Cast Comment:
Give us one word about singing this chara song!
Sasuke: Shortly, the music and lyric are so straight for Sasuke and I’ve got the tsundere feels here. When I sang this song, various scene from the original story were popping out in my head
Kuroudo: What a nostalgic song. I felt an unusual feeling when I sang this song, kind of a beautiful siblings’ love or something like that.
Tadahito: Closely resmbling of 80’s song! LOL I really enjoy to sing it! I sang while thinking about my brother!

What about your impression of Mini Drama?
Sasuke: The story is about job that actually Sasuke will cannot do it! LOL How can I speak politely as butler in a cafe, then how can I handle Sasuke’s stupidity, so troublesome for me. But glad to pass it and see Sasuke’s great effort finally could handle it all in the end.
Kuroudo: I think Kuroudo is fit to become a butler, I think it just flow naturally without any difficulty.
Tadahito: I never think that in “Shinobi World of Love” I will do a butler task! LOL I tried to become a cute butler then!

How was your situation track recording?
Sasuke: I curious with this word “I’ll take good care of my health not to catch cold”, whether he will seriously take care of himself or just stupid word saying not to catch a cold? Anyway whichever it is, I think Sasuke is so cool that he could be the one to rely on while he is not in good condition though.
Kuroudo: Just the two of us in the story is supposed to be merrier, but I can feel how childish the situation is. I’m not good at receiving girl’s attention, so it was kinda difficult for me.
Tadahito: Taking care of me? How envy!! LOL Especially when she was feeding me and I said “aaaam” enviously! LOL

Kindly leave a message to all fans who listen to this CD!
Sasuke: This time, we changed job from ninja to butler. Butler! What a consciousness! Even though the story will overturn the situation smoothly from the title, just enjoy don’t take it seriously! I’ll be waiting for your smile!
Kuroudo: I joined the talk session with my brother. You should hear that part, you will know how was our feeling as brothers.
Tadahito: Many unusual places in this world represented in this CD. I was singing chara song with all my power! LOL I really happy if you could enjoy this CD!

Cast Comment:
Give us one word about singing this chara song!

Kamakiyo: This song is suited Kamakiyo well, in this song I feel a calm spring represented by sunlight stream through the tree. It makes me grin to see refreshment appearance here and there!
Daisuke: I sang like a pop song and the lyric inside seems so suit Daisuke with his sexy aura! Then I could try to show up the erotic Daisuke at the chorus part, it’s really fun!

What about your impression of Mini Drama?
Kamakiyo: It’s good experience for Kamakiyo and Daisuke by working at Host Club. They just like a different people for me. When receiving a guest, I hit a table in panic and for me it’s so suited Kamakiyo personally!
Daisuke: Fortunately this time, the location  is fit Daisuke properly! I could emphasize Daisuke’s specialty at host club! LOL

How was your situation track recording?
Kamakiyo: How to take care of sick girl? Glad to know that Kamakiyo did it well and the noise made me feel more presence of the situation. I think everyone will like it.

Give us one word about singing this chara song!
Garaiya: When I read the title.. it’s.. written “shuumatsu no muma” but read “nightmare catastrophy” I.. feel.. like.. This title is so me! So Garaiya! So chuunibyou [1].  Especially when I feel the painful lyric, it so suited to Garaiya. Anyway, there are too many kanji with unusual yomikata in this song, so I think it’s quite hard to sing out when you go karaoke! LOL
Yukikage: Actually I surprised when there’s no such Yukikage’s image in this song. And since this song is so difficult for me, I tried so hard to sing it.
[1]Chuunibyou or “2nd Year Middle School Syndrome” is a colloquial and rather derisive term in Japan which describes a person at (or merely enter) the age of fourteen would either act like a know-it-all adult, or thinks they have special powers no one else has. Implying to be unique, more than meets the eye.

What about your impression of Mini Drama?
Garaiya: I just could laugh when imagine that Garaiya and Yukikage at school’s nursing room. Should we use an apron like a nurse also? LOL It feels like you read “Garaiya” as “Momotarou” instead! But yeah, anyway it’s fun to hear this story.
Yukikage: What to say.. It wasn’t like what you think about dynamic and high-speed ninja activity. Right?

How was your situation track recording?
Garaiya: A girl taking care of me? Never know the feeling before. Honestly, never get a chance to! So it’s a new experience for me. It’s fun to say, such a “could you help taking care of me?” LOL
Yukikage: Influenza is the matter of all sickness in this world, just get well soon!

Kindly leave a message to all fans who listen to this CD!
Garaiya: Since there are so many situation in this CD, just check all track and go find my hidden-fave-scene here! Please keep supporting Shinobi, Koi Utsusu from now on!
Yukikage: I’ll use ninja arts. “ninpou!! kono CD ga tanoshimi de shikata ga naku naru no jutsu!” [2].
[2]“It can’t be helped anymore!! Just listen to this CD!!”
