Recently, Anime Factory unveiled the cast of voice actors who will give voice to the protagonists in The First Slam Dunk with a dedicated trailer: let’s find out all the details together in this article
Anime Factory, a label owned by Plaion Pictures, reveals the cast of Italian voice actors who will give voice to the protagonists of the anime film The First Slam Dunk, written and directed by the well-known mangaka Takehiko Inoue, former creator of the acclaimed original manga and here in his first attempt as a director. We have prepared a special for you, pending the arrival of the film in theaters, which you can reach by clicking here.
The First Slam Dunk takes the viewer onto the pitch, right into the match, where point guard Ryota Miyagi and the rest of the Shohoku team – made up of Hanamichi Sakuragi, Kaede Rukawa, Takenori Akagi and Hisashi Mitsui – are about to bring to life one of the most exciting matches ever seen on the big screen, but also back in time, thanks to unpublished flashbacks that reveal some of the most significant memories of Ryota’s past – never told by Inoue to date. As the director himself underlined:
The characters lived on in me even after the series ended. […] Also, as I myself have changed since the manga serialization, there are perspectives that I wanted to describe but wasn’t able to fully illustrate at the time, and perspectives that weren’t visible to me at the time. I hope you enjoy this as a new Slam Dunk, even if it’s a Slam Dunk with new elements.
