The screening event opened with a greeting from 9 cast members. The event also featured a talk panel in which the cast discussed memorable episodes from the production of "Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo" and "Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time".

What other surprises did the cast share during the talk? [ Event Cast (roles omitted) ] Sakamoto Maaya, Mitsuishi Kotono, Yamaguchi Yuriko, Seki Tomokazu, Iwanaga Tetsuya, Iwao Junko, Nagasawa Miki, Sawashiro Miyuki, Katsu Anri. [ What is “Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo”? ] Premiered on January 2021, “Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo” is an updated version of the movie “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo” made especially for IMAX theaters. Not only the entire movie was re-edited and processed with high-resolution technology, but most of the film’s color palettes, designs, and scenes were revised in order to meet IMAX quality standards. ■ Appearing for the first time in a Thrice Upon a Time related event At the time of the event (26th Saturday), the movie had surpassed the 9.5 billion box office mark with more than 6.2 million tickets sold. Held amidst this continuously ongoing hype, the screening event featured a talk panel during which the cast smiled non-stop from beginning to end. The talk was delivered under a laid-back atmosphere, conveying a sense of teamwork that was likely nourished through the long hours of hard work in the production of the films. It was the first time for Sakamoto Maaya, Seki Tomokazu, and Sawashiro Miyuki to participate in an event related to “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time”. Since it had been such a long time standing in front of a crowd, given the circumstance of the current times, Seki was first asked by the MC “Can you see the spectators' faces well?”, to which he answered “Yes I can”. He quickly added “And I also memorized their faces. I memorized.. all of your faces!” while impersonating an evil villain voice, making the audience laugh, and relieving the tension for the rest of the cast. Playing new characters who only appeared in the recent films, Sakamoto Maaya and Sawashiro Miyuki behaved more reserved among the cast who have been involved with the franchise since the TV anime. They expressed how happy they were to be able to take part in this event, also lamenting not being able to participate in an early stage event held on March 28 along with the rest of the crew, remembering how sad they felt looking at the photos from the event they missed on the cast’s LINE app chat group. ■ Audition Stories from Sawashiro Miyuki and Katsu Anri. The characters Tama Hideki, and Suzuhara Sakura, played respectively by Katsu Anri, and Sawashiro Miyuki, appeared for the first time on “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo”. Among some secret stories behind their audition, Katsu Anri first revealed that he was happy simply by the fact that he was able to take the audition. And that’s because Katsu himself had been a fan of the “Evangelion” series since high school. He recalled screaming out loud enthusiastically in public, despite being outdoors, after being told he got approved for the role. Sawashiro Miyuki made mention to the director Tsurumaki Kazuya, whose job was to scoop up Anno Hideaki’s complex vision behind each scene and summarize it to the voice cast. She was surprised by the depth of his explanations and analysis from the storyboard. The audience listened carefully to her accounts which displayed the complexity of the narrative, unique to a series enigmatic as “Evangelion”. ■Taking “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo” Secrets to the Grave Sakamoto Maaya was nervous and charmingly ended up hitting the microphone against her own mouth as she proceeded to say that during the recordings Anno Hideaki told her secrets regarding her character, Mari. But on a fragmented basis, pushing her to interpret the character in an ad-lib fashion. She also mentioned being apprehensive during interviews, worrying about which information she could let out. Mitsuishi Kotono who was sitting next to Sakamoto listened curiously as she revealed further that there are secrets that she cannot speak of without Anno’s permission. Seki Tomokazu then joked “Watch out, the journalists are on alert just waiting for you to slip up.” inviting a surge of laughter, which was quickly turned into silence by Sakamoto’s words “I can never, ever, speak about it. I’m taking it to the grave if I must”. Among the anecdotes, she also pointed out a particular direction order from Anno Hideaki, which was to keep in mind and try to emulate the comedian Kariya Chosuke’s catchphrase “Let’s move on”. Such a peculiar instruction really stood out, said Sakamoto. Mitsuishi Kotono explained why “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo” takes place 14 years after the events of the previous movie: According to Anno Hideaki, it was to match the actual age of the voice performers to the characters. However, this led to a debate among the cast about how this must actually be a joke from the chief director. In the end, nobody really could tell the real reason behind the decision. Yamaguchi Yuriko spoke about how deeply affected she was by the heaviness of the plot in the 14 years later setting. She mentioned not being able to cope with reality after the recording sessions, having to sneak into the restroom to cry. Releasing the emotions made her feel better, however, since the voice recording took place while the animation wasn’t complete yet, she had to use her imagination to supplement the visuals. So the whole process left a profound impact on her emotionally. Nagasawa Miki talked about how important her Evangelion-themed nail polish was to her voice acting. Having her nails in the same colors as the waves in the poster, as well as Ritsuko’s earrings, helped her portray