＜Below contains the full commentary＞
She's bright, strong and cute, to be able to voice such a wonderful girl is like a dream! I would like to pitch balls together with Yomi and her friends whole-heartedly! It's also my first time to be given the protagonist role, so there might be certain things that I'm not familiar with, but I'll try my best to liven things up in『Tamayomi』!
Never thought someone who doesn't normally go out much like me would be pulled into such a heated sports anime…! It's also the first time for me to have a role right from the first episode so I'm feeling very nervous. I would like to perform by cherishing thoughts of my relationship with my allies and on baseball. Looking forward to working together!
When I was given the opportunity to read the original work, I was greatly moved by not only the cuteness of the characters, also the story of their passion and determination while playing baseball as well. This time, I will be voicing Nozomi using a hakata dialect, and I'll try my best to convey the determination and the wonderfulness of the work itself to everyone! Looking forward to work with you all.
Because it's almost the first time I'm voicing for an anime, after receiving a call from my manager, I was confused to the point that I thought is this really reality…? Or a prank maybe…? （Laughs）though it's my favorite baseball work so I'm getting really excited! I'm feeling extremely nervous but I'll try to have fun with the other Nines.
I've always been a big fan of baseball so when I heard i will be involved in Tamayomi, I felt really happy and lucky. Girls seriously playing baseball is cute but above all the work itself which shines brighter than everything else. I will try my best in voicing so to share the wonderful perspective of this world to everyone. Looking forward to work with you!
I am honestly really happy to be able to play such a naturally gorgeous girl named Ryou. I used to admire baseball so I'm really proud to be able to be involved this time. I would like to convey the realism of playing baseball with just my voice!!
I'm a beginner when it comes to baseball just like Ibuki, so Im getting really excited to be able to get involved in baseball even more. I would try my best to convey Ibuki's tsukkomi and stopper role in Shikoshigaya, I would be glad if everyone would not only admire their cuteness, but their passionate feelings and youthfulness when playing baseball.
To be able to scold such cute girls(!?) I'm really glad to be given the role of the captain Rei Okada! Through this work, I hope everyone can enjoy 「I'm not just cute, I'm passionate!」 「I'm not only moe but also a passionte youth!」 Shinkoshigaya members!
I personally love sports and it's also my first time to be involved in something sport-related, so I was really glad when i decided to join. I would try my best to convey Shiragiku and her friends passionate youths and charms while they're having fun!
I remember how strongly I felt about wanting to get accepted during audition. I was so sure I've failed to get accepted, so when the results are out, I was shocked and had tears running down my face as I'm a real crybaby. I will do my best voicing as Yoshino during the summer in Shinkoshigaya, looking forward to working with you all!
It's my first time voicing an advisor and director role so I'm getting really excited! i will do my best in voicing the important role of Fuji-sensei, carefully guiding and analyzing the game from a different perspective than the players.
