Funimation announces cast for English Danganronpa anime

Funimation has announced that it will be rolling out an English version of Danganronpa: The Animation, but only one of the cast members from the game will be reprising their role for the series.

A post on Funimation’s blog confirms that only Bryce Papenbrook, voice of protagonist Makoto Naegi, will be voicing his character in the dubbed version of the anime. All other characters, including series mascot Monokuma, will be portrayed by actors other than the ones who voice them in the visual novel.

The full cast list reads as follows:

Monokuma – Greg Ayres
Naegi – Bryce Papenbrook
Asahina – Felecia Angelle
Celestia – Lindsay Seidel
Enoshima – Jamie Marchi
Fujisaki – Kara Edwards
Fukawa – Carli Mosier

Ishimaru – Austin Tindle
Kirigiri – Caitlin Glass
Leon – Justin Cook
Maizono – Monica Rial
Ohgami – Rachel Robinson
Ohwada – Christopher R. Sabat
Togami – Josh Grelle
Yamada – Tyson Rinehart

Danganronpa: The Animation follows the story for the first game in the series, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

Both Trigger Happy Havoc and its direct sequel Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair are available now on PlayStation Vita. NIS America recently announced that it will be localizing the series’ third-person shooter spin-off called Danganronpa: Another Episode this fall, which we recently got some hands-on time with.

Developer Spike Chunsoft is currently working on the third game in the series, but it is still in the early stages of development, and has been compared to Back to the Future.
