Mobile Suit Gundam

"Mobile Suit Gundam』(Kidosenshi Gundam) is JapanSunriseProductionJapan OfRobot anime.TV series animationAs1979からNagoya TVIt was aired elsewhere.


"Invincible Superman Zambot 3], [Invincible Steel Man Die Turn 3] As the 3rd original work of Sunrise Japan (the 1rd work of the first part of the robot trilogy),Yoshino TominoAs a director,CloverThe mainsponsorWas planned and produced as The first robot type that has a higher target age than beforeJuvenileIt is an animation.Robert A. Heinlein OfSFnovel"Space warriorIt is also said to be a work influenced by[1].

Beyond robot action, the social growth of the protagonist lies at the heart of the story. Also,戦 争A human drama rich in reality and a robotMobile suit"(MS)weaponBy introducing the setting that is treated as a type of1980 eraFrom the beginning to the middle, later ``Real robotIt pioneered a series of robot animation transformations that would be called "things."

In addition, this work will be laterBandaiWill be produced one after another in a way that is related toGundam seriesBecause it is the first work in a group of works called ",First Gundam,First (Gundam)Often referred to as.

Background of the project

Underlying the planning of this work is "Space Battleship YamatoThere was a hit.Sunrise OfEiji YamauraWas the production company of "Yamato" at the timeOffice academyGet data from[2], "Yamato's related business is a business for some enthusiastic fans," said, "If you narrow down to high targets and catch 30 to 40 enthusiastic fans, that is enough. To become a business”[3].. Therefore, this work will be taken in more than junior high school students like "Yamato"[4].

The composition of the work was also conscious of "Yamato", but it became a problem that it was difficult to make a dramatic development as it was and the age of the character became a problem,XNUMX boys driftingInspired bySpace shipThe story was conceived that boys and girls who got into the war would survive and grow while cooperating in the space war.At this point, the protagonists are spacecraft carriers (later)White base) And in a space fighteralienWas set to fight[4][Note 1].

Around that time, the sales performance of the previous two works ("Invincible Superman Zambot 2" and "Invincible Steel Man Daiturn 3") was good, and both Sunrise and the sponsor were relaxed.Taking advantage of that, director Tomino successfully passed the "adult-like" project he wanted to do, keeping it secret to the sponsor.[5][6].

In this way, the original project "Freedom Fighter", Like the previous workMech robotThere was no plan to make it appear.But the sponsorCloverHe said that selling aircraft carrier toys would not be a business, and requested that robots be released as well.Therefore, it is a humanoid mobile weapon that is different from the conventional giant robots.Mobile suit (MS) "was created (for details, see"Mobile suit # background of settingSee).Originally the stage was the universe,Space stationWas planned to be the stage of activity, but since the height of the MS was set to 18 meters, the larger "Space colonyChanged to "(Details are"Side (Gundam series) # Background of setting (Space Colony)See).

The tentative title at this point is "Gunboy(Alternative title: Mobile Steel Gunboy,Space Combat Team Gunboy,Freedom fighter gunboy) (The name "Ganbot" was also devised, but was rejected because it was too robotic).This was the popular American movie "ConvoyFrom "Gamboi, And moreCharles BronsonMade a buzzword on a TV commercial, "Well,MandomFrom the "Freedom" damGundamWas born[7][4].. The final name of this "Gundam" is Takara (currentlyタ カ ラ ト ミ ー) Of the idea[8]..According to Tomino, there is a jinx that says, "The work with the four-letter title with N is a hit."[Source required].

