posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Studio Gokumi's original television anime Endro~! began streaming its fifth character promotional video on Friday.
The video introduces two new characters:
Misaki Kuno as Mao, a rookie teacher who teaches at the "Adventurer School" that Yūsha and her friends attend. She's mature but because she looks so young the students treat her like the school's cute mascot.
Momo Asakura as Princess Rona (Rona Pricipa O Rabanesta, spelling not confirmed). Rona is the princess of Rabanesta, the only kingdom on Naral Island. Her favorite book is "Tales of Heroes," and she loves the existence of heroes. She is usually calm, but exhibits unusual behavior when heroes are concerned.
Previously revealed cast members include:
Shiina Natsukawa as Seyla (Elnowar Seylan, spelling not confirmed). Seyla is a very serious young woman and serves as the party's straight man. She is a holy elf and is good at taking care of others, but is bad at housework. She has bad eyesight but does not wear glasses, and cannot use a bow.
Hikaru Akao as Yūsha (Yūria Shardet, spelling not confirmed). She is a bit of an airhead and was blessed with good intuition and good luck. She does not have much common sense, and often goes into other people's houses to search for items. Yūsha's name is a wordplay on the Japanese word for "brave."
Ari Ozawa as Fai (Fai Fai, spelling not confirmed). Fai is a warrior who is naive and energetic, and loves food and her friends. She has a habit of going berserk and attacking her friends by gnawing on them when her hunger reaches its limit.
Inori Minase as Mei (Meiza Endust, spelling not confirmed). Mei is a quiet magician who is usually expressionless. When it comes to the mysterious item "Caltard," she becomes really passionate.
The anime will premiere in January.
Kaori (Yuyushiki, How to keep a mummy) is directing the "everyday fantasy" anime. Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Love Lab, Himouto! Umaru-chan) is in charge of series composition. Namori (Yuruyuri) is the original character designer, and Haruko Iizuka (Sisters of Wellber, Tamayura, Children of the Whales) is adapting the original character designs for animation.
Izumi Minami launched a manga adaptation of the project on Hobby Japan's Comic Fire website in August. The project is also getting a figure from Amakuni, designed by Grizzry Panda.
