The three heroines are all attractive. I'm also looking forward to seeing their adventures.
Matsumoto Sara as Higurashi Towa
I'm Matsumoto Sara and I play the role of Higurashi Towa of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon”.
When I heard that I had been chosen to play Towa, I was reallyhappy and a little nervous at the same time.
I would like to keep what is handed down from “Inuyasha” in mind, and create and show you the life of the half-human and half-demon girls. Please looking forward to seeing it!
Komatsu Mikako as Setsuna
“Inuyasha” was a trigger of Chuni(to begin doing something stupid like middle school students do) for me without any doubt.
It was an honor even to get a chance to have an audition, so I didn't expect that I could win. However, as I wanted to try as hard as I could, I spent so much energy and time on reading the whole volume again. Sessyomaru's daughter. Astonishment and mystery. The one to be descended from her. I hope I can be a bridge to the new generation!
Tadokoro Azusa as Moroha
The TV anime “Inuyasha” aspired me to becoming a voice actress. When I was a child, I went into an old well as I felt as if I would have been able to time travel to the Sengoku period, where Inuyasha and others exist. (laugh)
I failed at that time, but I'm really moved that I can go to the world of Inuyasha as a voice actress today.
The story is very intresting, so I'm also excited as one of the fans.
I'll do my best to play cheerful Moroha. Please looking forward to it.
