One of the 3 Baka DT (3 idiot virgins), who also has bad influence on Junichi. His glasses are his trademark and he is the best speaker among the three of them. Even though he is a virgin, he pretends to know everything about a girl’s heart and love but in reality he takes his knowledge from games and magazines. He is also the one who implanted the idea in Junichi’s head that he could ‘quit being a virgin by kneeling in front of a gal and asking her for help.’
Number two of the 3 Baka DT and a bad influence on Junichi. He is blonde and looks like a delinquent. Among the 3 Baka DT he seems like he’d have the greatest chance with girls, but in the end, he is just one of ‘idiots.’ When he found out that Junichi found a girlfriend, he suddenly turns cold toward him. He changes his mind when he thinks that ‘I might be able to date a gal as well’ and cheers on Junichi.
The last one of the 3 Baka DT and also a bad influence. Unlike the other two, he shows no interest in girls of his age and focuses on younger girls. Since his love for younger girls is bordering pedophilia, Junichi is scared of him getting caught by the police one day. The only thing he is interested in is, whether there are younger girls.
And here are the comments from the cast!
Please tell us your thoughts and impressions after the first recording.
◆ Shintaro Asanuma (Junichi Hashiba)
‘Well, Junichi is always talking because he has so much energy, so after the recording I was a bit tired. The manga author, the director, and screenwriter had a very open mind and even used the ad-libs I said during the test run, so it felt a lot like we created something together. I am looking forward to the involvement of Toyonaga, Akabane, and Shiraishi, We should be able to work hand-in-hand from now on. [laugh]’
◆ Yuki Nagaku (Yukana Yame)
‘For this anime, I am working with experienced voice actors so I was really worried, but Etaeri described the atmosphere of the scenes perfectly so I could relax. Asanuma was more creative than I could have imagined, so the feeling of being a gal came naturally to me. [laugh] I became all excited when I thought about a love comedy with those two characters. And personally I think Junichi’s three friends were hilarious, with all their ad-libs. [laugh]’
◆ Eri Kitamura (Ranko Honjo)
‘Because we attended events together even before the recording, we were able to bond. We could then record with the right feelings in each scene. I was able to do it like always at my own pace but filled with energy.’
◆ Ayana Taketatsu (Yui Kashii)
‘When I saw the recordings of all the unique members of the cast from close up, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud during the funny scenes and my heart beat faster in the sexy scenes! I am looking forward to what the cute gals will be doing next!’
◆ Ogura Yui (Nene Fujinoki)
‘During the first recording I had the impression that they were still introducing the world and characters. I wanted to put my strength together with the rest of the cast and staff and wanted to enjoy the atmosphere of building the characters!’
◆Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Shinpei Sakamoto)
‘The cast is known to be very energetic. There were many scenes that need excitement so the first episode was bustling. [laugh] I think it would be good if we could keep it up for the rest of the work.’
◆ Kenji Akabane (Keigo Ishida)
‘There are still things I don’t understand, but I feel like this will be a fun series. At least working on it is a lot of fun.’
◆Minoru Shiraishi (Minoru Kobayakawa)
‘We get to work very freely and independently. It’s so free, I sometimes get insecure and wonder if it’s all right to work like this. But it feels like this greediness is there to make the series interesting.’
