＜Below contains the full commentary＞
I will do my best so that I can fully express the thoughts I’ve formed and shaped with excitement in my head as faithfully as possible. I’m really looking forward to being attracted to the anime as I’m working on it.
The experience I have as a voice actor is still rather shallow, but I want to fully bring out Asakusa’s clumsiness and passion to the fullest, so as to not run away from this challenge!
Kanamori is a thinker type. Without her ability to earn money and the ability to pull in people, the club wouldn’t have existed in the first place! !
But she’s exactly that type of person!! I wanted to play as a character with a strong personality that won’t be buried along the way.
Though the work is about making anime, it was truly amazing and intense in the manga as well, kind of makes you wonder what would happen if it were to be adapted into an anime … the same goes for the sound! There are lots of fun things to look forward to in the anime adaptation! Everyone, please do look forward to it as well.
My name is Matsuoka Misato and I ’ll be playing the role of Mizusaki Tsubame.
Mizusaki Tsubame-chan is a wonderful girl who sticks to her willingness and commitment, and a character I loved very much. I was really happy when I heard that I could play such as Tsubame.
I felt a sense of responsibility, but at the same time, I was also pumped up about it! I want to go on a heart-throbbing trip to an exciting world together with Tsubame-chan. I will also do my best to deliver a thrilling and exciting experience to everyone!
