As Kuromukuro‘s official broadcast approaches, the TV anime releases a series of comments from cast members that are now available on the official homepage.
Get an exclusive inside scoop on the cast members and the impressions they had on the characters they played along with other fun details you won’t want to miss! Starting us off with the 1st round of comments is from the main protagonist in the series, Kennosuke Tokisada Ōma voiced by Yohei Azakami.
●Comments by Yohei Azakami (voice for Ōma Kennosuke Tokisada)
①What impression did you have for the character that you played?
Kennosuke’s personality is very rough, short-tempered and is a very awkward sort of person. He is very unaware of his surroundings and I enjoyed embodying that type of characteristic, though at times, I felt like it was easy to lose sight of him as well. Whenever that happened, I reminded myself of his belief in staying true to yourself and standing up for what you believe in. Whenever I struggled playing him, I always tried to go back to this foundation of what he held on to.
②Before the series is broadcast,will you please leave a message to all the viewers and fans?
As the series release is coming back, many of you may be wondering what will happen to the samurai and the warriors. But despite what you may be thinking and wondering, I hope that you are as excited as we are for the series. I also hope you’ll enjoy and embrace Kennosuke for his awkwardness and enjoy seeing him grow as a person and watch him take hold of what is important in his life.
