For more information, please visit the official website. ＜For more information, please visit the official website. Omoinotake I'm Omoinotake, and I'm in charge of the opening song for the TV anime "Blue Period". I'm honored to be involved in this wonderful work filled with the pain and wonder of "creating". We, three members, didn't have any "talent" at all. "Then, what should we do?" we thought, after years of trial and error, we reached a street live performance in Shibuya, where Blue Period is set. "Doing what you love doesn't mean it's always fun." We overlapped ourselves with the words of Yatora and turned the overflowing words and melody into a song. We've been a band for nine years now, and just like Yatora, who said, "I love to draw," I think we just "love music." "EVERBLUE" is the opening song of Blue Period that we created. We put all the complexes and conflicts, the initial impulse of the adolescents, the anguish, and the hope that awaits us in the future into the song. I hope that many people will feel the same as this blue wish. mol-74 This time, I’m in charge of the ending theme song for the anime "Blue Period". I'm very happy and honored because I love this manga. The anguish and struggle he went through to create his work, and the joy and excitement he felt when it was completed. Although the cultures of art and music are different, there are many parts of the story that overlap with my own, and the main character, Yatora, who is desperately fighting against his own situation, has encouraged me many times. In "Replica," I put some messages that say, "Don't expect someone else to change the world, but change the world by yourself." I would be happy if this song can get close to you in your struggle against the current situation. ■Staff Original Story: Yamaguchi Tsubasa "Blue Period" (serialized in Kodansha's "Afternoon") General Director: Masunari Koji Director: Asano Katsuya Series Composition/Screenwriter: YoshidaReiko Character Design : Shitaya Tomoyuki Art Director: Nakamura Ken, Kaneko Yuji Art Setting : Ogawa Mamio, Nakajima Mika Director of Photography: Hattori Yasushi Color Design: Utagawa Ritsuko 3DCG Director : Omi Arimasa Editing: Seki Kazuhiko Special Effects: Fukuda Naomasa Music : Inoue Ippei Sound Effects : Koyama Kenji Music Producer : Sakai Kohei Music Production: DMM music Sound Director: Kikuta Hiromi Production: Seven Arcs ■Cast Yaguchi Yatora: Mineta Hiromu Ayukawa Ryuji: Hanamori Yumiri Takahashi Yotasuke: Yamashita Daiki Hashida Haruka: Kawanishi Kengo Kuwana Maki: MiyamotoYume Mori Maru: Aoyagi Mayu Saeki Masako: Hirano Fumi Sumida: Fukunishi Masaya Koigakubo: Kamio Shin’ichiro Utashima: Tachibana Tatsumaru Umino: Hiratsuka Miku Shirai: Hasegawa Ikumi Shirota: Nemoto Yuna Yamamoto: Koga Aoi Oba Mayu: Kazu Yuki Okada Sae: Suyama Emiri Ishii Takuro: Murata Taishi Sakuraba Hanako: Onishi Saori (C) Yamaguchi Tsubasa, Kodansha/Blue Period Production Committee

To celebrate Uchida Yuuma-san's birthday, Anime!Anime! conducted an annual readers' survey, "Who is your favorite character played by Uchida Yuuma-san?". We will introduce the results in this article.
