This book is the first collection of essays written by a 47-year-old analog voice actor, who has appeared in many popular titles but remains a mystery without even running SNS. It contains the "Work Theory" of the active voice actor, so it is something that young voice actors should read to learn something about life. "Voice Actor" is now becoming a profession that is attracting attention from non-anime fans. But the author who stepped into this world 26 years ago and seems to have a brilliant career, had gone through an urban legend of a colorful and cruel world. It also includes his personal history of a boy who was born and raised in a rice shop in Aichi prefecture and decided to become a voice actor. Please take a look at the "real voice" that is spelled for the first time at the milestone of the 25th anniversary of his debut. "47-sai, Madamada Bouya (47 years old, but still a boy)" will be released at each bookstore on October 28. E-books will also be delivered on the same day. ◆ Bibliographic information "47 years old, but still a boy" ◆ Synopsis Doesn't matter how old they are, men are always boys. I love games and records, and stay up till night watching Youtube and drinking. After repeating "Just 5 more minutes" 5 times, I leave the futon and go to the studio. What is the reason for a popular voice actor who has never done SNS and never revealed his true intentions now struggles with the manuscript in between schedules? In addition to "The Cry of Sakurai Takahiro" serialized in "Role Playing Glasses" the magazine "Da Vinci", "hm3", and others, "Shippitsu Shuzai (Coverage in Writing)" that was conducted in Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture, for this book is also included!

About 40% of the age group were teens, about 25% were in their 20s, and about 20% in their 30s. ■ Reliable characters are ranked high! 1st place 1st place goes to Tomioka Giyuu from "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" with an approval rating of about 11%, ranked up from 3rd place last year. The passionate performance even with few lines attracted many fans, "He is a quiet person who doesn't talk much, but he is kind, cares about his friends and all that is really nice.", and "You can feel burning passion even in the calm voice, which is perfect matches to Giyuu-san." Memorable lines are another reason for the popularity, "His powerful words stole my heart, 'Don't let others control your life and death!'"

The appearance of 2nd-year student who works hard until 3rd-year is really strong and cool.", and "Although he is usually easygoing, he is passionate more than anyone else about baseball and can inspire people around. Sakurai-san's acting makes it even more attractive, like acting of secretly showing expectations for the main character." ■ Let's introduce other comments! For Arataka Reigen from"Mob Psycho 100", "It is a strange and shady character, but the difference is beautifully expressed and I was overwhelmed."

Sakurai Takahiro as Osomatsu and Kamiya Hiroshi as Choromatsu both appeared in the jacket of each character's color, and have a special talk prior to the finale episode. TV anime "Mr. Osomatsu" season 3 that started broadcast in October 2020 has ended in episode 25 on March 29. The first topic is the most impressive episode. The episode that Sakurai recommended is episode 17 "Imoni". It was supposed to be a story about them cooking the thick potato, but they ended up becoming a thick potato in the end. Toward Sakurai-san comment of "I love how I get the feeling of Osomatsu from this", Kamiya-san retorted "There is no scarier story than that". The chosen episode of Kamiya is episode 15 "Cosplaymatsu". The reason is because of the pitiful appearance of Osomatsu Oji-san acted by Sakurai and the Quintuplets that is role-playing as children. Sakurai mentioned that this is an episode that got people saying "This is an accomplished by all the team members on the field". The next corner is "Osomatsu's Case Files". The true worth of Mr. Osomatsu" is the comedy, but season 3 contains a lot of episodes involving Osomatsu and Choromatsu. Episode 18 "Just Don't", episode 15 "Cosplaymatsu", episode 23 "Friend", and others were chosen by the audiences as the "This is a case!" and popular episodes as most of it is featured Choromatsu being teased.

After that, the corner "Oekaki Senshuukken (The best drawer)" featuring Sakurai and Kamiya drawing their own character was held. Within the time limit of 1 minute, Sakurai had revealed "F6 Osomatsu" while Kamiya had revealed Choromatsu. Their illustration was praised by the audiences, and after both of them signed on the illustration, it will be used as a lottery prize among the Mr. Osomatsu fan-club members. The last corner is the talk on the final episode after reviewing the past "Mr. Osomatsu", such as season 1, season 2, and the film.

