New cast members and theme song performers revealed for upcoming adaptation of isekai fantasy light novel series
A new key visual (above), new cast members, and the theme song performers have been revealed for Maousama, Retry!, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of "mistaken identity" isekai fantasy light novels written by Kurone Kanzaki and illustrated by Makoto Iino about an ordinary dude who ends up playing the role of Demon Lord when he gets transported into the world of a popular video game.
The new cast members for Maousama, Retry! include:
Haruka Tomatsu as Killer Queen, the middle sister of the "Three Saints". As her name suggests, Killer Queen is imperious and violent, but there's also a side of her personality that awaits for a truly strong opponent to appear before her.
Aki Toyosaki as Angel White, the eldest sister of the "Three Saints". Angel White has the most common sense among her sisters, and although she's a worldly wise woman she is always swayed by her little sisters. With the advent of the Demon Lord Hakuto Kunai, she is very anxious about the safety of Luna and the future of her country.
Rina Satō as Yuu Kirino, one of Kunai's trusted assistants. Yuu is a brilliant doctor but also a mad scientist. In the world of "GAME" she displays a sadistic personality, and she's also a wildly enthusiastic fan of the game.
Additionally, the opening theme, entitled "TEMPEST", is performed by Kaori Ishihara. The ending theme, entitled "NEW" is performed by Haruka Tojo.
The story of Maousama, Retry! follows Akira Ohno, an ordinary working adult who finds himself zapped into a magical world after logging into the video game "GAME" while using the character name of "Maou Hakuto Kunai" ("Demon Lord Hakuto Kunai").
In the new world, Akira begins traveling with a young lady who is dealing with a disability that incapacitates one of her legs, but it becomes clear that Akira and his new companion can't conceal the overwhelming power of the Demon Lord, and they cause trouble wherever they go. Soon they are pursued by forces that want to destroy the Demon Lord, including a holy woman and an entire country, and a "mistaken identity" fantasy about an ordinary person with the appearance of a diabolical tyrant results.
The original Maousama, Retry! novels are published in Japan by Futabasha under their Monster Bunko imprint. The Maousama, Retry! TV anime is directed by Hiroshi Kimura and features animation production by EKACHI EPILKA. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and other stations beginning in July of 2019.
