–Tell us the feeling or enthusiasm for the next series

I think the attractiveness of this anime is the setting, relations of characters and makes you to imagine more and more. I’m looking forward to see how the next series will be animated, because it’s faithfully reflecting and expanding the original story, and deeply focusing to each character.

 –Tell us the attractive point of your character

 I think the attractive point of Klaus is his “gap”. The gap between his body, eyes, fangs and his mind.

 –Please give a message for audiences who are waiting to watch “Blood Blockade Battlefront & BEYOND”

 I’m glad to have a chance to play Klaus again. The conversations between the casts were full of joy for the previous series, so I’m willing to perform him from bottom of my heart, and please be looking forward to watch it! I will answer to your expectations.

–Tell us the feeling or enthusiasm for the next series

“Blood Blockade Battlefront” is one of my favorite products, so I was happy to hear that the project of making next series has started. There are many episodes in manga that I’m feeling attracted and want to play, so I’m looking forward to see which episodes will be selected to be on TV.

–Tell us the attractive point of your character

I think the attractive point of Steven is his “sorrowful eyes”. Plus, his scar (laugh).

–Please give a message for audiences who are waiting to watch “Blood Blockade Battlefront & BEYOND”

I think the previous series, which gained popularity, were made by best efforts of staffs and casts. Even me myself is very much excited to perform again. Please expect the new series “Blood Blockade Battlefront & BEYOND”.
