Reiji Kawashima, the voice of Fushi, and Takeshi Takedera, sound director of To Your Eternity will be part of a panel at Virtual Crunchyroll Expo this weekend at Virtual Crunchyroll Expo. We had a few of our questions answered by Reiji before his panel FROM SOUND TO VOICES: TO YOUR ETERNITY this Friday! Read on for the interview and for all the details on the panel at V-CRX!
Honey’s Anime: You voiced Fushi and Ricky, two memorable and quite different characters this season. Do you relate to either? Are you like Fushi or Ricky?
I think I sympathize with the boy in the first episode a lot. He was always cheerful and positive no matter what happened. He was the easiest to play.
Honey’s Anime: Fushi has to learn to talk and improves gradually, like a baby growing up. Did you need any special training? Did you get any special advice in order to deliver his progress through your voice acting?
I used 17 A4 notebooks to prepare for Fushi's role. I read my notes backwards to make sure that I would play Fushi’s growth up to a certain level in that particular episode and prepare for the next one before recording.
Honey’s Anime: You worked on To Your Eternity during the pandemic. Did the precautions and measures affect your work as a voice actor? How?
