Who will play the gyaru heroine?
Voice actress Ayane Sakura will play the role of the Hokkaido gal heroine, Minami Fuyuki.
The story is set in Japan’s cold, northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido and is a coming-of-age tale that has passion, love, and friendship. The manga is full of interesting developments, but there were steamy moments that made me embarrassed to read. The Michi-no-kosatsu gals are very competitive when it comes to their popularity. I will play Minami Fuyuki who is a gal that engages with others with her bright and positive personality. I think people will find her soothing to watch. I have never used gyaru slang in my daily life before, so I plan to learn many gyaru slang words before the recording session so I can do my best to play the role of Minami Fuyuki naturally.Ayane Sakura commented at Natalie.mu
