Masaharu Fukuyama, singer-songwriter and actor, is the host of TOKYO FM’s “Fuku no Radio” show. The broadcast on Saturday September 10 is a special just before the release of the Galileo film “Silence Parade”! Kazuki Kitamura, an actor who played Shunpei Kusanagi, a detective from the Metropolitan Police Department’s First Investigation Division, who is an indispensable character in the series, was a university student of genius physicist Manabu Yukawa played by Mr. Fukuyama. .
The lecture, which included questions for Mr. Kitamura from listeners, was lively with various topics. Coffee Milk (42, office worker), who lives in Ibaraki Prefecture, sent me an email saying, “I wanted to know what you thought when you received the script (for this job) and that you have read it.” paddy field. Fukuyama: What was your impression when you first read the script (preliminary manuscript) of “Silence Parade”? Kitamura: I had read the original, so the first thing I thought of before reading it was, “How are you going to make a movie out of this?” So when I read the script I thought it was wonderful. I thought that was wonderful. When I read a script, I look at it objectively. Fukuyama: Rather than as Kusanagi, who plays the role, I want to experience the whole “Silence Parade” as a story first. Kitamura: Yes. After all, even when I read the original work, I read Kusanagi like someone else. in my head. Fukuyama: Who is it exactly? Kitamura: Yes, precisely. It’s different depending on the job. Fukuyama: Huh, that’s right! Kitamura: I see in my head that the person who is not me is moving, and I have an overview of “I wonder if it will be effective if I do it this way.” Fukuyama: That’s interesting. Kitamura: You can see others better than yourself. Fukuyama: Certainly. That’s how I read the script and felt the world of the original was expressed beautifully. Kitamura: Yes. And then I read it from Yukawa’s point of view. When it comes to movies, when I put myself in the audience’s shoes, I think about where to watch it. So read from many different angles. That way, as I continue to look at things from a different point of view than mine, I feel like the image of the character forms naturally. Fukuyama: So you’re reading while watching how Kusanagi’s role will work in this work. Kitamura: Yes. Fukuyama: This time, I definitely read with the Namiki family people. Kitamura: You go, no matter what. No matter where you read it, it was painful this time. And the subject is KOH+’s “Hitotsuboshi”, which is the movie’s theme song. Kitamura: I also listen to “Hitotsuboshi” from different angles. After watching the movie, you try to understand the feelings of each character. At that time, I would like you to listen to this “Hitotsuboshi” again. I will definitely cry. I will definitely be beaten by the last words of #1. The same goes for the second word. “Dreams are fragile and broken, and no matter how many times you pick up the pieces of reality, they won’t come back to the original dream.” It’s true. I think, “What a sad thing to sing, artist Masaharu Fukuyama!” Fukuyama: I’m so honored to have you signed up (laughs). On the side that sent the music, I couldn’t be happier. It’s the same with “Hitotsuboshi”, but I heard that you got too involved in “Moai” and you feel emotionally unstable (laughs). Kitamura: I’ve been crying since early morning. Every time I listen to it, I think what a beautiful song. During this time, I had the opportunity to listen to it live. Fukuyama: I can’t say too much yet, but it was during the recording of a TV special. Kitamura: I have never been so moved by someone’s singing. Speaking from the perspective of a selfish fan, I thought, “That’s singing for me. And here is “beloved”. So–. Kitamura: This, this, this, this. It makes me want to cry, so stop (laughs). Now I think “Moai” is my song, not Mr. Fukuyama’s song. Fukuyama: It’s the happiest way for the music to finally reach us. After all, music is something you create for yourself in the beginning. Once released, it becomes everyone’s song. And in the end, it becomes a song just for that person. It’s the happiest ending to the song’s journey. I am very happy that this is happening. I have a song like that myself. When I was 17 or 18 at the time, I wondered why SION-san’s “SORRY BABY” could understand my feelings so well. That’s my song Finally, I’m done with the subject of what kind of work this movie is. Fukuyama: Would you like everyone to see this Silent Parade movie? Kitamura: I think touching this work, there is a feeling that everyone can relate to. for important people. So I would like you to take a closer look. Fukuyama: The other day, a preview was held to announce the end of the movie, and everyone got to see it for the first time. As I read everyone’s comments posted on Twitter, etc., there was one thing that made me think, “That’s the kind of movie it was.” It’s a sad and painful film, but what this film wants to convey is “something warm”. It’s a series of sad scenes, but what’s left at the end? It is a warm heart that people think of people. Kitamura: The other side of love. Sadness and pain are feelings that come from knowing love, don’t you think? Precisely because there is love in this film, I think it’s the kind of work that shows all the facets of it and ultimately proves that there is love in everyone’s actions. . Fukuyama: Also, by getting feedback from everyone who has seen the movie, we will also be able to know what this movie was like. It is complete only after seeing it. Please take a look. * The Galileo film “Parade of Silence” will be released on Friday, September 16. And the next day, the 17th (Saturday), the brand new SP drama “Galileo Forbidden Magic” will air. Please enjoy it too. Of course, KOH+’s latest EP “Hitotsuboshi ~Galileo Collection 2007-2022~” is also available! This will be released on Wednesday, September 14.
