“Color of Life 2nd Season," a video in which voice actress Hanamori Yumiri makes you feel as if she is your best friend “andamp;rdquo;, has been released. This video, "Color of Life 2nd Season," is the second installment of the "Color of Life" promotional video that was released at the launch of the “ATH-SQ1TW” completely wireless earphones in October 2020. This time, not only Hanamori Yumiri, but also Ono Yuuki, Sakura Ayane, Enoki Junya, Kimura Ryohei, and Furukawa Makoto were used to create a video that expresses the story behind the earphones with their voices. Each of them plays a role in six different situations, including "Date with boyfriend" and "Best friend". The second video, which has been released sequentially since July 12, is the "best friend version" featuring Hanamor Yumiri. It's not the voice of Hanamori-san that you hear as soon as it starts playing, and for a moment you think, "Huh”. At the café where you met up with your best friend “ (CV Mamoru Hanamori), you were waiting to have tea with an employee from your part-time job who was voiced by “that popular voice actor ”. Your best friend said that she admires the senior employee at her part-time job. "She's wondering what she needs to do to become a wonderful person like that”, and you suggest that she studies fashion. Then she says, "By the way, I saw a really cute makeup video the other day. Let's watch it together." She pulls out a pair of earphones from her bag, which are exactly the same as the ones you are using. "She pulls out from her bag the exact same earphones you are using. “ATH-SQ1TW”, and even the color is the same, it’s a miracle. “We really like the same things, don't we?" The cheerful and lively voice of Hanamori-san cheered the listeners up too! The video was fixed so that only the person's hands were shown, and the video was created completely with only the voice of Hanamori-san (plus the employee at her part-time job). Her voice alone is enough to convey the situation and the emotions of her best friend, but combined with the “hand expressions”, the video is even more realistic. After a lively conversation about the earphones, you might think you're going to see a makeup video, but there's a scene where you can't help but giggle at your best friend's …… "food more than sex" attitude. The video makes you feel like you're really having a good conversation with your best friend, so be sure to check it out. The next video, "Sisters" by Sakura Ayane, will be released on Tuesday, July 20 at 6:00 p.m., so look forward to it!

He seems to have something to tell you...... Also, please do not miss the familiar voice of a staff that brings café au lait to the table, disturbing such important words! He started again, saying "This time for sure!", and put the wireless earbuds "ATH-SQ1TW" in front of you. He gave it to you as "a token of his gratitude", but there seems to be a certain reason to have chosen the earbuds...... The video was fixed and recorded to show only the hands, and only Ono-san (+ a cafe staff) speaks in the video. Ono-san's voice solely can convey the situation and the boyfriend's feelings, but the "hands expressions" make the video immersive even more. Ono-san's "...Kawaii (...Cute)" in his sweet voice would make you blush. The video gives you a feeling of being on a date with him, so please try watching it.

Hidaka Rina as Kozakura and Tomita Miu as Seto Akari will appear in the TV anime "Otherside Picnic" (to be released in January 2021). The latest key visual and cast comments have been released along with it. "Otherside Picnic" is a TV anime based on a novel of the same title by Miyazawa Iori published in 'Hayakawa Bunko JA'. The setting is the "Otherside" where dangerous beings from real-life ghost stories such as "Kune Kune", "Shakuhachi", and "Kisaragi Station", appear and is full of mysteries that is side by side with reality. Kamikoshi Sorao discovers the "Otherside" through a door in an abandoned building, where she meets Nishina Toriko, and the two begin their dangerous survival. ...... Two new cast members were announced this time. Hidaka Rina will play Kozakura, a researcher of the "Otherside" who lives in the suburbs of Shakujii Park, and Tomita Miyu will play Seto Akari, a freshman at the same university as Sorao. The "Otherside Picnic" will begin airing in January 2021. ＜The full text of the comments is below. Hidaka Rina as Kozakura I'm Hidaka Rina, and I'm pleased to be the voice of Kozakura. I started to read the original work with my heart beating faster and faster because it was a sci-fi horror story, but I was so immersed in the world of the "Otherside Picnic" that I couldn't stop turning the pages. It's not just a work with horror elements, but also a work that delicately depicts the emotions of the characters, and we put a lot of care into the recording of the dialogue for the anime. I hope you'll look forward to seeing how the characters move in the anime, and how the otherside will be portrayed! Seto Akari Seto as Tomita Miyu I'm Tomita Miyu, who will be playing Akari Seto! From the moment I read the original story at the audition, I was hooked, and I was like, "I want to be in it for sure!" andnd I'm so glad I did! Akari is good at karate, and there is a scene where she fights with it in the anime. I studied karate for six years, so I think I was able to act using my experience. There are many scary scenes that are chilling because the theme is based on monsters, but there are also many heartwarming scenes. Whether you like scary things or not, I hope you will enjoy this anime! (C) Miyazawa Iori , Hayakawa Shobo / DS Lab

