On April 5th, 2021, the official Japanese Pocket Monsters anime Twitter account tweeted that Iris from the anime Pocket Monsters Best Wishes, would appear for the first time in 7 years in the show and that her voice actress Aoi Yūki would be reprising her role. The episode title was officially revealed in that tweet as "Dragon Battle! Satoshi VS Iris!!" and that the episode would air on May 7th, 2021. The tweet also had a comment from her talking about reprising the role.

I'm very honored to be in the Pocket Monsters anime as Iris for the first time in about 7 years!
For those of you who are seeing Iris for the first time, this episode is packed with the Iris' charm and her dragon-type Pokémon and I hope this will be a good opportunity for you to fall in love with Iris and her partner Pokémon.
If you've been looking forward to Iris' appearance, I hope you'll pay close attention to her because you can feel her growth!
Above all, the interaction with Satoshi and Iris in the AniPoké after a long time is an exciting development that will get the heart pumping.
"Pokémon battles are so much fun!" and I hope it will deepen your "love of Pokémon".
Aoi Yūki as Iris




On April 30th, 2021, the Shogakukan published Domani website posted a lifestyle article interviewing Aoi Yūki for her return as Iris in the special Mimi Koi Extra Edition series of articles.

Welcome back Iris! First appearance in the Pokémon anime in 7 years! Special Interview with Voice Actor Aoi Yūki Vol.01 [Mimi Koi - Extra Edition]

Voice Actor, Artist, Creator - Aoi Yūki (悠木 碧)

Aoi Yuki was born on March 27th, 1992. She has been working since she was a child actress at the age of four, and made her debut as a voice actress in 2003 with "Kino's Journey", and in 2012 she won a Voice Actress Award at the 6th Seiyu Awards at the age of 19, the youngest ever. Her major roles include Madoka Kaname in Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Hibiki Tachibana in Senki Zesshou Symphogear, Sayaka Natori and Natori Sayaka in Kimi no Na wa, Nodoka Hanadera and Cure Grace in Healin' Good PreCure. She also started her career as a solo artist in 2017. Her YUKI×AOI Chimera Project, which she started in 2019 and for which she is in charge of planning, drafting, and character design, is also a hot topic.

The third guest from the popular anime "Pokemon" is popular voice actress Aoi Yūki!

For women who work hard every day, doing work, housework, childcare, etc., what relieves their daily fatigue is the presence of their "favorite" person! This is the concept behind Mimi Koi, a series of articles on voice acting for adults. This time, we've invited Aoi Yūki from the Pokémon anime, but we have also interviewed Daiki Yamashita and Kana Hanazawa!


▲We've also included a portrait of Aoi Yūki taken in a Western-style bookstore, inspired by her worldview!

Aoi Yūki is a popular female voice actress who has appeared in a number of productions with her ever-changing voice and acting ability. In addition to her activities as an artist, including writing lyrics and composing music, she is also widely active as a creator and producer. Her talent has attracted many fans.

Iris, played by Ms. Yūki, is coming back to the Pokémon anime for the first time in seven years...! The much-anticipated episode is scheduled to broadcast next week on Friday, May 7th, 2021. This news is already a big topic of conversation among Pokémon anime fans, and we're curious to know how Ms. Yūki herself feels about it.

"As a viewer of the current series, when I first heard about it, I was like, "Oh, what? Iris? (laughs). However, when Iris was shown in the new opening (which was renewed for the episode that aired on January 8th, 2021), I received a lot of responses from people. Even though the anime Pocket Monsters Best Wishes has been over for a long time, I realized once again how much people have continued to love her. At the time, when I completed Best Wishes, there were many people who said they were sad to see me go... I was honestly very happy to be able to play Iris again."

Iris is a girl who appears in the anime Pocket Monsters Best Wishes, which aired from 2010 to 2013. Her trademark is her energetic and curious personality and her large twin-ponytails.


▲The glasses in this shoot were Ms. Yūki's personal item. They are actually the EVE model from the JINS eyeglasses brand. The round retro frames look good on her.

Over the past seven years, Iris has surely experienced a lot of things and has grown up since her reappearance. And then there's Ms. Yūki, who has had a similar experience with her career as a voice actor.

"When Best Wishes first aired, I remember being pushed around by Iris, who was much more energetic than me. I could barely keep up with her running speed, and I was out of breath the whole time. I'm sure I made up for it in many ways and expressed her powerful nature in a more lovable way. Iris is growing up much faster, she's more active, and she's interested in many things... At the time, it was hard for me to keep up with her rapid change of perspective."

