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.
