Interview:


How does it feel to be back after seven years?

"I feel... amazed (laughs), but it feels good! In spite of the seven years in between, we hope to make the flow between the last season and this one as smooth as possible."

What do you focus on the most when playing the role of Misaki?

"I'm careful about honoring the heart of his character. Misaki has a very feminine soul, delicate and shy to a fault. He also has a naive, try-my-best kind of attitude that fans love about him, so I try very hard to portray these traits the very best I can."

Please send a message out to your fans.

"The 3rd season welcomes some new, dreamy members that are sure to find their way into your heart. As for Misaki, he's slowly but surely growing up. Some things have changed, some things will never. I hope you all enjoy the new season!"
