Caligula details Izuru, Naruko, and Aria, Ostinato Musicians Shonen Doll and Shadow Knife

Latest Caligula update introduces new characters.

FuRyu and Aquria have released new Caligula information and screenshots introducing characters Izuru, Naruko, and Aria, as well as Ostinato Musicians Shonen Doll and Shadow Knife.

Get the information below.

■ Characters

Izuru Minesawa (voiced by Yuichiro Umehara)


Izuru’s Catharsis Effect takes the form of a sword, bursts through the left side of his face and then covers it like a mask. Is the unsightly ripping of his head-turning beauty a scream from inside this quiet boy?

In battle, Izuru is a close-range attacker. Defense is his weakness, but since he is specialized in chain attacks, by getting the conditions in order, you can trigger a series of raging chain attacks.


Naruko Morita (voiced by Ari Ozawa)


Naruko’s Catharsis Effect leaves her alone, and instead her possessions transform, making it a a transformation unlike any other. Her beloved backpack changes and moves according to her two bits. She also has a large, hollow opening in the nape of her neck.

In battle, Naruko fights with a tricky style from any distance.


Aria (voiced by Asami Shimoda)


A virtual idol made at the same time as μ. Because μ’s power is too strong within Mobius, Aria was not able to preserve her original appearance, and seems to have become chibi.

She finds the protagonists and empowers them in their fight to return to reality to stop μ, who created Mobius and went crazy.

In contrast to the immaculate and lovely μ, Aria has a cheerful, bright, and friendly personality.


■ Ostinato Musicians

Shonen Doll (voiced by Yumiri Hanamori)
Character Composer: PolyhonicBranch


A boy who resides inside a huge library within Mobius, and is completely isolated from the outside world. He always wears a hood low over his eyes, hiding his expression.

He sneers at those who carry on social lives and cannot do anything without a group of people. He produces gloomy, violent music that feels like an attack on the listener.

While the concepts he treats can be difficult, his songs are helpful to lonely human beings, and he has some wildly enthusiastic followers.


Shadow Knife (voiced by Yuuma Uchida)
Character Sound Composer: 164


A hero of justice who executes traitors within Mobius. He judges evil by making use of his abilities to freely manipulate shadows and knives. Because he is the musician with the highest degree of combat specialization, he acts an an escort for μ.

He often says pompous stuff people feel like they’ve heard somewhere before, like, “That guy’s the weakest of all us musicians…,” which leaves those around him feeling awkward.

Some think Shadow Knife’s name, appearance, and even his abilities are straight out of an anime that was popular in reality several years ago.


Caligula is due out for PS Vita on June 23 in Japan.
