Below are comments from directors Furuya and Yasuhiko.
[Toru Furuya (role of Amuro Ray)]
I never thought that “Kukurusu Doan no Shima” would be a movie.
After 43 years, it is only a voice actor to be able to play Amuro, a 15-year-old who fights in Gundam again, in the movie version.
He spent a lot of time rehearsing at his home during the dubbing.
When he finished watching the footage of the last scene, he unexpectedly burst into tears.
Very realistic mobile suit behavior, expressive characters, and a truly attractive work unique to director Yasuhiko.
[Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (Director)]
―― “Mobile Suit Gundam” is a story in which unnamed “little people” help each other to fight against huge enemies and live in a ruthless fate. There was one episode in the old television series that best represented those shades. However, due to various reasons, the story has been removed from the overall flow. Now, the staff who love Gundam’s original intentions shed light on it and re-speak. Please look. “Island of Kukurus Doan”.
