I feel the baby's movements 24 hours a day (24 Live Another Day debuted on March 4. I dubbed the heroine Kate, sort of a female Jack Bauer) … I'm going to become a Mamacure!? That's unbelievable!!!!!! (Mamacure's a word used often among us Precure voice actresses) … By the way, I think many of you have already heard this whispered (It's the 20th anniversary of Whisper of the Heart this year!), but I will attend the March 13 talk show "Futari wa Precure Movie Revival Screening…
