Yume Miyamoto as Nika Nanaura

Yume Miyamoto

I’m Yume Miyamoto and I’m in charge of Nika Nanaura’s voice. In fact, when I first saw the successive works of Gundam a few years ago, I was so excited that I had a big dream in mind: “I want to be able to participate in it one day.” At the time of the audition, I was moved to be accepted, but somehow I felt sympathy for Nika’s way of thinking, so when I heard that I had passed the audition, I was convinced of my destiny and I flew away. As a mechanic, she is a dedicated and reliable person who always supports everyone around her. In order not to lose the depth of his love, I will also work to create works with great love! Thanks.

Miyu Tomita

When I first saw Tutu at the audition, there was something that freaked me out, and I really wanted to play this girl! . Tutu’s words and deeds are tough and she seems like a tough kid to get around to, but she’s a very nice girl who cares about her friends. In order to bring out its charm to the fullest, we try to record every episode, so look forward to it!

Yohei Azakami as Guell Jetak

Youhei Azakami

I am truly honored to be able to participate as an MS pilot in the new TV anime series “Gundam”! Is not it ? We can only know the story until the script we receive every time. Rather than thinking about the future, I live my Guell life with all my might in the story unfolding before me!

Natsuki Hanae as Elan Keres

This was my second Gundam after “Iron-Blooded Orphans”, but I’m glad I got to pilot a mobile suit this time. The character I play, Elan, looks cute, and I think it’s good that he shows his knees. He’s an aloof person who doesn’t open his heart to anyone in the school, so when I play him, I talk so I’m not too aware of conversations with others. I’m interested in Sretta, but what kind of relationship will I build with her?

Makoto Furukawa as Shadyk Zeneri

Makoto Furukawa

I’m Makoto Furukawa, who plays Shadyk Zeneri. I’m very happy to be involved in a new way with “Gundam”, which I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid. The witch key word story with school elements will make you hooked every time you save it. I would appreciate if you could keep an eye out for what kind of role Shadiq will play in this story. Stay tuned for the broadcast.
