On April 4th, AKB48 sub-unit Watarirouka Hashiritai 7 attended a special screening for the upcoming animated film, ‘Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Arashi wo Yobu! Ora to Uchuu no Princess’.

The film commemorates the 20th anniversary of ‘Eiga Crayon Shin-chan’, and its story revolves around Shin-chan and his family going out into space. Watarirouka Hashirai 7 sings the movie’s theme song, “Shounen yo Uso wo Tsuke!“, which will be released as a single on May 30th.

Before the girls hit the stage, Shin-chan made an appearance and livened up the crowd saying, “Aside from my family, my friends are here today. I wonder if I now have the support from a wide range of audiences.

Upon seeing Shin-chan, member Watanabe Mayu confessed, “I like Shin-chan’s butt.” Meanwhile, Urano Kazumi, who recently joined the group, expressed, “I was able to participate during the 15th anniversary as a part of AKB48. Five years later, I’m very happy to be able to attend the event with Shin-chan again.

When Iwasa Misaki commented, “I like how he’s a mood maker“, Shin-chan revealed, “Will you understand me? It’s not that I like acting foolish. I’ve been 5 years old for 20 years in order to calm everybody.

‘Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Arashi wo Yobu! Ora to Uchuu no Princess’ will open in theaters on April 14th.
