Finally, Otoppe has become a movie. It stirs many emotions in me when I imagine everyone watching the Otoppe characters come out of the screen. Of course, since it’s Otoppe, there will be lots of sound!
There will be wonderful songs, excitement, and laughter. I’m sure the whole family will be satisfied. Speaking of wonderful, when I heard the voice of Minister Lalalatta, played by Saito Takumi, I thought he was really cool. Stay tuned♪

“Congrats to the movie adaption perarincho♪” So, I’m happy to see both Pepperano and Potrain in the movie! This time, I’m secretly bursting with some improvisations in various scenes, so please look forward to them.
Just between you and me, during a break in the recording, I was looking at Inagaki Kurumi with a smile, who played Lil, as she drew a portrait of Windy, as if she were Potrain. She was pretty good at it…
Papa Don’t Cry!
Bring the whole family to see it♪
