Funimation announced their plans for the English dub of Akiba’s Trip: The Animation, premiering January 4 6:00am PT/8:00am CT.

Based off the Akiba’s Trip video game series, the anime will receive a dubbed episode 30 minutes after the anime airs in Japan. This will be the quickest English launch that the studio has done this season.

However, since the studio is relatively new at this, they are unsure if there will be delays in the future. As of now at least, the studio is all set to launch and give fans one of the quickest dubs to date.

The studio shares the cast and crew:


  • Tamotsu Denkigai – Alejandro Saab
  • Matome Mayonaka – Jad Saxton
  • Arisa Ahokainen – Natalie Hoover
  • Niwaka Denkigai – Bryn Apprill


  • ADR Director – Clifford Chapin
  • Lead Engineer – William Dewell
  • Writer – Jared Hedges

Currently, the anime series has received a trailer, but as for the game series, Akiba’s Beat is set to launch in Q1 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
