  12.  
  13. [Clapping]
  14.  
  15. Inada: Universe!  Hey guys, I played Harry Ord and my name is...
  16.  
  17. Koyasu: GO HOME, GO HOME, GO HOME.
  18.  
  19. [Laugh]
  20.  
  21. Inada: Hey come on guys! Let me say my name! Don’t tell me to go home!  Anyways, I’m Tetsu Inada and I played Harry Ord.
  22.  
  23. [Booing]
  24.  
  25. Inada: Guys knock it off.
  26.  
  27. Koyama: Moving on.  My name is Tsoyoshi Koyama and I played Phil Ackman.  GO HOME! GO HOME!
  28.  
  29. [Cheer]
  30.  
  31. Koyama: Turn A! Turn A! Ha, I’ll boo myself off stage.
  32.  
  33. Nakanishi: Alrighty then.  I’m Yumiko Nakanishi and I played Poe Aijee.
  34.  
  35. [Cheer]
  36.  
  37. All: STAY! STAY!
  38.  
  39. Nakanishi: Thank you very much!  
  40.  
  41. Koyasu: And finally.  I played Gym Ghingham and my name is Takehito Koyasu.
  42.  
  43. [Cheer]
  44.  
  45. Koyasu: Furthermore, I’ll introduce the host of this episode who keeps the dialogue going!
  46.  
  47. Nakanishi: Yes!
  48.  
  49. Fujitsu: My name is Ryota Fujitsu.  Thank you everyone.
  50.  
  51. All: Thank you!
  52.  
  53. Koyama: This’ll probably be a difficult group to keep it together.
  54.  
  55. Fujitsu: Yeah, this episode’s commentary will be done by people with seemingly really high attack points...
  56.  
  57. Inada: Attack points!?
  58.  
  59. Koyasu: We’re so grateful you’re doing this with us.
  60.  
  61. Koyama: Yeah, this has to be a pretty chaotic group of people.
  62.  
  63. Inada: Yeah, it’ll definitely get out of hand.
  64.  
  65. 1:00
  66. Nakanishi: That’s so true.
  67.  
  68. Koyama: Inada’s so loud.
  69.  
  70. Inada: No way, no way.
  71.  
  72. Koyasu: No, you just have a loud voice.
  73.  
  74. Inada: The two of you don’t have to gang up on me.
  75.  
  76. Fujitsu: Right, let’s get started...or at least I want to get started.
  77.  
  78. All: Okay.
  79.  
  80. Fujitsu: The opening theme is in the background.  So let’s see...Inada-san, I know you’ve been here before for earlier episodes, but...
  81.  
  82. Inada: Yeah.
  83.  
  84. Koyama: Oh, we should just have him go home then.
  85.  
  86. Inada: Wait, no, hold on there.  There’s a lot that someone can gain from re-watching an episode.  So please.  Let me stay.
  87.  
  88. Fujitsu: I wanted to ask about how you guys got your roles, and your first impressions of the characters.
  89.  
  90. Koyasu: How I got the role?  How?  I mean... are we[voice actors] ever let in on how stuff works?
  91.  
  92. Koyama: You mean like, auditions?
  93.  
  94. Nakanishi: Ah....
  95.  
  96. Inada: Like auditions, right?
  97.  
  98. Koyasu: Did you audition?
  99.  
  100. Koyama: Yeah, I auditioned.  It was an audition.
  101.  
  102. Koyasu: Oh, really?
  103.  
  104. Koyama: Oh, so Koyasu-san...were you...
  105.  
  106. Nakanishi: Approached with the role?
  107.  
  108. Koyama: Were you specifically asked to play your role? I knew it!
  109.  
  110. Inada: Of course, Koyasu-san WOULD be asked to play a role!
  111.  
  112. Koyama: I mean, one of the most popular voice actors, it’s no surprise, but…
  113.  
  114. Inada: Yep, number one.  Number one.  
  115.  
  116. Koyama: Inada-kun.  You stopped being humble.
  117.  
  118. 2:00
  119. Inada: It’s been 15 years.  What do you expect?
  120.  
  121. Koyasu: Wow, has it really been 15 years?
  122.  
  123. Inada: Yeah, it has. It’s been 15 years.
  124.  
  125. Koyasu: Oh, so...how did you guys get your roles?  When you auditioned...Do you audition for the roles that you got?
  126.  
  127. Inada: Just to be clear...I auditioned for Phil.
  128.  
  129. Koyama: Oh, I didn’t!  I auditioned for...that fat person! I forget his name though...
  130.  
  131. Inada: Yanny?
  132.  
  133. Koyama: Yanny!
  134. (http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Yanny_Oviess)
  135.  
  136. [Laugh]
  137.  
  138. Koyama: I auditioned for Yanny! I remember now.
  139.  
  140. Nakanishi: Kiri-chan?
  141.  
  142. Inada: Right.  The character Kiri-chan played.
  143. (http://myanimelist.net/people/296/Takuya_Kirimoto)
  144.  
  145. Nakanishi: Oh...I get it.
  146.  
  147. Koyasu: I didn’t know that.
  148.  
  149. Inada: Yep.
  150.  
  151. Nakanishi: I went for Poe and got it.
  152.  
  153. Koyasu: You’re an elite.
  154.  
