  • Yōko Hikasa as Farnese
  • Kazuyuki Okitsu as Serpico
  • Hiro Shimono as Isidro
  • Hiroki Yasumoto as Azan
  • Toa Yukinari as Casca
  • Takahiro Sakurai as Griffith
  • Akio Ohtsuka as Skull Knight
  • Unshou Ishizuka as Narrator

Shin Itagaki (Basquash!, Ben-To, Teekyū) is directing the anime. Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, Ōsama-tachi no Viking, Yuruyuri San Hai!) is supervising the series scripts in collaboration with Takashi Yamashita (Cencoroll). Hisashi Abe (Pet Shop of Horrors, Gunslinger Girl, Chobits) is designing the characters. Shiro Sagisu (Berserk films, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Megazone 23) is composing the music. Liden Films is credited for production, while Gemba and Millepensee are credited for animation production.
