The character I play, Ed, bears many names and possesses as much karma as the number of names he has. I hope to express the path he has chosen to tread as an assassin accurately. The fantasy world of Orphen is filled with a vast amount of information and passion. As soon as you start reading the story you are drawn in. I plan to put my heart and soul into my performance so that I can deliver an even greater emotion than I felt when reading the original story. I want to thank the fans for their support.

The character I play, Lottecia, is a master swordswoman, who usually appears to be very calm, serious and mature. But there is a different side to her, a hidden side that makes her mysterious. Lottecia can be very emotional at times. What draws you into the story of Orphen is not only its unique characters but also the very realistic human situations and human-like emotions and behavior of each character despite the sword-and-sorcery world. I am very happy to get to play Lottecia in a work that has been popular and well loved for so long. I’m equal parts excited and nervous for the anime’s premiere. I would like to thank the fans for their support.
