ACEN 10: FUNi announces Eden of the East, Casshern dubs


What, you thought the only thing FUNimation was doing today at ACEN was announcing hot new licenses? Well, they also paraded out some new voice acting casts for the dubs of their upcoming titles. Casshern Sins, Corpse Princess and Eden of the East were all brought out.

I hate to break it to you guys, but our favorite voice actor, Vic McFlurry, is not amongst any of the voice actors mentioned in these three shows.

I'm sorry that I just ruined your day. But at least we have release dates: Eden of the East on September 28th, Casshern Sins in August and Corpse Princess on September 14th.

While you're grieving, check out the cast lists after the jump. A lot of the names don't sound overly familiar to me, so I'm looking forward to checking this out.

Casshern – a cybernetic assassin with no memory of his past – awakens in a corrosive wasteland where nothing survives for long. A plague known as the Ruin sweeps across this once-vibrant world, reducing everything in its path to rubble and scattering any chance for salvation. Robots and humans alike – or what little remains of them – seek vengeance against Casshern for the life he took and the role he played in their Ruin. A machine built to kill, Casshern murdered the last hope for this world, but now, lost in a future he does not recognize, he will fight to save the dying.

About Eden of the East    
Akira Takizawa wakes up naked outside the White House with no memories. He’s got a gun in one hand, a cell phone in the other, and doesn’t know if he’s a good guy or one of the worst. He doesn’t remember the phone gives him instant access to ten billion yen and a woman who can make his most outlandish requests a reality. He doesn’t recall his connection to the ongoing missile attacks terrorizing the Japanese people. Or the part he played in the sudden disappearance of 20,000 shut-ins. He doesn’t even remember he’s supposed to save Japan and will be murdered if he fails. Whatever it is he’s tangled up in, Takizawa’s definitely in deep – and that’s not even scratching the surface.


FUNimation Entertainment will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray on September 28, 2010.
