Michelle Ruff joins cast as Sinon
Aniplex of America announced at its Katsucon panel on Saturday that Sword Art Online II will air on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block beginning on March 28 at 1:00 a.m. EST. The English dub cast from the first season will return, and Michelle Ruff (Bleach, Gurren Lagann) will join the cast as Sinon.
The first Sword Art Online series previously ran on Toonami starting in August, 2013.
Aniplex of America streamed Sword Art Online II on Daisuki and Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan beginning last July. The series adapts the third arc, Phantom Bullet, from Reki Kawahara’s original light novel series.
Toonami premiered Kill la Kill earlier this month, but the block’s run time was recently cut by several hours.
