HoYoVerse introduced one of the characters in their new upcoming game Zenless Zone Zero. Her name is Anby Demara. She is part of the Odd-Job Agency, known as the Cunning Hares. Zenless Zone Zero‘s Anby is a mysterious girl with an unknown past. She appears in the announcement trailer using an electromagnetic blade.
Nicole accidentally took Anby in in-game, though the backstory behind that wasn’t shared yet. Anby seems to be somewhat dense, because although she loves movies, HoYoVerse said that she takes them a bit too literally. The developer also described Anby as someone who lacks common sense.
A young girl whose age and past are a mystery.
Accidentally taken in by Nicole and joined the Cunning Hares, she gradually became a strong, and most trusted companion.

Atsumi Tanezaki voices Anby. She is the voice behind Anya Forger from Spy X Family. Other recent notable roles Tanezaki undertaken include Sajuna Inui from My Dress-Up Darling, Vivy from Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song, and the titular Dai from the new anime adaptation of Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai that began in 2020.
HoYoVerse is currently still taking sign-ups for the closed beta test of Zenless Zone Zero. The closed beta is only available for PC and iOS for now, but HoYoVerse is planning to expand the game’s available platforms.
Zenless Zone Zero is still in development. It will release on PCs and mobile devices some time in the future.
