Q1: What are your impressions after reading the script?
During the previous series (ALIVE), I felt that it showed Samareji’s potential to be serious, and this time the scale felt even grander.
It felt like it was still only the beginning of the story, and I was honestly impatient to find out what happens next *laughs*
I felt proud of the three brothers’ growth, as if I were their parent.
As for the story, I thought the content was rather defiant (in a good way). It makes me wonder how long the brothers and the maid will be able to continue their lifestyle, which also alludes to the series as a whole.
I’m looking forward to seeing how they face it.
Q2: A new character appears in this series: Kirishita Mahiro, the brother-in-law. He plays a key role in the story. What are your impressions of him?
Ahh, he’s a dangerous one *laughs*
He’s an enigma in a way unlike the Kaguragi brothers. He doesn’t reveal his true intentions, and won’t let you catch him.
I was in a different recording session from his voice actor, Morikubo-san, so I’m looking forward to hearing the completed version.
There’s a scene in the latter half where he talks alone with the maid, and when I read that, I thought, “I knew it, this guy won’t go for normal methods at all.”
The focus is the unrest he causes to the Saionji household members, but I’m excited to see more of Mahiro-san’s inner self as the story progresses.
Q3: It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Saionji family. Did you feel any changes in the characters’ relationships?
Quite a few.
This relates to the next question as well, but the three brothers have changed quite a bit since the first series.
You can feel it from the very first track.
During recording and free talk, the three of us cast members also talked about how we’ve changed (in a good way)!
I think it’s wonderful how these changes can be shown due to the passage of time in the story.
At first, it was always noisy when the three brothers were together. But now, for example in Fuji and Ran’s scene, or Ran and Gen’s scene, you can really see their development.
Q4: Since this is the third year, the love confession scenes were different from previous ones. Do you think your character has changed when it comes to romance?
Gen changed the most, for sure! *laughs*
Since he’s the youngest, Fuji and Ran have always been protecting him.
At first, it felt as though he’d been spoiled by that environment. But now, after experiencing many things, he’s decided on his future path and is working hard towards his goal. He’s no longer just the cute little youngest sibling.
His confession scene is confident, as an adult. I could feel that change from the script, so I strived to make sure it was more than just cute.
By the way, Fuji and Ran’s scenes are also top-tier in their own ways, so please look forward to those too.
Q5: Please give us a message for the people who’ll be buying the CD.
All of it is worth listening to, and the new character Mahiro-san’s part is important too, but I also hope you’ll pay attention to the aforementioned changes in the brothers and feel their growth.
This drama CD is the prelude to a grand story that’s about to unfold, so I hope you’ll be excited to see what kind of drama there’ll be between the Saionjis, Arisugawas, the maid, and Mahiro.
Also, separate from this CD are the voiced versions of the side stories that we recorded. Unlike the serious main story, these are 100% comedy, so I hope you’ll listen to them too *laughs*
