RAISE A SUILEN was the first band to take to the stage.
After the opening movie, the curtain went up and Raychell (Ba.&Vo.) sang "mind of Prominence" to the audience, which was dyed with colorful lights from the arena to the stands. Lasers were flying wildly.
Then they went on with "A DECLARATION OF XXXX" and "HELL! or HELL?". The band played "UNSTOPPABLE", which was relatively light for the set played that day, "REIGNING" with its tough band sound that sounded anthemic, and "SOUL SOLDIER" with its contrast of thrashy guitar sound and clear melody line.

"On that day, when I lost everything..."
The PV, which begins with the narration of the main character "Yukimura Sakiha" played by Suzuko Mimori, a young girl staring at the "marauder" is projected behind the flames of Guren. And it becomes clear that is aiming for revenge.
The next scene was "Meiji 64".
"Another Japan" where the Tokugawa Shogunate was not destroyed in the Meiji Restoration and Tokugawa Yoshinobu kept his power.
It developed as a glittering metropolis that fused modern science with the culture of the Meiji era.
A monorail-shaped vehicle in a high-rise building with a beautiful night view. And a frog-like wriggling monster...
It seems that each thought is intertwined and becomes a big "swell" to move the gear of fate in the intense action and human drama that unfold in a unique world.

A beautiful woman "Yukimura Sakiha" becomes the assassin of the dark organization "Nue", which belonged to the Tokugawa government.
The next announcement was about the world view and the main characters.
This work is a story set in 1884, which was developed through science and the theory of Yin and Yang.
In this world, the battles between the dissident organization Kuchinawa, which aims to overthrow the government, and the dark organization "Nue", which was entrusted with the extermination of Kuchinawa, unfold in the darkness of the city.
Mimori Suzuko plays Yukimura Saki, who has a double life of the owner of an antiquarian bookstore in daily life, but and is the assassin who belongs to Nue at night.
She belongs to the "blue-blooded clan" with special powers, but her parents were murdered by the Kuchinawa chief "Janome" when she was a kid, so now she becomes a revenger looking for a Janome.
According to Mimori-san, it was such a difficult role that she put every effort as if she had worn away her life, and at the end of the recording, she was always doubting, "Was it good?"
Tsukishiro Makoto, played by Aoi Shouta, is a beautiful woman dressed as a man. She is usually a bandoneon player, but she is also an assassin of Kuchinawa.
She is good at deceiving people and never shows her true intentions. Aoi-san commented that he was expected to understand Tsukishiro's feelings because he often plays a female character. Her sense of mission was renewed.
Hanafu Elena, played by Raychell-san, is an assassin of "Nue" who is a well-known novelist and also a prostitute. She is an emotional, annoying, hedonist who is loyal to her desires.
Raychell-san's first impression of Elena was just "sexy," and she was wondering how she should act. She seems to be enjoying dubbing while receiving the advice of her performance.
Nakamura Asayo, played by Itou Ayasa, is a 7-year-old girl. Although Yukimura Sakiha killed her parents, she is an innocent child who is protected by Yukimura and lives with her. She is a solid person who handles both storekeeping and housework, and she is a unique person whose "world in which she lives" is different from the members of other assassins so far.
Itou-san explained that for that purpose director told her to be "innocent" one.
Hitoshi Kuzuhara, played by Chikahiro Kobayashi, is a person who "exists to protect Tokugawa Yoshinobu." He is the chief of "Nue" and has darkness in himself, but according to Kobayashi-san, he will be spoiled if he thrusts further. It seems that every character has various things, and it is curious about the human drama around that.
Music & Goods information

Both songs were written for "Joran" and have a sound that combines Japanese classic music and rock. Both normal and limited edition CD will be released on April 21.

Voice actors Shimono Hiro and Kaji Yuki played in the TV commercial "no doubt", an animated version of an original corporate tie-up novel by novelist Sumino Yoru, known for "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas".
They play as high school boys who spend time with their friends for no reason. Along with the full-length TV commercial, a making-of video and a video that includes a special interview have also been released.
"no doubt" is a coming-of-age story about two high school boys who don't have club activities or part-time jobs, and spend their time together for no reason. It depicts the ordinary, everyday life when they realize that "that was my youth" as an adult, and the Bourbon’s "rich chocolate brownies" that are with them. This is the first novel written by Sumino, who is known for "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas," and is an original corporate tie-up novel based on the theme of "respecting feelings that have no reason."
In the anime TV commercial, Shimono plays as a high school boy, Imai, and Kaji plays as his classmate, Igarashi, as well as in the previously released audio novel version.
In the special interview, they talk about their impressions of the filming, their youthful episodes related to their roles as high school boys, and their favorite things even if there is no reason for them, along with the theme of the film.
The anime TV commercial "no doubt," a coming-of-age story, in which Shimono Hiro and Kaji Yuki play as high school boys, has been released since April 13.
You can also watch all five episodes of the audio novel version of "no doubt" on Bourbon's official YouTube channel, so check it out as well.
＜Full text of the comments as follows〉
Shimono Hiro as Imai
This time, I played as Imai, but I never thought I'd get to play a part in such a coming-of-age story, and when the director explained that Imai was "the typical type of boy who lives today," which made me a little nervous as I am over 40 years old.
The story is basically from the point of view of Imai. It's a story about the indescribable and exquisite interaction between Igarashi and Imai, which makes me want to keep enjoying the atmosphere that I get from working with Kaji. The rich chocolate brownies are also a keyword in the story, so please enjoy listening to how they appear and how they are expressed. I hope you enjoy it.
Kaji Yuki as Igarashi
I've read Sumino Yoru's works before... and this newly written "no doubt" is a really wonderful story. The unstable feelings and indescribable atmosphere of adolescence were exquisitely expressed through the two boys, Imai and Igarashi. I was trembling from the moment I read the script by myself, so I was really looking forward to seeing what would happen in the recording. I think that the atmosphere of my long-time relationship with Shimono-san is reflected in the work. I'm sure you'll enjoy the taste of the "rich chocolate brownie" to the fullest through the coming-of-age episodes. Please listen to it while biting a "rich chocolate brownie". Thank you very much!

Kimura Subaru Special Interview
ーHow was the shooting?

ーDo you have any preference for your house?
For me, a house is a place where I can be at ease, and relax and create things. So I chill outside, and create rhyming, write songs, or practice acting at home. It may be opposite to what you do. (laugh)
And, my house is basically unified in red. My tableware, pans, towels, and others are all red as well as my sofa and curtain that I show on YouTube. Red is motivating color, so I stick to red so that I can create a lot of things by working surrounded by red.
ーWhat do you want to do in 2021?
I have many, but in terms of my profession, I want go further than being a voice actor. I would like to challenge acting in some drama. I also want to achieve 10000K subscribers on YouTube channel. And I want to be popular with girls!(laugh)
