A new trailer and visual of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train" (premiere on Oct. 16, 2020) have been released. In addition, it has been announced that LiSA will continue to be in charge of the theme song as in the TV anime series.
"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" is originally a manga of the same title by Gotouge Koyoharu, which was serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump". When it was adapted into TV anime in 2019, the painful story of humans and demons, the dreadful sword fights portrayed with dynamic images, and the comical characters became popular, and even after the end of the anime, it is still getting a lot of attention.
This film is connected with the scene from the last episode of the TV anime titled "New Mission" where the main character, Kamado Tanjirou, and his friends jump onto the "Mugen Train", which is the setting of this work.
The visual depicts the contrastive figures of Tanjirou grinding his teeth while releasing his full power to attack repeatedly, and the strongest enemy, Enmu, smiling fearlessly while being in a calm mood.
The new trailer starts with the threatening words of Enmu, "To be able to die while dreaming... just how lucky are you?". The next scene shows Tanjirou reuniting with his supposedly deceased sisters, Hanako and Shigeru, and then he senses something and says, "Wake up, we're under attack!", encouraging himself. The battle between Tanjiro and Enmu, which takes place on the running Mugen Train, is a thrilling sequence of actions.
The trailer also marks the first unveiling of the theme song "Homura" by LiSA, which adds a new coloring to the story with the collaboration of Kajiura Yuki, who also worked on the ED of the TV anime series. Comments from the cast including Hanae Natsuki who voices the protagonist Kamado Tanjirou, Hino Satoshi who voices Rengoku Kyoujurou, and LiSA & Kajiura Yuki who are in charge of the theme song have also arrived.
"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train" is set to be released in theaters on Oct. 16, 2020. Advance tickets will be available for sale from Aug. 7.
<Full commentary is below>
Hanae Natsuki as Kamado Tanjirou
Since when I read the original work, there were many scenes in "Mugen Train" that I wanted to play, so I'm very happy to be able to play them in the movie. The recording session was a very exciting moment filled with the voice actors' passionate feelings. After it was over, I screamed so much that I actually thought, "I'm glad I didn't die" until I was burnt out.
It is going to be a great film with beautiful music and scenes produced by ufotable. As a fan, I can't wait to see it. Keep your expectations high!
Kitou Akari as Kamado Nezuko
It's been a long time since the last dubbing session for Demon Slayer. Everyone, including me, was fired up to see the movie adaptation of Mugen Train, which is one of the most popular chapters in the original work! Even though the movie's images were not finished in the recording stage, it was tearful to see the great passion that my colleagues put in their performances, so I hope that the final version will exceed your expectations! Enjoy the movie!
Shimono Hiro as Agatsuma Zen'itsu
The new trailer is amazing...
Of course, there's a lot of new information that can be caught from the footage, but most of all, the movie's theme song "Homura" made it even more exciting. I can't just wait to see the entire movie! Fans, look forward to it!
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu as Hashibira Inosuke
I've seen the trailer, and as expected, the quality of the footage is amazing! I'm very happy that we were able to do our best as voice actors. The enthusiasm in the recording studio was so intense that I almost broke off my heart, but I kept moving forward. I could be aware once again of the amazing power of dialogue. I think that all the fans will be both laughing and crying at this movie, which I hope you'll watch it on the big screen in theaters! Thank you for your support!
Hino Satoshi as Rengoku Kyoujurou
Thank you to everyone who has been looking forward to "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train". With the new trailer being released, I feel tense by the fact that the day of the film's release is finally coming. The "Mugen Train" arc will be a hard mission for Rengoku Kyoujurou's beliefs as a Pillar and for Tanjirou and his team. I did my best in the recordings, so keep your expectations high!
Hirakawa Daisuke as Enmu (Lower Rank 1)
The recording of the scenes was greatly intense with the cast's performance being so realistic and full of passion that I had to control my emotions while voicing Enmu. I hope you will be able to feel the outstanding beauty of the images and music of this movie, along with the cries of the characters' souls.
Following on from the TV anime, I'm in charge of the theme song for "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train". Since it is my favorite chapter in the original work, I feel like this song is very special to me.
I hope that every character in the story and every fan who feels sad right now will be able to move forward strongly with the flame burning in their hearts.
I'm honored to be able to work with LiSA again after the TV anime series.
Among the dramatic episodes of Demon Slayer, the story of the Mugen Train has made a strong impression on me, which is why I'm looking forward to seeing it finished. I hope this song will reach everyone's heart who has watched the movie!

The cast of the Amazon Trio from the movie "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal" (to be released in two parts in 2021) has been revealed: Hino Satoshi as Tiger's Eye, Toyonaga Toshiyuki as Hawk's Eye, and Aoi Shouta as Fish Eye. In addition, comments from the voice actors have also arrived.
It has been announced that actor Takahashi Fumiya and voice actor Umehara Yuuichiro will appear in "Anime Kapibara-san", which will be broadcast on TV Tokyo's "Kinder TV" from Oct. 9. Comments from both of them have also arrived.
