"Zero Kara Aganau Isekai Seikatsu" (Redeeming from Zero in Another World) The new story "New Chapter 2" will be added to the RPG "Re: Life in a Different World from Zero Lost in Memories" (hereinafter referred to as "Re:zero") for smartphones. The official name is "Zerokara Aganau Isekai Seikatsu" (Redeeming from Zero in Another World) To redeem is to "Connect Sins." This episode is the original story supervised by the original author, Nagatsuki Tappei, which depicts Subaru 20 years later, but the only thing that drifts from the episode is the ominous and sad air. What exactly is drawn in this episode...? This episode will be added on "Re:zero" from July 15. Prior the release, I would like to summarize what is currently known and the numerous "mysteries" that can be understood through the information gaps. ▲ "New Chapter 2" [Zerokara Aganaui Sekai Seikatsu] New information from the teaser movie has arrived! "Re:zero" is content that you can enjoy as a story from the TV anime, the original developments that branch depending on the progress of the game, and a "new chapter" that is a completely original scenario for this work. All of it was supervised by the original author, Nagatsuki Tappei, and in "New Chapter 1", the actions of Subaru and Otto, who were imprisoned for innocent charges, were depicted. The topic "New Chapter 2" is a story created for this work about Subaru 20 years later. The already released illustrations convey a sad atmosphere. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417040.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417041.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /> Both of the two newly released screenshots that I will show you are the story selection screens, so you can see the beginning of the story and the scenario composition to some extent. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417042.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1138' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417043.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1138' /> The summary of the story is, "Revenge on Betelgeuse who killed Rem. Subaru, who himself sealed 'Return to Death', finally gets the opportunity 20 years later." In other words, this episode is the story of "If" in which Rem was killed by Betelgeuse. Certainly, there are stories' turns in which Rem loses her life even in the anime, so it can be taken as a continuation of the story. From the other screenshot, you can see that the scenario released this time is 8 episodes and the ending is one. Because it is compact, you may be able to enjoy a scenario with a sense of speed. The mysterious "New Chapter 2"! A summary of the known information Five characters have been confirmed to appear in this episode. Below, I will introduce the character and the published lines. First of all, the main character, Natsuki Subaru. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417044.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417045.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /> Subaru's lines have already been released, "Stop. This pain is my fault. I'm not going to put it on anyone", and in the end of the Teaser PV, "Please, try not to be like me......……" It exudes a sense of loss for losing Rem and the misery of the fate of losing Rem. The rough appearance can be seen from his face, with a pitiful hairstyle, wrinkles in the eyebrows, and stubbles. After all, what is worrisome of Subaru-20-years-later is his clothes. As many fans have already pointed out, this Subaru looks just like Aldebaran (Al), the knight of Priscilla. And it's not just about clothes. The wound on his right arm and his left arm, which seems to be his prosthetic hand, match those of Aldebaran, increasing the concentration of the "Subaru-Al theory". However, even if that were the case, it is a mystery why "Subaru-Al" could exist in the past, why 2 "Subarus" could exist in the same time axis, and why they joined the Priscilla camp. Will the mystery be revealed in this episode? Please check out this point as well. Next, let's take a look at Beatrice. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417046.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417047.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417048.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /> Beatrice, also introduced in the Teaser PV, says, "……Are you asking Betty to die with you?", and the slamming line in the screenshot, "If you understand, you'd better clear off" is impressive. The question is, why was Beatrice chosen for such a "difficult purpose" to be vigilant? Does she have no other accomplices? And what happened to her coming out of the forbidden library? The mysteries are endless. