Here’s what Chief Operating Officer for Funimation Global Group, Rahul Purini, had to say:
Funimation is dedicated to serving anime fans wherever, and however they want, and that includes our audience who prefers Spanish. The stories and themes that anime conveys are universal, and Funimation knows that Hispanic and Latino audiences love their anime. The addition to our content library is just one of the ways we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
Here’s what Anairis Quinones, aka the voice of best girls (it’s true), had to say:
I am SO SO excited that the Latin anime community can experience their favorite shows dubbed in Spanish. Our community has loved anime for the longest time and is a huge supporter of anime. I’m happy that the industry can give back with more opportunities to experience anime and even be a part of it! Keep an eye out for My Hero Academia‘s Spanish dub! ¡¡Plus ultra!!”
And lastly, here’s what Emily Fajardo, voice of Eua in Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU, had to say:
Growing up watching English dubs of anime, it was rare to see any Latino voice actors in the credits, let alone Latino voice directors. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to direct and act in dubs and to help make anime more accessible to people from all different backgrounds.
