Today, I would like to ask about Terashima-san’s upbringing, life as a voice actor, and future prospects. Terashima: I live in Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture, and my family consists of my parents and my younger sister. Our house is about fifteen minutes by car from Ueda Station, near the Chikuma River, a large river, and there is mountain nearby. It was an area full of fields and rice fields, with many farmers. In the past, we really played outside, building a secret base in a small vacant lot, riding a swing in the park, and playing outside all the time.
Even now, you’re pretty outdoors. Terashima: Not at all now. Actually, even when I was in the countryside, I started liking games from the time I was in junior high school… (laughs). When it came to hanging out with friends, I felt like playing games or watching TV at home.
It was a baseball club. Terashima: Club activities begin in the 5th and 6th grades of elementary school, so everyone joins some kind of club activity. I joined the baseball club, but I didn’t really like baseball that much (laughs). I wanted to join the basketball club after I entered high school, but I didn’t have any close friends who would join the basketball club, so I joined the baseball club against my will. If you don’t have acquaintances, it’s quite difficult. I was cheap and shy at heart, so even if I was interested in something, I couldn’t go without someone I knew, so I missed out on many opportunities.
You have an introverted personality. Terashima: That’s right. Speaking of missed opportunities, there is a local festival called Ueda Wasshoi every summer. It’s a big festival, but when I get invited to dance, only girls from the same district come out, which makes me feel uncomfortable. That’s why I never took part in the dance. I think it would have been better if I could have appeared at least once.
Maybe someday you’ll get a chance to dance. Terashima: Well, if I’m over my 60th birthday, by all means (laughs). When I’m this age, I think, “I need to liven up my hometown.” Four years ago, Ueda Castle and Ueda attracted attention in the wake of the historical drama Sanada Maru, eventually I want to help in the field of “voice.”
Do you like your hometown? Terashima: Recently, I’ve begun to wonder if Nagano would be a good place to go. I have nothing to do. The only places I could go were karaoke, arcades, and a nearby shopping mall. Also, trains don’t through rural areas, so even if you want to go shopping, you have to tell your mother to get out of the car. It’s a kind of pity to let you go up, isn’t it? Also, all of my local friends of the same generation have come to Tokyo. That’s why I thought that returning to my hometown wouldn’t be so much fun. It wasn’t until I turned 30 that I realized that my hometown was good. When I was in elementary school, there was a sushi restaurant that my father used to take me to every week when he won a game of pachinko. The owner is nearly 80 years old and said, “I’m old, so I’m going to close the shop by the end of the year.” It can’t be helped, but I feel lonely. I’m glad I made it in time.
You grew up in Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture, but when did you move to Tokyo? Terashima: For everyone, it’s the timing of high school graduation. However, when I was 17, I dropped out of high school in October of my second year of high school, so I spent a year working part-time and getting a driver’s license. In order to go to a vocational school, I passed the certificate exam for high school graduation at the same time that everyone else is taking university and came to Tokyo in the year I turned 19.
Before coming to Tokyo, you wanted to go to Comiket, but you didn’t have transportation expenses, but you’re going to try it. I heard that you used an excuse to visit Tokyo. Terashima: It happened in the summer when I was 18. When was 16 and 17, I went to summer comics and winter comics with my friends, but the Shinkansen fare was really expensive. So, it’s 12,000 yen… it’s a big deal for high school students, so I told my parents, “I want you to pay for my transportation because there’s a trial admission,” and I went to Tokyo by myself (laughs).
From that time on, you liked the culture of anime and Comiket. Terashima: Yes, one day, when I went to visit my friend’s house, he was reading CLAMP’s work called “Chobits.” It’s not an erotic work at all when you read it, but it’s aimed at so-called youth magazines and has a deep theme. I went to read the whole volume. After that, on my days off, I would go to bookstores looking for books with cute girls on the cover and browse and buy them. Then one day, I bumped into the friend who showed me “Chobits” at the bookstore. So, I honestly said, “No, I said that manga I borrowed before was disgusting, but I’m actually addicted to it too… Do you have any other recommendations?” I came out (laughs). That friend was also delighted, saying, “I’m glad you’re into it, too.” By the time I entered high school, I had become a full-fledged otaku. I played so-called gal games late at night, sneaking away from the parents. My parents said, “You were hiding it, weren’t you?” I gradually bought things like cute girl posters and used them as decorations. So, my parents also said, “My son is becoming an otaku.” That’s what I thought. But I never thought they’d say it’s nice. So, at first, I was surprised.
