Iwasaki Ryota & Seki Tomokazu

"Next Stars Circle" live streaming for the first time! Lots of fun moments with the event audience and fans online!

Iwasaki Ryota & Seki Tomokazu
The "Next Stars Circle" event was carried out with lots of interactions between the 2 guests and about 100 audience, time flew as there were so much fun talks on various topics and some unusual questions during the Q&A session! Mr. Iwasaki revealed his difficult times when he had to work part-time besides the voice acting training. "You can draw and you can sing, such a talented performer!" said Mr. Seki to Mr. Iwasaki as he complimented on his achievement. When the topic changed to "fetishism", Mr. Iwasaki admitted that he has voice and scent fetish, yet Mr. Seki's drooling fetish was rather surprising! "Imagine someone drools while laughing out loud, and so on. That sort of unexpected situation, I get a bit of a crush," Mr. Seki's comment was too funny and it provoked laughter from the audience.
