Episode 4 of Ben-To’s radio. This episode has Shiraume Ume’s seiyuu Kayano Ai coming in to guest. For some reason I’ve always thought Kayano was in her late 20′s but she’s only 24 :O
- Are you an M? S?
Note: M = Masochist, or in this light context, someone who enjoys being teased. S = Sadist, once again in this context it means someone who likes to tease people a lot.
Kayano: Are you an M Shimono?
Shimono: Eh?! Whats is this all of a sudden?!
Ise: *laughs* I’m also interested in hearing this! Shimono-san are you an M?
Shimono: I’m not an M! I’m not a pervert as well!
Ise: Ehh how boring…
Shimono: What was that?!
Ise: *laughs* Nope, nothing!
Kayano: Ehh I thought being an M would fit you perfectly…
Shimono: What?! What are you saying?!
Kayano: Well it fits your character. So I thought you’d definitely be an M.
Shimono: Ah so you thought I’d be an M but not in the perverted way?
Kayano: Nope. Perverted as well.
Ise: But if Shimono was to call himself as S I’m pretty sure no one would believe him!
Shimono: What about you Kayano-san? Which would you say you are?
Kayano: Hmm I’d say I’m a bit… S. Actually I thought I wasn’t that much of an S before doing this role but… I am an S.
Shimono: I’ve noticed a lot of the cast who appears in Ben-To are all S… Especially the girls.
*Kayano and Ise laughs*
Ise: Ahh I think you’re right.
Shimono: And I think a lot of the guys are M *laughs*
*Kayano and Ise laughs*
Ise: You’re right! A lot of the guys seem like they want to be teased *laughs*
Kayano: They’re getting teased a lot aren’t they.
Ise: They’re all nice so even if you poke them a bit it seems like you can go further.
Kayano: Yeah and so you just keep going!
- What’s it like playing Shiraume, a character completely different from your previous characters?
Kayano: She really is different from any other character I’ve voiced so far. A girl like her that’s this S. I had to pull out as much S as I could from within myself to play her. And… Because of that I think my expression in front of the microphone must be really terrifying!
*The three of them laugh*
Shimono: Ah I really know what you mean.
Kayano: I must be putting out a really scary glare up there.
Ise: I think you’ve really done a great job with her though!
- The staff brings in convenience store bentous in for the three of them, to their absolute delight :D
- Apparently Kayano’s stomach was grumbling so the appearance of the bentous made her really happy haha.
- In the last 5 minutes they say goodbye to Kayano… But it looks like she’s still there next to them, she’s just eating lol. You can hear her laughing or mmhmm’ing while chewing lol. She does make sure to point out “Ah Shimono-san you’ve got rice stuck on your mouth” with a full mouth though, even when he himself knew about it and was taking it off already haha.
Shimono: Why would you make sure to point that out when I already know about it! Oh… To make sure it gets recorded on radio… -__-
The two girls continued to tease and bully poor Shimono(senpai!) throughout the episode lol.
On a different note, I’ve been getting more interested in Kayano’s radio work recently. Perhaps I’ll start following her a bit more :O
