The ABEMA original program "Hikasa Iguchi no Onnakoe Gohan!" featuring Hikasa Youko and Iguchi Yuka as the MC was broadcast exclusively on May 21, 2021, on ABEMA "Anime Live Channel". Ogura Yui appeared as a guest and other than the various talk when the three of them are cooking, it also featured the ad-lib dubbing session "Korezo Seiyuu Narikiri Atereko", introduction of convenient kitchen goods "Otekaru Kantan! Benri Kitchen Goods", and other corners.
The broadcast will have the MCs cooking cuisine from three different countries with the theme of "Enjoys the traveling atmosphere from the worldwide cuisine" as we are unable to travel overseas in the current situation.
The first broadcast featured Hikasa, who uploaded cuisines on her blog, Ogura, who loves cooking and often cooked at home, and Iguchi, who didn't cook recently as she thinks it troublesome. The enthusiasm from Iguchi is "I want to try to love cooking today and want to provide a cuisine that even someone like me can cook".
After learning about their cooking experience, the menu for the broadcast was announced! It will be Italy's Acqua Pazza, Mexico's Tostadas Salad, and Korea's Yangneyom Chicken.
Despite Iguchi voiced out her astonished "Can we even cooked these?", she was able to show her cooking skill that she gained from attending the previous cooking class while facing difficulties in the process as she was not used to it. However, Hikasa and Ogura, who often cooked, were able to show out their skill splendidly. While showing off their magnificent cutting skill with the knife, they progressed in their cooking smoothly and also enjoyed cooking the worldwide cuisine that they hardly cooked by saying "It fun to cook cuisine that I've never seen before!" and "So, this is how the sauce is created~!”
Also, there is a talk session during the cooking. As the theme of the program is related to oversee travel, they had talked about various topics from their recent activities to their most confident cuisine. During the topic "Do you cooked according to the recipe? Or self-improvised?", Hikasa answered, "Of course, I cooked according to the recipe. My original dish is the fried rice with the leftovers ingredients only".
On the other hand, Ogura answered "I followed the recipe, but I usually arranged it in my own way afterward." Followed by "For example, I replaced sugar with honey as it seems that it would be fine if I mix mirin, soy sauce, and honey together" as Ogura explained about her own cooking method since she mostly cooked traditional Japanese cuisines.
Then, when asked about "What's the overseas cuisine that you want to eat", Ogura answered, "Pho is very delicious!", as she also revealed a failure during overseas, saying "I love Coriander, but I was served with the grass-like that comes with the stem at the local stores. So, I try to insert it in the soup for the time being, but when I looked at the locals, they are chewing the fresh leaf from the stem and they ate the whole stem in the end."
After they finished cooking, its time for them to try it. The three of them are enjoying the cuisines they cooked with the following comments "It has a strong flavor and is extremely delicious", "I can see the Mediterranean Sea!", and "Our cuisines are delicious~".
Then, it was the corner where they talked while enjoying the meal.
During the theme "What's the failure during work that you can laugh now?", toward Ogura's reply, "I once ad-libbed when I forgot the lyrics during the concert", Hikasa mentioned "Your recovery from the failure was excellent. Isn't this the technique that was obtained from the difference between the numbers of stage performance?"
When talking about the stage performance, the topic moved to the unit "RO-KYU-BU!", where the three of them are members of. Some of the conversations are "I was helped by Yui-chan", "During the break, Yui-chan keep practicing in front of the mirror, and in the end, everyone got drawn in by her and also started practicing during the break as well, which make me thought of the power of youth," and "That was a splendid effort".
After that, the three of them talked about the role they wanted to try out, their dreams, the failure during their debut, and other topics. Before the broadcast end, they reflected back by saying, "It was fun cooking with both of you, and I become energetic from this liveliness", "I want to have fun cooking with everyone again!", "I'm looking forward to meeting you again!", and they also hype up the expectation toward the next broadcast.

In addition, a campaign is currently underway on the official Twitter page, where three winners will be chosen by lottery to receive a reproduction of the congratulatory illustration by the original author, Oda Tomohito.