Didn’t they object? Terashima: They wanted me to go to Ueda High School, which was the best, but I hated studying anyway, so I went to a different school. Actually, I said that I wanted to go to the same place as my otaku friends, but that was also opposed, so I compromised and went to an intermediate school. I’m quitting.
When did you want to quit? Terashima: I was in my second year of high school. It was a lot of fun. I formed a band in the light music club, and I had a lot of otaku friends in my class, so I was enjoying my high school life. It was just around the time that there was an otaku boom in the world, and Akiba-kei was featured on TV. Even friends who have no interest in otaku culture. I recommended a game, and because it was fun, I preached and made more friends.
However, when I entered the second grade, the school system was completely divided into humanities and sciences. I ended up in a class with 2 or 3 boys, which was almost impossible. At the time, I was an otaku and couldn’t talk to girls. I got nervous when someone talked to me, and when I tried to hide my embarrassment and said, “What?” Well, the classroom was hell. I was silently taking classes in the first semester of my second year, but I hated studying, so I slept and couldn’t keep up with my studies. I went there because it was fun to talk with guys like that, but in the classroom, I was surrounded by girls on all sides, and I couldn’t talk.
From the middle of the first semester, instead of going to class, I started playing guitar in the clubroom and watching 2-chan (laughs). So, I made a thread like “School is too boring.” At that time, I wanted to become a manga artist or animator, so I pretended to have gone to school. After returning home, I continued to draw illustrations using a pen tablet, which I then posted on the Internet for evaluation. I also liked singing, but no matter which path I took, I would go to a vocational school, so I wouldn’t go to a normal four-year university. I don’t want to go to school anymore, so I thought I could quit school.
That’s right. Terashima: Then one day, my teacher said to me “If you take on more day off, you’ll be repeating this year,” and that was around August and September.I used to be a member of the school trip committee, so if I quit now, it would cause a lot of trouble for my partner’s close friends.
That’s serious. Terashima: I guess I didn’t want to trouble my friends. When I told my parents, “If I take one more day off, I’ll be repeating this year, and if I go on a school trip, I’ll quit.” So, the following days I took a rest as soon as possible (laughs).
Isn’t that perfect for repeating a year (laughs). Terashima: I thought I was going to get the final blow. I thought that my parents would be satisfied if I confirmed that I would be repeating a year. But I managed to persuade them by saying, “I want to go to a vocational school.” I was close to the deadline, so I consulted with my friends and applied for it, and my parents also agreed, saying, “It’s okay. Take it, spend a year immersing yourself in your otaku hobbies, and work part-time to earn money.”
How did you feel when you came to Tokyo? Terashima: At first, when I started living alone, it was really fun. When I entered school, unlike in the countryside, I could only make male otaku friends, and Akihabara is also close by. I can do it.
It’s a leisurely life. How was your vocational school? Terashima: At a vocational school for voice actors, I also study acting, which is something I like, so… but there are classes that teach the history of theatre and say, “I don’t need to do this,” but that I stopped going to in seconds. If I thought it was meaningless, I would stop going and never do anything. I like to move my body in theatre, so I don’t skip it. I did, though.
So that’s it. Please tell us how you joined the office after graduating from a vocational school. Terashima: Just before I graduated from a vocational school, someone from the Kenyu office came to me for an internal audition. The other offices had instructors from training schools, but the Kenyu Office had the president himself. What’s more Kenyuu Horiuchi-san told each person, “If you read it this way,” or “I think your voice will be better this way.” I remember feeling amazing that he gave me that advice. Luckily, I was accepted as a custodian. It was also unusual. At other agencies, I passed the training school instead of being affiliated or entrusted. There are two years of vocational school, and one or two years of training school.
That’s too bad. Terashima: If you go to a vocational school for two years and then go to a training school again, you should have gone to the training school from the beginning, right? I jumped on it, but… at first, I was not as skilled as the people around me who belonged to custody. When a student joins a group of seniors who have worked as professionals, I really can’t keep up.
