For those of you who do not know that movie, Despicable Me is an animated movie produced by Universal studio. The movie is scheduled to air in Japanese cinemas sometime in September 2013.

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

In the sequel, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help them fight a villain named Eduardo.

It was announced on April 4th that Mika Nakashima will play the voice of Lucy Wilde, an Anti-Villain League agent.
It is a first for Mika, who said she accepted the challenge quite surprisingly.
She also answered a couple of questions during the announcement conference.

Q: Well, I would like to introduce the new cast. In addition to the two we already presented before, a new friend joined! Mrs. Nakashima Mika playing the role of Lucy Wilde, who falls in love with Gru!
Nakashima: I’m so nervous as it is my first time dubbing, I’ll do my utter best.

(talking about the character’s relationships)
Q: Nakashima could become the mother of little Agnes!
Nakashima: it’s weird to think that I came to the age at which I could actually become a mother, it’s so shocking! (laughs)

Q: it was your first challenge as a voice actor! How was it?
Nakashima: I really couldn’t imagine it would be that difficult to handle. I thought I would be fine with a bit of practice.

Q: The title for the movie includes a « one-shot » Crisis (Japanese title is « Gru’s one shot minion crisis »), have you faced one recently?
Nakashima: I was on the phone while riding the Shinkansen and I missed my station. It was a crisis to me but I wasn’t really in danger.

Hi all!

I know this is a bit last minute, but in case any of you see this message in time, I’m organizing a quick project to celebrate Mika-chan’s 30th Birthday, coming in about 5 days.

It’s simple, I’m currently working on an interface that will allow you to leave a message to Mika (kinda like what her BBS was for) and it’ll also display pictures of fans from all over the world holding any Mika related item (a CD, a DVD, a picture you printed out, a magazine, anything). It doesn’t matter if you clearly show your face or not, I know some of you might not want your face displayed publicly, so you can hide under LIFE’s artwork cover for example (I know some fans did in the past, it was a pretty cool idea!).

Anyways, the goal is to show your love for Mika~~

To do so, please email me your picture (or you can send it via the forums or the facebook page) -> utena[@] (please remove the [ ] )

I received about 10 pictures as of now, let’s make this year counts together!!
