‘I’m Quitting Heroing’ Gets An English Dub

‘I’m Quitting Heroing: Next Gig Is at the Demon Queen’s Castle’ was a 2017 three-volume light novel series that was released by Japanese publishing company Fujimi Shobo and illustrated by Hana Amano. The Tokyo-based Kadokawa Shoten developed a manga edition in 2018 that is illustrated by Nori Kazato. Its popularity led to a 2022 anime from EMT Squared animation studio directed by Yuu Nobuta and Hisashi Ishii with the abbreviated title ‘I’m Quitting Heroing.’ The show currently has only one season of twelve episodes and includes two OVAs.
As D-Rezzed previously reported, Sentai Filmworks had acquired the rights for a North American release of the anime to the HiDive streaming service, which recently announced an English voice cast.
According to their website, the cast will include:

  • Leo – Joe Daniels
  • Echidna – Olivia Swasey
  • Shutina – Luci Christian
  • Edvard – Andrew Love
  • Mernes – Patricia Duran
  • Lily – Christina Kelly
  • Eibrand – Scott Gibbs
  • King – Brandon Hearnsberger
  • Dianette – Brittany Karbowski

John Swasey will serve as the ADR director with Holly Segarra handling the ADR script.
You can watch the trailer for the anime below:

The character designs are done by Yuki Nakano with Kōhei Munemoto composing the music.
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows:
“After saving the world, the strongest hero Leo became someone who is not wanted in the peaceful human world. He was too strong. Exiled, he seeks a job at the Demon King’s Army, which he had defeated and needs to be rebuilt. The Army had many problems: too much work, financial troubles, etc. Leo starts to make things better using his power. Leo encounters Echidna again and asks her why she invaded the human world. There was an unexpected story.”
The author of ‘I’m Quitting Heroing: Next Gig Is at the Demon Queen’s Castle’ goes by the pseudonym Quantum and originally released it online through the Kakuyomu website. The English version of the manga is available digitally through Kadokawa’s BookWalker website.