  155. Nakanishi: What? That’s called an elite?
  156.  
  157. Inada: When you get the role that you wanted.
  158.  
  159. Koyasu: When you get your first choice.
  160.  
  161. Nakanishi: I remember being so nervous though.
  162.  
  163. Koyama: This was my first time voicing in an anime.  Auditions and everything.
  164.  
  165. Inada: Wait, you mean that you’d never worked with anime before?
  166.  
  167. Koyama: Yeah.
  168.  
  169. Inada: Whaaat.
  170.  
  171. Nakanishi: I didn’t know that.
  172.  
  173. Koyama: This was my debut role.
  174.  
  175. Koyasu: What were you before, a salaryman?  
  176.  
  177. Koyama: Salaryman...no way!
  178.  
  179. Nakanishi: Salaryman!
  180.  
  181. [Laugh]
  182.  
  183. Koyama: I mean, come on, just look at me.  Not that I would know anything [about salarymen], because I don’t, but...I was with an agency until then.
  184.  
  185. 3:00
  186. Inada: I never knew.
  187.  
  188. Koyama: Oh! There!
  189.  
  190. Koyasu: So you just fluttered in.
  191.  
  192. Nakanishi: There you are.
  193.  
  194. Koyama: My voice is SO young!
  195.  
  196. Inada: Yeah, it’s almost cute.
  197.  
  198. Koyama: I’m grossed out! I want to redo it! I want to redo everything!
  199.  
  200. Inada: Should we do it now? I mean...it’ll be a super old sounding Harry, but...
  201.  
  202. Nakanishi: I know, right?
  203.  
  204. Inada: Whoa! That’s high-pitched.  Koyama-san, that’s the youngest you’ve ever sounded.
  205.  
  206. Koyama: You’re right though.
  207.  
  208. Koyasu: But like...you had to sound young when you first started out.
  209.  
  210. Nakanishi: I remember you were nervous the first few recordings...
  211.  
  212. Koyama: Of course I was nervous! Isn’t that normal!  It was my anime debut, I couldn’t just be all blerrrggghhh.  That would be so weird!
  213.  
  214. Koyasu: As far as this character goes though...when did you come in?
  215.  
  216. Koyama: I think around episode 4.
  217.  
  218. Koyasu: Episode 4?  Are you sure it’s not episode 3?
  219.  
  220. Koyama: Oh, maybe!
  221.  
  222. Inada: I started on episode 4 so...
  223.  
  224. Koyama: Right, right.
  225.  
  226. Koyasu: Wait.  That means that by this episode you’d been acting a lot for this anime...
  227.  
  228. Koyama: About a year.
  229.  
  230. Inada: But you still sounded all naive!
  231.  
  232. Nakanishi: Definitely.
  233.  
  234. Koyasu: Were you not used to it yet?
  235.  
  236. Koyama: Not at all.  
  237.  
  238. Koyasu: In the studio?
  239.  
  240. Koyama: No way, no way.  
  241.  
  242. Inada: Are you kidding? Just shouting out “Poe,” “Poe”.  You were at the center of the studio.
  243.  
  244. 4:00
  245. Inada: Just calling out people’s names for practice.
  246.  
  247. Koyama: “Poe” is an easy one to practice with!
  248.  
  249. Nakanishi: Thanks.
  250.  
  251. Inada: “Poe!” “Poe!”
  252.  
  253. Koyasu: And you’d be hearing this going on right next to you?
  254.  
  255. Nakanishi: Yeah.  
  256.  
  257. Koyasu: What was that like?
  258.  
  259. Nakanishi: I mean, like...
  260.  
  261. Koyama: It was like “gosh, this dude is so annoying,” right? “Should I tell him to stop?”
  262.  
  263. Nakanishi: No, no, no, no.
  264.  
  265. Koyama: “He should just die!”
  266.  
  267. Nakanishi: There’s no way I’d be that extreme!
  268.  
  269. Fujitsu: Koyama-san, what was your first impression of Phil?
  270.  
  271. Koyama: I mean, I had no idea what was going on.  I was just like “Oh, I’m not the fat guy?”
  272.  
  273. Nakanishi: Oh, because your character changed.
  274.  
  275. Koyama: Right. I was like “Oh, I’m not Yanny?”
  276.  
  277. Fujitsu: As far as your character goes...he rebels, he gets friendly with Poe...it’s a pretty loaded life for your character.
  278.  
  279. Koyama: Right! He did get touchy feely with Poe!
  280.  
  281. Inada: He did.
  282.  
  283. Nakanishi: Yeah, they did.
  284.  
  285. Inada: It’s romantic, really.
  286.  
  287. [Laugh]
  288.  
  289. Nakanishi: It did go like that, huh.
  290.  
  291. Koyama: I mean, that never seeped into our real lives though.
  292.  
  293. Nakanishi: No thanks!
  294.  
  295. Koyama: But in the work, it’s pretty much only that between the two.
  296.  
  297. Inada: Yeah, in the series, the characters are so close.
  298.  
  299. Fujitsu: Nakanishi-san, how did you feel about Poe?  What were your first impressions?
  300.  
  301. 5:00
  302. Nakanishi: Just looking at the pictures, I could sense that she had to be a really strong female.  And at first...I think it was when Phil showed up, I was really shocked when she cried.
  303.  
