Comment from Uchida Yuma as Nagare Takuma
My name is Uchida Yuma, and I will be voicing Nagare Takuma.
The “Getter Robo Series” is a work with a long history that has lasted for over 45 years.
The fact that it is still being animated after such a long time is proof that the series has been loved for a long time, and I am very moved.
When I was given the role, I felt the size and weight of it, but as always, I will do my best to create the work to the best of my ability.
I will do my best so that many people can enjoy it! Please look forward to “Getter Robo Arc”!
Comment from Mukaino Arimaro as Kamui Shou
I was very happy when I heard about this project.
I immediately read the original comic and became absorbed in the world of the story.
Kamui is a young man with a complicated fate that I could never experience myself.
I was surprised that he was the same age as me.
I was determined to accept and embody his overly harsh upbringing.
While feeling the weight of the history of the Getter Robot series, I think I must meet the expectations that are appropriate for it and deliver it to the fans.
Comment from Sunseki Kazuhiro as Yamagishi Baku
When I heard that I had been chosen for the role, I was so happy that I screamed, and before I knew it, I was pumping my fist to the sky. I was so excited to be a part of the content that I have loved since I was a child. But I also felt the pressure of whether I would be able to inherit the spirit of Getter that my predecessors had passed down to me and deliver a hot time to everyone! I felt a lot of pressure. I also felt a strong desire to live up to the expectations of the fans, as this is a work with a long history. I’m really happy and proud to be involved in this work.
Comment from Uchida Naoya as Jin Hayato
I was one of the “Getter Robo” fans, just like you, so when I heard about this project, I was excited. “I can experience the world of Getter Robo again! I can experience the world of Getter Robo again, and I can play Hayato Kami again!” was how I felt. I can’t contain my excitement at being able to participate in the final work of the now deceased Ishikawa-san’s “Getter Robo Saga”. I’m also looking forward to working with director Kawagoe and the cast and staff again.