the more intricate personality nuances of Maya, as it served as a reminder of what her character cared about the most. ■ Suzuhara Toji and Horaki Hikari Marriage The talk session for “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time” started with a wedding announcement between the characters Toji and Hikari, to which the audiences reacted with a round of applause. Hikari’s voice actress Iwao Junko was overjoyed by the fact that her character got to marry Toji, for whom she had feelings towards since middle school, also having a baby together called “Tsubame”. Seki Tomokazu who played Toji, mentioned during an encounter with Iwao in a different context outside of the film production, talking about Toji, and how she was ecstatic about the fact that the character had a happy ending in the movies, as opposed to the TV anime series. Afterward, portraying their characters on stage, Toji (Seki) proceeds to make eye contact with Hikari (Iwao) claiming "We are so happy, aren’t we?”. They're interrupted then by Misato (Mitsuishi), “Oh, that's so annoying”, stirring up the audience. Iwanaga Tetsuya explained that his character, Kensuke's role in the movie is to connect other characters. It was thanks to his support that Shinji was able to stand up against Gendou. He was also responsible for relaying information to Misato about Ryoji and Shinji, acting as a bridge between the parties. Iwanaga Tetsuya also opened up about the strong sense of obligation he felt towards helping the character Asuka, who has struggled with loneliness all along. In his performance, Iwanaga incorporated his personal intent of wanting to rescue her. Sakamoto Maaya also spoke about the moments she shared with Miyamura Yuko during the voice recording sessions. So far Sakamoto had been by herself during the movies recording sessions, so it was the first time in a while she had the opportunity to collaborate with another cast member. She was fine by herself at first, since her character Mari, didn’t have a huge impact on the plot during her initial appearances. However, in the final installment, there’s a significant amount of dialogue that connects to the core of the plot. And through working together with Miyamura, Sakamoto was able to build immeasurable chemistry between Mari and the “Asuka” developed through many years by Miyamura. Sawashiro addressed her character in relation to the bond with her brother. She reported that it had been initially planned for Sakura to also speak in the same Kansai dialect as her brother Toji. Yet, that did not pan out. She also disclosed that the message written in the photo that appears in the film was handwritten by Seki himself. Mitsuishi and Yamaguchi discussed about their characters Misato and Ritsuko long partnership. Ritsuko, voiced by Yamaguchi, is a character who has lived an unhappy and troubled life following the same plot as in the TV anime. The only person to which she is able to open up to, and contend with is Misato, as their contrasting personalities complement each other. Yamaguchi elaborated also on the fact that the characters Ritsuko and Misato are deeply intertwined. The actresses expressed how fortunate they were to work together throughout the series, and how sad they were that the film series has reached its completion. They both exchanged thank you cheers on the stage. At the end of the talk, a written message from Ogata Megumi, who voiced Ikari Shinji, was read out loud. In the message were written words of appreciation and gratitude towards the fans who have come all the way to the venue to show their love towards the “Evangelion” franchise. (C)Khara
September has arrived, and the autumn vacation season is approaching. However, due to the restrictions on going out due to COVID-19, it is still difficult to travel and go sightseeing. Here at Anime! Anime!, we would like to introduce some "local-featured anime" that you can feel like traveling being at home. We have picked up five new anime that will be aired in the fall of 2021 and are set in local areas of Japan, such as Nagoya and Okinawa. ■"PuraOre! Pride of Orange" (Nikko, Tochigi) "PuraOre! Pride of Orange" is an animated media mix project by CyberAgent and DMM GAMES. For the first time in anime history, the theme is "women's ice hockey". It is a coming-of-age story set in Nikko, Tochigi, about Mizusawa Manaka and her childhood friends who come to experience the local ice hockey team, the Dream Monkeys, and are awakened to the charm of ice hockey, eventually becoming players in the game. What is the local charm of "PuraOre! Pride of Orange"? The "local" charm of this anime is that it is supervised by Japan's first professional ice hockey team, the "H.C. Tochigi Nikko Ice Bucks," whose home town is Nikko in Tochigi. This makes it a "local anime" that pursues a realistic representation of ice hockey and also works together with the team to promote the attractions of Tochigi, including Nikko and Kinugawa. ■"Shikizakura" (Nagoya and Toyota, Aichi) "Shikizakura" is an original anime from the Tokai area, created by the "Nagoya Anime Project", which transmits anime from Nagoya. The main character, Miwa Sho, a high school student, is suddenly caught up in a battle between a man-eating "Oni" from another world and a team of mysterious power suits. And before he knows it, he too is wearing a power suit to fight the "Oni". This is an adventure drama about Sho and his friends as they fight to become heroes. What is the "local" charm of "Shikizakura"? The Obara district in Toyota, Aichi, where the story takes place, is famous for the "Shikizakura" cherry blossoms that bloom in spring and summer, which is also the title of the story. In addition, many other places in Aichi appear in the anime. Another feature of the anime is that many of the staff and artists are from the Tokai area, including Mashiro Miho (from Toyota), who plays the heroine Myojin Manaka, and Asaka (from Nagoya), who sings the theme song.