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417049.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417050.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /><image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417051.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /> Felix Argyle, the knight of Kursh has changed a lot, to the point he seems to be a completely different person. He is not dressed as a woman, and he often offenses Subaru, saying, "「……You're really stupid.", "Hey, could you answer?", "Don't worry. That's my job right now." Also, basing on the lines, "Okay, Subaru-kun. You're lucky as all you have to do is pretend to be the main character of the tragedy", Felix himself seems to have had some painful memories. It should be noted that Felix was dressed as a woman to prove of his loyalty to Kursh, but it is possible that he was dressed as a man from the beginning because it is the world of "if" that he stopped doing that, but since he wears accessories that look like hair ornaments when he was dressed as a woman, it seems a bad sign. It should be noted that Felix was dressed as a woman to prove of his loyalty to Kursh, but it is possible that he was dressed as a man from the beginning because it is the world of ……?"if" that he stopped doing that, but since he wears accessories that look like hair ornaments when he was dressed as a woman, it seems a bad sign. <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417052.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='360' /> It is also interesting that Elsa Granhiert "Bowel Hunter" has joined the party. From the lines, "I'm not going to give my pleasure to open your stomach to others", and "I wonder if it was a good match" shown on the PV, at least for now, she seems to be someone to trust. But why did she want to fight together? <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417053.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='1137' /> Petelgeuse, who seems to be the last boss of this episode, has been released in a screenshot in a state of being in "another vessel" for some reason. Moreover, in the Teaser PV, there is also a line "You killed!", and it is unknown what happened between Subaru and Petelgeuse. By the way, Matsuoka Yoshitsugu voiced him in the PV, so it seems that the original Petelgeuse will appear. In addition, in the teaser PV, Reinhardt's, "Subaru......",……！ Rom's, "......It's been a long time",「…… Mimi Pearlbaton's, "Don!",…………」 Rem's, "I, kite. Da, su ki......", I wish I could take off Subaru's pain." lines have been revealed It seems that the characters around that will also have a turn, so look forward to it. The special number to commemorate the release of "New Chapter 2" has been decided. Although the introduction part of the story has been clarified, there are still many mysteries such as the situation of surrounding characters and the whereabouts of the "Subaru-Al" theory. Personally, the most worrisome is the mystery about Elsa. Did you all notice? This episode is a story 20 years later. In other words......……、 <image src='https://animeanime.jp/imgs/zoom/417054.jpg' class='inline-article-image' width='640' height='853' /> Elsa in her 40s! Even after 20 years, this beauty and proportions are the biggest mystery of "Re:zero". However, on July 12, just before the episode was delivered, the special number of "Re:zero" will delivered from 08:00 P.M. to commemorate the release of "New Chapter 2". With Kobayashi Yusuke, who plays Natsuki Subaru, the latest information on "New Chapter 2" will be released, so please look forward to it!

TV anime "My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! X" will begin airing in the "Super Animeism" slot on MBS/TBS's 28 nationwide networks in July 2021. Geoffrey Stuart, voiced by Koyasu Takehito Q1 Please tell us your impression on the work. The main lead is a villainess? Isn't that great! Q2 Please tell us your impression on your characters as well as your enthusiasm. I am grateful for this role and I will try my best in performing my role. Please do look forward to it. Susanna Randall, voiced by Uesaka Sumire Q1 Please tell us your impression on the work. I am glad to be able to participate in this work as I had watched the anime! Due to the kindness of Katarina, who is bad at lying, the surrounding have become better as if the world is being surrounded by happiness. It makes me excited that I'm able to join the world of "HameFura". Q2 Please tell us your impression on your characters as well as your enthusiasm. My first impression of Susanna was an elegant and sexy "Older sister". She is beautiful, has a good sense of humor, and is