Komi Shouko (CV. Koga Aoi)
Komi can’t communicate.
She looks like a beautiful girl that everyone turns to, but she finds it extremely difficult to communicate and when she tries to talk to others, her face freezes up with nervousness and she thinks about how to talk to them and what to do afterwards. But the truth is, she wants to talk to people. Her dream is to “make 100 friends”.
Q1: What was your impression of this work?
First of all, when I picked up the book, I saw the title and the cover picture and thought, "Oh, there's something about this girl." The cover alone had an impact that piqued my interest.
The title, ""Komi can’t communicate," I thought it was interesting that there was a catchphrase which made it easy to understand what kind of girl the character was. I could relate to the realism of the situations that many of us experienced during our school days, and I found myself reading on and on.
There are a lot of characters with strong "personalities" in this work, the parts that I tend to think negatively about, or that I don't want people to see or know about, are portrayed as positive.
I thought it was a work that made me think, "Maybe I can accept this kind of me..." and gave me the courage to push those who are troubled.
Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how enthusiastic are you about the role?
From the side, she is a cool, beautiful woman who everyone admires. However, in reality, she is not very good at communicating, and when people talk to her, she scares them even though she never meant to. She was confused, and even though she really wanted to get along with them, she couldn't get the words out. The more I got to know her, the more I felt that way, and the more I fell in love with her. (laughs)
I will do my best to portray her moving forward slowly but firmly, step by step, and to convey her thoughts and warmth in a few words.
Tadano Hitohito (CV. Kajiwara Gakuto)
Tadano-kun is just a person.
His goal is to read the atmosphere around him so that his "normal" self doesn't stand out in the class, and to live his high school life without any disturbance. However, he seems to be very good at understanding people's feelings, and sees that Komi can’t communicate, so he becomes her "first friend.
Q1: What is your impression of this film?
Komi is really adorable... as I read the original story I'm always struck by how she gradually expresses her emotions even though she's clumsy! In addition to Komi, all the other characters have distinct personalities, which reminds me of my own high school days, and I can't help but fantasize about how happy my student life would be if I had such friends around me... (laughs) I especially like seeing them at seasonal school events, festivals, and other events, and I can't help but cry as I read them, thinking about my school days that I can't go back to...! And personally, the covers are always too beautiful! I'm so impressed! Thank you so much, Oda-sensei!
Q2: What is your impression of the character you are going to play and what is your enthusiasm for the role?
I think that Hitohito is a boy who has the goodness of being normal! He was a little naughty in junior high school, but once he sees it objectively, he becomes normal. It reminds me of my own school days. (laughs) I actually once tried to be a little naughty, but then I realized how naughty I was and went back to normal, so I felt sympathy for him while reading! But I'm very communicative myself, so I admire people who treat me like a normal person like Hitohito-kun.
Every time I read it, I fall in love with it, so I'll do my best to play it charmingly!
Osana Najimi (CV. Murakawa Rie)
Osana Najimi is familiar.
She is Tadano-kun's childhood friend. Or rather, she is a childhood friend to everyone. Her communication skills are so high that she can get along with anyone in a matter of minutes, but she seems to have a hard time with Komi because of their "past relationship". She usually wears a skirt and dresses as a "female student," but she used to wear a school run and dress as a "male student" until middle school. Her gender is no longer known.
Q1: What is your impression of this work?
As I was cackling and laughing at the funny gags, I felt that one of the appealing aspects of the film was that it depicted human relationships in such a way that tears of laughter turned into tears of emotion, and that these human relationships were carefully drawn. I think we all want to watch Komi achieve her dreams, but I also think there is a real pleasure in watching her grow up.
Q2: What is your impression of the character you are going to play and what is your enthusiasm for the role?
I will be playing the role of Osana Najimi, a strong character with special abilities who has a mysterious side but also possesses tremendous communication skills. Although she is such a strong character, she fits in so well with everyone that she is everyone's childhood friend, so I hope I can bring out the best of her. I haven't recorded yet, so I don't know how it will turn out, but I'm very happy to be involved in "Komi can’t communicate.” I'll do my best so that everyone can enjoy it!
