Morikubo had the following to say about playing Orphen for the first time in 19 years:
“I was in my mid-20s when I first met Orphen. This is the most important title when I talk about my career as a voice actor. There is nothing that could make me happier than playing this character again after a long time. I can meet that man again. I can travel with those friends again. And I can scream again! My heart is too full for words! ‘Ware wa hanatsu hikari no hakujin!’ “