good at magic.... it makes me wonder what kind of tough life has she experienced! But after acting her, I found out she has a firm character. She also has various secrets, so do look forward to the story! Ian Stuart, voiced by Shirai Yuusuke Q1 Please tell us your impression on the work. The struggles of Katarina trying to break free from the death flags of the villainess are quite interesting, right!! Do look forward to season 2 to see how she continues to evade all the death flags along with the game development ( ´∀`) Q2 Please tell us your impression on your characters as well as your enthusiasm. As Ian is not a serious character that rarely shows his emotion, I voiced him while keeping that in mind! However when it comes to express his feelings, I was very conscious of expressing them in a way Ian would.( ´∀`) Due to his clumsiness, I believe that he is a lovely character!! Selena Burke, voiced by Ogura Yui Q1 Please tell us your impression on the work. I believe that the allure of this work is the world setting surrounding the unique characters with a brand new setting despite being a reincarnation type of story. I believe every girls dreamed is to become being a rich lady after being reincarnated. Ah, but I don't like the death flag (haha). Q2 Please tell us your impression on your characters as well as your enthusiasm. Selena Burke is a sensitive and kind girl. Due to her personality, the problem from her complexity will involve her surroundings. To be honest, I also have an annoying personality. As I am voicing her, I would like to get close to her feelings while expressing her delicate and fragile maiden heart. angela I will be continue my role in handling the opening theme of "HameFura X" from the first season! As always Katarina is in a panic while she is growing up slowly. And will we be blinded by romance?! By using that atmosphere as the rhythm, this interesting song will make you excited till you will take some steps. If I didn't encounter "HameFura", I wouldn't be able to create this song. I'm looking forward to the days where I am being filled by the world of "HameFura" again. by atsuko Due to the harsh coronavirus last year, the broadcast of "HameFura" has made us energetic and emotional on a weekly basis... The opening of season 1 "Otome no Route wa Hitotsu Janai!" has won the Composition award of the "2020 Anime Song Award"!! How about the opening theme of season 2..... Since angela is supporting Katarina... Hehehe Ah, it is an interesting song, so do look forward to it along with the anime!! by KATSU Aoi Shouta I felt quite honored to be able to continue handling the ending song. The previous song, BAD END, has an intense band sound, so this new song will have a new image instead. It has some catchy phrases in it, and I believe it will easily get you absorbed into it. I'm also waiting excitedly with everyone to see how the ending fused with the animation as well as the anime. So, check it out with the opening song by angela as well!

With the power of "Return by Death", Subaru has gone back in time over and over again not only to save his own life but also the ones he loves. However, many incidents that others can't perceive have been overwritten through traveling through time, and Subaru had to pay the price of keeping the "memories" he would have shared with others to himself. This article looks back at the events of season 1 and 2 of the TV anime series and the films "Memory Snow" and "Bond of Ice" through the eyes of Emilia and others, and this is a simple chronological chart of the past events revealed up until episode 31 of the TV anime. This data provides a bird's eye view of the events that have taken place in the timeline of the current world. By organizing the events, the words and actions of the characters have a different meaning... We hope this chart will guide you through the past episodes and help you to revalidate the events. [Composed and written by Kigasawa Masashi] ■From the age of lore to right before Subaru gets summoned in another world. 