  • Ryōtarō Okiayu (Toriko's Toriko) as Kidnapper
  • Masakazu Morita (Bleach's Ichigo Kurosaki) as Kidnapper

The cast of LaSalle Ishii, Yumi Morio, Mitsuru Miyamoto, and Haruki Sayama will reprise their roles from the 1996-2004 television anime as Kankichi Ryōtsu, Reiko Akimoto, Kei'ichi Nakagawa, and chief Daijiro Ohara, respectively.

Akira Shigeno will once again direct the anime at Studio Gallop. Takashi Yamada will pen the script. Makoto Seino from Fuji TV is credited for planning. Tomoko Takahashi from ADK is credited as producer.