Features of the work

Before this work1970 eraAt that timeSpace Battleship Yamato], [Lupin III], [Nagahama Roman Robot Series"such asteenagerIt was a time when the target age of anime viewers was expanding due to the excitement of animation works targeting a group of people, but in the genre of robot animation, the purchasing class of related products sold by the toy manufacturer that is the sponsor is less than elementary school students Because it was limited, I couldn't get rid of what was called "for children".
However, in this work, due to the favorable sales results of "Zanbot 3" and "Die Turn 3", there was little interference from the sponsor.[9], Between humans with the same enemy and ally戦 争It is now possible to portray a more realistic situation. The style full of realism is created by the animation director and character designer.Yoshikazu YasuhikoSaid that Tomino participated as a storyboardTakahata IsaoDirected work "Alpine girl Heidi''Ask my mother”, said in a dialogue with Tomino, that Tomino himself also said, “Takahata and Miyazaki have had a big influence”.
Realistic weapons
In addition, the robot that appears as described aboveMobile suit",Depictions close to real weaponsIs one of the important attempts of this work. Traditionally, the leading robot is attractive as a toy such as deformation and coalescence.gimmickIt is required by the toy maker that is a sponsor, and Gundam, the protagonist robot of this work, also incorporated the same gadget with the setting of prototype[Note 2].
However, in this work, in addition to setting as an enemy robot,Mass production machineThe concept of "" was added to enhance the militaryism of robot depiction.[Note 3].radarOr disabling radio-guided weaponsMinofsky particlesFictitious particles calledMelee battlePersuasive. In addition, Mobile Suit Gundam does not have an obvious pose after the robot has been united, and it is unique to each robot.DeathblowThe fact that there is no tactic to stop the blows is also one of the features not seen in conventional robot anime.
Characters with depth
The hero'sAmuro RaySuddenly became involved in a war as a civilian boy, and was tasked with fighting as a pilot in a mobile suit. An anime fan at the time accepted the heavy, realistic psychological depiction that he had escaped, but returned to the battlefield from the feeling that he wanted to win the enemy general he met there.
Not only the protagonist, but also the people who supported him, the enemy soldiers, and the people who did not touch the whole plot were carefully drawn. Also, it seems that the federal army on the main character side is not necessarily a monolith,Char Aznable OfRevenge dramaDevelop a drama with a deep mix of elements. The world of works is richer than conventional works.
Newtype concept
One of the important keywords of this work is "Innovation of humanityNew typeIt is.Supernatural powerThe new type that was set up as a person who got a special feeling similar to was initially an idea to make the main character Amuro a superhuman activity, but eventually it was revealed that the nemesis Char is also a new type, And a girl who is also a new type Lala SunThrough the encounter with the three and the tragedy that occurred between the three people, it was sublimated into the abstract theme of what is "innovation of humankind".[Note 4].
As a result, this work will show that it is possible to create a work that can be watched by older people by incorporating space fantasy and philosophy and making stories and settings with a reality without breaking the framework of robot animation. Became.


Character DesignBecame the center of drawing as an animation directorYoshikazu YasuhikoBut,Mechanic designIs mainlyKunio OkawaraWas in charge.

Initially, the project was "Studio coloringRepresentative (at that time)Takachiho HarukaBased on the concept of Heinlein's novel "Starship Troopers" that he recommended to the staff of Sunrise, the plan of Yoshiyuki Tomino, the general director, was also advanced.[12][13]..At that time, Studio Nue often participated in the animation produced by Sunrise, but the design was complicated with many lines and was noisy for SF examination.[12][13][14]..As an animator, it's best to have a simple design, and if you bring too much reason to TV animation, you will lose your freedom, so Yasuhiko, an animation director who was afraid that he would be exhausted from his experience working with Studio Nue. Yoshikazu said, "I would like to place an order in a place other than" Nue "."[12][13][14]..At that time, in addition to Studio Nue, the only mechanical designer in the anime industry was Studio Nue.Tatsunoko ProFromNakamura MitsukiThere was only Design Office Mecaman established by Kunio Okawara[6][14]..In addition, Yasuhiko thought, "If you think about entertainment, it would be better for people from Tatsunoko," so it was decided that Nakamura would participate in art and Ogawara would participate in mechanic design.[Note 5][6][13].