  304. Inada: She did cry didn’t she?
  305.  
  306. Koyasu: Right.  She cried often, she was called a cry baby.
  307.  
  308. Nakanishi: Yeah, I was a bit shocked when the character had this crybaby nickname in the later half of the series.
  309.  
  310. Inada: But I’ve heard fans say that they were able to relate to her better after she cried.
  311.  
  312. Nakanishi: Yeah.  I’ve heard from Tomino-san, that the character was supposed to die a lot earlier in the series.  
  313.  
  314. Koyama: Seriously!?
  315. Nakanishi: Yeah, it’s true.
  316.  
  317. Koyasu: Wait.  Why are you happy about this!
  318.  
  319. [Laugh]
  320.  
  321. Koyama: No, it’s just I heard this for the first time!  Fifteen years later, I find these things out!
  322.  
  323. Inada: My character too.  Apparently the character dodged a bullet three times, where he was meant to die, and they didn’t kill him off.
  324.  
  325. Koyama: Seriously?!
  326.  
  327. Inada: It’s true.
  328.  
  329. Koyama: Ugh, he should have died!
  330.  
  331. Inada: I wish you didn’t mean it, for my character.
  332.  
  333. Koyama: But why didn’t he die?
  334.  
  335. Inada: Get over it.
  336.  
  337. Nakanishi: Just...based on how the story unfolded, they changed a lot of plans.
  338.  
  339. Koyama: Oh, it worked like that.
  340.  
  341. Inada: When she cried, the character was a lot more likable, so she got a bigger role--is what I heard, at least.
  342.  
  343. Nakanishi: Yeah, in Poe’s case.  I guess the creators were like “Oh man, we made her cry!” That’s what the director said.
  344.  
  345. Inada: Oh, I just heard a really cool guy talking.
  346.  
  347. 6:00
  348. Inada: Yeah, a cool guy’s talking.
  349.  
  350. Koyama: Yeah, it does sound different.
  351.  
  352. Fujitsu: Yeah, a really different kind of voice is speaking.
  353.  
  354. Inada: It’s the voice of the number one voice actor.
  355.  
  356. Koyasu: I mean, this is also 15 years ago though.
  357.  
  358. Koyama: But it’s really not that much different.
  359.  
  360. Nakanishi: Yeah.  
  361.  
  362. Koyasu: You think so?
  363.  
  364. Koyama: Yeah, it’s really not that different.
  365.  
  366. Koyasu: My impression of you back then was that...you did a lot of sharp roles.  Were you doing any other roles then that were so...muscular?
  367.  
  368. Koyasu: It’s not that I hadn’t at all.  But...I think it was one of my first ones.  You know, playing a character that was so macho.
  369.  
  370. Nakanishi: That’s true.  I do recall that you played a lot of thin types...the handsome ones.
  371.  
  372. Koyasu: I heard that initially the character was meant to be much thinner.  
  373.  
  374. Nakanishi: Oh really?
  375.  
  376. Koyasu: And they were like “Yeah, let’s go with Koyasu-san.”  But when they were done designing the character, it came as quite a surprise.
  377.  
  378. Nakanishi: Right, because the character was so muscular...
  379.  
  380. Koyasu: Exactly.  They were like “So this is what we came up with...which is a really thick looking character.  But let’s just roll with it.” That’s what I heard later. Who knows how true that is.
  381.  
  382. Nakanishi: Wow, I had no idea.
  383.  
  384. Fujitsu: So what was your first impression then?
  385.  
  386. 7:00
  387. Koyasu: “What!”
  388.  
  389. [Laugh]
  390.  
  391. Koyasu: “No way! I don’t know if I can do this...”
  392.  
  393. Nakanishi: So it was different from anything else you’d played...
  394.  
  395. Koyasu: It was totally different. I thought that all I’d have to do was mumble.  
  396.  
  397. Inada: Yeah, no way.  You had to be really loud for this character!
  398.  
  399. Koyasu: It was just so...
  400.  
  401. Nakanishi: “Gaaaaaah!”
  402.  
  403. Koyama: You have that famous line though. “Gekkouchou de aru”
  404.  
  405. Koyasu: Oh yeah, that one
  406.  
  407. Inada: It’s in this episode.
  408.  
  409. Koyama: Oh is it this episode?
  410.  
  411. Fujitsu: Episode 49 does have a lot of famous lines by Ghingham packed in.  
  412.  
  413. Nakanishi: I just remember that line “Onooore!” (Why you little...).  It really made an impact.
  414.  
  415. Inada: Right. Because even in the script, it was all drawn out.
  416.  
  417. Nakanishi: Yeah, not just “Onore”.
  418.  
  419. Koyasu: I think that typically, even if the script specifies it, voice actors would read it normally.  I was a little curious though what would happen if I did it the way it was written.
  420.  
  421. [Laugh]
  422.  
  423. Koyasu: And then I was like “Oh, this fits my role.” So I kept it.
  424.  
  425. Koyama: Tomino-san has some really unique scripts.  It always throws you off at first and wonder if it should be read exactly.  And it always works out.
  426.  
  427. 8:00
  428. Koyasu: But you know with “Sasuga Turn X”...
  429.  
  430. All: Turn A no oniisan?
  431.  
  432. Nakanishi: Yeah, that one.
  433.  
