Fuji TV’s HP immediately has a key visual for the second phase of ” Kimetsu no Yaiba.”
As reported by “Weekly Women PRIME” on May 18, it was announced that the second phase of the anime “Kimetsu no Yaiba,” “Yukaku Hen,” will be broadcast on the Fuji TV series. Which “killer content” can be expected to have a high audience rating only in the sequel to “Theatrical version” Kimetsu no Yaiba “Infinite Train Edition,” which was released in October 2020 and recorded over 40 billion yen, which is the number one box office revenue in history. You probably wanted to get the station too.
Initially, the first animation period was broadcast from April to September 2019 in the midnight frame of “TOKYO MX,” whose broadcasting area is the metropolitan area. It is said that broadcasting on “TOKYO MX” will continue in the second period, but it seems that Fuji, a critical station that suddenly came in, is “taking over”.
“That’s not the case. In recent years, the main form of animation is to set up a” production committee “and have a sponsor invest in it, but” Kimetsu “is the copyright of the animation company Aniplex and the original. It is a joint production by Shueisha, which owns, and ufotable, a production company. Therefore, Mr. MX did not join or invest in the production committee.
It’s a very legitimate flow that MX and Fuji TV have acquired the right to broadcast in the same way in the second term of this time. “(Editor of an anime magazine)
Modify the original to make it original
As the “Kimetsu” boom grew, Fuji, who was the first to acquire the broadcasting rights for the first period and was “rebroadcasting,” was able to get the second period safely from that cute. However, some fans are worried about the combination of this “Fuji and popular anime.” What do you mean?
“It seems that the” Yarakashi “in” The Promised Neverland “that was broadcast on the same station is still stuck,” said a writer familiar with the anime affairs.
In January 2021, Fuji’s late-night anime frame “Noitamina” aired the second anime of the popular manga “The Promised Neverland,” which was published in the same “Weekly Shonen Jump” as “Kimetsu no Yaiba.” However, Fuji committed an unbearable “taboo” for anime fans.
“Is it because the audience rating did not increase more than I expected, or was it decided to end in the second period from the beginning?
The original was cut and modified significantly to make it into an original story and broadcasted. Since the acute episodes were also scraped off, there were many complaints on the internet.
Only for Fuji, who has such a “criminal record,” “Kimetsu” fans are hoping that the original will be faithfully reproduced, saying, “I’ll ask you, don’t do anything extra.”
What is even more worrisome is “excessive production.” Before the broadcast on September 25, it has been decided that the movie version will be broadcast for the first time on terrestrial broadcasting on “Saturday Premium.” Still, it will be remembered that it will be posted in the same frame on March 4, 2017. Animator,
“Similarly, it’s” Frozen, “which sang” First terrestrial broadcast. “I think it was too much power to broadcast killer content that became a social phenomenon (bitter smile). There was an excessive amount of fanfare such as “Finally broadcast,” but the problem was the end roll after the end of the main story “(above, anime writer)
Speaking of “Frozen,” “Let It Go-as it is-” is widely known, and at the movie theater, a project was born in which all the audience sang. Fuji, who took advantage of this, “modified” the place where the ending theme is sung initially by May J. flows.
“I played the original ending video that interweaves the video posted by Disney-recommended entertainers, announcers of my station, and viewers. It was a mess because it was crowded, and it made a fuss about “Ana snow was ruined.”
It is unusual for other stations to cut the ending due to “scale,” but it is unique to remake it and criticize it. President Chihiro Kameyama at the time said, “I had a sudden feeling,” and I was sick of reflecting on the excessive production (bitter smile) “(above, anime writer)
Constitution of “If it’s not fun.”
Taking advantage of this lesson, it seems that the ending of “Frozen,” which was broadcast on January 3, 2019, by “changing the saddle” on TV Asahi, was safely completed. Viewers were finally able to see the “complete version” on terrestrial broadcasting. “Hmm, Fuji TV’s” constitution, “said an advertising agency salesman.
” If it’s not fun, it’s not TV “is like the slogan of the same station, and there is a tendency for over-directing that seems to be” evil glue “in part because of the” sex “of such a TVman or the thought of being good. It is also true that there is a fact. This time, by taking a right to broadcast “Kimetsu,” it is said that Natsuki Hanae and other voice actors are starting to make a slogan for the same station program and special features. What fans want to see is the carefully crafted work itself. You can naturally earn a viewership just by broadcasting the “natural” “Kimetsu no Yaiba” without floating. “