September 17 is Matsuoka Yoshitsugu-san's birthday. He debuted as a voice actor in 2009. He won the Best Rookie Actors in the 6th Seiyu Awards, and the Best Actor in a Leading Role in the 10th. In 2021, he is playing main characters in various works such as "Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won't Lose", "Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie", and "Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night". To celebrate his birthday, we conducted an annual readers' survey, "Who is your favorite character played by Matsuoka Yoshitsugu-san?". There were 403 votes during the survey period from August 30 to September 6. For the gender ratio, the females were the majority with about 70% while the males were about 30%. For the age distribution, we received the majority of responses from readers of young ages: about 45% were teens, and about 25% were in their 20s. ■"SAO" Kirito topped the list. Pay attention to him in the latest title! 1st Place 1st place went to Kirito from "Sword Art Online". The support rating was about 26%, and the character is topping the list again as last year. As Matsuoka-san has been playing this role for years, this character has won many votes. The received comments include, "He is the protagonist of 'SAO' series. Matsuoka-san faithfully plays Kirito growing up, which left me impressions", "Kirito's growth from 1st season, where he was still a little boy, to the latest work, overlaps with Matsuoka-san's life as a voice actor. I am heartily grateful that Matsuoka-san cuddles up to Kirito with all his soul, and brings him into life", and "He was almost speechless in 'War of Underworld', however, Matsuoka-san's performance still impressed me." In "Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night", which will be premiered on October 30, Matsuoka-san will play the role of 14-year-old Kirito again. The readers said that "To see the PV, I felt Kirito in the 1st series from 10 years ago", showing their expectations. 2nd Place 2nd place went to Hashibira Inosuke from "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba". The support rating was about 12%, and he moved up from 3rd place of last year. The readers consider him having various charms, saying "As his line 'Headlong rush', he is absolutely straightforward, honest, and wild. Although he used to be brutal and behave in an aggressive manner, he has been changing through encounters with people's kindness, and the story depicts his failures in terms of both skills and mental. Matsuoka-san's performance made such scenes more realistic", "His roars when he shows his skills are so robust and tremendous that make us viewers worry about Matsuoka-san's throat", and "He is typically being stubborn, but he sometimes becomes 'giddier' while being with his friends. That's so cute". 3rd Place 3rd place went to Petelgeuse Romanee-Conti from "Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World". The support rating was about 8%, and he remained in the top 3 though he slipped down from 2nd place of last year. Many readers got overwhelmed by his performance that we can possibly describe as being mad, and the received comments include, "Matsuoka-san perfectly pulled off such a crazy character, and when I first heard the performance, I was almost terrified", "Only Matsuoka-san would be able to play the character full of madness. The difference of Petelgeuse in the past was also surprising", and "Matsuoka-san perfectly played the messed-up and mad character. I realized how talented Matsuoka-san is again". ■Let's introduce other comments!! Sora "No Game No Life" "In this character, you can see Matsuoka-san's wonderful aspects such as being cool, cute, and funny. I realized how amazing he is when I saw the latest CM." Twilight the Demon King "Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle" "He is cute in that he is swayed by the Princess despite being the King. Matsuoka-san's voice perfectly matches him, who owns overwhelming power but actually has been living a difficult life." Helios "Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie" "I was impressed by Matsuoka-san faithfully recreating the delicacy of Helios, who is fairly gentle, with his ephemeral and smooth voice just like glass. He was exactly the prince we're dreaming of." Mitsuya Takashi "Tokyo Revengers" "Matsuoka-san excellently expresses the character's gap that he is just like a mom since he is the leader of the handicraft club at school, and takes care of his younger sisters at home at home." The characters from the latest titles in 2021 have also been voted. Multiple characters from the works of 2020 and 2021 have been ranked in. While popular characters received strong support, new characters fared better in the battle. ■Ranking Top 20 －Who is your favorite character played by Matsuoka Yoshitsugu-san? 2021 Edition－ 1.

September 13 is Kayano Ai-san's birthday. She debuted as a voice actor in 2010 and won the Best Rookie Actor Award in the 6th Seiyu Awards. In 2021, she is in various titles including, "Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation", "Girls und Panzer das Finale" Episode 3, and the "ARIA" series. She also released a memorial book & mini-album "Musunde Hiraite" in March to commemorate the 10th anniversary of her debut as a voice actor. To celebrate her birthday, we conducted the same readers' survey as last year asking, "Who's Your Favorite Character Voiced by Kayano Ai-san?" There were 312 votes during the survey period from August 30 to September 6. Most of the voters were male with a gender ratio of 70% male to 30% female, and the age range was on the younger side with 35% under 20 and 35% in their 20s. ■"SAO" Alice tops the list! Characters below 2nd place changed their rankings! 1st Place Alice from "Sword Art Online Alicization" topped the list with 14% of the votes, keeping her at the top for 3 years in a row. Fans supported her for being a fighting heroine with comments like, "Throughout the series, she portrayed every element of Alice, her strength, kindness, and cuteness," and "I had the impression that Kayano-san plays cute characters, but when she played the dignified and powerful Alice, she became a character I admire." The fact that she was in a long-running series, 4 seasons in total including "War of Underworld", is another reason why she left a strong impression on her fans. 2nd Place 2nd place went to Menma from "Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day" with roughly 11% of the votes, moving her up from 5th place last year.

