Comments from cast
Minami Shinoda as 木幡真琴(Makoto Kowata)
Q．The impression of Mokoto in a work of “Flying Witch”.
A．I felt like I am spending same time in the same pace as the piece which has a slow flow of time.
I got excited to imagine a life where “witches and magic” are integrated into an ordinary life, thinking of the existence of witches in today’s world.
Makoto is “cute just like a girl” and she must be a girl who is perceived to be cute even from a girl’s point of view, like the point that she is a bit clumsy.
Q．Tell us your enthusiasm.
A． I am Shinoda Minami, I am going to play Kowata Makoto! I am truly happy to be given the role of Makoto!! I felt that all characters are relaxed in their lives, so I will try to show Makoto’s good points while relaxingly playing her role! I am already excited just by imagining animated characters. I look forward to working for the series!
Eri Suzuki as 倉本千夏(Chinatsu Kuramoto)
Q．Tell us the impression of Chinatsu and the piece “Flying Witch”.
A．“Flying Witch” is a very relaxing story that has two notions – a peaceful daily life and witches – are integrated nicely.
It is very interesting that you can see the detailed emotions and reactions of characters because the story is peaceful.
Chinatsu-chan is a innocent girl and a “symbol of peace” You will know what she is thinking easily.
Q, Tell us your enthusiasm.
A．The story should impress you because of the warm-hearted human relationship of characters.
I would love to play Chinatsu with joy, having her point of view and thinking what scenes she is enjoying. And also, I would like to visit Aomori prefecture!! I would like to try gardening and feel the earth and I want to tell audiences about the comfort that you can get from nature. Please don’t miss it!
Shinsuke Sugawara as 倉本 圭(Kei Kuramoto)
Q．Please tell us the impression of Kei and the “Flying Witch”
A．I was impressed by how this wizardly and lovely life and the unique characters are interesting and how they make me feel peaceful. Kei is basically a brother who lives in his own way, but in this piece, he is a lovely character, showing lots of new aspects such as telling jokes, quipping cleverly and cooking and working on a farm.
Q．Tell us your enthusiasm.
A. I am going to put my heart and soul into my act for the viewers to enjoy the work’s unique world and atmosphere. And I will do my best to tell you all about the attractiveness that Kei has. I am looking forward to working for the series.