【400 years ago / age of lore】 The "Witch of Envy", a silver-haired half-elf named "Satella", absorbed the other 6 Witches of Sin and brought upon the Great Calamity that destroys most of the world. Satella does not age nor does she die, so she was sealed by the 3 heroes of the time, including a dragon and sage. (Episode 8 "I Cried, Cried My Lungs Out, and Stopped Crying") 【A few hundred years ago / age of lore】 The "Dragon Kingdom of Lugnica" was founded by the pact between the current royalty and the dragon. The dragon watches over the kingdom from the Great Waterfall, hoping for the peace of the kingdom. As for the promise and what the dragon wished for, is unknown. (Episode 6 "The Sound of Chains") 【Age Unknonwn】 The head of the Roswaal family begins to manage the "Sanctuary" currently known as the "Graveyard". (Episode 28 "The Long-Awaited Reunion") 【About 50 years ago】 The "Demi-human War" brakes out between the humans and demi-humans. The war ends with the defeat of the demi-humans and leads to the increase of prejudice towards half races between humans and demi-humans. ("Re:Zero: Bond of Ice") 【17 years ago】 Ram and Rem are born in an Oni village. Twin Oni's were traditionally killed as unwanted children, but due to Ram having extraordinary power, though having only one horn, the sisters are decided to be kept alive. A few years later, the village is attacked by the Witch Cult and every Oni except Ram and Rem are killed. Ram loses her horn. Later, the sisters are taken in at the Roswall mansion as maids. (Episode 11 "Rem") 【10 and a few years ago】 The former "Sword Saint" Theresia van Astrea, wife of Wilhelm van Astrea, who later comes to serve Crusch, dies during the battle against the White Whale. (Episode 20 "Battle Against the White Whale", Episode 21 "Wilhelm van Astrea") 【A few years ago】 Emilia, who was frozen in the Elior Forest, awakens. She was living alone in the woods until she contracts with Puck during the battle against the Arbitrator Melakuera. Though Emilia has lost her memory before awakening, she has a vague image of the moment when the forest got frozen, a silver-haired woman with the same hairpiece as her, and a figure similar to Petelgeus. ("Re:Zero: Bond of Ice") 【A few years ago】 Roswaal invites Emilia, who lived in Elior Forest, to live in his mansion. He and Puck engaged in a magic battle so furious, the map got rewritten. ("Re:Zero : Memory Snow") 【Half a year ago】 The former king went into hiding at the same time as an epidemic spread through the castle. The king and his descendants become victims of the epidemic and their bloodline was cut off. As a result, the Sage Council is in charge of the country until the new king is elected in the Royal Election. (Episode 7 "The Happy Roswaal Mansion Family") 【Age Unknonwn】 Frederica, who worked at Roswaal's mansion along with Ram and Rem, leaves her job a little while before Subaru comes to this world. (Episode 27 "The Next Location") ■Events that took place in season 1 of the TV series. 【Episode 1 to 3】 Subaru gets summoned in the royal capital of the Kingdom of Lugnica. After taking a look around the city, he passes by Kadmon's fruit shop. He realizes he has the power of "Return by Death" and thinks of enjoying his life in this world by welling his cellphone worth of over 20 sacred gold coins. However, he could not forget about the girl who called herself "Satella" and decides to save her. He finds out that the emblem had been already stolen, so he goes to see Felt to get it back from her. On the way to meet her, Subaru bumps into a beautiful lady. She is Elsa a.k.a. the "Bowel Hunter", the person who asked Felt to steal the insignia in the first place. Elsa sees through Subaru's hostility, anger, and fear, but leaves him alone because she doesn't want to make a scene. Later, Subaru meets Felt and waits for Elsa at Old Man Rom's stolen goods warehouse, when "Satella" comes to the stolen goods warehouse to get back her emblem. At first, she thinks Subaru as a member of the bandits, but changes her mind after being attacked by Elsa. During the fight against Elsa along with Felt and Reinhard, the knight Subaru met in the back alley, she recognizes that Subaru is on her side. After fighting off Elsa, she tells Subaru her true name "Emilia" and takes him in temporarily to take care of his wounds from the battle. 【Episode 4 to 11】 Midnight, Subaru wakes up to find himself in a bedroom of Roswaal's mansion. Emilia protected him and tended his wounds. However, he accidentally enters Betty's Forbidden Library and gets put back into a coma by her. He wakes up in the morning and suddenly grabs the hands of Rum and Rem. The two of them are confused by his "perverted actions". They can't be blamed, because to the sisters, it's the first time to meet him, but he held their hands as if he knew them for a very long time and showed them unwavering trust. Moreover, he continues to act in an inexplicable manner since he starts working at Roswaal's mansion. Subaru acts cheerful while working hard at his job. But it is clear to everyone else that he is making it up, and was at the brink of breaking down anytime. So Emilia tries to comfort him by letting him sleep on her lap though she's only known him for a short time. Despite his strange actions, Subaru is loved by the villagers and even gains the trust of Roswaal so much as he asks him to look after Emilia during his absence. And when he finds out that there is a demon beast hiding in the village, he fights it with no regard for his own life. Though he couldn't capture the "child" who was said to be controlling the demon beast, he was able to save Petra and the other kids of the village. Roswaal sets his new goal of "winning the Royal Election to kill the dragon", and Subaru makes a promise with Emilia to go on a "date". 