“The draft is set and we’re ready to play ball with the official lineup for the ‘Tribe Nine’ English dub in the latest thrilling adventure from the mind of Kazutaka Kodaka (Danganronpa, Akudama Drive),” Funimation said on their website. “Heading up the Minato Tribe is Jacob Hopkins (To Your Eternity) as Shun Kamiya, who’ll be running the bases alongside Casey Mongillo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure STONE OCEAN) as Haru Shirokane, Phillip Sacramento as Taiga, Brittney Karbowski (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) as Saori Arisugawa, Kevin D. Thelwell (MEGALOBOX) as Santaro Mita, Brendan Blaber (Combatants Will Be Dispatched!) as Manami Daimon and Joshua Waters (Ishida and Asakura) as quadruplets Ichiro/Jiro/Saburo/Shiro.”

Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows:
“Tribe Nine takes place in a dystopian future (“The Year 20XX”) where disorganized youths form their own Tribes that soon turn violent and run rampant across the city of Neo-Tokyo. To contain the violence, the government of Neo-Tokyo implements the “XB Law,” stating that all future conflicts between Tribes will be settled through games of “Extreme Baseball,” overseen by robotic umpires. The games are similar to baseball except there are fewer restrictions on equipment, the “field” can be as big as an entire ward, and the only ways to get an Out require striking out the batter or knocking out a baserunner while holding the ball. Games can also end if the opposing pitcher is rendered unconscious during the game.”
Marissa Lenti will serve as the ADR Director with Mike Haimoto serving as Assistant ADR Director.
