“It’s difficult to distinguish between the two because they have similar personalities on the surface. What did you stick to when you played?”
The story of a faceless clan “Shadow” and a caretaker “living doll” that can be used as a shadow as its “face”. What kind of secret is there in the “Shadow House”, which stands on a cliff? And what exactly is the “shadow” clan? The strange Gothic mystery TV anime “Shadow House” (Original: Soumato / Shueisha “Weekly Young Jump” serialization) has started.
Is it an enemy or an ally? Ricky is quite aggressive, bullish, and confident, and an excellent shadow of Patrick who trusts Ricky. The story begins to move a lot with the “announcement” that begins in episode 5, but Patrick / Ricky’s movements are also invisible! We asked Reiji Kawashima, who plays the two of them, about the work and what he thought of episode 5.
It’s difficult to distinguish between the two because they have similar personalities on the surface. What did you stick to when performing?
Reiji Kawashima (Kawashima): The daily life of Kate and Emilyco … When I started to sympathize with her cuteness, I felt something strange … By the time I realized this “Shadow House” I was so addicted to the mystery of the world that I couldn’t get out of it.
Apparently, the world is wider than we know, and there are many mysteries that we don’t know, like when we were children. But only adults know … I want to know! I want to think! And I want to find out for myself! I think the appeal of “Shadow House” is that it tickles the curiosity that springs from the bottom of your heart.
Kawashima: When I was auditioning and waiting for the results, Sowa Sowa hasn’t stopped since the manager said, “‘Shadow House’ is still a candidate!”
Actually, apart from Patrick / Ricky, John / Sean was also accepted, and when he passed the exam, the manager seemed very excited and pleased, and I asked, “So which character did you accept? I strongly remember talking with a laugh, “Oh, I was so happy that I forgot to listen” (laughs).
Kawashima: Patrick and Ricky’s surface personality is arrogant and arrogant. I thought I wouldn’t like it if it was actually synchronized (laughs). However, even if the surface is arrogant, what they feel in their hearts is delicate, or because they desperately try to support such a master …
At the beginning of the story, Patrick / Ricky seemingly have similar personalities on the surface, so I think it’s the most difficult to play in the same group.
But … they are two very cute people !!
Kawashima: I practiced the interaction of the two roles at the same time, and played at the same time as possible during the recording test. It was easier for me to feel the subtle difference between Patrick and Ricky.
The direction is “I don’t mind if I hate it more.” Patrick and Ricky slammed around in many ways, so I had a hard time changing my repertoire so that it didn’t sound like sarcastic sarcasm (laughs).
