Endo revealed that Ebina is a character which he likes a lot especially since he thinks that this is what got him a lot of offers to play miserable or pitiful characters in dramas and CMs. Despite his fierce appearance, Ebina is viewed as a typical middle-level manager where he can't fight back against his bosses and yet bullies those below them. When Season 4 began last month, there were fans who wanted to see Endo back as Ebina again thus making it possible to return as a guest star. Endo expressed his eagerness to interact with Nishida again in the drama and is excited about the ad libs which the latter might throw at his way again. Yonekura also commented that she is very excited about Endo's long-awaited return to the drama although it's a pity that he will be appearing for two episodes only.
