>Kana Hanazawa Stars in Her 1st Live-Action Feature and will also perform the film's theme song
>Voice Actress Kana Hanazawa's official website announced on Friday that she will play the lead role in the live action film Kimi ga Inakucha Dame Nanda (It's Definitely No Good You're Not Here), which will open in theaters in Japan this March. This will be her first leading role in a live-action production.
>Hanazawa is also performing the film's theme song, which has the same name as the film. The song will be her eighth single and her first ballad.
>Tatsuya Murakami, who has handled some of Hanazawa's music videos, will direct the feature and Kenji Kurata is writing the script. Aniplex is distributing the film. The story follows picture book author An (Hanazawa), who falls into a slump after winning a rookie of the year award. She spends her days goofing off with her editor Tomoe and they never get anything done. One day, while she's out looking for her cat Pero, she sees a mysterious message board: "In exchange for bringing back Pero, take the sun from the world. Sound good? An?" She then starts finding more mysterious message boards around town, all in the writing style of her father (Shigemitsu Ogi), a novel author who disappeared when she was young.
So, is this basically gonna be a mystery/suspense movie? Starring HanaKana? I can dig it.
Hell, I'm even interested in the story, this looks promising.
Good for her. It's good that she branches out from her work as a seiyuu. Here's to hoping her Engrish gets better so that Hollywood-senpai notices her.
>KANAHANA KISSING 3D BOYS NOT KISSING YOU hA hA hA
Here's hoping she doesn't suck at acting and the movie is a huge success so she decides to be a full actress and leave anime for good.
Voice acting requires a fuck ton of technical acting, so those who are good at technical acting tend to do very well on screen/stage which primarily relies on emotional acting. Its the main reason why a lot of the best live-action actors in Hollywood suck shit and panic whenever they're doing voice acting.
Long story short, HanaKana will do fine.
Nigga, you best not be talkin' shit about Ken Watanabe.
>implying Tadanobu Asano can't act
Yeah, uh huh...
You obviously don't understand. All actors start out by taking classes in live acting whether its improv, scripted, etc. Technical acting (i.e. voice acting/improv/black-box/etc.) is much more difficult than emotional acting (i.e. live-action movies/stage) since emotional actors are able to benefit off of each other in the scene by building on each of their emotions as well as go at their own pace. Technical acting is much more difficult as technical actors are expected to work on their own in a scene and offset as well.
For example, remember the story of how Ian McKellan cried on the set of The Hobbit? Remember how it was because he was shot separately from the dwarves on a green screen since they were shooting the film in 3D and couldn't used the camera tricks to make him look taller since the 3D camera would ruin the effect, which made him get frustrated saying "This is not why I became an actor!"? That was because it pushed his technical acting abilities to his limits. Notice how there are those pictures of the characters that light up when they're supposed to be talking/when he's supposed to look at them? He had to convincingly act like he was interacting with real people when they weren't even fucking there and act like he was actually inside Bilbo Baggins' house when he never was at all. That can be very mentally taxing for actors with limited technical acting experience and who instead focus more on emotional acting.
Get it now?
You obviously only read the subject of the thread and didn't notice the description of the plot that was posted now did you? Read it again faggot.
