Art Of Atelier Totori’s Lead Characters

By Spencer . May 16, 2011 . 10:34am

Along with the Atelier Totori announcement, NIS America shared artwork with most of The Adventurer of Arland’s lead characters. We’ll start with the three you’re probably most familiar with. Totori (full name Totooria Helmold), her mentor Rorona from Atelier Rorona, and Ceci her sister.

Chim, homunculus created by Rorona, can help synthesize items for you… if you have pie.

Guid wears a yellow tunic and is Totori and Ceci’s carefree father. Gino is a childhood friend of Totori and dreams being an adventurer. Marc is an engineer with a gadget filled backpack (that reminds me of a certain Goonies character) who scours ruins in search of machines. Melvia is a seasoned adventurer (I suppose that’s why she doesn’t need armor) and a friend of Totori’s sister. Sterk is a stern looking knight.

We’re missing one character here… Mimi who grows so close to Totori she shows up in the sequel, Atelier Meruru, as a playable character.


Atelier Totori is slated for a fall release on PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe.

    Absolutely love the art style.  Looking forward to getting an art book from NISA as well as this:

  • Guest

    Their father Guid looks like he’s 16 years old

    • True, but that never stopped “anime” characters from becoming parents and having seriously questionable age differences with their kids~

    • Zero_Destiny

      Play GRANDIA III Yuki’s mom Miranda, who is a playable chara looks and acts like she’s 3 or 4 years older than him tops. lol


      • Miranda is a total milf, best character in that game :D

  • solbalmung

    I was just wondering, is the upcoming Atelier Meruru the last chapter in the Arland or w/e named new project/arc of the Atelier games? If So, I hope Gust goes back to the Mana Khemia games expand it more or create a new franchise/project alltogether. Loved the 2nd Mana Khemia :3

    • Neckbear

      They -must- make Atelier Anna or something similar, after they do Mana Khemia 3.

      Either that or a Pamela-focused game.

      But yeah, I’d expect them to not make a new main Atelier trilogy until the next generation.

  • Yukito

     Totori looks so awesome. Of all threee, I think she looks the best, but I don’t know her personality yet. Rorona was adorable, so I cannot say the cutest yet. I cannot wait for Totori. Hopefully, Meruru makes way over here too.

  • I’m getting plenty of Vaan vibes from Gino right now, minus the shirtless, of course.

  • Haha, Marc’s pretty awesome / handsome looking, if I do say so myself.
    If I’m also not mistaken, he’s also got a pair of punchy arms in that backpack of his.

  • HarryHodd

    Such beautiful character artwork.

  • Beautiful and very cute design indeed, I love the fluffy-ness in this game, it’s so…~ x3
    Adult Rorona looks so delicious, I would love to have one bite or two off her~
    Also I hope we get some sister x sister action, between Totori and Cecilia!!! <3

  • Ceci is my type.

    I hope for a second batch of artwork with Hagel and Gerhard. They have the most hilarious cutscenes and are just really well done.


  • Zero_Destiny

    Oh my God is Totori’s so cute. :) And Rorona all grown up is just adorable. ^_^ This game is going to be so cute that I think my head will explode when I play it. I really can’t wait to see more. Props for the Data reference from the Goonies Spencer. XD


    • AnimusVox

      This is why I decided to play Rorona instead of Demon’s Souls during a 12 day straight, stressful, and tiring work timeline  

  • Xeahnort

    Mel kishida´s character designs are pretty wonderful

  • I’e already seen these millions of times, and I still love them! Kishida Mel is a god when it comes to gorgeous character design! His art is so good, they even get used for original animes( Soranowoto and Hanasaku Iroha).

    Totori looks too cute! She’s probably my favorite of the 3 main characters!:3

    Also, time has been an ally to Sterk. He went from a noble looking knight to a porn star xD

  • Shinixis

    The artist for this needs a gaint trophy of some sort, some amazing skills. The lassies are so well done, although the male designs are a bit meh.

    Sterk looks badass though, kinda has a bit of a squall thing going on. Also not that keen on the new chibi Hom.

    All in all though if it improves on altier rorona, it’s gonna be good.

  • Croix

     Sterk and Melvia are back? Sign me up.

    • Rarutos

       Eh? But I don’t think Melvia was in Rorona at all…

      • Croix

         She was/will be in Totori. And based on the picture above, she won’t look much different.

        • Rarutos

          Uh what? You’re really not making much sense. Of course she will be in Totori! Are you confusing this article for a Meruru one? o_o

          • Croix

            ….yes. =x Sorry about that. I was wondering why pretty much all of the other Totori characters didn’t look different.

  • Methylene

    Sterk took a few levels of badass here. Wonder what happened XD

  • Chim! <3 They're so cute.

    Can't wait to see Corey as a dlc… hopefully for us.

  • holyPaladin

    Kishida Mel artwork <3

    Ceci is beautiful and Totori is kawaiii~
    And Chim looks like Hom but mini version

  • AzureNova

    Cant Wait! >_<

  • PrinceHeir
