With 26 days remaining until the film’s debut, the official blog to promote Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” has updated with a few words from the voice of newcomer Tagoma, Kazuya Nakai, who probably says more here than he does in the movie:

こんにちは!ブルマよ。
映画公開まであと26日!
今日は劇場版の登場キャラクター、タゴマ役として出演していただいた中井和哉さんからコメントを頂戴したわよ!

今回の劇場版の出演が決まった時はビックリしました。
ジャンプフェスタの時、(2014年の12月20日に行われた)では知らなかったので、ステージの時に冗談で新しく登場するキャラを演じたいですよねって言ってたんですけど…(笑)。
もともとは他の役のオーディションを受けさせていただいたんですけど、決まったのはこのタゴマでこういうこともあるんだなって。

「ドラゴンボール」と僕が出演させてもらっている「ワンピース」は、作品同士なにか、親戚のように思えるところがあって、僕も不思議な縁を感じています。
どこかしら愛嬌があって憎めない悪役っているんですけど、そういう要素のない憎々しい悪役、本当の敵、強い敵の形がフリーザだとおもいます。
スキなく強いですし、強い前に怖いんですよね。本当に怖い人って実は笑ってるんだなって気がします。
タゴマは、フリーザの部下ではあるんですけど、本当のフリーザの強さを知らないという、ある意味、以前のTVシリーズでのフリーザの強さや恐ろしさを知らない今の若い子の代表のような感じですね。
是非、一緒にフリーザの恐怖を体験してもらえたらと思います。


Hey, Bulma here!
Just 26 days until the movie premieres!
Today we’ve got a comment from Kazuya Nakai, who voices one of the movie’s new characters, Tagoma!

I was really surprised when it was decided that I’d get a role in this new movie. Back during Jump Festa (December 20th, 2014) I still didn’t know anything about it, and when I was onstage I joked about how I’d like to play a new character…(laughs)

Originally I auditioned for a different role, but I was still satisfied to end up with Tagoma.

I’m in One Piece, and somehow it and Dragon Ball seem like they’re related in certain ways, and I feel an odd connection there myself.

There are bad guys who have something charming about them, so you don’t really hate them. But then there are bad guys who aren’t like that at all, ones you really hate. I think Freeza is one of those truly formidable enemies.

He may be strong, without any weak points, but more than that he’s scary. I feel like the really scary people are the ones who smile.

Despite being one of Freeza’s underlings, Tagoma really didn’t know just how strong Freeza truly was. So in a certain sense, I feel like he’s a stand-in for today’s kids who didn’t see the old TV series and so don’t know how powerful and scary Freeza is. I think we’ll all get to experience the terror of Freeza together.

The story for Revival of “F”, opening nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, is being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he is writing it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it will, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, will serve as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo will return from Battle of Gods and the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z will contribute a song alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” will be used as a “battle song” during the film. Revival of “F” is set to bring back Freeza and will also include two new characters (Sorbet and Tagoma), feature Beerus and Whis again from Battle of Gods, and much more.

We will continue to keep tabs on this blog and translate whatever news it reveals, so stay tuned…!
