Ichiya Suzaku (朱雀壱弥), Head of Tokyo City. Voiced by Soma Saito
Stony-eyed, self-respectful Ichiya condescends upon others especially those stupid useless types. He secretively aspires to become a hero one day. He detests Kasumi Chigusa. His special ability is gravitation manupiration using his guntlet.
Soma Saito’s comments
I’m exstatic to land on the characters and show that I’ve been longing to get involved! I will do my best. Thank you!
Canaria Utara (宇多良カナリア), Subhead of Tokyo City. Voiced by Yui Ishikawa
Canaria calls her self “Ichiya’s care taker.” She’s a pushover; she tends to achieve more than she can handle. Her motto is “smile when you are in tight spot.” Her special ability is revitalization by singing.
Yui Ishikawa’s comments
I came to the audition with full intension to land on Canaria’s voice job! I’m so excited. I’m going to give all I got!
Maihime Tenkawa (天河舞姫), Head of Kanagawa City. Voiced by Aoi Yuki
Nicknamed “Hime (ヒメ, or princess)”, she is a proud queen who reigns the City of Kanagawa for a long period of time. She is an idealist and unpretentious. She has a tendency to act spontaneously, and swears by Taiken (大剣) – a gigantic canon that slaughters everything in one shot. She also has an extraordinary arm power.
Aoi Yuki’s comments
I felt really happy when I was awarded with the job. She’s the female leader, young and pretty. I want to commit to perform a strong and gorgeous Maihime!
Hotaru Rindo (凛堂ほたる), Subhead of Kanagawa City. Voiced by Ayaka Fukuhara
Calm, collected, but not so much, when it comes to taking care of the princess. Hotaru has unusual observation skills and excels at reading the enemy’s next step. She’s even more skilled to observe the princess. Her weapon is a sword. Her special ability is visual contact.
Ayaka Fukuhara’s comments
When I received the result of the audition, I was so psyched that I went out of the house to run through the town! Hotaru gives me an impression of a warrior, I love her solemnity. I’m going to give my best to perform her personality.
Asuha Chigusa (千種明日葉), Head of Chiba City. Voiced by Chika Anzai
Asuha is Kasumi’s younger sister. She may look like a typical weary teenager, but once she puts her hand on a gun, she is quite trigger-happy. She’s into fashion, especially, she never forgets to add a tweak to details. Her weapon is dual guns. Her special ability is an object movement control.
Chika Anzai’s comments
I’m really excited as I learned how unique and engaging the story, environment, and characters all are. Amongst all the characters, I’ve been particularly intrigued by Asuha. So, when I heard the news that I got that job, I danced like crazy together with my manager. I swear that I will give it all I got to live this story together with Asuha.
Kasumi Chigasa (千種霞), Subhead of Chiba City. Voiced by Yuma Uchida
Kasumi is cynical and realistic. He obviously doesn’t care how terrible his behavior might get interpreted by others. Only his sister understands his true self. His weapon is a sniper rifle, and his special ability is a search system using ecolocation.
Yuma Uchida’s comments
The brother of the Chigusa siblings, huh! I’m pretty psyched to play the interactions between brother and sister. Keep an eye out for what comes out from the unique personality of appealing characters !
