Hello, everyone! This is Takasugi.
Recently, Micchi’s become “Dark Micchi” or “Darkzane”
or a bunch of other names with ‘dark’ attached to them haha - Looking at the script, he’s certainly been doing some bad things… (；・∀・)
So, as the actor, I find myself wondering “What do the little kids think of all this?” and… Playing those mood swings is fun, but I’ve prepared myself.
"If they already hate Micchi, then isn’t the harm already done!?!?" is what I was ready for, but when we were filming, the kids called me "Micchi~~!!!" - I was like, "maybe Micchi will still be okay~?" and got kind of really happy haha
At events, too, everyone calls me “Micchi!” and it calms me down, and really lets me have even more fun playing the part haha
Alright, let’s post up some of the old Micchi pictures!!
This is an early Micchi picture from some interview filming!!! With an orange, reminding us of when Micchi was following Kouta-san… Back when I was still wearing the team hoodie….
I talk about this sometimes in interviews, too, but from the moment I was hired for Gaim, I knew Mitsuzane was going to be a character that changed.
So, for early Micchi, as much as possible, I pitched my voice higher and really did up the younger brother feel, so that the difference would be easier to create.
I did that in the beginning, then as he changed into Dark Micchi, I slowly lowered my voice more and more and changing the way I acted. It really left people with the impression that the character had changed.
This is the Dark Micchi transformation. Dark Micchi hasn’t worn the team hoodie at all, and has just been in plain clothes… (；・∀・)
It’s sad lol
Gaim has finally reached the last arc, so we’ll push right through to the end!
Please continue watching Gaim and Micchi.