Evaluation at the first broadcast and later social phenomena

At the time of the first broadcastAudience ratingIs 9.1% in the Nagoya area and 5.3% in the Kanto area[15]I didn't shake.

Due to the low audience rating, so-called "damaged mecha" was to be released every time in addition to the mass production type at the request of the sponsor, and the prototype was introduced. Gufu,DomNew MS such asMobile armor(MA) appeared, but the audience rating did not improve[4][Note 6].

Poor viewership leads to poor performance of related products[17], The sponsor pointed out that "I can't have a gloomy character called Char", and left Char in the work, but this time flooded with protest letters saying "Why Char does not come out".[18].. These letters are from junior and senior high school fans, and this work had fans over junior high school students as originally intended by Sunrise.[17].Nagoya TVAccording to him, he was persuading the staff that he was planning to kill instead of shifting to the left and canceled.[19].

After that, the lever insertion was tried, but (Later) The audience rate and sales cannot be recovered, and the schedule of all 52 episodes is shortened to 43 episodesCensoredBecame[Note 7].. During the series, Yoshikazu Yasuhiko left the scene due to illness, and the production staff was exhausted.

However, immediately after the censorship was decided, popularity increased. Amuro was supposed to die in the final episode, but Sekioka objected and canceled because he could expect rebroadcast and sequel production due to the popularity of Sekioka[19].. Also, from the time of broadcastingAnime magazineThe popularity of the junior high and high school students, especially girls, gradually increased due to word-of-mouth communication, such as the frequent creation of enthusiastic feature articles.[Note 8].. The number of broadcasts ended with 43 episodes at the time of the decision to discontinue, but even after the end of the main broadcast the enthusiasm did not decline, such as the petition signature request for rebroadcast by animation fans, and in response to these, Clover decided to rebroadcast.[21].. In this way, re-broadcast and re-broadcast were repeated, and this work spread to the general public. In the rebroadcast, the average audience rating also exceeded 10%, recording 1981% in the Kanto area in 17.9 and 1982% in the Nagoya area in 25.7 (highest audience rating 29.1%).

Six months after the end of broadcastingBandaiThe plastic model of MS released from shows an explosive sales,GunplaWas called (Later). Along with the later release of the movie version, a boom that could be called a social phenomenon was created. After that, follow or share the world view, setting, history, etc. with this workNovel,ComicWas produced in large numbers,Media mixIt is a work that can be said to be the pioneer of.

On the other hand, for the depiction of MS and the existence of new types in the workTakachiho HarukaAs a science fiction writerSF examinationState opinions that criticize from the perspective of[22]Caused the "Gundam SF Controversy"[Note 9].

Evaluation in the history of anime and its influence on subsequent works

The hit of this work brings a new animation boom, and the animation influenced by this will be produced innumerably in the mixture of Tamaishi. In particular, as with this work, robot animation has focused on portraying characters and worldviews, which has led to the creation of works that are conscious of the elderly, and has produced many works.[Note 10].

Commercial circumstances

As mentioned above, Sunrise made this work for junior high school students and above, but there was a concern that sponsors would not gather, soSotsu AgencyExplained to the sponsor that it is for young people[19]..In this way, as with the previous two works "Invincible Superman Zambot 2" and "Invincible Steel Man Daitan 3", each company developed products for elementary school students and younger, causing a mismatch.[21]However, it was not possible to attract junior and senior high school fans, and related products fell into a slump.So at the request of Clover, in September 1979G armorAppeared, and in the same month, the “Gundam DX combination set” that set G Armor and Gundam was released, but it did not lead to an increase in sales[21].