Season 1 of the TV anime was broadcast in April 2021, and this will be Season 2. Set in Tajimi in the southeastern part of Gifu, which is one of the production areas of Minoyaki, a traditional craft, this is a coming-of-age story about four high school girls who become absorbed in the charm of ceramics. What is the "local" charm of "Let's Make a Mug Too: Second Stove" This work is characterized by the fact that the 30-minute film is divided into two parts: the first 15 minutes is the regular "anime part" and the second 15 minutes is the "live-action part." In the second half of the "live-action part," Tanaka Minami and the other four voice actors appear on stage to try their hand at pottery making and show the audience around the stage that was used in the anime, which is a unique "local" charm of this work. It will introduce the charm of Tajimi and pottery through both anime and live action. ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’ (Naha, Okinawa) ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’ is an original short anime set in Naha, Okinawa, which consists of 90-second episodes.

What is the "local" charm of ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’? This work is a very short anime of 90 seconds per episode, so the charm of Okinawa is condensed into it. It takes place in a hotel in Okinawa, so you can feel like a little traveler. There are also fantastic elements such as the appearance of a huge "banyan tree" that breaks through the ceiling of the hotel. Even in a short time, you can enjoy the atmosphere of Okinawa. The Vampire Dies in No Time (Yokohama, Kanagawa) "The Vampire Dies in No Time" is based on a gag manga by Bonnoki Itaru, serialized in "Weekly Shonen Champion." The story is set in Shin-Yokohama, Kanagawa, and depicts the hyping gags of Dralc, a vampire who was feared to be invincible but was actually a "total loser" vampire, Ronald, a vampire hunter who is a hard worker and others. What is the "local" charm of "The Vampire Dies in No Time"? Shin-Yokohama, the setting of this work, is the hometown of the original author, Bonnoki Itaru, and many places that can be considered to be in the Shin-Yokohama area appear in the story. The degree to which the story is recreated will make locals want to say, "This place must be that!", without thinking. Also, since vampires appear in this work, the beautiful night view of Yokohama is another charm. You can enjoy the mysterious world of Shin-Yokohama, where the boundary between reality and gag is blurred. These are the five works introduced above.

