Fate/Zero, Naruto Voice Actors to Star as Butlers in Namja Town Attraction
posted on by Amanda Whalen
NAMCO will be unveiling a new permanent attraction, "SECRET SERVoICE," at the Namja Town theme park in Sunshine City, Ikebukuro, on April 14.
Park visitors will be guided around Namja Town by the voices of their very own butlers. The head butler Damian will be voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa, who played Lancer in Fate/Zero, Tamahome in Fushigi Yugi, and Sakamoto in Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto. Damian is an absolute pro at being a butler and knows how to cater to his mistress's every wish, but otherwise his personality is a mystery. He is always accompanied by his mouse, Esa ("food"), who might be a pet or who might be emergency rations.
The character Haruto Sotome will be voiced by Kosuke Toriumi, who played Hajime Saitō in Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, Shunsuke Imaizumi in Yowamushi Pedal, and Kiba Inuzuka in Naruto and Naruto Shippūden. Haruto is very serious and devoted to his mistress, although he's adamant that it's NOT out of any romantic attraction.
The character Enter Poundbag (sic) is a brand-new butler and doesn't have a mistress yet. He is very hot-blooded and determined, and does everything with great gusto... to hide his nerves. He does not have a voice actor yet.
The character Bandai Kashiwagi is assigned to the lady of the house. He is considered "wild" and scary by others, but he has a kind heart. He's lived overseas for so long, he can't even remember how to write his own name in Chinese characters. He also has no voice actor yet.
With the butlers guiding them, park visitors will discover suspicious items around the park and recite spells to resolve various events. Throughout the course of the experience, new feelings may "blossom" between visitors and their butlers. At the end, participants will receive a commemorative picture, shown below.
Namja Town will be conducting a survey about participants' opinions of the ride from April 14 to 23, and the cost of the ride may change accordingly beginning on April 24. For the time being, the ride will cost 1500 yen (USD $14) and will open starting at 12 PM on April 14. Visitors will not be able to use the Namja Town park passports to pay for the ride.
Previous Namja Town attractions have included cat-ear wearing illustrations of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE! characters, Danganronpa gyoza, a Yowamushi Pedal cafe, and a Tiger & Bunny themed menu.
