FUNimation Follow-up: Dragonaut Cast


As Len reported yesterday, the dub cast for FUNimation's release of Gonzo's Dragonaut -The Resonance- was announced at Anime Next yesterday, and I have a copy of the list sitting in my inbox as I type:


Some staff credits as well...

ADR Director- Zach Bolton
ADR Engineer- Peter Hawkinson

And here's FUNi's blurb on the series, in case you're not familiar.
In order to avoid Earth's impending destruction from an asteroid, the International Solarsystem Development Agency (ISDA) works on the "D-Project", and secretly creates weapons called “dragons “. However, they soon find out that the asteroid is not their only threat, as powerful dragon-like creatures appear on Earth. After witnessing a murder by one of the creatures, Jin Kamishina gets involved with the ISDA and becomes a dragon pilot, otherwise known as a "Dragonaut". Helping him on his journey is the mysterious Toa.
As I understand it, it's a pretty solid series, although it's clearly very Gonzo-esque (hello, boobs!). After the DFC-athon that is Strike Witches, that might not be such a terrible thing.

Actually, Dragonaut is kind of pretty terrible. Even breasts couldn't save this train-wreck of a show.

@Sigue: But, but... where will we get our mix of really obvious cg mechs alongside average quality animation?!?!

@Sigue: This. Times ten. Billion. What a piece of crap.

In the frozen circle of Hell dedicated to the people who thought it was a good idea.

Dragonauts' comparison to all different kinds of "steaming piles" has been the one consistent thing I've read on the internets. I almost, ALMOST want to drop the first volume in my Netflix just to see how crappy it is.

It wasn't THAT bad. Sure you have to grit your teeth against the pain of the horrible cg but... at least it has a colorful cast.
