‘Show by Rock’ is a mobile musical video game from developers Geechs and Edia. The popularity of the game led to the production of five different anime with the latest incarnation “Show by Rock!! Stars!!” being produced by the Japanese production company Kinema Citrus. Funimation announced that had acquired the rights to do an English dub.
“How’s this for a beat drop? All 12 episodes of the Show by Rock!! Stars!! English dub are coming to Funimation,” they said on their website. “The Mashumairesh!! band is back together for the new series, headlining Macy Anne Johnson as Howan, Emi Lo as Delmin, Giovannie Cruz as Himeko and Lindsay Sheppard as Ruhuyu.”
The rest of the cast includes Bryn Apprill (A Certain Magical Index II), Christopher R. Sabat (Dragon Ball Z), Alexis Tipton (Black Butler), Caitlin Glass (Ouran High School Host Club), Monica Rial ( Dance in the Vampire Bund), Ben Phillips (Yona of the Dawn), Rachel Robinson (Attack on Titan), Stephen Fu (Kakuriyo: Bed and Breakfast for Spirits), Ian Sinclair (Grimoire of Zero), Jad Saxton (Haganai: I don’t have many friends), Suzie Yeung (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train), and Amber Lee Connors (Tales of Zestiria the X).
