‘She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man’ is a 2012 isekai novel series written by Hirotsugu Ryusen that led to a manga version by Micro Magazine and illustrated by Fuzichoco with Seven Seas Entertainment licensing an English translation in 2016. Studio A-Cat released an anime adaption in January 2022 with Keitaro Motonaga directing and Takamitsu Kouno handling the writing duties. Funimation recently announced that they had acquired the licensing to produce an English dub.
“Are you ready for the first SimulDub™ announcement of 2022? We’re excited to announce that, starting today, the She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man English dub will be released simultaneously with the Japanese version,” Funimation said on their website. “Working that magic behind the scenes is the fantastic cast and crew, including Felecia Angelle (The Quintessential Quintuplets) as Mira and Mick Wingert (MARS RED) as her previous in-game counterpart Danblf.”
The rest of the cast includes Stephanie Young as the Narrator, Kristen McGuire as Amalette, Jacob Browning as Cleos, Brianna Roberts as Lythalia, Xanthe Huynh as Marianna, and Brandon McInnis as Solomon.
They also released an image to celebrate the SimulDub:

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows:
“Sakimori Kagami plays a VRMMORPG called Arch Earth Online. He is a veteran player with the name and appearance similar to an elderly bearded wizard from a certain book about a ring.
One day he purchases an appearance change item as a last resort to spend expiring currency and gets the idea of choosing what he would want to look like if his character was ever a girl.
Falling asleep should have suspended the game, but Kagami wakes up still online and feels the game has gotten a bit more realistic. Did Arch Earth Online finally get a long-awaited update?”
Tia Ballard will serve as the ADR Director with Matt Shipman working as ADR Scriptwriter.