  434. Koyasu: Right. There’s like, NO TIME FOR US TO SPEAK.
  435.  
  436. [Laugh]
  437.  
  438. Nakanishi: Really?
  439.  
  440. Koyasu: There’s just no way that you can fit your lines in the pacing!  But then they were like “Oh, but this is such a cool line.  You have to do it” so I’d force myself in.
  441.  
  442. Nakanishi: I see.
  443.  
  444. Koyama: What a forceful genius.
  445.  
  446. Koyasu: I know I’m a genius, but...
  447.  
  448. Nakanishi: Haha, he admitted it.
  449.  
  450. Koyasu: If your line doesn’t fit, it’d get cut, you know?
  451.  
  452. Inada: Right.  It’d be such a shame.
  453.  
  454. Koyasu: It is! So I just remember being really desperate to fit those lines.  And you know, the staff were all so young.
  455.  
  456. Inada: That’s true.
  457.  
  458. Koyasu: I know that Koyama-kun said it earlier, but...there were a lot of people who were trying out anime for the first time.
  459.  
  460. Nakanishi: That’s true, there were a lot of people like that.
  461.  
  462. Inada: It was the first time I got a main role.
  463.  
  464. Koyasu: Right?
  465.  
  466. Inada: Fukuyama too, probably...
  467.  
  468. Koyasu: Just...there were a lot of firsts going on.
  469.  
  470. Nakanishi: And there were a lot of inexperienced people
  471.  
  472. Inada: Now he’s a big time actor so he’s just like “What’s up!”
  473.  
  474. Nakanishi: I know, now he’s such a cool guy.
  475.  
  476. Koyasu: There were just a lot of first timers there, and I had this really crucial role in the series. I was a little insecure at first, because it was such a different role from anything else I’d done, but...
  477.  
  478. 9:00
  479. Koyama: Yeah, this is just “Taihen Gundam” (A-lot-of-effort Gundam)
  480.  
  481. [Laugh]
  482.  
  483. Inada: You used to say that ALL of the time.
  484.  
  485. Koyama: Really? That often?
  486.  
  487. Inada: Yeah, all the time.  TAIHEN GUNDAM
  488.  
  489. Koyama: Wow, I can’t believe I used to do that.  I totally thought I came up with it just now.  I did it all of the time?!
  490.  
  491. [Laugh]
  492.  
  493. Nakanishi: Nothing has changed in the past fifteen years!
  494.  
  495. Inada: It was kind of a hit word.
  496.  
  497. Koyasu: You haven’t changed.  
  498.  
  499. Koyama: Nope, nothing has changed.
  500.  
  501. Nakanishi: Nothing’s changed.
  502.  
  503. Koyama: That’s good.
  504.  
  505. Inada: A youthful Koyama-san is talking in the background.
  506.  
  507. Nakanishi: Yep.
  508.  
  509. Koyama: So true.  Aw, Milan.
  510.  
  511. Fujitsu: I don’t think it was nervousness per se, but how did you feel joining the project much later than everyone else, Koyasu-san?
  512.  
  513. Koyasu: Yeah, I wasn’t nervous, but...when you start working later than everyone else, it’s really hard to know what the mood is like at the studio.  At the very least though, I knew how my character had to act, and I knew that he had to be an overwhelming character.  I just had to beat the shit out of Park.  
  514.  
  515. [Laugh]
  516.  
  517. Koyasu: I just had to make sure that I put her down, again and again.  I had to make sure that she didn’t think she could win against me.  
  518.  
  519. 10:00
  520. Koyasu: I had to traumatize her.  
  521.  
  522. [Laugh]
  523.  
  524. Koyasu: I just knew that I had to be a big presence in the studio.  I had to make it known, that I was impressive.  Just as impressive as the character--otherwise it wouldn’t have worked.  So there was pressure on me to make sure that that side of my work was fulfilled.  
  525.  
  526. Koyama: Wait, were you like that in your first recording?
  527.  
  528. Koyasu: I mean...I couldn’t really say, but I went in with that feeling.  
  529.  
  530. Inada: Yeah, you definitely had an aura.
  531.  
  532. Koyama: Yeah, I mean.  There’s definitely a difference in experience, for sure.  
  533.  
  534. Inada: Yeah, there was an aura.  
  535.  
  536. Koyasu: Man, why do you have to say that while making such a face?
  537.  
  538. Koyama: Yeah man, how could you say that to the person with the aura?
  539.  
  540. Koyasu: We’re the same age.  I won’t stand for this.
  541.  
  542. Nakanishi: Oh, I’m the same age too.
  543.  
  544. All: WHAT! NO WAY!
  545.  
  546. Koyasu: You’re so young though.
  547.  
  548. Nakanishi: Thank you!
  549.  
  550. Koyama: You’re SO young.  
  551.  
  552. Koyasu: You’re so young! You’re so adorable!
  553.  
  554. Koyama: You really haven’t changed at all.
  555.  
  556. Nakanishi: Thank you so so much! But really though, we were all a similar age group too.
  557.  
  558. Koyama: Oh! Kiri-chan was the same age as us too!
  559.  
  560. 11:00
  561. Nakanishi: Right, right!
  562.  
  563. Koyasu: A lot of us were the same age.
  564.  
