posted on by Amanda Whalen
Voice actress and pachinko beginner Ai Nonaka, who played Kyōko Sakura in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime and film trilogy, tried her hand at the new Madoka Magica pachinko game. The video of Nonaka playing the pachinko machine, posted on Monday, begins with an interview about her role as Kyōko.
The pachinko machines, complete with an ominously glowing Kyubey, launched in July.
Nonaka announced her marriage in August.
In addition to her work on Madoka Magica, Nonaka is known for her roles as Yukari Sakuragi in Another, Fuuko Ibuki in Clannad, Berserker of Black in Fate/Apocrypha, and Konoka Konoe in Negima. According to an interview conducted at FanimeCon in 2015, her inspiration for becoming a voice actress was her love for the character Kurama in Yū Yū Hakusho.
SHAFT's original Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime premiered in January 2011, and Crunchyroll streamed the series. Aniplex of America released the television series, two compilation films, and the Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie Part 3: Rebellion sequel film in North America. The Magia Record: Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Gaiden (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story) smartphone game launched on August 22.
