Momoiro Clover Z "Revival of 'F'"

こんにちは。ブルマよ。
公開まであと48日!
今日はなんと主題歌を担当して、ゲストとして声の出演も決まった、最強アイドルグループの週末ヒロイン「ももいろクローバーZ」さんからコメントをいただいたわ!

高城)ドラゴンボールは、昔からあるアニメで伝統的というか……うちのお父さんが大好きなの!
毎週、ドラゴンボールのために起きて、また二度寝するということをやっていたから、主題歌を担当すると決まった時に報告したらすごい喜んでて、この上さらに、自分たちがキャラで登場するって聞いたらすごいことになりそう(笑)

佐々木)主題歌やらせていただけるというだけでびっくりだったのに、さらに、自分たちと同じ5色の天使の声ができるというのはびっくりしました。

一同)うん、びっくり

佐々木)出てくるんだよドラゴンボールに!

玉井)私たちのグループ名が“Z”になった時から「ドラゴンボールZ」みたいって思ってて、最初は受け入れがたかった(笑)ですけど、本当に色々なものにドラゴンボールZって出ているのを見て、とてもかっこいいって思ったし、すごく勝手に親近感がわきました。
けど、歴史あるアニメだから主題歌を担当できるなんておもってなかったので、こういう機会があって、新しい映画で主題歌をさせてもらえることになってすごく嬉しいですし、声の出演は全くの予想外で、ずっと残るものなので、宝物になるんじゃないかなって思ってます。

有安)私たちよりも上の世代の方々の方がドラゴンボールのファンが多いと思うのですが、その方々にこれをきっかけに私たちの声や存在を知ってもらえるのがすごく嬉しいので、ドラゴンボールファンのみなさんにうなずいてもらえるような作品をとどけられたらな、と思います!

百田)私 たちとは世代が全然違って、お父さん世代の方々の作品なので、そんなにドラゴンボールのことは詳しくないんですけど、スタッフさんとかその世代の方々が興 奮して語ってくれるんです。それが子供をみてるみたいで、私たちも嬉しいけど、周りの方もそうやって喜んでくれているのがすごく嬉しいです!


Hey there, Bulma here!
48 days until the premiere!

Today we’ve got a comment from the greatest of idol groups, the weekend heroines “Momoiro Clover Z”! Not only are they handling the theme song for the movie, but they’re also set to provide the voices for some guest characters.

Takagi: Dragon Ball’s this legendary anime that’s been around forever…I mean, even my dad loves it!

He used to wake up every week just to watch it and then go right back to sleep, so when he found out we were getting to do the theme song he was ecstatic. I bet he’ll be in seventh heaven when he hears we’re also going to be appearing as characters in the film (laughs).

Sasaki: Just getting to do the main theme was a big surprise, so voicing angels with the same 5 colors as us was an even bigger shock.

Everyone: Yeah, it was shocking.

Sasaki: We’re gonna be in Dragon Ball!

Tamai: When our group name got the “Z” added on, I thought “oh, like Dragon Ball Z”, and I wasn’t too fond of it at first (laughs). But seeing how Dragon Ball Z pops up in so many different places, I started thinking it was actually pretty cool. Now I feel closely connected to it, in a rather self-centered sort of way.

Still, it’s such a historic anime, I never dreamed we’d get to handle the theme song. I’m incredibly thrilled to have this opportunity to do the theme song for a brand-new movie, and getting to voice a character was beyond anything I expected. I’m sure it will be a memory I’ll treasure for the rest of my life.

Ariyasu: While there are probably more Dragon Ball fans in the older generation, it’ll really make me happy for those people to find out about us thanks to this. So here’s hoping we can deliver a product all the Dragon Ball fans will approve of!

Momota: Dragon Ball is a series from our fathers’ generation, so we didn’t know too much about it. But our staff and people like that got real excited and told us all about it. It’s like watching a child: we were happy, but seeing everyone around us so happy too made us even happier!

Dragon Ball Z: “Fukkatsu no ‘F’” (Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F’” is scheduled for release in Japanese theaters on April 18, 2015. It has also been stated by 20th Century Fox that the movie is coming to theaters in Mexico, sometime in April. Unlike the previous film which had an alternative English title (Kami to Kami/Battle of Gods) this film currently does not have a supplementary English title listed on the movie poster. “Revival of ‘F’” will be centered around the revival of Freeza. Toriyama stated that he, “deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal”, and he is writing it, “as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization.” No official information has been released regarding a North American release.