Ms. Yūki was less than 20 years old when the program started. Looking back on her early days as a voice actress, she told us, "I've been doing this for a long time."

"This time, I've been reaquainted with Iris after a long time, and we've both grown up, and I finally got to see the world from the same perspective as her."

Pokémon battles are still fun! Watch out for Ms. Yūki's passionate performance!

Appearing on the Pokémon anime after a long absence was a reunion with Iris, and also a reunion with the person she's grown up to be. When we asked Ms. Yūki how it was at the "recording studio", she seemed a little disappointed, saying, "Actually, because of the coronavirus pandemic, we recorded separately, so I wasn't with the other cast members."

"Ah, but it's been a while since I experienced a Pokémon battle. It was a lot of fun! Pokémon battles are a great part of acting and you get the feeling that you're playing a sport! This was one of the charms of doing Pokémon work that I felt at the time, even though I wasn't the best at it. This time, Iris and I were finally able to see eye to eye, which made me even more excited, and I was having so much fun. 'Pokémon battles are so much fun! Huh, Satoshi!!' The sound director told me, "Ms. Yūki, you're getting a little too excited..." (laughs)"


▲ "Wide breaker!" And so on... In the course of the interview, Ms. Yūki unleashed a "full-blown attack". It certainly seemed like it would overwhelm Satoshi (laughs).

"He pointed out, 'I don't know what to say, you must have experienced many battles, but your power is a bit... well, you should keep it in the realm of sports,' and I was like, 'Oh, my bad.'"

Ms. Yūki recounted an instance from a previous epiosode dubbing session.

"At that time, I was often instructed about my lack of power, and I was told, 'If your mind is losing, it means this child is losing. So don't lose!', I was often told. At the time, I was trying my best not to let my favorite Pokémon lose. But there was a part of me that couldn't help but stretch myself. Looking back now, I'm sure Iris was the same way. The combination of her current perspective, how's she has grown up, and my perspective, and how I've grown up as a voice actor, even if only a little, gives me a good feeling. I thought to myself, 'Okay, I'll never lose!'"

Pokémon battles are one of the most exciting parts of the Pokémon anime. It is the most heated scene in the story with Pokémon trainers shouting the names of their Pokémon's moves and calling out "Go!" We didn't know the creators had such thoughts behind the scenes that we were always enjoying to watch...! All of us in the editorial department were impressed.

"As I said before, Pokémon battles feel like a sport when I voice act. It's important to be in sync with your Pokémon partner as well as with the opponent you are fighting. It's like a tennis rally."


▲ At the shooting site, Ms. Yūki checked the photos on the monitor and said, "It looks smart!" That's how she made the scene feel. In fact, when we interviewed her, we could feel her "intelligence" in every word she said.

"When I played the role this time, I was able to fondly remember the feeling I had back then, and more importantly, for the first time, I felt like I could enjoy myself to the fullest. At the time, I was surrounded by big, big, big senior actors, and I couldn't help but get nervous. I was also under a lot of pressure because I knew from my own experience how much of an impact Pokémon had on children. Of course, I haven't lost that sense of urgency, but more than that, I want children to have fun! That's the strongest feeling I have right now. This episode is packed with the charm of Dragon-type Pokémon, so I hope this will be a good opportunity for more people to fall in love with Iris and her Pokémon partners."

In this episode of Iris' reappearance, "Dragon Battle! Satoshi VS Iris!", which is scheduled to air on Friday, May 7th, 2021, it seems that Iris, who has been on a training trip, has returned to the Isshu region. Then, an invitation to battle arrives for Satoshi...?

What will happen in the exciting and powerful battle between the grown-up Iris and Ms. Yūki? Will she be reunited with Satoshi? Is Iris's Kibago doing well? Whether you know Iris or are just getting to know her, please read this article and get ready for next week!

And the Pokémon anime special interview with Aoi Yūki will continue next week! Please check this out as well!

Voice Actor, Artist, Creator - Aoi Yūki (悠木 碧)

Iris has finally reunited with Satoshi! Have you checked out the Pocket Monsters anime yet?

The Pocket Monsters anime airs every Friday at 6:55 on the TV Tokyo network. This nationally popular anime, which is celebrating its 24th anniversary, has some exciting news that has Anipoke fans excited! Iris, the heroine of the Pocket Monsters Best Wishes anime, is appearing in the TV series for the first time in seven years!


