Takanashi Kengo (as Yamabagiri Chouza) comments
–Please tell us your impression of the character you are going to play and your enthusiasm for the role.
My first impression of him was that he was a mass of pride and hard to get to know. However, as I got to know him more and more, he became more and more human, and I now think that he is just too clumsy. I would like to be closer to him than anyone else and play him with care.
–Please tell us about something “hanamaru” that happened to you recently.
I have two cats, and that’s enough to make every day hanamaru! The only problem is that they are very demanding and noisy (lol). They are still cute!
