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!

To commemorate the premiere of "BanG Dream! Episode of Roselia I : Promise" on April 23, 2021, and "BanG Dream! Episode of Roselia II : Song I am." on June 25, a special mook featuring "Roselia" will be released.
The mook follows the story of the 1st half that depicts the promise from forming the band to joining "FUTURE WORLD FES.", and approaches the challenging story that Roselia depicts and the 5 members' charms.
Cool, beauty and charming original photos, personal interviews to bring out the members' true feelings, and creators' interviews for the spirited staff engaged in the production will be featured with full-colored 112 pages.
'Ani-PASS Special Edition Episode of Roselia Reference Book' will be released on April 21,2021, at 1,980 JPY (including tax). The supplement will be Roselia's double-sided pinup.
"BanG Dream!" (abbreviated Bandori) project's girls band Roselia and RAISE A SUILEN will hold a joint live "Rausch und/and Craziness II" at Yokohama Arena on February 22, 2021. Photos of the live event have arrived.
RAISE A SUILEN was the first band to take to the stage.
After the opening movie, the curtain went up and Raychell (Ba.&Vo.) sang "mind of Prominence" to the audience, which was dyed with colorful lights from the arena to the stands. Lasers were flying wildly.
Then they went on with "A DECLARATION OF XXXX" and "HELL! or HELL?". The band played "UNSTOPPABLE", which was relatively light for the set played that day, "REIGNING" with its tough band sound that sounded anthemic, and "SOUL SOLDIER" with its contrast of thrashy guitar sound and clear melody line.
There was almost no MC, but instead Boki DJ'd and interspersed the live event with sessions, and before you knew it, the show was over.
The band played "DRIVE US CRAZY" and "!NVADE SHOW!" with a positive nuance, forcing the audience to burn out completely.
Then it was the turn of Roselia to take the lead.
They opened the stage with "Avant-garde HISTORY" featuring the straight voice of Aina Aiba (vo. Minato Yukina), the chorus and the ensemble with a tame effect, followed by "FIRE BIRD" with flames on the bright red stage.
After the MC talked about their enthusiasm for their first live with an audience since last summer, they started again with "PASSIONATE ANTHEM".
In the middle part of the show, they performed a medley of "Song I am.", "Ringing Bloom", "Sunshine Road Night" and "Determination Symphony" after a comical MC time to entertain the audience with the gap between the songs and their appearance.
They continued with "Kiseki", a ballad song sung with rich emotion by Aiba, "Blessing Chord", a new song with symphonic and intense sound, "BLACK SHOUT", which was the "best beginning song" for them, and "ZEAL of proud", in which all the members had their own vocal parts.
For the encore, the members of RAS were joined by Aiba, and they performed the cover album "Bandori! Girls Band Party! Cover Collection Vol.5" which was about to be released.
The full members of the two bands got together to perform "EXPOSE 'Burn out! and "Natsuiro Starmine" with the full members of the two bands together, and the whole venue applauded them.
The live performance of "Rausch und/and Craziness II" will be available for special streaming from 14:00 on March 13. For more details, please visit the special page.

The new original anime "Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood" will be broadcast on NTV, hulu, Tatsunoko Production, Dentsu, and Bushiroad (hereinafter "Jouran').
The production presentation was held in Meijiza on February 9, and was broadcast live on the official YouTube channel of "Jouran".
Cast members, including Mimori Suzuko, Aoi Shouta, Raychell-san, Itou Ayasa, and Kobayashi Chikahiro, as well as BAKKEN RECORD animation producer Omatsu Hiroshi, Bushiroad Chairman Kidani Takaaki, and NTV announcer Itou Ryo were on stage as MCs.
In this report, we will convey the latest information, such as world view setting, music information, goods development, and other announced details.
The presentation started with the screening anime PV.
"On that day, when I lost everything..."
The PV, which begins with the narration of the main character "Yukimura Sakiha" played by Suzuko Mimori, a young girl staring at the "marauder" is projected behind the flames of Guren. And it becomes clear that is aiming for revenge.
