300 fans who gained the right of priority entry by prior application gathered at the Ikebukuro Nishiguchi Park Outdoor Theater Global Ring, and people passing through the park also watched the PR track “Desmy Truck” and the main stage.
At 11 am, the main stage of the countdown event started with a greeting from the host, Tomomi Kawaguchi (Horipro Announcement Office).
When the three speakers appeared on the stage, loud applause was heard from the audience.
Three people greet in order by the introduction of the moderator. Shoma Kai was concerned about the audience who gathered early in the morning, saying, “Are you stuck with Cairo? Don’t catch the cold and keep the cold!”, And commented on Satoru Takahashi, “It was really nice today without rain.” Sakura Yoshiyanagi concluded with a greeting saying, “I’m nervous, but the slightly cloudy weather looks like death note (laughs) and I’d be happy if I could talk a lot.”

Kai says, “I think Death Note THEMUSICAL is a manga original, but it doesn’t seem like a manga in a good way. “It’s a work that feels the reason why society is well maintained, life and death,” said Takahashi, “It is a very attractive work, a work that attracts everyone. Intense psychological warfare and brain warfare are the keywords, and the song is so wonderfully embodied in the song that I want to keep up with it. ”
What is unique about the musical version of Saki Yoshiyanagi? “If there is music, I feel it will be more persuasive. I just want to listen to Mass songs.”
Here, from the Kai I heard next to, he said, “It’s a wonderful comment. You’re only fifteen years old?”
Shoshin Kai has shot the role of Shin Yagami from a total of 2416 applicants. When asked what the role of the audition was, Kai said, “The moment my eagerness came true, I was so full of thoughts that I was filled with my heart. I felt responsible for that night that I had to become a Shinzuki, because it was a popular work all over the world, I thought I had to succeed, and 2415 people couldn’t help but think that it was ridiculous. I think we have to do our best and we will do our best to make it a month that will make you happy. ”
Takahashi said, “I was a big fan watching the 2006 movie version of Death Note. I was eight years old, but longing for L, I always wore jeans at home … A friend told me that he was L (laughs). ” Kai praised Takahashi’s role as “Let’s say, Takahashi is perfect for L. The look is strange, but a very mysterious atmosphere is used for L.”
Yoshiyanagi has starred in Peter Pan since 2017. Regarding the role of the mass this time, “I thought that it was difficult to be honest. I was flying in the sky as a boy for 3 years, so the mass is 180 degrees different role. I feel that I am challenging the role as difficult as ever I just think I’m experiencing a lot of really new things through Mass. ”
Next, the theme of the talk was “rehearsal hall”. When Takahashi revealed that he had been told by Tamaya Kuriyama, “Musicals and plays must not sing songs,” Kai told Eiji Yokota, the role of Ryuk, “We gave Yokota a special lesson in the name of Yokota-juku. It’s really wonderful. ”

Before singing, Satoshi Takahashi sang “Ah” on the stage and checked the condition of the throat. This is the first time that Death Note THE MUSICAL songs have been shown outdoors. After the show on a rare occasion, a big applause came from the venue.

When asked about the enthusiasm for “Death Note THE MUSICAL”, Yoshiyanagi said, “Death Note has been loved in various forms before I was born, and it is a great honor to be a part of the all-new cast. I’m looking forward to seeing the real human beings playing the black parts that humans couldn’t see or the parts I really thought but couldn’t say, and how that message would be transmitted to everyone. “ I am very nervous at the new theater, but I am glad if you can come to see me, ” Takahashi said, “ The directing team, the music team, and the actor team are all fantasy, but there is enthusiasm that we will not end with fantasy, I really want you to think about what happens when you fall into the world. ” Kai says, “I want to play in a very real way. It’s about to start, but I will continue to face the Death Note until the beginning,
I would like to work hard with the whole spirit, so please come and enjoy the live Death Note at the theater. ”
Finally, the main stage ended with a commemorative photo with the audience. [Image 11
