Hi, the source article did not mention Kanjiya Shihori though. Do you mind sharing with me where the information appeared?

At times, the articles don't mention everything or everyone involved in the drama or movies or the names of all who attended an event. As I am translating based on the source articles only, you may notice discrepancies with what you know or have heard of from elsewhere. It would be great if you can share such information with me so that I can add on to my original post. Thanks!