"Anime Kapibara-san" is a short anime that shows the "curly" everyday life of Kapibara-san and his friends, a character created by TRYWORKS, a women-only-team from "BANDAI SPIRITS" founded in 2005.
In this work, Takahashi will do the narration, and Umehara will appear in this work as the narrator/zookeeper. The narration has a double cast, and comments arrived from both.
Also, director Tsukimi Tomohiro, who has worked on "Gudetama" and "How clumsy you are, Miss Ueno", explained about why two actors were hired, "Takahashi Fumiya-san's high-pitched, crisp, fresh voice is attractive, and I asked him for narration because I thought it would match the episodes of the stories that center on the energetic characters such as baby Kapi, Atsui-san, and Prarie-san. I also thought his voice would be a nice contrast to Umehara-san's narration!"
Regarding Umehara, "Umehara Yuuichiro-san was asked for narration because of his low-pitched, calm, and gentle voice that would match the episodes with laid-back stories! Also, he will play the only human character and I asked him to use a higher-pitched voice than usualto match the energetic, neutral image of the Otomen character!"
"Anime Kapibara-san" will be broadcast on "Kinder TV" from Oct. 9.
Comments from Takahashi Fumiya
――How did you feel when you were offered this role?
It was my first time to narrate an anime, so I was simply confused as to whether I could handle it or not.
Listening to Umehara-san's voice recorded earlier, I learned how he conveyed the message with such a gentle voice. But there would be no point in me narrating if I copied his style. I wanted to do a narration that matches the world of Kapibara-san in my own style.
――What were your thoughts on narrating?
It was really hard. I've been doing dubbing for a year, but the narration to bring out the best of Kapibara-san and his friends was very difficult. Although the recording time was short, I was able to finish it with the guidance of the director.
Thanks to Kapibara-san and the cute characters, my heart was soothed after watching the video, and I naturally had a warming feeling during the recording.
――What is your favorite character?
It's Regent-kun. Regent-kun, who calls himself "bad boy", dyed his hair purple with lavender because he doesn't like normal things. Isn't that really cute? He smells so nice, haha. I was researching about the characters and he caught my attention even before the recording. He says stop when the baby Kapis gather around him, but he actually looked pleased. He has a tsundere side. He's just like a second-grader, and I think it's very cute. I want to stay at home with Regent-kun, who has the scent of lavender!
Kapibara-san is very normal in a good way. But that's why there are characters like big brother baby Kapi who looks up to Kapibara-san, Regent-kun, who dislikes ordinary things, and other characters stand out. I think it is possible because of the beloved Kapibara-san.
――Please give a message to fans who are looking forward to it.
I did my best to narrate for "Kapibara-san" so that everyone who watches it will get their hearts soothed.
I hope you can also enjoy me getting drawn into the world of "Kapibara-san" towards the final episode. Thank you.
Comments from Umehara Yuuichiro
――How did you feel when you were offered this role?
I wondered if I would fit in this warm and comfortable vibe. Looking at the characters while narrating and dubbing, I felt refreshed. Also, I found how they used pauses and the way they manipulated time very interesting.
――What were your thoughts on narrating and voicing the zookeeper?
At first, I didn't know how close the narrator should be to the characters in the play, so I adjusted it trying again and again. Some episodes had odd lines, such as, "Dainashiiinn" and "Gorgeosooonnn", so it was hard to determine if I would narrate in a funny manner, or stay it emotionlessly. It was difficult to find the right emotions.
The zookeeper is a type of character that I usually don't play, so it was fun. As a gentle person with a neutral vibe, I gathered up the feminine elements in myself for the role. I significantly remember the director telling me to "lighten it up a bit."
――What is your favorite character?
It's Namakemono-kun. The character design is amazing. Is this a creature? Because it looks like a mysterious life-form. He's always zoning out, being silent and mysterious. I think that kind of thing is interesting. There is something that leads to the fun of "manipulation of time" in the whole work. I also like sloths, so he was a character that caught my attention.
Kapibara-san is a character that soothes you out just by looking at him. I think it's perfect for tired-out modern age people.
――Please give a message to fans who are looking forward to it.
The story of each episode is short, but it is a work that makes you feel peaceful. Sit back, relax, and watch it with your head blank. Thank you.

The movie "Sailor Moon Eternal" will be released in two parts; the first part will be released on Jan. 8, 2021, and the second part will be released on Feb. 11, 2021.
Comment by Watanabe Naomi (as Zirconia)
I never dreamed that I could appear in my favorite series "Sailor Moon", so I was extremely happy! For me, Sailor Moon is the "light of my life". I've loved it since I was a child, and just watching all the Sailor Guardians makes me crying, and I still love it so much that I keep buying all kinds of items.
When I was offered the role, I wondered if it was for a new Sailor Guardian. But it was Zirconia as the antagonist (laugh). She's a villain and an old woman character, so I had to lower my voice quite a bit and do it while almost crushing my throat. Even though my heart hurts, I made sure Zirconia's feelings were felt in my acting, "I'll defeat the Sailor Guardians!". I think she is the character that most fits me so far.
