Murata Taishi (voice of Hashimoto Shun)
--Can you share your feelings when the theatrical anime adaptation of "Umibe no Étranger" was decided, as well as when your role was decided and when you were reading the script?
Various thoughts appear in my mind. My appreciation of continues this role from the drama CD and the expectation toward the movie. Above all, I am glad that I am able to perform the encountering scene of Mio. Both of their fates were greatly affected, while Mio is slowly becoming more mature, Shun, on the other hand, is struggling like a loser. At the very beginning when I was voicing the drama CD, this scene was impressive and made my heart throb. Even the scripts are filled with the "Étranger" of the production staff, especially the stage direction as well as the lines...! So, I wanted to respond it with all I have along with the burning obsession that is gradually growing as I wanted everyone to see it right away (haha).
--This works is supervised by Kii Kanna-sensei, who is also the character designer, and she was also greatly involved with the production. Can you tell us any highlights?
I personally like the comical expression that was illustrated by Kii Kanna sensei, so I hope it can calm everyone down. During the recording, I remember that it was quite easy in voicing the character as the transition of the character expression from serious to comical was exactly as the manga.
Above everything, the combination between Okinawa and the cat is the best. It a fusion of the spaciousness scenery of the southern island with cuteness. This is the ideal retirement life. Please watch it while thinking about Okinawa and cat.
--Please share your message to the fans who are looking forward to "Umibe no Étranger"
I would like to thank everyone who is looking forward to the movie!
This movie has a more detailed depiction of the romance between Mio and Shun. People always think about their beloved. That is common sense but I found out that.... it actually harder than I thought. Please enjoy watching the movie while letting your emotions run wild and being immersed in the gentle setting of Étranger. I believed there are surely parts were first-timers of Étranger can understand mutually. Please look forward to "Umibe no Étranger"!
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (voice of Tachibana Mio)
--Can you share your feelings when the theatrical anime adaptation of "Umibe no Étranger" was decided, as well as when your role was decided and when you were reading the script?
Even though it had been a while since the first drama CD, I still remember Murata-san mentioning that he wanted to see the animation adaptation during the talk part in the drama CD.
At first, I thought it was a joke but I believed that Murata-san is quite glad that the theatrical adaption was decided.
I am genuinely happy when I heard about my role.
However, I am actually scared since this is my first time voicing a BL role in animation.
When I was reading the script, I thought that it had ended splendidly from the start till the end. Then, my memory during the recording of the drama cd resurfaced, which helps me to enter my role easily!
--As this works is supervised by Kii Kanna-sensei, who is also the character designer, and she was also greatly involved with the production. Can you tell us any highlights?
I was thinking about how to express the sadness of the Mio as the story contains the emotional period of the lonely Mio, but the art has helped me to express it without being too immersed in it. It as if I was drawn in by the beautiful art!
Feeling such as "I want to go to this world at least once!", "I want to travel to there!", “I want to go to the beach!", and "Mugii!” appears inside of me (haha).
I think everyone will get immersed in it as well, so do enjoy the world of Étranger.
--Please share your message to the fans who are looking forward to "Umibe no Étranger"
I had done my best already. I hope that it will leave an impression inside everyone's heart.
Actually, this is a work that will cause various thoughts to appear, such as it was great after it had ended, it was beautiful, and it was quite sad.
Please enjoy it while experience various feelings as it will make you think. Please do look forward to it.

Author: Yoneda Kou
I actually cried after I finished watching it. It stems from the helplessness and desolation of the story itself, and from the fact that I'm the author too. I'm very grateful for having my work turned into images and sounds.
Director: Makita Kaori
There's only a few days left until the release of the movie. And for some reason, it doesn't really feel real somehow.
All the staff, cast, and artists have worked really hard in order to bring the atmosphere and mood of the original manga to life. For the fans of the series, and for the people watching the movie for the first time, please do watch over Yashiro and Domeki throughout their trajectory.
Script: Seko Hiroshi
The pain that Yashiro is holding inside him is something unspeakable of. It something painful and complicated that can't be easily explained in words.
At the same time, it is something that we all have that inside us (whether we are aware of it or not). That's why I think many people will be able to relate to Yashiro and this movie somehow. I find it hard to argue against the fact that Domeki felt this way as well.

What is happiness?
Even if you think you are unhappy, unlucky, or that this place is hell, from the perspective of those around you, it may be heaven. The opposite is also true.