▲ The person that does the CV for Iris is our guest for this interview, voice actress Aoi Yūki!

For those who don't know, Iris is a girl from the TV anime series that aired from 2010-13. She was working with Satoshi and his friends to become a Dragon Master, which means she can freely control Dragon-type Pokémon, but when they finished their journey in the Isshu region, each of them went to a different way.

So, this article is about the episode that aired today, "Dragon Battle! Satoshi VS Iris!", which features Iris' return.

Satoshi and Iris are reunited after seven years of absence. How was the Pokémon battle between the two, who had grown together, after a long time? If you haven't seen it yet, don't worry, you can watch it on the official Pokémon YouTube channel!

To commemorate Iris' return, in Vol. 01 of the interivew with voice actress Aoi Yūki, she talks about her thoughts on her return and her memories of the Best Wishes series. For those of you who haven't seen the episode yet, or those of you who have seen it and are reading this, please check out this article as well. Reading it will definitely make today's battle even more fun and emotional!

And now, in this special interview Vol. 02, we'll take a deeper look at Aoi Yūki's love for Pokémon, we'll take a deeper look into her love for Pokémon! A question to Aoi Yūki, a voice actress who loves Pokemon! "What's your favorite Pokémon?"

Aoi Yūki is also famous for being the voice of the popular (and cute) Pokémon, Eievui. We asked her this ultimate question, "What's your favorite Pokémon?"

"Eh!... It's different for each series (laughs). But in the Kanto region, Eievui is the best. I'm at a loss as to whether it's Rokon or Eievui, but there is also a bit of favorisim there. (Laughs)"


▲ Speaking of Ms. Yūki love for Eievui. The outfit used for pictures on this day were also Eievui colors! … It was just a coincidence (laughs)

"I also like Blacky. Blacky is a Pokémon that evolved from Eievui into an Dark-type." You can tell that Ms. Yūki loves the Pokémon Eievui when she refers to its evolutions as "brothers" (and when she recommends all of them)! This question prompted me to say, "This is the kind of conversation that always gets people excited, isn't it? I often have Pokémon girl's parties with my friends who like Pokémon, and we keep talking about 'If you could only have one Pokémon as your partner, which one would it be? That's what we keep talking about.'"

And that's when Ms. Yūki's Pokémon talk ignited (and the entire editorial team, all of whom are also Pokémon fans).

"Whenever we talk about that, I always choose Rentorar. Maybe it's because I've been watching Pokémon since I was a kid, but I have a bit of a fetish for animals (laughs). (laughs) First of all, the design of Rentorar is really cool! The face is furry, but from the belly down, there's not much hair, and the gap is kind of sexy (laughs). Also, in one of the previous movies, there was an episode where the Pokémon sang in chorus, and all of a sudden, Rentorar started to have a percussion voice for the bass part. The moment I saw that, I was like, "Boom, boom". The moment I heard that, I was like, 'What! Rentorar, you can do that?' That's when my heart started to beat hard in my chest (laughs)."

This is from the movie short "Pikachu and the Pokémon Musicians", which was shown simultaneously with the 2015 movie "Pokémon the Movie XY: The Archdjinni of Rings: Hoopa". Ms. Yūki covered quite a bit of niche information that even surprised the Anipoke staff on site.


▲ Incidentally, Ms. Yūki's daily relaxation is rubbing her cat Ashbel's (male) belly.

"I don't think he (the cat?) really likes being fluffed up. But he senses my stress level and puts up with me for a few minutes. When I see him putting up with me, I think to myself, 'Ah, thank you for being so accommodating to me... I'll be nicer to people tomorrow', as I'm more rested."

Hats off to their love for Pokémon! The girls talk about Pokémon and their fantasies never stops. Ms. Yūki's Pokémon talk is still going strong.

"In terms of the current series, Inteleon is just too cool! I also played the Pokémon games 3 times (from Pokémon Sword to Pokémon Shield to Pokémon Sword), and Intereon was always in my party. By the way, the recently aired episode featuring Inteleon, "Messon in Possible!", was also very cool, wasn't it?! In front of the TV, yikes! Inteleon! I'm such a fan! I was so excited! (Laughs)"

Inteleon is the final evolution of Messon, the water-type starter Pokémon in the games Pokémon: Sword and Shield. As it is classified as a Secret Agent Pokémon, as its slender stature, cool gaze, and calm, intelligent atmosphere make it a handsome... no, a handsome Pokémon.

