Kohara Konomi has once again held a Q&A. You can refer to the previous parts below;
Q: How has work been recently?
A: I’m really thankful for every work I have, I’m enjoying myself. But, I have some announcements to make… Just wait for a while, okay?♫
Q: Recently, music games are getting popular in arcades, are there any games that Koko-chan is getting in recently?
A: I don’t go to the arcade… I also don’t play app-based games… I went to try VR recently ^ ^, but because the bridge of my nose is too low, the goggle kept slipping down lolol
Q: What type of nail style are you sporting for autumn?
A: I’ve been going to the salon of late, so I want to do them myself this time. I’m bad at them though lol.
Q: What is Koko-chan’s 3rd favourite food?
A: Could this question be following the format of the segment in “Radio Dottoai” I’m really happy! And also nostalgic ✨ For now, it is pork soup! By the way, in 2nd place is egg sandwich, and 1st place is grilled rice ball. lol
Q: What are your favourite foods?
A: Putting aside order, milk is on my mind now🥛.
Q: I really admire you!!!! I’m supporting you! Sorry that this isn’t a question…
A: Why are you apologizing!! I’m happy! Thank you ✨ I’ll continue to work hard.
Q: I wanna see a cat.
A: I’ll feature a cute one next time lol.
Q: What made you want to become a seiyuu?
A: I had the thought of becoming an actor, that’s when my primary school teacher and my mum told me that I’m more suitable working in a field that utilizes my voice. I wrote about this before so please check back if you want to.*
*I linked the post in the first Q&A that I translated a while ago. Since this seems to be a popular question, I might as well translate that here. Basically she always had interest in a job that uses her voice, but she had a complex about her voice, until her teacher and mum encouraged her.
Q: How do you approach a person you like?
A: I wonder… If I don’t know that person yet, I will start with by striking a conversation first.
Q: What are your favourite cosmetic products?
A: I talked about it earlier, but I like the lip butter from Korres! Also, lip cream is a must! Moisturizing is important! As for foundation, I use this brand called to/one.
Q: Which senior do you look up to?
A: Everyone is really wonderful, so I can’t choose…
Q: What spot do you recommend for autumn?
A: It has to be changing colours of the leaves after all. As for a spot in the city, Hakone is good ♫
Q: Does Koko-chan have any particular style or taste for hairstyles and clothes?
A: I think something that isn’t too embarrassing. I like simple stuff. With simplicity comes the option to play with accessories, but it still is tough matching them. I also like weird watches.
Q: It’s been some time since you started living alone, have you gotten used to it?
A: More or less (○´U`○) The only thing is that since the time spent being alone increased, so I feel lonely more often.
Q: Are there any shoujo mangas you would like to recommend?
A: I haven’t read any recently at all. However, as for those I’ve finished, I’d recommend Shiki no Zenjitsu.
Q: Was there any incident that made you cry recently?
A: I’m easily moved to tears, I can also cry while laughing lol. As for something recent, I guess it’s when I received everyone’s letters and presents for my birthday. No, really. Thank you so much for the letters and replies. The least I can do is to thank everyone here. Please forgive me.
Q: What do you want to attempt in your lifetime?
A: Sky diving!
Q: Do you have any recommendations for an eatery in Tokyo?
A: Could this be about a date!! Waa ♡ You didn’t give me any details though. (cries) Sorry about that. A place I go to regularly with Zucchi is Asakusa!! There are many shops selling delicious food there! Just strolling around there is fun too, you can even walk to the Sky Tree!! Fufufu
Q: What do you do to take care of your throat?
A: I keep an undiluted solution of propolis at home, and bring around a spray when I go out. It stings when I use it in winter, literally wincing in pain and it felt like dying.
Q: Do you go to animal cafes?
A: I haven’t gone to any yet. It’s really getting popular recently right?
Q: Has it been going well with your husband (Zucchi) recently? Lol
A: Why are you laughing! Lol. It’s going well. We made plans to go out while talking ♫
Q: How are you？:)
A: I’m always fine!!♡
Q: Are there any interesting stories from the set of Asobi Asobase?
A: While fumbling over the script, I would let out weird sounds like “Voom!” or laughter like “eeheehee!!” before correcting myself lol.
Q: What was the episode for Asobi Asobase that drained out the most strength?
A: I had to use everything in me for all the episodes, so I can’t choose lolol. But, I would say the later half is really intense. lol
Q: Are there any food that you are bad with?
A: I can’t eat any shellfish at all… (cries)
Q: Do you want to sing Inkya Impulse (ED for Asobi Asobase) in Karaoke?
A: It is a song that will blow away all your stress! Maybe the 3 of us should go next time.
Q: What is your hobby?
A: I like making pierced earrings and visiting art museums.
