On 4th August, during the 2019 Comic Exhibition in Taipei, Nobuhiko Okamoto and Kanon Takao made a special appearance to promote “If It’s for My Daughter I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord”.
▍Meet & Greet
To hype up fans for the event, Takao gave fans major fanservice, shouting out “I Love You” in Chinese. Following her act, Okamoto followed suit and charmed fans by saying “I Love You” in Chinese, leaving them swooning.
At the event Takao talked about how she received the news of getting the part of Latina on her birthday, giving her a pleasant surprise but also giving her a lot of pressure and unease. Thankfully, the staff and the rest of the cast taught her a lot, helping her during the recording. Okamoto then joked about how he doesn’t know why he always ends up working alongside young emerging voice actresses. From experience, Okamoto explains that it’s best to keep some distance, to which Takao joked “I didn’t know you were thinking about that when we were working together!”
