Keaton Yamada, who has been narrating the anime "Chibi Maruko-chan" since its first broadcast, will be leaving the show after the episode "One Spring Day" broadcast on March 28. Details of the episode and comments from Keaton and the entire show staff members have arrived. The anime "Chibi Maruko-chan" started broadcasting on January 7, 1990, and this year marks the 32nd year of its broadcast. The story, which depicts the heartwarming daily life of the main character Maruko, her family, and friends in a fun, funny, and sometimes sad way, has been loved by children and adults of all ages since it started broadcasting. Keaton has narrated 1445 episodes over the past 31 years. The episode to be broadcast on March 28 is called "A Day in Spring.” It will be a story about the cherry blossoms that are perfect for spring, with the usual cheerful and heartwarming atmosphere that surrounds Maruko and her family. At the end of the episode, there will be a little surprise to send off Keaton, who has been narrating "Chibi Maruko-chan" for 31 years. The last episode of "Chibi Maruko-chan" where Keaton Yamada performs will start broadcasting on March 28th at 6:00 pm. Be sure not to miss the last new episode where you can listen to his witty comedy and warm narration as he watches over Maruko and the others. ＜Here is the full text of the comments＞ Keaton Yamada Q. This episode was a little different from your usual narration. What did you do to make it different? A. I've always preferred dialogue to narration, but since it was a dialogue other than narration, it was difficult, even though it was only two words. However, I was able to express emotions that I could not in narration, and I was happy to feel like an actor again. Q. You have been acting for 31 years, but what is your most memorable moment? A. Sakura's death. Actually, when she passed away, I had decided in my heart that I would leave "Chibi Maruko-chan" when I turned 75, but I wasn't ready to tell her yet. I wish I could have told her today, right here. That would have been my biggest regret. Actually, I narrated Sakura-san's life story at her farewell party, together with TARAKO. But it was already too late to thank her, so I just wanted to say thank you. Q. Which Chibi Maruko-chan character would you like to play other than the narration? A. I don't have any, since they are mostly elementary school kids, but I would like to play an odd old guy, because I like that kind of character. Narration has a narrow range of voices and inflections, so it's hard to create your own pauses. You have to fit it in exactly to scale, you have to let go of yourself, and it's hard to put your "feelings" into it, so I've always been uncomfortable with it. So I guess that’s the secret to my longevity: I was never satisfied with my performance. Just tried to do everything. Q. What would you like to say to the new narrator? A. I’m not sure who it could be, but I think it's good to let his world be his own. It feels even better for me. I'd like to see it “changed!” so that I can recognize that it's someone else’s performance. From now on, I will continue to watch "Chibi Maruko-chan" as a member of the audience. Q. What do you want to say to your fans? A. I would like to thank all the fans and the many staff members who have worked on the show, especially the staff members of "Chibi Maruko-chan" who have worked for it for 31 years. It's only once in a lifetime that you come across such a long-lived program. Of the many narration jobs I've had, "Chibi Maruko-chan" is the one that requires the most care. The amount of lines is small, but it takes a lot of energy, so I have to be very careful about my physical condition and so on. I am grateful to all the staff for helping me make it to this age. [From All the Staff Members of The Program] Thank you very much for always supporting Maruko, her friends and the show with your funny and warm voice for 31 years and 1445 times! We can't thank you enough, Mr. Keaton. Thank you for all your hard work! We would like to dedicate this "One Day in Spring" where you are leaving, Mr. Keaton. To all the audience who have always supported us, please don't miss this special 30 minutes until the very end! (C) Sakura Production / Nippon Animation

TV animation "Chibi Maruko-chan" will hold a "Four Weeks in a Row! Spring Special Month" in March. It will feature Kamiya Hiroshi and Kaji Yuuki and others as voice actors and will be full of special programs. The "Four Weeks in a Row! Spring Special Month" will be held on March 7, 14, 21, and 28. Kamiya-san played the role of Hiroshi, a fifth grader who loves cameras, in the episode "Fujiki, I want Sasayama-san's photo" broadcast on March 7. Hiroshi first appeared on the show about 20 years ago and has been Kamiya's signature role ever since. This is the first time in about two years that Kamiya has played the role of Hiroshi, who is a little more mature and cool. Kaji-san appeared in the episode "Maruko and the Cheeky Izzi" aired on the 21st as Yuji, a boy the same age as Maruko who was brought to Tomozo's friend's house when he came to visit. In the episode, Maruko and Yuji are quarrelsome at first, but after an incident, they become friends. The scene at the end of the episode where Yuji performs "Uirou Seller," one of the eighteen Kabuki plays for Maruko, is actually a scene that the program staff incorporated into the story after hearing Kaji-san's own "Gairou Seller" on YouTube. The annual one-hour special to be broadcast on the 14 will feature the TV personality Ijuin Hikaru as a guest voice actor. And on the 28, there will be a special 30-minute program to thank narrator Yamada Keaton, who will be leaving the program on the same day. "Four weeks in a row!

