The special comment from the director Takahashi Wataru
Q. What do you think after you watched the completed video?
I did not think that I could create work only with Hiroshi's hidden feelings, so this was a new experience. I once again thought about Nohara Hiroshi, and I concluded that he is a friendly dad who looks awesome, but actually not so much.
I believe he had to spend busy days by raising a child while working outside the home, but I think how he complains and smells is charming, in other words, he makes me comfortable. He can show such true feelings because his family, including his wife Misae, Shinnosuke, and Himawari accept him to the fullest. They are such a wonderful family.
—Please tell us the highlight of this video.
Please take a close look at the growth of all family members, since it depicts 5 years of Nohara family. I think 5 years from the birth of a child is like experiencing a storm, but there are both happy and sad incidents during those 5 years. I think how this video depicts multiple emotions through the father Nohara Hiroshi is the point to pay attention to.
—Please tell us the message in this video.
I wanted to deliver a feeling with warmth, hard work and courage through the life of Hiroshi. Also, there are funny scenes in the video, so please laugh together with Nohara family.
—Takahashi-san, we believe that you have participated in multiple “Crayon Shin-chan” series, but this is the first time for you to direct the web video. What is the difference between the movie version?
Simple to say, it is the length. It was difficult to deliver the message with a given time since the web anime is shorter compared to the movie. I created this video by thinking that I am going to create a promotion movie for the movie called “Story of Nohara Hiroshi”. Also, since the staff was whom I have worked together for a long time, so I could create the video being relaxed.
—Could you send the message to “Crayon Shin-chan” fans around Japan.
I think this video gives you power. Please say “thank you” to your dads. I think “thank you” will make Japan brighter.
