Gilded Edge:  Book of Bantorra's English Dub Premieres Online

Posted by: Rai | May 4, 2012






May is finally here, and with it come a slew of special releases here on Anime Network Online.  Aside from the great new shows we've got coming up, we've also got the premiere of the English dubbed version of Book of Bantorra.  Along with that we've got one more surprise release that I'm sure most of you saw coming if you paid close attention to the last blog!

Read or...Yeah

Book of Bantorra has arrived here on the site, with a fabulous new English dub.  Among some of the talent you'll hear in the show are Shelly Callene Black, The Ayres brothers (Chris and Greg), Tiffany Grant and more!  Check the Book of Bantorra thread here for the full cast list!

Book of Bantorra

When a person dies, the soul departs from its body and is crystallized into a book. Written in that book are all the memories of that soul’s life. For anyone who touches that book, the dead person’s past can be relived…. It is in the Library of Bantorra, run by an elite organization known as the Armed Librarians, that all excavated books are stored. Under the direction of Acting Chief Librarian Hamutz Meseta, all Armed Librarians possess an extraordinary combination of encyclopedic knowledge and fighting skill. For this reason, the Armed Librarians are the most difficult profession to enter in the world. But will they be good enough to stop the fanatics of the Shindeki Church from exacting vengeance on the entire world? Only time will tell, but that book hasn’t been written yet. Don’t miss the non-stop action of The Book of Bantorra!


Episode 1 of Book of Bantorra - Bombs, Books and Sinking Ships is now available online English dubbed, in HD, and completely free! Enjoy!


Bam! Pow! :3

...yep.  The last of our special releases will be Upotte!, and this one couldn't be anymore special.  Girls with guns?  Yeah, that's been done to death...but girls who ARE guns?  There's something new!  Don't forget to catch the first episode here on Anime Network Online May 8!


Kiss kiss, bang bang! The arms race takes on a startling new development when the arms come with heads, legs and very feminine bodies attached! It’s going to be difficult for newly recruited human instructor Genkoku to adjust to working with a living arsenal of high caliber cuties with tricky names like FNC (Funko,) M 16A4 (Sixteen,) L85A1 (El,) and SG 550 (Sig,) especially since many have hair triggers and there’s no bulletproof vest that can stop a really determined coed! Get ready for explosive situations, armor piercing rounds, cheap shots galore and one VERY shell shocked homeroom instructor in UPOTTE!


Starts: May 9, Wednesdays at 4 PM EST

Language: Japanese w/ English subtitles
