The series follows the adventures of the Fairy Tail Guild in a world of Wizards (a broad term for magic-users). Funimation today announced the main cast for the series which includes some of their all-star voice actors, from works such as One Piece, Dragonball Z and Soul Eater, just to name a few.
The following actors have been tapped to play the following characters:
- Todd Haberkorn as Natsu Dragneel
- Tia Ballard as Happy
- Colleen Clinkenbeard as Erza Scarlet
- Cherami Leigh as Lucy Heartfillia
- Newton Pittman as Gray Fullbuster
- R. Bruce Elliot as Master Makarov

To promote the upcoming English dub release of the series, Todd Haberkorn, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Cherami Leigh and Newton Pittman will be making an appearance at New York Anime Festival and New York Comic-Con this October. So be sure to check them out if you are in the area this October.
It is as of writing still unknown when we will see a release of the series’ English dub. However with a cast as good as this, we can safely assume that it is in good hands, while we await it to be released.
