Number 15 - We've found our goddess!

Yesterday, from 1 pm to 5 pm, we recorded the voice of the girl heroine. We can't say who did the voice yet, but yesterday was the third recording session and it went especially well.

This was in large part because the girl, who is not a professional voice actress, was well led, both technically and psychologically by Wakabayashi, the audio director, but I can only say that encountering a girl with such an amazing voice could only be fate.

This is the first time I've been involved in an animation production, so that probably exaggerates this feeling, but the instant that I came face to face with the birth of a character who went beyond my imagination was a surprise I had never experienced before.

The character that I thought of and drew in the storyboards has been reborn with such a lively personality! So that's how she moves, so that's the colour of her skin, so that's how she talks!

The instant the girl heroine had this wonderful girl's voice breathed into her, shivers ran down my spine.

Meeting this voice was really good fortune.
I thought this from the bottom of my heart.
I am grateful to the person who made this encounter possible.

She is the goddess of this production.
