Stephen Lambiel’s comment
About his guest appearance
‘I love Yuri!!! on ICE and the characters Victor and Yuri. I thought that the relationship between the two was wonderful. I feel inspired by their attitudes like working together and encouraging each other. It isn’t only fans of figure skating, of course, but the skaters themselves who are inspired. I think that this anime has brought a lot of new fans to the world of figure skating.’
Impression of the recording
‘The recording studio was amazing. I was a little nervous because I couldn’t predict what the work would be like, but I was able to record faster than I thought. The results are good! Also, the atmosphere of the staff of Yuri!!! on ICE was very comfortable, and I was delighted to see them. I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity.’
