Voice actor/actor Akio Otsuka updated his Twitter on the 6th and wrote his thoughts on the animated movie “THE FIRST SLAM DUNK” (released on December 3rd).

Is a blockbuster work serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump” by Takehiko Inoue? A TV anime was also broadcast from 1993 to 1996. Otsuka said, “I’m in my 30s to early 40s.A generation that is stabbed.”, He explained that he is a fan of the original work and the TV anime series. “It’s hard to accept the change of voice actors.

I will never deny that feeling. She did a great job!” On November 4th, the voice actors for the five members of Shohoku High School, to which the main character, Hanamichi Sakuragi, belongs, were announced for the movie “SLAM DUNK.” PG (point guard) Ryota Miyagi will be played by Sogo Nakamura, SG (shooting guard) Hisashi Mitsui will be played by Jun Kasama, SF (small forward) Kaede Rukawa will be played by Shinichiro Kamio, and Subaru Kimura will play PF (power on) Hanamichi Sakuragi.

And it was told that Kenta Miyake would play the role of C (center) Takenori Akagi, the captain of Shohoku. In the TV anime version, the cast was Ryota Miyagi = Tsubasa Shioya, Kotobuki Mitsui = Ryotaro Okiayu, Kaede Rukawa = Hikaru Midorikawa, Hanamichi Sakuragi = Takeshi Kusao, Takenori Akagi = Kiyoyuki Yanada.

There were also negative voices on the Internet because many fans were deeply attached to the TV version, each of them is active as an active voice actor, and advance sales for the movie had already started. Otsuka has become a representative of the fans’ thoughts, including his feelings. In Otsuka’s tweet, he said, “I was surprised how much I expressed my feelings.”

“But I like Jigen right now,” said another commenter, referring to the fact that Otsuka took over the role of Jigen in “Lupin the Third” from Kiyoshi Kobayashi.
