Shimono Hiro as Jean Otus
Congratulations on the 5th anniversary of ACCA!
I can’t believe it’s been that long already… From my point of view before recording, Jean Otus was a character that was a new frontier for me.
It was because I met Jean that I was able to broaden my range of expression, and that has led me to where I am today… When I think about that, I am truly happy that I met Jean and the work of ACCA!
Although the anime “ACCA” itself has ended… I personally hope that I will be able to play as him again with another opportunity…
Please continue to support “ACCA”! Thank you very much!
