‘I remember being a lot more nervous than usual when I auditioned for Tsugumomo. So, I went home feeling down and feeling like I didn’t do 100% on that day. So, to be honest I was surprised when I heard that I had passed the audition and would be voicing Kukuri!! I’m happy to be a part of Tsugumomo and will do my best to voice as the dynamic Kansai girl, Kukuri.’
Kokuyou (CV: Eriko Matsui)
Comment from Eriko Matsui
‘I’m Eriko Matsui and I will voice Kokuyou. I’m excited to voice as the cool woman Kokuyou who has an inner fortitude no matter what. I will do my best to make the audience enjoy the anime.’
Chisato Chikaishi (CV: Noriko Shibasaki)
Comment from Noriko Shibasaki
‘I fell in love with Tsugumomo when I read the original manga! So, I’m very happy to voice as Chisato who is pure and always tries hard even though she’s clumsy. It’s my first time to voice one of the main characters of an anime so I’m very excited. I’ll do my best with my love to share the excitement of the anime with audience.’