Kamiya Hiroshi Q. It's been almost two years since Hiroshi appeared in the show, but how was it playing him after such a long time? A. "I think Hiroshi's first appearance was about 20 years ago, but the number of times he has appeared is probably still in the single digits... Because of this rarity, I get nervous every time I remember his first appearance!" Q. What do you and Hiroshi have in common? A. "When I was in the fifth grade, there was a fierce NES boom. It's been more than 30 years since then, but I still enjoy playing games... I have a feeling that Hiroshi will do the same." Q. What was your own love episode when you were a child? A. "When I was in the fifth grade of elementary school, I liked a classmate named Saito-san. Unfortunately, I can't remember her first name... It's not that I can't remember her these days, but I can't go back in my memory and find myself remembering her. Probably, boys back then were a little embarrassed to remember girls' first names. Boys are stupid, aren't they?" Q. What are the highlights of this episode? A. "The highlight is Fujiki's love life. As for me, I was given the role of an announcer for the first half of the show, and I had to improvise my lines, but since the world of "Chibimaruko-chan" is in the Showa era and the setting is Shimizu City, I didn't know what kind of news I should tell, so I called out to Honda-san, the sound director, and asked for his wisdom. ... I just wanted to let you know that I had such a hard time!" Kaji Yuuki Q. How did you feel when you found out you would be participating as a guest voice actor? A. "I was so, so happy! I was so happy...I couldn't believe it right away, so when I got the call from the office, I couldn't help but ask, "Are you sure it's Chibi Maruko-chan, the character that everyone in Japan knows?" I asked them back (lol). "Even now that the recording is over, it still feels like a dream. It's a memory that will last a lifetime!" Q. How did you play the role of the boy Yuji? A. "Yuji is a mischievous boy, just like any elementary school boy. But if you know the reason for his mischief, you will feel that he is a very cute boy. And then there's the occasional smile and masculinity... I was really taken aback by this gap (lol)! I'm honored to play a boy of the same age as Maruko. I hope he'll appear again someday...!" Q. This time, the story incorporates the "Uirou" selling technique, which is also shown on YouTube. A. "Selling 'uirou' in front of my seniors... is there anything in this world that makes me more nervous than that? No, there isn't (lol)! However, Yuji is still in elementary school. However, Yuji is still in elementary school, so I tried to make my performance more fun than delicious. I imagine that he feels proud of the "special magic" that his grandpa taught him." Q. What are the highlights of this episode? A. "It's an original story with a lot of scenes with just Maruko and Yuji, so I was able to talk a lot! I hope you enjoy the indescribable atmosphere that only elementary school students can create! Personally, I was happy to be able to hum the familiar tune of "Chibi Maruko-chan" (lol). Also... please pay attention to the way Yuji calls Maruko!" (C) Sakura Production / Nippon Animation

"Night Head 2041" is an original TV anime revived by the script of the original author, George Iida, who has been the director of the TV doramas for more than 30 years. In addition to siblings Kirihara Naoto and Naoya who suffer because of their supernatural powers in the dorama, another pair of brothers, Kuroki Takuya and Yuya, who are hunting the Kirihara siblings with powers as a national security unit, appears in this work. Welcome to a new story of "Night Head". To commemorate the start of the broadcast, comments from Toyokawa Etsushi, who played the role of Kirihara Naoto in the TV dorama broadcast in 1992 have arrived. Furthermore, since the main characters of "Night Head 2041" are the Kirihara brothers and the Kuroki brothers, comments were also received from celebrity siblings who are active in various fields. It includes Miura Yutaro, Ito Shunsuke (Oswald), Tsuchiya Shimba, Tsuchiya Honoka, Iketani Naoki, Kashiwabara Shuji, Yoshida Brothers, Yamagami Brothers, and Daitaku. "Night Head 2041" is on air on Fuji TV "+ Ultra" and other channels every Wednesday from July 14. The first broadcast is scheduled to start at 01:05 A.M., which is a 10-minute push. Toyokawa Etsushi (Kirihara Naoto) "Night Head" is a special work in my career that has made many people know me. I have a lot of memories related to both Director Iida and Shinji. It was a pretty tough shoot, but it was a fulfilling six months. "Night Head 2041" is also based on the original work by Director Iida, so it is a work with a considerably upgraded worldview. I'll be looking forward to watching each episode. Miura Yutaro [Singer-songwriter] The fully remade anime adaptation of "Night Head" is released. Moreover, the story is set in the near future of 2041. My heart is throbbing. I feel that my younger brother is an irreplaceable family and companion to me, though not as much as the Kirihara brothers. I think there were many things that become possible to overcome when there are two of them. Brothers who are "running