The anime adaptation of the Plunderer manga from Suu Minazuki is set for the winter 2020 season with Funimation already set to simulcast it. They’re also going to produce a simuldub for it and they’ve added two more dub actors to the project at NYCC with Austin Tindle as Pele Popolo and Elizabeth Maxwell as Lynn May. The project has brought on board Eric Vale and Sarah Wiedenheft to take on the two lead roles.

Funimation also launched a lengthy video that has a new trailer for the series and then an interview with the Japanese voice actors for the two newly announced dub characters, Aoi Ichikawa and Ari Ozawa.

And if that wasn’t enough, Funimation was also able to reveal that Miku Itō will perform the opening theme song “Plunderer” while Rina Honnizumi will perform the ending theme song “Countless Days” for the production.

The series is directed by Hiroyuki Kanbe based on the scripts overseen by Masashi Suzuki. Yuka Takashina and Hiroki Fukuda are working on the character designs with studio Geek Toys handling the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes:

  • Yoshiki Nakajima as Licht Bach
  • Rina Honnizumi as Hina
  • Ari Ozawa as Lynn May
  • Aoi Ichikawa as Pele
  • Yuichiro Umehara as Jail Murdoch
  • Shizuka Itou as Nana

The manga from Suu Minazuki began in 2014 and has twelve volumes out so far. Yen Press is releasing it in English.

Plot Concept: It’s the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, and the world is controlled by numbers. Every human born is branded with a “Count,” which could mean anything from the number of kilometers walked to the amount of people who have said your food is tasty. And if your Count drops to 0… you’ll be sent into the Abyss! After Hina’s mother’s Count dropped to 0, her last request is for Hina to look for the Legendary Red Baron.
