<Below are the full comments by the cast>
“Itadori Yuji played by: Enoki Junya”
He is a very straightforward character and when I’m performing, I will try not to overthink things. With the help of the other cast members and staff, I will try my best to perform as lively as I can.
“Fujiguro Megumi played by: Uchida Yuma”
My first impression of the character was of someone unsociable. I am interested to find out what kind of thoughts lay hidden within a person who makes a living as a shaman. The recording has not started yet and I’m excited to find out what kind of story lies in wait!!
“Kugisaki Nobara played by: Seto Asami”
I am currently planning to read the original work to do research on her (the character). The after recording hasn’t taken place yet so I think that this step is necessary for me to visualize and portray her character. Additionally, I think that it will be a challenge as well as I don’t want to be too fixated on my impression of her.
