Koga: "It was a great honor to be involved in the live-action version as well."
The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Aka Akasaka's romantic comedy manga Kaguya-sama: Love Is War announced today that 25-year-old voice actress Aoi Koga, who voiced the title character in the TV anime aired in Japan from January to March 2019, made a guest appearance to act together with Kanna Hashimoto, who plays the role in the film.
Koga's character name in the film is also "Aoi Koga." She plays one of the movie theater staff who serves Kaguya. During serving her, another brain battle between Kaguya and Miyuki Shirogane suddenly happens.
Koga says, "I was very surprised because I did not think that I could receive this offer. But it was a great honor to be involved in the live-action version as well." She also praises the film's two main cast, 20-year-old Kanna Hashimoto (Kagura in the Gintama live-action films) as the title character Kaguya Shinomiya and 22-year-old Sho Hirano (Johnny & Associates' boys idol group King & Prince member) as her love interest Miyuki Shirogane. "The council president played by Hirano-san, Kaguya by Hashimoto-san, they expressed the difference between the anime and live-action in a good way, and they were so attractive. I hope the audience who plan to see this film will pay attention to that part and enjoy."
The Hayato Kawai (Nisekoi)-directed adaptation will hit Japanese theaters September 6, 2019