【"Re:Zero : Memory Snow"】 Right after defeating the demon beast, Subaru was checking out places in the village while being excited for his "date" with Emilia. However, before going on the "date", a strange incident happens at Roswaal's mansion. Puck goes into his Hatsumaki (a magical release period), bringing the whole mansion to a sudden surge of cold weather. Subaru tries to do something about the situation and decides to organize a snow festival in the village. 【Episode 12 to 25】 With the addition of Felt, the last "Dragon Priestess", the Royal Election begins with 5 candidates, including Emilia. But at the declaration, Subaru doesn't listen to Emilia's "wishes" and goes out of control again, calling himself Emilia's knight, which results in her strongly rejecting him. Subaru is feeling bad for himself from being rejected by Emilia. Rem tries to cheer him up by taking him to the market, but instead, he suddenly grows weak and becomes frightened, as if he were a different person. Rem is worried that maybe he got tired of the crowd at the market, but Subaru suddenly grabs her hand and tells her to run. Obviously, he is in despair. Rem holds him gently and encourages him though she doesn't know what's going on with him. Subaru gets back on his feet and defeats the demon beast "White Whale" along with Crusch, Anastasia, and others. He makes peace with Julius, who he dueled at the royal capital, and together, fights off the Witch Cult led by Petelgeus. However, the story doesn't end happily ever after, and a mysterious incident suddenly happens, Rem's presence disappears... ■Events that took place in season 1 of the TV series. 【Episode 26 to 31】 Rem's presence disappeared because she was attacked by the Sin Archbishops of "Greed" and "Gluttony", and the Sin Archbishop of "Gluttony" devoured her past and presence. Moreover, she shows no signs of waking up. Subaru and Emilia decides to go to the "Sanctuary", where Roswaal had taken refuge along with the villagers of Irlam Village, to inform him about the situation and ask for guidance. The "Sanctuary" is the graveyard of the "Witch of Greed" Echidna, which has been managed by the Roswaal family for generations, and is an important hideout for Roswaal. His "tricks" to make Subaru a worthy knight of Emilia's by leaving him on his own in situations which wouldn't have been a problem if Roswaal were there, were revealed. But the "Sanctuary" was currently in an unstable state with some of the villagers rebelling. The residents were not allowed to leave the boundaries of the "Sanctuary". Those who wanted to go out took the villagers of Irlam hostage and planned to make Emilia take the test to open up the "Sanctuary". But that wasn't the only hardship that awaited them. Elsa the "Bowel Hunter" is after Subaru's life, and he has to go through the painful "Return by Death" experiences again. [Things Subaru lost from "Return by Death"] When you cut out the events in different timelines and take a bird's eye view of the events in chronological order, Rem and the fruit vendor Kadmon must have thought it odd how Subaru suddenly spaces out or mentally breaks down. To those who do not have the power to travel through time, it's a continuous timeline. But for Subaru, it's a save point at the end of a long detour. Each "moment" has events that have been overwritten as if they "never happened". Meeting Emilia for the first time and taking care of a lost child. The promise to get a haircut by Rem. Being taught how to read and write by Ram... The deeper the relation was, the harder the "loss" hits Subaru. For example, how he meets with Subaru was always the same, and with the merchant Otto, it was better that it was overwritten, since the tragedy of the White Whale was gone. His "Return by Death" not only hurts him physically but also scars him in the heart. Elsa's attack brings him back to the test of "Return by Death". The 2nd season has only just started. Will Subaru "grow" as Roswaal expects him to? How will the new "truth" be revealed? Let's look forward to seeing what happens.

From the current TV anime, "Shaman King", comes information about the characters of "Team Hao", a group of Shamans led by the mysterious boy Hao. Cast members include Hayashibara Megumi and Okiayu Ryuutarou.

