July 24th is Telework Day. Telework Day was established in 2017, to ease congestion during the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics and to promote remote work nationwide. The date was set for July 24 since the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony was originally planned for July 24th, 2020. Teleworking has spread due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some might find it harder to communicate remotely or to make a distinction between work and private life. Working from home might not be easy for everyone. So, Anime! Anime! took a reader survey titled “Which character seems to be good at “working remotely?”. We got answers from 105 readers from July 7th to 14th. For gender ratio, there were more answers from female readers since female readers account for 77%, while male readers account for 25%. For the age ratio, we received answers mostly from young readers, the age group under 19 accounts for 50%, and 20’s accounts for 35%. ■ Hard-working Characters Ranked High! 1st Place First place goes to Doppo Kunikida from ‘Bungo Stray Dogs’ with a support rate of 8%. Doppo Kunikida belongs to the superpower association “Buso Tanteisha”. He is the type of person who makes detailed schedules, “He is a perfectionist and a workaholic, so he is capable of working hard remotely as well! ” and “He is always honest, so he will probably volunteer to host the remote meetings. ” His straightforward personality was appreciated and got first place. 2nd Place Second place goes to Kento Nanami from “JUJUTSU KAISEN” . The support rate was 6%. Kento Nanami is a shaman who used to be an office worker. “He will work hard and try to finish his job on time even at home.” and “His experience as an office worker should be useful, but how does a shaman work remotely…?” His honest personality again was the reason for voting. “The movie JUJUTSU KAISEN 0” will be released in December this year. The character from popular anime was ranked high. 3rd Place Third place goes to Hirotaka Nifuji from “Love Is Hard for Otaku”, coming in a close third. Hirotaka Nifuji is an office worker who loves playing games. We got comments from readers, “It’s easy or rather better for him to work remotely, but he will probably play games secretly.” Another character, Tao Kabakura, from “Love is Hard for Otaku” also ranked in 4th place. ■ Here are some other comments!! A comment on Doppo Kannonzaka from “Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle”, “He is an office worker who is too negative usually, but working remotely might work for him!” Other readers commented on Kirito from “Sword Art Online”, “I can imagine him working hard from home, too focused and forgetting to eat”, and “He was active in the virtual reality world, so working remotely should be a piece of cake for him. ” Comment on Hozuki from “Hozuki's Coolheadedness”: “I think that aid will be so efficient on a screen as well.” Comment on Miss Kobayashi from “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid”: “She is good at her job in the office, so she should be capable of working remotely as well. Tohru will take care of her and Kanna’s cuteness will make her relaxed and more productive.” The survey result shows that hard-working and reliable characters are ranked high. Many characters who have experiences in office work ranked high as well. ■ Top 5 rankings “Which character seems good at working remotely?” 1st Doppo Kunikida from “Bungo Stray Dogs” 2nd Kento Nanami from “JUJUTSU KAISEN” 3rd Hirotaka Nifuji from “Love Is Hard for Otaku” 4th Toru Amuro from “Detective Conan” 4th Taro Kabakura from “Love Is Hard for Otaku” 4th Miss Kobayashi from “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid” 4th Choe Guseong from “PSYCHO-PASS” 4th Ai Haibara from “Detective Conan” 4th Mary Sera from “Detective Conan” (Answer period : July 7th - 14th 2021) ■ Top 10 rankings “Which character seems good at working remotely?” 1st Doppo Kunikida from “Bungo Stray Dogs” 2nd Kento Nanami from “JUJUTSU KAISEN” 3rd Hirotaka Nifuji from “Love Is Hard for Otaku” 4th Toru Amuro from “Detective Conan” 4th Taro Kabakura from “Love Is Hard for Otaku” 4th Miss Kobayashi from “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid” 4th Choe Guseong from “PSYCHO-PASS” 4th Ai Haibara from “Detective Conan” 4th Mary Sera from “Detective Conan” 10th Izaya Orihara from “DURARARA!!” 10th Doppo Kannonzaka from “Hypnosis Mic：Division Rap Battle” 10th Nobuchika Ginoza from “PSYCHO-PASS” 10th Gintoki Sakata from “Gintama” 10th Akane Tsunemori from “PSYCHO-PASS” 10th Toshiro Hijikata from “Gintama” 10th Gentaro Yumeno from “Hypnosis Mic：Division Rap Battle” 10th Kankichi Ryotsu from “KochiKame: Tokyo Beat Cops” (Answer period : July 7th - 14th 2021)
July 22 is "Umi no Hi" (Marine Day). Marine Day is a national holiday set in 1996. When it was first established, it was July 20 but since 2003, it was moved to the third Monday in July. In 2021, due to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic, the holiday has been moved to July 22, the day before the opening ceremony. Umi is a familiar character name in anime. There are many characters with "Umi/海" in their name, regardless of their gender. So, who's the most popular among them? We at Anime!Anime! conducted the annual survey asking, "Who's the First Character that Comes to Mind with 'Umi/海' in Their Name?" There were 167 votes during the survey period from July 2 to July 9. The gender ratio was 40% male to 60% female with a bit more female voters, and the age range was on the younger side with 45% under 20 and 30% in their 20s. ■"Love Live!" Sonoda