Pretty Cure". She will continue to appear in various works such as "SCARLET NEXUS" and "The Rising of the Shield Hero" Season 2.

We received responses from 182 people during the survey period from March 20 to March 27. The male-female ratio is about 55% for males and about 45% for females. About 50% of the age group were teens, and about 30% were in their 20s. ■ New characters are in the top-3! 1st place 1st place goes to Kugisaki Nobara from "Jujutsu Kaisen" with an approval rating of about 27%. Kugisaki Nobara is a first-year student at the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School. Especially many supportive comments were received from female readers, "She's not just a cute heroine, she's more handsome than anyone else! I love the fanning dialogue with her screaming.", "I admire and sympathize with her for her cool way of living that is true to herself. The lines of Nobara-chan in the interleague game were too cool!", and "The voice of Seto-san fits Nobara's cool yankee voice very well, and it's a character that even a woman longs for." A character from A title released in 2020 is topping the list. 2nd place 2nd place goes to Sakurajima Mai from "Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai" with an approval rating of about 22%, down one place from last year. Scenes from the movie are especially popular, "She is a little crazy, but I like the fact that she cares about Sakuta.", "She usually teases Sakuta, but in the movie, I felt her love for Sakuta.", and "I still can't forget the movie scene where Mai talked about her feelings for Sakuta with tears in her eyes." Many men voted for her. 3rd place 3rd place goes to Takizawa Asuka / Cure Flamingo from "Tropical-Rouge! Pretty Cure" with an approval rating of about 14%. Takizawa Asuka is a third-year student at Aozora Middle School. A strong and cool senior character has just been transferred into the fourth Pretty Cure Cure Flamingo in episode 5.

Characters who are looking forward to their future activities are digging into the top-3. ■ Let's introduce other comments! About Ayase Chigaya from "Chihayafuru", "Thanks to meeting Karuta, friends, and teachers, Chihaya's life became richer, and Chihaya always straight and shining brightly." For Miyamoto Konatsu from "TARI TARI", "Seto-san is known for playing many older sister roles in anime, but she played Konatsu gently and softly like a younger sister. She is a good singer. I was surprised! " For Laffinty Fin E Ld Si from "Lagrange: The Flower of Rinne", "She looks cool and capable of everything, but she is a clumsy, spoiled girl who can lose even at simple things, and I want to support her cuteness." For Mirage Farina Jenius from "Macross Delta" they said, "While she is being serious and strict to others and herself, she is clumsy when it comes to romance. It's a wonderful character with a sense of humor that makes you take a step back from yourself." In the 2021 survey, multiple characters with titles broadcast from 2020 to 2021 were ranked in. Please look forward to seeing what characters will be ranked in next year! ■ Ranking Top 10 "Who is your favorite character played by Seto Asami? 2021 Edition" 1st place Kugisaki Nobara "Jujutsu Kaisen" 2nd place Sakurajima Mai "Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai" 3rd place Takizawa Asuka / Cure Flamingo "Tropical-Rouge!