He is the right-hand man of Hao and usually acts gentlemanly, but has no mercy for those who insult Hao. Q1. What do you think makes the show interesting? Many characters appear in "Shaman King" and each of them has a unique personality and background. I think the meticulous character settings are one of the things that make the story so interesting. Q2. Tell us about your enthusiasm for playing the character. I'm both grateful and nervous to be playing the role of Luchist. I will do my best to show the way of life and charm of Hao's follower/confidant. Opacho (voice: Hayashibara Megumi ) ■Character Introduction Hao's subordinate and a member of "Hoshi-Gumi". He is always with Hao and is the only person Hao can open up to. ■Comment It's nice to see you all again after so long. But it's actually not been so long. I was probably always in your heart. We meet again because I knew that. I love Hao-sama. I also love You-sama because he's Hao-sama's precious, but the girl with Yoh-sama is scary. Matilda Matisse (voice: Minami Wakana) ■Character Introduction Hao's subordinate and a member of "Hana-Gumi". Nicknamed Matti. In contrast to Marion, she is energetic and very emotional. Her spirit is Jack, who has sharp knives in both hands. Q1. What do you think makes the show interesting?

Seeing it again as an adult, I now realize that it is not only about the battle scenes, but also about the bonds, courage, and love. Q2. Tell us about your enthusiasm for playing the character. I never thought I'd get to perform in the "Shaman King" that I've known since I was a child, to be a part of this world! I'm both surprised and very grateful!! I'll work hard to live in and fight through this world along with Matti! Kanna Bismarch (voice: Endou Saki) ■Character Introduction Hao's subordinate and the leader of "Hana-Gumi".

Tell us about your enthusiasm for playing the character. Dear Kanna-sama, Thank you for returning, nice to meet you. I knew about you one-sidedly. It's still a little hard for me to believe that the day we're joining our souls has come. The person we trust is the same person that Mari and Matti trust. We'll carry out Hana-Gumi's justice! Marion Phauna (voice: Shindou Kei) ■Character Introduction Hao's subordinate and a member of "Hana-Gumi". Nicknamed Mari. She's usually calm and doesn't express her feelings. Her spirit is a western gunman, Chuck. Q1. What do you think makes the show interesting? A mystical world with Shamans and Spirits, Yoh's charming gap between his usual laid-back attitude and the coolness during the battles, the stories of each character that make you want to know more about them... I think it has countless attractions. Q2. Tell us about your enthusiasm for playing the character. Back when it was being serialized, I looked forward to reading it every week and reread it over and over again. It's an honor to be able to be part of such an amazing piece of work. Though my legs are trembling with nervousness and excitement, I'll do my best to face Mari-chan. Please watch over us with your warm eyes.

About 40% of the age group were teens, and about 30% were in their 20s. ■ Reliable big brothers are ranked in! 1st place 1st place goes to Rengoku Kyoujurou from "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" with an approval rating of about 25%, up from 3rd place last year. The new popularity of Rengoku Kyoujurou comes from the release of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train". Readers commented on the inspiring character, "This character made me the fan of Hino. This is the first time I have felt that the role and voice are synchronized so well. The reliability, kindness, and warmth of Rengoku-san were conveyed fully thanks to Hino-san's expressiveness.", and "I cried so many times at the movie theater, as it was like the Rengoku's soul had transferred to Hino-san." Famous lines such as "Burn your heart" and "I won’t let anyone here die" are also popular, and many fans have longed for "Just the ideal older friend!". 2nd place 2nd place goes to Kamui from "Gintama" with an approval rating of about 23%, which is the same rank as last year. Readers pointed on the performing of various elements, "I love the gap between his usual cute smiling face and fierce side of the battle-loving when he sees an opponent.", "Hino-san's voice is perfect for Kamui, who has a cute face and is actually scary. Hino-san is too good to give a feeling of indescribable fear!", and "It is a character who shows the greatness of the voice actor because the performance of everyday life and battle scenes are so cool."

He is an ideal captain who is drawing out each person's individuality and scolding exactly when he needs to.", and "It was cool of him that he gathered monster-class friends together and enjoyed volleyball." Characters from top-3 are all based on works of "Weekly Shonen Jump". ■ Let's introduce other comments! For Shinkai Hayato from "Yowamushi Pedal", "The best sprinter in Hakone Academy.

