Yuki Kaji’sKaji’s Comment
What does “Urusei Yatsura” mean to youIt’s one of the masterpieces that have already been incorporated at the genetic level in Japanese people… or people worldwide. “Love story with an alien.” The royal road and the most robust introductory edition!
Please tell us about Tomaro’sTomaro’s appeal, what you want to cherish in playing that role, and what you look forward to.
Above all, I am intensely aware of my obsessive obsession with “Shuutarou Mendou = Shuu-chan.” It’sIt’s his reason for living and his source of energy. Scary straight! And run around! (smile). It is a role that is packed with the basics of comedy. I had a lot of fun interacting with Mr. Miyano, who plays the role of Mendou.
