[Bakuraku: Kaede Yuasa]
My name is Kaede Yuasa and I'll be playing the role of Bakuraku.
When it comes to Tsugumomo, I really love the contrast between the casual fun scenes and the serious battle scenes, I'm looking forward to recording every scene along with reading the original!
I think Bakuraku is the perfect cute dream guide to help you all along, so I'll do my best so she can even appear and help you out even when you're troubled in your sleep!
[Kyouka: Sora Tokui]
I'm happy to be able to join the world of Tsugumomo! This is the anime's second season, and as such it's a work that's already beloved by many people, so I'm a little nervous, but also looking forward to it. I will try my hardest to bring out Kyouka's charm. First of all, I think there'll be some really cool battle scenes, so I want to show of Kyouka's strength! Thank you!
