【Hayami Saori, playing Uzaki Tsuki】
Tsuki-san is always kind, friendly, and cute when she gets panicked to help others. I enjoyed playing such a character.
The gap between the monologue in her head and her actual behaviors is very interesting, so please enjoy it through communication between Hana-chan and Sakurai-kun.
Hello both to my fans and to whom I see for the first time!
My name is Kano, and I will be playing the opening theme song for "Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!" called "Nadame Sukashi Negotiation" together with Uzaki-chan.
The song is super catchy, and little annoyance is very addictive that makes you repeat the song over and over, so please get addicted to it together with the anime itself!
Please look forward to it!
