Summer Wars will broadcast on Japanese TV on 18 August for the Friday Road Show! and has opened a special Yoroshiku Onegaishimaaaaasu website for this occasion.
It is a page that connects the broadcasting with codes, and games, and fun. There are two versions prepared, the ‘practice mode’ and the ‘real mode’. Until the broadcast starts on 18 August, 21:00 (JST) everybody will be on ‘practice mode’ and can press the enter key. While you press the key, Kenji (voiced by Ryunosuke Kamiki) is screaming ‘Yoroshiku Onegaishimaaaasu’ while the phrase is flashing over the screen in Japanese letters.
After the ‘real mode’ starts, it is possible to do other things on the page, like solving a code or deposit an avatar just like they did in the movie. It will also be possible for the viewers to push the enter key when the movie reaches its climax, the countdown stops, and Kenji presses the enter key while screaming his famous phrase. On top of that, there is a campaign where visitors of the page can unlock special smartphone backgrounds if they press the enter button often enough. If you use the site after watching the movie’s broadcast, you even have the chance to win an enter button signed by Kamiki!