  565. Nakanishi: Yea, we were all in the same age range.
  566.  
  567. Fujitsu: Were you in your twenties then?
  568.  
  569. Koyama: I don’t know.
  570.  
  571. Koyasu: In your thirties?
  572.  
  573. Inada: Just minus fifteen, you guys.
  574.  
  575. Koyama: I’m 47 now, so...thirty two?
  576.  
  577. Koyasu: Just in your thirties...just starting out.
  578.  
  579. Koyama: You’re right.
  580.  
  581. Nakanishi: “Just starting out”...
  582.  
  583. [Laugh]
  584.  
  585. Inada: I was in my twenties.
  586.  
  587. Koyasu: Inada-kun, we don’t care about your age.
  588.  
  589. Inada: What do you mean you don’t care!
  590.  
  591. Nakanishi: LAUGH
  592.  
  593. Inada: Wait, we’re all talking about age.  Let me get in on this discussion.
  594.  
  595. Koyasu: I mean.  We couldn’t care less, if you were in your forties then.
  596.  
  597. Inada: There’s no way I could have pulled THAT off in my forties!  That youthfulness!
  598.  
  599. Koyasu: I bet you could’ve.  I mean, I’m sure you still felt pressured to be the “cool guy” and act like one back then.
  600.  
  601. Inada: I mean.  I never would have thought that they’d give me my character.    
  602.  
  603. Koyama: Oh, wait.  Was this your first time getting the “cool guy”?
  604.  
  605. Inada: Yeah.  I know that Tsuruoka-san was there when I auditioned for Phil.  And he was just like “Oh dear, WHAT is happening”...
  606.  
  607. Nakanishi: DID HE REALLY?
  608.  
  609. Inada: All I could say was “Yes.”
  610.  
  611. 12:00
  612. Koyasu: But you don’t get those kinds of roles anymore, do you?
  613.  
  614. Inada: This is true.
  615.  
  616. Nakanishi: You get those kind of...muscular types.
  617.  
  618. Koyasu: You kinda get the Gym Ghingham kinds now.
  619.  
  620. Koyama: You’re always howling or shouting in the studio now. Like, your typical role now.
  621.  
  622. Koyasu: I bet it’s because you were so loud towards the end.
  623.  
  624. Inada: Oh, is that why this era began?
  625.  
  626. Koyasu: I bet people started type casting you in that direction, because of that.
  627.  
  628. ALL: UNIVERSE!
  629.  
  630. Inada: “Gekkouchou de aarruuu”  
  631.  
  632. ALL: UNIVERSE!
  633.  
  634. Koyasu: It really is this episode, isn’t it! HA!
  635.  
  636. Koyama: Inada-kun, you kept creeping towards that way!
  637.  
  638. [Laugh]
  639.  
  640. Koyama: Dude, you knew you had to stop, but you still went at it!  
  641.  
  642. Inada: And like, remember when we were recording and Koyasu-san had already been in-studio for HOURS? He was so totally exhausted, and me being the kid that I was, I was just like “UNIVERSE!” at him!
  643.  
  644. Koyasu: I was just like “Ah, stop.”
  645.  
  646. Inada: But I knew that if I didn’t give it my 110%, I would die in this fight.
  647.  
  648. Koyasu: Right, right.
  649.  
  650. Inada: A really tired-looking Koyasu-san was just like “Please...I’ve been here alllll dayyyy.”
  651.  
  652. Nakanishi: Yeah, that last episode seemed like unbelievable work.
  653.  
  654. 13:00
  655. Koyasu: IT WAS unbelievable work!
  656.  
  657. Nakanishi: You were fighting ALL DAY. You and Park were just like “Uwaaaaaaa!” And just arguing the whole time.
  658.  
  659. Koyasu: I had to bring Park to my level though. I just had this mission. And she just wouldn’t shut up about it later.  
  660.  
  661. Nakanishi: Wait, really?
  662.  
  663. Koyasu: She was just like “You’re so awful.  So awful.”
  664.  
  665. [Laugh]
  666.  
  667. Inada: Awful?  
  668.  
  669. Nakanishi: That’s so mean.
  670.  
  671. Koyama: I mean.  This is a robot anime.  Why are they fighting with swords?
  672.  
  673. Inada: But that’s an homage, you know.  
  674.  
  675. Fujitsu: For the first Gundam.  
  676.  
  677. Koyama: Oh, right.  The first Gundam ended like that too.
  678.  
  679. Nakanishi: Ohhhhh.
  680.  
  681. Koyama: But like...who would’ve thought...they’d bring out these authentic Japanese swords for the last battle?
  682.  
  683. [Laugh]
  684.  
  685. Nakanishi: It’s so subtle.
  686.  
  687. Koyama: It’s really remarkable.
  688.  
  689. Nakanishi: Right. Didn’t Ghingham have a chonmage hairstyle?
  690.  
  691. Koyasu: Huh? Oh, right.  Yeah, he had a chonmage hairstyle.   And then underneath that, he had bushy hair.
  692.  
  693. Nakanishi: Very...warrior-esque.
  694.  
  695. Koyasu: Right, right. But like.  Of course, after I was done with this role, I kept getting all these macho-roles. Just endlessly so too.  Like I had one that fought with his nose hairs.
  696.  
  697. [Laugh]
  698.  
