Tatsuya Nagamine (Heartcatch PreCure!)-directed sequel film hits Japanese theaters December 14
The official website for Toei Animation's upcoming 20th Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly announced two additional voice cast, Nana Mizuki (Tsubomi Hanasaki/Cure Blossom in Heartcatch PreCure!) as Chirai and Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki Sakata in Gintama) as Remo. This is the first time for them to join the Dragon Ball anime franchise.
The two original characters for the film are The Frieza Army's' non-combatants, and they join the story as important characters around Broly, who appears as the strongest enemy against Goku and his allies.
"As I read the script, I was so excited like, 'This is Dragon Ball!' When I received this offer, I was so
happy because I had been watching Dragon Ball as my favorite anime since my childhood! I went to
the recording studio with great determination. Chirai is a type of character I have never played before.
I had a strong desire to play this character, so I was really happy when I received a call that I got the
role. The battle scenes are also extremely intense, this is what happens when strong people fight each
other, So impressive! I felt excited all the time (laugh). Again, I felt great pleasure that I could join
this series. In addition to the people who have grown up with Dragon Ball like me, I think new fans
who learn about Dragon Ball with this film for the first time will be immediately thrilled!"
"Dragon Ball is the first important series in my childhood that made me think about the difference between
power and strength. For me, it was like a teacher figure when I had to think of 'What is the meaning of
having power.' Though we have to graduate from it somewhere, I think we can learn so many things even
when reading it again in your adulthood, and each reader can feel various things naturally. I hope that you
go to theaters frankly without much information. I don't think I went to theaters in order to learn and get
something with determination at an ideology level in my childhood. So please go to theaters just to enjoy