The next scene was "Meiji 64".
"Another Japan" where the Tokugawa Shogunate was not destroyed in the Meiji Restoration and Tokugawa Yoshinobu kept his power.
It developed as a glittering metropolis that fused modern science with the culture of the Meiji era.
A monorail-shaped vehicle in a high-rise building with a beautiful night view. And a frog-like wriggling monster...
It seems that each thought is intertwined and becomes a big "swell" to move the gear of fate in the intense action and human drama that unfold in a unique world.
The PV is currently available on the official "Jouran" YouTube channel.
NTV April 6, 2021 ~ Every Wednesday 01:29 A.M.
BS Nippon Television April 7, 2021 ~ Every Wednesday 00:00 A.M.
CS Nippon Teleplus April 13, 2021 ~ Every Tuesday 00:30 A.M.
On Hulu all episodes will be one week in advance
* Overseas broadcast is also announced
A beautiful woman "Yukimura Sakiha" becomes the assassin of the dark organization "Nue", which belonged to the Tokugawa government.
The next announcement was about the world view and the main characters.
This work is a story set in 1884, which was developed through science and the theory of Yin and Yang.
In this world, the battles between the dissident organization Kuchinawa, which aims to overthrow the government, and the dark organization "Nue", which was entrusted with the extermination of Kuchinawa, unfold in the darkness of the city.
Mimori Suzuko plays Yukimura Saki, who has a double life of the owner of an antiquarian bookstore in daily life, but and is the assassin who belongs to Nue at night.
She belongs to the "blue-blooded clan" with special powers, but her parents were murdered by the Kuchinawa chief "Janome" when she was a kid, so now she becomes a revenger looking for a Janome.
According to Mimori-san, it was such a difficult role that she put every effort as if she had worn away her life, and at the end of the recording, she was always doubting, "Was it good?"
Tsukishiro Makoto, played by Aoi Shouta, is a beautiful woman dressed as a man. She is usually a bandoneon player, but she is also an assassin of Kuchinawa.
She is good at deceiving people and never shows her true intentions. Aoi-san commented that he was expected to understand Tsukishiro's feelings because he often plays a female character. Her sense of mission was renewed.
Hanafu Elena, played by Raychell-san, is an assassin of "Nue" who is a well-known novelist and also a prostitute. She is an emotional, annoying, hedonist who is loyal to her desires.
Raychell-san's first impression of Elena was just "sexy," and she was wondering how she should act. She seems to be enjoying dubbing while receiving the advice of her performance.
Nakamura Asayo, played by Itou Ayasa, is a 7-year-old girl. Although Yukimura Sakiha killed her parents, she is an innocent child who is protected by Yukimura and lives with her. She is a solid person who handles both storekeeping and housework, and she is a unique person whose "world in which she lives" is different from the members of other assassins so far.
Itou-san explained that for that purpose director told her to be "innocent" one.
Hitoshi Kuzuhara, played by Chikahiro Kobayashi, is a person who "exists to protect Tokugawa Yoshinobu." He is the chief of "Nue" and has darkness in himself, but according to Kobayashi-san, he will be spoiled if he thrusts further. It seems that every character has various things, and it is curious about the human drama around that.
Music & Goods information
The rock band "RAISE A SUILEN" of which Raychell is part of, is in charge of the opening theme song and ending theme. Both songs were written for "Joran" and have a sound that combines Japanese classic music and rock. Both normal and limited edition CD will be released on April 21. On March 24, an original soundtrack containing 41 songs will be released.
Moreover, a manga project is underway for "BookLive".
Goods such as tin badges and face towels will be released after.
Furthermore, on March 27, will hold an "advanced screening & talk show event" where you can watch episodes 1 to 4 before the broadcast.
The lottery applications are being accepted at Bushiroad Music Passport.
And in the fall of 2021, the stage version of this work will also be performed at Meijiza! Please look forward to that as well.
This work, "Joran" is a profound drama that develops speedily.
Stay tuned for upcoming news!
