Following the release of Saekano the Movie Finale by ANIPLUS, at the C3AFA Singapore 2019 which was held from 29 November to 1 December 2019, we had a few words from the highly popular seiyuu (Japanese voice actors) duo, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Ai Kayano.

The first season of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend aired and simulcasted on ANIPLUS January 2015, followed by the second season which was released in April 2017. As the final installment of the romantic comedy series, Saekano the Movie Finale will see the conclusion of Tomoya Aki’s story with the heroines of Saekano.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka plays Tomoya Aki, the bespectacled otaku main protagonist of the series and the object of romantic interest for the numerous heroines. On the other hand, Ai Kayano plays Utaha Kasumigaoka, a mature and long-haired cool beauty; one of the heroines who yearns for Tomoya.

Outside of Saekano, the duo is well-known amongst fans to get along well and have played several closely-related roles in series such as No Game No Life, Sword Art Online: Alicization and The Pet Girl of Sakurasou.
