Go To

Angela Balzac

Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (JP), Wendee Lee (EN)
"I'll have to live on that dirty and barbaric real world? That's demoralizing. Now I know how Adam and Eve felt when they got expelled from paradise!"

  • Badass Adorable: She's not DEVA's top agent for nothing and she's undeniably cute.
  • Boobs of Steel: She has a nice rack (all of DEVA's Central Security female agents seem to have this trait) and whether its fighting in cyberspace, piloting a mecha, or simple hand-to-hand combat, this girl can kick some serious ass.
  • Emotional Regression: Angela acts a bit like a brat after being transferred into a body with a physical maturity of just 16 years. This may be a side-effect of being raised in cyberspace since she was less than two months old, where she was never (presumably) exposed to the very hormones her body is producing since she didn't let it age to adulthood. She doesn't return to her original form after uploading herself, so any difference in personality can only be determined through her brief introduction.
  • I Choose to Stay: Frontier Setter offers to take her into space with him due to her not being able to return to DEVA because of her actions against them. She choose not to because she wants to see more of the real world on Earth.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The viewer gets quite a few shots of Angela's butt. While this might not be enough to make her Ms. Fanservice, note that the part of her uniform meant to cover the genitalia is really just a thong connected to her shirt. And she's stark naked when she travels through cyberspace.
  • Older Than They Look: It's stated that Angela is 56 but her cloned body is physically 16 years old. It would've been older, but she wanted to head down to Earth sooner. Dingo is rather disappointed when he realizes that his Deva contact is a teenage girl.
  • She Knows Too Much: She tries to convince Central Security that Frontier Setter is not a hostile to DEVA but they don't listen. Since she refuses to destroy him and knows of his intent, Central Security sentences her to life imprisonment. But she escapes with his help and holds off DEVA's attack until Setter can escape into space.
  • Trapped in Another World: On Earth, though not really trapped. It becomes real to an extent at the end of the film. After betraying Central Security, Angela now has no choice but to stay on Earth with Dingo permanently.

  • Tsundere: Angela (appropriately enough voiced by Rie Kugimiya) is initially tsun towards Dingo, and can't really stand his mellow attitude when she has a mission to accomplish ahead of other Security Agents. Her Emotional Regression doesn't help on that front. She goes very "dere" when she catches a cold and Dingo spends a night taking care of her. After she realizes that Dingo's assessment of DEVA not being the paradise it's cracked up to be, she begins to respect him quite deeply.

Zarik Kajiwara "Dingo"

Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki (JP), Steve Blum (EN)

  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Angela; he spends much of the film protecting her, when she catches a cold he starts carrying her around and feeding her soup, etc.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Angela finds him to be extremely odd and hard to work with. But he's really good at finding Frontier Setter, as well as knowing when a good deal presents itself.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: The only reason Angela ever finds Frontier Setter is because Dingo accurately anticipated every method he would use to track Angela and planned accordingly. Without him, she'd have gotten nowhere.
  • Mentor Archetype: He acts as this of sorts to Angela do to her being unfamiliar with life on Earth.
  • Mr. Exposition: Most of what the viewer and Angela learn about earth comes from him.
  • Nice Guy: He doesn't look it at first, but he does keep an eye out for Angela, and tries to get good deals to help people on Earth, such as luring all the sandworms for her to destroy so he could then sell their meat.
  • Street Smart: His skills and knowledge makes him a very effective partner to Angela, in particular when it comes to dealing with the local population and tracking down their target.

Frontier Setter

Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya (JP), Johnny Yong Bosch (EN)

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Interestingly inverted. Frontier Setter is an AI who evolved an ego. However, this amounts to basically "learn to become more human" and "complete my purpose" which is to complete the galaxy exploring ship Genesis Ark. He's very friendly to humans otherwise, and even refuses to attack DEVA even to save his own functionality.
  • Benevolent A.I.: Frontier Setter is labeled a dangerous hacker, one which Angela is tasked to search and apprehend. However, when she and Dingo first meet him, he's non-violent, and then explains how he came to be, and that his plan was to explore space to find new suitable worlds for humanity. Not only that, he even offers to help Angela reestablish a connection to DEVA so she can report on her current situation, despite knowing it's not going to go well.
  • Hero Antagonist: While he is considered to be the antagonist of the story, he isn't malevolent nor evil. In fact, he's really friendly towards humans.
  • The Computer Is Your Friend: He is actually an AI who's friendly to humans and wants to become more like them.

Deva Officials

Voiced by:
Official A: Minoru Inaba (JP), Beau Billingslea (EN)
Official B: Hisao Egawa (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN)
Official C: Noriko Uemura (JP)

The three officials in charge of Deva's System Security. Since they have much more memory allocation than regular citizens, their avatars appear as massive statues of deities from different cultures.

  • A God Am I: They appear as massive statues of Zeus, Nio, and Ganesha, respectively. Fittingly enough, they turn out to be the actual villains of the film.
  • Corrupt Bureaucrat: After learning that Angela didn't consider Frontier Setter to be a threat, they had her permanently archived rather than have her report to Deva's ruling council.
