It’s a great honor to be able to play the commander of the Flower Brigade in this new chapter in the Sakura Wars series. Seijiro Kamiyama is, without a doubt, the largest speaking role I’ve held in my career. There’s a lot to think about when preparing for a role with this many lines, which really draws you further into the work.

I’m so glad that this work will be enjoyed by so many people, and that Kamiyama will become an appealing character for even more fans. Thank yoU!

I’m Ayane Sakura, who’s playing Sakura Amamiya in Project Sakura Wars… she’s a big and serious role.

I feel that this is the work of fate, but I can’t afford to celebrate. I’m currently recording, while dealing with the pressures that come from working on a sequel to a legendary franchise. I worry that fans who’ve been following the series right now are experiencing a mix of high expectations and anxiety.

I’ll do my best with the cast and crew to give my utmost respect to my predecessors, so that we can turn those feelings into positive ones. So, thank you very much for the chance to perform in this new Sakura Wars and new TeiGeki Flower Brigade.
