In relation to the drama's caption of being unable to forgive someone more than the culprit behind the lead character's plight, Tanabe was asked if he has any recent episode when he felt the same way. He cited that he had recently drawn a picture of an eagle flying in the sky but his friend had mistaken the eagle for a sparrow so it made him feel disappointed. As for Nakagoshi who plays Tanabe's wife in the drama, she said that she's really poor at remembering numbers and to date, she still doesn't remember her own elder sister's birthday. As such, she is trying to overcome this by writing the birthdays of those around her in her notebook. When asked about her impression of Tanabe since this is the first time they have worked together, Nakagoshi praised her co-star for being a very gentle person and gets inspiration for his art works everywhere. When they were out for location shooting, Tanabe spotted a maidenhair tree which the leaves had already turned red and exclaimed that it looked very beautiful. However, the funny thing was that while they were admiring the beauty of nature, there was actually a scene being shot involving gangsters fighting one another but Tanabe was hardly bothered by the nearby distraction.
