Original work by Coolkyoushinja and Johanne and serialized in Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine R and Magapoke, this story is “the fairy tail that everyone knows… with one extra ‘peach’.”
This time, new character/cast info of TV anime Peach Boy Riverside has been released, and comments from the new cast members have arrived. Please take a look!

 【Comments from the cast】
Toshiyuki Morikawa (voice of Hiko) and Shunsuke Takeuchi (voice of Noblega) tell us their impression of the character they each play.

■ Toshiyuki Morikawa (voice of Hiko)

Impression of this work
I’m Toshiyuki Morikawa, and I play the role of Momotaro.
This work was very philosophical, and made me think about the nature of what is right, and what is reality.

Impression of the character
Momotaro is overly friendly, and I felt sympathetic to the character for having this in common with him.
That said, he is particularly sensitive to the regrettably greedy side of human nature, and I hope you will see for yourself how he lives in response to this in upcoming episodes.
He shows us the importance of living seriously, holding to our beliefs, and living a life you don’t need to be ashamed of. Living dishonestly will fail you.

■ Shunsuke Takeuchi (voice of Noblega)

Impression of this work
While based on the fairy tale of Momotaro, it’s independent of the original story as a contemporary fantasy. I had a lot of fun being involved in this work.
The incorporation of various themes such as coexistence and discrimination has also been very interesting.

Impression of the character
I did my best to make this character a single piece that colours the entire story.
I really hope everyone will look forward to the anime’s broadcast.

Once upon a time in a certain land, there lived an old man and an old woman.
The old man went to the mountains to cut grass, and the old woman went to the river to wash clothes… (skipping ahead a little)
Eventually the demons were all destroyed, but it was said that more demons still roamed other lands…
So the peach boy Momotaro set off across the sea.
It was amazing that they were all defeated, and it should have been a cause for joy.
However, the one thing that was off…

Killing them was fun.

This is just hypothetical, but…
Suppose there was more than one big peach in this story…
Suppose that the peach that floated to Japan wasn’t alone…
