With the long-awaited movie Orange -Future- coming out on November 18, Manga.Tokyo managed to get some exciting and inspiring comments from the voice cast members to all orange fans!
Official Comment from Kana Hanzawa (as Naho Takamiya)
With the brand-new episode added, I’m even more fascinated by Suwa’s attractiveness. I was also glad that Naho, the mother, has some additional lines. The time I have spent with Naho through this work will definitely be a precious memory I will keep forever. I’m sure you will once again fully enjoy Orange‘s world in this movie.
Official Comment from Seiichiro Yamashita (as Kakeru Naruse)
I’m very honored and happy that the TV anime I was involved in finally became a movie. This movie adaptation must have been due largely to the people’s support and I was actually both excited and concerned at the time I heard about this.
Since there was some time between my voice recording sessions, I had the chance to face the work as well as my character, Kakeru, all over again. The movie is depicted from Suwa’s perspective, so I’m waiting for the fans to make new discoveries and find new messages.
Makoto Furukawa (as Hiroto Suwa)
The story illustrates each of the six characters’ future. I was really delighted to play Suwa, the truly kind-hearted boy, in both the TV anime series and the movie. It was a great experience for me to share his struggles as well as his strength. Please see what kind of future is awaiting each of the characters in the movie.
Natsumi Takamori (as Azusa Murasaka)
I was really pleased to have the chance to voice-act a grown-up Azu. In this movie, I could deeply feel the grown-up characters’ new hardships and hopes that I couldn’t learn from the TV series. Please stay tuned for another orange!
Rika Kinugawa (as Takako Chino)
Unlike the TV anime series, the movie is embedded with a completely new episode, extra to the original comic series. I was deeply touched when I saw each character’s emotions that are portrayed from Suwa’s point of view. I’m pretty sure that the movie will resolve any questions you may have, so please come visit the movie theater. Oh, and just for your information, I shed tears just within the first five minutes.
Kazuyuki Okitsu (as Saku Hagita)
Thank you very much for waiting! The movie will finally come out, breaking its silence. Although we can’t see Hagita in the poster, he will surely make a big impact on the screen! Maybe! No, if he goes too wild, he would get his glasses broken by Azu…what should he do…? Well, anyway, please stay tuned!!
