” has not arrived for Japan.”
