The anime's protagonist is named Galo (seen with blue hair in image above), who is a new recruit in a rescue team. The anime will have mechs called "Matoi-Tech," named after the "matoi" banners that Edo-period firefighting units used.
Ken'ichi Matsuyama as Galo Thymos, a new member of the Burning Rescue team. He's still in his teens but has more attitude than anyone. He is a reckless meathead who runs headlong to the scene of a fire.
Taichi Saotome as Lio Fotia, the leader of Mad Burnish. Lio seems like someone who keeps their cool, but it's actually the opposite. Lio aims to burn everything with the power of a special flame called "Burnish Flare."
Masato Sakai as Kray Foresight, the administrator of the Independent Republic of Promepolis and chief director of the Foresight Foundation. He used to research fireproof building materials, but successfully developed an instant-freeze bullet that can put out a Burnish fire. Galo looks up to him.
Ayane Sakura as Aina Ardebit, a member of Burning Rescue who, like Galo, is in her teens. She is cool, calm, and professional at all times, and does things at her own pace. She plays the straight man to Galo and Varys.
Hiroyuki Yoshino as Remi Puguna, the vice-captain of Burning Rescue. He's a good-looking guy in his 20s, and he is as smart as he looks. He is an indispensable adviser to the captain Ignis.
Tetsu Inada as Varys Truss, a member of Burning Rescue, in charge of heavy machinery. He's a muscular guy in his 30s, and he's always training his body. He partners with the diminutive Lucia when out on a job.
Mayumi Shintani as Lucia Fex, a small mechanic at Burning Rescue. She handles the development and maintenance of Burning Rescue's equipment. She also constructed Galo's Matoi.
Rikiya Koyama as Ignis Ex, the captain of Burning Rescue, in his 30s. On missions he makes wise decisions and leads the other members. He trusts his team and they trust him.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Master Menos: Dream: I've always been a PC guy anyways. (Yeah, that was funny!)

Master Menos: Sidebar updated! Taka: My turn to scratch your back, Taka. 2019 me got really messed up with the job. @_@
Jan 8, 2020 4:53:59 GMT
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...
Jan 19, 2020 22:49:15 GMT
Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
