It also features a staff discussion with director Amemiya Akira, screenwriter Hasegawa Keiichi, and animation producer Shida Shunsuke, as well as an interview with heroines Miyamoto Yume (who plays Takarada Rikka) and Wakayama Shion (who plays Minami Yume), which was well received by readers as “an article to read after watching ‘Gridman Universe'”.
Following the sold-out May issue, the June issue of “Megami Magazine” to be released on April 28 will also feature a special feature on “Gridman Universe” with spoilers for the climax of the film in its second volume. It features interviews with director Amemiya, Gridman designer Goto Masayuki, Dynazenon Designer Nonaka Tsuyoshi, and Ueda Reina, who plays Shinjo Akane, as well as new cuts and new mecha, monster, and character artwork.
