<Here are the comments listed below>
Creator・Amagi Seimaru's message
In order to prevent the widespread transmission of COVID-19, as all of you might know, production and announcements of new works such as television programs, stage performances, and events, have all been canceled. Stage productions, movie creators as well as their staff have never been more troubled. Due to people being unable to meet or gather, this industry has taken great hits to it.
I think that TV viewers, drama fans are currently re-watching reruns or rental dramas and are stressing out due to the dilemma of being unable to watch anything new.
We are currently working on "The Kindaichi Case Files" manga (currently being serialized in Kodansha's evening magazine as "37 Year Old Kindaichi Case Files"). However, after witnessing the danger to the entertainment industry, I wondered if there was anything we could do to contribute and began researching during this time of quarantine.
The result of that is this news release of the "Stay Home Murder Mystery" mystery drama from "The Kindaichi Case Files" utilizing Zoom as a medium (Estimated to be about 60 minutes long in total).
Regarding the drama
The new story's scenarios are penned by the author of "The Kindaichi Case Files", Amagi Seimaru. The actors that will be featured on the broadcast will not gather in the studio to record, but will deliver a live performance over Zoom at their home with the script provided.
Additionally, the main character of the manga, Kindaichi Hajime and Nanase Miyuki will have their faces edited by an animation app and will make an appearance within the Zoom screen as well.
The voice acting performance will be done by the two very same voice actors who acted as juvenile Kindaichi and Miyuki in "The Kindaichi Case Files" anime.
The story will begin with the case of a mysterious murder of an elderly woman in a stately mansion. Suspects will appear one-by-one on the Zoom screen to appeal their innocence. In the midst of them lies the culprit, and it is up to the genius of juvenile Kindaichi to solve the case.
Regarding the production
The production's main staff consists of Amagi Seimaru, and a few of his friends, and the work was produced by computers and smartphones. The production fees did not amount to too much. There were a lot of first time challenges but I am confident that the end product is very interesting.
In these circumstances, performers who are unable to perform onstage, voice actors, everyone in stage production crews and even myself - are sharing information and trying our best to be positive. As a shout of encouragement for everyone, I've worked hard on this zoom mystery drama.
From here onward, I want to keep on planning and producing with "I am able to do this precisely because of the situation" and "friends I am able to connect to because of this" in mind. I want to open a path for a brand new entertainment industry in a post COVID-19 society.

＜Full commentary is below＞
【Uchida Maaya as Oita Rika】
――As this is your first time appearing in a serious detective drama, how did you feel when you first received the offer?
I was surprised as I didn't expect to receive an offer to appear in a detective drama, which make me think "Am I suitable?". However, I will take on this challenge as someone will be happy about it. I am waiting for the broadcast now!
――As the first witness and the campsite staff member, Oita Rika, what did you pay attention for this role?
I thought that I had to act naturally so I wouldn't look out of place. I kept in mind that I would have a scary face if I thought too much on the arrangement! So, I acted in a way that makes the workplace look fun and bright.
――There was a difficult scene where you give out a cry after spotting the dead body, do tell us the events during the shooting for that!
It was really a difficult scene because after adjusting my emotion steadily, I ended up shouting "Kyaa!" in the end during that scene! I wasn't able to do it well, so there were a lot of retakes for it. It was like a different world as I have to remember the movement, camera position along with the lines, but it was quite fun and I notice that there is still a long way for me as there are various types of plays out there.
――What is your thought while performing along with veteran actors such as Kaneda Akio-san, Saitou Yuki-san, and Shaku Yumiko-san?
They're so cheerful and I was happy to exchange some words with them at the workplace . Once the camera started rolling, I was glad to be able to enter the world of "Sousa Ichikachou"!
――Please give a message to the audience!
As this is a rare opportunity for me, I hope everyone can enjoy it! Do look forward to Oita Rika working at the campsite and her surprised face!"

<Full commentary is below>
[Shimono Hiro, the voice of Anubis]
■Impressions of your character
Anubis is a very honest and gentle child.
He gets very excited when he is with his friends, and shows to be a naive and innocent soul.
From the other side, he can also be mature and thoughtful of his friends, which proof is given when he is suddenly attacked by one of them and he first tries to understand their reasons before making a fuss about it.
Although it features a warm atmosphere, I like to see that it also includes an unexpected and funny turn of events.
Also, I like how the Egyptian Gods are unfazed by everything, which is kind of cute!
■A message to the fans
That was a little unexpected...
The anime "Toutotsu ni Egypt Kami" is a very interesting work!
It's a heartwarming comedy filled with cute characters who sometimes show to be calm and relaxed, and sometimes get totally mad.
I think that everyone can enjoy this work, so I'd be happy if many of you watched it.
[Kaji Yuuki, the voice of Thoth]
■Impressions of your character
Thoth is the God of Wisdom who is known for his elegant use of language.
That's why I got the impression that he talks very briskly.
At the same time, he also looks very cute with a carefree personality, so I tried to create a well-balanced play by combining the two different sides of his character.
Since Thoth and Anubis had to say together the line, "Zuttomo desu" (Friends Forever), I truly enjoyed playing him while being careful of the tempo synchronization with my partner.
■A message to the fans
I'm very honored to be a part of the so much popular "Toutotsu ni Egypt Kami".
When I saw the videotape recorder we received in advance for the dubbing, I thought at first, 'It would be absolutely great if it turned out like this!'. But when we finished the recording session, I felt like it became even more interesting than before.
We're still working on all the characters' voices and plays...
I haven't been able to listen to the finished work, so I can't wait to see it!
I hope that those who have been supporting this work so far will be able to entirely enjoy it, so keep your expectations high!
It was a great pleasure to give my voice to Thoth!
