Irene Adler, voiced by Hikasa Youko

I’m Hikasa Youko, who will be voicing Irene.
I started to read the original manga during the audition, and I got attracted to the beautiful art and the unpredictable future developments.
Irene is strong-willed, refreshing, and brave enough to wander from place to place in different occupations and genders.
I enjoyed voicing this unrestricted character as she sometimes showed a mature expression while at other times, a mischievous expression.
Do look forward to the developments of Irene in her participation in the mental warfare of the Moriarty family and Sherlock as well as her interactions with them.
