Kawaguchi revealed that there was a scene where Hayashi and Fuchikami had to kiss onscreen and joked that Hayashi didn't seem to mind it at all. She also praised him for having the best of both worlds in him with a masculine side and a gender-neutral type of gentleness in his character. In response, Hayashi recounted that the kiss ended up being more intense than what was described in the script which led Fuchikami to remark jokingly that the kiss tasted good.
In line with the theme of bittersweet, the cast were asked about the things they have to overcome in real life. Kawaguchi said that she didn't eat raw oysters in the past until she went to a tempura shop and was strongly recommended to give it a shot by the staff there. Since then, she has grown to love raw oysters. As for Hayashi, he didn't like umeboshi at all but happened to eat it yesterday in his cold noodles. It turned out to be delicious especially when eaten during summer and it's said that people won't get stung by mosquitoes after eating umeboshi.
The movie will be shown in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan from mid October and will also be participating in the Singapore Japanese Film Festival this month (actually, it's this Saturday and Sunday) and Hawaii International Film Festival. With regard to this, Kawaguchi said that she is very happy about this and hopes that there will be many people overseas who can watch their movie.
