Ryota Osaka (Nariyuki Yuiga in We Never Learn: BOKUBEN) voices Noir:
Noir is the third son from a family of minor nobles. Olivia gives him some of the world's most powerful skills of 'Create', 'Grant', and 'Edit'. He also possesses the 'Great Sage' that allows him to gain all kinds of knowledge, but with an intense headache as a toll. Noir is a bit stupid at times but also has a serious and careful personality.
Miyu Tomita (Rizu Ogata in We Never Learn: BOKUBEN) voices Emma:
Emma is the daughter of a baroness and a childhood friend to Noir. Her specialty is using a dagger during melee combat. She treats everyone around her equally with a kind heart. Because of her looks and voluptuous body, Emma is very popular with the opposite gender. Emma gets irritated because Noir doesn't notice she has feelings for him.
Rumi Okubo (Chinatsu Yoshikawa in YuruYuri) voices Lola:
Lola is the gorgeous receptionist at the adventurer's guild Odin. As the person in charge of Noir, she arranges various quests for him to go on but secretly hopes to become his wife. Despite her calm demeanor, Lola has a competitive streak and considers Emma, who is close to Noir, to be her rival.
Yui Horie (Felix in Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) voices Olivia:
Olivia was a top-tier adventurer who worked 200 years ago. She became trapped in a labyrinth by a curse after discovering a hidden dungeon. She communicated with Noir through telepathy and became his master by giving him the world's most powerful skills. Olivia has the personality of a mischievous older sister with a light-hearted attitude.
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the web novel and the manga of The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter for an English speaking audience, with the first volume of the light novel to be released on October 13, and the manga, adapted by Tomoyuki Hino, on November 3. They describe the series as such:
Noir is the son of a minor noble with very little to his name other than a job offer--which is canceled before he can even start his first day. He does possess one rare trait, though: the magical ability to consult with a great sage, even if using the skill gives him terrible headaches! Unsure of what his future holds, he accesses the sage for advice on how to move forward and is directed to a secret dungeon filled with rare beasts and magical items. It is here that Noir will train, compiling experience and wealth, until he's powerful enough to change his fate.
The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter premieres in Japan in January 2021, with Crunchyroll streaming the TV anime soon after.
