A trailer of the animated movie “Survive!”, which is set to be aired in Jul. 31, 2020, has been revealed. In addition, a special appearance by Takenaka Naoto and new info about the theme song have been announced.

Furthermore, the theme song of the film “Survive!” will be “Yakusoku no Chi he” (To the Promised Land) by Stardust Revue. The Japan's leading rock band, which was also recognized by Guinness World Records as “the band that played the most in 24 hours”, will add a new coloring to the great adventure that takes place in “Survive!”.
The movie “Survive!” is scheduled to be released in Jul. 31, 2020 at the same time as “Ganbareiwa!! Robocon: Urara~! Koi Suru Shiru-Nashi Tantanmen!! no Maki”.
Takenaka Naoto (as the laboratory's head) Commentary
I really like voicing anime characters, so I was happy when I was offered the role. It was a pretty intense role, but it was fun, and the character design was also charming.
The human internal body is a beautiful universe, so it can be an amazing feeling for a person to be inside another person. If I think about it, I get excited to see how this extraordinary universe will look like in the film.
