Comments from Uchida Yuuma (Theme Song Singer)
I am very glad that "Spin a Roulette" was chosen as the theme song for "Seiyuu Detective"!
I believe that this song is perfect for a drama setting that is filled with mysteries.
Moreover, as the cast members will also dance along with the songs, it make me very happy as I hardly had any chance to see others dance to my song!
So, please enjoy the drama together with the song!
Comments from the producer Sobu Erina
Producer Ooshima from Tohokushinsha Film Corporation said, "Voice actors are actually good at acting!" passionately when he first proposed this project. Since he is from a popular company that has a long history in dubbing movies, so I believe that he has confidence in the acting skill of the voice actors. Thus, this is a drama that was started from that enthusiasm and it also featured a gathering of amazing voice actors. Do look forward to it as secret guests, who are close to the victim, will also appear!
