To commemorate his debut 25th anniversary, actor Kamiki Ryunosuke will release an anniversary book titled "Omote Kamiki / Ura Kamiki" on September 25th.
This was announced on August 13th via a live broadcast on Kamiki's official Youtube channel. The book is being created as one part of his debut 25th anniversary project, and it will show the "front side" of Kamiki as an actor, as well as the "back side" of him as a regular 27-year-old man.
The anniversary book will feature words an illustration by Studio Ghibli's Suzuki Toshio along with a phrase written by Miyazaki Hayao. The illustration, as seen below, is a crying 'Boh' (voiced by Kamiki) from 'Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi' ('Spirited Away').
Additionally, Kamiki met with four actors that he has spent a lot of time in both public and private. He talks about the theory of acting with Sometani Shota, the actor that Kamiki respects the most. With Nakamura Hayato, his high school classmate and friend, they visited their alma mater Horikoshi High School. He also met up with his childhood friend Shida Mirai for the first time in a long time. Finally, he got worked up with Hongo Kanata talking about private matters. Footage of his meeting with these four actors will be included in the bonus DVD.
There are also interviews with Miike Takashi, Shinkai Makoto, and Sato Takeru, as well as messages from Nakai Kiichi, Ueto Aya, Yoshizawa Ryo, Perfume, Hosoda Mamoru, and more. Finally, the book will include an interview with his mother and a picture of the two. The covers, as seen below, were designed by graphic designer Sato Taku.
For those who purchase the book, there will be an online talk show on October 3rd, then a private story time on the 4th in which fans will have the opportunity to talk to Kamiki one on one via video call. To promote the anniversary book, he will launch an official Instagram account for a limited time. There will also be special anniversary goods for sale.
