Haruka Terui, Jouji Nakata, more join cast

The official website for the Chaos Dragon television anime project announced more cast members on Thursday. The new cast members are all from Donatia, one of three countries central to the story.

  • Haruka Terui as Meryl
  • Jouji Nakata as the Black Dragon
  • Keiji Fujiwara as Simeon
  • Aimi as Ulrika
  • Haruo Satou as Enumael

The website also began streaming a new promotional video on Thursday. The video, narrated by Sōma Saitō as Soirot Clasbari, introduces himself and Donatia.

In the video, Soirot says that everything he's held since birth has crumbled because of the curse he has inherited. Donatia, the country where he was born and raised, once ruled half the world, but couldn't protect Nil Kamui. Nevertheless, it still has the best military in the world, so it will not rest. He also says that he dreams of finding something immortal, that cannot be destroyed. For that reason, he has made a contract with the Black Dragon and come to Nil Kamui.

The story takes place in the sparkling era year 3015, where the great nations Donatia and Kōran divide the world in a cold war as they fight for supremacy. In the middle of this standoff is island country Nil Kamui, which has lost its independence.

The main characters and cast members include:


Marina Inoue as Ibuki, a descendant of the royal family of Nil Kamui. Created by Simadoriru.



Miyuki Sawashiro as Eiha, Ibuki's guardian who is fused with a demon. Created by Izuki Kōgyoku.



Sōma Saitō as Soirot Clasbari, a member of Donatia's prized black dragon knights. Created by Kinoko Nasu.



Maaya Uchida as Rō Chenfa, an assassin from a religious organization in Kōran. Created by Gen Urobuchi.



Unshou Ishizuka as Kagraba, a mysterious immortal trader from the independent city of Haiga. Created by Ryohgo Narita.



Houchu Ohtsuka as the Red Dragon (one of only seven dragons in the world and the guardian diety of Nil Kamui)


Kenji Akabane as Fugaku, Ibuki's fellow disciple in kendō


Takuya Eguchi as Hien, a boy swordfighter. He lost a little sister who was like his other half, during the Seven-Year War.


Kouichi Yamadera as Agito, leader of the revolutionary army


Nozomi Furuki as Mashiro, a girl who was with Ibuki at an orphanage in Nil Kamui


Haruka Watanabe as Kai, who lived in an orphanage after losing both parents in the Seven-Year War between Nil Kamui and Kōran

Toru Ohkawa as Kurama (not pictured)

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX TV, KBS Kyoto, BS11, and Sun TV on July 2.

The project is based on Red Dragon, the "role-playing fiction" story born from the "table talk role-playing game" sessions by five prominent anime, game, and art creators. The five Red Dragon participants were Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero), Kinoko Nasu (Kara no Kyōkai - the Garden of sinners, Fate/stay night, Lunar Legend Tsukihime), Izuki Kōgyoku (Mimizuku to Yoru no Ō, Mama, Garden Lost), Simadoriru (illustrator), and Ryohgo Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!!). Each participant created a character to guide through six nights of tabletop role-playing game sessions devised by "fiction master" Makoto Sanda (Rental Magica, Record of Lodoss War).

The website Sai-zen-sen serialized the compiled transcripts of the Red Dragon role-playing sessions.

Also as part of the project, there is a board game titled Chaos Dragon: Haō Shunjū. The "story-telling game's" plot revolves around seven heroes (controlled by the players) who fight in an endless war. The smartphone game Chaos Dragon: Konton Senso (Chaos Dragon: Chaos War) is scheduled to begin service this summer for iOS and Android devices. Scenario-writers for the game include Carlo Zen, Yoichiro Koizumi, Ukyo Kodachi from Team Barrel Roll, Makoto Sanda, Ryohgo Narita, Jin Haganeya (Guilty Crown episode scripts), and Shunsaku Yano, among others. Participating illustrators include Cheese Gouda (Gundam Reconguista in G designs), Shimadoriru, sime, Take, Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King), Peach-Pit (Shugo Chara!), and minoa from nitroplus. Sakimoto is composing the game's music.

Masato Matsune (Fate/Prototype CG supervisor, Meganebu! opening storyboarder and animation director) is directing the television anime at SILVERLINK./CONNECT. Team Barrel Roll's Ukyō Kodachi (Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road, Macross Frontier novels) is in charge of the series scripts with assistance by Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, EUREKA SEVEN AO).

Inoue and Saitō will appear at an advance screening of the first three episodes and a talk show in Tokyo on June 20.