At the beginning of the project, the animation production team had prepared a number of innovative ideas to make this work an epoch-making work.Among them, there was also a setting that broke the conventional wisdom of children's animation that "the coloring of the leading role Gundam is all white".However, from a sponsor source, "The purpose of accepting the sponsorship of TV animation is to commercialize the characters that appear on the TV screen, but the leading robot cannot sell in white. It is common knowledge that children's toys use the three primary colors of red, blue and yellow. . Paint Gundam in red, blue and yellow. "I couldn't ignore the sponsor's intention (or rather a de facto order), so I had no choice but to color the three primary colors of red, blue, and yellow to the extent that I'm sorry.[Note 11]..In addition, Clover, who was opposed to the whiteness of Gundam at the planning stage, interpreted most of the white parts in Gundam as silver, and sold the toys in different colors.

According to Sekioka's testimony of Nagoya TV, the station's position was not enough to discontinue the program, but in the toy industry cycle, demand is expected during the spring break in March after the year-end and New Year holidays, so a new program will be released in February. It is judged that toys will sell at that time and survive the business crisis, and it is presumed that the program will be discontinued by the end of January in order to stimulate transfer demand.[23]..Masao Iizuka of Sunrise said, "We managed to get it broadcast until January, when there are Christmas and New Year's gifts that sell toys."[7]..However, during the year-end sales season, the "DX united set" showed strong sales, and Clover hurriedly asked Sunrise to extend it, but it did not come true.[24].

As mentioned above, the companies that developed related products at the time of the main broadcast failed, but the anime magazine "Animated], and ran the anime shop "Anik"LaportOnly was the first to catch the excitement of anime fans.At the time of the main broadcast, the company had already rolled out products for anime fans to excite the fans.

On the other hand, in order to make up for the poor sales of toys, Sunrise asked Clover to commercialize a plastic model, but it was rejected, saying, "There is no use in increasing the number of non-selling character products." So, with the approval of Clover, Sunrise called on other companies to commercialize the plastic model.[4]..However, the Sotsu agency, which is another copyright source of this work and also the copyright window, is concerned that the sales of clover toys will be adversely affected.AoshimaI asked him to make a plastic model.However, because the discontinuation was decided,Next timeIt was decided to model at, and Gundam's plastic model was refused.Even under such circumstances, Sotsu was selling a model of "Space Battleship Yamato".Bandai modelAfter a long negotiation, the Bandai model acquired the commercialization right at the end of 1979 in the form of Sotsu breaking.[25]..In this way, the plastic model released six months after the end of the broadcast showed explosive sales and helped to expand the popularity of Gundam.Gundam's plastic model has gained great popularityGunplaIt came to be called, and further, "Mobile suit variations, And various settings in them, together with the settings produced in the anime magazine, made it possible to dig deeper into the world view of Gundam. In 1982 the plastic model market reached a record high[26].

For this reason, it is said that "The Gundam boom was ignited by Laport and built by Bandai."[27].. By the time the movie version was released, each company was developing products according to the fan base of this work, but due to the aging of the fans, products other than those for anime fans also began to sell.[21]..In addition, Gunpla and various toys are still very popular, with new items such as the first Gundam and Zaku being released.in recent yearsZaku TofuFancy products such as these have also been released, expanding the fan base.

There are three eye catch patterns.

  • In the first episode, the video is the same as in the second and subsequent episodes, but the sound effects are different.
  • Episodes 2 to 11, 43[Note 20]Is a title logo only, Gundam does not appear.
  • Gundam and the title logo appear in episodes 12 to 42.

In the film adaptation, the following changes were mainly added to each episode.

  • The episode that completes the episode, which does not affect the composition of the entire series, is basically cut.
  • In the TV series, episodes and battles that spanned two times are consolidated into one. The contradiction in the production due to this, such as the weapon that Gundam had in 2th episode, has been corrected as much as possible, but there are some places where the contradiction remains uncorrected, such as the hit position of Char's Zugok in 1th and 9th episodes ..
  • All the reflected parts are not the images of the TV series, and there are some parts that were redrawn for the theater. Especially in the "Meguriai Universe", Yasuhiko Yoshikazu was out of drawing due to illness at the time of the production of the TV version, so new drawing by Yasuhiko is being performed entirely.

The title call is Bright NoahHirotaka SuzuokiWas in charge.

