Comment by Shimabukuro Miyuri
--Can you please tell us your impression of the character, Inca
Ever since I first read the original story and came into contact with Inca, I have the fear of not knowing what would happen to those around her and herself, since she is so honest with her feelings.
She loves thrills and doesn't really care about anything else, and the way she uses her abilities is somehow out of the ordinary, but I found that to be fascinating.
--Please leave a message to your fans.
I'm very happy to be involved in a work that is loved by so many fans and to be able to join the world of "Fire Force" as Inca.
I enjoyed the thrill of being nervous while doing the acting.
I can't wait to see the anime and feel the same excitement that I had when I read the manga, page after page.