Umi tops the list for the fourth year in a row! 1st Place Sonoda Umi tops the list with roughly 22%, keeping her at the top for four consecutive years. "Since she is responsible and trusted by everyone, her name is called a lot and left a strong impression on me. It's a wonderful name that fits her perfectly, as pure and clear as the sea. I also love that her name is not just '海' but '海未'," and "The first character that comes to mind when I hear 'Umi' is Umi-chan. Her airheadedness that sometimes peaks through is so cute," are comments that show how her diligence and the gap between her airheadedness fascinates her fans. 2nd Place Coming in 2nd is Shinkai KanataSouta (深海奏汰) from "Ensemble Stars!" with roughly 7% of the votes, moving him up from last year's 6th place. Shinkai KanataSouta, the idol who loves the ocean and the head of the Marine Biology Club was popular for his slightly unusual personality and received votes such as "I love how he loves the water and tries to jump into the ocean whenever he sees it," and "I have an impression that he's always floating in the water and it's so cute." He is deeply related to the ocean since his family business is an aquarium and his theme color is blue. 3rd Place Umibouzu from "Gintama" takes 3rd place with roughly 6% of the votes, moving him up from last year's 10th place. Umiboouzu is the father of the heroine of the series, Kagura. He received votes such as "He forever cherishes his wife, Kouka, and takes care of his children, Kagura-chan and Kamui-kun. I'm fascinated by his fatherly figure." "Gintama: The Final" being released this year may have helped boost his ranking. ■Here are some comments for other characters! For Kaidou Shun (海藤瞬) from "The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.", "It's funny that he has '海' in his surname but can't swim at all." For Ahagon Umiko from "NEW GAME!", "How she hates being called 'Ahagon' and tries to force people to call her 'Umiko' left a strong impression on me." There were also votes for the latest anime from 2021. For Misakino Kukuru (海咲野くくる) from "The Aquatope on White Sand", "The director deputy of an aquarium in Okinawa. Her appearances like her blue hair remind me of the ocean." For Natsuumi Manatsu from "Tropical-Rouge! Pretty Cure", "Manatsu-chan loves the ocean! I hope she continues to share her energy with us." While regular characters were popular in the 2021 survey, some characters from the latest titles like "Tropical-Rouge! Pretty Cure" and "Jujutsu Kaisen" also made the list. ■Top 20 "Who's the First Character that Comes to Mind with 'Umi/海' in Their Name?" 1. Sonoda Umi "Love Live!" 2.

July 20 is "T-shirt day". It comes from T being the 20th alphabet and that July 20 used to be the day of the sea. T-shirts, perfect for everyday wear, are a familiar item for characters from anime and games. Some wear weird T-shirts, some have episodes related to T-shirts, and some even have T-shirts as their merchandise.

The new project "Di Gi Charat of Reiwa" from "Di Gi Charat", which was broadcast in 1999, has been announced. It is already attracting attention among old fans. The restart of popular anime is always a pleasure for fans. Among Anime!Anime! readers, there are probably many people who want to see some revived titles in the Reiwa period. Therefore, we conducted a reader survey entitled "Which anime would you like to come back in the Reiwa period?" We received responses from 167 people during the survey period from June 30 to July 7. The male-female ratio is about 40% for males and about 60% for females. About 45% of the age group were teens, and about 25% were in their 20s. In addition, the works that were broadcast and produced after Reiwa (after May 1, 2019), the series works that the sequel was broadcast and OVA produced after the start of the Reiwa period, and the works that have already been remade and revived were not applicable. ■ Many masterpieces from manga to original titles have been ranked in! In this survey, votes were gathered for a wide range of titles, but the one that stood out was the title of the original manga. For "Ouran High School Host Club", "I love the original, so I want to see the anime adaptation till the end. The cast from the last release is still very active, so it is possible to gather them all in!" About "Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo", "I was laughing so hard, my stomach hurts. The anime ended in the middle, so I want to see it properly until the end." Readers commented for "Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch", "I think it's a good opportunity because the sequel will be serialized", and "Saturday 8 A.M. frame title. It seems to be compatible with media development as it is a song animation. The completely new anime for the previous project "Tokyo Mew Mew" has also been announced, so I want to check it out!" For "The Kindaichi Case Files", "'37 Year Old' is currently being serialized , but the boy series has been completed. Late night anime may be suitable because there are many horrific things." Since manga is often being animated while it is still publishing, some people commented, "I want to enjoy anime until the end of the work." Of course, the anime original works are also popular. For "Mobile Suit Gundam", "'THE ORIGIN' has been animated in 'Mobile Suit Gundam', but I think it's about time for a full remake of 'First Gundam'." About "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann", "I realized again what a masterpiece it was by looking at the production materials at the 'Hiroyuki Imaishi's World' exhibition. Next year is the 15th anniversary!

