Ito ended the panel with a concluding remark to fans, “I felt the same way last time here, but overseas, I think the series is really popular and I can see it for myself See, I can feel it on my skin. You guys are like fans in Japan; you’ve tuned into the details and observed carefully. I’m an anime fan myself, and this weekend I can feel and share my love for anime.”

Anime News Network also got a one-on-one interview with Ito. Season 3 is wrapping up about The story is in the comics. How does it feel to be coming to the end of this journey?

ITO: It does make me a little sad now that the end is in sight, but The fact that I had to play the character from beginning to end, especially in a long series where [an anime adaptation achieves] an ending is very rare and also in a manga series, so I was very happy and honored to be able to play this character from beginning to end. Personally, as a voice actor , your favorite vocal memory from the past six years?

ITO: First of all, I can only be with these amazing actors in this series Playing and acting because many of them were voice actors I saw and heard as a kid and I looked up to them as role models. So it’s a great honor for me to be able to perform on an equal footing with these amazing voice actors, and it’s definitely something that will stay with me for the rest of my voice acting career. Have you ever experienced Mob as a Inspiring character growth?


Especially the Mob described at the beginning of season 3, When he was in trouble or struggling, he set out to find solutions on his own and take action. Sometimes it’s difficult; even as adults, we have a hard time finding solutions for ourselves. It’s not easy, so being able to see Mob go through that visually makes me feel like he’s grown up, and I respect him. Also, for Mob, the problem can’t be too small or too big. All the problems, he gave his all to solve them. is a fun show, but it can also be very emotionally powerful at times. Is there any scene in the play that makes you cry?

ITO: There is an episode of Season 2 [“Poor, Loney, Whitey”] Regan There was a press conference there, and what Mob said really touched me. It wasn’t what he did that moved me, it was what he said, so that feeling stayed with me. how did you come up with different variations The normal sound of a body mob? I’m specifically thinking about the deeper-sounding version of “Chad” from the third episode of this season. [There is a “Chad” mob toy on the table].

ITO: It also appears in the original manga, but objectively from other people’s point of view, The appearance of the Mob has not changed. The style changed because that’s how he saw himself, and it was reflected in the way he drew, so I tried to adapt to that art style and find the voice that best reflected that art style. You believe you have a supernatural body Experience it?


No, I never have. Having said that… the closest I got was when my family had a dog and when the dog died my family said they heard the dog running around or they thought they heard it barking, sometimes I can feel the presence of dogs even when I know they are gone.

If you have a pass what you want Psionic ability?


I’d say maybe teleporting or moving things. Overall, I just want to pamper myself so I don’t have to do anything. I want to move things to my side so I don’t have to go out there to get them, or I want to teleport somewhere so I don’t have to travel all the way here. Just something to spoil me.