"The final evolutions of the first three Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield are all too cool...! Besides Inteleon, there's Aceburn, Gorirander, and each one is so fascinating that I can't decide on just one! It's almost as if the world was divided into three warring states... Aceburn in the east, Inteleon in the west, and Gorirander in the south! (laughs)"

The editorial staff laughed out loud at the narration that suddenly started during the interview. Ms. Yūki, who is an entertainer to a fault, took over the interview.

"If I were in high school, I would have gone out with Aceburn. But now that I'm working, I prefer Inteleon! But if I was going to get married, it'll be to a Gorirander! (laughs). That's what we usually talk about."


▲ During the shooting, there was a moment when Ms. Yūki and Eievui's expressions were in sync. The ratio of their black eyes is so similar! The scene was filled with excitement.

Now, we're curious about the "Pokémon Girls' Club" that Ms. Yūki holds. What kind of members do you have?

"They are voice actors such as Kotori Koiwai, Yuka Maruyama, and Ayana Tsubakihime, who is active as an MC. They all love Pokémon, both the games and the anime. Before coronavirus pandemic, we would get together and cook Pokémon themed dishes. For example, we made jellies in the shape of a Messon, or a pot of grated radish that looked like Hibanny. Ah! I even made a Betbeton (Alolan form) cake!"

Ms. Yūki introduced us to the girls' party, which was as much about Pokémon mania as it was about girl power. How fun! We'd love to report on it next time! We, the Domani editorial staff, were all excited.

"Pokémon are cute and cool, and I really love them. As a Pokémon Trainer, Aoi Yūki has a soft spot for Pokémon. Don't push yourself, I'll use Full Restore right now! (laughs)"

Aoi Yūki is a Pokémon battle fan herself. I'd love to tell you more about her never-ending Pokémon talk, but that's it for this interview. In the next article, we'll get a little more serious (no, we're serious!). Next time, I'll be interviewing Ms. Yūki about her thoughts on her job as a voice actor. Please check it out as well!

アニメ「ポケットモンスター」“アイリス再登場”記念! 声優・悠木 碧さんのポケモン愛あふれるスペシャルインタビューVol.02【耳恋~番外編~】

忙しい毎日を送る女性たちに、癒しを! 頑張るワーキングウーマンたちにご褒美を!

アイリスがついにサトシと再会! アニメ「ポケットモンスター」もうチェックしましたか?

毎週金曜よる6時55分からテレビ東京系にて放送中のアニメ「ポケットモンスター」。放送24周年を迎えたこの国民的人気アニメから、アニポケファンが沸いた嬉しいニュースが! アニメ「ポケットモンスター ベストウイッシュ」のヒロイン、“アイリス”が7年ぶりにテレビシリーズに登場!

▲そのCVを担当しているのが、今回のインタビューのゲスト、声優の悠木 碧さんです!




アイリス再登場を記念した、声優・悠木碧さんのインタビューVol.01では、今回の再登場を迎えるにあたっての想いや、「ベストウイッシュ」放送当時の想い出などを語っていただきました。まだ本編を観ていない方も、観てから読んでくださっている方も、合わせてこちらの記事もチェックしてみてくださいね。(読むと本日のバトルがさらに楽しく、さらに感慨深くなること間違いなしです!) おかえりアイリス! アニメ「ポケットモンスター」に7年ぶりの出演! 声優・悠木 碧さんにスペシャルインタビュー…

という悠木碧さんの、ポケモン愛について深堀りしていきます! ポケモン好き声優・悠木 碧さんに質問!「いちばん好きなポケモンは?」

悠木 碧さんと言えば、大人気のポケモン、イーブイの(かわいすぎる)鳴き声を担当していることでも有名。そんな悠木さんに、こんな究極の質問をしてみました。ずばり、「一番好きなポケモンは?」

「え! …シリーズごとに違いますよ(笑)。でも、カントー地方だったら、イーブイが一番ですね♡ ロコンかイーブイかでギリギリまで迷うところですが、そこは担当している贔屓目もありまして(笑)」

▲悠木さんと言えばやっぱりイーブイ♡ この日の撮影の衣装もイーブイカラー!…なのは、まったくの偶然でした(笑)

