【Shimono Hiro's Comment】
I'm the voice actor Shimono Hiro. I will be doing the sound of the AI activation and also the narration of the summary in “Piple” and I was allowed to take a peek at the main work but…
Somehow it makes me want to grin. That is because the main protagonist is Kaji Yuuki-kun after all! I enjoyed doing the recording since it like I am being watched by my relatives!!
This work caught my interest as I have various mutual thoughts such as it possible that such a future exists as the setting takes place in the nearfuture.
It would make me happy if many people will watch “Piple” along with the brave act of Kaji-kun.
Ah, please enjoy my voice alongside Kaji-kun as well!
