Comments from Kaji Yuuki as Pina.
I have been a fan of “BEASTERS” since before its anime adaptation was announced. I was personally moved to tears after reading it for the first time in a while. I am so glad to be chosen to play Pina in such an anime. Probably, Pina is a man to fascinate everyone. (laugh) However, no one hates him. I played him, keeping myself aggressive as he has brought a breath of fresh air to the story. Please look forward to it!
