When you think about going to a movie or trying to watch a movie on a video distribution service, you probably don’t know what to watch or have too many choices to get lost.
Movie.com updates the project “Masterpieces and Masterpieces Seen by That Person.” Introducing masterpieces and masterpieces recommended by celebrities active in the movie and drama industries. The 7th is Daisuke Sakaguchi, a voice actor who acts as a personality on the radio program “Book Traveler of Mr. Sakaguchi and Mr. Nagimiya.” Please read it together with the 8th installment of Rie Kugimiya.
Mr. Sakaguchi has appeared in many anime works such as “Mobile Suit Victory Gundam,” “Blood Blockade Battlefront,” and “Atashinchi,” as well as dubbing movies. I am in charge of the personality of Mr. Kugimiya, who co-stars in one of his masterpieces such as the anime “Gintama” and the book-themed radio program “Sakaguchi-Kun and Kugimiya-san’s Book Traveler” (nicknamed “Sakugi”). .. It is being broadcast on Radio Osaka every Sunday from midnight (midnight on Monday). It is also being distributed on the official YouTube channel of Animehack (https://www.youtube.com/c/animehack_official) and the official niconico channel. Live streaming is also available once a month (live streaming has a paid part).
“Cucuruz Doan’s Island,” where you can feel the kindness and affection
Please tell us the best movie of your life, Mr. Sakaguchi.
Sakaguchi: Best movie … what is it? I don’t watch many action movies, and I like movies like “Brigsby Bear” and “The Young and Prodigious Spivet” that show the growth drama of the former boy’s hero, but when it comes one of the best movies, It’s hard to decide.
So, if I were to talk about it, I thought that “Gundam” would be a good choice (laughs), and I would like to talk about “Mobile Suit Gundam: Kukurusu Doan no Shima” that I just saw.
How was “Cucuruz Doan’s Island”?
Sakaguchi: I thought that the 15 episodes of “Mobile Suit Gundam” were often reconstructed like that, and I had the image that it was “Gundam” by Mr. Yasuhiko (Yoshikazu). As with Tomino (Yoshiyuki)’s “Gundam,” I was impressed by how people’s potential and kindness were expressed. I wonder if Mr. Tomino puts out such elements in the strictness, but this time “Kukurusu Doan no Shima” is like Mr. Yasuhiko’s kindness and affection. I felt that things were more substantial. Even though it’s “Gundam,” it’s a very kind world. Of course, it’s tough because it depicts war, but even if you draw the same person, Cucuruz Doan, it’s different.
Another annoying story is that the sound director differs between the 15th episode of the TV anime version and this “Cucuruz Doan’s Island.” The excellent director who recorded “Mobile Suit Z Gundam” called Mr. Fujino (Sadayoshi) is being killed, but the SE (* sound effect) used for that is the first Gundam (* the first “Mobile Suit Gundam” It’s a common name). That was a big stab at Ganota (* Gundam nerd) (laughs). The sound of the primary camera is also the same, and I was very grateful that Zaku’s maneuvering sound was “I’m glad to hear this sound when Zaku moves!” I also felt the love of the creators in such places.
“Mobile Suit Gundam Kukurus Doan no Shima” work information
A movie adaptation of the 15th episode “Cucuruz Doan’s Island” from the TV anime “Mobile Suit Gundam” was broadcast in 1979. Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, a character designer and animation director of “Mobile Suit Gundam” who recently worked on “Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN,” wrote a legendary episode that was not included in the re-edited movie version of the TV series—newly visualized as a director. Characters and mechanics familiar to fans, such as Amuro Ray, the main character of “Mobile Suit Gundam,” friends of the boarding White Base, and RX-78-02 Gundam driven by Amuro, are drawn with the latest animation.
Probably the most watched movie in my life, “Char’s Counterattack.”
Please tell us the recommended work in the “Gundam” movie.
Sakaguchi: That’s right … Basically, it is told in one historical line, so I would like you to see it all if possible, but for the time being, you should know the theater trilogy of First Gundam and “Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack.” I think. I like First Gundam better than the TV series, but I wonder if the theater trilogy is better for those who see it for the first time.
I like “Char’s Counterattack,” and I think it’s probably the most watched movie in my life. I usually don’t look back at the film, but I’ve watched “Char’s Counterattack” as much as a fool (laughs).
What do you find most appealing about “Char’s Counterattack”?
Sakaguchi: Anyway, the story is interesting, and the mobile suit battle is also excellent, but when it comes to what’s appealing, Mr. Tomino, who doesn’t seem to like that person, gets angry when he says this (laughs). I’m surprised to see people’s potential; they show me miracles.
Mr. Tomino is not a person who draws things neatly in work, and although it may be tragic that the story that “Char’s Counterattack” is not possible for people is developed, it is possible for people in the end. Show sex. There is also the feeling that I’m going to do something occult like this, but it makes me feel like I’ve seen something better than that. For me, this one will continue to be “good work.” …… Is it okay to talk about this in a movie interview? I feel like I ended up just exposing the otaku (laughs).
“Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack” work information
The first utterly original movie version of the Gundam series. It depicts the final battle between Amuro Ray and his nemesis Char Aznable, which continues from the first series, “Mobile Suit Gundam.” Char, who returned to the front stage of history as the commander of the Neo Zeon Army in Universal Century 0093, tries to drop the asteroid Axis to the earth to rectify the human race that continues to pollute the global environment. Amuro rides on his new mobile suit, ν (New) Gundam, and fights to thwart Char’s plot.
Rie Kugimiya, who loves books, reads a book in her daily life.
I was grateful for the perfect story. Finally, please tell us about the “Sakaguchi-Kun and Nagimiya-san’s Book Traveler” radio program.
Sakaguchi: This program started hoping we could have fun with each other’s book lovers, Kugimiya (* Kugimiya-san’s nickname). As the program name “Book Traveler” suggests, we are talking about books as the main story, but we deliver loosely with a stance that we should have fun.
There are many books that I would like everyone to read, and I am happy to be able to introduce them to the program. I have expanded my knowledge through reading, so the fun and depth of it seem to be great, but even if a task becomes the essence of everyday life or helps in life. I’m wondering if it’s okay. Well, I’ve always wanted to share what I read and enjoyed, so this show is a lot of fun. I think that many movie lovers also like reading. Please listen to the program once if you want.
