M・A・O and Yoko Hikasa join the cast of the military magical girl series
Two more magical girls are reporting for duty!
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka has released character designs for the last two members of the Magical Five, the show's fighting force of military magical girls.
Lau Pei-Pei, a.k.a. Magical Girl Shuang Tou Long ☆ Pei-Pei, is adept at fighting with magical nunchaku. However, her skill has been untapped for the last three years, as she disappeared after the last battle with the Disas Beasts. She will be voiced by Yoko Hikasa (Mio Akiyama, K-ON!).
Tamara Volkova, a.k.a. Magical Girl Phoenix ☆ Tamara, is enlisted in the Russian military at the beginning of the series. A cool-headed fire magic user, she is known to break her facade when she sees something cute. She will be voiced by M・A・O (Shion, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime).
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka premieres in Japan on January 12.
