"On that day, when I lost everything..."
The PV, which begins with the narration of the main character "Yukimura Sakiha" played by Suzuko Mimori, a young girl staring at the "marauder" is projected behind the flames of Guren. And it becomes clear that is aiming for revenge.
The next scene was "Meiji 64".
"Another Japan" where the Tokugawa Shogunate was not destroyed in the Meiji Restoration and Tokugawa Yoshinobu kept his power.
It developed as a glittering metropolis that fused modern science with the culture of the Meiji era.

* Overseas broadcast is also announced
A beautiful woman "Yukimura Sakiha" becomes the assassin of the dark organization "Nue", which belonged to the Tokugawa government.
The next announcement was about the world view and the main characters.
This work is a story set in 1884, which was developed through science and the theory of Yin and Yang.
In this world, the battles between the dissident organization Kuchinawa, which aims to overthrow the government, and the dark organization "Nue", which was entrusted with the extermination of Kuchinawa, unfold in the darkness of the city.
Mimori Suzuko plays Yukimura Saki, who has a double life of the owner of an antiquarian bookstore in daily life, but and is the assassin who belongs to Nue at night.
She belongs to the "blue-blooded clan" with special powers, but her parents were murdered by the Kuchinawa chief "Janome" when she was a kid, so now she becomes a revenger looking for a Janome.
According to Mimori-san, it was such a difficult role that she put every effort as if she had worn away her life, and at the end of the recording, she was always doubting, "Was it good?"
Tsukishiro Makoto, played by Aoi Shouta, is a beautiful woman dressed as a man. She is usually a bandoneon player, but she is also an assassin of Kuchinawa.
She is good at deceiving people and never shows her true intentions. Aoi-san commented that he was expected to understand Tsukishiro's feelings because he often plays a female character. Her sense of mission was renewed.
Hanafu Elena, played by Raychell-san, is an assassin of "Nue" who is a well-known novelist and also a prostitute. She is an emotional, annoying, hedonist who is loyal to her desires.
Raychell-san's first impression of Elena was just "sexy," and she was wondering how she should act. She seems to be enjoying dubbing while receiving the advice of her performance.
Nakamura Asayo, played by Itou Ayasa, is a 7-year-old girl. Although Yukimura Sakiha killed her parents, she is an innocent child who is protected by Yukimura and lives with her. She is a solid person who handles both storekeeping and housework, and she is a unique person whose "world in which she lives" is different from the members of other assassins so far.
Itou-san explained that for that purpose director told her to be "innocent" one.
Hitoshi Kuzuhara, played by Chikahiro Kobayashi, is a person who "exists to protect Tokugawa Yoshinobu." He is the chief of "Nue" and has darkness in himself, but according to Kobayashi-san, he will be spoiled if he thrusts further. It seems that every character has various things, and it is curious about the human drama around that.
Music & Goods information

Both songs were written for "Joran" and have a sound that combines Japanese classic music and rock. Both normal and limited edition CD will be released on April 21.

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!

LONGMAN Ba/Vo Sawa Comment
We are so happy that our song "Hello Youth" has been chosen for "Laid-Back Camp△2" and that we will be in charge of the second season following the first season! I think this song is not only fun but also heartbreaking, and I think it will be a good match for "Laid-Back Camp△". I hope you'll enjoy LONGMAN's "Hello Youth" along with this drama!
As in season 1, we will be filming this drama as faithfully as possible to the original comic, with special attention paid to the locations. Watching the drama will make you want to go camping. Even if you don't go, you will feel like you have. The spectacular scenery depicted in the original comic will be delivered to you in the form of actual footage. It is a new kind of relaxed camping drama that depicts the charm of camping and the relaxed daily lives of high school girls who enjoy camping. Please enjoy the changes in the relationship between Rin and the four girls over the course of Season 1, the unchanging relaxed camping at the new campsite, and the dusty daily lives of the five girls.