Theatrical version trilogy

Released on January 1980, 10Nikkan Sports"so,"Post Yamato is GundamOf the movie adaptation of this workscoopWas reported[45][46].

One week later on the 1thTsukijiA production press conference was officially held at the restaurant "Escargot" on the top floor of the Toge Building. In addition to Tomino and Yasuhiko, Japan Sunrise and distributorsShochikuIt was a large-scale conference in which several people attended[45][46]In that, Tomino does not want to be a mere re-edition digest version, it is impossible to combine 43 episodes into one movie of two and a half hours, and it has to be several. After receiving the consent of Shochiku, he said he had this story.[47].. Of course, Tomino also said in an interview before the movie was decided that he would like to do it in four parts if it was made into a movie.[48].. However, in reality, the production of the sequel depends on the achievement of the first work, so for the first movie version Tomino's serial number "I" andsubtitleWas not allowed (even by convention)[49].

On February 1, 1981, prior to the release of the first work, two events were held as part of the promotion. In the morningShinjuku Shochiku Kaikan"Gundam Festival" was held with limited number of visitors, and ended with great success[50].. And in the afternoon,Shinjuku AltaIn front (Shinjuku East Station Square)Anime New Century DeclarationWas held. Although it was named "Gundam Campaign for 5000 People", it was actually packed with about 2 fans (1 real people according to the total of each fan club).[51].. Some of the characters in this work and MSCosplay(At that time, it was not popular yet,Fan loadWas called "Tominoko"[52][Note 21]), and some of the fans gave the speech “Anime New Century Declaration” as a representative.CharLalalaCosplayers, who will later be involved in Tomino's work and the sequel to "Gundam".Nagano MamoruKawamura MariaMet[53].. In addition, there was a dangerous situation where arranging by guards and volunteers could not catch up due to mobilization that exceeded expectations and there was a danger that shogi could be defeated, but if Tomino holds the microphone and there is an accident here, the world will say ``After all, animation is It was said that the participants regained their calmness by saying that they would judge it as a fan event, and the event ended successfully.[51].

As a result, the first movie version was a huge hit. In particular, advance tickets showed a tremendous amount of sales, and it was said that they were the key to the realization of the sequel. In the sequel, the procession played an important role as a "festival" where fans could participate.[54].. Eventually, the filmization of the final episode of the TV version was realized with three parts less than the original concept.

It was first made into a DVD in 2000,special editionAs voiceDolby DigitalOriginal cast (excluding some) to make 5.1chDubbingIt was redone,Sound effect,BGM(As an example of the big difference, the staff roll part of the ending of III played "Beginning" in the original version, but "Meguriai" continued to flow in the special version, etc. ). In 2007, "Mobile Suit Gundam Theatrical Version Memorial Box" was re-released as a DVD with original audio, and in 2012, each of the three works was released independently.

Even after that, the movie version was shown in various forms in the turning point of this work. In 30, the 2009th anniversary of the start of television broadcasting, the HD remastered version of the trilogy was released.DLPEntertainment was held at movie theaters in various places from June to July.[55].. In August, as part of the "Mobile Suit Gundam 2019th Anniversary Project", in August, a full orchestra (arranged and conducted by the theater version "Mobile Suit Gundam" Cinema Concert) - Takayuki Hattori / Performance- Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra) Performed a live performance of the music part in the play[56].. Also, the movie version of the Gundam series was screened on a special screen as "Gundam New Experience TOUR", but this trilogy will also be on ULTIRA from September to October.[57], In January 2020DOLBY CINEMAWas screened in[58]。2021年にYouTubeで24時間限定プレミアム配信、1作目は1月23日、2作目は1月30日、3作目は2月6日に配信[59].

