【Yamaguchi Kira (performing as Asumi Saki/Phantomi Spade)】
“Upon hearing that there would be a movie version, I was so happy that I almost cried. At the same time, I was also very excited. The creation of something as special as this movie could not have been done without the hard work of the members of the “Girls × Heroine!” series, including the staff and cast of “Idol × Warrior Miracle Tunes!” and “Magical × Heroine Magimajo Pures!”. I will make sure to put forth my best effort to ensure that you will all enjoy the movie version of the series as well.

【Harada Toa (performing as Shizuki Yotsuba/Phantomi Clover)】
Ever since I was a child, I would watch movies and think, “I want to be on the screen too”, so when I heard that a movie version was being made, I was very happy, but also very nervous. When filming started, I was more nervous than when I appeared in my first drama. Appearing in a movie is a very precious experience for us, so we will make sure to put forth our best effort! This experience will be a level above the drama, and will be sure to be a great experience! Please come watch!”
【Ishii Ran (performing as Seira Kureha/Phantomi Diamond)】
“I was extremely surprised and happy when I heard there would be a film version. Following the shows “Idol × Warrior Miracle Tunes!” and “Magical × Heroine Magimajo Pures!”, the creation of the film version of “Secret × Warrior Phantomirage!” is thanks to the hard work of the group who worked on these shows. We will all make sure to put forth our best effort towards this movie in order to create the best viewing experience possible.
Finally, for all of those waiting for this movie to be finished, we will work hard to make it the most ‘fun-fun’ movie possible, so please look forward to it!”
