Comments from Hanae Natsuki, voice of Bocchan
I'm Hanae Natsuki who will be voicing Bocchan.
The interaction between Bocchan and Alice is quite cute in this work.
He wanted to touch her despite being unable to as if it was teasing the viewers. (haha)
Within the gentleness and calmness, there is some sadness as well a slight mature development, so this is a work where you can enjoy various contents.
I want to try my broadcast to draw out the appeal from this work, so do look forward to the broadcast!
Comments from Mano Ayumi, voice of Alice
I'm Mano Ayumi who will be voicing Alice.
"Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid" is a story about Bocchan and Alice, who have feelings toward one another despite being unable to touch each other. The relationship between the two is a mixture of slight pure romance, reverse sexual harassment, and laughter, the characters are also quite appealing, making me to love this work a lot! That's why I was happy as well as felt a great responsibility when I was given the role of Alice. I will go all out in voicing the charming Alice, so do look forward to it!
Comments from Inoue, the original author
The TV anime has been decided.
It was very lucky since I just spend my everyday enjoying drawing this work.
I didn't think that it will get an anime so I just draw it in my own style, now I regretted that I didn't make the character to be a bit purer.
Sorry for the trouble, but please do look forward to the broadcast.
