Kuki Ageha has been promoted as a heroine in the PS2 ADV non-eroge from Minato Station, Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji -Otsukae Nikki-
, slated to go on sale March 27, 2008 in Japan. The non-erotic game cast is the same as the anime cast.
Ageha may still be a badass in the non-ero game. A badass heroine.
On the other hand, a Tanaka Rie character in another upcoming anime has the trappings of a sinister villain.
In the sexy, hardboiled science fiction action anime, Mnemosyne -Mynemosyne no Musume-tachi-, Tanaka Rie voices Yamanobe Sayara, head of Aoyama Pharmaceutical Company's Sayama Laboratory. The haughty, quite sadistic Sayara conducts illegal experiments at the laboratory.
Tanaka Rie is very happy to play Sayara, who she describes as a considerably sadistic character and a "kowai [scary] oneesan."
Yamanobe Sayara appears to be another one in Tanaka Rie's evergrowing line of antagonistic, evil, and villainous roles: Morganna Mode Gone in .hack//SIGN, Suigintou in Rozen Maiden, Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome, Nomura/Takagi in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, etc.