Official “Revival of ‘F'” Blog: 49 Days Remaining

With Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'” coming to Japanese theaters in April, the official Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'” blog was updated with a countdown post hosted by one of the staff members working on the film!

こんにちは。スタッフです。
映画の公開まであと49日!
2015年某日、都内某所……。
『ドラゴンボールZ 復活の「F」』の映画のアフレコが行われておりました。
見たことのある、声優界を代表するスーパーキャストの皆さまたち!
同じ空気を吸うのもおこがましく思えてきます……。
アニメの中心がこの地に!と言わんばかりの大迫力の中、
ブースに入れ替わり立ち代わり、キャストの皆さまが入っていきます。
そしてそのブースから漏れ聞こえる悟空やフリーザたちの声、声、声!
しかも今回は台本がなんと5冊に分かれておりました!
結構なボリュームです!
キャストの皆さまはこの量をさすがの貫禄でこなされておりました!
映画館ではないのにこれだけの迫力と面白さが伝わってくるのだから、劇場の大スクリーンで観たらとんでもないものになることは間違いないのです!
映画の公開まで49日、もう少しだけお待ちくださいませ!


Hello, it’s the staff.

Just 49 days left until the movie debuts!
On a certain day in 2015, at a certain location in Tokyo…

The post-recording for the film Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” was conducted.
The entire super cast, representing the voice acting field, people who need no introduction!  I’m beginning to think that I’m not even worthy to breathe the same air as them…

Amidst this overwhelming atmosphere that seemed to say “this land is the nexus of anime!”, the cast entered the booths one after the other.  And then from out of those booths floated voices, voices, voices…of Goku, Freeza, and all the rest!
What’s more, the script this time was split up into a whopping 5 volumes!

Quite hefty!  But despite the massive volume, the cast still handled it all with as much aplomb as you’d expect.

Even though we weren’t in a movie theater, so much intensity and fun came across. It’ll definitely become something special when seen on the big screen!

Only 49 days to go until the movie’s premiere, so hang in there just a bit longer!

Official “Revival of ‘F'” Blog: 50 Days Remaining

With Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'” coming to Japanese theaters in April, the official Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'” blog was updated with another countdown post hosted by Bulma. This time she lets the voice actor of Piccolo, Toshio Furukawa, lend his thoughts on the upcoming film.

"Revival of 'F'" 50

こんにちは!ブルマよ。
映画公開まであと50日!
今日はピッコロ役の古川登志夫さんからコメントを頂戴したわよ!

今回の劇場版最新作に至るまで、シリーズ、劇場版、ゲームなど、多様なコンテンツが今なお創られ続けられているので、ドラゴンボールは「終わらない作品」という印象がありますね。
そんな息の長い作品は限られますし、そうしたアニメ史に燦然と輝く金字塔的な作品に関われるというのは、僕達声優にとってもすごく嬉しいことです。

今回はフリーザという魅力的な悪役を中心に、様々なキャラクター達それぞれに見せ場があり、原作者・鳥山先生のシナリオならではの作品だと思います。
ドラゴンボールにはたくさん魅力的な悪役が登場しますが、フリーザはとりわけ印象深いキャラクターですね。
究極の悪役です。
そのフリーザが復活するというだけで盛り上がること間違い無しですよね。
今回はピッコロも出番が多く、復活の「“F”urukawa(古川)」という感じで、激しい戦闘シーン、頑張らせていただきました(笑)。

今回の見せ場は「激戦」とチラシに書いてある通りズバリ「バトルシーン!」です。
ドラゴンボールはエンドレスの作品、ドラゴンボールファンの皆さんには、これからもずっとずっと愛し続けて頂きたいと思っています。
ともあれこの劇場版最新作を劇場でお楽しみ下さい!


Hey! Bulma here!
Just 50 days left until the movie debuts!
Today we’ve got a comment from the voice of Piccolo, Toshio Furukawa!

Dragon Ball has this image as a never-ending series: they continue to go on making all kinds of TV shows, movies, games, and other content, right up to this latest film. A series this enduring is pretty rare, and we voice artists are incredibly happy to be involved in such a crowning achievement in anime history.

The scenario for this movie is one I think only original author Toriyama-sensei could have come up with: centered on the charismatic villain Freeza, with lots of different characters getting a chance to show their stuff.

Dragon Ball features many charismatic villains, but out of all of them Freeza was most memorable. He’s the ultimate bad guy. So with him coming back to life, things are definitely going to heat up.

This time Piccolo has a big role too, and I gave the intense fight scenes all I had. It’s the Revival of “F”urukawa (laughs).

