Aniplex of America Announces English Dub for “March comes in like a lion” Anime

This weekend’s panel by audio studio  Bang Zoom! Entertainment at Anime Central in Rosemont, Illinois announced that they will be working with Aniplex of America to produce an English dub of the March comes in like a lion anime. Bang Zoom! Entertainment has also partnered with Aniplex of America to bring the Open Auditions for the series to the Midwest for the first time.


They explained that this will be the fifth year Aniplex of America and Bang Zoom! Entertainment have teamed up to host the Open Auditions.. Participants receive a special pin for auditioning as well. Past winners of the Open Auditions have been involved on the English dub for shows including Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, ALDNOAH.ZERO, Asterisk War, and Your lie in April. While Bang Zoom! Entertainment’s Open Audition at Anime Central was announced a month prior on the Anime Central Facebook page, the project for the auditions had been kept tightly under wraps.

Wendee Lee (Cowboy BeBop, Blue Exorcist, Your lie in April) will be the Voice Director for the English dub.

Bang Zoom! Entertainment will be holding Open Auditions Friday through Sunday from 11 am to 12:15 pm at Anime Central with call back auditions in the afternoon of the same day. They will also be hosting “Anime Live! A Presentation of Real Time Professional Dubbing” on Saturday and Sunday.
