Ikimono-san Cast Comments

Makoto as Igaguri

“When I saw “Ikimono-san” for the first time, it became “What is this?” Isn’t it exciting, how to interact with Iguri’s creatures? Self-assertion It’s exciting and wonderful.

If you look at it, I think you will understand! So I want a lot of people to see it and enjoy interacting with Ikimono with Iguri!”

Norihiro Urai as Inu

“This time, I’m Urai, a male planco, I’m going to watch over Iguri gently with “Ikimono-san” and play a big role to play together. It’s my first time appearing in anime and playing a dog, so it’s very fresh.

I was confused at the beginning of the voiceover, but now I’m in myself little by little. I feel that the space for “dogs” is being created. Please have a nice combination of Igaguri and a dog!”
