Stay tuned on Nanaraki official Twitter!
About 4 years ago, I came across Oshirimaeman, one of Nanaraki’s director Takashi Taniguchi’s works, while I was browsing Twitter and I instantly got hooked on it! I still sing the theme song pretty often and whenever I do, other members from my group (BiSH) sing along with me and we have lots of fun.
As much as I want everyone to enjoy my first voice acting, I also want them to get to know Takashi Taniguchi and his exceptional talents as I’m a big fan of his myself.
I hope this will be an opportunity to let many people know how amazing Takashi Taniguchi’s works are and how his illustrations bring a smile to everyone’s face.
■ Hashiyasume Atsuko’s profile
A member of BiSH, a punk band with no musical instruments.
Hashiyasume Atsuko plays a key role as the life of the party for BiSH, and comedy segments of their live shows where she fearlessly performs have become an indispensable part of BiSH’s performances. She has also been featured many times on TV programs with her unique presence. In July 2019, Atsuko made her solo debut with single “A LA MODE” and burst onto the scene with her idiosyncratic talents.
She has established a distinctive position within BiSH, a group already full of unique individuals, by acting, appearing on variety shows, and MCing.
■ What is Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods?
Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods is a particularly auspicious series of anime shorts. It follows the undignified, decidedly un-divine lives of a group of gods, who’ve lost the faith of the people and come crashing down to this world.
Nanaraki features the voice of Takuya Eguchi and Soma Saito (with more guest voice actors set to join later, perhaps?) The theme song, Lucky Boy, Lucky Girl (https://youtu.be/PT6h9ea-zHA), is performed by Ryoff Karma.
New episodes of Nanaraki air on the official Nanaraki YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/3JT5uGC) on days ending in the lucky number “7”.

Animator and Illustrator.

Since then, he has branched out to work on anime titles including TV Tokyo’s Pikotaro No Lullaby Lullaby and TVQ Kyushu’s Duppys Weather Forecast, as well as online adverts for Fuji TV’s drama Ōoku and Kao’s Essential hair care series.
