Completion screening of WOWOW drama SP "Daikuukou 2013"
When Takeuchi first got the offer to star in this drama, she thought it was a very interesting and fun way of making a drama. However, once she got involved in the filming, she started to doubt why she agreed to it in the first place and was shocked at how tough it was to do it. Filming was done in April this year over six days at Matsumoto Airport (the actual filming took 5 days). Even though the script should have been ready for the cast before the actual filming, Takeuchi "complained" that she would only get it while on the way from Tokyo to Matsumoto and she would be on the verge of tears while trying to memorise her lines during the journey. As such, she said that she was representing the cast to ask Mitani to come up with the script faster next time but he just brushed off the topic by saying that he still came up with the script after all so it wasn't really an issue. When asked if Takeuchi would still like to take part in another Mitani work in this format, she said that she might consider it for a while but would still agree to take it on in the end.
