September has arrived, and the autumn vacation season is approaching. However, due to the restrictions on going out due to COVID-19, it is still difficult to travel and go sightseeing. Here at Anime! Anime!, we would like to introduce some "local-featured anime" that you can feel like traveling being at home. We have picked up five new anime that will be aired in the fall of 2021 and are set in local areas of Japan, such as Nagoya and Okinawa. ■"PuraOre! Pride of Orange" (Nikko, Tochigi) "PuraOre! Pride of Orange" is an animated media mix project by CyberAgent and DMM GAMES. For the first time in anime history, the theme is "women's ice hockey". It is a coming-of-age story set in Nikko, Tochigi, about Mizusawa Manaka and her childhood friends who come to experience the local ice hockey team, the Dream Monkeys, and are awakened to the charm of ice hockey, eventually becoming players in the game. What is the local charm of "PuraOre! Pride of Orange"? The "local" charm of this anime is that it is supervised by Japan's first professional ice hockey team, the "H.C. Tochigi Nikko Ice Bucks," whose home town is Nikko in Tochigi. This makes it a "local anime" that pursues a realistic representation of ice hockey and also works together with the team to promote the attractions of Tochigi, including Nikko and Kinugawa. ■"Shikizakura" (Nagoya and Toyota, Aichi) "Shikizakura" is an original anime from the Tokai area, created by the "Nagoya Anime Project", which transmits anime from Nagoya. The main character, Miwa Sho, a high school student, is suddenly caught up in a battle between a man-eating "Oni" from another world and a team of mysterious power suits. And before he knows it, he too is wearing a power suit to fight the "Oni". This is an adventure drama about Sho and his friends as they fight to become heroes. What is the "local" charm of "Shikizakura"? The Obara district in Toyota, Aichi, where the story takes place, is famous for the "Shikizakura" cherry blossoms that bloom in spring and summer, which is also the title of the story. In addition, many other places in Aichi appear in the anime. Another feature of the anime is that many of the staff and artists are from the Tokai area, including Mashiro Miho (from Toyota), who plays the heroine Myojin Manaka, and Asaka (from Nagoya), who sings the theme song. "Let's Make a Mug Too: Second Stove" (Tajimi, Gifu) The original work of "Let's Make a Mug Too" is a free manga of the same title that originated in Tajimi, Gifu, about "high school girls and pottery". Season 1 of the TV anime was broadcast in April 2021, and this will be Season 2. Set in Tajimi in the southeastern part of Gifu, which is one of the production areas of Minoyaki, a traditional craft, this is a coming-of-age story about four high school girls who become absorbed in the charm of ceramics. What is the "local" charm of "Let's Make a Mug Too: Second Stove" This work is characterized by the fact that the 30-minute film is divided into two parts: the first 15 minutes is the regular "anime part" and the second 15 minutes is the "live-action part." In the second half of the "live-action part," Tanaka Minami and the other four voice actors appear on stage to try their hand at pottery making and show the audience around the stage that was used in the anime, which is a unique "local" charm of this work. It will introduce the charm of Tajimi and pottery through both anime and live action. ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’ (Naha, Okinawa) ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’ is an original short anime set in Naha, Okinawa, which consists of 90-second episodes. The story is a boy-and-meets-girl story about a mysterious summer commotion caused by a high school girl, Higa Maise, who helps out at her family's hotel in Okinawa, and a mysterious young man, Suzuki Ichiro (?), who comes from the mainland. What is the "local" charm of ‘"Deji" Meets Girl’? This work is a very short anime of 90 seconds per episode, so the charm of Okinawa is condensed into it. It takes place in a hotel in Okinawa, so you can feel like a little traveler. There are also fantastic elements such as the appearance of a huge "banyan tree" that breaks through the ceiling of the hotel. Even in a short time, you can enjoy the atmosphere of Okinawa. The Vampire Dies in No Time (Yokohama, Kanagawa) "The Vampire Dies in No Time" is based on a gag manga by Bonnoki Itaru, serialized in "Weekly Shonen Champion." The story is set in Shin-Yokohama, Kanagawa, and depicts the hyping gags of Dralc, a vampire who was feared to be invincible but was actually a "total loser" vampire, Ronald, a vampire hunter who is a hard worker and others. What is the "local" charm of "The Vampire Dies in No Time"? Shin-Yokohama, the setting of this work, is the hometown of the original author, Bonnoki Itaru, and many places that can be considered to be in the Shin-Yokohama area appear in the story. The degree to which the story is recreated will make locals want to say, "This place must be that!", without thinking. Also, since vampires appear in this work, the beautiful night view of Yokohama is another charm. You can enjoy the mysterious world of Shin-Yokohama, where the boundary between reality and gag is blurred. These are the five works introduced above. In addition to the above, there are many TV anime in Autumn, 2021 including "Gunma-chan," where the Gunma Prefecture is in charge of the production and writing and the mascot character of Gunma, "Gunma-chan", is active. This fall, why don't you casually go on a sightseeing trip in "anime"? (C) 2020 PuraOre!

