＜Below are the comments＞
【Kobayashi Chikahiro (voice of Uozumi Rikuo)】
“Sing 'Yesterday' for Me” is a youth drama about the trouble faced by the university students while taking action based on their thoughts. I will voice Rikuo with great care while sympathizing with his indecisiveness and late bloomer. I will do my best in an approach as if it was a live-action movie or stage play.
【Miyamoto Yume (voice of Nonoko Haru)】
This is a realistic work that depicts the unstable emotion of youngsters. I shared the same feeling with their conflict situations. Among all of them, Haru-chan is a girl who will face those situations up front more than anyone. I will do my best in voicing her while receiving her courage and impressed her strong yet cool personality.
【Hanazawa Kana (voice of Morinome Shinako)】
Shinako-san is a school teacher, she is good at cooking and looks as if she is a perfect woman but she is weak when it comes to romance…. It will make me happy if you could watch over her slowly yet irritating romance development in the daily scenery-like film.
【Hanae Natsuki (voice of Hayakawa Ro)】
After doing the after recording, it makes me think once again the conversation tempo of this works is quite interesting. Even the changes of emotion were drawn precisely during the silent scene. Ro's romance has a very high hurdle to overcome but I will try my best without giving up, so do look forward to it.
