Kana Hanazawa Voices Japanese Girl in Taiwan’s First Giant Robot Anime Film Baryon

The world premiere screening of Taiwan’s first giant robot anime feature film 重甲機神: 神降臨/Baryon was held at Taichung International Animation Festival 2018 on October 11 as its opening film (the Chinese title literally means Heavy armored machine god: God descends). The plan for the 110-minute original film was launched by a production team in Taiwan in 2014.

 

And it was confirmed that popular Japanese anime voice actress Kana Hanazawa (Kuroneko in Oreimo, Mayuri Shiina in STEINS;GATE) voices a Japanese girl named Momoko Asanaga and speaks Chinese dialogue in the film. According to one of its two directors, 黄瀛洲/Jo-Jo, voice editing for the film’s finishing stage was done by acclaimed Japanese engineer Makoto Sumiya (Porco Rosso, Rebuild of Evangelion) in Japan.

“Baryon” synopsis:

 

When countless laser beams come down from the sky and destroy all the countries that hold the advanced

weapons, the world descends into chaos. Taiwan fortunately escapes the first wave of attack. People then

assume that the cities built underwater are immune to the invasion and therefore gather forces under the

sea to prepare for the counter-attack. However, they are unware of the sea monsters that will prove to be

the beginning of another nightmare…
