Staff and Cast Biographies

Here are brief biographies of the people behind the scenes, those responsible for the manga, anime, and CDs. Much of the voice actor information came from Hitoshi Doi's excellent Seiyuu (voice actor) database. The abbreviation SD stands for Seima Densetsu (Legend of the Divine Demon), the second anime series.
