Why They don't use the orginal character's voice?

And why Furuya-san is the narrator if he dosen't get Amuro as role?

They're taking this 35th anniversary thing awful serious. It probably wouldn't be Sunrise if it didn't involve just charging straight ahead full force with absolute confidence and zeal. I like the idea of Megumi Han getting to inherit the Lalah role too while Keiko Han gets to still be around and do some narrating.
