Takuma Terashima as Satoru Mikami
(Season 1 Opening & Season 2 Ending Theme Performer)
“Congratulations on the 10th anniversary! It’s been five years since I had the privilege of becoming deeply involved as a voice actor and theme song performer. Between the anime, games, and character songs, I have spent far more time singing than voice acting, making it a truly valuable experience in my career. Thank you so much for the opportunity! And now, we have a special live event dedicated solely to Tensura! I will do my utmost to liven up the world of Tensura, so let’s enjoy it together!”
Azusa Tadokoro as Chloe
“Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of Tensura! It’s a heartfelt moment for me as I reflect on the fact that I’ve been walking alongside you for a long time, both as the voice of Chloe and as an artist. I was overjoyed to receive the invitation to the 10th event! “Little Soldier,” the second ending theme, holds a special place in my heart even to this day. I will sing it with all my heart, filled with gratitude towards Tensura for bringing us together.”
Akane Kumada as Ellen
“Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of Tensura! It’s truly amazing to witness the enduring love that Tensura receives, and I’m also among those who draw courage from it. Eren holds a special place in my heart as she was the first character I voiced as a voice actress. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to contribute to the music for “The Slime Diaries” and “MaouRyu,” so I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone involved in Tensura. With deep appreciation, I am thrilled to finally have the chance to perform at the long-awaited Tensura 10th Live! Thank you so much, and I kindly ask for your support!”

“Congratulations on the 10th anniversary! Tensura is a story of gathering comrades and building a nation. It’s incredible how our love for Tensura has grown, and we have gained so many wonderful companions along the way. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of everyone. Thank you so much. Let’s make Tensura 10th Live, where we trace the journey of the past 10 years through music, an unforgettable celebration. With heartfelt gratitude for these 10 years, we eagerly await you at Tempest (the venue).”
