Brought to us from the Japanese animation production company Studio A-Cat, ‘LBX Girls’ is a spin-off of the anime ‘Little Battlers Experience,’ itself an adaption of the video game Danball Senki from Level-5.
‘LBX Girls’ is directed by Keitaro Motonaga and written by Yasuyuki Muto with a run of twelve episodes, so far. Funimation recently announced that they had acquired the license to produce an English dub.
“It’s time to gear up and dive right into the LBX Girls English dub,” they announced on their website.
“Bravely standing up to the hordes of Mimesis is Megan Taylor Harvey (Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater) as Riko, Laura Stahl (The Promised Neverland) as Yui, Kayli Mills (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) as Suzuno, alongside Kira Buckland (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure STONE OCEAN) as Kyoka and Heather Gonzalez (Kemono Jihen) as Miharu,” they continued. “They’re joined by Rachel Slotky (Kemono Jihen) as Mana, Zeno Robinson (The Case Study of Vanitas) as Nate and Doug Stone (Kill la Kill) as Chief.”
You can watch the trailer for the series below:
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows:
“Riko Morisawa, a young girl from Tokorozawa, goes on a trip to Tokyo with her friend Mana. While they roam around the shops of Ikebukuro, Riko spots a billboard about an event related to the Little Battlers eXperience (LBX) line of toys. Mana urges Riko to purchase one, and although initially declining, Riko soon avails a few LBX kits for her father.
Upon opening one of the boxes labeled “LBX Assassin,” a temporal rift manifests itself and transports Riko into the sky of an alternate Japan. While she falls at terminal velocity, an exosuit based on the LBX Assassin materializes around her, saving her from the descent. However, on the ground, she encounters the Mimesis, lethal metallic creatures that invade world after world. As she flees away from these monsters, Riko is rescued by four other LBX-equipped girls. After learning about Riko’s predicament, the group decides to recruit her into their combat unit.”
Madeleine Heil and Laura Stahl serve as the voice directors.
