Now it is up to Makoto's lover and bodyguard, Kintaro, to protect him from the heinous horde of teachers and students from Onodera Academy and even an assassin sent from Karakawa, the school's branch location.

Mar. 13 is Hatano Wataru-san's birthday. He debuted as a voice actor in the 2000s and won the Rookie Male Voice Actor of the Year in the 2nd Seiyu Awards. From 2019 to 2020, he voiced the characters from titles such as "Ensemble Stars" and "Twittering Birds Never Fly". Here at Anime!Anime!, we have conducted the same survey as last year asking, "Who is you favorite character voiced by Hatano Wataru-san?" to celebrate his birthday. We have received 230 votes during the voting period from Feb. 25 to Mar. 3. Many of the respondents were female with the gender ratio at 15% male to 85% female, and the age group was on the younger side with 40% under 19 and 40% in their 20s. ■Yaotome Gaku from "Idolish7" received almost half of all the votes! Taking 1st place was Yaotome Gaku from "Idolish7". He received roughly 45% of the votes making the victory even more overwhelming than last year. Yaotome Gaku is the leader of the popular idol group TRIGGER. Comments such as "I like his straightforward and earnest personality. His good looks and his leadership in TRIGGER make him so attractive" and "He can say things with a straight face that other people would be too embarrassed to say and that makes him so awesome!" show that his manly personality makes him popular. There was also a comment mentioning him working at a Soba shop, "It's amazing how he switches from idol mode, Soba shop mode, off mode, and so on, according to each situation." Coming in 2nd was Utsuki Chikage from "A3!" with roughly 8% of the vote which made him rise significantly in the ranking from last year's 7th place. Utsuki Chikage, who is a member of Spring Troupe of MANKAI Company, is a character with a mysterious charm. He received comments such as, "His secret behind his smile makes him mysterious and it really matches Hatano-san's mature tone of voice," and "I love the duality of his painful past and his elusive personality!" Another comment says, "My favorite solo track is 'Petenshi no Yuuutsu'," shows that his singing voice is also highly praised. 3rd place went to Oda Nobunaga from "Nobunaga no Shinobi", with roughly 5% of the vote keeping him at the same position as last year. He played a different Nobunaga than the usual history-based works and received comments such as "I like how he loves sweets even though he's a warlord from the Sengoku era," and "Hatano-san's vintage but warm voice goes really well with Minase Inori-san as Chidori." The series being a long run with 78 episodes may be another reason he left a strong impression. ■Here are some comments for other characters!! For Gajeel Redfox from "Fairy Tail", "He starts off with the worst relationship possible with Levy, but my heart was beating so fast as they start to open up to each other." For Fuzuki Kai from "Tsukiuta. The ANIMATION", "He well expresses a 'Summer Man' vibe born in July and it's so cool."

He's definitely the No. 1 character I want as a big brother." He's passionate, cool, kind...

"Baki Hanma" will be exclusively streamed worldwide on Netflix in the fall of 2021. <Full comments are below> Shimazaki Nobunaga as Baki Hanma Here we go! The anime "Baki Hanma" is about to start! From the very beginning, the famous scenes and lines of the series raised my spirits. There is no doubt that this work will be interesting, so please look forward to it. Well, Oliva is strong, cute, and cool, so he is unbearable, really. Otsuka Akio as Yujiro Hanma Baki will finally fulfill the promise of the decisive battle with Yujiro in those series! Until then, there will be many twists and turns, and when are they going to have great fights... Yujiro is swimming in the torrent pool, and Baki is fighting the mantis, and the scene continues to fly, so please look forward to it! Otsuka Hochu as Oliva Biscuit Just a little bit before the release. Thank you to all the Baki fans who have been waiting for that day for a long time. Oliva, who I fell in love with, flaps again with a lot of novel charm. She's charming and fragile, but she's ridiculously sharp, and above all, strong! It's my pleasure to play Oliver. I am truly happy to be able to deliver this work and the passion I put into Oliva! Hashi Takaya as Gerry Strydum Strydum... The first impression was the muscular and tough-to-deal-with father. However, this old man is quite interesting. He can be crazy or spoiled depending on the person and the situation. Maybe we have something common~ That's right! I am also a strange old man (laughs). Han Megumi as Rumina Ayukawa The day when I participate in the "Baki" series came. What an honor! Rumina is in a position like those who see this work and Baki for the first time. When I saw the script in which Baki, Rumina, and Mantis continued to line up, I was excited to see how such a profound and truly approaching story could be spun with a limited number of characters. That mantis story is famous throughout the series, and it's the truth. Stay tuned for this work too! (C) Itagaki Keisuke (Akita Shoten) / Baki Hanma Production Committee

