Dansen Wars:

Nojima Hirofumi (Manabe Jin’ichirou) & Yonaga Tsubasa (Minaho Kazuto) interview:
✿First impression when the role was decided (both roles were by request rather than through audition): Nojima “Another role to add to the list! (lol)” Yonaga asks Nojima how many roles he’s done since he’s been there from the beginning, and Nojima lost count. Nojima notes that his main characters so far (Gouenji and Kurumada) have both been very manly types, so while Manabe’s atmosphere is somewhat close to Einam, Manabe is even more of an honest kid.
Yonaga is from the same studio as Okabayashi Fumihiro (Kusaka) and Nishigaki Yuka (Kazemaru), and they’ve done radio shows together. He even went to see the movie with the two and bought the DVD box of the first 127 Inazuma Eleven episodes.
✿Nojima jokes about how you don’t become a full-fledged part of the Inazuma cast until you have a time where your role is attacking another one of your roles. All of the old members aside from Endou experienced that. Yonaga hasn’t experienced it yet. Even Suzuki Tatsuhisa (Ibuki) has when Ibuki took on the Gold Fever attack from Maxim. Nojima wishes the end credits would list out all of the individual overlapping roles.
✿Nojima’s favorite overlapping role in Galaxy so far is the cat that Konoha saved…
✿Nojima jokes about having Manabe, Kurumada, and Gouenji having a conversation together in one scene. Yonaga mentions how he also had two overlapping roles just in Resistance Japan itself. More talk about overlapping roles– Manabe’s parents being Suzuki Tatsuhisa and Endou Aya, Tomatsu Haruka voicing Matatagi’s little brother. Yonaga voiced a big bodied player, as well as an elderly doctor, which he wasn’t sure he could do. He talked with Konno Jun who was voicing the other doctor and suggested they switch roles, but Yonaga pulled off the elderly role in the end.

✿Fukuyama Keiko made a special drawing to celebrate 5 years of Inazuma anime. Various characters write down their personal proverb…
