On April 4th, singer Nakashima Mika attended a press conference to announce the voice cast of the Japanese dubbed version of the animated movie, 'Despicable Me 2' (scheduled for release in September).

Nakashima will challenge herself to voice acting for the first time with the role of 'Lucy', a mysterious girl who the protagonist 'Gru' falls in love with. While she commented, "It's my first time so I'm very nervous," she also showed enthusiasm saying, "I hope to have as much fun as possible."

This movie is the sequel to 'Despicable Me', which was released back in 2010. Rakugo storyteller Shofukutei Tsurube child actress Ashida Mana will reprise the roles of 'Gru' and 'Agnes'.

After meeting Ashida for the first time in 3 years, Tsurube said, "I'm happy we've met again. She's gotten pretty." Ashida also exclaimed, "I'm happy to see Tsurube-san!"

Before the actual recording, Nakashima did the voice-dubbing for the movie's trailer. "It was difficult. I didn't know anything," she shared. Tsurube, who has already watched the trailer, praised her saying, "You did good!" Nakashima responded, "It's difficult. I don't have any experience, so I am going to practice a lot."