Did you eat and practise there? Terashima: No, I skipped that in my first year (laughs). I was like, “Yeah, a guy who only does acting once a week will never get better,” so my first year was terrible. I thought I had a great future, but as time passed, I should have gotten better, but I feel like I’m getting worse. I thought, “This is how it is.” Since then, I went to theatre workshops on my own for two years. I got serious from there.
That’s how you climbed the path to becoming a member. Terashima: Gradually, over the course of two or three years, the number of projects I worked on increased, the number of directors who used me increased, I appeared in dubbed works and I began to receive titles and main roles. It really felt like I was steadily building up.
That is so. By the way, do you remember the first time you got a job? Terashima: I remember. My first job was about a month of two after I entered as a custodian. It wasn’t a BL drama CD, the main couple, but a colleague with a name. I was happy to suddenly get a role. I was happy, but when I looked at the setting, I was a father of two children. Moreover, the role of a colleague was Kenji Nojima-san. Moreover, the fact that he is the father of two children made me feel confused.
That’s an amazing setting for a first-time site. Terashima: When I took it home and read the lines, my voice sounds childish. At the time, my voice was younger than it is now, and my acting was even more clumsy. Played by Kenji Nojima-san, a father of two children. Colleagues… How should we match? People who started out as otaku and aspired to become voice actors have really good ears. I’m a fan, so when I practised and record myself, I can tell myself, “I’m not good at it, I can’t do it anymore.” But I don’t know the correct answer, so I’m addicted to the depth. So, in the end, it was my own voice, but I ended up acting with a strange voice that was like a mimicry of “Oh” (a little dandy voice) that I made, and it was a mess.
At the site, there were several seniors from the same office, and the manager seemed to have told me in advance that it was my first time at the site, so I said, “It’s my first time at the stie, so I should say hello.” At times like this, it’s better to do this. At the time, I wasn’t trying to be cool, but I was embarrassed to do that. Everyone was proudly going to the site as a professional, but I was the only one who was like a student who experienced the site, saying “You should do that,” and “Don’t be nervous, relax, relax!” It’s embarrassing because it’s being used! Even if I acted in such a situation, it wouldn’t go well, so the director told me, “Let’s take a deep breath first. You’re nervous and you’re just reading, so let’s act.” I started by pointing out, “You’re in a bar right now, can you speak at this volume when you’re in a bar?” In my first year, the failure at the site was a big loss, and when I got the next job, I had a phobia of “I’m scared of the site.” I’m happy that the job has been decided, but at the same time, what should I do if I get caught?
If that happened once, I would be scared you know. Terashima: That’s true. In my first year, I felt like I had a phobia (laughs).
When did that fear go away? Terashima: I think it was about my third year. It was a so-called regular job where I went to the same site every week. I was nervous during the greeting stage because I was meeting a lot of different people for the first time every time. “You look like you just drank tea, so I have to go get some.” One day, I happened to meet a senior who was rudely talking to a newcomer who wasn’t paying attention, and when I heard something like, “Hey, even though you’re a newcomer, you don’t make coffee.” I thought, “Oh, if I don’t do it, I’ll be the next one,” and it made me think, “I have to be more considerate than acting!” Even at a drinking party, a newcomer has to act as an accounting secretary, but I’m really not good at it, so I don’t want to go to a drinking party… and that’s why I don’t want to go to a place where a drinking place is likely to happen…It’s already a spiral. “If he came to the scene with just one line and didn’t come to the drinking party, why did he come?” It seems that there are times when it is said. That was the era. It’s an actor who remembers his face and connects it to the next scene! There are fewer drinking parties now, and there are more seniors of our generation, and fewer people are forced to participate in drinking parties, so I would like to believe that juniors are doing it freely.
Many people think like that. Terashima: I was surrounded by seniors like that, and I thought I was too, so I was afraid that if I went to a drinking party and couldn’t move, I wouldn’t be used anymore. You don’t know how to behave at the age of 21. That’s why I did a lot of rude things and got scolded for it. I was worrying too much.
It was like that for about three years. Terashima: At the regular set, the number of friends gradually increased, and even if I didn’t ask them to remember me at a drinking party, my seniors would remember me and say, “Terashima-kun, right?” I see them every week, so I don’t get nervous, and they casually ask me, “Terashima-kun, do you want to go out for a drink?”
