The first half of "The Kindaichi Case Files"'s Zoom drama "STAY HOME Murder Mystery" is scheduled to broadcast on May 31, 2020 and the second half will be on Jun. 6, 2020.
<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 comments are below>
Hanazawa Kana (Xiaohei) comments
Xiaohei is a character that combines the cuteness of cats and children. I kept in mind to make her cute! and pure! while playing her.So take it both and be cute! That's it! I played keeping this thought in mind.
Xiaohei is exiled from where he used to live, and that begins his growth. He thinks for himself that who is a friend or an enemy. He also experiences an incidents which drastically changes his value, and he gets tougher by experiencing such hardships.At the start of the story, Xiaohei being chased from where he used to live. That is the beginning of his growth. Who is your friend? Who is your enemy? He tries to live judging others this way. Moreover, he found put that the values can be turned upside down.
However, through such a situation, though constant worries, Xiao Hei becomes stronger.
That's why the scene where Xiaohei fights with a strong will is so impressive. The dynamics of the battle scene is the charm of this work, butthe facial expressions and staging of the cute Xiaohei fighting bravely are the best. the look and performance of the cute Xiaohei when he bravely fights is the best. It is a nice opportunity to see each other at the movie theater in the society with an ongoing hardship. Please look forward to it!It's a choking life, but I think it's a wonderful opportunity to have a big adventure in the cinema. Do look forward to it!
Miyano Mamoru (Mugen) comments
I was first drawn into dynamic actions and delicate expression of the animations.I was first for me to participate in animation with such delicate expression, bold action, and politeness.
In this story, fairies and humans living together butand have complicated relationships. There are good and bad behaviorspoints in things in both sides, which creates conflicts. This movie also deals with a very universal theme like "is it to avoid conflict?".Is it possible to avoid conflicts? This work is also dealing with a very universal theme.
Mugen is a human who is involved in the fairy world. I had his "position" of between humans and fairies in my mind, while playing himHe stays boldly on his "position" of between humans and fairies. It is cool to see how his belief can be seen through "position". MoreoverAnd in the movie, Mugen meets Xiaohei, and many others. And thanks to meeting Xiaohei, who is not afraid of anything, we can see what is really matters to each of them.
I am very happy to be able to join the work with such a gorgeous cast memberscast. Please enjoy it at the cinema.
Sakurai Takahiro (Fengxi) comments
Fengxi is a very empathetic character. His actions may not be right, but there is always a "reason", and I can understand his feelings that "You can't change the world by doing only the right things". He just chasing the light ahead. So I was careful not to make him looks like a villain. When fighting Mugen, he went straight to victory. I think when Xiaohei met Mugen and Fengxi, those two people like light and shadow.
The dynamic actions are skillfully woven into the story of this movieIn this work, the action is skillfully woven into the story. I think it's a difficult experience to enjoy this work with a simple but essential message.I believe it well This is my pride. I met this work as I get able to reconfirm my origin. I hope you can see it on the big screen of the cinema.

Kubozuka Yousuke's Comments
I actually hope for the anime of "Ikebukuro West Park Gate" to be the orthodox and the successor of the original work.
I felt that the live-action drama is more like a spin-off of the original work, and it would be best to not have the anime if it was following the live-action drama.
As I was given the privilege to watch the first episode, all I could say is that the anime is the true successor of the original work.
In a way, you can enjoy the difference from the live-action drama.

The new MC will appear for the first time on Oct. 2, the graduation day of Hanae Natsuki's "Ohasuta".
Hanae Natsuki's comment
Taking over from Yamadera Kouichi, the man I admire so much, and taking charge of the historic program Ohasuta was a constant source of tension.
Even so, I enjoyed the program and made the most of each day's live broadcast.
I've been in charge of the show for 5 years now, and I've reached a milestone turning 30 years old this year.
I also want to try new things and put more effort into my main job as a voice actor.
I also feel a strong desire to spend more time with my family.
The people around me have come to understand that I want to spend more time with my family, and so I've decided to graduate from being the MC for Ohasuta.
I'm really grateful to Ohatomo and the rest of the audience, but most of all, I'm really grateful to my co-stars and the staff for supporting me as a rookie MC and for making the show so much fun.
Thank you so much!

We are leaving the late-night slot, and returning to the evening slot! As we are returning to the evening slot, toward the challenge to deliver the late-night atmosphere to the evening slot, we are quite nervous, actually, we are both nervous and not nervous.
The highlights of Slip Arc is the Gintama's one and only slapstick! I hope that you watch the broadcast of the anime Gintama, which had been a while, with half-closed eyes, as if you are looking after it (haha), and with great laughter. As this will surely hype up the excitement toward the movie. Do enjoy the movie that will be released on Jan. 2021.
