Cast Battle Royale
To celebrate the broadcast of Season 2, the voice actors of the main cast were brought to a casino and played various games against each other in what they called "Cast Battle Royale" (キャストバトルロイヤル). The members involved were:
- Block A: Yuu Serizawa (Yumemi Yumemite), Mayu Udono (Runa Yomozuki), Ayaka Fukuhara (Sayaka Igarashi)
- Block B: Yuuki Wakai (Itsuki Sumeragi), Karin Nanami (Yuriko Nishinotouin), Mariya Ise (Midari Ikishima)
- Block C: Saori Hayami (Yumeko Jabami), Minami Tanaka (Mary Saotome), Tatsuya Tokutake (Ryota Suzui)
The segments were later narrated by Kirari and Ririka's voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro.
In the first round, the voice actors played Cheating Allowed. The players who ended the game with the highest amount of chips were, in order: Saori Hayami (40 chips), Mariya Ise (32 chips), Karin Nanami (31 chips), and Tatsuya Tokutake (25 chips).
In the semifinals, Saori Hayami played against Karin Nanami, while Mariya Ise played against Tatsuya Tokutake. The chosen game this time was blackjack. Hayami and Ise were the winners.
Finally, the last round was a game of Texas Hold'em played by Saori Hayami and Mariya Ise. Ironically, Hayami was the one who won, showing similarity with her character.
The Cast Battle Royale is still available to watch on Youtube and the official website.