By the way, 2021 is the 10th anniversary year of the broadcast. There were also many comments celebrating the shows 10th anniversary, "I'm happy I got to see Menma after all these years in the special program, radio, and the reading at the event to celebrate the 10th anniversary!" and "As I re-watched the anime from the beginning for the 10th anniversary, I realized once again that this show will never fade away." 3rd Place Kasumigaoka Utaha took 3rd place with roughly 9% of the votes, moving down from 2nd place last year. "The best sadistic, dark-haired heroine! And yet, she's also cute when she's being a chicken," "Her yandere voice and fragile kindness are wonderful. Kayano-san is the only one who can play Utaha senpai," and "I love her dark long hair and big sister character. I'm hoping that "Koisuru Metronome", which follows Utaha senpai as the protagonist, receives an anime adaptation!" are comments that show how the gap between her sharp tongue and her vulnerable side she occasionally shows melted the hearts of so many fans. ■Here are some comments for other characters! For Darkness from "KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World!", "A delusional female warrior is completely different from the characters she played in the past, but she pulled it off, showing her wide range of acting and talent." For Juliet Persia from "Boarding School Juliet", "She's earnest, kind, and her single-minded love is so cute. At the same time, she also has a dignified side aiming straight towards her goal, making her full of charms." For Saeki Sayaka from "Bloom Into You", "Kayano-san's cool voice is perfect for Sayaka. Although she seems to be cool and intelligent, I could feel the subtle and bittersweet emotions of her suppressing her feelings for her love and trying to stay as friends." There were also votes for the title which just had its latest commercial for the original novel released. For Shiro from "No Game No Life", "I love Shiro's cute whisper voice. It's amazing how she sings the ending theme in her voice!", and "Her voice hasn't changed in the newly released commercial, and it made me fascinated by her again." While "SAO" Alice is strong in the 2021 survey, titles that had new developments, such as "Anohana", which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and "No Game No Life", which released its latest commercial, moved up the ranking. ■Top 20 "Who's Your Favorite Character Voiced by Kayano Ai-san? 2021 Edition" 1.

The much-talked-about puppet anime "PUI PUI Molcar" will be released on Blu-rays&DVDs on July 28, 2021. This time, they thought ‘the audio commentary of over 30 minutes for the entire episode was not enough!’ so, it was suddenly decided to include additional dialog interview footage on the Blu-rays. At the same time, a comment video has arrived from director Misato Tomoki and production staff Sato Katsura, who have just finished the recording. “PUI PUI Molcar” was broadcast in January 2021 as the first TV anime series directed by a young and talented puppet anime creator Misato Tomoki. It is a short animation of 2 minutes and 40 seconds per episode that has been trending on Twitter since it was first aired and has made a huge impact in Japan and abroad. Even with the audio commentary for all 12 episodes as a video bonus for the software release, it is still a little over 30 minutes. There are many stories that can't be covered in this short amount of time ......, so at the suggestion of Director Misato, a dialog interview with Sato Katsura, a representative of the production staff, was realized. Director Misato was dressed as the annoying driver of DJ Molcar from the first episode, while Sato was dressed as a bank robber from the second episode, and they talked about the difficulties and behind-the scenes stories of the production. In addition, a comment video from both of them after the recording has arrived. In the video, they also talk about the secret stories of the midsummer shooting and what director Misato paused to realize.
