In the interview, Kitō describes her experience playing the role of Nezuko, as well as the circumstances that led to her accepting the modeling job. “Everybody on the set was complimenting me, so I was happy to be photographed. For Weekly Playboy, they had a strong model image, so I wondered, ‘Am I the right fit?’ (laughs) In my head, I can get the impression that they show a lot of skin.”
