Morikawa Toshiyuki as Mukaido Nanato
I’m very honored to be playing as Mukaido Nanato in the anime “Platinum End”.
As one of the candidates for God, he is a person with heavy shackles. The complex setting and worldview that surrounds him is fascinating, and I think he’s a very worthwhile character to play.
I hope I can express the charm of “Platinum End” to the fullest for fans.
Kayano Ai as Baret
Since I was informed that I had been chosen to play as Baret, I have been reading the original story with great excitement. …… Each of the characters’ conflicts are deeply portrayed, and I was immediately absorbed into the story. I’m looking forward to seeing how this world will be portrayed in the anime.
As Baret, I would like to stay close to Mukaido-san and play with care.
