The additional cast includes:

Takayuki Sugō (Hell Girl's Wanyuudou, Mobile Suit Gundam UC's Cardeas Vist) as L, the leader of Control, the Commonwealth spy ring that has infiltrated Kingdom territory. He is a man of few words, and is always calm as he gives Angie's group their orders.
Miyuki Sawashiro (Galaxy Angel's Mint Blancmanche, Hunter × Hunter's Kurapika) as 7, an information and data analyst and interpreter. She is able to deal with unexpected events without letting her personal feelings get in the way.
Takumi Yamazaki (Mobile Fighter G Gundam's George de Sand, Gintama's Bansai Kawakami) as The Colonel, a military officer sent to oversee Control. He thinks highly of the military's direct power, and looks down on a spy's subversive methods.
Takaya Hashi (The Legend of the Galactic Heroes' Ernest Mecklinger, One Piece's Duke Inuarashi) as Duke Normandy, a duke appointed as the minister of the interior. He holds power within law enforcement circles, and is one of the few people that can offer his honest opinion on matters to the queen.
Yuko Iida (Witch Craft Works' Mei Menowa, Girls und Panzer der Film's Azumi) as Gazelle, Duke Normandy's secretary. Her beauty belies her ruthless devotion to her duty, which she carries out on her own initiative.
