Rie Takahashi Talks About Everything Ai Hoshino
Rie Takahashi is set to be the voice actress for the Spring 2023 anime. She will be Megumin in the KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World spin-off and Ai Hoshino in Oshi No Ko.
Takahashi is well-known worldwide because she voiced Emilia in Re: Zero – Starting Life in Another World, Takagi in Teasing Master Takagi-san, Sumi in Rent-A-Girlfriend, and Tomo in Tomo-chan Is a Girl.
She recently did an interview with Anime Trending, where she said that she really wanted to play Akane instead of Ai. “As a voice actress, I’ve always liked Akane-chan,” she said, “but I didn’t get past the first round on that end.”
“When I first saw the girl on the cover shining and started reading it, I immediately thought “This has to be a series about the Idol Industry!”, however was ceaselessly surprised as I continued reading. From my initial interest wanting to read a showbiz-related series, I have only ended up loving it more and more.”
Then the 29-year-old would talk, “Because this show is about the entertainment business and shows performers doing their best in every situation, it gave me the confidence to keep doing my best in the voice acting business.”
At the end of the chat, Takahashi would ask fans to “support Oshi No ko as my Oshi.”
“I’m looking forward to the anime as well. I’m definitely planning on checking out what happens with Oshi No Ko in the future. I am hearing that a lot of merchandising will be coming out as well. So I really would like to support Oshi No Ko as my oshi. I would like everyone to do so as well.”