  699. Nakanishi: AHHHHH!
  700.  
  701. Koyasu: I still get offers for these big-body characters, but it’s so straining.  
  702. [Laugh]
  703.  
  704. 14:00
  705. Koyama: Yeah, I mean.  We’re at that age now in our lives that...
  706.  
  707. Koyasu: I know, right? We’re so old...
  708.  
  709. Koyama: At 47, it’s like...we don’t have the energy anymore!
  710.  
  711. Inada: But whenever I see Ghingham in video games, these new versions are way more intense.  
  712.  
  713. Koyasu: I think it’s like...what people imagine and their memories have surpassed me.
  714.  
  715. [Laughter]
  716.  
  717. Koyama: It’s intensified!
  718.  
  719. Koyasu: Exactly! I mean, in order for me to keep up with people’s expectations, I’d have to work twice as hard.  And even if I did any of the other Gundam characters...? Like, the ones I’ve done before.  The audience doesn’t even react.
  720.  
  721. [Laughter]
  722.  
  723. Koyasu: And then I do a little bit of Ghingham and they go insane.
  724.  
  725. Koyama: But that’s expected though.
  726.  
  727. Koyasu: I guess, but it’s so interesting.
  728.  
  729. Koyama: All of your lines were SO good
  730.  
  731. Fujitsu: Especially in episodes 49 and 50...your lines are so intense. I think what you had mentioned earlier how (chuckles) the studio was practically a war zone...I think the viewers really picked up on that.
  732.  
  733. [Laugh]
  734.  
  735. Koyama: Ah, did you hear that? The howl!
  736.  
  737. All: DO YOU LOVE DIANNA THAT MUCH!!!!
  738.  
  739. Koyama: “Why you little..!”
  740.  
  741. Inada: Wait...who are you trying to act?
  742.  
  743. 15:00
  744. [Laugh]
  745.  
  746. Koyasu: That’s someone totally different.
  747.  
  748. Inada: Your jaw practically fell off just now.
  749.  
  750. Koyama: It’s so funny
  751.  
  752. Fujitsu: Did the director...did Tomino-san come into the booths and give instructions, or direct?
  753.  
  754. Fujitsu: Hahaha, Koyama-san is laughing.
  755.  
  756. Koyama: Yes...he did come in quite often.  And he’d use his whole body to instruct us too.
  757.  
  758. Fujitsu: Koyama-san, do you have an episode you could share?
  759.  
  760. Koyama: Wait, like...anything I could possibly share?  With the public?
  761.  
  762. [Laugh]
  763.  
  764. Inada: Anything that just barely isn’t crossing the line
  765.  
  766. Koyama: Hmmm.  Something that isn’t too extreme.  Let’s see.  I mean. He was terrifying
  767.  
  768. Koyasu: Terrifying?
  769.  
  770. Koyama: Weren’t you guys scared of him?
  771.  
  772. Inada: Well, I kinda just...watched smiling
  773.  
  774. Koyama: I mean...he’s practically a legend, you know.  Whenever he came in, the air would just get a little...more prickly.  
  775.  
  776. Inada: Why are you snickering, as you say that?
  777.  
  778. Nakanishi: At first it threw me off.
  779.  
  780. Koyama: Right?
  781.  
  782. 16:00
  783. Nakanishi: Directors don’t usually do that, you know?  Come in like that?
  784.  
  785. Inada: Yeah, you’re right.  They don’t really come in.
  786.  
  787. Nakanishi: So I was like “Wait whaaat?” at first. And after the first few times, I got used to it.  But every time he came in, he was just so passionate.  And we just really...his enthusiasm was infectious, and we found ourselves working harder.
  788.  
  789. Fujitsu: Did he say anything to you about Poe?
  790.  
  791. Nakanishi: He did say a few things.  I just remember that...he...he explained to me a little bit about how Phil was almost...using Poe? You know?
  792.  
  793. [Chuckles]
  794.  
  795. Nakanishi: You know, like...he was just being really convenient.  It wasn’t a real romantic investment.  She was being used...and she didn’t know.  So then at the end I was like “Oh, that’s why she didn’t go back home with him to the moon.”
  796.  
  797. Koyama: You finally got it.
  798.  
  799. Nakanishi: Right? Because she’s in the mountains at the end with Sid.
  800.  
  801. Koyama: Right.  That was unexpected
  802.  
  803. Nakanishi: Like.  “Wait.  The mountains!?”
  804.  
  805. Inada: Because there were no signs of that ever before...
  806.  
  807. Nakanishi: No there weren’t.
  808.  
  809. Koyama: It was a shocking ending.
  810.  
  811. 17:00
  812. Nakanishi: Right?  So the director was like “She finally saw through him, and stayed,” and I was like “Gotcha.”
  813.  
  814. Inada: A lot had to happen to her for that kind of ending.
  815.  
  816. Fujitsu: Koyasu-san, did he have any specific instructions for you about how to play Ghingham?
  817.  
  818. Koyasu: Instructions?
  819.  
  820. Fujitsu: Yeah.
  821.  
  822. Koyasu: No.  Not really at all.  Not really anything...from Tomino-san, or Tsuruoka-san.  Nothing.
  823.  
  824. Koyama: So...that was ALL you.
  825.  
