[Below are the Comments]
[Kaeru (Frog): Yamada Yuuki]
I read the original manga as it was a big trend, and I realized the importance of our daily life, and I believe this title definitely has the power to bring changes to the way we live. When I first encountered the movie’s original character Frog, and read the script, I felt a sense of peculiarity. I also think that the first impression of this character will make everyone say “Who’s this guy?” However, this character is the “Fresh Wind” for the story.
I wish I could become a following wind for people who experienced and carries the sadness for being leftover, the meeting and parting. Also, even the most active and energetic people also have concerns, and I wish every feels that there is always someone around from my acting of the Frog.
[Inu (Dog): First Summer Uika]
As I enjoyed the original manga every day in real-time, I have never dreamt of joining the world myself and see the Crocodile and others move!
Within the story, Inu (Dog) was one of my favorite characters that made the story even more vibrant. A duet between the Mole is one that I am looking forward to. I will try my best to show the bright and cute atmosphere of the Dog-san!
[Baito-chan (Part-timer-chan): Simizu Kurumi]
It is my greatest honor to be part of “100 Wani,” which I enjoyed every morning as part of the special broadcast. Also, it is a great honor to have this title be my first voicing job!
Personally, I have not met some titles that deliver hidden messages in recent years, however, this manga is a great title that allows people to imagine various feelings depending on the readers. Despite being the worst time [due to the pandemic], I believe this title helped people to realize important things around us. I hope this movie could be seen and enjoyed by a lot of people regardless of age!

Since the death of Crocodile-Kun, the time has passed like a wild wind. Not to treat my feels and life as if it is not important. Not to get my heart soaked by anger or anxiety. To somehow continue from today to tomorrow. And realizing how important and precious these are. These are the things that I have been thinking about.
It is the will that the word “TSUZUKU” holds. The alive will always be the ones that are “Leftover.” Despite knowing the sadness of parting, we must be ready to welcome the day after.
I want my present and my stories to reach the heart of those who live every day with their best effort, through this song.
When I first encountered this movie, there were no songs or colors, and it almost seemed like a Kamishibai (Paper Play). However, I was following with tears.
The daily life that Crocodile-Kun spent was exactly the life that we were encountering every day.
The story of this movie is full of kindness that highlights the importance of being “alive.”
It will be great if the song could carefully approach this precious daily life.
