On the crew side, Mikala Vallemo is ADR Director, Kellen Voss is ADR Engineer, Rawly Pickens is Mix Engineer, Jeramey Kraatz is ADR Script Supervisor, and Jessica Cavanagh is ADR Script Writer.
FUNimation has Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! streaming on their site, and the English debut begins today, with the first episode available dubbed. The other nine episodes are available subtitled-only at the moment.
