‘SSSS.Dynazenon’ is a sequel to 2018’s ‘SSSS.Gridman’ and the second installment in the shared Gridman Universe. The anime was developed by the Japanese production studio Trigger and will now receive an English dub voice cast.
“Get ready to suit up for some mecha vs. kaiju action, because the SSSS.DYNAZENON English dub is officially coming to Funimation,” the studio reported in a press release. “Starting July 9, you’ll be able to catch the first two episodes of the SSSS.DYNAZENON English dub right here on Funimation. The latest from studio TRIGGER is a stunner, so if you haven’t jumped in yet, now’s the perfect time!”
“And the cast for this one is stacked,” Funimation adds.
Dallas Reid (Black Clover) will voice series protagonist Yomogi. Aaron Campbell (Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun) will perform Gauma and Kristen McGuire (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) will voice Yume. Jason Liebrecht, Aaron Campbell, Megan Shipman, Y. Chang, David Matranga, Kara Edwards, Lee George, Elizabeth Maxwell, Emily Neves, Zach Bolton, Mark Allen Jr., and AmaLee round out the rest of the cast.
McGuire expressed her excitement on social media, saying, “You can hear me sing in episode 1 of (SSSS.Dynazenon). I’m actually very self conscious about my singing, so this was really scary for me. I practiced the song a lot before this scene because I wanted it to be perfect.”

The official synopsis says, “The appearance of a kaiju followed by the entry of the gigantic robot, Dynazenon, leads Gauma to reveal his secret of being a ‘kaiju user.'”
The plot continues, “Yomogi Asanaka is just an ordinary high school boy when he encounters a young man named Gauma, who claims he is a “Kaiju User”. When the city is attacked by a kaiju, Gauma summons the giant robot Dynazenon to battle it. Yomogi, his classmate Yume Minami, and local NEET Koyomi Yamanaka are caught up in the battle and end up becoming Gauma’s copilots for Dynazenon. Together, they must uncover and put a stop to whatever is behind the kaiju attacks.”
