Tomori Kusunoki (Futaba Igarashi)
My name is Tomori Kusunoki, and I will be playing the role of Futaba Igarashi. Actually, I am a reader who has been healed by reading the manga for a long time, so I feel happy to be the voice of Futaba. In the TV anime as well, I will play the role so that the daily life of seniors and juniors will be a healing experience for everyone, so please look forward to the broadcast!
Masatsugu Takeuchi (Harumi Takeda)
I’m the voice of the senior staff. I’m Takeuchi. Every time we record, we are in a relaxed mood, full of laughter and fun. Shiromani-sensei also joins the recording every time, and we talk to each other as we work. We hope you will enjoy our work as much as we do.
Shiro Manta (original author)
It’s been so much fun to visit the recording every week! I just had so much respect for the profession of voice acting. I can’t thank the director and the production staff enough! I’m sorry for always bringing home candy from the recording site.
Ryota Ito (Director)
Futaba, who is full of energy and straightforward, and Takeda, a “man of the Showa era,” are bumpy but somehow fit together. It’s a fun story with such heartwarming interactions. It’s a story of fun, happiness, and a bit of sadness and pain. I hope to portray those days that you may look back on someday.
Yoshimi Narita (series composition)
I like the situation of seniors and juniors, don’t you? Igarashi-chan, who is small like a child but hardworking, and Takeda-senpai, who is big and dependable but a bit grumpy, we aimed to create a fun and funny story centered on the heart-stopping drama between them. Please take a look!
|Characters and cast
Sakrai Momoko: Hayami Saori
I hope that I can enjoy playing the role of the bright, beautiful, mischievous, and cute Sakurai-san to the fullest. We are all concentrating on our work at the recording studio, but the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, just like at the Itomaki Trading Company. We hope that you will enjoy this film for today’s relaxation and tomorrow’s vitality.
Souta Kazama: Leo Tschida
My name is Leo Tschida, and I’ll be playing the role of Souta Kazama. After the role was decided, I read the original story at home to practice, but I was grinning so much that I wondered if I could do it without laughing during the recording. I was worried that I wouldn’t do it without laughing during the recording, but I did my best. So please enjoy the broadcast with a big grin on your face.
Natsumi Kurobe: Rena Aoyama
I’m Rena Aoyama, and I’ll be playing the role of Natsumi Kurobe-chan. I was so happy when I heard that I had been chosen! I was so happy when I heard that I had been chosen! As Natsumi-chan, I’ll be watching over Futaba-chan, cheering her on, and making sure to tease and grin at her. Let’s get excited together when we see everyone talking and moving. Thank you for your continued support.
Sakrai Yuto: Horie Yui
My name is Yui Horie, and I played the role of Yuto Sakurai. I’m not used to playing a boy, so I was under a lot of pressure to play a boy, but I was asked to play a much cuter boy, so I played the role under a different kind of pressure. It’s a very gentle and heartwarming work. I hope you enjoy it.
Mona tsukiromona: Koga Aoi.
My name is Koga Aoi, and I’ll be playing the role of Tsukishiromona. Congratulations on the anime! I’m really looking forward to seeing Futaba and the others in action, and I’m delighted and honored to be working with Mona on this project. In the original story as well, Mona-san always goes her own way whenever she appears. I’ll do my best to keep up with her, have fun with her, and make sure that many people will love her. I look forward to working with you.
Why can’t we just tell each other how we feel already! This work is very popular on Twitter and always ranks high in the e-book rankings.
I’m really looking forward to the anime.
