-Please tell us how you felt when your appearances as the Ethan in the Japanese version of "Dragon's Dogma" was decided.
I was dubbing Pawns in the game, so I thought I'll be aawn. I was surprised when I heard what role I got.
If it's a pawn, it's a system that allows you to choose a role from quite a few different variations, so it may have been more difficult than having me play Ethan in this film in a different way.
-This work will be streamed to 190 countries on Netflix, so please send a message to domestic and oversea fans who are looking forward to it.
I felt that the dark fantasy essence of the game has been shown more deeply and emotionally in the anime.
Although there are many shocking scenes, I think it is a story that makes you think and can be enjoyed with or without gameplay.

At midnight on September 24, 2020, the last episode of the TV anime "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax" had been broadcast. After the 3-seasons TV anime series finale, Eguchi Takuya, Hayami Saori, Toyama Nao, the original author, Watari Wataru, and other related people posted their thoughts on Twitter.
"My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected. (abbreviated as "OreGairu") is a romantic comedy about "youth that keeps making mistakes" about a high school boy, Hikigaya Hachiman, who, by a certain reason, was forced to join the "Service Club" with Yukinoshita Yukino, who is breathtakingly beautiful but forthright, and Yuigahama Yui, a Gyaru-girl who belongs to the top caste of the class.
It is based on the light novel under the same name by Watari-san that had been published in Shogakukan "Gagaga Bunko" from 2011 to 2019. The first season of TV anime was released in 2013, the second "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too!" in 2015, and the third "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax" just has been finished.
On September 24th, "Special live streaming just before the final episode 'My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax'" had been streamed on YouTube and Nico Nico Live Broadcasting.
Eguchi Takuya as the main character Hikigaya Hachiman, Hayami Saori as Yukinoshita Yukinoshita, and Toyama Nao as Yuigahama Yui, had appeared on the show, and the final episode gathered together fans and cast.
After the broadcast, Eguchi-san posted a thank-you message via Twitter, "When I came out for fresh air, it was raining. I don't need an umbrella. Thank you, everyone."
Hayami-san tweeted with a photo from live-broadcast, "Thank you for the for the "OreGairu!" live broadcast! And for those who watched the final episode and for those who are going to... Thank you so much for walking all the way with "OreGairu!". I can't put it into words..."
Higashiyama-san screamed with his love for his character, "Thank you very much for supporting "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax" I am full of gratitude and respect for all the staff members. And I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has spun youth together for many years." "And for Yui, I did my best. Thank you for our meeting! I love you !!".
Watari-san, the original author of "OreGairu" recalled, saying, "It's been 10 years since I've created the most fun, painful, dreadful, disgusting, disgusting, and irresistible place. A year I spent with Yawata and his friends was the longest year in my life.", and he revealed his heart, saying, "It was my youth. It was my youth and everyone's youth. Only one year has passed, and tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and the future will continue for a long time. Ah! !! I wonder how to live from tomorrow!"
Also, the number of comment tweets from many people who have been involved in "OreGairu" production, including the official Twitter of "Gagaga Bunko" and the production studio "Feel", keeps raising.

In 2020, she appeared in "Cells at Work! The Return of the Strongest Enemy. A Huge Uproar Inside the Body's "Bowels"!", and "By the Grace of the Gods"
Therefore, to celebrate Inoue Kikuko's birthday, like last year, we conducted a reader survey entitled, "Who is your favorite character played by Inoue Kikuko?" During the survey period from Sep. 10th to Sep. 17th, we received responses from 72 people.

■Macrophages topped the list for the second year in a row! Gap is popular.
The 1st place goes to Macrophages from "Cells at work!" again like last year, with an approval rating is about 25%.
Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that are present in the blood. Some comments pointed out the character's appeal of both kindness and power, "She has the appearance of a beautiful woman, but I love the duality of laughing while killing bacteria in the blood.", and "Even though it looks kind, I like her fighting with an ax."
"Cells at Work! The Return of the Strongest Enemy. A Huge Uproar Inside the Body's "Bowels"!" has been released now, and maybe it's another reason why it's leading.
2nd place goes to Tendo Kasumi from "Ranma 1/2", and it's the same rank as last year.
Many people commented about how well the match between actress and character are, "I know about Kikuko-san because of the "Ranma 1/2". She was perfect for Kasumi's unfussy older sister, and I was shocked that there were people who matched the character and the person that much.", and "Natural and gentle, Kikuko is like an older sister herself!"
There were many votes from teens and twenties, saying, "Her calm atmosphere that doesn't fade over time is perfect! I wasn't even born at the time of the broadcast, but it's my favorite work."
3rd place goes to Chianti from "Detective Conan". It has gone up a rank from 4th place last year.
Chianti is a member of the Black Organization and a great sniper. The great acting of warlike personality gained popularity, "I like her uplifting voice", and we have received comments from people who get touched by the darkness of the movie version. The villainous side of the character that stands in the way of the protagonists was at the top of the list.
■Let's introduce other comments
About Electra from "Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water", "A beautiful, cool, tough and awesome woman.. The scenes with Captain Nemo are very impressive."