Only the first one was painful. Terashima: I like acting, but until I became a voice actor, I hadn’t been considerate of my superiors, so I didn’t know how to interact with them. I was a junior. I really wanted to get along, but I thought it would be rude to my seniors, so I only talked to the bare minimum. People who can say, “Let’s go out for a drink!” or “That work was great!” are amazing. I thought it would be rude to say “I’ve seen someone’s anime” on set (laughs). When I think about it now, I don’t think so, and even if I was told that, I would think, “Thank you for watching.” I can’t say anything because they might say, “I’m here at this site.” I cared so much that I couldn’t talk to my seniors at all.
Somehow, I understand that feeling. Next, I would like to ask you about your acting. Is there anything you are conscious of or value in your play? Terashima: After all, when the character comes out to the world, I want to hear my voice and not feel uncomfortable, that’s all. It can work both positively and negatively, but what I have always pointed out is that “the play becomes small because the character setting and pictures draw too much attention.” That’s what it means. Actors in the past used to show their individuality, and at first, they said, “The voices don’t match,” and change negative evaluations into positive ones with personality. I’m an otaku and I’ve been watching the series, so from a fan’s point of view, it’s the most difficult thing to concentrate on when the voices of the characters and the voice actors don’t match. The more I feel about the original of the work, the more I’m disappointed if it doesn’t match, and from the next week, I’ll be doing well with the manga instead of the anime.
I have such experiences as a viewer, so I am very conscious of it. So now that I’ve become a voice actor, I can raise and lower my voice, how I speak, and how I act to make the character speak properly, make it look like it’s best to use your own voice or create a play to eliminate the sense of incongruity. If I feel that my voice is not suitable for the role, I can somehow make it work with the way I speak and the atmosphere of the play. At the very least, I try not to say, “The way you speak doesn’t match at all.” The most important thing I always keep in mind is not to be told, “I lost my mind watching this work because Terashima’s voice doesn’t match.”
So that’s it. So far, you’re played quite a few works that left an impression on me. Terashima: All the roles were difficult, but Shin Ichijou in King of Prism was a role I had never played before. In foreign animation, mascot-like birds and ghosts. I’ve played a lot of non-human roles with a pure heart like a boy, so I often play roles like a normal human with a high-pitched voice, bright and active. It was difficult in that regard. In fact, there was a time when I thought, “Let’s do our best so that I can get a role that’s as old as I am.” I got it. Around the time I was in my third or fourth year, Natsuki Hanase-san, Daiki Yamashita-san, Ayumu Murase-san and others made their debuts and said, “It can’t be helped if I compete with my juniors.” If I try hard, I can raise my voice, but when I shout, I sometimes turn inside out or get rattled. At that time, I was invited to the studio as Shin Ichijou, for some reason, in an audition for a low-pitched and mid-high-pitched character. I was told “Try saying your lines,” so I decided to give it my all. When I tried it, I was accepted and said, “In a high tone I passed!” I was surprised.
Your lines were short. Terashima: Yes. I wonder if the pass will be revoked… (laughs). At the audition, I had a high-pitched tone, but as I was speaking, it gradually got looser, and I was desperate. It’s a funny story now, but I used to learn how to make high notes in the bath all the time. By likening the voice to the engine sound of a motorcycle. I’m going to make a sound, wiiiin… (high tone).
It’s amazing. You can get a really high-pitched sound, right? Terashima: Thank you very much. I remembered what I learned at a vocational school for the first time in five or six years.
Were you able to hit the high notes on set? Terashima: Somehow…but it was tough. In the work, Shin Ichijou was screaming “Wow!” “Haaaa!” There are quite a few voices like that from the beginning. I’ll be parched soon. It was recorded by people, so I lavishly took a break every minute. Fu-san brought water and tea to the studio, and after drinking it, he said, “Let’s try again.” He told me to take a break from work, but I managed to do it. It was the biggest challenge of my life, and I felt a great sense of fulfilment because I was allowed to record until I could produce what I wanted. I was the only one, so I was very particular when I received it, and I feel that I really grew through that work. Gradually, I started to understand the range where I could listen while maintaining the character even if the leaves were a little high, such as the law and where to relax. Now, compared to those days, I can produce high-pitched sounds without overdoing it, so thanks to Shin Ichijou, my range of roles has expanded.