  826. Koyasu: Yeah, I mean...Hmmm.  HMMMM.  I guess, you could say that.  Sure.  I don’t remember ever being told to do something differently, or act in any way.
  827.  
  828. Fujitsu: So maybe whatever you did in your first performance fit, so they went with it.
  829.  
  830. Koyasu: Who knows?
  831.  
  832. Koyama: I’m sure that’s how it went. I mean, you were amazing.  
  833.  
  834. Koyasu: Wait, what?
  835.  
  836. Koyama: I mean, I was there.  It really was incredible.
  837.  
  838. 18:00
  839. Inada: Stop. How did it get to this point in the conversation!?
  840.  
  841. Koyama: No idea.  NO idea.  
  842.  
  843. [Laugh]
  844.  
  845. Koyama: But hey guys, that scene is coming up!
  846.  
  847. Koyasu: Ohhhh, that’s why you’re all...I get it now.
  848.  
  849. Inada: Yeah, we’re just boosting your ego.
  850.  
  851. Koyama: That’s the plan.
  852.  
  853. Koyasu: You know.  You really did become a terrible person.
  854.  
  855. Nakanishi: LAUGH
  856.  
  857. Koyasu: I remember you being so much cuter
  858.  
  859. Koyama: Was I?
  860.  
  861. Koyasu: When I first met you, you were so cute! Now that I know you’re my age, it’s just so...ugh. This distance started to grow.
  862.  
  863. Koyama: Honestly though.  It was really...superb.  Like...like we were saying.
  864.  
  865. Inada: Huh?
  866.  
  867. Koyama: Dude, you too?
  868.  
  869. Inada: No, it just...you just switched gears so hard, and...I didn’t know how to respond.  
  870.  
  871. Koyama: But Koyasu-san, you really were terrific. I was watching and remember thinking “This is what it takes to be the most popular, number one voice actor.” He was number one.
  872.  
  873. Koyasu: Stop.  “Number one, number one”.  Just stop!
  874.  
  875. Koyama: Wow, look at Number one go!
  876.  
  877. Inada: You didn’t call him once by his name.
  878.  
  879. Koyasu: I know, he would come up and be like “Wow.  You’re number one.  Number one.”
  880.  
  881. 19:00
  882. Nakanishi: Are you serious!
  883.  
  884. Koyasu: He was SO weird in the studio.
  885.  
  886. Fujitsu: This episode really does reveal Koyama-san’s dark side.
  887.  
  888. Koyama: What do you mean reveal?
  889.  
  890. Koyasu: Let’s reveal more.
  891.  
  892. Nakanishi: Right?
  893.  
  894. Koyasu: I just remember thinking like, “Oh, look at this cute new actor.”
  895.  
  896. Inada: Listen. There’s so much shouting.
  897.  
  898. Koyama: WOW YOU ARE so YOUNG!
  899.  
  900. Inada: I’m young, right?
  901.  
  902. Nakanishi: Adorable.
  903.  
  904. Inada: I was so much better before.
  905.  
  906. Nakanishi: Yeah, you were a lot more of a sweetheart.
  907.  
  908. Inada: I really hadn’t leveled up yet.
  909.  
  910. Koyama: You were a lot lighter then too.  But like...I guess it was just that you had to keep shouting and shouting, rather than be in character.
  911.  
  912. Koyama: Oh, the big brother is up!
  913.  
  914. Inada: The big brother!
  915.  
  916. Fujitsu: Ghingham here is like...even if many people attacked him at once, he was unstoppable
  917.  
  918. Koyama: But it gets so intense!
  919.  
  920. Fujitsu: Really though.  There was no way that man could lose against him.
  921.  
  922. Koyama: Gekkouchou de aru!
  923.  
  924. Koyama: Boom! It happened! (19:50)
  925.  
  926. Nakanishi: He said it!
  927.  
  928. Koyama: Can you do it now?
  929.  
  930. [Laugh]
  931.  
  932. Inada: Wow, are you seriously asking him?
  933.  
  934. Koyama: Please do it.
  935.  
  936. Nakanishi: And on top of that it’s like...here? Now?
  937.  
  938. Koyama: Please do it.
  939.  
  940. Koyasu: No.
  941.  
  942. [laughs]
  943.  
  944. 20:00
  945. Koyasu: And it’s because it hurts my throat
  946.  
  947. Nakanishi: That’s understandable
  948.  
  949. Inada: I mean, it’s the Gekkouchou that comes out during battle.  
  950.  
  951. Koyama: There needs to be a warm up beforehand.
  952.  
  953. Koyasu: I know it’s like...there’s “Gekkouchou,” and there’s “Universe!”. But then there’s the “Rocket punch!” guy
  954.  
  955. Nakanishi: Oh!
  956.  
  957. Koyasu: It’s all in this Gundam.  So it’s so funny
  958.  
  959. Inada: Kawazu-san also struggled with that
  960.  
  961. Koyama: Yeah, his character just became so much more, and like...his roles as an actor too
  962.  
  963. Koyasu: You know it’s inevitable.  It just happens to us.  It becomes this “WHO CAN BE THE LOUDEST” kind of contest
  964.  
  965. Koyama: I’m sure it was like...the end of the series and we all got so hyped up
  966.  
  967. Koyasu: The studio was so heated. You could just feel the energy
  968.  
