Otake and Ashida have co-starred in the 2011 TV drama “Go-Princess Sengoku-” and this time it was a voice actor co-star after ten years. Otake introduced Ashida, who was innocent at the time, saying, “When I was little, I still don’t know my attitude toward work” and “I was chatting in the dressing room.” After that, he smiles, “I’m surprised to be so good.”
In response, Ashida was deeply moved, saying, “I’m glad you remembered it.” As for Otake, he admires, “The atmosphere is completely different when you see it on a variety show and when you play it, and it’s very nice.” “I also want to be such an actress. I want to be with you at the shooting site of the play this time,” he said with a smile.
At the event, talks will be held on the theme of “how to find the answer when in doubt” in connection with the contents of this work. Ashida said, “I haven’t had a lot of trouble in my life, so it’s going to be small .” I’m doing it, “he said. “I think that even if the result is decided, it will be the rest. If you decide that you have the right to decide your life, it can be painful later. You have the right to choose your life. If you think about it, you will not regret it. ” He also revealed that the inscription on the right is “Well, is it okay?”
Finally, Ashida commented on the work, “The scene where Yui (played by himself) eats rice is imposing.” “I wondered if it would be more delicious because it’s rice that I eat while having a conversation with everyone. The food scene has a hot atmosphere, and I’m happy that this is a small thing. Would you mind paying attention to everyone? I want you to see it. “
