Catching up on some dub streaming news that happened while I was away, some new availability has landed for Chain Chronicle. Crunchyroll ran the Chain Chronicle series back in 2017 as a simulcast and it saw a simuldub through Funimation at the time. That dub has now arrived for streaming on Crunchyroll where they don’t list the regional availability for it but it’s presumably the same as the main show. The full series is available in dubbed form here.
The show was directed by Tia Ballard and the sizable cast for it has been confirmed with Orion Pitts as Aram, Ricco Fajardo as Yuri, Felecia Angelle as Juliana, Clifford Chapin as Kain, David Wald as Black King, J Michael Tatum as Burckhardt, Monica Rial as Eirenus, Dawn M. Bennett as Phoena, Caitlin Glass as Mishidia, R. Bruce Elliot as Narrator, Alejandro Saab as Aries, Tyson Rinehart as Rafaga, Tia Ballard as Pirika, Justin Briner as Clauss, Alexis Tipton as Veinta, Ian Sinclair as Einslot, Ryan Reynolds as Lolo, Apphia Yu as Marina, Cris George as Shuza, Daman Mills as Velner, Josh Grelle as Wayne and Aaron Roberts as Yoshitsugu.
The series has the opening sequence with the song “MY LIBERATION” by Nano as well as the ending theme song “True Destiny” by Nao Toyama to check out and get our day underway with.
Plot concept: This is the story of the Chain Chronicle, a book that describes everything that happens in the world.
The citizens of the remote continent of Yggd once thought that there was nothing beyond their continent. The continent was divided into several regions, each with its own king. Though there were small skirmishes amongst them, a lord, chosen by the kings in conference, always maintained balance – until the evil Black Army arrived.
“All will be engulfed in black.”
The Volunteer Army, led by Yuri, was no match for the Black Army. During the fighting, the Lord of Black captures half of the Chain Chronicle, as well as the capital. During their retreat, Yuri and the Volunteer Army encounter a boy fighting the Black Army all by himself.
So begins the story of the Chain Chronicle, of the Volunteer Army’s and Black Army’s battles for the fate of the world, and of friendship.
