2016.04.04 <PASH! PLUS+>
Twin Star Exorcists' will also have an Exciting Feature in 'Jump SQ' Magazine with a special interview
Long awaited Twin Star Exorcists‘ broadcast premiere is almost here. The final countdown to the anime series is to the anticipated start date of April 6th, 2016, as fans will already know.
Three more characters and cast members have been announced and we have some exclusive comments from the actors themselves. Let’s read what they had to say as we wait in excitement.
Kamui : Yuuki Ono
Responsible for the death of Benio’s parents who were exorcists, Kamui is a powerful Impurity and is part of the Basara Impurity. Though not human, he takes on the form of a human being and is one of the strongest among the Impurities.
＜Comments from Yuuki Ono＞
It is an honor to be able to play the role of Kamui, who holds an important key role in this story. I feel like acting this character and embodying who Kamui is, has been a big challenging experience for me. I hope that by being a part of this wonderful cast, I will grow not only as a person but as a voice actor and I will be able to really capture the imaginative world of “Twin Star Exorcists”. I hope you all enjoy the series.
Shinnosuke Kunizaki : Daiki Yamashita
A young exorcist who lives in the Seika dormitory. He usually teams up with Ryogo and focuses on fighting off Impurities. Intelligent and fully competent, he’s known for his quick wit and comebacks. Usually calm and reserved, he doesn’t say much to the people around him.
＜Comments from Daiki Yamashita＞
I play the role of the boy with the long bangs! You can only see his expressions shown on his mouth, and I can’t help but wonder what his eyes really look like. I think about various things and ways to connect with the character. I think about how his mouth may be smiling but his hidden eyes could be saying something completely different. I hope you guys are excited for the series as we are and hope you’ll be able to fight off the Impurities with us.
Atsushi Sukumozuka : Taishi Murata
Atsushi, a young exorcist, also lives in the Seika Dormitory with Kunisaki and usually teams up with Ryogo’s group. Always the cheerful one in the bunch, he often ends up doing things rather impulsively, instead of taking the time to think through things. He’s usually aloof about things and is known for his stupidity…!?
＜Comments by Taishi Murata＞
When I first got the part, I was extremely excited and after taking a while to let it hit me, I looked up my character’s last name online. The end result was that I couldn’t make sense of any of it. Atsushi is a very active mischievous boy and even in the midst of a serious scene, he’s able to bring life and energy in a different way compared to Rokuro. I hope he’ll be able to team up with Kunisaki and they work hard together. When I first starting reading the original comics, I couldn’t put it down and I’m so pumped to be part of Twin Star Exorcists. I hope you all enjoy it!
