Writing, ADR staff also revealed


Just caught the 1st episode of the dub

-Monica Rial totally knocks it out of the park as Moa

-Brynn Apprill is ok as Cyan

-Caitlin Glass is decent as Retoree

-Alexis Tipton is really good as ChuChu

will continue to watch but wow Strawberry Heart / Grateful King was just so wrong. Probably should have done it a bit different imo. Oh well I’ll continue to watch the dub for the time being (I try to complete 1 per season, even if I’m watching it subbed.
