Additional Voices


  • Many characters have temporary voice actors in Episode 2. According to several sources, much of the primary cast (Richard Newman, Matt Smith, Lalainia Lindbjerg and Jason Gray-Stanford) had head colds when recording of the episode, so the studio had to use temporary replacements to meet deadlines.
  • Discotek Media's release of the series was originally sub-only until 2021 due to legal entanglements with rights of the dub. However, the dub became available on streaming services such as RetroCrush and Tubi. The English dub was released on Blu-ray on December 28, 2021.[1][2]
