In execution, though, the English dub effort is merely a serviceable one. Bryce Papenbrook unsurprisingly bags the lead role, and he should have been just fine in it, but the way he handles Staz's attitudes never fully clicks.

As a “Netflix Original Series” (and at the time of this writing that is the only place it can be accessed), SDS sports an English dub courtesy of Bang Zoom! Entertainment. Unless you're tired of hearing Bryce Papenbrook as the male lead in seemingly everything these days (he's become in the 2010s what Johnny Yong Bosch was earlier in the 2000s), the English cast is very well-chosen.
