<Full comments are below.>The author, HERO.
Congratulations on the “Horimiya” TV anime adaptation!
I’m looking forward to seeing how the illustrations drawn by Hagiwara-Sensei will be.
I’d like to say thank you to all the people that have been supporting us, including the staff and cast.
The illustrator, Hagiwara Daisuke.
I’m so glad that it will be an anime adaptation.
As I look back on the days when its serialization had started, I’m deeply moved.
I’m so grateful and excited to be blessed with the wonderful staff. I’m breathing heavily. I’m also looking forward Hori-san and other characters’ youth story with motion!
Tomatsu Haruka as Hori Kyouko.
I got to be a fan of this work when I read the original, and have been thinking that I want to play Hori-san.
I was very glad to be chosen in the audition.
The two protagonists are balanced like a married couple from the beginning for some reason. Hori-san is frank, kind, and reliable, but sometimes acts girlishly. I will try to play her with my best to draw out her charms.
Uchiyama Kouki as Miyamura Izumi
The original anime depicts the youthful story of the high school characters, and recreates their feelings, which makes me feel fresh.
I will try to recall the memory and feelings from 10 years ago, and play the character so that he seems lively.
