For many years, I have been in Tori Tori Talent Agency's care while learning how to perform well on my own. I feel like I have attained a lot of courage during my long time under this place. I have been [instilled] with various words up until now. Yet I must hold firm to my actions and keep in mind their meanings. Until now, I've been doing my best towards my dream for everyone who's been cheering for me since I was little; that hasn't changed as I've been fortunate enough to keep at it with full force. As I remain in everyone's hearts, I aim to be able to continue my work as an actor further with greater goals and devotion. I look forward to whatever is in store for me after this.
I, Hibiku Yamabuki, have left Tori Tori to join Haikyo. I have nothing but sincere gratitude to Tori Tori for giving me so many opportunities. Holding their teachings close to my heart, I shall step up to new heights and new places. In music and voice acting, I'll continue to do my best so that my voice may still reach all of you. I hope to continue having your support.
