Fall 2018 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
I already miss the summer. There is something about feeling the sun on your skin and the taste of ice-cream that makes the season a favorite for many.
The wait is nearly over. At last, the newest season of the popular TV anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will air on 5th October. While JoJo fans’ expectations are rising worldwide for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, an advanced screening of the first 2 episodes and a cast talk took place at Lumine 0 in Tokyo. The voice actors of the three main characters, Kensho Ono (Giorno Giovanna), Daiki Yamashita (Narancia Ghirga), and Junya Enoki (Pannacotta Fugo) appeared onstage.
When asked about if he has had a change of heart since the Japan Premiere, Ono replied proudly, ‘Since we started recording, I’m just doing my best to portray Giorno.’ Although he revealed that he has been extremely excited as well as worried for the past month, he showed his confidence in the new season by saying, ‘The series is going to be great. I can’t wait to show it to the fans.’
‘I’m so thrilled because it’s finally kicking off and the fans can watch it soon.’ said Yamashita. He then looked back on his first impression of the season with ‘I really think it’s brilliant and I’m confident that the fans will love the new season.’ He expressed his hope for his Narancia portrayal with ‘I’d like to get closer to him while I’m portraying him.’
Enoki followed with ‘JoJo’s popularity lies in the charming characters and unconventional yet interesting story.’ He then smiled, saying ‘I’m honored to join the world of JoJo as a voice actor.’
Ono agreed with Enoki and spoke confidently, ‘I can play the role of Giorno without worrying about anything because I have a deep trust in not only the other cast members but also the director, staff members, and every team member who is involved in the season.’
Enoki revealed that the cast members have set a rule to get into their roles, which is to go to an Italian restaurant and eat Italian food after each recording session. He said that the rule is to feel as if they were living in Italy. ‘There is another rule regarding the Italian dinner’, Ono added. ‘The cast member who pays the bill is not the most senior member but the person who played the most active role in the recording of that day.’ Enoki said with a smile on his face, ‘We must declare ‘I’ll pay today’ with our hoarse voice caused by portraying intense battle scenes all day long.
Enoki said ‘JoJo’s world is perfectly embodied in the new season. Don’t miss it.’ and Yamashita followed with ‘I’d be happy if the audience can keep on watching the season while enjoying JoJo’s world.’
Ono finished up by enthusiastically declaring ‘The visuals and sound are superb. You’ll definitely have the Golden Experience of JoJo‘s world with the new season!’
