The Garo Project website recently revealed the character names and descriptions for the upcoming GARO anime slated for September.
The official character descriptions and their voice actors are as follows:
Leon Lewis (Daisuke Namikawa; Gatchaman: Crowds, Fairy Tail, Fate/Zero)
A youth entrusted with the title of Golden Knight Garo. His mother, the Makai Priestess Anna was burned to death, and due to this terrible memory, his armor can go berserk and engulf him into flames.
Herman Lewis (Kenyu Horiuchi; Cowboy Bebop, One Piece)
Entrusted with the title of Makai Knight Zoro. He saved a just born Leon and escaped to raise him as a knight. Irresponsible and uninhibited, loves women.
Alfonso San Valiante (Katsuhito Nomura; CODE-E)
Prince of the Valiante kingdom. He had to flee his own country along with his mother due to Mendoza’s plot. He’s traveling in search of the legendary hero, the Knight of Light to save his country.
Emma Guzman (Romi Park; Full Metal Alchemist, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger)
