mayoraasei: (Gintama)
[personal profile] mayoraasei
I had to look up what kawaraban (瓦版) meant, which is the Japanese equivalent of a Roman bulletin that's published when a major announcement needs to be made or a major event has occurred.

A couple of weeks ago, Gintama anime stopped updating and went back to re-reuns to allow the manga to progress. Since then, every week at the end of the episode, one actor from the Gintama live action movie is invited to a brief interview. These clips have been pretty hard to find, so I'll post them here, and I'm going to set this post on top until the movie's release date.

Also, if this was the picture they posted of Okada Masaki playing Katsura, I would have been much happier (he looks girly, but Katsura looks girly, so it's all good LOL)




Week 1 - Oguri Shun / Gintoki: YouTube or here | BiliBiliTV
"The atmosphere during the shoot is very nice, you can feel everyone's enjoying themselves. The two of them [Shinpachi and Kagura] are always so high, I get a lot of energy from them."
[While watching themselves do the New Year's dance clip] "What the heck did I just do...I think I must have become an actor all for the sake of this..."
Suda/Shinpachi: "No you didn't."
"It's a work with quite strong contrasts. Sometimes you feel like you're going to finish on a cool note, but it suddenly turns into a joke again. I think that's the most interesting attraction."
小栗桑,現在才開始擔心你的節操已經太晚了……

Week 2 - Hashimoto Kanna / Kagura: BiliBiliTV
"I'm looking forward to the results. I told myself to give it my all and not do anything halfway. The most memorable part about being Kagura? After I shot the nose-picking scene, everyone started applauding. After the director called 'Cut!' everyone just clapped....I think I tried my best."

Week 3 - Nagasawa Masami / Otae: BiliBiliTV
"Tae is a girl with two facets to her personality. I don't know if anyone in real life is as extreme, but she displays a feminine charisma, with both her gentleness and her strength. I've never really done a role that needs making weird faces, but I'm glad I get to do that in Gintama."

Week 4 - Okada Masaki / Katsura: BiliBiliTV
“I’ve always been a big fan of Gintama, and it’s unbelievable that I’m actually in it, so I really must do my best.”
On acting with Oguri Shun, with whom he’s friends (they’ve appeared in HanaKimi and Space Brothers together), “This time the cast and staff are revolving around Oguri-san, and I want to become one of them to support him. At the same time I want to do my best portraying Katsura and enjoy acting together with him.”
(First person to publicly admit they like the original work, good job Masaki! Kid is such a dork on variety programs it's amazing he hasn't been eaten alive yet. Still, he's not quite the same sort of dork as Katsura, so we'll see how that pans out.)

Week 5 - Muro Tsuyoshi / Gengai: Twitter | BiliBiliTV
"When I read the script I was wondering what to do. Should I adjust my acting to reflect the real age of the character? Director Fukuda said just act as my own age. Even though we might get into strife with the fans of the original work. But this is completely not my fault. It's Director Fukuda's fault."
"The one rule that Director Fukuda and I have at heart is that we will seriously be funny. Please be assured everyone, that I will as Gengai be committed to being ridiculous."

Next week - Nakamura Kanzaburo / Gorilla Kondou Isao
