Gerald is a so-called cliche guide character. However, he also shows various interesting aspects of his personality that appear and disappear continuously, so I hope you will enjoy it. Other characters are also so unique! Look forward to it!

I am honored to be in charge of the ED theme of such wonderful work!! The production itself is very interesting and there are many comical scenes. I hope to make a song that will be the exact opposite of the OP theme that angela-san was in charged for! Certainly, I’d like to be able to convey the world view of the work, so I hope you will look forward to it! I will do my best to support this production through my song!

Gerald is a beautiful prince. He has good manners and can do anything. Although he shows a soft expression, he has a strong sense of judgment hidden within him. When voicing him, I thought that it was necessary to leave a favorable impression on the other characters around him and a great sense of charm to open up others heart, so I searched for the best tone of voice and tempo suitable to him.

Keith loves her sister! I played his role in a good balance between the otome game and reality. It makes me want to play an otome game (laugh). Enjoy it!!!

When I first saw the picture, I thought he looked so adorable like an angel. However, at the beginning of the story, he is scared and gloomy because of his painful thoughts. After meeting Katarina, he put efforts to express his feelings and change himself. The scene where Keith cried is the same scene in the original where I cried reading it, so I played it with all my heart to be able to make a wonderful scene!

Alan is a self-assured character at the time of the game, but since he met Katarina, he becomes a shy and docile person while being rude. In addition, since he shows a very insensitive side of his personality, it may be the sign of an unconscious infatuation towards someone.
Although they are all children with grown-up manners, Prince Alan also shows his great cuteness due to his silly and infantile side appropriate to a child, besides his noble elegance. I enjoyed playing him for the sense of inferiority he expresses towards his elder brother, and the way he and Katarina become friends. The grown-up Prince Alan is also cute! Look forward to it!
Regarding my role, I think that, from an objective point of view, he is a very hard to understand character. I tried to play him as a man who shows his hidden personality and acts according to his own justice and thoughts. Even when he talks with the others, he is often silent, grinning, but I worked hard to let Nicole’s backbone comes out! Please enjoy it by all means!

Nicole-kun is very kind and thoughtful of his younger sister. My first impression of him was he hide his feeling together with the surroundings, and showing a kind of cold-hearted side. I gave all my efforts in order to be able to express the true charm of Nicole-kun, that become visible since his meeting with Katarina.
