TV anime Fune wo Amu will be broadcast from October 13 on Fuji Television. Today’s first broadcast will start at 25:35 (01:35 Friday morning).
We have managed to get a message from the director Toshimasa Kuroyanagi as well as screenshots from the opening sequence that will feature the song Shiokaze by Taiiku Okazaki.
Message from the director, Toshimasa Kuroyanagi
‘If there is a challenger with passion, I want to be a person who can react to that passion.
People with that in mind get together and rush headlong into their goals together.
I’d like to express those people as something familiar that lies in our daily lives.
This was the first thing I thought about before I took part in this work.
When I first read the original novel, I got a strong urge to begin something.
That’s probably because I have imagined the unflinching advancements of each of the characters including Majime and Nishioka.
I wonder if I can express this feeling in a straightforward way. I want to believe that our featureless everyday lives are not as bad as we think they are. Since I got to the anime production, I’ve been able to work surrounded by passionate colleagues trying their best to make it a great work and I’m really grateful to all of them.
I hope the audience will feel our burning passion through the TV screens. Although there is a long way to go until they manage to complete Daitokai (The Great Passage/大渡海), please keep a close eye on the efforts and struggles of the hardworking characters. Stay tuned for the anime Fune wo Amu!’
