Finishing a guessing game over this past week, here is the English dub cast for AIR TV and what I assume will be for the movie, although some characters only make cameos in the movie:
From AnimeonDVD.com forums:
Yukito Kunisaki – Voiced by Vic Mignogna - A young man in his 20s, Yukito travels about the country, trying to earn money by putting on puppet shows. The interesting thing? He can control his puppet without strings, something his mother taught him before she died. But somehow this fails to impress the local kids... His summer in Kami will alter the fates of three very different girls.
Misuzu Kamio – Voiced by Monica Rial - A cheerful, but slightly odd klutz, Misuzu is the first girl Yukito meets, and the one who provides him with a place to stay. She adores dinosaurs and has a habit of saying “gao,” a sound Japanese children associate with dinosaurs, whenever she’s upset. Despite her sunny disposition, Misuzu isn’t very close to any of her classmates, and seems desperate for a companion to play with.
Kano Kirishima – Voiced by Stephanie Whittles - “Spunky and energetic, with a joking personality” describes Kano--most of the time that is. Since both her parents have died, she lives with her older sister, the local doctor. Her ability to communicate with the town stray, Potato, is a source of confusion to Yukito. Kano wears a yellow ribbon around her wrist at all times and believes that when she is grown, she’ll take it off and be able to use magic, though she doesn’t know why she thinks that.
Minagi Tohno – Voiced by Kira Vincent Davis - A good student and the president of the Astronomy Club. Actually, she’s its only member. A quiet and polite girl, whose only friend is Michiru, a younger girl who is almost her polar opposite in personality. Like the other girls, she has a secret which Yukito must unravel.
Haruko Kamio – Voiced by Luci Christian - When Misuzu says her mother is “really lax” she isn’t kidding. Haruko crashes her motorbike into the shed every night! She’s got a very forceful personality and a fondness for alcohol. Her relationship with Misuzu is more complex, as if she wants to be close to her but can’t bring herself to do it fully.
Hijiri Kirishima – Voiced by Christine Auten - Kano’s older sister and only family, AND the town doctor. Hijiri is a very matter-of-fact and down to earth person. She adores her little sister and will do anything to protect her, but she doesn’t believe that anything supernatural could be happening. She’s also really scary when she’s wielding scalpels.
Michiru – Voiced by Serena Varghese - Loud. Energetic to the point of annoyance. And a thorn in Yukito’s side. That’s Michiru. Anything else about her is a mystery. She’s almost always with Minagi, a yang to her yin, though she seems some years younger. She really gets a kick out of attacking Yukito.
Potato – Voiced by Tiffany Grant - A very strange little stray dog. His vocabulary consists of “piko,” “pika,” and sometimes “pikorin.” Kano can somehow understand this. Yukito suspects he’s an alien.
Minagi’s Mother – Voiced by Kelly Manison - A nice woman who is seen around town on errands. She’s always talking about her daughter, but Minagi’s never with her. It seems like they have an odd relationship.
Keisuke Tachibana – Voiced by John Gremillion - A young man who actually gives Yukito something for his puppet show. Who is he and what part will he play in the story?
Girl A (Nayuki Minase)– Voiced by Jessica Boone - A classmate of Kano’s with blue hair. Our spies tell us she is a very heavy sleeper and loves animals, even though she’s allergic to cats.
Girl B (Ayu Tsukimiya)– Voiced by Brittney Karbowski - A classmate of Kano’s who wears a backpack with wings on it. We have it on good authority that she’s fond of taiyaki and says “Uguu” a lot.
Girl C (Makoto Sawatari)– Voiced by Tiffany Terrell - A classmate of Kano’s who has large red ribbons in her hair. We’ve heard through the grapevine that she’s mischievous and something of a prankster, but somewhat clueless about simple things.
First DVD for the US release is set for Aug. 14 so be sure to pick it up when it gets released.
kewl. i cant wait until the first DVD is released. hope the subs is good. as well as the dub.
i heard that ADV had to pay $57,000 dollars per episode to license the Air TV series. not the OVA or the movie, but the 14 episodes aired on TV in japan. is that true?
