"Fums" is an application that allows companies and individuals such as anime and manga artists, game makers, voice actors, production companies, and character designers to create an official community with a monthly membership fee. Each fan can join multiple communities with a single app.
"Fums service has three features."
By creating a community for each work or individual, a bond is created between a work and its fans, and by being able to see a previously unknown fan base, it becomes easier to understand what is expected of them, and by creating a stable revenue stream in the form of monthly membership fees, it becomes possible to create new events and goods.
A single "Fams" can be used to join various communities, and since crowdfunding and QR code payment functions will be implemented within the app, there will be no need to switch services for each event.
By making it a platform, the initial cost of opening and joining a fan club can be kept at zero yen, which makes it possible to create a "limited time" community and conduct pilot operations, which is a "drastically lowered bar".
"Fams" is set to be released on February 17, 2021, and is currently accepting applications from companies and individuals to register as communities.
Communities can be created in the following genres: anime/manga/manga magazine/manga artist/light novel/light novel writer/game/voice actor/voice acting agency/ 2.5D actor/anime song singers/production company/creator [character designer or director etc.].

[Narration, Hazama Michio]
TAAF is a very memorable event that I have been involved in since the predecessor "Tokyo International Anime Fair" era. I am very honored to receive the award in the Anime Achievement category and to be in charge of narration for the PV. I challenged myself while remembering those days when I was producing the voice actor stage at the Tokyo International Anime Fair.
The temporal narration (by director Yoda) that was included in the video sent to me was very good, so I did my best to not lose.
Taking advantage of the idea that came out of the chat with Yoda-san, I made a slightly improved version with ad-lib. I hope that you will watch and hear this PV in various places.
[PV Director Yoda Nobutaka]
It's been a tough year, but TAAF is fine and going further! The merit department is too legendary! I heard that Hasama-san will do narration this year! I was quite nervous when I started recording, but Hasama-san is fun to work with, and it was really interesting recording sessions.
While listening to Hasama-san's voice, I remembered many masterpieces and heroes, but at that point, it was a great time to release a messed up gag. I forgot that it was work, and put tension aside.

Director Ashino Yoshiharu
"Cross Ange" is not a heartwarming anime that depicts everyday life, but if you like a bold and unpredictable story, I definitely recommend you to watch it.
I think you can enjoy the development of chaos similar to Western movies and doramas.
Creative Producer Fukuda Mitsuo
"Cross Ange" is a work I like a lot, and I still look back on it.
I'm the type of person who won't watch a scene if I don't like it, so that means there aren't any..
It was a work that challenged me in many ways, and above all, I think I was able to leave an impact on viewers.
Mizuki Nana as Ange
That amazing work will be released in BD BOX! !!
Six years later, the words and deeds of the wild hero Ange, who has lost everything and crawls up from the bottom of the dong, are still strongly burning into my heart.
Their energy to live in the present with all their might will blow away the depression of novel coronavirus times!!

"Mr. Osomatsu", the ongoing TV anime , held an online Christmas live titled, "Iyami and Totoko's Merry Christ'Matsu'! ~Shey naru Yoru~(Holy Night)" on its official YouTube channel on December 24, 2020.
Since the broadcast was held on the Christmas Eve, several voice of the fans waiting for the event had been posted on Twitter. When the live stream started with a title call, the spokesmen Suzumura Kenichi and Endou Aya with Santa outfits appeared on the stage, where the decoration is made specially for Christmas night. The event started with Suzumura Kenichi saying, "although it is little difficult to see each other at the actual event, but I hope we can have a wonderful Christmas Eve together".
This live stream asked the fans "how they spend their Christmas Eve night" via letters in advance, and also welcomed the Twitter posts during the live stream. Many comments from the fans have been sent since the original goods will be given to the fans whose letters or posts were read during the event. Fukuyama Jun (playing Ichimatsu) and Kamiya Hiroshi (playing Choromatsu) with reindeer outfits appeared on the stage to show the original goods. Fukuyama passionately introduced himself. "I am Fuku-Reindeer-Yama Jun!!", while Kamiya made a fighting pose and said, "I am the Reindeer Man!" in front of camera. Twitter was put in the whirl of excitement since it is very rare to see them in reindeer outfits.
Moreover, the rest of the casts of 6 siblings later appeared on the stage. Sakurai Takahiro (Osomatsu), Nakamura Yuuichi (Karamatsu), and Ono Daisuke (Juushimatsu) made their appearance through phone calls, and Irino Miyu delivered his message via a letter. The common topic among the casts were "how everyone was spending their Christmas Eves" and "the honest comments after completing the first half of Season 3". Regardless of the expectation to hear the honest negative comments, the casts agreed that they "do not have much negative feeling toward Season 3", and the casts are also surprised at each other for not having any complaints.
In addition message cards from the story editor Matsubara Shuu and the director Fujita Youichi arrived at the event. Matsubara expressed his affection towards Endou saying, " I love Totoko. I love Endou-san", and director Fujita said, "after finishing 21 consecutive work days with one-day off twice, I do not feel well. I need HELP!" showing us how he's keeping being busy.
The last section was review quiz. Four difficult questions related to each cast was shown on the screen. As a response to the question, "On episode 4-'Ichimatsu Radio', what was the family name of the fake director, who works for a fake show of Ichimatsu, titled 'Deep Night Hour'?", Kamiya commented, "it is little embarrassing if I get this wrong", and got the right answer, "Director Kanda!". The casts continued to worked together to answer difficult questions, including "On episode 7-'Dociking', what kind of a tree is displayed in the cockpit on the spacecraft, where Choromatsu is working as a pilot?".
At the closing, all 4 casts seemed to enjoy the event. Kamiya commented, "I realized again how fun Mr. Osomatsu is!", while Endou sadly commented, "It is very sad to end this event, since I did not expect to participate in such an entertaining party as an adult". The live stream will be archived until 11:59 p.m. on December 31 on the official "Mr. Osomatsu" YouTube channel.
