posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the television anime of Square Enix's Operation Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur (Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur) massively multi-player online role-playing game revealed the visuals and descriptions for the characters on Thursday.
Himika Akaneya as Nuckelavee, Danchō Arthur's support fairy. She has an honest and straightforward personality that seems to be popular with no-good adults. She looks after Danchō Arthur almost like her mother, to the point where Danchō Arthur might be completely dependent on her.
Tetsuya Kakihara as Tekken (Iron Fist) Arthur, a wielder of the gauntlet Excalibur. He is brash, reckless, headstrong, and persistent in the pursuit of any duty given to him. He is a hot-blooded man who values friendship and camaraderie.
Rie Takahashi as Titania, Tekken Arthur's support fairy. She carries herself with a dignity bordering on overconfidence, but she has a cuteness that cannot be denied. She is often critical of Tekken Arthur, but she thinks that his brashness and spontaneity make them a perfect pair.
Ayana Taketatsu as Yamaneko (Wildcat) Arthur, a wielder of the heavy weapons Excalibur. She tends to be stoic, and never talks about her past with anyone, but she is serious when it comes to the mission. She always has her guard up, so it can be difficult for her to deal with other people.
Nao Tōyama as Coopy, Yamaneko Arthur's support fairy. She acts like an airhead, but the act is actually calculated. She gets along fine with Yamaneko Arthur, but though she often finds that she has to take care of Yamaneko Arthur, she also sees her as a rival, possibly due to her desire to be seen as the cutest.
Natsuki Hanae as Kakka (Lord) Arthur, a wielder of the grimoire Excalibur. He acts haughty and condescending, but he is also highly intelligent. He tackles all things logically, but he still has a novice's lack of practical experience, and is unused to conflict.
Yū Serizawa as Brigitte, Kakka Arthur's support fairy. She speaks like an overeager underclassman. She is one of the few people in whose company Kakka Arthur can let his guard down. She sees Kakka Arthur as childish, troublesome, and unreliable, but she also enjoys watching him mature.
Inori Minase as Renkin (Alchemy) Arthur, a wielder of the hammer Excalibur. While she carries herself seriously, and quickly wants be an adult, she moves at her own pace, and is very clumsy. She is an orphan who travels to many places, working all kinds of part-time jobs. She is always trying to taking on grown-up tasks, to the point of often overextending herself.
Suzuko Mimori as Bodach, Renkin Arthur's support fairy. She is always confident, but often trips herself up in her clumsiness. She thinks very highly of Renkin Arthur's intelligence, and places great trust in her. While neither greatly intelligent or experienced, she is often judged to be smart, largely due to the influence of Renkin Arthur.
Yūichi Nakamura as Rurō (Wanderer) Arthur, a wielder of the dual pistol Excalibur. He has lived a varied life, and has thus become quite skilled. He has a smooth personality and always takes the long view on things. While he is often seen as uncaring toward his comrades, he has his own ways of showing that he cares.
Rina Hidaka as Bethor, Rurō Arthur's support fairy. She is extremely intelligent, and her remarks often come off as derogatory. However, she actually has a very fragile personality. In her own way, she worries about the future of Rurō Arthur, who often demonstrates a lack of consideration toward both himself and the world.
