KING OF PRISM VA Junta Terashima: „We Aim for Global Expansion in 2020“
Three days prior to its theatrical release in Japan, a premiere screening for KING OF PRISM ALL STARS – Prism Show☆Best 10 – was held at the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater in Tokyo on January 7, 2020. 31-year-old Junta Terashima, the voice of the anime’s protagonist Shin Ichijo, expressed his desire to expand the franchise worldwide at the stage.
According to Mantan Web, he said to the audience, „When the series started in 2016, four years from then was the year of the Olympics, so I hoped if it could continue that far…, but it’s 2020 now. People all over the world are paying attention to Japan. We want to be aware of overseas markets and aim for global expansion. And I hope the people in the world can dance „Daisuki Refrain“ (Shin Ichijo‘ s new song for the film) together with me.“
He also chose „変“ (strange) to express the KING OF PRISM franchise in one Chinese character. „It’s a strange series after all. It’s weird, but I think everything started with something funny but interesting. However, it has changed to something indispensable as the world has changed. What I am doing hasn’t changed from the previous Pretty Rhythm series, but the surroundings have changed and I have accepted it.“
