-Please tell us how you felt when your appearances as the Ethan in the Japanese version of "Dragon's Dogma" was decided.
I was dubbing Pawns in the game, so I thought I'll be aawn. I was surprised when I heard what role I got.
If it's a pawn, it's a system that allows you to choose a role from quite a few different variations, so it may have been more difficult than having me play Ethan in this film in a different way.
-This work will be streamed to 190 countries on Netflix, so please send a message to domestic and oversea fans who are looking forward to it.
I felt that the dark fantasy essence of the game has been shown more deeply and emotionally in the anime.
Although there are many shocking scenes, I think it is a story that makes you think and can be enjoyed with or without gameplay.
