Hanazawa Kana (Nojima Hijiri)
I like how she honestly live, like how Hijiri is taking a fighting pose throughout her life while smiling. I remember how I was always nervous when I was both a student and a professional children actor.
I was glad to play Hijiri’s episode that I cried when I read the original manga, for the drama CD coming with the package gift.
I am looking forward to the broadcast with “Kageki Shoujo!!” fans.
Komatsu Mikako (Nakayama Risa)
Behind the curtain of the bright stage, the expectation and hope, hard work and tears, resignation, and despair, and friendship and love of the dreaming girls do exist. With mixture of emotions, the girls will make you addicted to the way they work hard and growing up beautifully and strongly!
Although I am in the different field, I think the anime is similar by how they learn to act, make up the work together, admire, or be jealous of the talents, and the way how we also struggle and work together. The energy produced by dreaming girls are infinite! Welcome to Red Flowe Opera Company! Please look forward to it!
Terasaki Yuka (Takei Tomomi)
Why do they came to Red Flower, why do they chose this career?
Although they faces the obstacles, with the strong passion and respect for the stage, the way the girls growing up by facing with themselves, will give you the braveness to take a small step and the opportunity to relearn about yourself.
I was always excited when reading the original manga.
All characters are charming! This is the best company!
I was so lucky that I could live a life as Takei Tomomi.
I am certain that there is a girl who will catch your heart! Please look forward to watch “Kageki Shoujo!!”.
