When I heard the title, I felt a strong sense of mission. That’s because I’m a lifelong dieter and Ito-san can’t lose weight either! I sympathize with Elfuda, who bravely tries to diet but cannot resist the temptation of food. I definitely want to participate in this work…! That’s why I auditioned, so I’m really glad I was able to get the role. If you watch this anime, you might end up eating a lot of potato chips when you realize that it’s supposed to be good for your health. health and diet…!? I’ll be happy if you can fall in love with its wholesome charm!
