<Comments are as below>
Ookubo Rumi as Hiiragi Nana
I'm Ookubo Rumi and I'll be playing Hiiragi Nana.
From the moment I read the original work at the audition, I was hooked by the story, and I was so glad to get the role of Nana.
The isolated training school, the children with mystical abilities, the mysterious "Enemies of Humanity", etc. I want to stand by Nana and portray her fighting against the "Enemies of Humanity" and growing up.
I'm nervous since this is the lead role, but I'm also fired up!
I hope you will enjoy the TV anime "Talentless Nana".
Shimono Hiro as Nakajima Nanao
I'm Shimono Hiro and I'll be playing Nakjima Nanao.
I love this type of story, and I hope you will enjoy what the shy, reclusive Nanao brings to the table!
Nakamura Yuuichi as Onodera Kyouya
I read the original work for the first time when I auditioned, and I was surprised by the unpredictable development of the story and was fascinated by the charms of the characters.
It's hard to get rid of the unfriendly image of Kyouya, but he is actually quite reasonable.
I want to well balance the two sides of him.
Takanashi Yasuharu (Team-MAX)
I'm Takanashi and I'll be in charge of the music on "Talentless Nana".
When I was given the offer, I read the 1st volume and I was surprised by the development of the story!! It goes beyond my speculations and though the illustrations are cute, the plot twist is amazing!!
I was drawn into the world of "Talentless Nana" before I knew it, and was absorbed in reading it.
Music-wise, it's been a long time since I last composed suspenseful music.
I was excited to take on the various new challenges.
When the unexpected happens, when somebody's identity is revealed, subtle psychological descriptions, etc.!
I'm sure this is going to be a great piece of work.
Please look forward to the show.
Tomita Miyu as the opening theme artist
I'm Tomita Miyu and I'll be singing the opening theme song of "Talentless Nana".
The other day, I was shown the opening video with powerful images linked to the song, and I'm already looking forward to the broadcast!
The song is a serious, edgy, dark song to match the story. I put my soul into the song and gave it my all to sing it.
I hope you will enjoy the theme song "Broken Sky" along with the anime.
Fujikawa Chiai as the ending theme artist
I'm Fujikawa Chiai and I'll be singing the ending theme song of "Talentless Nana".
It feels good to get outwitted no matter how much you keep your eyes open for plot twists! The story goes beyond my imagination, and I was deceived right from the beginning. This was my first experience to face a protagonist with this mixed feeling of being tricked and bewildered. I should've hated her, but I somehow found myself sympathizing with her. Before I knew it I was completely drawn into the story.
I wrote this song called "Bakemono to Yobarete" (Being called a monster) while looking forward to the development of the story.
The song is about the conflict of those with supernatural abilities and those with none. What will the conflict bring about? I've struggled to get this song finished, and I hope it will reach the hearts of the fans.