The 3rd season of the TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" has started broadcast on Oct. 12. In the first episode, new sextuplets that are suitable for the Reiwa era had appeared. Comments from the cast members, including Hanae Natsuki, Ishikawa Kaito, Shimazaki Nobunaga, and others, who played the new sextuplets, have arrived. The TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" is based on Akatsuka Fujio's famous gag manga "Osomatsu-kun". It is a story about sextuplets who are the main characters becoming sloppy adults called useless neets. As usual, the 1st episode is an unprecedent story that develops from current affairs to harsh black jokes. Among them, the appearance of "new sextuplets" became a hot topic on the SNS. The setting art is the same as the usual sextuplets, but they appear more stylish in the hoodie and tuxedo.. Instead of the old sextuplets, the new characters that fit the Reiwa era that appeared, are voiced by current popular voice actors. Hanae Natsuki as the new Osomatsu, Ishikawa Kaito as the new Karamatsu, Shimazaki Nobunaga as the new Choromatsu, Matsuoka Yoshitsugu as the new Ichimatsu, Uchida Yuma as the new Juushimatsu, and Murase Ayumu as the new Todomatsu. Moreover, comments from the new cast of the sextuplets have arrived. After recording the 1st episode, Hanae said, "I had a mysterious sense of accomplishment ", Uchida added after reading the script, "I ended up appearing in a ridiculous work", and other BTS (behind-the-scene) comments have been received. The 3rd season of the TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" is currently being broadcast on TV Tokyo and other channels. New Osomatsu: Hanae Natsuki I was thinking about what role I've got, but when I opened the script, I immediately closed it because I didn't understand a single thing. I went along with the flow during the recording for the 1st episode. There were some ambiguous moments which I didn't really understand New Karamatsu: Ishikawa Kaito Even before I became a voice actor, I loved Nakamura Yuichi's acting and longed do the same thing. Right now, while working as a voice actor with the support and interactions with many people, I have the opportunity to meet with Nakamura-san, but I do not know that my admiration will remain. When I heard about the cast and about the role of new Karamatsu, I thought about being the successor of Karamatsu-san played by Nakamura-san. Together with the Nakamura-san's acting nuance from the personality of Karamatsu, I expanded the image of Yu-chan in myself to the limit and opened the script in a perfect posture. The first line was, "What is this...". The second was "Not good...". It didn't make much sense. All the emotions other than interesting were blown away by the sense of this work. Bye bye. New Choromatsu: Shimazaki Nobunaga As expected, no, it was more than what I had expected. After reading the script of the first episode, I couldn't stop laughing. The casts of the new sextuplets are also wonderful members, and I enjoyed the recording sessions very much. It was an honor for me to be entrusted as the new Choromatsu. New Ichimatsu: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu I played, thinking, "Maybe this is a future of 'Osomatsu-kun'?" Please check out our version of "Mr. Osomatsu" As for the impression of the first episode, I was surprised... It's messed up (laugh) After the recording was over, I felt comfortable and strangely tired (laugh). New Juushimatsu: Uchida Yuma After seeing the previous seasons for reference, I read the script for the first episode... This guy is hopeless. I ended up appearing in a ridiculous work. References from previous seasons are no longer helpful (laugh) What exactly is "Mr. Osomatsu"? I hope you will find the answer in this 3rd season. New Todomatsu: Murase Ayumu I watch it in advance and felt the energy and fun of the work, so I honestly felt the pressure from acting the new sextuplets (laugh). At the same time, I was happy to be honored and entrusted with that role. The recording itself was quite fun, so I hope it will leave an everlasting impression on everyone!
