Aoi Koga revealed her favorite character from Kaguya-sama: Love is War

the japanese portal HOMINIS shared an interview with the voice actress Aoi Kōgaabout his interpretation of the character Kaguya Shinomiya within the franchise Kaguya-sama: Love is Warspecifically in the movie Kaguya-sama: The First Kiss Never Ends. In the third season, her character and Miyuki Shiroganeanother protagonist, finally kissed and consolidated their relationship, but what’s next?

  • Please tell us your impressions about “Kaguya-sama: The First Kiss Never Ends” and its screening in theaters in Japan.
  • The third season had a very good conclusion in terms of story, and I thought the production would end there. The narrator Yutaka Aoyama mentioned in the last episode, “There is still more to come, there is more to come!” but the sound director told me, “It’s over, so please follow the script one last time.” Then I thought: “Oh, well, it seems that it is the end.” But then they told me: “We will do the sequel, don’t worry”, and I was completely happy. I’ll still be able to watch the sequel, I’ll still have fun with the story of Kaguya and her friends, I thought. And when I heard it was going to be a theatrical movie, I couldn’t be happier.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War
  • How was the challenge of recording an animated film?
  • I have received numerous messages of joy from fans who have supported me. When the third season finished airing, I received a lot of compliments saying, “I’m so glad you played Kaguya, Koga-san,” which made me very happy. I felt happy to be involved in this project, and at the same time, I could feel from the reactions that the fans have a lot of trust in us cast members, which made me happy and at the same time made me feel very rewarded. Since they trust me, I felt a strong sense of responsibility, or rather a strong desire not to let them down.
  • The new movie features a cold-hearted character named “Ice Kaguya”, what do you think is the appeal of this version of Kaguya?
  • In the anime, from the beginning, the focus is on the current Kaguya, but in the monologues of the past, there was a rather ruthless feeling, or a part of it that was very much like “I decide who to associate with based on whether I like myself.” Is it useful or not”, and I think we probably caught a glimpse of the Ice Kaguya. But I think it was after meeting all the members of the student council that I myself became what is known as a normal Kaguya.
  • Until then, it was more about being ruthless, and I think that’s what Kaguya is essentially about, because the current Kaguya comes directly from the Ice Kaguya, who was first. At first glance, she’s just ruthless, but there’s actually a good reason for that.
  • I think those who follow the anime will discover the appeal of the Ice Kaguya through this new work, and fans of the original work are looking forward to seeing how this version of the protagonist will appear. It’s not just cold, but it shows what’s at the heart of the Ice Kaguya, and I think if people could see that, more people would love this version. Please cherish her, I immediately think.
  • There are many fascinating characters in “Kaguya-sama: Love is War”, but which character do you like the most?
  • Kaguya is my first choice, partly because I play her, but if not Kaguya, then the president. I really admire him. Of course, he has worked hard and pushed himself, while Kaguya is able to do everything smoothly. The president is not only inept at athletics, but he is also a bad singer, and he has tried very hard in his studies and is still one of the best students.
  • I think that a genius who can really work hard, or the power and energy to try to be by Kaguya’s side, is something that ordinary people would never be able to do. I think that kind of attitude is what makes the president great, and I think that’s an irreplaceable thing. That is very important to me.

The movie Kaguya-sama: The First Kiss Never Ends It opened in theaters in Japan on December 17, and will have a special broadcast on television soon. There is still no confirmation of whether there will be screenings in theaters in Latin America.
