Message from Ami Touma:
When I learned that I had been chosen to play the role of Kokoro-chan, I was really surprised and thought that I had heard wrong. I’m very happy because I love the original “Lonely Castle in the Mirror” novel so much that I bought it myself and read it again after it was recommended to me.
It was my first time auditioning for a voice role, so I was a bit worried if it would go that way. I thought Kokoro-chan and I were similar in some ways, so I really wanted to win the role of Kokoro-chan. I trained hard and rose to the challenge. Kokoro-chan is a bit shy, and I myself have trouble talking about little things and thoughts sometimes, so I feel like she looks like me that way.
When I was reading the original novel, I wanted to support Kokoro-chan, so I’ll do my best to make it a movie that will make everyone who sees it want to support it as well.