「あと私、ブラッキーも好きなんです。って思うと、“兄弟”で推すのもありかな、と」ブラッキーとは、イーブイが「あく」タイプに進化したポケモン。進化前と進化後を「兄弟」と表現するあたり(そしてそれをまとめて推すあたり)、悠木さんの“ポケモン好き”っぷりが伝わってきます! この質問ををきっかけに、 「こういう話、定番で絶対盛り上がりますよね! よくポケモン好きの友人たちと、ポケモン女子会を開くんですが、“一匹だけ自分のパートナーにするならどのポケモンにする?”ってテーマでずっと話しているんです」


「そういう話をしていて、いつも私が選ぶのはレントラーです! 私、幼少期からポケモンをずっと観てきた影響なのか、“ケモノフェチ”な一面があって(笑)。レントラーってまず、デザインがとってもかっこいい! 顔まわりはモフモフしているのに、おなかから下は毛が少なくてすっきりしてて、そのギャップがなんかセクシー(笑)。あとね、あとね、以前の映画の中で、ポケモンたちが合唱するエピソードがあるんですけど、その中で、レントラーが突然、バスパートのボイスパーカッションを始めるんです。『ボンッ、ボンッ』って。それを見た瞬間に、『えっ!レントラー、そんなことできるんですか~⁉』って。そこでハートを撃ち抜かれちゃいました(笑)」

と、悠木さんが勢いよく話すのは、2015年の映画『ポケモン・ザ・ムービーXY 光輪の超魔人 フーパ』で同時上映された『ピカチュウとポケモンおんがくたい』の中のエピソード。現場のアニポケ担当スタッフも驚くような、かなりニッチな情報も網羅している悠木さん。

▲ ちなみに、そんな“ケモナー”な悠木さんの日々の癒しは、飼い猫のアシュベルさん(♂)のお腹をモフる=モフモフすることだそう。


そのポケモン愛に脱帽――! “ポケモン女子あるある”な、妄想トークが止まらない♡

悠木さんのポケモントークはまだまだとどまるところをしらず、「今放送中のシリーズでいうと、もうインテレオンがかっこよすぎます! 私、ゲームの『ポケットモンスター』もやりましたけど(『ポケットモンスター ソード』⇒『ポケットモンスター シールド』⇒『ポケットモンスター ソード』と3周したそうです)、インテレオンは常にパーティにいました。そういえば、先日放送されたインテレオン登場回(『メッソン・イン・ポッシブル!』)もかっこよかったですよね~♡ テレビの前で、きゃ~! インテレオーン! ファンサしてくれた~! って大興奮しちゃいました (笑)」

インテレオンとは、ゲーム『ポケットモンスター ソード・シールド』の“最初の3匹”の中のみずタイプ、メッソンの最終進化形。「エージェントポケモン」という分類のとおり、すらりとした長身と、クールなまなざし、冷静沈着で知的な雰囲気が、確かにイケメン…いや、イケポケモン。

「『ポケットモンスター ソード・シールド』は、最初の三匹の最終進化形がどれもかっこよ過ぎますよね…! インテレオン以外にも、エースバーン、ゴリランダー、それぞれが魅力的で一匹に決められない! それはもう、世は三種の戦国時代に分かれていた…東のエースバーン、西のインテレオン、そして南のゴリランダーである、くらいの勢いです!(笑)」


「高校時代だったらエースバーンと付き合っちゃうな~。でも今は社会人だからインテレオンがいい! だけど結婚するならゴリランダーだよね! みたいな(笑)。そんな話をだいたいいつもしています(笑)」



「声優の小岩井ことりちゃんや丸山有香ちゃん、あとはMCなどで活躍されてる椿姫彩菜さんとかです。みんなゲームでもアニメでもポケモンが大好きなメンバー。コロナ禍になる前は、集まってポケモンをテーマにしたお料理を作ったりもしました。例えば、メッソンの形のゼリーとか、ヒバニーを大根おろしアート鍋にしたりとか。あ! ベトベトン(アローラのすがた)のケーキなんてのも作りました!」

と、女子力と同じくらいポケモンマニアック度も高い女子会の様子を紹介してくれた悠木さん。なんて楽しそう! 今度、ぜひその様子を取材させてください! と腕が鳴るDomani編集部なのでした。

「ポケモンってかわいいし、かっこいいし、もうほんと愛おしいです。ポケモントレーナーとしての悠木 碧はもう、ポケモンたちに甘々です。無理しないでっ、今すぐかいふくのくすり使うね! みたいな(笑)」

と、自身もポケモンバトルが大好きな、悠木 碧さん。その止まらないポケモントークをまだまだお伝えしたいのですが、今回のインタビューはここまで。次回は、ちょっと真面目に(いえ、今回も大真面目です!)、悠木さんの「声優というお仕事」への想いをインタビューします。こちらも合わせてチェックしてみてくださいね!

