Toomi appeared in "Weekly Playboy" published by Shueisha in collaboration with popular manga "ONE PIECE" released on February 22. Toomi of the rapidly rising idol unit "# 2i2" challenged shooting with ONE PIECE cosplay. Please find below for the interview with Toomi:
・ Congratulations on "Weekly Playboy" publication.
A. Thank you so much! I'm glad to be able to participate in the "Weekly Playboy" ONE PIECE Festival with wonderful people! I was very anxious because I just started cosplaying recently, but I enjoyed shooting!
・ You're not good at snakes, but please tell us about shooting Boa Hancock by wrapping a large snake around your neck.
A. That morning, the manager, Mr. Hasegawa, asked me by phone, "Is snake okay for you ?”. I am not good at it, but I felt like I could go because I just woke up, and I said "It's okay!". However, when I wrapped it around my neck on the day of shooting, it seemed pretty cute. It's also warm!! After shooting, I thought it would be good to have a snake.
・ Please tell us about special effects shooting with the feminization of Dracule Mihawk using explosives.
A. "It will blow up!" I was surprised when I was told. There was a part I was longing for when I was watching the special effects, so I was looking forward to it! I was surprised by the big sound on the day, but it was good because I was able to keep my face fixed. Also, it was difficult to handle the sword, and the shape was elaborate and heavy, so I asked everyone to cooperate and decided on the pose.
・ How was your birthday festival on February 21?
A. It was the first birthday festival in a year, so we held it with great care on goods and costumes! Many people celebrated on the day, the goods were sold out, and another # 2i2 member came. It was a really happy birthday festival!
・ Please give a word to the fans.
A. Thank you for your support! I would like to do a lot of collaborations like this one. I would like to do my best together with the members as # 2i2, so please continue to support us!
