The Prima Doll anime series welcomed the Japanese voice actress Tomoyo Kurosawa, who is joining the cast of the series as an automata named Haikagura. The announcement comes after the recent airing of Prima Doll episode nine.
Haikagura is an automata that was discovered by Haizakura (Azumi Waki) and Karasuba (Tomori Kusunoki) on their train ride home from Alteria, where they rescued their master Nagi Touma (Ayumu Murase) from abductees of the Imperial Capital. She appeared mysterious in the recent episode, yet it was revealed later on that she was part of the Oka doll lineage, dolls that were made specifically for war.
“I have already finished the recording, but I was moved by the harmony of the lively days of these cute and strong girls and the many complicated feelings that run underneath. I put my heart and soul into my performance. Please enjoy it.”Comment from Tomoyo Kurosawa
Some of the popular roles Tomoyo Kurosawa played include Itsuki Inubozaki in Yuki Yuna Is A Hero, Amiya in Arknights, Kumiko Omae in Sound! Euphonium, Phosphophyllite in Land of the Lustrous, Tina Sprout in Black Bullet, Göll in Record of Ragnarok, and Ayano Toki in the second season of Laid-Back Camp.

HiDIVE is streaming the Prima Doll anime through a license by Sentai Filmworks, which describes the plot as:
Café “Kuronekotei” boasts an unusual roster of employees. A group of automata, or autonomous mechanical dolls, serve their patrons with a smile, but they weren’t always so suited to domestic life. Just a few years prior, automata served as weapons in the great war, fulfilling the bloody purpose for which they were created. Now that the war has ended, these machines with human hearts search for their place in an unfamiliar, peaceful world — and their search begins at the Kuronekotei café.