I want you to see a sequel." For the "Another" based on the novel, has "Since there are sequels 'Another Episode S' and 'Another 2001' are on sale."

“SAY YOU TO YOASOBI Tuesday 【Shimono Hiro x Uchida Maaya】#14”, the TV program featuring Shimono Hiro and Uchida Maaya on “Anime LIVE Channel” of the new futuristic “ABEMA”, was broadcast on July 20, 2021. Welcome back ceremony unique to “YOASOBI” was held, and Shimono commented, “I’m back!” and thanks his fans and Uchida, who waited for him. This program was the first episode after Shimono was back. In the opening, the hero show-like title “Welcome Back! Shimotraman” was shown. With the starting line, “I don’t like bad people! I love milk and fried chicken. All humanity should wear glasses! Shimotraman is now back!”, Shimono dressed up as “Shimotraman” appeared in front of the screen and invoked laughter from Uchida and audience. Shimono seemed to suffer from this reckless show, which he wore a red and white hat like an elementary school student and moving while making a flying posture on the meeting desk. Uchida looked at the show and reacted, “What are you doing?”, “What is Shimotraman?”, “Hurry up, come here lol”, while bursting into laghter. After completing “YOASOBI”-like ceremony, Shimono greeted to the fans, “I’m back!” and thanks Uchida and his fans, who waited for his return. During the opening talk, Shimono continued, “I feel like I worked too hard. I reorganized my feeling and cleaned my room at the same time. I cooked sometime, and cooked something that I haven't made for a while, like oyakodon (egg, chicken, vegetable in a bowl filled with rice)”. He seemed to enjoy the recuperation period. The MCs challenged “Buzz x2 Burger Challenge”. This program was about the MCs making an original burger that makes a buzz on SNS on July 20, the burger’s day. They competed on how appealing their burger is, through the voting from the audience. The judges decide the burger not only on how well-looking it is, but also how luxurious can they place it on the plates. They first dressed as the burger shop employees to make them feel real. They started making burgers after “welcoming” the audience to their shop. The staff has ready with not only the popular ingredients, like buns, patties, lettuce, and tomato, but they also ready the abnormal choices, including Imagawa cake, fried Shiitake, and banana. They made their burgers, while eating warm Imagawa cake by saying “We should eat this while it’s hot”. Uchida chose lettuce, pineapple, tomato, cheese, and bacon without hesitation to make a nice burger, and placed all decoration toppings that was available for her. She was ready with a dish filled with food. In contrast, Shimono carefully made his burger with his favourite lettuce, onion and pickles, and neatly adjusting the taste. Shimono’s burger looked not too unique, but he placed half-cut Imagawa cake on the top. His final work was “Shimotraman Burger”, which used Imagawa cake as the horn of an Ultraman. Uchida took pictures and edited with special angles and effects, and her ability to make a “Buzz” was evident. As the result, 70% of the audience voted for Uchida and 30% for Shimono on “which burger can make more buzz on SNS?”, and Uchida proudly commented, “this is the photograph of whom mastered to look appealing on the SNS”. Shimono gave up on competing Uchida after looking at her work. He praised her, “Wow, you are different and unique!”, and “I learned a lot from you” and the winner went to Uchida, who used her camera completely. “SAY YOU TO YOASOBI Tuesday 【Shimono Hiro x Uchida Maaya】#14” is currently available exclusively on “ABEMA PREMIUM” in “ABEMA Video”. On “ABEMA PREMIUM”, “SAY YOU TO YOASOBI Premium【Shimono Hiro x Uchida Maaya】#14” with special movie is also available, so check it out if you are interested. © Abema TV,Inc
