Cast Comments Below:
Shoya Kimata (JO1)
I have always wanted to work as a voice actor, so I was surprised that my first attempt at voice acting was with such an amazing staff and cast.
I thought I would be more nervous during the post-recording, but surprisingly, I had a lot of fun and was able to concentrate on the work. Kosei Minamihara has a playful side, and when he teases the main character, Yuu, I felt the same way, as I usually do.
I think this is a great work because it allows us to experience a world we have never known before, the horse racing school, through animation.
Shosei Ohira (JO1)
I was really happy to have this opportunity. I played the role of Masaki Higashi, who is the leader of the group, and there were scenes where we had to stop fights, and although not to this extent, we also sometimes argue with each other, so I could relate to him.
The main character, Yuu, has left the idol group and is going his own way on his own. I think this anime has the power to push people who are chasing their dreams.
