I can feel their enthusiasm to make it even better based on the first season and the movie version!
I’m super excited!
I sent a can of crab to the studio the other day, so please eat it!

Anna Nagase (as Riko Amanai)

-What is your impression of the character Riko Amanouchi?

The hair band was the first thing that jumped out at me. It’s cute, I want one too. In the original work, she was very energetic from her first words, so I have an impression that she is very active. I can’t wait to see how it will be portrayed in the anime.”

-How do you want to play the character? How do you want to play the characters and what do you have in mind when you play them?

I think she will be an important character for both Gojyo and Getou in the story of their past. I will do my best to cherish the events of the day and the movements of her heart!

■Who is Anna Nagase

[Takehito Koyasu (as Fushiguro Toji)]

-What is your impression of the character Fushiguro Toji?

He is a selfish, capricious scumbag and a pimp. If he existed in real life, he would be a very repulsive man, but in his creations, he is very attractive.
Is it because of my artistic background that I am irresistibly attracted to this kind of badass guy? Or is it just a longing for something I don’t have? Whatever the case, I am very happy to play him.”

-How would you like to play the character? How do you want to play the character?

I think it would be great if I could play a mature, cool and stylish character with complex emotions hidden inside.
