Ikuta Erika’s comment
➖As your first appearance (in a drama) after graduated from Nogizaka46, how was the filming?
Now that I’m being told, I just realized about it (laugh). It was a valuable experience for me to take on the role of this time in the drama scene for the first time since I graduated. I also think it was a solid step for me in the future.
➖If you have any, please tell us an episode of you and Kuroki Haru-san in the filming location.
I met (Kuroki) Haru-san for the first time on this day, and she remembered, “It’s been awhile after Ichikei no Karasu, right?”. She gave me a candy to relief me (laughs). There was almost no interaction between us during “Ichikei“, but this time I was happy to be able to act together.
➖Please give a message to those who are looking forward to Ikuta-san’s appearance.
In this 10th episode that’s also final episode, various events are connected at once and collected. Mio, who I play, is one of those pieces, so I hope you can keep an eye on what kind of development it will be.
