A Comment From Takahiro Sakurai Acting the Main Character Kanade Takahashi!
I’m Takahiro Sakurai, and I’ll be voicing Kanade Takahashi. “First Love Monster” will finally start.
Please don’t judge people by how they look. Don’t judge them one-sidedly. They are putting their full effort to be kids.
Please kindly watch over an odd romantic comedy between a primary school boy and a high school girl.
