Abstract

2016年夏天,霹靂與日本動畫界名人虛淵玄(1972–)合作推出《Thunderbolt Fantasy東離劍遊紀》布袋戲,口白分日語版與臺語版兩種,日語版委由日本專業聲優團隊配音,臺語版則由「八音才子」黃文擇(1956–)的兒子黃匯峰(1979–)一人擔綱所有男角演出。日語版於201678起在日本首播,臺灣則由「巴哈姆特動畫瘋」與「愛奇藝」臺灣站進行聯播;臺語版則於2016713930在臺灣發行販售,共13章、每章23分鐘。這部臺、日有史以來首部合拍的布袋戲,一推出即得到年輕觀眾的一致好評,收看非常踴躍,一掃霹靂2015年《奇人密碼》慘賠的陰影。本文特以《Thunderbolt Fantasy東離劍遊紀》與霹靂劇集比較,先考述臺日合作拍攝源由及混搭磨配狀況,再進一步析論《Thunderbolt Fantasy東離劍遊紀》的劇本營構、人偶妝扮與拍攝、口白配音等這三大方面的演藝特質,以了解其殊異與成功之處。
In the summer of 2016, Pili made a crossover with the Japanese anime celebrity Urobuchi Gen (1972-), releasing the puppetry Thunderbolt Fantasy: Dongli jianyou ji (Thunderbolt Fantasy: Sword Travels in the East). There are two versions of dubbing of this puppetry TV series: Japanese and Taiwanese. The Japanese version was dubbed by a professional voice acting crew in Japan, while in the Taiwanese version, the male character’s role was solely dubbed by Huang Huifong (1979-), the son of Huang Wenze, aka “the eight-tone talent” (1956-). The Japanese version was premiered on July 8, 2016 in Japan, and simulcast by two websites, Ba-ha-mu-te donghua fong and iQIYI (Taiwan site) in Taiwan. The Taiwanese version was published and sold in Taiwan from July 13 to September 30, 2016, containing 13 episodes, 23 minutes per episode. This unprecedented crossover puppetry made together by Taiwan and Japan teams was well received by the young audience once it was released. Its high viewership rates had swept away the shadow of Pili’s failed box office, The Arti: The Adventure Begins in 2015. This essay focuses on the comparison between Thunderbolt Fantasy: Dongli jianyou ji and the original series of Pili puppetry. Firstly, the reasons for this Taiwan-Japan cooperation and the circumstances of the fusion and run-in of different elements are traced. Next, regarding the three main characteristics of the performing arts of Thunderbolt Fantasy: Dongli jianyou ji, the construction of the script, the dressing-up and filming of the puppets, and the dubbing are analyzed in detail in order to understand its particularity and how its success was achieved.