  969. Nakanishi: We’d start first thing in the morning, too. So if you’re schedule to do a voice over later in the afternoon, like...you really had to calm yourself down in between
  970.  
  971. Inada: Yeah, you couldn’t keep being healthy
  972.  
  973. Koyama: You’re right.  It was early in the morning…
  974.  
  975. Koyama: Oh, there’s that other line too.
  976.  
  977. Koyama: I know it’s supposed to be “Gundam daaa” but it’s all jibberish, like “Gundammyyaaa”
  978.  
  979. 21:00
  980. Koyama: Even Poe
  981.  
  982. Koyasu: Everyone’s so loud
  983.  
  984. Inada: I mean, everyone’s so desperate
  985.  
  986. Inada: Like, look at the detail too! The characters are in their mobile suits, and yet their hairs are blowing in the wind
  987.  
  988. Nakanishi: Totally.  It’s totally blowing in the wind
  989.  
  990. Koyasu: Listen to that! It’s so raspy!
  991.  
  992. Inada: We were just shouting!
  993.  
  994. Koyasu: I know. I just...I lost all my “cool” when I started this Gundam
  995.  
  996. Koyama: Yeah it’s lost
  997.  
  998. Koyasu: Totally lost
  999.  
  1000. Inada: My character was such a reactionary character.  I think all he really ever did was focus on what was happening in front of him, so I wasn’t really directed to do anything.  And this is the result.  And I think that’s pretty much it for us, in this series
  1001.  
  1002. Nakanishi: Yep
  1003.  
  1004. Koyasu: Wait.  Did you do anything else, Koyama-kun?
  1005.  
  1006. Inada: You were here and there
  1007.  
  1008. Koyama: I was inside the spaceship, giving orders
  1009.  
  1010. Koyasu: OH, I remember now
  1011.  
  1012. Koyama: I never really had to raise my voice
  1013.  
  1014. Koyasu: Did you move up ranks?
  1015.  
  1016. Nakanishi: No, he always was a pretty high-ranked...
  1017.  
  1018. Fujitsu: Yeah, pretty high-ranked
  1019.  
  1020. Koyama: Pretty high-ranked.
  1021.  
  1022. Nakanishi: Yeah he’s my superior
  1023.  
  1024. Koyasu: Oh, I never knew that
  1025.  
  1026. Nakanishi: He was Poe’s superior
  1027.  
  1028. 22:00
  1029. Koyama: But I was out at first in my mobile suit
  1030.  
  1031. Nakanishi: Yeah, from time to time, with me
  1032.  
  1033. Koyasu: By the time I started coming in, everything just got so complicated. I had no idea what people did
  1034.  
  1035. Koyama: Oh, right.  
  1036.  
  1037. Inada: Listen.  You’re about to throw up
  1038.  
  1039. Koyama: Oh, what do you know...who is that against? Against Inada?
  1040.  
  1041. Inada: NO! What are you talking about!
  1042.  
  1043. Nakanishi: I didn’t know it was like that
  1044.  
  1045. Inada: No, this is just in the series! Don’t make it so personal
  1046.  
  1047. Koyama: [Laugh]
  1048.  
  1049. Fujitsu: So, that’s it...
  1050.  
  1051. Koyama: Oh, did it end?
  1052.  
  1053. Inada: That was SO FAST.
  1054.  
  1055. Koyama: That was so fast!
  1056.  
  1057. Koyasu: What DID we even talk about!
  1058.  
  1059. Fujitsu: I wanted just one word out of all of you, before we wrap it up.
  1060.  
  1061. Koyasu: This is so awful
  1062.  
  1063. Fujitsu: Koyama-san, what did Turn A mean to you?
  1064.  
  1065. Koyama: I mean...like I said earlier, it’s my debut role.  Let’s see.  It was my first anime, in general.  And I didn’t know how I was supposed to act on site, and what was normal, or anything...I was just thrown in there. I didn’t know what to expect at first, but...
  1066.  
  1067. 23:00
  1068. Koyama: I was so fortunate, that everyone around me was so wonderful and talented. I don’t even know...I’m so grateful that this was my first experience, and...why are you guys sneering!
  1069.  
  1070. Koyasu: Oh, I don’t know.  Is this one of those Setsuji Satou patterns, where you just go on and on until the end?
  1071.  
  1072. Koyama: I was so lucky. Thank you everyone.  So much.
  1073.  
  1074. Fujitsu: What about you, Nakanishi-san? Looking back...
  1075.  
  1076. Nakanishi: Let’s see.  For me, it was the first time I got a major role in an on-going series.  I have a lot of memories.  I learned so much, and it was so much fun!
  1077.  
  1078. Fujitsu: What about you, Koyasu-san?
  1079.  
  1080. Koyasu: Well, acting with everyone was a pleasure, and I learned a lot.  I gained a lot of joy
  1081.  
  1082. Fujitsu: Well, everyone else continued on, but let’s hear what you have to say about “Universe”
  1083.  
  1084. Inada: I get that all of the time.  I mean, people still ask me to say “Universe”.  I’m really honored that I was given such a quotable line
  1085.  
  1086. 24:00
  1087. Fujitsu: Well, this is the end of the commentary for episode 49.  Thank you for listening.
  1088.  
  1089. Koyama: Gekkouchou de aru!
