In the latest sixth episode of the spring 2022 TV anime Onipan! streamed last night in Japan, it was revealed that Noririn, the top idol whose true identity had been shrouded in mystery, was voice by Miyu Tomita (Yume Nijino in Aikatsu Stars!, Riko in Made in Abyss).
The anime's official website introduces her as "The top idol Noririn. The PV of her new song got 100 million views on the same day it was released! She also has one of the world's top SNS followers! She sings, appears in a variety of TV shows and dramas, and is truly the most powerful top idol in the world!" Tomita has also voiced Noriko Issun, a classmate of the protagonist Tsutsuji, and Noririn is the transformed form of her using a magic tool from her ancestor, the "Uchide no Kozuchi" (Magic Mallet).
In the episode, an insert song "Tokimeki ♡ Wonderland" sung by Noririn was revealed for the first time. The song will be included in the CD single of the anime's theme song "Onipapapan! Pan!" to be released on June 1.
Message from Miyu Tomita:
"The news has finally been revealed…! I'm Miyu Tomita, and I am playing the role of Noriko Issun and 'Noririn.' 'Tokimeki ♡ Wonderland" is a very cute song that is a classic idol song, but also has a nostalgic feel to it. I tried to pack in the maximum amount of 'kawaii' that I can express, so please enjoy it!"
