Nagasawa Masami, Okada Junichi play lead voices in Ghibli’s “Kokurikozaka Kara”




Studio Ghibli has announced its voice cast for its new feature film “Kokurikozaka Kara,” scheduled to open in theaters on July 16. Nagasawa Masami (23) has been cast as the main character, and V6 member Okada Junichi (30) has been cast as the main male character.

 

The movie is the second film directed by Miyazaki Hayao’s son Goro, who debuted with “Gedo Senki” (“Tales from Earthsea”). As reported last year, the movie is adapted from a shoujo manga of the same name by Takahashi Chizuru and Sayama Tetsuro.

The story takes place in 1963 Yokohama, where the Komatsuzaki family runs an old lodging house. Nagasawa will voice Komatsuzaki Umi, the family’s daughter. The film revolves around her everyday life at high school, particularly with another student named Kazama Shun (played by Okada), in whom she takes an interest.

Other characters are being voiced by Fubuki Jun (58), Takeshita Keiko (57), Naito Takashi (55), Kagawa Teruyuki (45), Ishida Yuriko (41), Omori Nao (39), and Kazama Shunsuke (27).

So glad for Okada!!! sdkjflksajdflsad


But I didn't like Tales from earthsea that much, even if it had Okada Junichi as well. I hope this one will be better :)

Gedo Senki was nothing extraordinary as an animated film (far from actually), but Okada Jesus did an excellent job as a seiyuu imo. ♥
Do want!
