(On the reason for Ootake Shinobu's appointment)
The co-producers recommended Ootake Shinobu for the role of Nikuko-chan, so I said, "Why don't you offer her the role? Then Ootake-san said to me, "You (Sanma-san) really wanted me to play the role, didn't you?" But I didn't say that (lol). I told her that if she wanted to ask me for a job, she had to go through official channels.
Director Watanabe also said that Nikuko-chan and Ootake-san hit it off, and the role of Nikuko-chan was decided first.
I'm grateful that she accepted the offer. I'm counting on her.
Nikuko-chan (voice actress): Ootake Shinobu
I read the original story and laughed and cried. Watching the video, I laughed and cried even more.
I admire Nikuko-chan for being able to accept even the hardest of times with a smile and a "Haha-hah".
I really felt that the producer, Sanma-san, really likes to see people laughing. That's why he made this movie.
I will do my best to deliver happiness to everyone without destroying that.

The released date of Disney and Pixar's latest film "Luca" has been decided. It will be released on June 18, 2021 in the US and Japan at the same time. The poster visual and trailer have been released as well.
"Luca" takes place in a beautiful seaside city in north Italy and it is the latest film of Pixar that depicts the "best summer".
In the seaside city, Port Rosso, the main protagonist, Luca enjoys his summer together with his friend.
However, Luca has a certain "secret". The truth is he is not a human, once he gets wet, his true identity, a "Sea Monster" that can swim freely in the sea, appears.
The humans are scared of the sea monsters that they have never seen before, and the sea monsters are afraid of the humans as well.
As the sea monsters are not allowed to be exposed to humans, the "Human City" is actually a "Taboo World" to them. Despite that, because of Luca's curiosity, he broke the law and went to the human city...
The poster depicts Luca floating on the clean blue sea while looking up at the summer sky. However, if you look closely at the sea, you will be able to see the "secret", which is the appearance of the sea monster that shouldn't be exposed.
The director of this film is Enrico Casarosa, the director of Pixar's short animation "La Luna". Casarosa is known as a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and he tried to produce the art of "La Luna" in watercolor after he found out that the art of "Ponyo" was depicted in the watercolor painting by Miyazaki Hayao.
The comments from the director said, "When I was still a child, I met a boy, who live in a different world than me, in summer. So, by using those summer memories, I wanted to create a story about a boy becoming an adult."
The film "Luca" will be released on June 18, 2021, in Japan nationwide.
