「ROOT∞REXX」, the game from 「Otomate」 designed for girls was released in January 2015. The music and cast was picked in collaboration with the popular label 「Kiramune」, and the character design was done by the popular illustrator Mikanagi Touya! The famed popular game 「ROOT∞REXX」 drama CD was decided to release two volumes at once on the 24th February 2016! Interview comments from the cast appearing in volume one are Kakihara Tetsuya, Okamoto Nobuhuko, Kamiya Hiroshi, Namikawa Daisuke and Irino Miyu will be included!
━━Please tell us your impressions about the recording.
Kakihara Tetsuya (voicing Hasumi Aki): This time we recorded a drama CD and there was a dialogue with Souma and Kaoru so I had fun acting. We could see the relationship with Souma, and a funny act started when Kaoru came into the dialogue; it had a lot of variety and I had fun acting.
Okamoto Nobuhiko (voicing Shiraishi Souma): I think the drama CD had a lot, but it can all be explained in one sentence: Kanzaki-san was oppressing from beginning to end.
Kamiya Hiroshi (voicing Asagiri Jin): There’s a limit to the recklessness of making a single with 4 songs for each character at once! …that’s what I can say about the recklessness that makes me doubt Asagiri’s producer’s skills. (laugh)
Namikawa Daisuke (voicing Kanzaki Kaoru): Everyone around is so cool! Kaoru-kun has his good points too so don’t abandon him! (laugh)
Irino Miyu (voicing Tachibana Iori): It’s not my scene, but there is a scene where Kaoru speaks fast so hearing how Namikawa-san did that is something to look forward to!
━━Please leave a message for the fans looking forward to the CD release
Kakihara: After the game was released, I was also in the event last year, but now after some time, a drama CD is being released! It’s depicted as another story related to the original game, and I think it will let you enjoy the feeling of the game’s world even more, so I hope more people will listen to it and also play the game again. Please take care of 「ROOT∞REXX」 from now on as well!
Okamoto: Kanzaki-san’s oppression! The characters are played with! Don’t miss it!
Kamiya: I understood a bit that the story can progress smoothly without the heroine (laugh). But it’s lonely if she’s not there, after all.
Namikawa: I did my best so you would enjoy listening to it. Kaoru-kun’s blasting but please like him. Is it difficult, I wonder…no, but! Even so!! Please take care of him!
Irino: It’s a drama CD you cannot love as a Kiramune fan, as all Kiramune members appear in it. In the game, other members sing and dance, so it would be nice to enjoy it with the game CD. Please take care of us!
━━Thank you very much!