Then, speaking about "What titles you can watch?" we will introduce "Detective Conan", "Gintama", "Pretty Cure" series, "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba", and "Teekyu"♪ ■ "Detective Conan" One of the masterpieces of long-running anime! Perfect for long vacations! "Detective Conan" is based on the same-name manga by Aoyama Gosho serialized in "Weekly Shonen Sunday". Kudo Shinichi, a high school student and a detective whose body has been become smaller by a mysterious organization, becomes Edogawa Conan, an elementary school boy who solves mystery cases and chases a mysterious organization. You can watch "Detective Conan" from episode 1 to 274 "The Truth About the Haunted House (Part 1)"! Episode 274, "The Truth About the Haunted House (Part 1)," is an episode from Season 7 that was aired in 2002. (Recorded DVD: PART10 Vol.6). When Ran catches a cold and goes to the hospital, she meets an old man who has a ghost in his apartment. Then, the old man who calls himself Hoichi the Earless invites her to his apartment asking, "Would you like to see the ghost?" Conan and Kogoro, who are interested in ghost stories, decide to follow the old man's to his apartment with Ran who dislikes it. What is the true identity of the ghost? ■ "Gintama" The anime and the original manga have finished, so why not take this opportunity to review it slowly? "Gintama" is based on the same-name manga by Sorachi Hideaki serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump". The final part of the 15-year anime series, the movie version "Gintama THE FINAL," was released in January 2021. The story is set in Edo at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, which has been invaded by aliens. It is a slapstick and sometimes serious comedy centered on the members of "Yorozuya" Sakata Gintoki, Shimura Shinpachi, and Kagura. "Gintama" goes from episodes 1 to 274, "The big guy in the nostrils has big creativity", "The new squadron thing seems to be like this at first, but it will be separated by the final episode You can watch until "I don't want to"! Episode 274: "Guys With Big Nostrils Also Has a Big Imagination"/"You Never Accept a New Sentai Series at the Start, But By the Final Episode, You Don't Want It to End", from "Gintama': Enchousen" (Season 3) was broadcast in 2015. There are two stories in episode one, one is a story about Gin and his friends thinking about a catch phrase for a promotional poster to promote "Yorozuya", and another one is about making a "local character" by improving the image of Kabuki Town to Otae-san. ■ "Pretty Cure" which generation are you? Let's watch the series not in real-time! The "Pretty Cure" series is a long-run series that depicts girls transforming and fighting, starting from "Futari wa Pretty Cure" broadcast in 2004. In the first series, ordinary junior high school students Misumi Nagisa and Yukishiro Honoka become "legendary warriors" Pretty Cure and confront the evil force, Dotsk Zone, who is trying to dye the world in darkness. Since then, new works have been released every year. You can watch the "Pretty Cure" series from episode 1 of season 1 "Futari wa Pretty Cure" to episode 32 of season 6 "Fresh Pretty Cure!"(274 episodes in total) "Farewell! Tarte and Chiffon!!" Episode 32 "Farewell! Tarte and Chiffon!!" of "Fresh Pretty Cure!" was broadcast in 2009 (series total: 274 episodes). Tart and Chiffon came to this world in search of the "legendary warriors" Pretty Cure, but since their task was canceled, they will return to their hometown. However, since they are in love and can't say goodbye, they decided to follow along to the fairyland, the Kingdom of Sweets. The activities of Pretty Cure and others that occur in that country are shown. ■ Season 2 of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" is coming! Let's rewatch the series before it starts! "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" is based on the manga by Gotouge Koyoharu serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump". The cumulative circulation of the series has exceeded 150 million. Set in Japan during the Taisho era. A boy named Kamado Tanjirou, whose family was killed by a demon, joins the Demon Slayer Corps to return his sister, Nezuko, who becomes a demon, to a human again. You can watch season 1 of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" from episode 1 to 26 + "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train" (screening time: 117 minutes) about 9 times! The TV anime was broadcast in 2019, and the popularity of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" was ignited, and the movie "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train" released the following year becoming a breakthrough that earned 40 billion yen at the box office. It caused a social phenomenon, such as recording the number one box office revenue in Japanese movies. Also this year, in 2021, season 2 of the TV anime "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Entertainment District Arc" will be broadcast, and this Obon is a great opportunity to review the original series. If you haven't seen it yet, take this opportunity to watch it 2, 3 or 9 times. ■ Enjoy "Teekyu" as many times as you like! Watch it so many times that you will fly to the world of the work! "Teekyu" is based on the manga written by Roots and illustrated by Piyo serialized in "Comic Earth Star". It is a "super-high tension gag comedy" about four unusual girls attending Kameido High School to play or not play tennis. "Teekyu" is a short anime of about 2 minutes per episode and a total of 108 episodes from season 1 to season 9 were broadcast... If you remove the OP / ED (about 1 minute 30 seconds), you can watch 3840 episodes in 4 days 36 times! "Teekyu" is known as "a chaotic super-high-speed gag anime that you can't follow because it's too fast", but if you watch it 36 times in total all 9 seasons, you may understand what they are saying Why don't you join the Kameido High School Tennis Club this summer and spend your youth playing tennis with your seniors? (Spin-off works are excluded this time) =================================== As mentioned above, we calculated the number of titles that you can watch all four days of the Obon holiday, from long-run series to super short anime. The long-term series such as "Conan" and "Pretty Cure" have the impression that they are still going on, but 2 season's titles like "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" can be rewatched a few times. This Obon holiday, an anime marathon that is sleepless for 4 days... Even if you don't take it that way, take on the challenge of watching the anime you've always wanted to see (be careful about your physical condition) and make it a memorable summer. How about watching it?
