[Natsumi Fujiwara (role of Toya Sagami)]
At last, the new work by Director Iso is … !! I was very excited about it, and I became more involved, so I challenged the recording with a lot of surprise and joy.
This time, the universe is set in the future a little more than now, but the excitement that this kind of thing may really be realized in the future a little ahead, as I experienced at the time of “Denno Coil”, is this work. However, it is studded with a lot, so I hope you will feel the excitement and at the same time be interested in the universe as much as possible.
Please look forward to it! Thank you.
[Azumi Waki ​​(role of Nanase, B, Kokoroha)]
I played Kokoroha to the best of my ability. Azumi Waki! “The Orbital Children” is a work that makes us think about our future. Humans born on the moon, humans born on the earth, and AI will change the future … Someday, such a day may really come! Maybe it’s a story in the near future! I hope that as many people as possible will be interested in the universe through this work! I also want to try spacewalking someday (laughs)!
After recording, it took a lot of time to record. I recorded it while trying to communicate with the director in detail, so I think that I will be drawn into the character and the world view by that much. In addition, there are also lines and productions unique to Iso, who worked on “Denno Coil”, so I hope you enjoy it!
[Kensho Ono (role of Taiyo Tsukuba)]
I’m Kensho Ono, who played the ocean of Tsukuba. The ocean was a white hat hacker with a strong sense of justice, and it was a very rewarding role to have both an adult side and a child side, and to be shaken by whether to stick to his beliefs.
The work itself has a good tempo, and above all, it is a wonderful work that makes us think that we may be able to go to space someday. Please take a look!
[Chinatsu Akasaki (role of Miina Misasa)]
It was a dubbing that was reconstructed from the inside by scraping off unnecessary things. I think that I was able to take a closer look at the movement of the character’s mind and the expression of the physical condition unique to outer space by proceeding very carefully.
Please take a look at the breathtaking beauty of the universe and the boys and girls who confront the fear of the unknown!
[Yumiko Kobayashi (Dr. Tanegashima)]
It’s been 15 years since “Denno Coil”, and I’ve been excited about the new film directed by Iso since the audition. In the dubbing, there was acting guidance that was particular about every word, and the director, staff, all the cast, there was no way to put in the heat for this work …… !!
In this work, like the previous work “Denno Coil”, I played the role of a younger brother who was at the mercy of his sister. It was fun to play the role of a sloppy younger brother (laughs)
“The Orbital Children”, this work will burst the talent of director Mitsuo Iso in space !! Everyone !! Look forward to it !!
[Mariya Ise (role of Nasa / Houston)]
At the dubbing site, I was immersed in the world of Mitsuo Iso, and spent a unique time facing the character, the sound director, and the director Iso through trial and error.
It feels like I’m looking for a shapeless correct answer while floating in a wide universe in front of the microphone. In a word, it was [loneliness]. …… If this was the aim of the directors !? I want to speed up the answer.
The long-awaited new work by director Mitsuo Iso. Stay tuned !!!!
[Harusaruhi (theme song artist)]
This time, I, Harusaruhi, was in charge of the theme song of Mitsuo Iso’s latest animation “The Orbital Children”. For me, who grew up watching “Denno Coil” when I was little, I am very happy to be involved in the new work of Director Iso with music!
The theme song “Oarana” is a song with a taste that I have never sung before, and it was a challenge for me. It’s a wonderful song with a magnificent and beautiful story that matches the world of anime. I hope you enjoy it together with the anime at the movie theater or at home.
It was Harusaruhi. Well then.

In 2045, outer space where the Internet and AI became widespread. Boys and girls who come to a commercial station in Japan encounter a large-scale space accident that occurs and are left alone at the station by children. I can’t expect adult help anymore! Their lifeline is a narrow band that barely survived, SNS, low-intelligence AI of free apps, drones that can be operated with smartphones, etc. Can junior high school students survive the pinch by making full use of these !?
