The voice actors and directing team for the upcoming historical television anime series Kingdom have been announced. The announcement has been made in this week’s Young Jump, published by Shueisha. The new show will be an adaptation of the historical manga by Yasuhisa Hara.
Here is what was written in the magazine:
Masakazu Morita as Xin
Rie Kugimiya as Karyō Ten
Rikiya Koyama as Ou-Ki
Jun Fukuyama as Zheng
Youko Hikasa as Jiang Lei
Directing: Jun Kamiya (D.I.C.E., Blue Seed)
Script: Naruhisa Arakawa (Blue Seed, Elemental Gelade)
When I first started this site I was very familiar with Rie Kugimiya… but I had no idea she was such a machine! Every new show with females in it has her listed somewhere in the seiyuu list. I cannot say I am not pleased with what I hear when she is acting, though. Seems like being very active isn’t always such a bad thing. I mean, who would have guessed Eric Alphonse from Fullmetal Alchemist and Kagura are voiced by the same person?!
