To celebrate the completion of the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Compilation Movie, a special premiere screening event with the main cast’s stage greeting was held at Shinjuku Piccadilly.
The cast members that joined the stage were Tasuku Hatanaka, Sayaka Senbongi, Maaya Uchida, Toshiki Masuda, Yuki Kaji, Mamoru Miyano.
Tasuku Hatanaka, the protagonist’s voice actor, showed up in a Santa costume to celebrate Christmas and gave the rest of the cast members special Christmas gifts that were connected to each of their characters. Thanks to the voice cast members’ smooth conversations, the stage greeting turned out to be a heart-warming and vigorous moment for the audience.]
Here are the comments from each of the cast members.
