We start the comment relay of the cast of the TV animation “Kuromukuro” which starts on Thursday April 7th.
Today’s cast is Azakami Youhel who is playing 青馬剣之介時貞 (Ouma Ryunosuke Tokisada)
The cast’s comments relay has been out on the official website of “Kuromukuro”, the anniversary animation commemorating 15 years of P.A. WORKS.
In this project, the cast is going to introduce thindividuale impression of the characters that they are going to play, and make comments for users on the official website before the animation starts broadcasting.
The first comment is from Azakami Youhel who is playing 青馬剣之介時貞 (Ouma Ryunosuke Tokisada).
① What do you think about the character that you are going to play?
Kennosuke is violent and has a bad temper. He is not that kind of person who can be in harmony with others. This Kennoshuke, who does not know how to get along with people is fun to me, but at the same time, I feel like I do not know enough about him, which makes me feel lost. I always remember his basic thought, “a straight belief that never lets you give up in what you believe in”, when I feel lost. When I wonder how to play his role, I try to remember that.
② Please give us a comment for the users before the broadcasting starts.
I bet everyone who is looking forward to the animation is wondering like “what is going to happen when Samurai and robots are combined?!”. I would like you to have such an impression. And I want you to keep watching the story of Kennosuke who is sometimes awkward but lives his life with his strong belief and the story of the people around him, like Yukina, who will be changed step by step, while getting influenced by Kennnosuke. I hope you enjoy the animation. Don’t miss the animation.
Every week, a cast’s comment is going to be up on the official website which is a great opportunity to see their endeavor for the animation. In addition to the comments, you can enjoy some photos of the cast’s subbing scenes!
The animation will be airing in one month.
I would like you to keep checking the upcoming information about “Kuromukuro”!