Voice actress Uchida Maaya has been chosen as the MC for the new TV program "Moviekyun", which will start on February 17, 2021 on TBS. She will perform as MC together with actor Kaneko Daichi.
This is a program where Uchida and Kaneko, who are popular in different fields, delve into the appeal of the latest recommended movies. Besides introducing the "heart-throbbing" points of the latest movies, the program will deliver full of valuable footage such as exclusive original interviews that the program owns and undercover reports from the shooting sites.
In the studio, the two MCs, who are both fascinated by movies, will talk about the movies, drawing the viewers to encounter wonderful movies.
This is the first time for Uchida and Kaneko to team up. Before the recording, Kaneko looked very nervous and said, "I'm really nervous. I feel shaky." So, she suggested that they should call each other by nicknames to ease his tension. Pay attention to the nickname of Kaneko, who kindly agreed to it, happily saying, "Sounds great." We also received comments from both of them.
The new program "Moviekyun" will start on February 17, 2021 on TBS. The first episode will feature "Jukai-mura", a horror movie about real-life haunted places currently in theaters, and introduce "Hinomaru Soul: The Heroes Behind the Scenes", a movie starring Tanaka Kei to be released in May.
Uchida Maaya's Comment
One of the things that makes my heart "throbbing" when I watch movies is the way the music comes in. I love the moment when the ending comes and the theme song is played softly, and my heart gets carried away. I could tell that Kaneko-san was very nervous before the recording started, and I wondered how I should talk to him. However, after the actual recording, I realized that it was going to be fun. I hope you'll look forward to finding out what new aspect of Kaneko-san we can bring out in the future......!
Kaneko Daichi's Comment
When I heard that I was going to be the MC, I was like, "What? Me?" I was practicing with the script before the recording, but something didn't feel right, so I went through a lot of trial and error, and it was time to start recording...... After all, things don't go well when you practice (dry laugh). I was really nervous about my first recording, but it was a lot of fun. I like talking very much ......, but my MCing today was not good at all, I should have been doing better....... But, I have no regrets. I wish I could have been more relaxed, but I did 100% of what I could do! I think I got a little used to it after the first recording, so I think I'll be able to relax a little more in the future. I'll do my best to introduce the charm of movies to the viewers of the program!
The cast members of the TV anime "Platinum End", broadcast scheduled in autumn 2021, have been announced. The cover of the final manga volume has also been revealed.
"Platinum End" is the latest work of Ohba Tsugumi (story) and Obata Takeshi (Illustration), who produced "DEATH NOTE" and "Bakuman". The story starts when a young boy, who plans to jump off a building after feeling despaired about everything, encounters the single-winged angel.
The cast members are Irino Miyu and Ogura Yui. Irino will voice the main protagonist "Kakehashi Mirai", who obtained the "Angel's Wing" and "Angel's Arrow" from Nasse, while Ogura will voice the special-rank angel "Nasse", who is helping Mirai to have a wonderful life.
The comments from the two have also been released.
Moreover, the cover of the original comic "Platinum End Vol. 14" and "DEATH NOTE Short Stories Compilation", which will be released on February 4, 2021, have been revealed. This will be the final volume of "Platinum End" that was serialized on "Jump SQ." from November 2015 to January 2021.
"DEATH NOTE Short Stories Compilation" is the latest "DEATH NOTE" comic that fans have anticipated from 14 years ago.
TV anime "Platinum End" will start broadcasting in autumn 2021, on TBS and other channels.
Irino Miyu, voice of Kakehashi Mirai
Despite the fantasy elements, the inner conflict and their daily life are quite realistic. What's living? What's death? Just when we are trying to avoid those, we won't able to avert our eyes after being struck with "What will you do?". I attended the audition with the determination of "Kakehashi Mirai is someone only I can voice". So, I will appear even if it costs my soul.
Ogura Yui, voice of Nasse
This time, I am in charge of the voice of the special-rank angel Nasse. When I was being offered an audition, I had the thought of "I really want to voice her!", so I was extremely happy that I got the role. The "life and death" of a human and angel. What's the true "happiness"? Despite the fantasy elements, the story will attract you naturally as it might happen around us as well. I will attend the recording by getting close to the work's setting and character while enjoying it as well.
