FUNimation recently announced the August 2nd, 2016 debut of The Rolling Girls with its DVD/BD combo set and the first trailer for it recently arrived. With the series previously getting a Broadcast Dub run, there aren’t exactly a lot of surprises here with it. The winter 2015 anime series set Colleen Clinkenbeard as the ADR director and Clifford Chapin as the assistant ADR director working from the dub script by Bonny Clinkenbeard, who is working off of the Japanese translation by Nita Lieu. The cast includes:
- Felicia Angelle- Nozomi
- Monica Rial- Yukina
- Jad Saxton- Ai
- Leah Clark- Chiaya
- Colleen Clinkenbeard- Masami
- Jamie Marchi- Shigyo
- Rachel Robinson- Haruka
- Tyson Rinehart- Momiyama
The show comes from Wit Studio and it has some really appealing designs to it. The series is going to star Ari Ozawa as Nozomi Moritomo, Rina Hidaka as Yukina Kosaka, Risa Taneda as Ai Hibiki and Yumiri Hanamori as Aya Misonochi.
The set comes with a pair of audio commentary tracks, episode previews, and the clean opening and closing sequences.
Plot concept: Gun your engines and get ready for the full-throttle adventure of The Rolling Girls, the first original anime from the studio that brought you Attack on Titan! In the wake of the Great Tokyo War, Japan – as the world once knew it – no longer exists. What remains is a fragmented network of independent nations, each ruled by a prophet known as a Mosa. Every Mosa commands an army, or Mob, as they seek to conquer anyone in their path. Enter Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, and Chiaya. Together, these intrepid and adorable girls travel across battle-ravaged Japan, seeking to transform themselves – and their world!
