Sonju: Kamio Shinichirou
I’m Kamio Shinichirou, who is in charge of Sonju in “The Promised Neverland”.
I read this manga many times and cried, and I also watched the first season, so I was really happy when I passed the audition.
Relationship with Musica, the distance between children, and beliefs & suffering as a demon… I will play carefully so that I can firmly deliver the charm of Sonju. Thank you for your support!
Musica: Tanezaki Atsumi
My name is Tanezaki Atsumi and I will play Musica.
Look at the visual. That’s right, she’s a demon.
However, she has a very mysterious life, so I voiced her while paying attention to the nuances of each line.
I had read the original before I got the role, so I get very nervous every time I record it.
But… it’s a Musica. I’ll do my best.