Novel version "Mobile Suit Gundam"

Written at the time of airing by Yoshiyuki Tomino, general director of the animation version,Asahi SonoramaPublished by[64]..Regarding the purpose of writing this novel, Tomino was enthusiastic to show his own world in a novel without the request of a toy maker sponsor in later years.[65]I remember.For this reason, the content of this work is completely different from the TV version, especially as the story progresses.[65]It does not match with later works such as "Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam".This method is not an excuse that "I originally wanted to do this" or "I actually intended to do this" at the exhibition "Yoshiyuki Tomino's World" held from 2019.[66], Has a role like re-verification of experimental results[66]Thought experiment[66]It has been criticized.
Commercially, it became a hit selling 2 copies with two books, and at that time there was concern about "book separation" of high school students, but the novel of this work, which is a video work, exerted a synergistic effect and attracted high school students. ..Since this work, visualization has become important in novels for high school students.[67]. In 1987Kadokawa ShotenThe publisher has been changed toKadokawa Bunko"Blue belt" (currently independent from the "green belt" classification of "Contemporary Japanese Literature")Kadokawa sneaker library) Is the first work. Usually, this is the work of a novel. All 1 volumes[68][69][70].. The cover of the Asahi Sonorama version is the 1st volume of Char's set cels, Volumes 2 and 3 are Kunio Okawara, and the text is Yoshinobu Aobachi. Kadokawa version has both cover and illustrationHaruhiko Mikimoto.
The biggest difference from the TV version is that the main character Amuro who was a civilian boy in animation from the beginningProfessional soldier(Mobile suit pilot candidate.Sergeant), andDie in the middle of the storyThat was a big shock to the fans at that time[Note 23].. In addition, Seira has a physical relationship with Amuro and promotes the killing of his brother Char, and the personality and relationships of each character have been significantly modified. Since the story is unfolded in space and the earth is not the stage, the MS that appeared in the animated version of the earth will not appear, and many of the characters who appeared on the earth will not appear. The types of MS/MA themselves are also narrowed down to a very small number, the federal army side is "Gundam" "Gun Cannon" "Jim" "Mr. Ball", the Zeon army is "Zaku" "Rick Dom" "Hermes" Only 4 kinds of "Big Zam" and "Blau Bro" appear. Regarding the depiction of the Union and Zion, the Union is rather criticized as the corruption of bureaucrats is progressing. Finally, the Gundam operation mother shipPegasus JBelow the captain Bright, the surviving crew and Kai Sidden and others carried out a joint struggle with Char who respected Amuro's will, killing Gilen and Xyria in the Side 3 Musm City, and forming the Zeon Republic Bright and others will become post-war Zion soldiers (this settingGillen's AmbitionHas been adopted as "Casval Edition"). Some of the original novel settings, such as Amuro's mother's name, Gillen's secretary and lover Cecilia Eileen, and Hayato's boarding the Guncannon, have been incorporated into later theater versions. Also, Char's exclusive Rick Dom, which appears only in this work, and the successor to the Amuro boarding G-3 Gundam are later used in numerous game works. Also, a new type of female soldier as the original character only for the novel versionCusco AlAppeared. She may also appear in Gundam related games. Meanwhile, Char's subordinate, Leroy Gilliam, who shot down Amuro, is almost ignored. At the time of reprinting from the Kadokawa Bunko, Tomino tried to make it harmonized with "Z Gundam" by cutting the deaths of Amuro and Hayato, but said he gave up because he would deny himself in the past.[71].

"Secret meeting"

In 1997Kadokawa mini libraryThe upper and lower volumes were published from, and they were integrated and added in 2000.Kadokawa sneaker libraryFromSecret Meeting-Amuro and LalalaIt was published again as.
At that time, Kadokawa Shoten asked Tomino to write a novels when launching the mini library.[65]In response to this, Tomino has no print or manga work that traces the story of "Mobile Suit Gundam" from TV.[65]Therefore, I challenged to write a novel that could be called a digest version of the TV and movie version of "First Gundam" itself.[65]There is a background.
Television Animation"Mobile Suit V Gundam』\ Tomino who suffered from physical and mental disorders after production[66], A story that carefully redraws the inside of the anime version of the story while narrowing down the points[66]As for the newtype theory, "the secret meeting may remain a secret meeting".[66]It is the content.

