Reina Udea set to voice Reze in Chainsaw Man anime
With the release of Chainsaw Man episode 12, it has been confirmed that Lady Reze, aka Bomb Devil, will be voiced by Reina Ueda. She is set to play a major role in the upcoming Bomb Girl Arc, where she will be Denji's romantic interest as well as the arc's primary antagonist.
Reina Ueda has previously worked in several anime, as she has been the voice of Ruri in Dr. Stone, Anri Kaidou in Ao Ashi, and Kanao Tsuyuri in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Fans react to Reze's appearance in Chainsaw Man cour 1 finale
Fans were stunned by Lady Reze's appearance in the cour 1 finale, as there was still some time before she would appear as per the manga. However, it seems like MAPPA wanted to leave fans with a little teaser for what was to come, as Reze is set to play a huge role in the upcoming Bomb Girl Arc.
As fans will know, Reze herself is the Bomb Devil hybrid who was sent by the Soviet Union to Japan with the mission of stealing the Chainsaw Devil's heart. Thus, she will be the primary antagonist in the upcoming arc.
While she may be an antagonist, fans are extremely fond of her and happy with what they got from the small clip at the end of the episode. Hopefully, fans will soon get to see her in action when the second cour is released.
