|Shinigami Boy and the Black Maid cast and characters
■Yoshitada Otsuka (Rob)
He is a nice gentleman. He looks like a suspicious person with a terrible plan in his belly, but he’s not. He’s just a man who takes pleasure in protecting and nurturing the little boy. I like this kind of character (laughs). I would be happy if I could gently help with the pure love between Alice and the little boy, which is a bit erotic and quite tantalizing.
■Inori Mizuse (Viola)
I love you, but I can’t touch you. This is a charming work with a sad and fragile love story. It is always heartbreaking to see them interact with each other, confirming their feelings for each other while being tossed around by Alice. My character, Viola, is the younger sister who enters into the relationship between the two. Please look forward to Viola’s facial expressions!
■Wakana Kuramochi (as Kahu)
My name is Wakana Kuramochi, and I will be playing the role of Kafu. When I read the original story, I felt that “Shinigami Boy and the Black Maid” is a wonderful story filled with various things such as someone’s feelings for someone, the desire to protect someone important, family, friends, and colleagues. I will do my best to convey the charm of Kafu-chan, who is straightforward, lovable, and sometimes even cool.
■Hiroshi Kamiya (as Zain)
When I was asked to be the voice of Zain, I read the original story in one sitting! The innocence of the little boy and Alice was heartwarming! The combination of Inouye’s original story and Yamakawa’s art is superb, and the dark, pure, and beautiful world of the original story is clearly and vaguely reproduced with digital technology. Please look forward to the anime version of “Shinigami Boy and the Black Maid”!
■Yuma Uchida (Walter)
I’m Yuma Uchida, and I’ll be playing the role of Walter. This is a story about a sentimental little boy and a funny maid. I think that the sadness that lies underneath the actions that make us chuckle is the charm that attracts us. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this story will come to life in animation. Please take a look at “Shinigami Boy and the Black Maid.
