「ROOT∞REXX」 is a game released from 「Otomate」 for the female audience in January 2015. The music and the cast is a high level collaboration with the popular 「Kiramune」, and the character designs are from the popular Manga Artist and Illustrator Mikanagi Touya! The topic is the decision for simultaneous Drama CD release for the popular game 「ROOT∞REXX」on February 24, 2016. We were able to get an interview from the voice actors that casted in 「ROOT∞REXX」 Drama CD Vol.2 including Yonaga Tsubasa-san, Eguchi Takuya-san, Kimura Ryohei-san, Suzumura Kenichi-san, Yoshino Hiroyuki-san and Iwata Mitsuo-san!
━━Please give us your impressions after finishing the recording.
Yonaga Tsubasa (Amou Rei) : This time, Mikado and Rei swap bodies and we had to act out as being in each others bodies and we got to hear each other doing that. Other than that, I would mention Shun’s straight-man act (laugh). Also, Manager Asagiri’s unpredictability and spontaneity was really interesting.
Eguchi Takuya (Kujo Shun) : If anything should be said, it would be the body swapping, (laugh) it had a certain impact. Hearing that kind of “gap” was really interesting.
Kimura Ryohei (Kiryu Mikado) : I didn’t actually believe that I would have to swap with Amou Rei, I never thought there would be a day that I would have to perform his part. He’s cute, so I tried to act that part and hopefully was able to express a little bit of his cuteness.
Suzumura Kenichi (Kurose Tamaki) : It has been some time since I last acted like this character, and they were as lively as usual, we were able to record the same unchanging world without any problem. I missed watching over Shun as my disciple.
Yoshino Hiroyuki (Izumi Yuu) : I was able to hear Yonaga-kun in a different tone than usual. I really thought that Iwata-san’s Manager acting was moving at his own pace.
Iwata Mitsuo (Asagiri Ryutaro) : The unexpected side of Manager Asagiri near the end!! Such a cool Manager did such a thing!? But, well, he is serious, despite that (laugh).
━━Please give a message to the fans that await the release of the CD.
Yonaga : I was happy that I was able to perform Rei again after a long time, I was also happy that I was able to work and listen to everyone from 「ROOT∞REXX」 again. It’s a fun and interesting production, so please listen to it and enjoy it till the end.
Eguchi : It’s been a long time everyone! After a long time, we get to meet again through 「ROOT∞REXX」. This is all thanks to everyone’s support. I would be really happy if you continue to enjoy the world of 「ROOT∞REXX」 from now on as well!
Kimura : Quite some time has passed since the release of the original game, but with the development of this Drama CD, I was able to perform as Mikado again. And it’s all thanks to all you fans that enjoy the world of 「ROOT∞REXX」 that this was possible. I’m really, really sure that with this Drama CD you will be able to return to the world of 「ROOT∞REXX」. I look forward to everyone’s support!
Suzumura : Thanks to everyone’s support, this Drama CD is a reality. If this keeps going, and everyone continues to support, what will be the next production… what about an Anime (laugh) with everyone’s power it might be possible, thank you very much and let’s continue like this!
Yoshino : If you enjoy 「ROOT∞REXX」 even for a bit, it would make me really happy!
Iwata : How are you everybody? Iwata is unexpectedly interested in the character of 「Manager Asagiri」! He’s a person who doesn’t really do much, but it’s unusually fun acting as him! Please listen to it for yourselves.
━━Thank you very much!
