TMR Takanori Nishikawa talks passionately about anime at "Anime Mirai 2014"

The Agency for Cultural Affairs' animator development project Anime Mirai 2014 had a talk show on the 22nd, as the event's public relations ambassador T.M. Revolution - Takanori Nishikawa was on hand to talk about and discuss the future possibilities of anime.

The Anime Mirai project, which kicked off in 2010, called for original animated features from anime production houses within the country. The 4 companies which were selected will then proceed to develop their animators with potential for the future and create an original short-featured anime. This year, Ultra Super Pictures, A-1 Pictures, Shinei Animation, and STUDIO4℃ were chosen, and are currently working diligently on the project.

Nishikawa, a huge anime fan, talked about Kuro no su -Chronos-, which is animator Naoyuki Onda's first shot at directing an anime: "Onda-san has worked on the animation for all these historical animes from Sunrise. Of the recent ones, I especially loved Psycho-Pass. It was a work of art.". As Nishikawa started to talk in detail about the anime, Nishikawa told the people in attendance who were not able to follow his talk: "I'm getting so happy and worked up just talking about anime. You guys are too quiet!".

(Continued from >>1) 
Nishikawa continues: "I also feel the same towards the development of young blood. We even have a 'young blood' slot at the Inazuma Rock Festival, and we're continously looking for new artists as well. We have kept on doing this for new acts to emerge. We share the same aspirations with Anime Mirai.".

It was also announced on this day that Anime Mirai will be established as an incorporated body, to which Nishikawa comments: "This is wonderful! With this, they can cooperate better in various projects.". As its first project, the 12 anime works that were produced by Anime Mirai during the past 3 years will be available for rent at TSUTAYA.

Nishikawa continues: "It's also fun to see how some of the names that you will see in these Anime Mirai projects will eventually make their way into the movie credits as well as the staff credits on TV animes in the future. There's nothing but happiness when you come to like anime!".

TM Revolution will be turning 43 this year, yo ww

I thought it was Ametalk or something

Well of course, once you establish yourself as an anisong singer, you might not be able to earn insane amounts but at least you'll keep on earning steadily for a long time. Most visual-kei guys who were able to generate hits when they were young will just decline once they become old. Like Izam.

I just can't stand Moe~ anime shows.
Those things give me goosebumps.
14: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 07:36:43.79 ID:EPi+DXQy0


You'd definitely want to turn your eyes away from that atmosphere where you can totally feel the unique blend of the producers and the Moe~ota's fantasies.

And I hate how the anime industry is revolving around those kinds of things, now. I'm not sure if that's how they want to stir up the viewer's fantasies these days. Everything is about these unique characters. Even when you have Robo-animes, the robots are just like decorations while the stories revolve around the characters. And to top it off, the character designs are all targeted towards the Moe~ otas.

Then either graduate from anime or keep on watching your old stuff, gramps.
61: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 17:31:41.14 ID:EPi+DXQy0
Because I'm not a brainless, omnivorous Moe~ pig like you.
11: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 07:22:53.71 ID:SbP6cJA+0
I'd like to try imitating TMR, but it might be really troublesome when typhoons will actually come
18: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:20:24.41 ID:NzpYSDd70
He has no more rock elements whatsoever.
Well, that's that though if he says that he's never had it in the first place.
19: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:20:55.39 ID:TXAcMfJe0
TM-san must be so desperate since he's now clinging onto the anime industry
26: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:09:31.95 ID:0slUPg4S0
You're one of the guys who wants to mock him for clinging onto something, but it's already been 10 years since Gundam SEED. Even I have aged.
20: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:21:58.81 ID:iXoegwTx0
He's over 40?
My dad is over 60, records all these late night animes, and watches each and every one of them, you know.
24: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:38:27.42 ID:8sPT5xw2O
What's his line of work?
22: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:34:27.22 ID:OGVtp1jN0
Nishikawa is the pride of the ani-otas
23: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:37:19.86 ID:4w0145WY0

All these celebrities now are so desperate about going on TV as "the celebrity who likes ___ or who's a specialist in ____"

But in reality, all they know are the big titles from these popular shonen manga publications like Jump and Magazine.
28: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:15:33.89 ID:vmz3HFZA0
They're thinking that they're fine as long as they talk about One Piece and HunterxHunter
25: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 08:39:15.78 ID:rWc5Tf7x0
Nishikawa's singing is really amazing.
The volume of his voice is amazing too.

27: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:14:28.27 ID:n+u2/k6t0
But he's just a "business ani-ota" who actually prefers female talents to anime
29: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:34:14.62 ID:8dduw9NNO
Liking women is on a different vector from liking anime so you can have that at the same time.
It's probably something that >>27 doesn't understand because he just goes "2D: ooooh, ahhhh 3D: grossssss wwww", but there are normal people who like real women and just like anime as a hobby.
30: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:39:35.03 ID:OxEG4uCe0
Because he's the guy who's aiming to become Ichiro Mizuki after all.
31: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 09:40:38.35 ID:SSm+h1cC0
Nishikawa-sensei isn't "clinging on" to anime, he's always been an otaku
33: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 10:27:13.32 ID:27BbK6Uy0


There's no way that a person who records all animes including the late night ones and watches all first episodes then decides which he'll keep watching and which he'll abandon is just a "business otaku".

Other anime otakus, myself included, don't go that far www
51: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 13:24:01.75 ID:wTUuriX1O
Even Chiaki Kuriyama does that w
She even refers to the ending staff names and the studio names when choosing which she will watch.
34: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 10:29:52.41 ID:8LZUXcPm0

Personality aside, Nishikawa is a good singer.
Nishikawa's the only 43-year-old who can sing with that volume without going off pitch.

I approve of his singing ability.
35: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 10:32:30.26 ID:vpa44FaoO
His version of "Memeshikute" was even better than the original

38: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 10:41:51.47 ID:wAJW0+MY0
Err, this actually looks sarcastic to me w
41: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 11:08:00.80 ID:P9krAHG40
I LOL'd at the Sengoku whatchamacallit CD jacket.
SCANDAL looks like the real things but Nishikawa was too beautified in that one.
45: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 12:53:54.00 ID:Y86ars9r0
Nishikawa's just earning through anime, but he himself isn't an ani-wota
46: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 13:14:57.60 ID:SOh3bGKlO
I like L'Arc and Nishikawa's stance of "We'll do anything from commercial songs to anime songs".
On the other hand, there was this fool called YUI who took a "hiatus" because she didn't want to be an actress nor do anime songs, despite being a startoff.
52: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 13:27:29.76 ID:SSm+h1cC0
On the other hand, when Rika Adachi was asked, "What anime are you watching this season?", she answered over half of the animes that started during that particular season

60: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 17:28:58.81 ID:wTUuriX1O
She said that she watches around 30 episodes a week. Tone it down a bit! w
53: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 14:09:22.03 ID:cZgmWMk60
There's no way that a person like him who knows things from the major stuff to even NHK's 5-minute anime Hanakappa is a "business otaku". I was actually worried at his debut interview when he said that he's an anime otaku who likes Escaflowne w
Those were still the times when anime otakus were hated. To think that the day would come when people will say that he's just hanging onto anime.
62: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/23(木) 17:31:48.54 ID:eguJVMXk0
I do think that this person is pretty popular with the ladies, especially with this kind of personality.
He's good.
