Additionally, the site lists a message from the author, which reveals details of the cast:
- Thank you very much for the decision to make “Romantic Killer” an anime. After almost two years of being silent as a secret society, I was finally able to announce it. It was such a big secret to me that if I was given a truth serum, the first thing I would say is that I was making an animation. I see the reactions of the readers who missed the end of the manga, I want to tell you, it will have an anime!
- The story was initially created by one person, but now there are so many people involved, including the director and the screenwriter, it’s amazing. And I’m not familiar with voice actors, so I ruled out all the candidates, but Netflix took it too seriously and came out with too many amazing people, which made me smile.
- Rie Takahashi is the ideal voice for Kyoko, and I loved that she was able to express Kyoko’s passion and speed so beautifully. Mikako Komatsu played the obnoxious Lili in the manga in a very cute way. Lily in the anime is really cute, can you believe it? I can’t tell you more at the moment, but don’t worry!.