It is so. Your career lasted about ten years, but do you have confidence that you have now taken root in the industry as a voice actor? Terashima: I don’t know… But the biggest thing I thought was that Takuma Terashima-san has been very active since his debut. Sometimes I go to the temple with a mob I used to work with, but when I told him I was Terashima-kun, who wasn’t Takuma, he was like, “Oh, it’s you.” Junta was remembered. Taku Atsushi-san, who was with me on the set at the time, said to me, “You’re from the Terashima tribe!” Recently, I’ve been getting more and more people calling me “Junta Terashima” by name, and I think they recognize me. It’s a big thing to be remembered by name. Also, I’ve been able to get calls from staff members I don’t know. When I say, “I’m Junta Terashima, who plays the role of **, some people say, “Oh, of course, I know.” It’s nice to be called by name.
Now I would like to ask you about 2019. This year’s works are “Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai” and “King of Prism – Shiny Seven Stars.” How did you like it? Terashima: When the chairman called me, I was like, “I’m really nervous, so please stop!” (laughs). He said, “I’m the chair, so I have to work hard, but in the position of the content chair, I have to work hard in a different way than I usually do, so it’s tough. I’m a man who has run away from the centre of attention in class and club activities, but by playing the lead role, I’m placed in the centre of attention, and I can’t escape. I try to make communication as easy as possible for everyone. At events, I’m often entrusted with being the MC, so I must do it properly. If it’s true, there’s a junior who has more leadership than me and is good at organizing and managing things. I’m treated as a chairman, so I’m grateful for that. I’m serving as a chairman without thinking about it.”
He must have a lot to worry about. Terashima: But sometimes you have to be considerate of that sort of thing. If you don’t put yourself in a position of responsibility, I think you’ll end up just being lazy. I wondered if it’s important for adults to show them that regularly “He’s not just giggling.”
What kind of year has 2019 been for you? Terashima: This year really flew by, and if I kept moving towards the next thing, it would have felt like December already. First of all, my debut as an artist was a big event. The performers around me, including Issei Takahashi-san, were all veterans, and at first, I thought, “Is it okay for me to be here?” Anyway, it was reckless. Partly because of my nervousness, I only think about Moomin when I have time to record Moomin. Well… When it comes to content with live performances like “The Idolmaster SideM” and “A3!”, that’s the only thing I can think of… and if I just keep doing what’s in front of me, it’ll be December already. I think it was a year in which I was able to run through super high praise. It was heavy. I thought that even if I tightly condensed five years from 21-26 years old, it wouldn’t be able to beat the depth.
That’s how intense this year was. Terashima: However, when I was really that age, I played pachinko and mahjong. It was just that (laughs).
I can’t beat that now. Terashima: So, if you take a close took, I think it’s less than half of what it was this year.
As you said, you made your debut as an artist in 2019. Did you find it difficult to sing without a character filter? Terashima: At first, it was difficult. I had this habit, so when I came up with my own style of singing, I was like, “What should I do…” If I had a character, I could sing along with the character, but I didn’t have any character, so I told Junta Terashima’s true story. At first I didn’t know what kind of singing voice it was.
Was it difficult to establish one’s own individuality among many artists? Terashima: Right now, I think we are in the process of establishing it. The way we sing is different between the first and second mini albums, so I wonder if it will change each time, we release it. Even when I ask artists, they always say “changes”, so I wonder if that’s what it is. I thought that if someone had a distinctive voice, they would have too many characters to change, but in both B’z and Mr. Children, even though their voices haven’t changed, their singing styles have changed. I think everyone changes in that way, so I feel like I’m looking for points while enjoying the changes.
Terashima-san, do you like to express yourself in both singing and voice work? Terashima: Yes. But when it comes to everyone, I can’t say anything. All speech classes were cancelled. For example, let’s say there is a cruel depiction in a battle manga. But when you want to tell someone that the cruel depiction is wonderfully draw, you can say it to your otaku friends. I would say something like, “That scene in that manga was really gross, but isn’t that bloody drawing bad?” I wonder what I should do if there are people who don’t like cruel depictions (laughs). So, it was a childhood when I thought about so many things that I couldn’t say anything. Even so, the feelings and claims that I couldn’t say will gradually accumulate in my heart. I put those thoughts in some form and put them through a good filter to express the. It was the plays and songs that I could trust.
