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: When I first performed him, I strongly felt the [transience] and [loneliness] that burdened him. However because this time he'll communicate directly with other Touken Danshi, I'm anticipating how will [Hanamaru] Souza become myself.
Q: Tell us about any happenings around you lately that feels like "Hanamaru".
A: One morning as I was walking down a street I sensed the presence of a black insect, which turned out to be a rhinoceros beetle when I inspected closer. It was walking across the street and because I thought it's dangerous for the beetle, even though I really can't stand insects, I let it climb up on my palm and evacuated it to nearby trees. Yup. Because I felt like I've done such a good deed, it's Hanamaru.
