miwa mentioned that when she read the script, she was so saddened by the ending that she kept crying. As compared to when she sings her own songs, she finds it interesting to be singing it with a band. Although this is already the second movie she is acting in, miwa expressed her worry about having to say so many lines this time due to her inexperience but is glad to work with the cast of which many including Sakaguchi are about the same age as her.
Sakaguchi who is playing a guitar for the first time, commented that having to sing with a guitar in front of an audience is something he had never experienced before. However, he hopes to put up a good performance so will spend time trying to get better at it. As for his co-star miwa, he commented that it should be an enjoyable experience to work with her on this movie.
