posted on by Kim Morrissy
In the sixth episode of the The Day I Became a God radio show posted on Friday, voice actors Natsuki Hanae and Ayane Sakura briefly commented on series creator Jun Maeda's recent disappearance from public life. At roughly the 30:40 mark of the program, the actors comment on how they normally read out a message written by Maeda, but this time, he did not leave a message.
The actors' brief exchange is translated as follows:
Sakura: Okay, so, Maeda-san left a message this time, too.
Hanae: Oh? Did he? Wait, he didn't!
Sakura: No way!
Hanae: Yeah, there isn't one today! ...Aww, how sad.
Sakura: Aww, you crybaby, Natsuki-chan.
Hanae: I'm so sad.
Sakura: Don't snot all over the place! Don't take advantage of the situation to get your snot everywhere! ...Ah, so he didn't leave a message today.
Hanae: He must be busy.
Sakura: I wonder if he's got his hands full right now.
Hanae: Or maybe he's finally allowing himself to let loose?
Sakura: Whoa, apparently he's missing right now.
Hanae: Oh, I see...
Sakura: Well, we'll continue to wait patiently for Maeda-san's return.
Hanae: We'll wait. Please do things at your own pace. We're hoping for the best.
Hanae: It sure is weird for the voice actors to say this kind of thing...
