Character Descriptions and Comments from the Main Cast!
The VA cast members are half a show’s success, and its only natural that they try to give their characters their best performance. Here are some official comments from the seiyuu about the upcoming anime.
Natsuki Hanae: VA for Masamune Makabe
Eight years ago, the protagonist was fat and mercilessly bullied every day; he was being called ‘pig’s feet’. He decided to take revenge on Aki Adagaki for dumping him: he went on a diet and came back as a popular handsome man that now girls go after. He is very determined to stay good-looking and continues to work out daily routines of weight training. He doesn’t want to go back to the old days.
‘I found the story very interesting when I did the audition. I’m going to do my best at the recording and make it more fun for you all! Please look forward to the show!’
Ayaka Oohashi: VA for Aki Adagaki
She called Masamune ‘Pig’s feet’ eight years ago. She is a rich and smart girl and many boys ask her out. However, she hates men and dumps them all. She is also giving them horrible nicknames, and that’s why she received a nickname of ‘Cruel princess’. She is ignorant and often asks Yoshino, her maid, for advice.
‘She looks like a cool beauty, but she actually isn’t and sje has a lot of different charms that can make you smile. I’m so pleased to get to voice her!! I’ll try my best to act this role with various expressions and make her even more charming!!’
Inori Mizuse: VA for Yoshino Koiwai
Her family has been working for the Adagaki family for generations. She looks after Aki. She always stays close to her and gives her advice. She also runs for errands and gets treated horribly by her master. Masamune asks her for some advice about his revenge. She acts innocent, but she has a shrewd and calculating side too. Masamune calls her ‘Master teacher’.
‘I’m Inori Mizuse, and I will voice Yoshino Koiwai. I’m already very anxious to act this role that will be surrounded by various unique characters. I’ll also do my best acting with everyone here! Please look forward to it!’
Suzuko Mimori: VA for Neko Fujinomiya
She is a beautiful girl who suddenly appeared in front of Masamune. She is from a rich family with servants, and goes to school in a limousine with a chauffeur. She keeps her past with Masamune a secret and she is always smiling to everyone. She is a health freak and doesn’t wear any underwear.
‘This role is supposed to be a mysterious pretty girl. I want to have fun dragging Masamune in the fun!’
Azusa Tadokoro: VA for Tae Futaba
She is a kind and caring class representative, and shows Masamune around the school. She has a crush on Masamune and fantasizes about him and her classmate Kojuurou dating as a couple.
‘Tae Futaba is cheerful, caring, and a bit mischievous! I’m so pleased and I am looking forward to acting her role! I’ll do my best to convey her cuteness to you all! Please look forward to it!’
Saori Hayami: VA for Kojuurou Shuri
He is Masamune’s classmate, but often mistaken as a girl because of his looks. He becomes Masamune’s friend and adviser. He is also known as Souuke-no Kojuurou-kyun (総受けの小十郎きゅん | Kojuurou-kyun who accepts both genders).
‘The original story is so interesting that makes you want to keep reading, and I’m already excited about the recording myself to see how the studio is going to animate it. I wish to perfect the role of Kojuurou and work with all the staff and cast members together as a team. Please look forward to the show!’