away" and brothers who are "chasing". How will do these two groups interact and what kind of fate do they face? I am very much looking forward to it as a viewer. Ito Shunsuke (Oswald) [Comedian] Many people who are chasing their ideals are unaware of their own abilities. For example, some people end their lives as office workers despite their tremendous talent for baseball. However, there are many cases where it leads to happiness. Compared to resisting unwanted situations with unwanted abilities, like those in this story. Thinking about this, my sister, who has the happiness of being able to jump into the desired world with the desired abilities, seems very strange. Tsuchiya Shimba [Voice Actor] This anime is awesome! When I finished watching episode 1, I muttered without thinking, "I'll be addicted to this." A magnificent yet easy-to-enter world view, in which the romantic theme of "supernatural powers" is intertwined with the universal issue of "national organizations and individuals." Definitely a god anime. Please watch episode 1. I'm sure you will understand my excitement! Honoka Tsuchiya [Talent] Speedy and powerful battle action showed in Japan's top-level CG anime. It feels so real that you are immersed in that world. It's amazing! I forgot about the time, and I literally binge-watched! What will happen to the story that unfolds over psychic powers... I can't help but looking forward to it! Iketani Naoki [World record holder in the Monster Box at 23 boxes] ESP, brothers, fate... I enjoyed the uncertain story-telling where the brothers are intersected with various destinies in the near future. I chose the same sport as my brother and he was my senior, so I found it very nice for the brothers in this story to get along and help each other. Kashiwabara Shuji [Actor / Artist] That legendary masterpiece "Night Head" is back as an anime with the script by George Iida, who is also the original author! That's why I was so excited. When I started to watch it, I was absorbed in the beauty of the visual and the interesting story, and before I noticed it, I was completely immersed in the worldview. Since it's a brother story, I, who also have a brother, can sympathize, and I'm looking forward to future developments!! Yoshida Brothers [Musician] ● Older brother Yoshida Ryoichiro Believe in power, believe in friends, believe in now, but don't know the truth ... There is something in common with 2021. However, the answer may be in this anime !? Please watch it. ● Younger brother Yoshida Kenichi What's going on? Unpredictable development. You will be drawn into each brother's past, dots and lines, and the future beyond. What will do people with powers to a government that enforces governance with a biased thinking? I can't help looking forward to the continuation. Yamagami brothers [Magicians] ● Older brother Yamagami Yoshinosuke "Night Head" is a dorama that was released even before we were born and it will be revived as a TV anime this year. I can't help but look forward to seeing how two brothers will interact with each other, with rich content and drawing that make you feel as if you were watching a movie. Is this brother's encounter a coincidence or inevitability? The time of "Night Head 2041" is now. ● Younger brother, Yamagami Akinoshin SF story unfolds with a tremendous force of action. Two brothers are at the mercy of fate. ESP, law, times, and a mysterious girl. As each thought and feeling intersect, brothers' feelings become touching. I felt that there was something I could learn for me being the brother. This is an original anime that can be enjoyed not only by anime fans but also by drama fans! Please take a look at it. Daitaku [Comedians] ● Older brother Dai Yoshimoto The near future where psychic powers are banned. A world where people with powers are suppressed by military power, and even "AKIRA" is designated as a forbidden book. Brothers vs. brothers fight there. Although they are in different positions, there is unchanging brotherhood. I like the development and the sense of tempo that go one after another This work is recommended for all brothers. By the way, we can also use twin telepathy. Just kidding. ● Younger brother, Yoshimoto Taku Everything starts with a dot. The points are twisted and connected. As the word says, two pairs of brothers with abilities are connected in different positions. And the existence of a mysterious girl. A sci-fi action set in the near future, and the CG images are unbearably beautiful. It feels great to see the abilities and people that become clear in each episode! If everyone sees it, the barrier will definitely be broken! (C) George Iida / Night Head 2041 Production Committee

I guess that many people should have fallen in love with him......", "Furuya-san uses different tones of voice, which make the characters' charms stand out", and "Thanks to Furuya-san's voice, I can enjoy different characters' different personalities". A third of the voters chose the name of Furuya Rei, and left the comments like, "I think it's wonderful of him to always stays strong in his belief" and "It's cool that he is determined to thoroughly follow on his intention, and does whatever he can do". 2nd Place 2nd place went to Amuro Ray from "Mobile Suit Gundam".