The highlights this time are definitely the battle scenes, with “battle” written in wild and crazy letters.

Dragon Ball is an endless series, and I hope all Dragon Ball fans will go on loving it for a long, long time to come. In any case, please enjoy seeing this latest film at the theaters!

"Revival of 'F'" Piccolo 51

こんにちは!ブルマよ!
公開まであと51日!
今日は……え、ピッコロまできてくれたのね!さあピッコロ、映画について話してちょうだい!

なぜ俺が!?
悟飯に言われたから来てみたものの、カウントダウンというものらしいな…
全然分からんが…。

なにぶつぶつ言ってんのよ!ほら、今度はフリーザが復活しちゃうらしいじゃない!
あんたもナメック星で闘ったでしょ?

そうだ。確かにあの時の俺たちでは歯が立たなかった……。
だが今は……

それがそうでもないらしいのよ!
どうやらフリーザは更に強くなってるんですって!
それなのに孫君ときたら、闘うのが楽しみだとか言って、ホント戦闘バカなんだから!

あいつはそういうヤツだ。

しかも今回はフリーザが大勢の手下を連れてくるらしいから、あんたもしっかり闘いなさいよね!

むむ・・・そういう事ならば仕方がない……。


Bulma: Hey! Bulma here!
Just 51 days left until the premiere!
For today…Wow, even Piccolo’s stopped by! Alright Piccolo, tell us about the movie!

Piccolo: Why me!? I came over because Gohan asked me to, but apparently this is some sort of countdown…I don’t get this at all…

Bulma: What are you grumbling about?! Look, Freeza’s coming back to life, right?! Didn’t you fight him on Namek?

Piccolo: That’s right. Certainly back then none of us were any match for him, but these days…

Bulma: It doesn’t look like it will be so easy! They say Freeza’s getting even stronger! But when Son-kun heard about it, he just said it’ll be a fun fight. What a battle-mad idiot!

Piccolo: That’s just who he is.

Bulma: To top it all off, it seems Freeza’s bringing over a huge hoard of minions, so you’d better fight hard too!

Piccolo: Mmm…Well in that case, I guess I have to…

Official “Revival of ‘F'” Blog: 52 Days Remaining

With Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'” coming to Japanese theaters in April, the official Dragon Ball Z: “Revival of ‘F'”blog was updated with another countdown post hosted by Bulma, and this time her husband Vegeta is ready to speak his somewhat egotistical and humorous thoughts regarding Freeza’s return.

"Revival of 'F'"

こんにちは!ブルマよ!
公開まであと52日!
今日は私の旦那、ベジータが来ちゃったわよ!

………。

何よベジータ。そんなところにいないでこっちにきなさいよ。
私がいるからってそんなに緊張しなくていいのよ?

だ・・・だまれ!!

いいから映画のこと話しなさいよ!フリーザが復活しちゃうんだから!

フン、フリーザか。今更あんな奴が復活して何ができるというのだ。
俺の目的はカカロットだけだ、他のヤツの事などどうでもいい。

そうそう、この人相変わらず鍛えてばっかりなの!
最近はビルス様の付き人のウイスさんのところで孫君と修業してるみたいだし、
全くサイヤ人ってどうしてこうなのかしら!
でもフリーザも更に強くなったらしいから、孫君たちと一緒にガツンとやっちゃいなさいよ!

カカロットと一緒に闘うなどご免だな。
どんなに強くなっていようが、あんなヤローはこの俺一人で十分だ!
52日後などと言わずに、今すぐ来やがれ!


Bulma: Hey! Bulma here!
Just 52 days left until the movie’s premiere!
Today my husband Vegeta swung by!

Vegeta: ……………

Bulma: What’s the matter, Vegeta? Don’t stand way over there! I’m here, so what are you so nervous about?

Vegeta: Sh-Shut up!!

Bulma: Look, just talk about the movie! Freeza’s being resurrected, after all!

Vegeta: Hmph, Freeza? What could he possibly do if he were to come back now? My goal is Kakarrot, only Kakarrot! Nobody else matters.

Bulma: Yeah yeah, this guy never changes! He’s always training! I guess lately he’s been training with Son-kun over at Beerus’ attendant Whis’ place… geez, what’s the matter with Saiyans?! But it looks like Freeza’s getting even stronger too, so you and Son-kun better go give him a good thrashing!

Vegeta: I refuse to team up with Kakarrot. No matter how strong Freeza may become, I’m more than enough to handle the likes of him! The heck with 52 days, get over here right now!
