Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The absurd mystery comedy centers around Kazuhito Harumi, a high school boy who is obsessed with reading books. One day, he is killed in the middle of a robbery — and resurrected as a dachshund dog. Unable to read in his new form, the hapless Kazuhito now belongs to Kirihime Natsuno, a sadistic novelist who uses scissors on Kazuhito to abuse him.
The lead cast are reprising their roles from last year's drama CD:
Kana Asumi as Kazuhito's sister Madoka Harumi
Shizuka Itou as Kirihime's brilliant editor Suzuna Hiiragi
Ai Kakuma as Kazuhito's classmate Hami Ohsawa
Yū Serizawa as the idol author Maxi Akizuki
Wataru Hatano as the pet shop manager Kiyoshi Inukai
Momiji Himehagi (voice not revealed yet)
Chiwa Saito as the maid Sachi Moribe
