Orient’s Awaji Island Recapture Operation Arc has been in full swing since the anime’s second cour debuted in July. The only thing missing from it was a fantastic English dub, which Crunchyroll has started delivering already.
All anime get tougher with every episode, and similarly Orient is also facing its most challenging arc yet. Musashi and Kojiro might have some strong allies now, but that doesn’t mean they have secured victory yet.
Sadly, dub watchers had been missing out on the fun for a month until Crunchyroll came through with Orient’s English-dubbed episodes for part 2. The platform has started streaming, and you can catch the dubbed episode 13 on their site right now.
It would be a shame not to reveal the fantastic dub cast for all the characters that will be making their debut in the anime’s cour 2, so here it is:
|Musashi||A.J. Beckles||Takemichi Hanagaki (Tokyo Revengers)|
|Kojiro||Stephen Fu||Haru Kasugai (Kono Oto Tomare!)|
|Tsugumi||Emi Lo||Kate (Shadows House)|
|Naoe||Caleb Yen||Fred Porlock (Moriarty the Patriot)|
|Naotora||Daman Mills||Osamu Miya (Haikyu!!)|
|Tatsuomi/Haruhisa||Kaiji Tang||Osamu Dazai (Bungo Stray Dogs)|
|Katsumi/Natsuki||Brian Anderson||Opera (Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun)|
|Shunrai||Kristen McGuire||Hinano Kurahashi (Assassination Classroom)|
|Aoshi||Ben Balmaceda||Raido (Aharen-san wa Hakarenai)|
|Akihiro||Aleks Le||Zenitsu Agatsuma (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)|
|Shige||Shara Kirby||Tomomi Takei (Kageki Shoujo!!)|
|Yataro||Jalen K. Cassell||Abengane (Hunter × Hunter)|
|Mamori||Kimberley Anne Campbell||Nagatoro (Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro)|
|Narrator||Mick Lauer||Leonhard Saijo (The Irregular at Magic High School)|
|Kijinosuke||Brandon McInnis||Sir Nighteye (My Hero Academia)|
|Keiji||Brent Mukai||Atsuya Baba (ODDTAXI)|
|Hikaru||Howard Wang||Louis James Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot)|
|Michiru||Xanthe Huynh||Hermit Mio (Edens Zero)|
The cast lineup looks absolutely amazing, and with so many talents working on Orient, the dub will indeed be superior.
To be honest, a cast like this is necessary considering the storyline Orient is going through right now. The emotions cannot be expressed by anyone but pros and seeing their various other works, I can safely say that the anime is in good hands.
Coming to the story, I’m deeply invested in it right now. Introducing the Uesugi Bushidan was a brilliant move and has already increased the hype around the anime.
Let’s see what else this arc brings us in the coming episodes.
