It was like a dream come true to be able to do voice acting in the TV anime Pocket Monsters and moreover I got to dub on the same day as other voice actors, so I thought, "Well, this should be good!"
It was fun, but I was also nervous. Please enjoy watching the show and pay attention to the cool Subame and Hibana which I play!