It's cute even if he's a little off.", and "Hino's voice fits very well with the hot-blooded person."

Voice actors Namikawa Daisuke and Ishikawa Kaito appeared in "Say You to Yo Asobi (Thu) [Namikawa Daisuke, Ishikawa Kaito] #15", which was broadcast on the "Anime LIVE Channel" of the new future TV "ABEMA" on July 29, 2021. In this episode, Eguchi Takuya and Umehara Yuichiro appeared as guests. Besides that Namikawa and Ishikawa produced the two guests in a tacky way in "Let’s examine if a hot guy is hot no matter what he does!", and they also examined the two, who are unflappable by anything, on the moment when their hearts were touched in a corner, "Where is the deadline for Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched?" and more. It had been a long time since Eguchi was the Monday MC of "Say You to Yo Asobi 2nd season" and Umehara hadn't appeared as a guest in 1 year and 9 months. It’s been a long time for both of them to join the show, but started in a relaxed mood; they did a skit with dummy head mikes, talked about an episode of a drinking party with Ishikawa, whom he "knows well". Eguchi and Umehara are currently appearing in the TV animation "TSUKIPRO THE ANIMATION 2", which is also being broadcast on "ABEMA". This anime is set in the entertainment agency TSUKIPRO, TSUKINO TALENT PRODUCTION, and depicts the human drama of the four units that belong to the agency with music full of uniqueness. Eguchi plays as Takamura Shiki and Umehara plays as Murase Dai, both belonging to "SolidS". Eguchi talked about the charm saying, "The interesting thing about this work is that the characters get old every year!" Umehara nodded his head heartily and said, "We can grow old together, can't we?" He talked about the joy of the TSUKIPRO world where you can grow old together with the characters. Eguchi also mentioned that the characters' personalities change as they get older and said, "That's one of the fun parts of acting." He revealed that he enjoyed how the characters grow while acting. The show continued with the "Let’s examine if a hot guy is hot no matter what he does!" corner. In this corner, Namikawa and Ishikawa produce two stylish and cool guests by coordinating their clothes and walk in a tacky way. Namikawa produces Eguchi and Ishikawa produces Umehara. Eguchi and Umehara seemed to be excited about the idea of being produced in a tacky way, saying "I hope they'll break through" and "If we're going to do it." The Ishikawa and Umehara team immediately started coordinating, but Ishikawa struggled with Umehara, who looked good in everything, saying, "He looks good when I put the clothes on. He struggled with the coordination, but "So Tacky Fashion Show: Tacky Collection" began. First of all, Umehara appeared on stage wearing denim with a swan popping out of his pants, looking as hilarious as a comedian. Everyone burst into laughter at the gap. However, Namikawa and Eguchi immediately accepted it and said, "That's nice." and "How can I say? Isn't he cool?", which was an unexpected reaction. Ishikawa, the producer of tacky fashion, was frustrated, saying "It looks good on you" and "I couldn't hide how cool he is." The Namikawa and Eguchi team followed, wearing red pants, rose-patterned shirts, and frilly heart aprons, which makes it look eccentric. As Eguchi walked down the runway in a joyful mood, they praised him saying, "Doesn't this look like a fashion show?" and "On the contrary, he looks like wearing a high brand." However, when Eguchi returned to the studio, he unexpectedly changed his mind, saying, "It's very different being here," and "It's gotta be a runway," which was a turnover. As a result, the Namikawa and Eguchi team ended up with an overwhelming victory. Umehara, who had just devoted himself, said masochistically, "I’m the one who did the dirty work," which made the studio once again filled with laughter. The four enjoyed the corner "Where is the deadline for Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched?," which was to find out the moment when the unflappable Eguchi and Umehara's hearts were touched by questions including "A random restaurant tastes really good," "Winning 5,000 yen with a scratch card," and "The costume provided is a bathing suit." Looking back on the 90-minute live broadcast, Umehara said, "This is the most fun I've had this year," indicating that they had enjoyed a stimulating night out. At the end of the show, it was announced that Ishiya Haruki would appear as a guest next time on August 5, which made the audience look forward to what kind of night out they would have next time. In addition, "Say You to Yo Asobi" is currently running a special program titled "Overcome the Summer Heat! Do Your Best With Energy." Two episodes from each day of the week from the previous episodes of "Say You to Yo Asobi 2021" are being streamed free of charge for one week.

