as an avid fan of both popipa and roselia's seiyuus, i'm really heartened by how supportive everyone is to shizaki kanon / nonchan! to follow up her induction into roselia yesterday, nonchan posted a thread about her feelings on voicing rinko (i tried to translate it otl)
"this is shizaki kanon once again. yesterday, i took part in my first live as roselia's keyboardist. i was very anxious and extremely nervous about whether fans would accept (me as) the new shirokane rinko, and whether i would be able to play my piano solo perfectly until the end, but everyone warmly welcomed me, and i was very touched.
as a newcomer, i understand the great importance and responsibility that comes with acting a popular character (contents?). from here on i will work harder and harder and the piano and acting, and would like to put in effort into becoming closer to shirokane rinko.
yesterday's live was one that solidified my determination as part of the future roselia. in order for everyone involved in the franchise to accept me, i will face forward and start working hard. i'm looking forward to working with all of you."

please take my translations with a pinch of salt oof but also with her being a newbie in the industry she's probably feeling a lot of the heat! i really hope everyone will accept her and our 12 member roselia 🌹
