Jailhouse Rock – FUNimation Announces Prison School English Dub Cast

Prison-School-Anime-Promotional-Image-01I’m sure the humour of an Elvis reference in the article title will be lost on many of you reading this but just know one thing…the warden will throw no parties at this jail. Another one, probably lost on many of you. That’s okay though, because it’s not the main point of this article, the main point of this article is that FUNimation have just revealed the cast and crew who have been working on the Prison School English dub which is set to premier tomorrow night in North America at 8:30/7:30pm CT.

I seem to be one of the only people I know who is actually watching Prison School which is fine because I’m not sure it’s a series I exactly want to take the time to dissect episode by episode like I usually do with a lot of other simulcasts. The story is simple: Five boys attending a school filled entirely by female students are sent to an on-campus prison for trying to perve on their lady classmates. This prison, run by some of the dangerously sexy women you’ll ever see in a modern Anime series, will be the home of these five boys for the next month…so long as they don’t try anything stupid and get themselves an extended sentence.

The closest thing you’re going to get to soft core domination porn, an oxymoron in and of itself, Prison School does indeed have it’s very own English dub, meaning that it’s simulcast has been popular enough to justify FUNimation spending more money getting an English dubbing crew in to localise the show. This can only mean there’s a whole bunch of Anime watchers who’re hooked to the show and just don’t enjoy telling anyone…and I can’t blame them.

With Sonny Strait as part of the main cast, I can’t help but imagine this is going to be one hell of a good English dub, but it’s not just him who’s doing all the work. No way! There’s a bunch of good, well…just read the list and see for yourself:

Austin Tindle  Kiyoshi
Eric Vale  Gakuto
Sonny Strait  Andre
Chris Bevins  Joe
Clifford Chapin  Shingo
Tia Ballard  Mari
Whitney Rodgers  Meiko
Alexis Tipton  Hana
Kristen McGuire  Chiyo
Smokey DeLange  Chairman
Sonny Strait  ADR Director
Jeremy Woods  Lead ADR Engineer
Patrick Morphy  Additional ADR Engineer


Looking pretty good, huh? Well you Anime fans living in North America have it pretty damn good right now because the streaming of this dub will only be made available to you all as of right now. Surely sooner or later AnimeLab will pick it up for Australians to view but until then we’ll have to live vicariously through you guys, just like I live vicariously through the cast of this super raunchy new series.


Let us know your thoughts!