The best way of expression for Terashima-san. Terashima: Yes. I think you can read from the play that I like that work. It’s the same with songs, and now I write lyrics, but I try not to write too much directly. With that method, I believe that even people who have the opposite way of thinking can think it’s a good or fun song. Even if the true meaning of the song is not conveyed, I’m happy that it is heard. It fits my personality. It doesn’t convey too much of what’s on your mind, but just a little bit can be conveyed to those who understand. That’s why it’s great to participate in a work, write lyrics, and sing. On the other hand, I don’t think I can write essays or blogs, where I write down my thoughts in a flash because I’m afraid. I used to blog a long time ago, and there have been many times where I wrote all night, finished it in the morning, then reread it and deleted it. I feel like if I write something like this, I might get hit… (laughs).
Are you scared of being hit? Terashima: As long as I’m a voice actor, I think that if I get hit, it will cause trouble for the work. That’s why I think it’s better not to expose too much of the voice actors’ inner thoughts, but these days I have to push my personal side to the forefront. It is also true that the number of people with disabilities is increasing, and I think that the industry is also suffering quite a bit.
If you expose yourself too much, it will clash with the image of the work. Terashima: If it’s true, I think the position of an actor is just right. It’s because the image of the role is fixed and if that happens, it won’t appear in variety shows. Originally, it might be good for voice actors to be like that, but I can’t say that. That’s what’s bothering me right now. Thankfully, I get a job asking for me to “talk a lot!”, so when I get a job to appear in, I’m Junta Terashima. If you look at my work, and listen to my voice, and become curious about Junta Terashima as a voice actor, you might get disillusioned with the gap between the role and the character. I’m a person who says things… I’m a little disappointed,” and “I can’t tell you.”
Terashima-san, you are also facing a dilemma as you proceed. You said that this year was an intense year, but what kind of year do you want next year to be? Terashima: Yes. I had a lot of output this year. I feel like I’ve run out of things to talk about on the radio, so I’d like to make it a year of input where I can experience many things. Recently, there are things I want to do, but I’ve been thinking more and more that my skills haven’t caught up. I thought that if I didn’t create another period of growth around here, I wouldn’t be able to reach my ideal line of “I want to do this” at the age of 40.
Input for the next decade. Terashima: There are also the Olympics, but I’m the kind of person who don’t really watch events or sports like the Olympics, so when everyone is obsessed with the Olympics, I’m thinking of secretly practising various things to outsmart everyone (laughs).
Sounds good. 2020 will be the year of input. So far, I have asked many questions about Terashima-san. Is there anything you would like to say? Terashima: Yes. Compared to the past, I think the possibilities for the voice actor profession are expanding. I’ve always liked voice actors, and I’m an otaku, so I have this image of what a so-called voice actor was like 10 or 20 years ago. But now that image is being updated more and more, and I have Junta Terashima, and otaku, and Junta Terashima, a voice actor, in my heart. I have a feeling that “Since I’m a voice actor, I should do my best to act first,” but in today’s world, by working hard on my work and exposure other than acting I can further expand the possibilities of voice acting. As a voice actor, I also have an opinion that it may be possible to open up. Even voice actors can do this, and even if you’re doing artist activities, variety shows, events, or radio, you can do normal anime plays, dubbing, games, and drama CD’s. Voice actors can do a lot of different things, and there’s a lot of demand for the “voice” that everyone casually listens to in the world. I want to show it to people who want to become voice actors.
You mentioned collaboration with people outside the industry, but do you have any specific ideas in mind? Terashima: It’s the voice of an artificial intelligence (AI). It’s a read-aloud, but I think there will be a huge demand if that voice becomes smoother and more like a person speaking. It would be interesting if we could customize it to a different voice, etc. It is said that human jobs will disappear as AI develops, but I believe that the jobs of voice actors will not disappear. I would like to expand the possibilities of the game and find something that everyone can enjoy.
You even thought about the possibilities of the voice. Lastly, what is your resolution for next year? Terashima: In order not to be told, “He’s doing more events and collaborations than his main line of acting.” I’d like to audition well for anime and foreign films and get roles in plays. I want to continue acting without neglecting the basics, so pleases continue to support me.
Terashima-san, who has his sights set on the possibilities of his voice, is looking forward to the future. Terashima: Thank you very much.
