(English spelling of names may not be correct)


Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki Sakata in Gintama) as Dariel:

– “Thirties is still young. If adjusting the speed of walking is called laziness, this positive slow life is very fast and swift. Let’s loosen the tension and have a good laugh for both people and demons.” 




Akane Fugita (Sagiri Izumi in Eromanga Sensei) as Marika:

– “I’m Akane Fujita and will be playing the role of Marika. Marika is a girl who has all of motherhood, cuteness, and strength. All of them are due to her love, which is both sweet and a little scary (laugh). I would be happy if you like such Marika.”




Atsushi Abe (Toma Kamijo in A Certain Magical Index) as Bashbaza;

– “I’m Abe and I play the role of Bashbaza. He is the first of the Four Generals, but I played him because I thought he was cute in a slightly unfortunate way. I will do my best to express the feelings he has!” 




Tetsuya Kakihara (Natsu Dragneel in Fairy Tail) as Gashita: 

– “I am Kakihara, the voice of Gashita. He’s so cute, isn’t he? I wonder what kind of play I’ll be doing. I’ll do my best to help Aniki, Gashita!”




Rumi Ohkubo (Sharon Holygrail in Engage Kiss) as Zeviantes:

– “When I read the original novel, I thought of Zeviantes, ‘This girl looks really interesting to play!’ and I played freely a lot in the audition. So I was very happy when I got the call that I was accepted! There are many kind and funny people in this series, including Zevi-chan, which makes me laugh and feel happy. I hope we can enjoy watching Dariel-san solve and lead various things in an exhilarating way!”




Akari Kito (Nezuko Kamado in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) as Leddie:  

– “I’m Akari Kito, and I will be playing the role of Leddie! Leddie is a brave girl who is beautiful, strong, straight, and has a heart of justice, but she is kind of cute in a goofy sort of way! I will do my best to play her in the anime, so I hope you will enjoy her cuteness in the anime as well!”




Teaser visual:




Dariel, a dark soldier in the demon king’s army who cannot use magic, has risen to the position of assistant to the Four Generals with his talent and energy, and has been wielding his skill. However, as soon as the Four Generals are replaced, Dariel is fired from the army. Dariel is devastated, but when he arrives in a human village, he finds that his adventuring skills, which are supposed to be useless to demons, have blossomed! “I was… human?” Dariel decides to spend his second life in this village, and the requests start pouring in! Trouble! False charge! Duel! With his natural skills and the adjusting power that he developed in his old place, the former dark soldier solves them all!
