Making Eguchi Takuya and Umehara Yuichiro "so tacky"!? Namikawa Daisuke & Ishikawa Kaito had a good sense in "Say You to Yo Asobi (Thu)"
Voice actors Namikawa Daisuke and Ishikawa Kaito appeared in "Say You to Yo Asobi (Thu) [Namikawa Daisuke, Ishikawa Kaito] #15", which was broadcast on the "Anime LIVE Channel" of the new future TV "ABEMA" on July 29, 2021.
In this episode, Eguchi Takuya and Umehara Yuichiro appeared as guests. Besides that Namikawa and Ishikawa produced the two guests in a tacky way in "Let’s examine if a hot guy is hot no matter what he does!", and they also examined the two, who are unflappable by anything, on the moment when their hearts were touched in a corner, "Where is the deadline for Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched?" and more.
It had been a long time since Eguchi was the Monday MC of "Say You to Yo Asobi 2nd season" and Umehara hadn't appeared as a guest in 1 year and 9 months. It’s been a long time for both of them to join the show, but started in a relaxed mood; they did a skit with dummy head mikes, talked about an episode of a drinking party with Ishikawa, whom he "knows well".
Eguchi and Umehara are currently appearing in the TV animation "TSUKIPRO THE ANIMATION 2", which is also being broadcast on "ABEMA". This anime is set in the entertainment agency TSUKIPRO, TSUKINO TALENT PRODUCTION, and depicts the human drama of the four units that belong to the agency with music full of uniqueness. Eguchi plays as Takamura Shiki and Umehara plays as Murase Dai, both belonging to "SolidS".
Eguchi talked about the charm saying, "The interesting thing about this work is that the characters get old every year!" Umehara nodded his head heartily and said, "We can grow old together, can't we?" He talked about the joy of the TSUKIPRO world where you can grow old together with the characters. Eguchi also mentioned that the characters' personalities change as they get older and said, "That's one of the fun parts of acting." He revealed that he enjoyed how the characters grow while acting.
The show continued with the "Let’s examine if a hot guy is hot no matter what he does!" corner. In this corner, Namikawa and Ishikawa produce two stylish and cool guests by coordinating their clothes and walk in a tacky way. Namikawa produces Eguchi and Ishikawa produces Umehara.
Eguchi and Umehara seemed to be excited about the idea of being produced in a tacky way, saying "I hope they'll break through" and "If we're going to do it." The Ishikawa and Umehara team immediately started coordinating, but Ishikawa struggled with Umehara, who looked good in everything, saying, "He looks good when I put the clothes on. He struggled with the coordination, but "So Tacky Fashion Show: Tacky Collection" began.
First of all, Umehara appeared on stage wearing denim with a swan popping out of his pants, looking as hilarious as a comedian. Everyone burst into laughter at the gap. However, Namikawa and Eguchi immediately accepted it and said, "That's nice." and "How can I say? Isn't he cool?", which was an unexpected reaction. Ishikawa, the producer of tacky fashion, was frustrated, saying "It looks good on you" and "I couldn't hide how cool he is."
The Namikawa and Eguchi team followed, wearing red pants, rose-patterned shirts, and frilly heart aprons, which makes it look eccentric. As Eguchi walked down the runway in a joyful mood, they praised him saying, "Doesn't this look like a fashion show?" and "On the contrary, he looks like wearing a high brand." However, when Eguchi returned to the studio, he unexpectedly changed his mind, saying, "It's very different being here," and "It's gotta be a runway," which was a turnover.
As a result, the Namikawa and Eguchi team ended up with an overwhelming victory. Umehara, who had just devoted himself, said masochistically, "I’m the one who did the dirty work," which made the studio once again filled with laughter.
The four enjoyed the corner "Where is the deadline for Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched?," which was to find out the moment when the unflappable Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched by questions including "A random restaurant tastes really good," "Winning 5,000 yen with a scratch card," and "The costume provided is a bathing suit." Looking back on the 90-minute live broadcast, Umehara said, "This is the most fun I've had this year," indicating that they had enjoyed a stimulating night out.
At the end of the show, it was announced that Ishiya Haruki would appear as a guest next time on August 5, which made the audience look forward to what kind of night out they would have next time.
