The latest trailer of the movie “Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes” (premiere on Apr. 24, 2020) has been released. In addition, “Giga Aishiteru” by Rekishi has been chosen for the theme song, which was also used in the newest trailer.
“Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes” is the 28th production in the “Crayon Shin-chan” movie series, a “Rakugaki disaster movie that drags into a whirlpool of laughter and excitement.”
The story is set in “Rakuga Kingdom”, a floating kingdom that gets its energy from the scribbles on the earth.
However, with the flow of the times, the scribbles start to decline considerably, making the kingdom in danger of collapse. Because of this, the Royal Army of “Rakuga Kingdom” started to advance to the earth to carry out a strategic plan called “Ukiuki Kakikaki Operation”, where it forces human beings to scribble and it will determine the fate of “Rakuga Kingdom”. It just happens that underneath the kingdom is the city of Kasukabe where Shinnosuke and the others were living in… Will Shinnosuke be able to save Kasukabe with the “almost four heroes” drawn with the “Miracle Crayon”, which he obtained by accident?
The latest trailer shows the almost four heroes gathered together including Shinnosuke, a hero who obtained the “Miracle Crayon” which brings the drawn scribbles to life, along with the strongest (?) scribbles drawn by it, Buriburizaemon, the fake Nanako, and Brief.
However, they find out that the scribbles drawn by the Miracle Crayon disappear if it got wet by water… What destiny awaits for Shinnosuke and the scribbles? Stay tuned for it!
In addition to the already well-known characters of the series such as the Nohara family and the Kasukabe Defence Force, the cast includes; Buriburizaemon (voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi), the Minister of Defense of “Rakuga Kingdom” (voiced by the special voice actor Yamada Yuuki), the three Kingdom advisors Ringo, Ichigo, Melon (all three voiced by Ringo-chan), and the Princess of the kingdom voiced by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, who has just started her professional activity as a voice actor.
Regarding the singer in charge of the theme song, the entertainer Rekishi, who produces songs full of humor related to historical events and also participates in other various activities such as acting, was announced. In the second half of the preview trailer, the theme song “Giga Aishiteru” was used, which combines the main theme of this work “Rakugaki” (scribble) and the most representative “Rakugaki” in history, “Choujuu-jinbutsu-giga” (Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans).
“Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes” will be released in nationwide Toho cinemas from Apr. 24, 2020.

My name is Rekishi, I will be in charge of the theme song.
I didn't expected to receive this offer, since I just make songs related to Japanese history. But I'm happy to do it! I'm extremely delighted!
I will do my best to get along with my favorite character Shin-chan ♪
Since the theme of this movie is scribbles, the thing that came into my mind is the “Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans”.
I was able to understand better the image behind the movie by the words received from the director, “The courage to take a new step” and “If you start running, your thoughts will come true”.
“If you keep doing it, you dream will come true” means that, if you don't reach any success now that you have done your best to create your work, it is possible that it will be highly evaluated 100 or 1000 years later.
Perhaps, even the Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans were drawn by someone on a whim? The person who drew it could never imagine it to be a famous work at this time?
I made the song while following that exciting thought.
I would be happy if you could listen to it with the fun atmosphere of the Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans, which is said to be the first manga in Japan.
I am 5 years old. My life history is short and my depth of love comes from a European blend. I'm Nohara Shinnosuke.
I'm so grateful to have met Rekishi-san! He's such a good person that he can even compete with Ora (me)!
The song was perfect for the movie. It was a wonderful song that made me want to scribble!
It can be enjoyed by both adults and children. Please listen to it! Crayo～n