To be honest, I was surprised by the offer to voice Ultraman 80, but since it was from director Sakamoto, who I trust, I gladly accepted the offer.
I haven't been involved with the series for a while, so I felt nostalgic when I was given the script.
Since there weren't any Ultraman 80 lines with Yamato Takeru's voice at the time, this recording was very refreshing.
It's been a while since Ultraman 80 last appeared. Thank you for your support over the years, and please continue to believe in us.
The story is set in the time when Ultraman Ribut, the elite member of the "Galaxy Rescue Force", was a Civilization Observer.
Along with Ultraman Max, Ribut detects a strange sign on a planet, but it was a trap by the enemy with a thirst for vengeance.
Max defends Ribut and is in deep danger! At the same time, Ultraman 80 and Julian are attacked by Lugosite.
But this was only the beginning of "The Absolute Conspiracy"!
Who is the mysterious golden giant (Absolute Tartarus) plotting in the shadows? Can Ribut and his team save Max and fend off the threat of the enemy?
Tens of thousands of years ago, in the age of the Great Ultra War.
During the fierce battles between the Kaiju Forces led by Alien Empera and the Land of Light, Ultraman Ken (later to become the Father of Ultra) and Ultraman Belial both distinguished themselves in battle.
Though they were heroes that fought side by side, Ken was promoted to become the commander of the Inter Galactic Defense Force and even wins the heart of Ultraman Marie (later to become the Mother of Ultra), while Belial couldn't stand the gap between them becoming wider and wider.
He seeks more power and goes out of control... That's when the golden giant (Absolute Tartarus) appears and whispers to him.
"Don't you want to change your fate?"
After defeating Grimdo, Taiga and the rest of the Tri-Squad are training in space, when the "Ruler of All Zetton", Space Fear-Demon Zett attacks them!
Summoning various Zettons, Fear-Demon Zett puts the Tri-Squad in deep danger!
Ultraman Zero and the other Ultramans take a new measure to fight against the golden giant (Absolute Tartarus), who was plotting everything from the shadows.
With the rookie Inter Galactic Defense Force member, Ultraman Z, joining Ultraman Mebius and his other amazing senpais, they stand against the absolute conspiracy!

Comment from Iwata Mitsuo as Ijichi Kiyotaka
I'm playing a certain type of character that I haven't played much recently, so I'm really looking forward to playing it from now on. Although my character is in the middle management position, I would like to express his cuteness and playfulness well and make everyone love him.

I felt that she is a cold but good person, so I wanted to play her so that others can seeto put out a lot of her attractive points.
Comment by Kuroda Takaya as Yaga Masamichi
He is sort of like Chono Masahiro, so he is very manly and powerfully. I would like to show his depth and wisdom as a president when I playplaying him.

He is human-like. I'm proud to play Todo-kun. I hope you enjoyed it!

Comment by Akasaki Chinatsu as Miwa Kasumi
Among the characters with strong habits, I want to cherish her "ordinary feeling" and, on the contrary, play it so that she'll be treated individuality!
Comment from Mugihito as Rakuiwaji Yoshinobu
Is he strong or weak? I want to play him with a sense of with mysterious eerieness. I'll do my best!

I think that he must be able to firmly express his feelings and facial expressions that change drastically, and the changes, when he gets oppressed and after he acquired the magical power.
Comment by Sakurai Takahiro as Geto Suguru
I will do my best to play along with the director's image firmly so as not to spoil the atmosphere of the original. I look forward to working on it!

He is not human, so he can do whatever he wants (laughs). I want to enjoy all thethe all emotions to the fullest! (^ ω ^)

Hanami's voice cannot be understood by explaining within words, but I hope you enjoy it with a strong desire to protect and excellent fighting ability.

Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it. He ishas not a bad or weak, so I'll open up again, have fun and laugh as much as I can.
