『劇場版ポケットモンスター ミュウツーの逆襲』の仮MIX。
今回はプレスコ(先に台詞を収録してから絵作りをする。通常はアフレコ、アフターレコーディング。絵の後から台詞をあてる)なので、リアクションの足りな いところも確認。→

I've been working on the rough sound mix for Pocket Monsters the Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back!" since this morning. This mix includes the dialogue, sound effects, and some preliminary music.
And now we're looking back over it.
Since this movie is pre-scored (where we record the voices before animating the film. Usually (here in Japan) we do something called "afureko," or "after-recording." That's when we record the voices after the animation) we're also checking to make sure the reactions aren't lacking anywhere.

Mr. Mima refers to the 2019 film as Pocket Monsters the Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back!" instead of its correct title, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

さらに、効果の構成や音楽の組み立ても再チェック をする。
湯山監督の丁寧な、作品への拘りでもある。 プレスコという事もあり
『劇場版ポケットモンスター ミュウツーの逆襲』 乞うご期待!

I'm also re-checking to make sure the sound effects and music all mix well together.
And, well, director (Kunihiko) Yuyama's really particular about this one. And it's also pre-scored. So there's a lot to live up to.
Mr. Unshou Ishizuka's narration (for this movie) was newly recorded at around this time last year.
Mr. Ishizuka will live on through this movie.
Look forward to Pocket Monsters the Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back!"

More comments will be added as they become available.
