BanG Dream! Is a media mix project based on the manga work of the same name serialized in "Monthly Bushiroad". Ko Nakamura, a novelist who has about 10 years of experience in band activities and writing lyrics, was appointed as the original story draft, and the voice actors in charge of each character actually formed a band and became the character in the live performance. I'm playing a musical instrument.

The catch phrase of the project is " Character and Real Live Link! Next Generation Girls Band Project ".

This work is a sequel to the movie version "BanG Dream! Episode of Roselia I: Promise" released on April 23, and is the final version of the two-part work.

In "I: Promise", it seems that the reason why vocalist Yukina Minato aims to participate in "FUTURE WORLD FES." Was drawn, but in this work, the girls of the band members communicate with each other and grow up. The process of doing so is depicted with a polite psychological depiction.

Actually, I hadn't seen the previous work, and this was my first "BanG Dream!" Experience, but I was surprised at the quality of the live performance in the play. Not only the sound, but also the standing appearance of the performers and a little gesture, etc., are full of various gimmicks that invite the viewer to an overwhelming live experience. Regarding the live scene, it seems that both quality and volume are more powerful than the previous work.

"Roselia" which has evolved further through the previous work

In addition to Roselia members, general director Kodai Kakimoto and director Atsushi Mimura will be on stage as animation production staff.

When asked about the response of the previous work, Director Mimura confessed that he was doing an egosurfing and examining his impressions, saying, "I received a lot of very good responses. Especially, I was surprised at the reaction of'crying'."

Mr. Aiba mentioned that his mother, who lives in Hokkaido, went to the theater and said, "I don't know about local theaters because I live in Tokyo, but apparently there are many people of all ages in the movie theaters in Hokkaido! It seems that he was coming, and my mother was also impressed . "

The next topic is about the main song and the opening video, paying close attention to spoilers.

Mr. Sakuragawa described the shock of seeing the opening video for the first time as "surprise, impression, big spectacle" . Mr. Kudo, who was watching alone, said, "I was deeply moved and gave a high five by myself," and the venue was excited.

Also, regarding the newly added songs, "It's the first time I cried so much only with the melody line" and "The thickness of the sound is wonderful because the chorus is repeated", etc. A voice of praise was popping out.

At the end of the stage greeting, a message was sent to the audience one by one. Mr. Shizaki said, "A movie like the culmination of Roselia. I want you to know and love Roselia more and more through this movie."

Mr. Nakajima said, "I think that it is a movie that you can enjoy every detail because of the discovery that the scene you saw in the previous work is …! I hope you can play the game with this work as a kick." I talked about each feeling.

To conclude, Mr. Aiba said, "" Song I am. ", Where you can feel the growth of each character, is a treasure-like work. I would like to cherish it even more, and I would like many people to watch it . "

This work will be open to the public from 6/25 (Friday).