In the movie, you can see the cool Sailor Guardians, as well as many powerful enemies. It's a work that not only our generation but also parents and their children and teenagers will be able to enjoy! I hope you're all excited and looking forward to it!

The manga "Umibe no Étranger" (by Kii Kanna and published by Shodensha), which takes place on the island off the coast of Okinawa and depicts the innocent love story between a greenhorn novelist and a young boy, had captured the hearts of many people and the theatrical anime is handled by the BL anime Label "BLUE LYNX". Since this movie was released on Sep. 11, 2020, let's reviews the work beforehand.
The greenhorn novelist, Shun unexpectedly called out to the young boy, Mio at the beachside.
---"Hey, you there!"
Because of that Mio had also started to be conscious of Shun, but he has to leave the island no matter what. Mio left after saying "I want to become an adult as soon as possible".
After three years, Mio returns to Shun. He had become slightly mature. With an innocent bright smile. When the unrequited thoughts were responded, the stopped time starts to run again...
The work is based on the manga "Umibe no Étranger" (published by Shodensha) by Kii Kanna.
This anime adaptation is supervised by the author Kii Kanna, who is also an ex-animator, and she is also in charge of the character design.
The animation production was created with a mixture of 2D and 3D animation and is handled by the long-established studio "Studio Hibari", who is known for "Major", and "Monster Strike". The director is Oohashi Akiyo, who had shown her superb skill such as "Danganronpa The Animation" as well as the animation PV for the sales commemoration of "Houseki no Kuni" Vol 1.
The drama between the characters, the beautiful nature of Okinawa, the lights, coloring, and the audio are all drawn carefully with fixation.
This work is the third work of the BL specialized anime Label "BLUE LYNX" after "Twittering Birds Never Fly: The clouds gather" and "Given the Movie".

Murata Taishi (voice of Hashimoto Shun)
--Can you share your feelings when the theatrical anime adaptation of "Umibe no Étranger" was decided, as well as when your role was decided and when you were reading the script?
Various thoughts appear in my mind. My appreciation of continues this role from the drama CD and the expectation toward the movie. Above all, I am glad that I am able to perform the encountering scene of Mio. Both of their fates were greatly affected, while Mio is slowly becoming more mature, Shun, on the other hand, is struggling like a loser. At the very beginning when I was voicing the drama CD, this scene was impressive and made my heart throb. Even the scripts are filled with the "Étranger" of the production staff, especially the stage direction as well as the lines...! So, I wanted to respond it with all I have along with the burning obsession that is gradually growing as I wanted everyone to see it right away (haha).
--This works is supervised by Kii Kanna-sensei, who is also the character designer, and she was also greatly involved with the production. Can you tell us any highlights?
I personally like the comical expression that was illustrated by Kii Kanna sensei, so I hope it can calm everyone down. During the recording, I remember that it was quite easy in voicing the character as the transition of the character expression from serious to comical was exactly as the manga.
Above everything, the combination between Okinawa and the cat is the best. It a fusion of the spaciousness scenery of the southern island with cuteness. This is the ideal retirement life. Please watch it while thinking about Okinawa and cat.
--Please share your message to the fans who are looking forward to "Umibe no Étranger"
I would like to thank everyone who is looking forward to the movie!
This movie has a more detailed depiction of the romance between Mio and Shun. People always think about their beloved. That is common sense but I found out that.... it actually harder than I thought. Please enjoy watching the movie while letting your emotions run wild and being immersed in the gentle setting of Étranger. I believed there are surely parts were first-timers of Étranger can understand mutually. Please look forward to "Umibe no Étranger"!
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (voice of Tachibana Mio)
--Can you share your feelings when the theatrical anime adaptation of "Umibe no Étranger" was decided, as well as when your role was decided and when you were reading the script?
Even though it had been a while since the first drama CD, I still remember Murata-san mentioning that he wanted to see the animation adaptation during the talk part in the drama CD.
At first, I thought it was a joke but I believed that Murata-san is quite glad that the theatrical adaption was decided.
I am genuinely happy when I heard about my role.
However, I am actually scared since this is my first time voicing a BL role in animation.
When I was reading the script, I thought that it had ended splendidly from the start till the end. Then, my memory during the recording of the drama cd resurfaced, which helps me to enter my role easily!
--As this works is supervised by Kii Kanna-sensei, who is also the character designer, and she was also greatly involved with the production. Can you tell us any highlights?
I was thinking about how to express the sadness of the Mio as the story contains the emotional period of the lonely Mio, but the art has helped me to express it without being too immersed in it. It as if I was drawn in by the beautiful art!
Feeling such as "I want to go to this world at least once!", "I want to travel to there!", “I want to go to the beach!", and "Mugii!” appears inside of me (haha).
I think everyone will get immersed in it as well, so do enjoy the world of Étranger.
--Please share your message to the fans who are looking forward to "Umibe no Étranger"
I had done my best already. I hope that it will leave an impression inside everyone's heart.
Actually, this is a work that will cause various thoughts to appear, such as it was great after it had ended, it was beautiful, and it was quite sad.
Please enjoy it while experience various feelings as it will make you think. Please do look forward to it.
