Author: Yoneda Kou
I actually cried after I finished watching it. It stems from the helplessness and desolation of the story itself, and from the fact that I'm the author too. I'm very grateful for having my work turned into images and sounds.
Director: Makita Kaori
There's only a few days left until the release of the movie. And for some reason, it doesn't really feel real somehow.
All the staff, cast, and artists have worked really hard in order to bring the atmosphere and mood of the original manga to life. For the fans of the series, and for the people watching the movie for the first time, please do watch over Yashiro and Domeki throughout their trajectory.
Script: Seko Hiroshi
The pain that Yashiro is holding inside him is something unspeakable of. It something painful and complicated that can't be easily explained in words.
At the same time, it is something that we all have that inside us (whether we are aware of it or not). That's why I think many people will be able to relate to Yashiro and this movie somehow. I find it hard to argue against the fact that Domeki felt this way as well.
