    About KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!

    The series aired adaptation by Studio Deen aired in Japan between January and March 2016 and this is a full fandub casting call for it. If you don’t know what I’m on about, you can read more about it here: http://myanimelist.net/anime/30831/K...i_Shukufuku_wo


    Dead line is 30 June, 2016


    *PLEASE audition for different characters. Even if you have your heart set one particular character, try and audition for as many as you can. I am looking to try and cast as many people that audition so that nobody feels left out. Plus, this is really comedic and lively bunch of characters so there's a lot of fun to be had here.


    * IMPORTANT! If you want to audition, that’s fine, but I was serious about the full series dub thing. I am well aware that full fandubs hardly ever get off the ground, but if you need testimony that I am not of those people, you can check out my other FULL fandub which is ongoing even as we speak. As well as the quality if you are worried about that. If you’re auditioning for a main character, please make sure you’re prepared for a long-term commitment. The series contains 10 episodes.


    DON'T AUDITION IF YOU'RE NOT PREPARED TO FINISH IT!


    I know this is long and the schedule will be adjusted so that there is enough time to do other projects and to help prevent fatigue and boredom setting in. Those who have worked with me in the past know that we also take our time to achieve the very best quality and we don’t mind taking longer than usual, but we still aim to get it done regardless. No doing something half way. Unfortunately, if we cannot cast everyone and properly (again not settling for second best), then the project might not get off the ground.


    PLOT

    Ever dreamed of finding yourself as the destined hero of a JRPG-style world? KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World has fun showing you why that might not be as fantastic as you’d think—and to great comedic effect. At first, KonoSuba seems like every other anime in the popular subgenre of “Otaku protagonist transported to a fantasy JRPG world.” Kazuma, your average otaku, dies heroically saving a girl while on the way to buy a new video game. In the afterlife, he meets Aqua, a goddess who offers to let him be reincarnated in an RPG fantasy world. And he can even bring any one object with him into the fantasy world as a bonus.

    Then comes the twist. Mocking him, Aqua explains he didn’t die heroically: He died of a heart attack and the girl was actually in no danger at all. In fact, Aqua just wishes he would hurry up and choose so she can move on to her next client. More than a little pissed, Kazuma chooses his “any one object”: Aqua herself.


    One would think that having a goddess on your side would be a surefire route to success in an RPG world, but as Kazuma is quick to find out, Aqua was a terrible choice. While a gifted healer full of holy magic, she isn’t particularly smart. Rather, she is egotistical, selfish, greedy, lazy, and gives no forethought to the future. Soon they are joined by two more party members—those with stats that look great on paper but has glaring eccentricities that make them all but shunned by the other guilds in the starting town.


    The first is Megumin, an arch-wizard specializing in the world’s most powerful magic: explosion magic. Unfortunately, she refuses to cast any other kind of magic. So with her low level (and thus low mana pool) even casting a single spell is enough to leave her temporarily immobile and unable to cast again for the rest of the day. The second is Darkness, a crusader who is eager to take the hit for any party member in battle—though not because of loyalty. Rather, Darkness is an extreme masochist who derives great pleasure from being hurt in battle. Moreover, as a swordsman she is terrible and is practically incapable of hitting her target.


    Kazuma’s role in the party is that of the straight man. He constantly makes derisive comments about his party’s quirks or the cliché nature of the world around him. That said, he forms an obvious kinship with the three girls. As Kazuma so correctly laments, alone the three girls range from useless to stupidly inept. But together, they actually make a well-rounded team.


    Audition requirements

    Can be sent (if your BTVA isn’t working or such) to [redacted].

    Please make sure the auditions are .mp3 or .wav format

    Please save the lines as "charactername_yourname_linenumber.mp3" (ex: tamtu_vaan_01.mp3).


    When you audition, try to send in multiple takes playing with different voices. This is optional, but as with the lottery, playing more increases your odds of winning in the end.

    Note that there are more than just two audition lines for some characters. If you decide to audition for them, please record ALL the audition lines as I selected them to show different moods of the characters and this will make casting much easier.

    You can zip your files if you like.


    Mic Quality: Good quality - and fully functioning. No static, background noise or clutter.

    If you want your name associated with this project, give a name to add to the credits or not if you’re shy or embarrassed. A pseudonym will do too.


    Also, if you are available for extra voices, you know the one-liner characters who only pop up like once every six episodes, let me know as we could always use more of those. There are audition lines for them as well below.