Days with over 30 degrees Celsius are continuing for several days after entering August. You are tired of sweat falling off your body after taking a step outside home, wishing, “I want to go home…”. I found Mikey (Sano Manjirou) with his bangs up off the forehead when watching “Tokyo Revengers”. I was charmed by his beauty even by fully showing his face…I admire his facial expression with organized style. There are charms to the real men with their bangs up off the foreheads, which represents freshness and cleanness. This article will introduce 5 characters with beautiful foreheads who are carefully chosen by the writer. ■”Tokyo Revengers” Sano Manjirou Mikey from “Tokyo Revengers” introduced in the beginning of this article has THE delinquent style, with his long, blond hair and bangs roughly tied up with a hairband. He is the boss of “Tokyo Manji Gang” as a high school student and he is so strong that he has nickname “Mighty Mikey”. He is the role model of the gangs from his appearance to his personality. “Tokyo Revengers” have characters with gang-like hairstyles, including Mohican, Regent style, and close-cropped hairstyle, etc., but many of them are not fresh, because they have scary eyes. (laughter) In contrast, Mikey has identity with childishness, dropping eyes, and kind facial expressions, giving off a vibe that is different from the other characters. While often believed that his youngness is because of the design from the original manga, the freshness also exists in the live-action movie! I want to punch me back then, when saying, “Long blond hairstyle with open forehead does not look good even on handsome Yoshizawa Ryou-san”! The producer of the live-action version, Okada Shouta-san, commented on the production note that, “Mikey=Yoshizawa-san was so perfect that this movie might have failed if he had declined our offer”. (Live-action movie “Tokyo Revengers” is currently showing) ■”Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” Kamado Tanjirou Many people in Japan would answer his name if asked, “which character has a memorable forehead?”. Yes, he is the protagonist of “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba”, which marked the highest box-office revenue in Japanese movie history. (Ranking in August 2021) Tanjirou already had a unique scar on his forehead from episode 1. This is the burn from the time when he protected his younger brother from tipping brazier. Moreover, after clearing the final selection exam, his scar got larger and changed into what we know now. This scar has a surprising secret. This part has not yet been adapted into anime, so please check this out with upcoming anime! I would not say anything to avoid spilers. Also, Tanjirou was the character with a close relationship with forehead, including being good headbutt. ■”Jujutsu Kaisen” Getou Suguru We found the character with charming forehead in the hottest anime of the time, “Jujutsu Kaisen”! He is one of the 4 Special Grade sorcerers in Japan and is also the worst sorcerer who got expelled from Tokyo Jujutsu High, after murdering more than 100 ordinary citizens. His hairstyle is so fashionable, having part of his long black hair arranged into a half up bun with the remaining part of his hair hanging. It should be his obsession to have a part of hair being left as way it is. However, he is teased that “your front hair is weird”. A scar on his forehead draws our eyes. We see stiches…but I will shut my mouth because this anime has not yet been shown in the anime. ■”SHAMAN KING” Asakura You The character with a simple one-length cut is Asakura You from “SHAMAN KING”. His hairstyle is not special, but what we should pay attention to is his forehead in M-shape that looks like Mt. Fuji! The forehead in Mt. Fuji shape is often said that they have old view in love and family: they love family, hate having a quarrel, and tend to rely on others. Is it precisely explaining the personality of Asakura You!? He thinks to save his twin brother Hao from loneliness and pain, and traveling around lawless regions with Anna to deliver “Love & Peace”, etc.… I believe there is no other character that matches the uniqueness of Mt. Fuji forehead other than Asakura You. ■”YuYu Hakusho” Urameshi Yuusuke As the extra edition, please let me introduce my favorite character, Urameshi Yuusuke from “YuYu Hakusho”. Yuusuke is also a delinquent like Mikey, but there is no charisma in him… In the original manga, he drinks, smokes, steals food and money, and does groping, although he is a minor; he is the example of the gang. His hairstyle is the Regent style, which is put into shape with hair wax, like the style popular in 1990’s. Some feel strangeness, although they have seen gangs in “Tokyo Revengers”. However, the charm of Yuusuke is the gap that he sometimes shows, which is drastically different him being a delinquent. He has a strong sense of justice, cares a lot about the weak and hardworking people, and shows courage to stand against those who injured his friends. His forehead is off-topic from what I discussed in this article, but Yuusuke with his natural hairstyle, which can be seen in severe training and battle scenes, are so handsome! His beasty personality can be forgotten with it. Yuusuke’s charm is several gaps showing and hiding over time. ■If you feel southern wind from foreheads, you are the professional Dekorist (Forehead lover) It was off-topic in the extra edition (laughter), but this article introduced 5 characters with appealing foreheads. Each person loves different parts of the characters. If you can relate yourself to my fetichism, “forehead”, please look for other characters with nice foreheads! You may feel southern wind and freshness from forehead in this season♪

And I will be playing the leader of the Meta Liberation Army “Re Destro”. I am partly nervous and happy. I always participate in the session with full stress to compete with young powers from others.

Kitsuki Okitoshi, to you as much as possible. Thank you for letting me in. 【Yamashita Seiichirou/Gaiten】 I am honored to be a part of the wonderful work with strong support. I read the original manga, and the belief of each hero and villain made me think deeply, and shocked my heart. Gaiten is a mysterious character, but I will do my best to play him, together with “Justice of the Meta Liberation Army” in my heart. Please continue your support! © Horikoshi Kouhei/Shueisha, My Hero Academia Production Committee
