Furukawa Makoto as Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes is a well-known detective. Little did I dream that I would be able to play such a character. You will see who Sherlock is if you watch the 6th episode. I am looking forward to playing him, who seems frivolous and hot-tempered. Thank you.
Ono Yuki as John H. Watson
When the main cast was revealed, I thought ‘Wow! The cast seems nice! I want to join them!’, and I got an opportunity to take an audition. I am so blessed that I was chosen to play John. Furukawa-kun’s birthday was coming up, so I brought him a gift. The recording was really peaceful. Everything will start here! We will give it our best shot as Makolock and Onoson.
