Full Frontal - Shuuichi Ikeda


I don't know which is funnier... Laughing

A very nice cast list, especially with Ikeda, Toyoguchi, Tomatsu, and Shimono in the mix.

I watched the Gundam Unicorn stage at Gundam Big Expo where they announced the cast. Friends and I were trying to guess who the lead would be but they got newbies. However, they did cast Kakihara and Shimono who were among our guesses.

I wonder if its going to be dubbed in any other languages? Oh well, I guess it doesn't really matter. As long as I can understand it.

My anticipation grows with every article I read about this show.

Would be an impressive feat to get it done along with the Japanese release, but I don't see it happening.

I'm really happy to see Ikeda is involved Very Happy As well as Nagai Ichirou, who has also been in a good handful of Gundam series before. The rest of the cast is mainly young newbies, must be a great opportunity for them to be cast in Gundam. Anime smile

Hmm, I guess it's alright. I thought for a 30th year ani, there be more familiar gundam cast members we'd know like Kamille, Domon, and THE Furuya I thought. Maybe as guests. Cool that Toyoguchi, Kakihara is in it. BUT hey! WE GOT CHAR! Laughing

WOOT for Takagi and Char! Cha!

From the English-language section of the Japanese Unicorn website:
Quote:
This multi-platform "crossover" release will encompass various possibilities such as Blu-ray, DVD, public screenings, online distribution, and overseas releases.

It is interesting that this source mentions overseas releases, as opposed to the 'worldwide' release mentioned elsewhere. One hopes Bandai Visual's press release on the Nikkei website is set to be the more precise account of the release strategy.

I am not familiar with the work of some of these people but I noticed that Ayumi and Tetsuya were in my fave 2008 anime, Xam'd. They also got the voice of Shippuden's Yamato, Rikiya. Add that to the fact that several other seiyuu were already in other Gundam shows, and this sounds like a sweet project. Not real keen on naming a character Full Frontal unless that was for hentai which I feel would be worse.
