Three more voice actors have joined the cast of the Japanese dubbed adaptation of Heaven Official's Blessing (known in China as Tiān Guān Cì Fú), a Chinese animated TV series based on the fantasy novel of the same name by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu about a human prince who ascends to godhood only to be viewed as a deity of misfortune by his former worshippers and his fellow divine beings. The new cast members include:
- Junichi Suwabe as Pei Ming.
- Toshiki Masuda as Pei Su.
- And Kana Hanazawa as Banyue.
Funimation describes the story of Heaven Official's Blessing as follows:
Xie Lian, the crown prince of Xian Le Kingdom, successfully ascends to Heaven during his third trial in spite of successive demotions. However, he accidentally breaks the Gold Palace of heavenly officials. With no human worshiping him, Xie Lian has to descend to the secular world to exorcise ghosts, which may help him sustain his divinity.
Heaven Official's Blessing is directed by Li Haoling and features animation production by Haoliners Animation League. The series originally streamed in China on bilibili in October of 2021, and it is also available via streaming in the United States via Funimation. Heaven Official's Blessing will broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX and BS11 beginning on July 04, 2021.