A novel version written by Masaaki Nakane was also released by Asahi Sonorama, but this is a pure novelization and has almost the same content as the TV series.[72][73][74].. Currently out of print.

In 1979, when this work was broadcast,Akita ShotenIssuedFor boysCartoon magazine"Adventure king]Cartoon of this work Yu OkazakiWas serialized by. Differences were seen in many parts due to Okazaki's lack of understanding of the purpose of this work, which became the beginning of real robot animation, and the fact that Okazaki did not have a TV at that time and could not check the original.[Note 24].. In addition, unlike the conventional robot animation that was a one-story completion method, in the comicalization of this work, which is a serial drama, the pace seems to be slower than the TV broadcast, it is not completed, and when the movie is made into a movie It was completed by the comicalization of "Space".

Live action

Live action(Jisha) is originally a live-action film or a live-action film, as it is.article,Expressed inthe filmTo copy it to, etc.Record movieIs a word that refers to.

On the other hand,ア ニ メ ー シ ョ ン,CGSuch asImageIn contrast tophotographIt is also used as a word to refer to the video that was made, and this article will explain it as its meaning.

Live-action and anime

Anime directorOshii MamoruLive-action film directed bymovies"AvalonHe said, "I made it using live-action material.ア ニ メ ー シ ョ ンIs. " Even if you take a live-action shot,Slow motionThere is also a view that changing the timing with such things can be called animation, and it is expected that the definition of this word will change in the future.

However, since the animation itself is originally only one form of special technology, animation using live-action material is simplySpecial effects=SFXThere is also an opinion that it may be.

Oshii's view is thought to be due to the fact that in Japan there is a stronger tendency to separate the images actually shot as "live-action" in a way that differentiates them as genres rather than techniques when they are called animation and live-action.AmericaIn such cases, when animation becomes popular, it is quite common to visualize it on live-action media, and it seems that such a distinction is not so necessary).

Combines both animation and live-actionFilm directorAs,Hideaki Anno,Oshii Mamoru,Katsuhiro OtomoIs typical.

Problems with live-action works in Japan

ItMedia's talent in "Japanese drama is out of the question with a weak awareness of the TV industry"Dave Specter"Compared to the United States, Japanese dramas are out of the question. (Omitted) American dramas take a lot of budget and time to produce. Terrestrial broadcasting andDVDConsidering future developments such as conversion, we gather the best screenwriters and casts to make a highly complete drama. Of course, it will be interesting and it will sell all over the world. "

"Ultraman』, Etc.Sasaki MamoruAccording to the book "Portrait of a Postwar Hero-From" Bell Naruoka "to" Ultraman "", he made a statement that only the budget of the Japanese media has not progressed.Iwanami Shoten), Basically, not only live-action film but the entire Japanese video work is produced on a low budget, so the prosperity of the media of animation in Japan is basically low-budget and looks more like a live-action film. There is a lot to follow the point.

By the way, if you make it with a generous budget like Dave, it will sell all over the world, but things are not so simple. because,AsianThis is because the works that appear in the main are not liked in English-speaking countries. The worldwide hit "Power Ranger]Toei OfSuper squadron seriesThat's why only scenes such as heroes, monsters, and robots are used.[1].. Also in the United States, "Ultra seven"thanAustralia"Almost a Western cast shot inUltraman GIn some cases, the audience rating was higher.

On the other hand, animation andComicThen, the fact that the race cannot be identified by the appearance of the character is one of the reasons why it is selling worldwide, and these works that were hit worldwideHollywoodIt is said that making a live-action movie with such a thing has the advantage that buying the rights to those works saves the budget rather than spending a huge budget to think about the story (however, Japanese animation and comics). It costs a huge budget to visualize the movie as it is, so it is said that a remake of the Japanese movie J Horror is easier to make).
