You might’ve noticed an Ojiro Otori-shaped hole in the Tribe Nine English dub cast list we shared last week, and that’s because we’ve been saving this home-run casting to really run the bases…
Viral sensation Corpse Husband, renowned for his pop culture-infused music and bedrock-deep tones, will be making his anime voice acting debut as the aptly designed antagonist of Kazutaka Kodaka’s (Danganronpa, Akudama Drive) latest high-octane thriller, Tribe Nine!
He joins an all-star lineup of co-stars, including Casey Mongillo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure STONE OCEAN) as Haru Shirokane, Jacob Hopkins (To Your Eternity) as Shun Kamiya, Phillip Sacramento as Taiga, Brittney Karbowski (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) as Saori Arisugawa, and more listed in the official announcement here.
From studio LIDENFILMS (Tokyo Revengers), Tribe Nine is directed by Yū Aoki (BEAN BANDIT), with series composition by Michiko Yokote (Heaven’s Design Team) and character designs by Rui Komatsuzaki (Akudama Drive) and Simadoriru (Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia), adapted for animation by Yosuke Yabumoto (Duel Masters!).
