<Full comments are below.>
Hoshi Souichirou as Maebara Keiichi
It’s not been so long since I played Keiichi last time, but I was feeling fresh to play him as he will appear in a new character design in the TV series.
The recording sessions went smoothly. The cast remained the same, and I felt Higurashi’s usual atmosphere. I couldn’t believe it was a long time since out last work. (laugh)
Nakahara Mai as Ryugu Rena
I was so happy that I could play Rena with all my heart. I have played her for various adaptation every year, but I realized again how precious it is for me to play with the cast of Higurashi, who built me up.
Yukino Satsuki as Sonozaki Mion, Shion
As for myself, I didn’t feel it was after a long time as I have played for some media adaptation such as games. However, it has been a long time to play with the other cast, so I was really glad and thought, ‘This is it! This is it!’ Not all the cast could get together in this difficult situation, so I’m looking forward to its broadcast.
Kanai Mika as Hojo Satoko
I didn’t feel like it’s been a long time to play Satoko of Higurashi, but…I cannot say anymore…
Tamura Yukari as Furude Rika
It’s been a long time to play her in anime, but I have been playing her for years, so I didn’t feel like it’s after a long time. I was really glad to see the rest of the cast.
