Characters & Voice Actors List

Junk Dog

Voice Actor: Yoshimasa Hosoya

Junk Dog is a man who only has a nickname and nothing more for a name. He is a megaloboxer in an unrecognized, underground district and has an unfocused irritation against those who win in fixed matches. However, a chance encounter gives him a sponsor and he awakens as a man.

Gansaku Nanbu

Voice Actor: Shirou Saitou

Gansaku is someone who gambles on fixed megalobox matches in the unrecognized district saving up his daily winnings. However he indulges in alcohol as well as the desires right in front of him which means he has a very large amount of debt. He is especially excellent at being a trainer for boxers and is instilling various boxing techniques in Junk Dog.

Yukiko Shirato

Voice Actor: Nanako Mori

Yukiko is the heir to the Shirato group of companies known as a ‘concern’. She is the chief executive and ringleader who arranged the Megalobox tournament known as ‘Megaronia.’ She’s of exceptional beauty and also has majestic ambitions.
