Nojima Kenji’s comments
I immediately attended the recording session after I received the offer, and since this is my first recording, I didn’t have much time to read the original work and only rely on the online information board and script to create my role. Even after I had received some guidance from the director and trying out the various methods, I am unable to get into the role properly. However, when I requested “I have grasped the output, so please guide me on the input” to the director, he guides me on the personality of the character, and it went well afterward. It was quite difficult, but I appreciate this good experience from the extravagance recording session.
This will be a memorable role. So, please look forward to it.
