Performing in AD-LIVE with the great Takagi Wataru-san! I've seen his stage play, and it was so amazing! It's an honor to be on the same stage! It's also a challenge for me! I'll do my best to make it an entertaining stage!
The AD-LIVE season has come again! I'll heal my wounds from last year's AD-LIVE ZERO in this performance, haha. I'm so excited!
I'm nervous since this is my first performance of AD-LIVE, but it makes me happy to be on the same stage as MoriKubo-san! He always takes good care of me. I'll do my best!
I'm glad to be part of AD-LIVE again. It's a completely different concept from last time so I'm excited. Mystery solving? Not my thing. I'll get help from Nishiyama Koutarou. Please come to see our performance!
This will be my first time to join AD-LIVE! It's nice to be on stage with Tsuda-san. He has taken good care of me since my debut. I'm nervous, but I'll enjoy it too!
Hi, I'm Takagi Wataru. AD-LIVE? Yeah, it's fun! It's fun to watch, not perform. Who would want to be in such a tough... What? They want me to join? I sure will!
Hi, I'm Ono Kensho. Every time I'm in AD-LIVE, I have to think so hard, I lose all my energy, but I somehow come back to this stage. I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen on stage this year!
This project has a reputation for being very interesting. I'm going to hop on its reputations and lean on the experienced Kenhou. I'll enjoy it, and I hope you will too.
Thank you for letting me join AD-LIVE! I'm super nervous but I'm even more excited! Please enjoy the show!
I'll be joining again! That means I can feel that tension again! I'll do my best so I can enjoy my drink after the show!
I've been called "Mr. Senshuuraku" (Senshuuraku means the last of a performance), but this is the first time I won't be performing last. This will be my first AD-LIVE with a woman, and I'm looking forward to it!
I'm Hikasa Youko and I'll be joining AD-LIVE. This is my first time so I'm nervous and worried, but since I'll be going on stage with Asa-nii (Asanuma-san's nickname), who I've known for a fairly long time, I can give it my best shot without hesitation. I hope my performance will entertain you all.
I never know what will happen next. AD-LIVE is the same. I can't predict anything. I just want to deliver you the best enjoyment and excitement. Please enjoy!
It's been a while since my last AD-LIVE!! It hasn't hit me yet, but I know I'm going to be nervous as it gets close! I love my partner！ I hope the performance goes well!!
Toriumi has returned. Thank you for having me again. I will be pairing up with Yoshino-san, who I've known for a long time. I don't know what will happen, but I'm excited.
You never know until it's over.

(1) Share your thoughts and impressions about Akira
Anyway, Akira is a complicated character, but even the axle part is very simple in a good sense, and although there are scary feelings and hesitation, I think that he is a person who will protect those who are in trouble in front of him. I would be happy if I could show his feelings as it is. Also, not all details have been revealed yet, but please look forward to this unique anime!

By all means, please watch this broadcast and enjoy the world of "EX-ARM"! Thank you for your support!
(1) Share your thoughts and impressions about Minami
Well, she is straightforward and full of justice, and she is a wonderful friend ,from whom I can get a lot of spirit and energy while I am playing. Although she is still a newbie policewoman, she deserves to be respected as a person because of her charming heart fulfilled with maternity. I will be very careful in performing her heart important movements!
(2)Message to the fans
It is set in the near future. Incidents that occur one after another in an unimaginable world. Anyway, the action battle scene is a masterpiece!! It's getting hotter for machines and people. Where do people, souls come from? It would be great if everyone could raise that question.
(1) Share your thoughts and impressions about Alma
Although Alma is an android that doesn't express emotions, it changes little by little as it is interacting with Minami and Akira by working together.
It was difficult but fan to express the changes delicately, so I hope all the viewers can feel it.
(2) Message to the fans
When I first read the original, I was immediately drawn to the grandeur of the story.
What is humanity, what will happen to Akira and the world, and many other questions that this anime is raising, I found very interesting as it's adding more power and presence.
I would be very happy if you could see it all the way to the end!
