Anime “African salaryman” characters / cast
The highlight of “Salaryman in Africa” is the light-hearted banter between the characters. The anime version will feature veteran and popular voice actors, and we will introduce the voice actors as well as the characters.
A carnivore of the cat family, known as “King of the Hundred Beasts,” and a difficult middle management position. Nicknamed “Lion-senpai” by his juniors. He is feared by the animals around him because of his intimidating appearance, but inside he is very mild-mannered. He has a cute side that loves to bask in the sun like a feline, or climb on top of Luoba. He is a boss who forgets how to use Excel after the vacations.
The lion is played by Mr. Akio Otsuka, who has dubbed many foreign films and acted as the voice of many anime and game characters. Otsuka’s stern voice is attractive, but his comical performance is also popular, so he is perfect for the role of the lion, which has a gap between looks and substance.
Lizard/cv. Kenjiro Tsuda
A serious office worker in the family Smaug (monitor lizard). His cool personality and appearance make him very popular among female employees. Despite being pushed around by his (apparently) scary boss and his boisterous subordinates, he manages to overcome the rough edges of society with his excellent sense of balance. He sometimes surprises people with his tangled drinking and his natural behavior because he is too serious. Incidentally, Lion-senpai and Lizard are married.
The lizard is played by Tsuda Kenjiro, who is known for his roles as “Kaimaseto” in “Yu-Gi-Oh!” and “Nathan Seymour” in “TIGER&BUNNY.
