Yesterday I received an e-mail from a memeber of the Jessica Boone Yahoo Fan Group (yes, it's still active) that she landed the role of Kobako in Sentai Filmwork's upcoming release of Xam'd - Lost Memories
, which was confirmed by Janice Williams on the Mania.com forum. Even though she moved to Virginia a couple of yeas ago, she did mentioned that at the times she returns to Houston to visit family, she would hope to land some roles there again if given the opportunity. So with this being her first role in anime in over 2 years, I'm very psyched that she's back working on an anime project, even though it might be a temporary thing and that this Kobako character is probably a supporting character.
Of cousre with Jessica part of the English dub cast, this makes Xam'd - Lost Memories a must-by for me
. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing her performace on this show and how she handled the character of Kobako. Who knows, maybe if Sentai decide to invest in more English dubbing projects for their future licenses (or current ones - perhaps they might consider dubbing Clannad After Story possibly?) we might here more from her in the future.