The first key visual has been released from "Record of Ragnarok", which will be adapted into a TV anime in 2021. At the same time, additional cast members including Saito Souma, Sakurai Takahiro, and Suwabe Junichi were revealed. This work is an anime project of "Record of Ragnarok" written by Azichika, original story by Umemura Shinya, and composition by Fukui Takumi, which has been serialized in "Monthly Comic Zenon" since 2018. The representatives of gods from all over the world vs. the human representatives will play a one-on-one "Taiman" game (versus match) of 13 against each other for the survival of humanity. In the first key visual, three representatives of gods and three representatives of humanity are facing each other, representing a scene where a heated battle is about to begin. Additional cast members and character visuals have also been announced. Adam will be played by Saito Souma, Sasaki Kojiro by Yamaji Kazuhiro, Poseidon by Sakurai Takahiro, Hermes by Suwabe Junichi, Heimdall by Nozuyama Yukihiro, Odin by Hayama Shou, Shiva by Suzuki Tatsuhisa, Aphrodite by Tanaka Rie, Loki by Matsuoka Yoshitsugu, Ares by Tadokoro Hinata, Huginn by Nakano Taisuke, and Muninn by Yamaguchi Tomohiro. Cast comments have also arrived from each cast member. In addition, the ED theme will be "Inevitable" by Shimajii. Along with the release of the song information, the artist's comments have also arrived. Saito Souma (Adam) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? It's a very passionate and magnificent story, and I felt its extraordinary energy. I started reading it at the time of the audition, but I was so hooked that I read it all at once. Every battle has its own drama, and even when you think it's settled, it's not over yet. I love how the story changes rapidly with each page. The characters who haven't fought yet are all fascinating, and as a reader, I'm looking forward to reading more! Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? At first glance, it is difficult to understand what Adam is thinking, and he seems to be a dullard, but I think he is actually a person with deep and warm affection. He has very few lines, so I hope you can feel his subtleties even in those lines. Speaking of "Record of Ragnarok", the most impressive part is the tremendous battle scenes. I'm looking forward to seeing the physical battle with Zeus! Yamaji Kazuhiro (as Sasaki Kojiro) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? God versus man! What a psychedelic theme (although many people may be too old to understand what it is). And why is "Sasaki Kojiro" here? Well, this old man never ceases to amaze me. Q2: What do you think of the character you are playing and how enthusiastic are you about the role? I'm so grateful to have found this role! Long live Kojiro. Sakurai Takahiro (Poseidon) Q1: What do you think of this anime? I thought it was a very interesting work with a uniquely Japanese approach that is not bound by the image of God. The match-ups between gods and humans are austere, and the way the victories and defeats are portrayed is amazing, and the drama of the characters through their struggles is exciting! Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? He is an arrogant, painfully cold character. Poseidon is the ruthless embodiment of the idea that gods are gods, with dark, murderous eyes. I want to do my best to express his overwhelming power. Suwabe Junichi (Hermes) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? A titanic battle between various gods from all over the world, ancient and modern, and humans who have left their names as the strongest in history. I thought it was a work with a very high level of passion. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? Hermes is a Greek mythological god who is known as a trickster. In this film, he is also a very mysterious and elusive being. As a piece of the story, I would like to contribute to the excitement of the work. Nozuyama Yukihiro (Heimdall) Q1: What do you think of this anime? Just from the title and synopsis, I couldn't stop being excited! I was drawn in more and more by the characters who appeared one after another, representing gods and humanity. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? Heimdall plays the role of a play-by-play man, but at the same time, he himself genuinely enjoys watching the battles. I want to do my best to bring you a passionate confrontation between gods and mankind! Hayama Shou (Odin) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? The situation where heroes from all eras and mythologies come together is exciting. I think it's a work that gives you a sense of realism and excitement because of its large range of ridiculousness. