The anime “One Piece” (every Sunday, from 9:30, am), which is being broadcast on Fuji TV, has reached the milestone of 1000 episodes in the broadcast on the 21st, and only this time the opening song “We are!” It was revealed on the 19th that “will be revived together with the new drawing video.
A monumental tower that arrived 22 years after the start of broadcasting on October 20, 1999. Unlike “Sazae-san,” “Doraemon,” and “Chibi Maruko-chan,” long-lived anime that has serialized the original manga, such as the release of 100 volumes, is extremely rare. Various commemorative projects such as the 1000th episode commemorative visual have been held, but the first opening song with many fans will decorate the commemorative broadcast with the new drawing video.
In addition, Mayumi Tanaka as Luffy, Kazuya Nakai as Zoro, Hiroaki Hirata as Sanji, Akemi Okamura as Nami, Kappei Yamaguchi as Usopp, and Otani as Chopper have walked a long and long history of 1000 episodes together. Ten voice actors, including Ikue, Yuriko Yamaguchi as Robin, Kazuki Yao as Frankie, Cho as Brooke, and Katsutoshi Takaragame as Jinbe, gave us their thoughts on a special blessing and 1000 episodes.
Mayumi Tanaka (role of Monkey D. Luffy) “I’m grateful that you’ve been watching 1000 episodes for such a long time. I don’t think I had imagined it. Recently, I heard from a friend that a child in elementary school was trying hard to copy the cover of a comic. That means that he wasn’t born when he started. It’s so tiny. I think it’s fantastic to be loved by children. I don’t know how many years it will be, but I want to live and go to the final episode. Thank you to Oda and all the viewers. “
Kazuya Nakai (role of Zoro) It’s natural for Professor Oda to draw an exciting story. Still, it’s natural that someone’s hard work was made as if the teacher had drawn a story supported by his family in a book. Animation is a collaborative work of a large number of people. It is a miracle that every one of us has been working hard and doing it for a long time. I’m just grateful to everyone who chose the dress from the list and witnessed the miracle together. Thank you! “
Akemi Okamura (role of Nami) “Congratulations on episode 1000! I started from episode 1, but thanks to everyone, I could finally reach episode 1000. Thank you. This is thanks to the staff who support me, the involved staff, and Oda, who has been drawing for such a long time. I was born the same age as Oda. It was perfect!! I would love to see Luffy’s adventure and the happy appearance of Luffy, so I look forward to your continued support! “
Kappei Yamaguchi (Usopp) “Congratulations on 1000 episodes. It’s amazing, 1000 episodes in animation; you’ve been doing it for 22 years. Story. The year of Luffy and Usopp in the story was 17 years old at first, but now it’s 19 years old, so it’s been two years in their time, but we’re one digit different (laughs). ). This excitement hasn’t changed since I started, so I’d like to continue to enjoy “One Piece” with the fans. The staff and the cast are like a family relationship. I want to cherish the bonds and continue to do my best. “
Hiroaki Hirata (role of Sanji) “Congratulations on episode 1000. It seems to be very long, it seems to be in a blink of an eye, but it was a long time. I remember the recording of the story as well as yesterday. I also remember the recording well from point to point, and when I noticed it, it was over 20 years. After 20 years, the situation changed a lot. Nowadays, it’s often not the same as the recording in Corona, but when I look at it again, I think everyone is old (laughs). That means I’m also old. Nakai-kun was at that time. It was cute ~. Thank you to everyone who supported me, and I will continue to do my best. “
Ikue Otani (role of the chopper) “Congratulations! When you first called this program, you played the role of Sanji when you were a child. But once. I was disappointed because I was in that role, so I wondered if I could call him anymore, but I was pleased to be able to have an adventure with him as a chopper. I never thought it would be such a long trip, and it was normal but in a blink of an eye. I am happy to be able to express the two years of Luffy’s strongness. It has already become a part of my daily life. I’m sad to think that it will end someday, but I want to run to the end without ending the excitement. “
Yuriko Yamaguchi (role of Robin) “Congratulations on episode 1000! I’m deeply moved and have been thinking about episode 1000 all the time. Robin was initially told to be as bad as possible. I never imagined that I would be a friend like this. I never imagined that All Sunday at that time would become Robin now! Thinking about that, each character has a magnificent drama, so Mr. Oda is excellent. I think it’s true. You can always sympathize with someone who sees it. Recently, I’ve been rereading comics from volume 1! It’s far from 100 volumes because I’m reading slowly, but I enjoy it with discoveries. If possible, I want it to continue forever, and I don’t want to think about it ending. I want to enjoy the excitement with the fans. I will continue to play each episode with great care. “
Kazuki Yao (Franky) “I’m playing three roles (Jango, Bon Clay, Frankie), so I think I’m probably out in a short time, but Mayumi and Oba I can’t match Mr. (laughs). Frankie came out from episode 233, but I feel that he came out fairly early. It’s hard to come across a work that reaches 1000 episodes. I think it’s nice to be friends with good friends. However, Frankie goes to fix the ship by himself, so everyone wants to fix it if the ship breaks next time (laughs). Listen to everyone’s requests. However, I want to make it the ideal Sunny issue for everyone! Thank you to all the viewers for associating up to 1000 episodes. Recently, we haven’t been able to record together, but the bond is deepening, so we will continue to do so. Please support”
Cho (role of Brooke) “Oda is putting his life into episode 1 and making it with all his heart and soul. I love it so that I can do it—Toei Animation staff and cast members making anime. Fuji TV broadcasts it. And fans all over the world who support each episode. It spreads by connecting 1000 episodes. It’s just a dress. I’m very impressed with how far it will spread. How far will it go? I’m looking forward to seeing how Oda goes from here. “
Katsuhisa Houki (role of Jinbe) “I participated in the role of Gecko Moria at first, and it looked like a hard rock musician, so it would be interesting to shout and finish it. I played with a voice. Then the role of Jinbe was decided, and this time I thought about going with my voice. At that time, I never thought that Jinbe would join the group. “One Piece” is It’s like studying the history of the Warring States period, and I think it’s amazing in Oda’s mind. Like the story, I’m overwhelmed by the ability to create characters. In the world of “One Piece,” There have been many twists and turns to be invited to participate, but I have no regrets in my life. I want to say congratulations on spreading my hands. “
