After doing a lot of fun promotion at cons and events over the last few months for SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation with Jessica Nigri, it’s now been rvealed that she’s going to be the voice actress for it as well, which really isn’t a surprise to anyone paying attention to it.
“I always felt a connection with Sonico,” said Jessica Nigri. “She’s just got such a positive and genuine spirit about her that when they asked me about playing the part, I squealed with joy! It’s like my dream was finally coming true. Being here with my Sentai family has been surreal.”
Sentai recently announced a May 26th, 2015 release date for the series on DVD and Blu-ray. It’s easy to imagine there will be some fun new extras made for the release with what Nigri has done at the cons and interacting with the fans.
“Jessica delivers the perfect spice for our production of the series,” said David Del Rio, Vice President of Sentai Filmworks. “She truly embodies Sonico.”
Plot concept: Saying Sonico is an incredibly busy young woman is an understatement. She juggles a modeling career, part-time work at her grandmother’s bar, performs lead vocals and guitar in an all-girl band, ALL while attending college! Not to mention taking care of her five cats. Or is that the other way around? When her workload gets a little too heavy, she can count on her fellow musicians Suzu and Furi, and the rest of her friends for a stabilizing influence. Get ready for the bounciest adventure ever as this three girl band shakes, rattles, rolls and takes Tokyo by storm in Super Sonico: The Animation!
