Action, aesthetics, and girls with guns are all right around the corner as Princess Principal prepares to air this month. And as a little teaser, the lead cast of the series has a few things to say after doing their voice work for the first episode.
Ayaka Imamura, the voice of Angel, was impressed by the quality of the animation. “The city backgrounds and the characters’ expressions are very nice… and since it’s a spy show, the action scenes were amazing!”
Akira Sekine, in the role of the Princess, promises to cherishes all her experiences working on the anime, while You Taichi (Dorothy) is thrilled that she was accepted to play a new type of role for her and was also enthusiastic about the animation. Akari Kageyama and Nozomi Furuki — Beatrice and Chise, respectively — are also extremely excited to be involved.
The series doesn’t premiere until July 9, but announcements have already been made concerning the first DVD/BD release. The first volume is expected to be available on September 27. The limited-edition BD will include the director’s episode 1 storyboards, as well as an unused scenario.
The DVD will retail for 6,000 yen, with the special edition BD selling for 7,000 yen.
