I have been recording, hoping that many children watch Otoppe, so I am so glad that it will be released as a movie. I am already excited to see Windy performing. I hope a lot of people get to know Otoppe through this movie.
Inagaki Kuremi as Lil
When I watched 'Otoppe' on TV when I was six years old, I immediately became a fan of the songs, and sang 'Uki-Uki Otoppe' many times. I learned that different things had different sounds, and I looked for Otoppe in my house using an app. I was thinking what kind of sound each thing makes, and surprised to listen to some of them for the first time. I wanted to go to Otoppe Town, and I am so glad that my dream will come true as Lil-chan. I am really excited. I love the songs of Otoppe as I cannot help singing them once I hear them. I cannot wait to watch the movie in the theater.
Nishijima Hidetoshi as Westy
Otoppe will finally become a movie! I am so glad. How is the adventure of the characters going to be with their unique worldview? It will be a great work for sure. I will try with all my effort so that kids can enjoy the wonderful movie.
Ushiku Takashi as the Director
I have been involved in Otoppe through scenario writing and ending for the TV series, and YouTube videos. I am glad and very nervous to be a director of this movie. As we are in a difficult time, we will make our best effort more than ever to create a cheerful, enjoyable, but sometimes mysterious musical movie, being true to Otoppe. Please look forward to it!
