“My name is Subaru Kimura and I will be playing the role of Numeoka!
I’m extremely honored to be a part of “Theatrical Version Blue Lock -EPISODE NAGI-.” To be honest, I didn’t know the character Nagaoka, but it’s really exciting to play a character with no prior information, an enigmatic one.
The reason is that I can get to know the role from scratch with the premise that I’m playing it. As I get to know the character Nagaoka Ryo deeply from here on, I’ll do my best to contribute to making this theatrical version a great success. I’ll give it my all!!“
