Regarding their roles in the anime, both voice actors commented:
Takehito Koyasu commented,
“I challenge myself to record the anime as if I would never lose.
Even if the opponent is the main character, but the main character is strong after all (laughs).
I really enjoy playing the villain, but it is very painful for me because I don’t like to lose.
How many more fights do I have to fight before I have a winning future? I’m going to do my best!”
Reina Ueda commented,
“I have been interested in Ultimatia since I first read the original story, so I was very happy when I was informed that I had been selected for the audition.
She is delicate and fragile as glass, but I think you can sense not only kindness but also some unpleasantness in her compassionate words and actions.
I hope you enjoy Ragna Crimson as well. We hope you will enjoy the anime as well.”
