Q1. Can you please tell us your impression on this work.

The T-dolls have the name of a gun. They have a cute appearance and seem adorable, but each of them has various thoughts toward the battle. Why do they fight? How are they thinking about their comrades? I will watch over this drama that revolves around the fierce battles of the T-dolls as the commander.

Q2. Can you please tell us your impression toward your characters as well as your ardor toward the role.

Gentiane gives off a daring impression during her appearance scene, but I feel that she has a burning passion despite being calm. Her interaction with the T-dolls and the war tactic are all filled with her thoughts. I will do my best together with her as we shared the fights, troubles, and bright hope with each other! Please do look forward to the broadcast.

【Kalina, voice by Touyama Nao】

Q1. Can you please tell us your impression on this work.

I had been involved with “Girls’ Frontline” for a long time, but I feel that this anime is the most hardcore and stylish work among the series. I was drawn into the world of this work immediately from the moment the opening theme song is played. Please do check out the elegant yet professional appearance of the T-dolls!

Q2. Can you please tell us your impression toward your characters as well as your ardor toward the role.

Kalina has shown her excellent side as the supporter of Gentiane. Despite working in a tense place, she is able to remain being funny and optimistic. However… she is able to be unexpectedly frank regarding the life and death of T-dolls. I am able to understand that that is the norm in that world, but I found it hard to insert that in my acting. During the recording, it was quite profound that each position can be seen clearly along with the in-depth of the world of “Girls’ Frontline”.

It has been announced that Team Shachi will be handling the ending theme of the anime “Girls’ Frontline”. As the game and anime of this series have a firm world setting, I was quite excited as the “Girls’ Frontline” will mark the start of the new page for Team Shachi’s song. At the same time, I also feel the pressure, in a good way, of not wanting to disappoint the fans and wanting them to acknowledge our song. So, I hope that you are able to enjoy this song together with the anime♪
