Waki Azumi comments
Q1: What is your impression of this film?
Since the story is set in an aquarium in Okinawa, I thought it would be a very beautiful and mysterious work. The dialogue between the characters is very funny and heartwarming, but the creatures and scenery of the aquarium are very beautifully drawn, and I could feel the seriousness of the production staff!
I used to visit aquariums casually, but I think I will look at them and the aquarium staff differently in the future!
Q2: Could you give us your impression of the character you play and your enthusiasm for the role?
Tsukimi is always very excited and is the mood maker for Kukuru and the others! She likes to gossip, makes more noise than anyone else, and has a childish side to her, but her motherly side that she sometimes shows is very attractive.
She's a fun character to play because she's a bit of a joke, but she also does a lot of comedy!
Q1: What is your impression of this work?
It's a work that really strikes a chord with my personal taste. These are life-sized girls with their own problems, and the rich nature of Okinawa is expressed in beautiful pictures. I feel that the balance between the theatrical performance and the fantastic parts is exquisite. I also feel that time is flowing very slowly.
Q2: Could you give us your impression of the character you will be playing and your enthusiasm for the role?
Karin, the character I will be playing, is a little older than Kukuru and the others, so she is very strong and reliable.
However, I also feel that she is still young and has a cute side. I would like to play the role of Karin with all my heart, including her gentle side that watches over the aquarium from the outside and supports it at times.
Character Design: U35 Comment
Karin looks like a flower blooming when she smiles, and has a cute older sister image, while Tsukimi's design is more sunny and lively.
