  • Comments from Atsumi Tanezaki, the role of Dai
    The “Dai’s Great Adventure” that I saw when I was a kid is so full of in my mind, so I was impressed by the passion for the work and the new “Dai’s Great Adventure”. I would like to make I will do my best to make it fun for both first-timers and those who had the same feeling at the time.

  • Comment by Toshiyuki Toyonaga, role of Pop
    Dai, Dai, Daisuki’s big adventure.
    Moreover, I never thought that the day would come when I could play pop.
    When I was a teenager, I would like to teach myself that I was indulging in many laps.
    “You will play pop in the future.”
    Perhaps you’ll drip your nose from both noses while saying, “Oh yeah!”
    We will perform as hard as we can, whether it’s uncool, eccentric, or not.

  • Comment by Mikako Komatsu on the role of Maam
    A world that everyone admired, characters that encouraged everyone, a story that everyone was emotionally moved. I am so honored to be involved in a work that is packed with everything that can be a bible in life. I want to put my soul into the voice of Mamu’s way of life! As a viewer, I’m looking forward to “Dai’s Great Adventure” that will be recolored again!

  • Comment from Saori Hayami on Leona’s role
    I feel the joy of being involved in this work, which is loved by many people, and I am also nervous.
    While fully enjoying the dignified and sometimes playful Leona-san,
    I would like to have a great time dubbing with the feeling of going on a big adventure with the cast and staff. Please look forward to the broadcast!

  • Comment from Takahiro Sakurai as Avan
    My name is Takahiro Sakurai, and I am acting as Avan. The depth of thought and the sense of distance between people are very mature, and it is a character that is synonymous with “a talented hawk hides its nails.” He was a person who learned how to draw strength. Nostalgic for our generation, I think that people in their teens and twenties can enjoy the enjoyment of the play. Let’s embark on a journey of a great adventure with the die.

  • Comment by Yuki Kaji on Hyunkel’s role
    No way, I could be involved as a voice actor in that “Dai no Daibouken” … and as a Hyunkel …! It’s not an exaggeration, it feels like a dream. I’m really happy When I was a kid, I read my manga with heartfelt excitement, and I was absorbed in managing the characters. Perhaps the “armorization (Amdo)!” Of that was used for the audition. (Laughs) I will perform with responsibility and pride. Stay tuned for the broadcast!!
