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: He's a grandpa. I want to portray him doing things at his own pace and being fluffy, befitting of a grandpa.

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

A: I get to appear in Touken Ranbu anime. Just right after I gingerly thought "Will I have a part?". Well, in the end I was able to get some screentime so... brilliant, brilliant.**
