"I was excited to take on this challenge, feeling pressure in a good way, because this is a work that has many fans," she said. "Kadode has a little common with myself, and as I played Kadode, I was able to feel the love of time and conversation with the people closest and most important to me in the whirlpool of a world that is undergoing a major change." Meanwhile, Ouran Nakagawa, a high school girl who has been best friends with Kadode since elementary school and is a war game geek who routinely has trouble sleeping, is played by singer ano , who is extremely popular among the younger generation. This is her first anime character role. "Ontan is a lovable character, full of cuteness, but I couldn't help but love her true expressions and emotions that she occasionally shows," she said. "This is the first time for me to act as a voice actor, but Asano-sensei told me, 'ano-chan can play Ontan just as you are,' so I tried to give my all to Ontan."
