Full commentary below
It’s been five months since the release.
I am surprised to hear that many people are still coming to see the movie and it became a long run, and at the same time, I am filled with a sense of gratitude that I cannot express in words. We are almost to the end of the film.
I look forward to seeing you all again as Yuta Okkotsu sometime soon.
