David Vincent in another Funimation project! Nice!

@UK-Otaku He's certainly doing a lot of Funimation stuff nowadays, isn't he?

The list of primarily LA voice actors doing Funimation work is growing larger every year, it seems.

@VocalChameleon that's because HyperDimension Neptunia and presumably Blazblue were recorded in Texas. This show seems to have been recorded at the same time.

@doodleboy It'd also explain Cristina Valenzuela's involvement, and if that's the case, then we shouldn't expect to see much more from them in the future.

However, I wouldn't mind if they stuck around for more Funimation roles. Funimation's good at getting great performances from roles that seem atypical for certain voice actors, and David Vincent's role here proves that.

@doodleboy Actually Blazblue not recorded in Dallas but in LA, but Neptunia was recorded at Funimation

Seems like 'Elizabeth Lewis' is an alias. Hmm.

@doodleboy It turned out today that "Elizabeth Lewis" is an alias for Lindsay Seidel. Interesting.

Cristina Vee in an ecchi anime...I never thought I'd see the day and in a FUNimation dub nonetheless.

Well what Sharkssmart said is probably the case but still that's cool.

I'd love to hear Alexis Tipton play Sakura. That would be the perfect role for her.

Licensed by FUNimation = Cool.

I have an idea who would play Misaki and Jackal: Jamie Marchi and Jennifer Green, respectively.

@MegaMike1990 For my opinion, I would say Morgan Garret as Misaki and Jennifer Seman as Jackal.

@mypetgoat Hmmm, interesting. While I like my opinion, I like yours as well.

@MegaMike1990 Even if you're wrong, I guarantee that Jamie Marchi will be in this anime. She's always in these kinds of anime.

@Dustinman2012 True

I'm surprised Funimation didn't pick this up (maybe after Crunchyroll finishes its simulcast run).

It's not perfect but it's a fun guilty pleasure and it actually gets good in episode 6.

Fanservice could be better but the uncensored Blu-rays and the new OVA shorts could be an improvement.

If this sells well in Japan I wonder if there's a chance Ring x Mama could get an anime; that was a great manga! :P

@Mr_Ecchi_Man Funimation has officially licensed this show. Check it out: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-10-28/funimation-licenses-wanna-be-the-strongest-in-the-world-wrestling-anime/.80423

Better late than never. Hopefully Funimation uses their best female talent (ecchi dubbers, no Jamie Marchi = fail) instead of newcomers who put in half-assed effort. Though if a bunch of aliases are used which is likely (because of the moaning) I'll probably have to end up hearing it to confirm some voices myself even if there's nobody cast I care about.
