On September 5, 2022, the staff for Osamu Nishi’s Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun (Mairimashita! Iruma-kun) manga revealed that voice actor Hiroki Yasumoto will play the role of Orobus Coco (also known as Orabus Coco in some translations) — a student attending Babyls Demon School and an antagonist during the Harvest Festival Arc.
Voice actor and narrator Hiroki Yasumoto is best known for his roles as Hozuki in Hozuki’s Coolheadedness, Yasutora Sado in BLEACH, and Germany in Hetalia: Axis Powers.
The Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 is set to premiere on October 8, 2022!
How is Orobus Coco involved in the Harvest Festival Arc?
During the Harvest Festival, Orobus Coco purposefully targets the students of the Misfit Class and at one point uses his unsettling Bloodline Magic “Trauma” to get Jazz disqualified. He does this under the orders of Ocho — a supporter of Baal’s movements in reclaiming the current system of the Demon World and supporting a “return to demonic origins.”
When Orobus Coco later uses his ability on Iruma and Clara, Alice steps in to defend them and ends up getting disqualified from the Harvest Festival. Despite his nefarious scheming during the Harvest Festival, Orobus still manages to raise his rank to Gimel (3) and gain 58,000 points.
Orobus Coco tends to rank 2nd on exams, which has started the rumor at Babyls that he belongs to a cult called Numeral 2. He doesn’t belong to the cult, however; it only serves to irritate him about the misunderstanding. Orobus is also ranked 2nd in practical skills and lectures, which makes Iruma consider him a rival.
When Orobus Coco uses his Bloodline Magic “Trauma” he forces people to see illusions of their greatest fears. Sometimes he can take the form of the person’s greatest fears, physically. However, if his victim has a strong will they can overcome the illusion.
Hiroki Yasumoto comments on playing Orobus Coco
Personally, I don’t dislike the number 2 in the way Orobus Coco does. When you stick the number “2” on something I think it looks cool. I plan to enjoy bringing Orbus Coco to life. I want to thank my fans for watching the upcoming season, which is sure to have some turbulent events! Please look forward to it.Hiroki Yasumoto commented at NHK
What is the Mairimashita! Iruma-kun S3 plot?
The Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 3 will begin with the End of Final Days Arc (End of Terminus Days Arc/End of Summer Vacation Arc). Afterward, the Special Tutor Training Arc begins. Due to the fact that everyone in the Misfit Class (Iruma and his classmates) has to meet the requirement of having a Demon Ranking of 4 to stay in the Royal One classroom, they must get stronger.
In order to accomplish this, each of them is assigned to a special group of staff from Babyls that will help nurture their abilities so they can get ready for the opportunity to raise their rank during the school’s Harvest Festival. Iruma discovers he has a talent for archery, which is something most demons don’t have the patience for. Meanwhile, Azz-kun trains to perfect his “Evil Cycle.”
The Harvest Festival Arc begins thereafter. After all their intense training, the Misfit Class feels ready to participate in the Harvest Festival where they must gather ingredients in a demonic jungle — the aim is to get the very best ingredients and gain the most points. The misfit class will have to survive by using their newfound and improved abilities. However, unexpected threats lurk in the demonic jungle and they’ll put their new skills to the test.
