Marie Iitoyo (Kyoka Izumi)
The “Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan” drama is now in its third season. For fans who love the original work and those who have watched the drama, I’m glad to see you again, and for newcomers to the series, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to meet you for the first time! The character I play as, Kyoka Izumi, was originally a character that only appeared in “Millionaire Village” as Rohan-sensei’s editor in the original work until now. I think that the director, Issey-san who plays Rohan-sensei, Tsuge-san who supervises the character designs, and the film crew all contributed to Kyoka Izumi’s characterization in the subsequent episodes, making her feel present as a real human being!
While honoring the original manga, I always thought about things like what I could do as I acted. I hope you enjoy it!Marie Iitoyo
Kotone Furukawa (Eve)
I tried to have fun and playfully acted as a flirtatious girl while enduring my shame. In our briefing session, I was told that “this is the most powerful (terrifying, crazy, and evil) enemy in Rohan’s history,” so I took on the challenge of using all the tools Eve had at her disposal to move the “immovable” Rohan. To find out what kind of enemy I’ll appear as, please take a look at the episode!
Although we live in a world where we can’t be careless yet, we should be careful not to let too much stress build up… I hope you enjoy Episode 7.Kotone Furukawa
Hinata Hiiragi (Ken Oyanagi)
When I heard that I had been chosen to play as Rock-Paper-Scissors Boy, I was more pressured than happy and worried about whether I could act well. But after going through costume fittings and rehearsals, I started to get excited little by little. I was happy to be able to wear rings and necklaces with my costume, and it was fun to play rock-paper-scissors with the director every time.
It was very difficult to play Rock-Paper-Scissors Boy, but I read the original manga and the script many times before playing. I was very happy to receive advice from Takahashi-san on the set.Hinata Hiiragi
A special exhibition for the series will be held at 5 venues nationwide in Japan.
