I've done dialog recording for quite a few animation projects for big studios.
A dual U87 (far/near) is the de facto standard.
Some of them specify Micpres like 1073 but our Amek Purepaths are easy winners.
I invested in Triad Orbit stands which make dual miking a breeze.
(although I had some issues with the wing nut breaking on me, the replacement seems to be OK)

You might also need a Timecode based logging system and a person who does the logging of the takes. Sessions are usually continuous recordings broken down to segments.
And yes, you will need a camera to record the actor.
