In addition to producing the film “enjiya reDESIGN” Episode 1・Episode 2, which premiered on November 30th, 2019 at Tollywood in Shimokitazawa, our company also produced and mixed the entire soundtrack.
We arranged several new tracks that maintained the tenor and taste of the earlier “enjiya” in an updated, modern style that were embraced by the fans and received great acclaim.
The compositions and arrangements were handled by Takuya Hanaoka – a member of our staff. The music producer was Shinichi Sakamoto, also a member of our staff.
In conjunction with the theatrical release, we also put the original soundtrack CD out for sale in a limited edition, only available in movie theaters.
The film “enjiya reDESIGN” is the latest iteration of the legendary independent film “enjiya”, which became a widespread phenomenon in the early 2000s.
The star-studded cast includes Kosuke Imai, who starred in the earlier “enjiya”, Shinji Kasahara (who has played roles such as TimeFire in “Mirai Sentai Timeranger”), and Nao (who made her big break in “Your Turn to Kill”). The film was unveiled in movie theaters in TV drama serialized form – as Episode 1 and Episode 2.
The film acquired widespread, passionate support, with fans who had known and loved the earlier film gathering from all over the country, joined by new and younger fans who had become newly initiated into the experience. During the New Year holiday in 2020, Tollywood saw enthusiastic ticket sales over several days.
The film’s premiere at Theater Seven in Osaka was sold out, leading to additional showtimes quickly being arranged, and new box office records set.
