As reported, 20-year-old Yuki Nakashima is newly cast as Lisa Imai, the bassist of girls band Roselia in Bushiroad’s BanG Dream! media mix franchise, as the replacement of Yurika Endoh. The original cast Endoh’s agency Swallow announced her retirement due to health issues back in December 2017, and she will end all of her professional activities as voice actress and artist as of the end of this month.
