Comments from Voice Actor

Q: Tell us your impression of the character you are acting as and what enthuses you most when you are acting him.

A: I am in charge of acting for Imanotsurugi. He is a straightforward and honest child who loves the Saniwa with all his heart. He has a dangerous tendency to push himself excessively for the sake of his Master, who he puts before himself. I hope I can manage to express the charm of his pure-hearted loyalty.

Q: Tell us about any happenings around you lately that feels like "Hanamaru".

A: When I was out for a night stroll, I saw a Me*wth!? Err no, a real cat popped out, and after I played with it for 15 minutes or so, it sort of looked at me and called to me "Nyaaan (come with me)", so I followed it and caught a Pokemon I didn't own. The cat left then. This is what I call "Hanamaru".
