Animage April 2013: Highlight: El Dorado 02 Omega – Taniyama Kishou (Alpha), Ise Mariya (Beta), Tai Yuuki (Gamma), Konishi Katsuyuki (Zanark) interview, Kitahara Sayaka (Sorano Aoi) interview w/ summaries

Posters (those without access will not see the image):


✿ Taniyama and Ise had troubles grasping their characters’ personalities at first. Taniyama kept trying to put emotion into Alpha but was instructed to take it all out. Ise was only told that her character had two personalities, A and B, and the A personality (naive, innocent) was much more difficult for her than the B personality. About Gamma’s “Smart”, the only explanation for its use is that it’s similar to “Roger”. Zanark, on the other hand, didn’t give any particular frustration for Konishi, because he’s just… a lovable idiot.
✿ Ise auditioned for other characters as well but was assigned Beta. Taniyama and Konishi were requested to do their roles.
✿ Tai mourns over how Gamma never got to used Avatar Armed or actually be a team captain.
✿ Omega Attack was really hard to say in sync. They had to retake it a whole bunch of times and they don’t even remember when they finally got it.

Interview to be continued in Prince Animage.

    Thanks~ :D Voicing the ProtoOmega members must have been fun and painful.
    Though I don’t like how they use Aoi’s “picture” to sell the cds. Maybe it’s just me, but I like the endings more when they give some role to the other managers or players, like in Bokutachi no Shiro or the new Seishun no Oden.

    • Yeah, i dunno the politics behind the music production but they seemed set on producing kitahara sayaka until recently XD We’ll see where it goes comes galaxy season~ i personally much prefer the group songs too XD
