You can watch the PV trailer that highlights the character Sefu here:
From the trailer, it’s easy to see that Sefu is a clumsy yet carefree girl. She seems very enthusiastic to do the “Do it yourself” projects, but obviously has a hard time doing them. Even so, despite being covered in bandages it doesn’t look like Sefu is going to give up on her projects anytime soon.
Playing the role of Sefu made me experience a lot of “firsts” in my career as a voice actress. The story takes place in Niigata, which happens to be my hometown! I feel like that was fate. I am happy to be involved in such a creative anime. I hope I will bring out Sefu’s charm to everyone watching!Konomi Inagaki commented at diy-anime.com
You can watch the PV trailer that highlights the character Purin here:
From the trailer, we can tell that Purin is close friends with Sefu and really doesn’t like her nickname “Purin” by the way she objects to being called thusly and stresses that her name is “Miku”. Purin also appears to be the coolheaded brains of the operation and probably has to keep Sefu out of trouble.
The anime Do It Yourself!! is going to be a relaxed slice-of-life show following the lives of six rather unique girls. I believe it will be a very soothing experience to watch the show and I hope the viewers will enjoy it.Kana Ichinose commented at diy-anime.com
DIY has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and has become a regular part of my life, so I was very interested when I found out I was going to play the role of a girl who would work on DIY projects. My parents are currently remodeling and renovating our home so when I come home it always looks different. DIY instilled in me that “If you don’t have it, why not make it?” I am honored to play Kurei, who is always one step ahead of everyone else in the DIY club, which should make her fun to watch. I hope the show will inspire people to make their own things!Ayane Sakura commented at diy-anime.com
Do it Yourself!! is a heartwarming story about a group of high school girls, who make furniture and accessories all on their own. Playing the role of Takumi began to inspire me to want to make things!Azumi Waki commented at diy-anime.com
I’m very excited to play the role of Shii, and can’t wait to see the activities of the DIY club animated. I hope fans will enjoy my portrayal of Shii.Karin Takahashi commented at diy-anime.com
I’ve always enjoyed making plastic models but ever since I started playing the role of Jobko I’ve come to have even more interest in DIY projects, including trying to build my own desk! I hope the show will help people to appreciate all the time and effort it takes to make all the items around them. Jobko is a smart, foreign exchange student, who uses cutting-edge gadgets in her DIY projects, which will make her incredibly amusing to watch!Nichika Omori commented at diy-anime.com
