     Tonkatsu DJ Agetaro, which is running in Shonen Jump+ is about Agetaro Katsumata, a third generation
tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) restaurateur who aims to come of age as both a tonkatsu cook and DJ.

     ◆Impressions and enthusiasm about the character they play:
I think Agetaro is a modern, cheerful young boy. He always complains about his family but also helps them out. At heart, he seriously searches for excitement through his tonkatsu, along with passionately trying new things to broaden himself. I really hope I can express this well through my performance!

     ◆Message to viewers:
Because it’s a short form anime, it’s got a real nice tempo and I think watching it will make people feel good. I think after watching this anime, everybody will come out feeling nice and crispy!

     Koji Ishii (as Agesaku Katsumata)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
If I had to sum him up, he’s a stubborn old codger devoted to his craft. However, since this is directed by Akitaro Daichi, it can’t be that simple, now can it? I’m really grappling with how to make this stereotypical character less of a stereotype.

     ◆Message to viewers:
This seems like a show that the music industry would be chomping at the bit to get involved in, so I look forward to seeing how it turns out along with the music. I hope that everyone is looking forward to it.

     Kenjiro Tsuda (in the role of Shugo Shinobuhori)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
Shinobuhori is pretty flashy, but is a nice guy who takes life at his own pace. He likes to keep it loose and easy, so I’ll try hard to……not try hard, I guess. (laughs).

     ◆Message to viewers:
I hope people will enjoy the show with a bunch of grins and chuckles! Thanks for your support!

     Kenji Fujiwara (as DJ Oily)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
He looks unreliable but is a decent guy. I’ll do my best to try to capture the magic of the comic and vision of the director.

     ◆Message to viewers:
The show should be pretty interesting. I hope everyone watches, including my performance.

     M · A · O (as Sonoko Hattori)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
Sonoko Hattori is a fashionable girl, and seems like a bright and cheerful girl. I will do my best to bring out my character’s charm.

     ◆Message to viewers:
Reading it, I got the feeling that it makes you want to look forward to and embrace your challenges in live. Plus it burns calories (laughs). Please look forward to see how it comes across in the anime!

     Takashi Matsuyama (as Goro Mizokuro)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
I hope this anime airs for 10 years! Maybe then I’ll figure out why women are afraid of me! Yo, Apache! Let’s Go!!

     ◆Message to viewers:
Hey, guys. This anime’s the real deal. You won’t be able to get enough of it!

     Chafurin (as DJ Big Master Fly)

     ◆ Impressions and enthusiam about the character they play:
Legendary DJ Master Fly definitely comes off like a God or The Buddha. I’m trying to play him with a mysterious feel.

     ◆ Message to viewers:
I love tonkatsu myself and eat at this super tasty restaurant once a week. I hope everyone really gets excited with the tonkatsu and music!
