Comment by Yurina Gyoten

"I am Yurina Gyoten from AKB48. I am very happy to be invited to play a role in the stage production of the popular novel, "The Phoenix of the Breakthrough" (破天荒フェニックス), which has also been made into a TV drama and a comic book. I have read the original novel and was very moved by the way he and his friends pursue their dreams, which overlaps with my own activities in AKB48. I will do my best as a member of the TEAM-ODAC team to deliver the charm of the work to everyone. I look forward to working with you.