Voice Actor, Artist, Creator - Aoi Yūki (悠木 碧)

A special interview with Aoi Yūki, who plays the role of Iris for the first time in seven years in the Pocket Monsters anime, which airs on TV Tokyo every Friday at 6:55 p.m.

Following Vol. 01, where we asked her about her Anipoke reappearance, and Vol. 02, where we delved into her overflowing love for Pokémon, this time we asked her to talk about her passion for her work.

First of all, we asked the question that has become a regular feature of this interview series. Please tell us about the strengths and weaknesses of your own voice.

▲"Well.... It's very difficult to reflect on my own voice objectively..." Yūki said thinking for a moment before picking her words carefully.

"The skills that make you stand out in the world as a voice actor are things like 'being able to use a variety of voices' and 'being able to speak quickly without stumbling' and thankfully, that's what people tend to focus on for me."

Ms. Yūki is famous for being able to read a manuscript of more than 300 words in 30 seconds. We could feel her sharpness during the interview. (No matter how fast she talks, she never misspeaks!)

"For example, the voice of Pikachu in the Anipoke can only be done by Ikue Otani. No matter who listens, you can tell that this is Otani voicing Pikachu. I don't have that kind of uniqueness. I don't think it's a mistake, because I've always done it that way. However, even now, I still admire the unique voice of someone, and people with that kind of voice always seem to shine."

Yūki continues to ask the editorial staff, "Did you do that yourself?"

"When you are a newcomer, you start by copying your seniors, right? You try to imitate them and then wonder why you can't do it yourself. Then there is the question, "Why can't I do it myself? After repeated attempts, when the sound is finally similar, you are faced with the question, "If the sound is similar, why isn't the performance similar? That's when I finally learned the meaning of "drama". I went through those two stages before I realized that that's what it means to put your heart into something. In the process, I imitated various wonderful senior actors and then went back to them again and again. I may have become much more adept now, but I haven't yet reached my potential. I am aware of that."


To make what you love into a career, you have to master what you are good at and never give up on what you love.

The viewers of the Anipoke are of course adults who are Pokémon fans like Ms. Yūki, but there are also many children who are just starting out. When I asked her to give a message to the children of Japan who are pursuing their dreams, she replied,

Ms. Yūki gave us this advice, prefaced it by saying, "Can I say something really realistic?"

"In the future, what will you choose to do between, what you are good at and what you love? In such cases, choose something you are good at. That doesn't mean that you should give up what you love, but try to keep it as a hobby. That's what happened to me. In fact, I wanted to be a painter. However, I have been learning since I was a child, and I was good at acting, so I made that my main occupation. But now, I'm able to work as a painter as well."

Through the camera, we snapped a picture of the moment when we suddenly made eye contact with Ms. Yūki.

"We live in an age where you can get as much information as you want if you want it. If you keep at it and don't give up, depending on your talents and opportunities, the time will surely come when you will be able to blossom. The first step is to build a foundation for your life, make what you are good at your job. Then, continue to do what you love as a hobby with plenty of time to spare. I think that is the secret to making your dreams come true."

What can you expect from yourself in 10 years

Finally, when you envision yourself 10 years from now, what kind of person would you like to be?

"I would still like to continue working as a voice actor. Now that I'm doing creative work, I'd like to make use of that experience and become a creator who can see the work from all perspectives, from the creator's point of view, from the performer's point of view, and from the fan's point of view."

In the "YUKI x AOI Chimera Project," which started in 2020, Ms. Yūki is responsible for planning, drafting, and even character design. Her worldview is full of her own style and novelty, and we look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

"I think that the number of people who can do everything themselves, both as actors and creators, will increase in the future. There are actually senior members who are taking on such challenges. As someone who is involved in the field, I want to be one of the first to take advantage of this trend and make it a reality. The main ideal is to create a work that can be enjoyed from any point of view: the creator, the actor, and the fan...but I don't think I can do it in 10 years... (laughs). I still have a lot of things to reflect on, such as the fact that I don't have enough knowledge and experience, and that I have a narrow perspective."

Iris can understand how Dragon type Pokémon feel, so she detects Satoshi's Kairyu's feelings, and...? A passionate battle between Satoshi and Iris with advancement to the "Pokémon World Championships" Hyper Class on the line then begins!
