The new cast member is the talented Akira Ishida, who will play the role of Guy Crimson, one of the Primordials. If you’re unfamiliar with Ishida’s work, he has lent his voice to several popular anime series such as Naruto (as Gaara), Neon Genesis Evangelion (as Kaworu Nagisa), and Gintama (as Kotaro Katsura and Sogo Okita).
For the theme songs, MindaRyn is contributing her second single, “Like Flames”, as the season’s second opening theme song. The single will launch on August 25. After contributing two opening theme songs to the first season, Takuma Terashima is performing the second season’s second ending theme song, “Reincarnate”.
