Time, and the pure essences of heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon, all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation, and it became magically fertile.

In our character listing, you will notice that they are listed twice. This is to credit both the voice actors from the English dubbed version and the original Japanese actors who acted the parts. (The voice actors are denoted with the word voice in brackets after their character's name.)
