Comment from Miyuri Shimabukuro (role of Kasuga Kasai)
Impression of the character
Since I read the original for the first time and touched the Incas, I feel that kind of danger that I can not know what is going on around her and herself a second later because I am obedient to my desires. I love thrills and don’t care much about other things, and the use of abilities is a little different from ordinary people, but I thought that was attractive.
Message to fans
I am very happy to be involved in the hot works loved by many people, and to be able to put myself in the world of “Flame Flame Fire Brigade” as an Inca. I performed while enjoying the thrill of tension. When I think that I can enjoy the excitement of reading the original comic and the excitement of turning the page quickly so that I can quickly know the next development, I am looking forward to the broadcast as well. Thank you!
I am truly honored to have been entrusted with the OP of “Flame Flame Fire Fighter Vol. 2”. I created a song called “SPARK-AGAIN”, which is connected to my current state of mind, so that the energy that this work possesses is just like the energy of fire, and the scales are properly contained. It would be great if it could be a song that raises the voltage of the work, and every time I hear it, my heart beats naturally and my heart burns. I’m really looking forward to the broadcast!\
