Kamio Shinichiro Comment
I’m Kamio Shinichiro , the voice of Ban Nobutaka.
Ban looks terrifying with his pompadour hairstyle but has a quiet voice.
He’s an enthusiastic fan of Yoikoshi but has a quiet voice.
He’s a man with a passionate heart but has a quiet voice.
His chant is a must-listen!
…… Kaba……… ka…… di…… ……i………i………!

Komada Wataru Comment
I have had experience of the game of kabaddi before, as one of my PE teachers in high school was a former player.
I was excited to see an anime based on it, and Seki Ryuta, the character I played this time, has sumo experience and is a hard worker who values communication with others.
He’s also the class clown of the team.
Please look forward to the broadcast of “Burning Kabaddi”!

Murase Ayumi Comment
At first glance, I thought the character was a female assistant of the team! But he’s actually a boy and will get things done when he’s in the mood.
I’ll do my best to capture his character. Here’s my chant! kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi …….
