[Comment from Itou Sairi, playing the part of Vic]
It was decided that I would play the role of the voice of Vic this time, and I’m full of both tension and excitement at the same time. It is such a memorable work where people around me, such as my mother and others of that generation who saw it when they were young, can feel the excitement of those days again! I will also do my best to create a wide range of fun for the children of the current generation as well as people of my generation! Please look forward to what adventures the wise and courageous Vic will have to overcome as various crises and adventures unfold!