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? I had the impression that he was strong and dignified. If you have read the original story, you know that he is a quiet character. I poured my heart and soul into how to bring out Odin's character in the few lines I had to say. Suzuki Tatsuhisa (Shiva) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? Since this is a tie-up between gods and humans, I thought it was a work with a lot of layers of feelings. I also thought that this work would be energizing to read, because each person has a strong character and all of them have a high level of passion. When I was cast, my heart leapt with joy because I could understand the passion of the characters because I had read them. Q2: What is your impression of the character you are going to play and how do you feel about the role? He is belligerent and has a personality like split bamboo. At the moment, I try to think in my mind that I'm going to blow everyone away (laughs). I don't want to lose to anyone in regards to enthusiasm. Tanaka Rie (Aphrodite) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? Once every 1000 years, all the gods of the world gather together and hold a parliamentary meeting to decide whether or not to annihilate the human race. The majority vote decides to annihilate the human race, but Brunnhilde puts up a fight, and at her suggestion, a tie-up between humanity and the gods is decided. The tiebreaker is a game of 13 rounds, and if you win 7 rounds, you can postpone the annihilation of humanity until the next congress, but if you lose, you will be annihilated. The human side is Ryofu, the strongest of the Three Kingdoms, and the god side is Thor from Norse mythology. If you like history or mythology, I recommend it because you will see many famous people from those areas. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how enthusiastic are you about the role? Aphrodite is just a fascinating person. She is the goddess of beauty in Greek mythology. Her breasts are so big that she can't support herself, so when I saw her being supported by a support person, I honestly found it amusing and laughed. I would like to play her in such a way that viewers will find her attractive. Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (as Loki) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? A battle between gods and humans is too reckless to be considered normal. However, I found it very interesting that the great people and heroes of the past sometimes had powers that rivaled the gods. The battles are also very powerful, and it makes you sit on the edge of your seat. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? I think Loki is described in mythology as a very crooked person, but I don't know what he is really thinking. Is he just having fun or is there really something else going on? I played up the creepiness of this character. Tadokoro Hinata (Ares) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? It's an intense battle manga that every man would love! It's a battle that seems reckless if you only look at the words, Gods vs. humans. But as the story progresses, it makes you wonder if humans can win too! Once you read it, you won't be able to stop! Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? I played the role of Ares, the god of war. I went into the scene with a lot of ideas about how to play the role, but the sound director, Ebina-san, told me to be more muscular and brainy, so I just recorded it as a muscular idiot who sees things straight (lol). But in a sense, it was difficult to bring out the emotions of such a pure character. Nakano Taisuke (as Huginn) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? It's bloody and exciting. When we live, we are often overwhelmed by unreasonable things, but the human beings who stand up to the gods all push us forward. Don't lose, don't give up. The power to live and the power to resist becomes a tremendous heat that runs through the bodies of the readers and viewers. I think this work is full of hope. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? My impression of Huginn is that he is, as the old saying goes, "Somewhat unlikeable. Yamaguchi-san, who plays the role of Muninn, and I discussed to what extent he is a "bird" and to what extent he is a supernatural being as we created the role. Although he stands proudly on Odin's shoulders, he reacts honestly to the horror of the gods and the power of human beings. I was conscious of expressing the back and forth between the big attitude and the small balls of the body as a bird. Yamaguchi Tomohiro (Muninn) Q1: What is your impression of this anime? I read the original story when I received the offer, and before I knew it, I had read through the latest volume. The battle scenes where the souls of gods and humans collide are very cool, and I can't wait to see the characters full of individuality in the animation. Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how do you feel about the role? I thought she was really cute! I'm part of a pair of ravens accompanying Lord Odin, and I got to speak instead of Odin! LOL! Although I am one part of a pair of ravens, I hope I can play my role in a way that brings out the charm of Muninn, who is different from Huginn, emotionally rich and somehow lovable. Comment from Shimajii My name is Shimajii, and I'm in charge of the ending theme. Thank you very much. It was impossible for me not to be moved by "Gods vs. humanity", and I was captivated by it. I wrote the song based on the image of Adam, my favorite character, and my ally, the Nanahoshi Orchestra, participated in the arrangement. Both the anime and the song are "inevitable" for your viewing pleasure. (C) Ajitika, Umemura Shinya, Fukui Takumi/Core Mix, Record of Ragnarok Production Committee
