“Alright, isekai fans. This one’s for you. We’re excited to announce that the ‘How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Ω’ English dub is officially coming to Funimation soon, and we’ve got confirmed details on the series cast and crew,” they wrote.

Eric Vale (Dragon Ball Z) is taking the role of the protagonist Takuma Sakamoto, also known as Diablo. Sarah Wiedenheft (My Hero Academia) will portray the Elf summoner Shera L. Greenwood with Jad Paxton (Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town) voicing her teenaged partner Rem Galleu.

The rest of the cast includes Marissa Lenti, Kristi Rothrock, Clifford Chapin, Garret Storms, Juliana Pagan, Madeleine Morris, and Amber Lee Connors. Jeremy Inman will serve as the ADR Director.

The story of ‘How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord’ follows Takuma Sakamoto, an isolated “gamer who gets mysteriously transported to the virtual world of his favorite MMORPG, Cross Reverie, with the appearance of his own character in the game, the Demon Lord Diablo. The two young girls who summoned him, the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera, attempt to use a spell to make Takuma their servant, but due to his magic ring with the ability “Magic Reflection”, the spell rebounds, and both end up with magic collars stuck on their necks, thus becoming his servants instead.”
