Asakura Yoh: CV Hikasa Youko
Q1. Could you tell us about the charm of this work?
I think that it is because of Takei Hiroyuki's skills in drawing things that are usually associated with the fear, spirits, graves, and Osorezan, in a pop style.
Maybe ghosts aren't scary, but if there are Amidamaru and others, who I would love to meet! I think that the attractive character image is one of the strong points.
I love Yuru, who every time finishes with a gag, and everyone's facial expressions at that moment.
The music is also great, and I remember that Hayashibara-san's songs "Over Soul," "Northern lights," and "brave heart" shook my childhood heart at that time.
Q2. Could you tell us about your feelings for playing the character Asakura Yoh?
To be honest, I felt a lot of pressure!
But I'm the one... I love Yoh, Anna, and their friends, and I want to play Yoh in a way that only I can do.
Some of my colleagues are veterans who I saw before I became a voice actress.
Being surrounded by such people and having a conversation together during recording is a blessed chance that I haven't got before in my acting career.
It would be great if I could be like that, just as Yoh grow little by little and is recognized by the people around.
I will do my best, even if it's hard! Thank you for your support!
Amidamaru: CV Konishi Katsuyuki
Q1. Could you tell us about the charm of this work?
As a guy, I like battles. With enemies who gradually become stronger.
I was especially excited to see what kind of spirits would come out. A spirit is a spirit, so anything is possible, right? LOL
And there are no bad guys. Each person has their own feelings.
And Yoh-kun's way of life is wonderful. "Everything will work out in the end" is a good saying.
Q2. Please give a few words to your fans who are looking forward to you playing Amidamaru again.
As the lyrics of "Over Soul" say, "Revived", this is also thanks to everyone who has loved and supported "SHAMAN KING" for many years. I would like to run through with Haden and Amidamaru. I am looking forward to seeing Amidamaru again.
I'm with you. I'm really excited! Thank you very much! "SHAMAN KING" Thank you! !!
Osorezan Anna: CV Hayashibara Megumi
Q1. Could you tell us about the charm of this work?
Good adjustment, just good adjustment.
True strength, pride, and grace
True kindness, weakness, and escape.
It is a work that shakes the soul that cannot be seen at a glance.
Q2. Please give a few words to your fans who are looking forward to you playing Anna again.
Sorry to keep you waiting.
Somehow, I was chosen again.
I just wanted to relax a bit, but the world isn't so sweet. I'm going to go ahead and tell you.
They're going to do something they don't want to do.
Don't complain about it all over the place where they can't see your face. From the landlady.
Hao: CV Takayama Minami
Q1. Could you tell us about the charm of this work?
Not to mention the charm of the story and characters, I think the charm is that it is full of themes to which you can sympathize with from your own experience. Friendship and love, family and siblings, courage, bonds, strength, etc. I like to see the essence that doesn't change at any time in battle.
It's also great because it's so nostalgic.
Q2. Please give a few words to your fans who are looking forward to you playing Hao again.
Thank you everyone who has been supporting "SHAMAN KING" for a long time. I also missed it when I went to the original painting exhibition and decorating goods, but I never thought that I will play Hao again. I want to turn this luck into power and put up a fight. I'm looking forward to awakening Hao from his sleep. When that time comes ... Thank you for your cooperation.
