【Comment from staff】
●Hiro Kaburaki (Director)
Before starting to produce “91 Days”, I was trying to produce a chaotic love story for soap opera. Well, before that, it was a zombie panic story. But then, something big worked and I found myself producing a work themed “Revenge of the mafia”.
Therefore, I watched and studied various mafia movies and copi… well, got inspired and put all the ideas and opinions of the staff. Finally, we are releasing this as the original work.
I would be ok if the Prohibition Law was adopted as I don’t drink…
I know how it feels not being able to release work-related stress by drinking.
By the way, this anime is quite interesting.
●Taku Kishimoto (Story Editor)
When writing and discussing the script, we have taken only the best and the most powerful plot.
As a result, Avilio is to carry the immeasurable burden of his karma. How does he put an end to this story? What is he going to do with his own life? Just stay tuned!
●Tomohiro Kishi (Animation Editor and Charcter Design)
As this is the original animation, the setting is quite unique, the Prohibition Era. In the expressions and images, I will try my best to depict the complicated relationship and story among the characters such as people of the era, the mafia and the main character as well as the intention to revenge and each person’s feeling and thoughts.
●Shogo Kaida (Music)
I am so excited to be able to participate in such a wonderful work as a composer. Since my childhood, I’ve watched masterpieces of movies produced in the same era that “91 Days” depicts, and it was one of the factors that aspired me to become a composer. I will never forget the great feeling when I got the offer.
Every time the script arrives I read it over and over and got absorbed into the fascinating story. The beautiful and delicate pictures, and precise but bold production. I span emotions into every sound trying to make it as edgy as possible without destroying the story world.
I hope you enjoy the work and get yourself absorbed into the world of “91 Days”.
