■Let’s introduce the cast members’ comments.
Otsuka Hochu (Rob)
He is a gentleman.
He seems to be a man with a shady history in the past, but I guess that it isn’t the case.
He may seem to be a suspicious man with a terrible scheme in his mind, but I guess it isn’t the case.
He just loves protecting and taking care of the Duke of Death.
I like such a character. (laugh)
He is sexy and makes me impatient, but I would like to watch over the pure relationship between the duke and Alice from afar.
Minase Inori (Viola)
She loves him, but cannot reach him.
This work depicts a bittersweet love story.
I always get butterflies whenever I see the Duke and Alice trying to make sure the feeling each other although he is always tossed about by her.
Viola, who I play, is so daring a character that she never minds cutting in.
Please enjoy Viola making funny faces!
Kuramochi Wakana (Caph)
I am Kuramochi Wakan, and will play the role of Caph.
I felt “The Duke of Death and His Maid” features a lot of beautiful things such as being considerate of others, protecting loved ones, family, and friends, when I read the original comic.
I will try my best to play Caph-chan, who is honest and affectionate but sometimes cool. Thank you for your continued support!
Kamiya Hiroshi (Zain)
I was selected as a cast to play Zain, and I binge-read the original comic！
I felt refreshed to see the duke and Alice’s pureness.
The original story by Inoue-sensei and image by Yamakawa perfectly match, clearly and obscurely reproducing the original world-view, which is dark but beautifully pure with digital technique.
Please look forward to the anime adaptation of “The Duke of Death and His Maid”!
Uchida Yuma (Walter)
I am Uchida Yuma, and will play the role of Walter. This work features a sentimental duke and funny maid. The story makes me laugh but makes me feel somewhat painful at the same time, which will be the charm of this work.
I am excited to see how the anime adaptation develops. Please watch “The Duke of Death and His Maid “.
