On 26 March 2017 at AnimeJapan 2017’s BLUE Stage, the cast of Spring 2017 anime Clockwork Planet came together for a talk show event.
This may seem sudden but the world has been extinct for a long time now.
Earth was reconstructed by a legendary watchmaker, Y, after being destroyed 1000 years ago. Naoto Miura, who can’t keep up in school, meets RyuZU, an automaton that Y left behind, and a genius watchmaker, Marie. When their abilities intertwine, fate’s gears begin to move. A cycle of failure and life extension, the Earth (Clockwork Planet) on the edge of destruction, is repaired in this clockwork fantasy!
Yoshino Nanjo (Naoto Miura)
Ai Kakuma (RyuZU)
Saori Oonishi (Marie Bell Breguet)
Kenichirou Matsuda (Vainney Halter)
Sayaka Senbongi (AnchoR)
Kenichirou Matsuda MCed for the very first time. He seemed very nervous. The cast introduced themselves and then expressed their worry about Matsuda with some heartfelt and funny comments.
The second half the event was a game called ‘Ideal Automaton Championships.’ The cast had drawn a picture of their ideal automaton beforehand, and they were to announce it at the event. However, astonishingly enough, everyone drew the same cat-shaped robot. The plan was to decide the most talented drawing by applause: Sayaka Senbongi ended up being the winner.
