Winter 2017 anime Youjo Senki (Saga of Tanya the Evil) recently broadcast its final episode. The official website posted farewell comments from the cast!
Aoi Yuki (Tanya Degurechaff)
‘It was so much fun! Tanya has a variety of facial expressions so working through them was fun and will be a good memory. I hope there will be another chance to play her.”
“Imperial Soldiers! Thanks to your ability, the Empire was able to put an end to the fighting for now! However! The war is not over yet! I expect your dedication until the end!”
Saori Hayami (Visha)
“It was a good working experience, so it is sad that it is over, but the feeling of having surpassed many battlefields stays. I was relieved to see that Visha survived the battlefield. Thank you for watching until the end! I feel like you all are more like comrades, who fought the battle together with us, instead of viewers. Let’s keep Youjo Senki going as comrades!’
Shinichiro Miki (Rerugen)
‘I think the title betrayed the expectations of the anime and presented something heavy. I am happy I recently got to work in many productions that are similar and wouldn’t have caught my attention before. I wonder how the viewers feel.’
Hochu Otsuka (Zetour)
‘Zetour was a tasteful adult and a character I could enjoy. I think the cruelty of humans was portrayed well. While recording, the atmosphere in the studio became thicker because everybody wanted to keep recording more and more but at the same time celebrate the ending. Thank you very much for watching until the end. It seems like the show is receiving good reviews: it is the result of the cast uniting and working together. With your continuous support, who knows, there might be a continuation…? Thank you very much [laugh]’
Tessho Genda (Rudersdorf)
‘Working in the studio was always possible in a comfortable atmosphere. Looking at the finished product, I see the tension of war and the “Monster wearing the skin of a little girl” in a new way. Thank you for supporting us until the end! I think everybody worked hard in this production, but I hope to see Youjo Senki 2 soon.’
‘Youjo Senki’ Season 2?
The performance of the cast made it possible for the viewers to feel immersed into the world of the anime. We share Hochu Otsuka’s sentiment: we at MANGA.TOKYO also hope there will be a continuation!
