KonoSuba: Fantastic Days: Sora Amamiya (Aqua), Jun Fukushima (Kazuma) Share The Love With English Fans In Video Interviews

Nexon published video interviews with Sora Amamiya and Jun Fukushima to celebrate the Global release of KonoSuba: Fantastic Days, coming soon in 2021.

December 1, 2020

As we previously reported, the KonoSuba gacha game, KonoSuba: Fantastic Days, will be launching in English in 2021 on iOS and Android. For the occasion, Nexon published special video interviews with the voices of Aqua and Kazuma, Sora Amamiya and Jun Fukushima.

In her interview for the Global release of KonoSuba: Fantastic Days, Sora Amamiya brought up she’s very happy overseas fans will be able to enjoy the game as well. Amamiya knows KonoSuba is very popular outside Japan. As such, hearing the Global release of Fantastic Days is on the way makes her very hyped. Sora Amamiya also pointed out Fantastic Days includes multiple original characters.

Sora Amamiya, the prolific seiyuu who voices our favorite useless goddess Aqua, is also known for voicing characters such as Kasumi Yoshizawa in Persona 5 Royal, Elizabeth in The Seven Deadly Sins, and Mayuri in Date A Live.

Meanwhile, in his interview, Jun Fukushima explained voicing Kazuma for the anime and voicing Kazuma for the game is slightly different. Mainly because the seiyuu recorded their lines for the game separately. This means they had to imagine themselves talking with someone, even if they were alone. Moreover, this allows the characters to display stronger emotions.

Jun Fukushima is also known for voicing Jin Muso in Aquarion Evol, and Hariham Harry in HUGtto! Pretty Cure. Be careful not to mix him up with Jun Fukuyama, another popular seiyuu.
