Erica Mendez (Aladdin in Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic) plays Ryuko Matoi, a vagrant high school student who's looking for the person who killed her father. She comes face-to-face with the student council president of Honnouji Academy, Satsuki Kiryuin, played by Carrie Keranen (Mami Tomoe in Puella Magi Madoka Magica). Armed with only the scissor blade left from her father, Ryuko decides to go through Honnouji Academy to find answers and revenge. The rest of the cast is as follows:

  • Christine Marie Cabanos as Mako Mankanshoku (Also in Puella Magi Madoka Magica as Madoka Kaname)
  • David Vincent as Senketsu (Also in Bleach as Grimmjow Jeagerjaques)
  • Matthew Mercer as Aikuro Mikisugi (Also in Fate/Zero as Kiritsugu Emiya)
  • Sarah Williams as Nonon Jakuzure (Also in Puella Magi Madoka Magica as Sayaka Miki and in League of Legends as Jinx)
  • Patrick Seitz as Ira Gamagori (Also in Durarara!! as Simon Brezhnev)
  • Grant George as Uzu Sanegeyama (Also in Fate/Zero as Lancer)
