According to Yamazaki, he is looking forward to portraying the character of Shuusei Kugayama and he also feels a lot of pressure from taking the role. He feels challenged at maintaining the character’s exterior while showing the audience that he actually feels differently from what he shows (which is your typical tsundere attitide). He also looks forward to working with Ayame Goriki who will be playing Aoi Nishimori, the story’s female lead. He then promises that he won’t betray everyone’s expectations and adds that the audience should look forward to watching the movie.
