<Full comments are as below>
Ueda Reina as CereCere
When I got the role, I felt a lot of pressure, but at the same time, I was very happy. I spent almost every day of my childhood watching my favorite episodes of the Sailor Moon DVD my mother bought me, and I remember enjoying the feeling of as if I was a Sailor Guardian myself. I still have vivid memories of many scenes. With those childhood memories of being absorbed in Sailor Moon, I did my best to deliver those feelings I had back then.
CereCere-san looks very feminine, soft, glamourous, and sometimes shows the cool side of her confident self. I tried to perform her with a soft and fluffy cheerfulness. Above all, I feel that the four members of Amazones Quartet, including CereCere-san, have received a lot of love from many people and kept polishing their characters. We did our best to bring out their personalities and charm. Please look forward to the film.
Moroboshi Sumire as PallaPalla
Sailor Moon is known by everyone, and many people have loved it from even before I was born. I myself was hooked on this Sailor Moon Famicom game I had as a child. When I got the role, I felt honored, but at the same time, I felt the responsibility and nervousness that I needed to put my mind to it. I was fascinated by her charm when I watched the early footage of PallaPalla to get ready for the audition, and I really wanted to get this role, so I was very glad that my wishe came true.
She is the youngest sister of the Amazoness Quartet, so I tried to express her childishness and innocence, and make her a loveable villain. She speaks like a child, her facial expressions change constantly, and she is very emotional. I tried my best to portray this personality and charm of hers in my own way. Please look forward to the film!
Hara Yuuko as JunJun
I loved Sailor Moon so much that when I was a child, I wore a costume the whole day pretending to be Sailor Moon. I was so glad to hear the results of the audition. I couldn't believe that I'm going to be in such a popular work, and I was anxious until I received the script. And I felt surprised again when I got the script, haha.
My character JunJun is a bit rough but is a very passionate character. I did my best to portray her devotion along with her strength. Also, JunJun and the Amazoness Quartet is a circus group, so I hope we can express them as a fun group.
It's very exciting work, so please enjoy it at the theaters!
Takahashi Rie as VesVes
The first game I ever became obsessed with was based on "Sailor Moon S". The BGM and screen of decorating cakes and dressing up the characters are still etched in my mind. I never thought I would be part of Sailor Moon. Attending the audition itself was an honor, so I was surprised and delighted.
VesVes has impressing beautiful red hair, wields a whip, and tames beasts. I tried to express her dominant character along with her passionate and feminine sides.
I cherish the opportunity I've been given, and the cast of the Amazoness Quartet worked as one to take on this challenge! I'm looking forward to seeing them move, talk, and stir up the story. Please look forward to it!

The poster's visual and the comments from director Yuasa Masaaki was revealed as well.
"Japan Sinks 2020" is the first anime adaptation of the popular same name novel of Komatsu Sakyou, the famous novelist in Japan Science Fiction industry. While maintaining the theme "The people's identity that was lost along with the country" of the original work that had been published in 1973, the story takes place in Japan in Japan on 2020 and it used a daring setting, which shows the unforeseen disaster from the perspective of a normal family.
It used the fantasy-like element of the anime and an extremely calm perspective that depicts the actual situation that we are facing in the real world such as the grand disaster that appear out of nowhere, races and nationality, various people from different generation and holding different thoughts, and also the internet culture.
It becomes a "work that must be told" as it reflects the sensibility of the audience. However, after the broadcast, there are people who agreed and disagreed on this work in the SNS and it had taken the first place in the nationwide broadcast ranking for few continuous days.
"Japan Sinks 2020 Theatrical Edition - Shizumanuki Bow -", that was decided to be released nationwide, is a restructered of all the ten broadcasted episode, which is filled with various modern world problems. Director Yuasa Masaaki will squeeze the information into a single movie, and the sinkage of Japan in the Reiwa period will surely be something new in terms of the theme and time setting.
Toward the sinkage of Japan, where will the people head to, and how will we respond toward that? Do check out the "story of reality and resuscitation" at the screen, about the people who are pushing toward the ultimate answer without any choice to the future that is connected to their life.
In the poster's visual, it depicts the grand scale of the sunrise at the sunken Japan with Mt. Fuji at the back unlike the visual of the normal Mutou families that are struggling during the disaster, which was the focus during the TV broadcast.
The grand theme of "the hope that arises after the loss of Japan" can be felt after watching all the episode of the TV broadcast.
Regarding "Japan Sinks 2020 Theatrical Edition - Shizumanuki Bow -", Director Yuasa Masaaki commented, "I felt that I had betrayed by the audiences and this is also a difficult obstacle that I need to overcome just like the character from this work. Do check it out at the theatre."
Will this be the answer toward those who agreed and disagreed that appeared during the broadcast and will there more argument coming out after this? Do check out it at the theatre yourselves.
"Japan Sinks 2020 Theatrical Edition - Shizumanuki Bow -" will be released Japan nationwide on Nov. 13, 2020.
<Below are the full comments>
Director: Yuasa Masaaki
The audio made by 5.1ch during the dubbing of episode 1 came out good, so I had thought that it would be a waste if this was not seen in a good environment. When the broadcast started, we had received a lot of criticism that arises because most of the audiences couldn't figure out the hidden meaning behind it. So, I felt that I had betrayed by the audiences and this is also a difficult obstacle that I need to overcome just like the character from this work. Do check it out at the theatre.

It was announced that Watanabe Naomi will be acting the role of Zirconia in the movie "Sailor Moon Eternal". Also, Watanabe left various comments such as, "I think she is the character that most fits me".
"Sailor Moon Eternal" is a story of love and justice by Takeuchi Naoko, which was serialized in "Nakayoshi" from 1991 to 1997; in 2012, a project to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series started, and in 2014, a new series titled "Sailor Moon Crystal" has been released.
It has been decided that Watanabe Naomi will play the role of Zirconia, a powerful enemy of the Sailor Guardians. Comments about her impressions on the role of Zirconia, who is the ringmaster of Dead Moon Circus plotting to conquer the Earth and the Moon and pledging her loyalty to Nehellenia, the Queen of the Dead Moon, as well as her love for "Sailor Moon", have arrived.
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!

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 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.