She is quite an intensive character from her appearance scene, and it makes me wonder how should I voiced her. As I will attend the recording with all I have, please look forward to it! I'm also looking forward to the broadcast as this will be a work where you can't get your eye off the curious story development! Minamikawa Mizukiyo, voiced by Chiba Shouya I'm glad that I got a role in this work. There are various lines that make my heart ache when reading it. As there are various characters with strong convictions and beliefs, the view from the relaxed Minamikawa is quite rare, so I will be enjoying voicing him! ■Broadcast Information Broadcast starts in October 2021, on TBS, BS11, and other channels TBS 1:28 AM~ on October 7 (Thursday) BS11 11:30 AM~ on October 8 (Friday) ※The broadcast time might change ※A total of 24 episodes broadcast in 2 cours consecutively ■Cast Members Kakehashi Mirai: Irino Miyu Nasse: Ogura Yui Hanakago Saki: M・A・O Revel: Hanae Natsuki Mukaidou Nanato: Morikawa Toshiyuki Baret: Kayano Ai Uryuu Kanade: Ishikawa Kaito Meyza: Inoue Kikuko Sokotani Hajime: Maeno Tomoaki Balta: Midorikawa Hikaru Yamada Mimi: Maeda Kaoru Minamikawa Mizukiyo: Chiba Shouya ■Staff Original Work: Ohba Tsugumi, Obata Takeshi (Shueisha Jump Comic Publishing) 1st Series Director: Takahashi Hideya 2nd Series Director: Kise Kazuchika Character Design: Ohya Kouji Series Composition: Inozume Shinichi Background Art: Kusanagi Art Setting: Narita Hideyasu (Kusanagi) Color Setting: Ikeda Ayumi CG Director: Ikeda Masanori (Digital Frontier) Sound Director: Hamano Takatoshi Music Production: Magic Capsule Editor: Ueno Yusuke (IMAGICA Entertainment Media Service) Music: Tokuda Masahiro Animation Production: Signal.

Anime Commemoration Illustration from the original author, Yasu Miko Wakayama Shion/Kawai Mai My name is Wakayama Shion, and I will be playing Kawai Mai this time. While it is a pleasure for me to play the favorite character of my favorite manga, I'm under big pressure. To deliver the charm of Kawai, who is reckless and slow, but sharp minds and senses, I will do my best so please look at an ordinary life at Machiyama Police Station. Ishikawa Yui/Fuji Seiko This is the theme that picks up the police officers, who always work for the safety of us and our cities. I participated in the audition by thinking, “I can support them in some way”, because I have an experience of being helped by the police officers. Fuji, the role I play, is the former elite of the police department, and is called “Miss Perfect” ...but has a lot of points that should be corrected. I want to perform the daily life of police officers filled with honest comments with laughter and coolness. I want to make it appealing, together with Wakayama Shion (Kawai)! Director Satou Yuuzou The live-action drama is already on air , and the anime adaptation “Police in a Pod” is finally will be released Please watch the anime. This is the diary of police officers at the special workplace of the police station, with a reckless, new police officer Kawai will be trained (?) and that is so cute (?). Even a police officer is an ordinary girl if she takes off her uniform, and I am certain that you will support Kawai, who experiences something unique even for police officers. Series Structure; Kingetsu Ryuunosuke Never draws out something necessary, and don’t add anything unnecessary... Please look for pure 100% “Police in a Pod”. I could see Yasu-sensei every week for the script meetings and even could listen background episodes... It was a wonderful experience for her manga fan!
