Akio Otsuka (role of Gerald Kano)
Me about the character in charge.
What kind of person is he?
I’m a little worried about whether it’s God’s will to leak more information, but now.
If anything, I’ve played many roles with a simple mental structure that makes it easy to see what’s going on, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.
However, this time it is rare and not limited to that. What will happen?
