Below are the comments from the three leading actors.

[Yome Nuzaki (Azalea)]
・ Impression of the work
I was very attracted to the fact that the demon child was the main character. Oni are generally regarded as bad guys, but when you look at things from the demon side, you will find new discoveries, and everyone will be able to accept each other. “Onipan!” Is such an anime. I wondered if there was one.
In addition, you can enjoy and notice the friendship of the three people and the kindness of the people around you!

・ Impressions and enthusiasm for the characters
I think the azalea I’m in charge of is a cute girl who has a lot of emotions, is energetic and positive!
It is very fun to do dubbing because you can feel the intensity of the ups and downs of the emotions and encourage the two people, sunflower and soup, from the dialogue.
I am new to voice acting, and I have a lot of anxieties, but I would like to enjoy improving my level with this azalea. And I want to express my own azalea as much as possible!

[Kokona Nonaka (role of Commelina communis)]
・ Impression of the work
The new anime “Onipan!”, Which we will be participating in this time, is a work in which three very colorful and bright young children make the lives of the viewers colorful and laughable!
Many characters other than these three will appear, so I hope you look forward to each broadcast. It is such a work that is loved by people of all ages.

・ Impressions and enthusiasm for the characters
Tsuyukusa-chan, who I gave her voice to, is a cool and unfussy, blue demon girl who will not be swept away under any circumstances!
She’s always a laid-back Tsuyukusa, but when it comes to food (especially sweets), she loves her tension and smiles.
I’m nervous because I’m doing voice work for the first time this time, but I’m playing while feeling that the character who brought life to life for the first time is Tsuyukusa-chan and I’m really happy.

[Mika Negishi (role of sunflower)]
・ Impression of the work
I think it’s a work that gives courage to the cool and cute little girls working hard for their mission of “improving the image of demons”. At first, I couldn’t imagine when I heard that it was a “demon,” but since I was in the second year of junior high school and was the same age as me, I felt a sense of familiarity. I’m a demon, but like humans, I really like the way they laugh and get angry.
I think that the theme of coexistence of demons and humans can be applied to modern society, so I hope that you will warmly watch over the young children who have strong personalities.

・ Impressions and enthusiasm for the characters
The sunflower I play is a girl in charge of Tsukkomi who is always energetic and boyish and can take the lead. I myself often get courage and love sunflowers.
Also, this is my first job as a voice actor, and although it often doesn’t go well, it’s a very valuable and enjoyable experience to bring the character to life. I would like to continue to absorb various things and power up as the sunflowers grow.
