While NIS America made the announcement of a bilingual Toradora release today, they’ve already got their dub trailer loaded and ready to go. The release is getting a significant upgrade from their launch release of the show, which was DVD only and in Japanese with subtitles, as it will see a DVD/BD combo release with the new dub.
The English cast for this release has been revealed for the primary characters with:
Cassandra Lee Morris as Taiga Aisaka
Erik Scott Kimerer as Ryuji Takasu
Christine Marie Cabanos as Minori Kushieda
Johnny Yong Bosch as Yusaku Kitamura
Erika Harlacher as Ami Kawashima
Plot concept: Ryuji Takasu is cursed with his father’s threatening face and is labeled a “delinquent” because of it. Even though this makes it difficult for him to meet people, he is madly in love with Minorin, the one girl who does not flee from him in terror. Taiga Aisaka is a notorious hothead with the nickname “Palm-top Tiger.” She also happens to be Minorin’s best friend, and what’s more, Taiga has a crush on Ryuji’s closest friend. his unlikely duo strikes a tenuous agreement to assist one another in stealing the hearts of the ones they love. They will face many hurdles along the way, but perhaps true love is closer to them than they think.
