Shimono Hiro, Uchida Aya, Okiayu Ryoutarou, Morikubo Showtaro, Fukuyama Jun, and other voice actors have appeared on the quiz program “Nepleague” that was broadcast at 7:00 PM, September 27, on Fuji TV.
“Nepleague” is a TV program featuring the team battle on the “common sense” quiz. The broadcast on September 27 featured the battle between the “Super Popular Voice Actor Team” and the “Anime Lover Team”.
The “Super Popular Voice Actor Team” consists of Inoue Yuusuke (NON STYLE), Shimono Hiro, Uchida Aya, Okiayu Ryoutarou, Morikubo Showtaro, Fukuyama Jun, and Iwai Yuuki (Haraichi) while the “Anime Lover Team” consists of Neptune (Nagura Jun, Harada Taizou, Horiuchi Ken), Ikoma Rina, and New York (Shimasa Kazuya, Yashiki Hiroma).
The 1st stage is “Hyper Five League”, where each member has to answer a single letter to form a 5-letters word to answer the question that can be from any category. There were questions regarding the anime “Prince of Tennis” that Okiayu voiced the character Tezuka Kunimitsu and the Olympics.
The “Super Popular Voice Actor Team” has made a great blunder when the chemistry question appeared. When Iwai voiced out the reckless request, “Everyone please apologize in your character voice”, Uchida (known as the voice of Minami Kotori from the anime “Love Live!” and Kaban from “Kemono Friends”) apologize (!?) with “Please don’t eat me~!” in Kaban voice. The scenes where everyone retorts with “That is not an apology!” can also be seen. Then, Morikubo Showtaro (known as the voice of Nara Shikamaru from “NARUTO” and Shigeno Gorou from “Major”) appeared and revealed the voice of a certain famous character for the sake of Ikoma, who is a big fan of Morikubo, and the appearance of the excited Ikoma can also be…. This is the first appearance in 9 years for the anime-lover Ikoma and she is aiming to have her revenge toward her previous appearance.
For the 2nd stage, the performers have to write out the Kanji (Chinese character) of the famous J-POP’s lyric along with the song, “KaraKan League”. The opening theme of the anime “Tokyo Revengers” and YOASOBI’s “Monster” were broadcasted. Can the “Super Popular Voice Actor Team” be able to answer it correctly when it comes to the famous song of the anime? In contrast, the “Anime Lover Team” are in a pinch as they are making consecutive mistakes for the song of the anime “Digimon Adventure”!
During the 3rd stage, “Hyper Bomber”, where the performers have to answer the general knowledge questions that have more than 10 answers in the given time limit, Ikoma has showed off a… What is the meaning behind the shocking statement of “I don’t need any appearance fee”…? Which team will be able to ride on the trolley of the bonus stage after winning the final stage!?
