Character description:Princess of the Llinger Kingdom. A sophisticated and elegant lady is capable of making delicate and thoughtful gestures.Reina Ueda’s comments:“Is this what healing magic feels like…!? While in a daze, I approached the recording session with excitement in an extremely passionate atmosphere. Celia is a very pure girl. Not only as a princess but also as a “maiden”, her expressions are very charming, so I hope you will enjoy paying attention to that aspect as well!”
Character description:A knight of the Llinger Kingdom. Although he often works as a gatekeeper, he is proficient in both swordsmanship and magic, possessing solid skills.Comment by Shohei Komatsu:I am Shohei Komatsu and I will play the role of Aruku. He is an honest soldier who specializes in protecting castles, often working as a gatekeeper. What’s surprising is that he’s quite capable. Please count on me to support Lord Usato. Although there is a character named Alec in the Rescuers, I had no direct interaction with him. Please be aware of that. I was very careful not to make mistakes when reading the script. So, in preparation for the anime broadcast… Open the gate!
Character description:Commander of the third army of the Demon Lord’s army. She has a high sense of responsibility and is devoted to the Demon Lord. She has a significant connection to Rose.Comment by Hitomi Ueda:I will be participating as Amila in Misguided Uses of Healing Magic. My name is Hitosmi Ueda. She aligned herself with the Demon Lord’s army, which opposed the Llinger Kingdom where Usato and the others were summoned. While I was cautious about making her presence too familiar by talking too much, before the performance, Sound Director Imaizumi told me, “She has a strong will.” Be strong, try your best and be a serious person.” While describing her, I fell in love with Amila. I hope you look forward to how the Demon Lord’s army will participate. I will be happy if you can enjoy the anime broadcast! Thank!
Character description:A researcher affiliated with the Demon Lord’s army, creates magical beasts to use as weapons in war. Comment by Wataru Hatano:I will play the cunning and calculating Hyriluk. I am one of the Demon Lord’s subordinates. My teammate Amila is quite serious so we make an odd pair. Please look forward to our witty interactions!
Character description:A demon belonging to the Demon Lord’s second legion, currently serving under the command of the third legion, Amila. Known as an invincible dark magician, the name “Black Knight” comes from their appearance.
