On another note, there has also been more info on the web radio show. The title will be Shokoku no Altair ~Turkiye Housoukyoku~. Ayumu Murase, who voices Mahmut, and KENN (Kyuros) will be part of the program on the first show on 23 June 2017. After that, it will be aired on every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month.
Baraban (VA: Kazuya Nakai)
He is the 3rd generation sultan of the Mizrak Stratocracy. He is very aggressive, but possesses an excellent military talent. It makes him leading his own elite corps, the Yeniceri, much easier. He is not content with how the country is being led, as he worries about its future.
Bayezid (VA: Koki Uchiyama)
He is the younger brother of Baraban. He is the opposite of his brother and a very nice person. He has an ear for the wishes of the people in the port town of Turkiye. He respects his brother Baraban, but they split paths after a certain incident.
Ayşe (VA: Ai Kayano)
Ayşe is the daughter of Fatma and the niece of Baraban and Bayezid. She has been good friends with Bayezid since they were children. She has a strong will and has a talent to judge objectively, but sometimes she takes it too far with her boldness.
Orhan (VA: Nobunaga Shimazaki)
The son of Sultan Selim and Ayşe’s fiancé. He has a bright personality but cries easily, which makes Ayşe give him the nickname ‘crybaby’. He has little interest in the war and politics.
Ismail (VA: Nobuhiko Okamoto)
Ismail is the 45th son of Sultan Uzun. He is intelligent and sensitive and also the successor of Jin Shoukai. He employs a strong group of mercenaries called Orquestra and is talented in gathering information.
